The newly-opened Lax. Retreat at The Linc KL is a stylish oasis that’s truly relaxing in every sense.
Indulging in a spa day is a rare treat you give yourself so of course, making the best out of it should be your main priority. But sometimes, the spa you pick might not meet all your requirements, despite their best efforts and the hefty price tag that comes along with it.
This is where Lax. comes in. Recognising that every woman has different preferences and beauty needs, its founders, sisters Mardhiah and Labiba Nadwa Latiff, set out to redefine the self-care experience by offering customisable treatments at affordable prices. Their wellness centre, made specifically for women, opened its doors to the public on the 6th of March this year.
The first and most notable part of the spa is undeniably its interior. Designed by creative, branding and design agency, Studio Kanta, the space was fashioned with femininity in mind, featuring soft coral hues and curved accents that take serenity to another level. Every corner – from the manicure bar with pink marble top and glossy mint base, to the lounge area with custom-made rattan day beds, and vanity areas with selfie mirrors – is picture-perfect!
If the beautiful Insta- and TikTok-worthy space doesn’t do it for you, the treatments most definitely will.
Ranging from Face, Body and Nail services, you can choose to customise your treatment at every step of the way. Pick your own oil and scrub combos, scent to relax to, tunes to listen to, how bright your room should be and add-ons to accompany your main treatment. Complimentary tea is served after you’re done so you have more time to relax and bask in the beautiful ambience of the spa.
I tried The Lax. Signature, a 60- or 90-minute Nusantara-inspired body massage that combines expert kneading techniques and thumb pressure to loosen tight muscles and relieve tension. Accompanied by lo-fi beats, dimmed lights, relaxing lavender aroma and an expert masseuse who was very detailed in her work (her name is Sherry), I quickly felt tension slipping away within the first 10 minutes and was completely rejuvenated once the massage was done.
Another thing to look forward to here is the selection of products. Familiar powerhouse names including OPI, Orly, Hollywood-approved IS Clinical and Biossential products are used in an array of specialised treatments offered.
If Lax. sounds like your kinda thing, you’ll happy to know that they offer membership prices so you can experience any treatment you want at a reduced cost. For exclusive Lax. Club perks, purchase membership at only RM39 per month or RM399 per year to indulge in a month- or year-round privilege on full-priced services, retail products offered, birthday specials, private events and special rewards.
