Now that interdistrict travel is allowed again, you’ll want to make the Sofitel Damansara one of your staycay spots. We tell you why.

The second MCO we went through recently was rough. With everywhere being red zones, cases reaching up to 5k, and never-ending extensions, it truly felt like there was no end in sight to the lockdown. Thankfully, now that things have eased a little, now is the time to celebrate all those little goals you achieved while being stuck at home. Had an anniversary? Reached your work KPI? Has your kid been behaving lately? Commemorate all those small wins by pampering yourself and your family to a day or more at Sofitel Damansara.

Where is it?

If you’re looking for some me-time away from the family (and that’s completely okay!), make a stop at the So SPA, which takes relaxation to a different level. Featuring a warm, modern, and minimalist design concept, this is the place you need to be to truly unwind. Must-try: a 120-minute long treatment called So Hammam Rituals, which’s inspired by one of the oldest cleansing traditions in the world, the Hammam ritual.

Please note that the So SPA is closed until further notice so do make a call before you plan your treatment.
