      Hi Hasrul, your blog is great. I stay in Seria and misses the spa in Bandar terribly since i moved here. Today, i finally tried the Ladies NurBerjaya Spa in KB town. They also have a men spa above the ladies spa. I tried the 1 hr full body massage for $25. It was okay. The masseuse was skilled, the pressure was good, hit all the right spot.. The ambience was ‘okay’ish, typical spa music. My masseuse did stopped twice to answer the phone. Rating: 7/10

        Hello Sara :) Thanks for leaving a comment and what a delight! A mini review! I appreciate your review, I would definitely check the Berjaya Spa when I go to KB. Although I kind of have a pet peeve on therapists who abruptly interrupts a massage sequence so that she could answer the phone! Its very annoying!

        Hey Saiful, Thann is hands down the best spa in terms of the decor and the treatments in Brunei. Although the prices are on the steep side! Hope you enjoy the treatment!

    Shiatzen Spa: Living Radiance promotion Body Scrub & Mask with Massage $65 (120 min)

    February 2008 – Kiulap

    Restore your skin’s natural balance and radiance with a body scrub to exfoliate and smooth the skin, followed by a firming body mask and an hour’s massage. Emerge radiant, glowing and totally relaxed.”

    Absolute Indulgence. That was the word to describe the Living Radiance spa package offered by the ever legendary Shiatzen Spa. After several weeks of contemplating on whether I should try out my first spa body scrub experience and having to compare the scrub treatments offered by different spas – it was not difficult to finally choose Shiatzen Spa.

    After a series of exceptional massages that have exceeded my expectations every time, I know I could rely on the spa to make me feel relaxed and revitalised at the end of the treatment. Obviously having to splurge that amount of money, definitely at the end of the day getting your money’s worth on what you have paid for.

    I have never had a body scrub and mask spa treatment before, as most of my visits to the spa are mainly for the body massage or the foot reflexology. For two hours of ultimate indulgence, the experience was just bliss. I was given a choice of scrubs to choose from, sea salt scrub, tropical scrub, Javanese Lulur with an array of exotic spices, Japanese green tea infusion scrub were the ones I can remember. I finally chose the Javanese Lulur due to its detox and skin-brightening properties.

    The scrub treatment took about 30 minutes where the spa therapist spread the variety spices over my skin. The exotic aroma from the Lulur and the mixed ingredients blends and shedding away the dull skin revealing a healthy skin glow underneath. The therapist really do work the scrub on my back leaving my skin soft like a baby.

    Just like the scrub, there were plenty of body masks to choose from: Italian White Mud Masque, Tropical Mango and Avacado, Green Tea and Camphor. I chose the tropical mango and avocado body mask for its skin brightening and replenishing properties. The body mask treatment after the scrub treatment definitely fitting, the skin will continue to absorb the nutrients and vitamins during the course of the body masque treatment. This is definitely a serious attempt towards healthy and glowing skin.

    Next, the Swedish and Shiatsu combination massage. Well, what can I say, I was deeply relaxed and it was exactly what I have described in my previous review. Consistency is what sets Shiatzen Spa apart from the others. Shiatzen Spa still remains one of the top spas here in Brunei – with its pricing and exceptional spa experience.

    Verdict – 9/10

    Reservation is a must. Call in 8980628 for more details.

    Shiatzen Spa: Swedish & Shiatsu Combination Massage $30


    That song in your mind that evokes a certain memory and brings ‘that’ feeling of youth and carefree life. How so unrestricted and the spontaneity – oh how you working men are always seeking for that. Shiatzen Spa bears no resemblance to my youth but no matter how many spas I have visited Shiatzen Spa has always invoke that feeling and is a special place in my brain – that desires the spa experience and the indulgence. God I love that feeling. No matter how many times, I’ve booked for the Swedish & Shiatsu Combination massage, Shiatzen Spa has always got it right for me. Although one thing ruins that spontaneity and its down to this – you must always always make a reservation. They don’t like people who drop in, it is unlikely you will get to do the treatment on the spot.

    Like for example, one day you were in serious need of a indulgence and deep relaxation which you could get from a good massage therapist, and you decided to quickly head over to Shiatzen Spa in Kiulap but found yourself turned down since the two only therapists are not available. 3 things you can do:

    1 – Suck yourself up and go back home disappointed

    2 – Go to the Zen Spa, and end up regretting in the end (see Zen Spa: Touch of Zen review)

    3 – Head over to HSBC ATM, to get extra cash for the pricey treatments at Thann Sanctuary Spa and be happy. Although you have to ask yourself, have I paid extra $25 when I could achieve the same results in Shiatzen Spa?

    So Shiatzen Spa is exclusive and a bit harder to access. Its all part of the allure, that makes people come back.

    The combination massage of Swedish and Shiatsu, and the emphasis on soothing the stress muscles on the back – makes my back feel so light and my posture corrected. Its really that good. The relaxing long, continuous strokes of the Swedish massage and the focus of Shiatsu on the neck and head was enough to evoke a state of Zen. A lull of nothingness and deep pleasure bombarding and firing inside your head. The music – playing chantings of Buddhist monks and the sound of heavy rain and the rainforest – hypnotises you into a state of deep meditation if I can say myself. Shiatzen Spa always gets it right, even though I have checked myself for 5 times. The ending of the massage was the only bad part because I don’t want it to stop.

    After the massage, the therapist brewed honey and ginger tea for me – the warmth pulsating when I sip it was out of this world. I guess, for that moment in time, it was a getaway from your monotonous and hectic life and be able to forget all about it and just enjoy the pleasurable experience.

    Verdict – 11/10

    60 minutes of Swedish and Shiatsu Combination massage costs $30. For maximum effect try the 90 minutes massage/$45. Reservation is a must. Call in 8980628 for more details.
