Hot List 2008

Spa Village Malacca, Malacca

Tel: 606-289-8000

Inspired by the healing traditions of the Baba-Nyonya (an ethnic community unique to the Malay Peninsula), treatments here either warm or cool the body. Sessions begin with a welcoming hair wash, while guests are entertained by ceiling-mounted TVs broadcasting a popular 1960s leisure-suited Malay crooner. Try the Egg Rolling Therapy Massage ($126), in which a hard-boiled egg is rubbed into body contours, a practice said to release excess body heat; the Bird's Nest Facial ($63), created from an imperial Chinese recipe; or the Yogurt-Guava Leaves Body Scrub ($63), a combination of two antibacterial agents that exfoliate and cleanse, leaving skin silken. This spa is so expert and innovative that even jaded spa junkies should plan an overnight stay here at the Majestic Malacca and make the two- to three-hour drive from Kuala Lumpur or Singapore (massages, $65–$322).
