Pangkor Laut Resort
This high-luxe, over-water spa, designed by noted spa developer Sylvia Sepielli, opened in 2002 to much acclaim. Although the concept was to preserve Malaysia’s three-tiered (ayurveda, Chinese medicine, Malay) healing culture, it was only recently that Sepielli added the latter: genuine Malay healing. Specialty Choose your healing track then meet one-on-one with a healing master who assesses your current health status and handpicks the appropriate authentic treatment modality ranging from body-smoking and cupping (Chinese) to ginger-lemongrass-camphor body wraps (Malay). Rates From $475 per night.
