Hello Beautiful

My name is Tammy and I've been blogging for over 8 years now. I started blogging because I wanted to share my beauty hauls and lifestyle experiences. I'm also a pro-consumer, which is probably the fire in my life.

This blog is now happily written by the cutest couple you've ever seen. Gareth's Irish while I'm Malaysian. We met in the most unexpected way possible and since then have been in a loving relationship. He loves to eat, drink and try new exciting things (even extreme sports) while I love the quieter things in life, like spas, massages, shopping and beauty! But we have something in common, we both love travelling.

A Day at Phillip Wain, StarHill: Women's Haven

10.04.2012

let me take you a tour around Phillip Wain today

Remember I said I would be going to Phillip Wain, StarHill for a review? I did and today you're going to see awesome pics of the place as the kitty here went undercover to uncover what lies in a fitness health center made just for the female species. This means...

No Men Allowed - Period.

Thanks to an invitation to try their signature spa treatment called the "Aromatic Infusion Hydrobath". It's a bath which takes place in a private room where a hydrobath tub is prepared with essential oil. Sounds lovely? I couldn't wait to try it :)



But first let me show you my undercover pictures of the women only sanctuary, Phillip Wain, one of the Asia's largest ladies only fitness and beauty club (16,000 square feet center!). Be warn I'm going to show quite a number of photographs to show you why Phillip Wain deserves to be an all round fitness health center, equipped with not only fitness facilities but with beauty treatment facilities as well (e.g beauty, massage, slimming, spas). 

when you first walk in

a spacious & cozy health juice bar


sports & skincare boutique available

State-of-art gymnasium equipments to exercise in peace
(without needing to worry about men)

Over 50 dance & exercises classes weekly

grab your set of towel, robe, slippers & locker key


at the changing room where I continue to spy

feast your eyes in the huge women's locker area

General & Private lockers

you can have a quick change in these rooms


yes there's sauna & steam rooms

peeping into the sauna room (resting bed chairs outside)

Shower facilities & amenities provided


clean bathrooms

resting area between treatments

sipping my ginger tea before my session

I'l be heading this way to the treatment rooms

Did my "spy" pics make you want to come to Phillip Wain too? heh wait till you hear about my  Aromatic Infusion Hydrobath which is 1hour 30minutes! I found out that it's the only treatment that takes that long here. First you probably ask why the fancy name? I think the name speaks for itself. Here's why!

Relaxing & Calming
Improves blood circulation
Increases metabolism
Moisturizes the skin
Increases skin’s suppleness
Smoother and more velvety skin

For this special hydrobath, relaxing essential oil is poured into the bath while the jets running by an assistant. The smell of the essential oil creates an aromatic presence around the room, couple with dim lights and quiet serenity makes for the perfect relaxation. The bath takes about 20mins and the jets will be turned off for cool down. An assistant is readily available in the private room and she would advise you stay in the tub to cool down instead of hastily getting up. This is for health reasons, you don't want to faint or have sudden temperate change that would affect your blood pressure.

Aromatherapy oil scented massage & spa rooms

my bath reminds me of the "Thermae"
(bath houses with servants waiting on you)

You won't feel her presence there from the start unless you're not used to having a stranger while you're bathing. She's will not peep at you, but will be near the door (still inside the room). The assistant will help you dry off and offer you a cup of tea at the lounging area.

Lavender Oil Aroma Massage

After having to enjoy the cup of tea, I was lead to a massage room where I would continue with the Aroma Massage for 60mins. Lavender massage oil was used (like it was not enough relaxing already! hoo boy pure bliss). The massage had a combination of Swedish strokes with firm pressure to release the stiffness on my back and shoulders. There's nothing more I could ask for as I dozed off.

showered, changed & ready for my yummy meal
(nasi tomato with ayam merah cooked with olive oil)

The best part about my experience? Is that I get to bring a reader with me to experience Phillip Wain together (so you know I ain't pulling a quickie here). Introducing miss Fatin a reader I met while queuing up in the wee morning at Estée Lauder's Staff Sale back in 2009. Fatin didn't try the Aromatic Infusion Hydrobath, but something better! (better than me cries). She got to try the Stem Cell Facial.

They say an apple a day keeps the doctor away, 
but can an apple a day keep the aging signs away?

The Stemcell Facial is the breakthrough in natural approach to a younger looking you. Paired up with customized massage techniques to enhance penetration for a youthful and radiant look. Fatin was beaming radiant when she came out of the women's changing room to join me for a yummy meal of "nasi tomato with ayam merah". It came with a barley soup, ice-lemon tea and fruits. We never felt more pampered.

stem cell facial, I would love to try it too!
(after seeing how happy Fatin is)

I interviewed Fatin for her experience
(so you guys know I'm not joking about this whole episode!)

I asked how much is their membership? (who wouldn't after seeing this place). According to Phillip Wain, the charges differ from the type of packages a person sign up according to their needs. There's Annual Exercise Memberships, Facial Treatment Packages, Massage and Pampering Packages, Slimming Treatment Packages & Fitness and Pilates Packages. Professional and personalized consultation sessions, Physical Assessment and Body Fat Analysis and Professional Nutritional advices are given to members.
5 Reasons Why I would sign up Phillip Wain
1. If I work in Bukit Bintang, I can pop over to exercise to avoid jam.
2. No Men allowed. Enough said.
3. Established facility, clean and high class.
4. All in one center, where I can exercise, do beauty treatments, slimming or massage.
5. Food is awesome at the Health Juice Bar!
