Located just down the road from Jusco Bukit Indah shopping centre, Soul Asia is a great massage place that boasts beautiful and luxurious decorations and clean, comfortable massage beds for you and your pals.

On top of that, it’s reasonably priced too – RM50 for a 1-hour Thai massage and RM95 for a 2 hour one. In SGD terms, it would be around $20 for a 1-hour session.

So popular that reservations are actually a need, Spa Manja is a cheap, customer-friendly massage place that’s been touted as the top dog of JB. Decent prices, availability of group therapies, efficient management, and calming treatments are what Spa Manja is capable of, and I’m not even finished.

The staff is friendly, and the massages themselves are gentle and relaxing to the touch. All in all, do give Spa Manja a try when you’re in sore need of a great massage and are not impressed by the other JB massage places!
