If you’re tired of the same old spa routine and seeking a different kind of pampering, you might want to give the Kajang Women’s Prison Spa a shot.
This unconventional spa cum saloon offers a range of rejuvenating services that might just surprise you, performed by the female inmates themselves!
Christened ‘Spa Z’, you can indulge in a variety of treatments there including facials, body massages, sinusitis (resdung) therapy, reflexology, scrubs, sauna sessions, and even traditional hot compress massages (tungku), which encompass ancient Malay wisdom and herbs.
The prices are reasonable, ranging from RM35 to RM60 for basic spa services. While these services are exclusive to women, men can drop by for a haircut.
According to netizens on TikTok, the services are actually pretty popular, and the spa slots are usually fully booked. You’ll have to plan ahead and book your appointment in advance to secure your spot.
The spa maintains a strict policy against photography within its premises so you might not be able to access much footage online. But it compensates with additional services such as a salon and even tailor services.
Male prisoners from an adjacent section showcase their culinary skills by crafting delicious treats, including kuih raya during the festive season.
They also sell various food items daily, with their lamb curry puffs flying off the shelves in the morning!
The prison area also boasts a sizeable pool within its premises.
Access is granted through a paid membership or as a guest for a nominal fee, providing an opportunity to unwind further post-spa session. 💆🏻♀️
To book your appointment, simply contact the office at +60 03-87341025 and request to be directed to the spa section for booking.
If Kajang is not convenient for you, don’t worry! The same spa is available at Penjara Pengkalan Chepa and Batu Gajah Prison, though it’s uncertain whether the services and pricing match those mentioned above.
