“Mandi beramai ramai sambil bersuka ria” means to rejoice while bathing together.  We like that sort of rejoicing.  The popular Mandi Manda sauna offers a wide range of contemporary-styled facilities spread out over 3 floors including a gym, dry sauna, steam room, maze, seated rain baths and relaxation cabins.

The onsite ‘Savva’ café provides the opportunity to take a break from the action to enjoy a drink or meal.

One of the latest additions to the fast-growing KL sauna scene.  A lot of effort and money has gone into the fabulously funky interior design and styling.

First-class facilities include a large ‘walk through’ steam room, dry sauna, a dark room and air-conditioned private relaxation cabins.  A fully-equipped gym has both free weights and cardio machines.

OOPS!’s professionally trained masseurs offer therapeutic and relaxing treatments.

Exclusively male, two-storey gym and sauna, aptly named after the Malay word for ‘muscle’.  Ground floor facilities include a reasonably-sized gym with free weights, cardio machines, along with a yoga and aerobics studio.

OTOT2 has a cyber café with light refreshments.  Facilities on the second floor include a large jacuzzi, steam room, showers, lounge and other areas.  This is a members-only club, but anyone can pay a membership fee and join on their first visit.  Attracts a wide range of ages and both locals and visitors.

Aerobics classes are held on Fridays, Saturdays and Sundays 19:30 pm,  Body Sculpt (weight training timed to music) on Mondays, Thursdays, Saturdays at 19:30 pm, and “Yoga for body and mind”, conducted by a professional instructor on Sundays at 18:00 pm, and Tuesdays at 19:30 pm.

The nearest taxi landmark is the Grand Maria on Jalan Raja Laut.  From there, follow Jalan Ipoh Kecil and turn the last right.  OTOT2 is in the last building at the end of the lane.  Look for OTOT2 letterbox at a staircase next to a karaoke bar.  The Star PWTC LRT station, Chow Kit Monorail and KTM Putra commuter train stations are within walking distance.
