The Edge (Options), June 12, 2006

The ultimate beauty retreat opens in KL

Picture this: 50,000 sq ft dedicated to pure unadulterated pampering in the heart of KL city. The Pamper Zone at Starhill Gallery, officially opened end of last month with fanfare, claims the title of world's largest urban retreat.

Host and YTL Corporation managing director, Tan Sri Dr Francis Yeoh, said, "We were encouraged by the success of our world-acclaimed spas in Pangkor Laut and Tanjong Jara. Beauty and wellness is no small business - women in the UK spent ?10 billion on toiletries last year and in Thailand the luxury spa business raked in US$285. 7 million. And placing this sort of spa facility in a retail centre is also proven theory, as the Harrods Urban Retreat has been to Harrods. Therefore the saying that beauty is skin deep is but a skin deep saying."

The Pamper Zone is the latest in Yeoh's Starhill Gallery pursuits. The new zone will complete the myriad experiences offered at Starhill, which includes Feast Village and Adorn - the world's biggest watch floor - making Starhill a holistic retail institution housing avenues for fashion, art, food, living and now, beauty.

Since the refurbishment of the exterior a couple of years back, designed by New York-based architect David Rockwell, Starhill Gallery has aimed to give consumers a shopping experience unlike any other. And since its reopening last year, the response has been overwhelming amongst locals and tourists alike. Today, it houses several flagship and concept stores, including Asprey and Vertu, which have taken shopping to newer heights.


   
Tiara and Yeoh share a light moment

At the launch, Yeoh said in his opening speech, "It is a one-of-a-kind facility, dedicated to the woman who mows how to take care of herself, who looks at beauty not just from the outside but from the inside, and who deserves to feel special and loves to be treated. It celebrates all that is beautiful about a woman, from the roots of her hair to the tips of her toes, from her made-up face to her healthy glowing skin."

The official launch of Pamper Zone incorporated a cocktail party and a preview of the space for 200 guests. Purple and white curtains adorned the walls, and candles lent a warm glow, enhancing the Egyptian inspired decor. A string quartet provided ambient music whilst the men and women explored the boutiques and spas (including 93 treatment rooms) in the Pamper Zone.

"Pamper Zone has created the ultimate escape in the midst of our busy, lively city," Yeoh added.

Also present were Anita Sarawak, the face of spas in YTL Hotels & Properties, and the newly-appointed Pamper Zone ambassador, Datin Seri Tiara Jacquelina.
