I've visited the Jari Jari spa at the Palace Hotel twice on my visit to KK. Both times I was there for the early bird special which includes tea, a foot soak and an hour long full body massage for 88 ringgit. The rooms are beautiful and the massage (I opted for deep tissue) was incredible. Unfortunately don't remember the... More

Was looking for a decent message after a long trek up Mount Kinabalu. We're walking around the mall and stumbled on Jari Jari and decided to give it a shot. We chose the 45 minute foot message. The staff were very professional and led us into a pleasent room with a larger water feature in the middle of the room.... More

Hello, I'm Carmella, a student from local university in Sabah and currently taking tourism course.

We called to book for our anniversary massage as we had read great reviews. The guy had no idea what my boyfriend was saying and we didn't think it was booked... because it wasn't. We arrived a bit late so didn't think we would be accepted but it turns out the booking never got through anyway. We asked if we... More

Great looking place, nice smell, soothing music, courteous & welcoming people, but was the 90 minutes award winning massage worth RM262? Not quite. It could just be me; try it - splurge!

There are no other customers while I went there. So the place is very quiet and comfortable. I took a course which the staff recommended. It started from foot massage then body massage, took around 2 hours in total. It cost RM290, its fair in my opinion.

Compared to Chinese Traditional Massage, JariJari is much more soft and relaxing. The therapists are very professional. If you are looking for very intensive and strong massage like those in China and Thai, this might not be your choice. But if you are looking for some good quality and relaxing experience, try it here. The price is kind of expensive... More

It's on the 3rd floor (or maybe 4th) of the Suria Sabah mall. Since we stayed at Hotel Grandis (btw, another very good tip if you're staying in Kota Kinabalu), which is literally at the right end of the mall building, we walked a bit in the mall and discovered Jari Jari Spa by chance, but with the great treament,...

Received a Groupon for a 90-minute massage here for my birthday. I didn't really know what to expect, but I left my session feeling totally impressed, as it had exceeded my expectations!
