About Jari Jari Spa
Touch of Borneo
The unique and deeply satisfying experience found at the authentic Jari Jari Spa begins with our underlying philosophy – we believe in sharing our cultural tradition that has been passed down through generations, by offering relaxing and rejuvenating therapies that are distinctively from the Borneo regions.
The treatment procedures at Jari Jari Spa are drawn from the rich cultural heritage of the ‘Dusuns’, the largest group of indigenous people in North Borneo. Our homeland native, the Dusun, are well-known for their massage – ‘Dusun Lotud Inan’, ‘Palad’ (Palm of Hand) and ‘Tanggara’ (The Mountain massage). The fact that massage has been recognized as a part of the cultural lifestyle dates back as far as historical records go and is an indication of its legitimacy in our modern lives.
Set in a quiet and convenient location in Kota Kinabalu, the capital of Sabah, Malaysian Borneo, the authentic Jari Jari Spa, offers a discreet environment with five private suites, two of them designed specifically to accommodate treatments for coupled groups.
Jari Jari Spa is tastefully decorated using Borneo hardwood, sandstone and wild jungle plants. The smell of local lemongrass, lavender and palm leaf transports you to the tropical paradise you’ve always dreamed of.
Come and experience the ambiance at Jari Jari Borneo Spa and let our traditional Borneo herbs and massage oils pamper your body. Find yourself waking up feeling refreshed and reinvigorated, knowing that you have been pampered with a true Borneo experience. And trust us, you’ll only leave with a desire to come back for more.
