Every breath is pure refreshment, a relaxation of the soul, a pure journey of revival. In Malay we call this Sucimurni. In Malaysia it is Tanjong Jara.
The philosophy of Sucimurni emphasizes purity of spirit, health, and well-being. And the award winning Spa Village Tanjong Jara is a sanctuary anchored in this ancient Malay way of life.
Spa Village Tanjong Jara
This beautiful complex of structures, gardens and pools, houses a therapy centre featuring programs for relaxation, reinvigoration and stress relief based on traditional healing methods.
These unique restorative Malay treatments have been handed down from generation to generation, ensuring their authenticity, and therapeutic value. With a history of more than a thousand years, the practices are believed to have their origins in the convergence of Malay, Arab, Indian and Chinese influences during the days of the Malacca Sultanate.
At the Spa Village Tanjong Jara these long held health and beauty traditions are revived for you to enjoy. Treat yourself to this rich history, in which unique natural ingredients found in various indigenous herbs and plants are combined with the skills of our resident Malay healers to provide a very special health and beauty experience.
Once you have completed your treatment at Spa Village Tanjong Jara you will receive a beautiful Batik Sarong, providing you with a memento of your own personal Suci Murni experience.
