ASEAN’s 50th anniversary just got even more festive with Mastercard’s Priceless® Cities program, which comes with an exciting choice of promotions across Southeast Asia. If you’re planning to spoil that special someone with a romantic, spa-fueled getaway, look to Pangkor Laut Resort – a member of Small Luxury Hotels of the World – in the Malaysian state of Perak, where Mastercard cardholders can receive a complimentary room upgrade and late checkout (based on availability) by reserving a two-night escape in a garden villa. Also included is a scheduled jungle walk through the island’s virgin rain forest with the resident naturalist, along with an indulgent, three-hour couples’ spa experience. Taking its inspiration from Malay wedding culture, the session involves special body treatments for both him and her in Pangkor Laut’s flagship Spa Village. The resort has emerged as a wellness destination in its own right, thanks in part to the wide range of therapies drawn from the Ayurvedic, Chinese, and Malay traditions.
