KUALA LUMPUR & Vicinity (Klang Valley): Saunas for Men

KUALA LUMPUR -- area code (60-3)

Popular Spots

Saunas and Fitness for Men

      Due to police harassment, saunas in KL are no longer able to carry condoms or display safer sex educational information. Please bring your own safety supplies with you and share them with those you meet. And, most importantly, properly dispose of any used materials to prevent further harassment.


      Venues here are a short walk from the Sentral KL Monorail Station, and the Hilton and Le Meridien hotels.

    • Chakran UTOPIAN VERIFIED JAN 2013
        1/F 22A-B Jln Padang Belia, Brickfields, Utopia Map, 012-345-7178. After exiting the Sentral KL Monorail Station or the Tun Sambathan Monorail Station, look for the YMCA. You will see a 7-Eleven behind the YMCA, on Jln Padang Belia. Walk straight ahead on this road to shop #22. You will see a yellow shop with a huge orange signboard for Chakran (downstairs is a dental clinic). Use the side door to go upstairs. 1/F is reception, massage, body scrub, and showers. 2/F is the steam room, sauna, reading area, TV and resting room, and showers. 3/F has a beautiful rooftop garden with sheltered jacuzzi, plus day beds for resting and reading in a lush garden setting. Friendly staff and management keep up the high quality of this men's social club. Open from 2pm Mon-Thu, from noon Fri-Sun and public holidays. Closing is 11pm nightly.
        2/F 27-2 & 3 Jln Tun Sambanthan 4, Utopia Map, 2260-6018. As you exit the tun Sambantham Monorail Station, turn left and walk down the covered walkway next to the school yard. Keep going forward, across the intersection. and then look for the Sentral Bistro restaurant in the first shophouse on your left. Right next to it is a stairwell with a sign overhead saying Blind TMC Centre. Go up to 2/F to the unmarked glass door entrance of Senses. Here you will find reception, massage rooms and, behind a secure door, lockers. 3/F has a Net area with three PC stations, an aircon dark room, TV lounge, steam room, dry sauna, two shower areas and a popular, dim "rain room" (there's always some humming in the rain here). Be careful of slippery wet floors and also changes in levels in the dark areas which are not clearly lit! Popular and friendly. Clean and well-managed. The friendly crowd is more mature (30s and over) with plenty of uncles and chubs (nice, big towels). Same owners as Sentral.

        "I was here yesterday. Open and even refurbished. It's easily found in the red building opposite hotel Summer View. Go to 2/F to the unmarked glass door entrance." -- Michael, Jan 29, 2014

        1/F 41-1 Jln Thamby Pillai, Brickfields (next to Super Blind massage), Utopia Map, 2260-1018.

Very popular with masculine, mature men, chubs, and their admirers. A friendly mix of races. Skilled blind masseurs on hand. Open daily 11am-11pm.

    • Kakiku UTOPIAN VERIFIED OCT 2014
        2/F 109-2, Jln Cerapu 1 (off Jln Cheras at Sang Kee Restaurant), Utopia Map, 9282-5303, email. From city center, go to "Jln Cheras 3 1/2 Miles" and pass by the tall Menara PGRM building. Stay on Jln Cheras another 100m, past the Petronas petrol station, and turn left onto Jln Cerapu 1 (there's a well-known restaurant, Sang Kee, with a red rocket at this corner). Take the next right turn within the shophouses and Kakiku is in the building on your left. You can see some stylized black footprints on the windows of 2/F. Go up the stairway. Gay-owned and very well-managed men's complex. Very large and clean facilities include steam, dry sauna, jacuzzi, broadband Net, mini-cinema, TV lounge, and café bar. B/F cruise space opens about 7pm. Crowd is local, mixed races, in their 20s-30s. Open Mon-Fri 5pm-midnight; Sat, Sun and public holidays 2pm-midnight.

        "Kakiku has increased their price to R$30 on weekends. They have canceled the foam bath also." -- Kent, Oct 11, 2014

        "Kakiku is one the best saunas in Malaysia - I always recommend it to my friends who would like to explore saunas in KL. Very friendly owner and staff. Most importantly, there are a lot of places for you to hang out. There's a jacuzzi in which can fit up to 8 people, a steam room and a sauna. The maze downstairs wis only opened on weekends after 7pm." -- younggun80, Aug 16, 2014

        "Here's a detailed description of the directions: take the train to Maluri Station (change from Monorail at Hang Tuah), Exit 2 (RHS of train if traveling from monorail side), go to street level, walk along the path until it leaves the station area and turns right to the bus stop. You'll be on the RHS of Jln Cheras. Go past the bus stop and follow Jln Cheras under the big bridge. Turn right (do NOT cross the road yet) and proceed until you emerge on the other side of the big bridge. There is a Petronas fuel station across the road. Cross the road to the fuel station and continue in the same direction, with the fuel station on your left, away from the bridge. Go past a collection of motorbike service shops. Turn left into the small road and follow it as it goes straight and then turns right and then turns left. Kakiku door is on the left. When I was there they had two potted trees at the door. The name is on the wall INSIDE the doorway. Go upstairs and enjoy. Oh, the last train from Maluri returning towards Hang Tuah monorail interchange is around 23:00, so be sure to return to the station before then or be willing to use a taxi. The crowd is a little skittish until they see that you're OK, then they become very interested! Kakiku has a good jacuzzi, lounge and gym. They have a decent dark room and lots of shower and toilet facilities. Later in the evening they have a downstairs area that is a totally dark maze! That is really interesting, but avoid if you become claustraphobic because it can be quite confusing and it might take a while to find your way out again! Hunt for the only light there, it's at the bottom of the stairs leading up and out. Upstairs is the normal towel thing, downstairs is naked. Worth visiting! R$20 on weekdays. Busiest time of the week is obviously weekends, and busiest time of the day is 5-9pm." -- Brian, Jan 18, 2014

      Comments from Utopians:

      "Aniki Fitness Centre is the latest addition to saunas/spas in KL. It is diagonally opposite Cheras Sentral (the old Phoenix Plaza) and located next to a Thai restaurant. The entrance (lobby) on 1/F has a very nice gym with almost full equipment. You need to keep your belongings in the locker. Next to the locker area are shower cubicles (with privacy), a huge steam room and a rather small sauna room. There is a dedicated smoking area with loads of green. To go up to the 2/F you need to take a spiral staircase to find a maze with a few rooms for your privacy. I went on a Sun evening and it was a naked night. You have to remove your towel when you are up there. Crowd mostly youngsters, with a few mature guys. Worth trying!" -- younggun80, Aug 26, 2014

      CHOW KIT

        "52 Forest is the latest addition to the saunas in KL. It's walking distance from Titiwangsa Monorail Station." -- younggun80, Aug 7, 2014

        1/F 7a Jln Ipoh Kecil, Utopia Map, 4044-3369, email. Only a couple blocks away from the Chow Kit Monorail Station, Star PWTC LRT station, and KTM Putra commuter train station. The minor road Jln Ipoh Kecil exists in two separate, but unconnected, parts. One runs SE to NW, but the other, in which OTOT˛ is located, is situated to the south of the first part and runs South to North off the main road Jln Putra. The Sani Hotel (labeled as the Hotel Grand Central on Google Maps as of Aug 2012) is situated on the corner of Jln Putra and Jln Ipoh Kecil, and is the best landmark to aim for whether coming by taxi or on foot from any of the nearby train stations. From the Sani/Grand Hotel Hotel walk north up Jln Ipoh Kecil to the last block of shophouses on your right. You will need a keen eye to spot the name OTOT˛, which is painted on the front of the small letter box situated at the bottom of the stairway just past the karaoke pub. If you hit the stairway to PT Foundation, Malaysia's GLBT AIDS outreach offices (marked with a large pink triangle), then you've gone just a bit too far. Otot-otot means "muscles" in Malay and is also a naughty play on the Malay notion that something else is a muscle, too. First-time visitors have to sign up and become members, for a modest one-time fee. The decor and design is beautiful (it retains a bit of the comfort and charm of the original Babylon in Bangkok). Large gym with modern equipment, aerobics room (yoga and body pump classes are also on offer), coffee area, satellite TV room and lockers are on the reception level. 2/F (which is open to the sky) has seating areas with lots of potted shrubs, a beautiful and private jacuzzi area, showers, a steam room and a large, dark resting area. Open 5pm-midnight weekdays and 1pm-midnight weekends and holidays. All ages and races make this a truly international men's facility.

        Comments from Utopians:

        "Went to OTOT˛ on Fri night. Very packed and a lots of action. Crowd is mostly local (Malay, Indian, Chinese). 9pm they had a free coffee/tea break while the staff cleaned the place for 10-15 minutes." -- Rio S., Aug 10, 2014


    • Mandi Manda UTOPIAN VERIFIED JAN 2014
        31 Jln 109E, Desa Business Park, Taman Desa, Utopia Map, 012-916 6899. Turn into Taman Desa and immediately you will see a bomba (fire station). Turn left immediately after the bomba. Look for two panel glass doors with long wooden handles (pull to open, not push) in the center of the 2nd block of shophouses. No sign. To ensure privacy the owners have chosen a quiet corner overlooking garden greenery in Taman Desa. "Mandi beramai ramai sambil bersuka ria" means bathing together while enjoying pleasures -- aptly describing this world-class men's spa. Three levels of sleek modern spaces are run by friendly staff and populated by men who share the same passions and tastes in life. Well-maintained facilities include security-monitored lockers, dry sauna, huge steam room maze, rain showers, dry and wet toilets, TV/Net lounge, private cabins that lead to a maze and group activity room, and café. New in 2013: a new maze and TV area.


    • Steamer's Sauna UTOPIAN VERIFIED AUG 2014
        E2-02 (2/F ), Jln SS 6/20A, Dataran Glomac, Kelana Jaya, 016-221-9378, email. gay-owned. we are a new gay sauna meet up place located in kelana jaya. Utopia Member Discount

        Comments from Utopians:

        "Streamers, behind Giant Hypermarket, is exactly like a community spa. If you want to have privacy here, forget about it as there are no proper rooms available. There's a small little sauna box (not room!) and steam room. There are naked nights on Tue, Thu and Sun with more crowd. If you don't mind the cozy environment, do give it a try." -- younggun80, Aug 26, 2014

        "Steamer's Sauna owner previously owned the Steamworks in Taman Megah. Now they have moved to Kelana Jaya. Only a sauna, they don't offer any massage here. I hear that they open from 4-930pm. Thu and Sun are naked days - everyone is given only a small face towel and entrance fee is R$23. Other days are R$18. Not really a big space. Facilities are steam room, sauna box, TV room that show gay videos, two dark cubicles, resting area, open shower space, two toilets and a small gym. Guests are mostly Chinese, with some Malay and very few Indians. Mixed ages. This sauna can't compare with those famous ones in KL, but still a nice place to chill out as the place is still new and clean. And it's the only gay sauna in the PJ area. Those around PJ don't need to travel far to KL as now there is one sauna here for cruising." -- gold_exp, Apr 19, 2014
