    • Chakran UTOPIAN VERIFIED APR 2016
        1/F 22A-B Jln Padang Belia, Brickfields, Utopia Map

        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.

        "I'm satisfied in Chakran. There are many Indians, which I like." -- Saske (Philippines), Apr 11, 2016

        "Paid R$20. Staircase to the garden is dangerous. Crowd is extremely thin even on Sat. Facilities are so old." -- Joe, Dec 27, 2015

        2/F 27-2 & 3 Jln Tun Sambanthan 4, Utopia Map

        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 and bears (30s and over) with plenty of uncles and chubs (nice, big towels). Same owners as Sentral. Crowded daily until 11pm.

        "Sentral sauna is now no longer like its olden days. They've started charging GST (RM$21.20). The facilities are so old. The venue now has shrunk...very small space. The crowd has really thinned, too." -- Joe Mar 12, 2016


        G/F 40-6A Jln Sultan Ismail (next to Apple Boutique Hotel, diagonally opposite Blue Boy disco), Bukit Bintang, Utopia Map

        Facing the Grand Millenium Hotel, go down the alley on the left side of the hotel. In front of you, you will see a row of shophouses and Day Thermos' signboard visible just to the right. This men's facility, right in the heart of the tourist area, has it all. Fantastic security and great decor (even the toilets are beautifully detailed). 1/F has lockers large enough to store your backpack; a beautiful TV lounge, bar and garden atrium. 2/F has rain showers, both public and private; steam maze and dry sauna, small gym and dark room with maze. Crowd is all ages and races. Very foreign-friendly due to the great location. Crowded 5-8pm.

        "Day Thermos is small, but very clean. I went three times during my one week stay and had a great time with the locals, both Chinese and Malay. The receptionist was friendly. The action takes place in the steam room and can be continued in the private rooms upstairs." -- Bruno, May 15, 2016

        "This place is very foreigner friendly. Had a great time there with many of the locals!" -- Lochie, Apr 12, 2016

    • Kakiku UTOPIAN VERIFIED MAR 2016
        2/F 109-2, Jln Cerapu 1 (off Jln Cheras at Sang Kee Restaurant), Utopia Map
        9282-5303, email

        From city center, take a taxi 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. By train, go 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. Cross the road to the Petronas 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 and onto Jln Cerapu 1, then follow the directions above. 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 nude cruise space opens about 7pm. Crowd is local, mostly Chinese, in their 20s-30s. Open Mon-Fri 5pm-midnight; Sat, Sun and public holidays 2pm-midnight. 'Special Function' nights are now held in the basement and on weekends, that area is a hive of activities. Busiest times are weekends, 5-9pm.
        Utopia Member Benefit: R$5 DISCOUNT for sauna from Mon-Fri. R$5 DISCOUNT for non-promotional massage package plus FREE USE OF THE SAUNA FACILITIES (Mon-Fri) upon presentation of member card and ID.

        Comments from Utopians:

        "Very clean place with sauna and jacuzzi. Basement was exciting, but the crowd was all waiting for something to happen. Come on guys. Live up your fantasies. Most visitors were Chinese and Malay around 20s-40s." -- Guy, Mar 12, 2016

      CHOW KIT

        1/F 7a Jln Ipoh Kecil, Utopia Map

        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. Businest after dark.

    • Mandi Manda UTOPIAN VERIFIED MAY 2015
        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 has moved since May 2016 and changed its name to Sweaters. It is very similar to the old Steamers with naked nights as before." -- JWTS, May 29. 2016
