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.

        011-1143-2969, WhatsApp +601111432969

        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.

        Comments from Utopians:

        "Recently refurbished and cleaned up. Now very pleasant. Showers, hot sauna, two rooms for resting, TV room, but... the best part is upstairs (caution: the spiral staircase is very steep and slippery!). Walk through the roof garden. At the end is a half-screened space, semi-private, but not a dark room so it's very clear what everyone is doing. Don't be shy. Someone will soon join you, or join someone who's already having fun. I had a great time!" -- Frank, May 2019

        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 Jamz karaoke and Hotel Double M in the first shophouse on your left. In between them is the stairway up to Senses with a sign overhead saying "Central Lodge, Traveller Guest House". Go up to 2/F to the unmarked glass door. There 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). Busiest Sat and Sun. Same owners as Sentral. Crowded daily until 11pm.

        Comments from Utopians:

        "I enjoyed my visit to Senses sauna. Went there around 4pm Sun afternoon. It may not be everyone's taste, as there are a lot of mature men aged 60+. But, there were also a minority of younger/middle-aged hunks/bears. The rain room is rather fun, as is the steam room. Too bad if you want privacy, as there are no private cabins. Showers really not that great and too many smokers around, blatantly ignoring the non smoking sign as is common in Malaysia." -- Chun Lee, Oct 1, 2018

    • Day Thermos UTOPIA VISITED JUN 2017
        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 with Day Thermos' large sign. This small men's cruising facility is right in the heart of the tourist area. 1/F has lockers large enough to store your backpack; a 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. Crowd is mainly foregners. Busy 5-8pm.

        2/F 109-2, Jln Cerapu 1 (off Jln Cheras at Sang Kee Restaurant), Utopia Map
        9282-5303, email

        Leave MRT Maluri Station Exit D and walk 3 minutes towards an elevated highway on the right. When you reach the elevated highway, look ahead and you will see Hotel Mezzo. Walk a few more minute towards the hotel. Beside the hotel is the road where the sauna is located. Or, 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. 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.

        Comments from Utopians:

        "It is a little bit of a walk from the station, and one intersection is rather hairy, but do-able. Use the Utopia Map and instructions so you know you are heading the right way. The sauna itself is rather dated, and I wouldn't say well designed (for fun). I agree it is a mainly a youngish Chinese crowd. The basement area is just way too dark. The jacuzzi is nice though. It was not very busy on a Sat evening which was rather disappointing. Nevertheless, I had fun there. The private cabins are the size of change rooms in clothing shops, and no mattress to lay down on. Best if you like your fun standing up." -- Chun Lee, Oct 1, 2018

        "Now that you can go to Kakiku sauna easily by MRT (subway train) from Sentral and Bukit Bintung, I gave it a try on a Sat. Got there at 5pm and there were a handful of guys. After 6pm, more and more guys came in. It was then very busy, mainly Chinese. I had a good time with an elder guy from Afganistan, and a few Chinese. Tip: bring your own safety supplies." -- Uan, Aug 5, 2018

      CHOW KIT

        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. 5pm-midnight weekdays and 3pm-midnight weekends and holidays. All ages and races make this a truly international men's facility. Businest after dark.

        Comments from Utopians:

        "Now opens at 3pm on Sat/Sun." -- Jeh, Feb 1, 2019

        "Out of the three saunas I visited in KL, this is most diverse in terms of race, with significant numbers of Malay and Indians in addition to Chinese. I would say mainly under age 35. Large space, and looks nice. No private cabins (you apparently go to the oversized toilets if needed)." -- Chun Lee, Oct 1, 2018


        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.
