I’ll never forget Paradise discotheque in Surabaya: it was that city’s most disreputable nightclub, a haven for itinerate degenerates which, on most nights of the week, was packed to the rafters with insatiable, restless youths seeking some late night thrills and action. Nastier than Jakarta’s Tanamur and without the pretentiousness or glamour, Paradise had no saving graces. What you saw was what you got. If you could see beyond the cigarette smoke that was.
But that was then and this is now. And Paradise is no more. But across to the other end of the Java isle, and in the Big Durian, and there now stands a similarly named establishment called Sparadise.
Located on the fifth floor of the Grand Mercure Hotel in Chinatown, Sparadise is – as if you hadn’t guessed – a spa. Facilities are comprehensive and include a sauna, steam room, hot and cold pools, a lounge – and even wifi. But be that as it may, Sparadise still shares many common values with the long-gone Paradise discotheque in Surabaya. Just come here to find out what they are! Hahaha!
