Spa Experience: Danai Spa, G Hotel Penang

I'm finally done with assignments for this month!! *phew* Was contemplating going back to the quaint little massage place mentioned earlier (i knowwww, i'm so behind reviews its not funny anymore!! Sorry!!!), but when my colleague forwarded me this sweet deal for Danai Spa, i can't help but to snap up a few vouchers for myself! :D

Side rant: whats with the groupon thingies mushrooming like mad on the net! it's making me spend like crazy!!! >.< lol!

I went for the aromatherapy massage with 2 other friends. Though the deal we got is only for 30 minutes, we were given the option of extending the massage to an hour for an extra RM30 (plus tax), which we opted for. Throughout the phone booking process, the receptionist was polite and friendly! :)

The reception area although small, is spacious enough to seat up to 10 people at a go! :)

We were served a warm ginger tea which i kinda like, but my friends found the heat from the ginger a little too much though! lol! :D

After filling up some forms, we were ushered into our respective rooms. The single room was a little small for my liking, but its cozy! :) There's a massage bed, bath and shower in each room for patrons to enjoy in their own privacy.

No pictures after this for obvious reasons, but the folded cloth you see on the bed is actually a sarong for you to cover yourself during the massage. I like how the masseuse is mindful of my modesty and is constantly asking if i'm comfortable or not. Technique wise the massage is a combination of deep, long strokes (Swedish) and the (not so pleasant for me) finger pulling Thai technique. No complaints about that - i felt totally relaxed and the knots in my shoulders smoothened out after the massage.

I have 2 gripes though. We were not provided disposable undies despite this being an oil massage. It's not very pleasant to walk around after that with oily knickers! >.< The other thing (probably my biggest gripe) is that the masseuse did not wash or sanitize her hands before touching my head! I can understand if we were given a foot bath prior to the massage, but that wasn't the case, so it's quite icky imho!

All in all i think it's a great deal at RM50+ for an hour's massage, but to be totally honest I don't think i would have paid the full price (RM150 for 90 mins) for it.
