Rainy day indulgence at Danai Spa, G Hotel ♥

2nd floor lounge, G Hotel

What could be more perfect than to wake up to the sound of the pitter-pattering rain on a lazy Sunday morning?

A free 30-min massage from Danai Spa!

Last Sunday I stayed under the warm bed-covers while the surrounding air freezed around me. It hadn't rained in Penang for a long, long while and the dark rainclouds provided a cool respite from the island's heat. Woke up around 10am, felt hungry, made some hot Milo and cooked A1 bakuteh mee with hotdog, mushroom and egg. Watched two episodes of E.U. (学警追击) then fell back into a deep sleep until 3pm. :-D

After that, took a quick shower and rushed to Danai Spa at G Hotel for our 4 o'clock appointment. Danai Spa was so kind to provide us a free 30 min massage in return for a 15 min briefing on their latest promotion - RM6888 package for 3 years. And I could bring a friend! Obvious choice was my sweetie who bought us a couple spa package at Danai Spa Tanjung Bungah a year ago.

Danai Spa lounge

The Danai Spa is located on the 3rd floor of the very trendy G Hotel, beside its very minimalist water feature, infinity pool and gym. Upon arrival, we were immediately ushered to one of the twin-bed massage rooms. Good, we didn't need to wait.

My impression of Danai Spa at G Hotel is that the rooms definately look much cleaner and modern compared to the rustic Balinese-styled Tanjung Bungah branch. I prefer cleaner facilities (except for the bath mat which was wet) but of course the Tj. Bungah branch offers outdoor facilities like the wading pool and outdoor bath which can be quite a fun experience if the weather is not too hot. We peeped into one of the rooms which had five massage beds and a fantastic seaview of the Gurney Drive area! Imagine having your massage on a lazy afternoon while gazing at the sea in front of you... *perfect*.

Twin massage bed

We changed into red batik sarongs and disposable undies and lay on the massage bed, ready for our massage. Well, I can't comment much on the massage part because any massage is wasted on me as I basically don't like people touching me. :-P Leo said he prefers the G Hotel's firmer massage techniques to Tj. Bungah branch. But then again it all really depends on the masseur you get.

After the massage, we were pleasantly surprised as it didn't stop there! We were treated to an additional 30 mins of milk-and-honey body scrub! I reread my previous post and I wrote before that I would like to try that the next time I visited the spa. Seems I got my wish granted! Yum! It smelled of delicious yoghurt and my skin felt instantly smoother and nourished after that. I wanted to buy the scrub but then it wasn't for sale. :-(

And after the scrub, wash it off in the shower room with a transparent glass door.

One of the range of body scrubs.

Verdict? What can I say, 5 stars since it's all free! :-D

Danai Spa is opening a new branch at Eastin Hotel, Queensbay, Penang soon.
