Be prepared for a Penang Spa pampering because Penangites have a passion for all things Spa, Health and Beauty. The mid range to high end hotels are big players in the Penang Spa industry with some offering very generous spa packages.
The Jerejak Rainforest Resort is an interesting Penang Spa as this is an island just off the Bayan Lepas coastline and you need to take a short ferry ride from the jetty in the Queensbay area.
The Danai Spa at the Eastin Hotel offers some very popular Spa packages with the Hawaiian Pampering Bliss being the epitome of indulgent luxury on their wide and varied spa menu.
The Wisdom Of Ayurveda is another Danai Spa speciality that consists of a combination of three ayurvedic treatments that is sure to ease away the stresses and strains of your hectic work schedule.
This is followed by a traditional massage before culminating in being dabbed with a hot pouch containing seven traditional herbs along your bodies meridian lines; Sheer bliss!
The epitome of Penang Spa can be enjoyed at the Shangri-La Rasa Sayang Resort and Spa whose Chi Spa is one of the most luxurious on the island of Penang.
Another resort facing the famous Batu Ferringhi beach in northern Penang is the Bayview Beach Resort Penang hotel.
There is an independent Spa in Georgetown that has quite a good reputation and it is called Deluxcious.
Then there are the Fish Spa therapy salons where you dip your feet into a tank of water and the Garra Rufa Fish swarm around your tired tootsies munching on all your dead skin.
These fish actually have no teeth and if you are of a ticklish disposition your feet may be jumping in and out of the water like a yo-yo. It is really a rather refreshing feeling.
While on the subject of feet there are many masseuses who specialise in kneading the soles of your feet to stimulate circulation and promote relaxation, these can be found in many of the shopping malls, beach areas and tourist hotspots of Penang.
If you need your hair or nails given some tender loving care then no problem as Penang hosts a multitude of these salons spread all over the island in both shoplots and shopping malls.
