Danai Spa Relaxing Treatment at G Hotel Gurney Penang
My first spa experience with Danai was at Dayang Bay Serviced Apartment & Resort, Kuah, Langkawi.
Danai Spa chain runs several outlets throughout Malaysia and their service and massages are reputed to be excellent. I can vouch for this as I have tried the outlet in Dayang Bay twice and recently at G Hotel, Penang.
At our recent staycation at G Kelawai, Mabel and I enjoyed our long weekend indulgences and top it with a spa afternoon. We had a leisurely breakfast, a spot of shopping at the Gurney Plaza with a quick lunch at Dome.
My experience of a relaxing spa treatment Danai Spa Relaxing Treatment at G Hotel Gurney Penang is a luxurious pampering treat for tired muscles and bodies.
If you haven’t tried it, a shared minestrone soup is the way to go before lying face down on a spa bed! Yes, the soup’s hot and the crunchy toast is the right size for dipping.
Spa appointment at 2.30pm on a balmy Monday afternoon is perfect.
From the time we booked our slots, the overall experience at Danai spa G Hotel is excellent. The reception is cozy and we are greeted warmly and served with warm ginger tea.
Jenny and her team are friendly and knowledgeable in recommending just the right treatment for us.
Besides a going for a relaxing time there are other reasons that you may or may not know.

•Improves Rehabilitation after Injury
SCRUBS & AROMATHERAPY OILS
Mabel and I had a fun time selecting our scrubs and aromatherapy oils. The oils have interesting names.
Finally, we made our selection. Mabel chose a Luscious Strawberry Yogurt Scrub and I tried the Moroccan Rose Luxury Body Polish.
The other two which we intend to return and try out are the Farm Fresh Milk & Honey Scrub and Orient Herbal Body Polish.
The pampering starts with a relaxing footbath in warm soapy water. Nice!
ROOM & FACILITIES
Overall the facilities are well maintained. There are several rooms to choose from depending on your treatment menu. We liked our smaller cozier couple’s room.
Some guest may prefer a larger room with a sea view. It all depends on the individual.
Our two massage therapists Anna and Ami are very experienced. Both are so blessed with wonderful cool hands and gave us good massages.
The girls are very polite and professional. Every time they move to a different part of our body, they will check if the pressure is right for us. When everything is perfect, the magic starts and we fall into a beautiful deep sleep.
The masseurs found all the knots in Mabel’s calf and ironed everything out. Mabel who is a dancer found the massage soothing and very relaxing.
Their 90-minutes Signature therapy session helped to heal some of the stubborn knots in my shoulder, neck, and arms as I spend most of my time writing.
Each massage therapists intuitively know where to find the knots by feeling our body. It’s an amazing assessment of how tensed we are individual as we did not tell the massage therapists beforehand.
The massage therapists applied the warmed scrub to our back and fronts. The grainy texture of the scrub was to exfoliate and remove dead skin cells. The blended natural gently cleanse, moisturize and restore the skin to its baby-soft state.
Mabel’s Luscious Strawberry Yogurt Scrub was a bright pink which contains a special recipe of strawberry extract, vitamin E, yogurt and milk proteins. It’s rich in nutrients and renders skin moist and glowing.
My Moroccan Rose Luxury Body Polish is full of the aroma of exquisite Moroccan rose. I found it to be uplifting and soothe my heart as it pampers my body.
After a wrap to let all the goodness of the scrub and nutrient work its magic to beautify our bodies, we drew a nice warm shower.
Yes, our skin felt baby soft, just like a newborn.
We were served with Stash tea with some powerful properties. Mabel chose the Very Berry which has high vitamin and mineral content to boost vision.
I prefer the White Mint Tea with high anti-oxidant energizing properties, and able to lower cholesterol since I like to eat a lot.
It’s memorable, luxury experience and a must-visit-spa while in Penang. As I’ve been to the Danai Spa in Langkawi, I would definitely visit the other spa locations if I happen to be there.
Mabel said she would check out the Danai Spa @ Corus Hotel Kuala Lumpur when she returns home.
A GENTLEMAN’S REVIEW
Danai has the perfect package for men. I was told he enjoyed secretly enjoyed his Gentlemen’s Facial which is part of the GENTLEMEN’S STRESS RELIEF. It’s perfectly fine for men to indulge in a pampering for overworked eyes and skin.
His indulgence started with a Lemongrass Scrub that cleanses the skin with a massage. He was surprised when the treatment ended. 2 hours 45 minutes had passed by so quickly.
He recounted the hours, 90 minutes Aromatherapy Massage, 30 minutes Ginger Salt Glow and 45 minutes Gentlemen’s Facial.
He was glowing and happy at the end of the treatment. Did he say anything? He gave two thumbs up!
