Last week we ran the first part of our review of the Colonial styled Danna Hotel in Langkawi, detailing the excellent accommodation on offer, this week we will let you know about the superb spa facilities.
Having taken a few minutes to unpack, freshen up and take it all in, and with the still fresh memories of our invigorating shoulder massage upon arrival we headed off to the Spa. Set away from the pool and the rest of the hotel facilities, The Danna Spa is on the top floor of the building providing the undisturbed peace and tranquility and ensuring breathtaking views across the sea and the nearby marina.
The range of treatments is impressive. Anything from Hot Stone Massage to foot reflexology with a wide selection of mouth-watering scrubs with coconut, marine mud and coffee, health-boosting body wraps with tropical fruits, yogurt and chocolate, and aromatherapy facials, just to name a few. Choose from the a la carte treatments or indulge in one of The Danna’s special Spa Rituals – a few-hour long combinations of treatments to fully detoxify, relax and rejuvenate your whole body. Anxious to start exploring the rest of the hotel facilities and to dive into the beckoning pool we decided to try the Spa’s signature Traditional Malay Urut massage. The promised deep pressure massage really delivered as slender-looking Novi and Mai, who performed the treatment, turned out to have really high-skilled and powerful hands. Before the session began Paul and I were asked to choose one of the special selection of custom-made blended oils to enhance the benefits of the treatments and to provide the heavenly aroma.
Having changed into beautiful comfy robes and had our feet soaked in a fragranced foot-spa bath and scrubbed with aromatic salts while we enjoyed the spectacular views over the marina from the treatment-room windows, we took to our side-by-side massage tables and the rest was pure bliss. The Spa is an important part of your overall Danna experience. Wonderful treatments, attentive and experienced therapists and serene atmosphere ensure complete relaxation and rejuvenation of senses. And should you require other means of minimizing stress along with burning some calories, there is a well equipped Fitness Center adjacent to the Spa, which might come in handy after your introduction to The Danna’s culinary delights.
