Marine Fish Spa Batu Feringghi Penang Reviews
Gotta try once for curiosity sake Feb 26, 2012
Marine Fish Spa is located at Jalan Batu Feringghi near D'Feringghi Hotel. It is the yellow colour single story building - u cant miss it. There are actually plenty of fish spa places around.
We walked past this place a couple of times not knowing what is it. So we thought we gave it a try on our last day before heading back. This place also offers full body massage.
The mistake we made was to come after sun tanning the whole afternoon. So we were pretty much too "sandy" for the massage.
We tried out the fish spa followed by the full body massage.
Essentially, you just soak your feet into the pool which is filled with small fishes. The small fishes are supposed to eat off the dead skin off your feet. There is a lot of research proving against this form of treatment for fear of infection and viruses. But hey we were on a holiday so we were prepared to just try almost anything out of curiosity lol!
I pretty much wasted 10 minutes of "the treatment" giggling and avoiding contact with the fish! There was 1 particularly big (as compared to the rest) fish which kept coming to my feet)
The company was run by a Chinese family. Service was good and friendly.
