One of my favorite styles of massage is Malaysian. Ever since my first Malaysian massage a few years back in Kuala Lumpur, I have always been excited to have another. On my maiden voyage to Penang, Malaysia, I had another opportunity when I visited the Rock Spa located inside of the Hard Rock Hotel, which you can read about here.
The Rock Spa is set back a bit on the property, surrounded by nature near the ocean. They have options for both indoor and outdoor massage. Outdoor means that you will be inside a villa, and indoor means that you will be in an air-conditioned room. I went for the indoor option.
They offer many treatments, but of course, I opted for the traditional Malaysian massage. This style of massage focuses on deep tissue work. Every touch is very sensual, and relaxing. Long strokes, working around the areas of tightness help to insure relaxation. I like that they don’t just focus on the part that hurts, instead, they massage all the areas that are related to that part which gives you longer lasting results.
Indoor, the music was tasteful and the setting was tranquil. My masseuse was a true professional and left me feeling extraordinary!
The massage I had at the Rock Spa at the Hard Rock Hotel in Penang was one of the best I’ve ever had. The treatment, the facilities and the service, were all top notch. It was refreshing to step outdoor to the beach after the massage. Go ahead, treat yourself, and enjoy a treatment at the Rock Spa at the Hard Rock Hotel in Penang, Malaysia!
