Rock Spa, Hard Rock Hotel Penang | Review |
Assalamualaikum and Olla everyone!
Today, I would like to write about my experience indulging for a couple spa session at 5 star spa at Rock Spa, Hard Rock Penang. Do stay with me on this blogpost if you love spa session! To be honest, I did not really expect to enjoy the spa session at Hard Rock because I know it is pricey (plus I have my daugther with me, how on earth do we go to spa with a 2 years old?) and dont want to burden my husband with the cost. Since my husband insisted to treat then it wouldnt be so smart of me to decline right? LOL
IF you are travelling with little one like we did, you can still opt for a spa session by sending your kids to Roxity Kids Clud provided at Hard Rock. However, your child need to be above 4 years old and not wearing diapers to be entitled. Our daughter was only 2 years and a half (29 months to be exact) basically that it not an option. Dont despair, we found out Hard Rock provide inhouse baby sitting service that cost RM15 per hour. Jumping high and low!! The minimum hours is 3 hours. The baby sitter will drop by at your room to babysit your child. I found it to be a very good service. However, you need to book 24 hours earlier in order to ensure you get a slot. Since our spa session was abit of an unplanned session. Hard Rock have been kind enough to entertain our last minute request and we are grateful for that.
Meet Sofea and kakak Nurshidah. She is our baby sitter of the day. Sofea was abit shy the first moment we introduced her to kak Nurshidah but before we took off, they seem to bond and it gave my husband and I a sense of relief. Once we came back from our session, sofea have a hard time saying bye to kak Nurshidah. She even insisted to follow Nurshidah back hahaha
Even after her hours ended, Nurshidah is kind enough to bring our little sofea for a night walk around the hotel and even gave her some hard rock goodies!! Thank you very much for going extra mile and being very kind to our child. Appreciate it very much.
This is Rock Spa reception, since we check in on Oct 2016 they are having a promo and we took the Roses Package for 2 pax with include a foot bath, body massage, body scrub and a flower bath. The normal price is RM810 but since it is on promo the cost goes down to RM600 for 2 person. Do check out their website for the monthly deal.
Rock Spa have won many awards and also certified by Ministry of Tourism for 5 star spa. Dont get us wrong, my husband and I are actually very simple people. We are happy enough to lepak at mamak and drink teh tarik or go for a road side foot massage as long as we have each other company. After all, it is not about the luxury or the activities but the time spent together. However, once in awhile it is also nice to reward ourself (in this case reward your pregnant wife LOL) after working very hard to earn every penny.
The massage villa is sooooooooooooooooo beautiful and serene like seriously. I felt like I’ve been transported to another world. Love the whole setting and the ambience very much. Since it an open spaceyou can actually hear the ocean wave while enjoying your session. I also like how they provide the hair clip and find it to be thoughful.
My massage bed, my husband bed was just beside me.
Since I am pregnant, I enjoyed the pregnancy massage. My masseuse name is Kak Vie and she is such a professional at her work. I would recommend for you to book her if you are planning to got to Rock Spa. Managed to talk to her and I cant believe she is a single mother of 3 child. The elder was 20 years old twin!! OMG seriously, when she mentioned she had child I was expecting 3 year old kids but noooooooooooo. Admire her positivity and happy go lucky attitude. It must have been her secret to looking youthful. She also shared few tips for confinement care. Thank you Kak Vie for sharing and it is very nice to get to know you.
I would say it is a very nice massage experience, my husband also love the session that he was sooo relexed he end up dozing off towards the end of the session haha.. He told me that he felt rejuvanated and I actually felt the same. The scrub session was also very calming and I felt squeaky clean right after.
The last session was the flower bath. We get a nice shower to remove the scrub particles from our body before jumping into the bath. We were served with drinks to enjoy during our bath. The water was warm and cosy. The flower bath smell devine like seriously made me feel like ancient queen for awhile. We were left alone to enjoy our private bath session. My husband and I had a good time chatting about our scrub session and reminiscing our relationship. After all the up and down, I am very thankful to call him my husband.
Okay, that is the end of this post. I hope you like it. I also did a video if you want to check out the Rock Spa. I would say it is money well spent expecially if you are on honeymoon.
