Overwhelming ‘spa’ choices, within a small community always make me apprehensive, because they can’t possibly all be ‘good’. I usual prefer to cut to
the chase by taking word-of-mouth recommendations from a good source. So
far my ‘sources’ have not led me astray. But when I’m on the road? It’s hit or miss. Ah, to walk in my ‘beauty’ seeking sandles.
As a self appointed information go-to gal (with too much time on her hands) I’ve received emails asking about various services in Langkawi. So when asked about waxing availability, I had to check with my sources, because that’s new turf for me. But! Teratai Reflexology was recommended as THE place to go for waxing, manicures and pedicures. (period). It wasn’t until recently that I actually checked it out personally.
What no one mentioned before was the excellent massage and reflexology services offered at Teratai as well. After a short stint in Singapore I became a huge fan of reflexology and appreciate the ‘real deal’, so any chance I get to get this fabulous ‘massage’ I will. I hate to sound sexist, but I’ve not gotten very lucky with female masseuses. Maybe they think they are going to ‘hurt’ my delicate self, but at Teratai those ‘girls’ are excellent!
Meaning they have not only the strength but the knowledge to back up their techniques. The pre-reflexology treatment foot bath consists of individual ceramic jacuzzis lined with smooth river rocks. It’s like sitting with your feet in the water at the edge of a brook, actually. An immediate sense of peace and the feeling of being pampered. The interior of Teratai is also very relaxing, with the subdued lighting, soft music and tropical Asian décor. A perfect place to pop in for a sense of calm .
And the pedicures? Comfortable semi reclined chairs with fluffy pillows make this often timely treatment a pampering treat. And lots of magazines! I almost felt like I was at a slumber party with my girlfriends. The staff at Teratai Reflexology are friendly, genuine and very professional. Customer service qualities I always appreciate, especially when I’m ‘on the road’.
