Sometimes we decide it is a time for a romantic getaway for both of us. This time we treat ourselves with a great staying in the E&O Hotel, Penang. When we were staying there we pampered ourselves and went for a treatment at their Panpuri Spa. The spa is located on the sixth floor of a new wing, which will enchant you with light and its old-style fishbone floors. Enjoy our Panpuri Spa Review.
The relaxed feeling starts even before you reach the spa entrance. For that, I blame the greenery on the outside of the hallway window. What a fantastic hall that is!
The Panpuri Spa at Eastern & Oriental Hotel is a super nice place. Darker furniture with pastel fabric wallpapers and candle lights lighting will put you in a relaxation mode before you will be on the massage table. On the other hand, the massage room is bright in a combination of pastel creme and dark brown. Facilities are perfect as well as other amenities. Nice shower and big locker for your stuff.
They even offered us a nice jewelry box for a deposit. Overall, this place is nicely decorated. In a word, I like all the details they have here, especially a feather of a peacock!
Before the Massage
At the entrance, we were kindly greeted and in a blink of an eye we were sipping the chamomile tea and cooling down with heavenly scented cold towels. The fragrance of the lemongrass and orange was perfect after the long journey we took in the morning. Actually, it’s perfect for any occasion if you ask me. It’s uplifting, relaxing and balancing at the same time.
Before the treatment began they made sure that we would enjoy our massage. In order to do so, we had to answer a few simple questions. Like what areas you would like to treat the most or about some physical problems. I was happy about that because it guarantees that you can peacefully enjoy the relaxing massage.
Here you can also choose which massage would you like. The fact that we had the pleasure of smelling all the oils and listen to the benefits of each, also shows how important the individuality of every guest is to them. After that, we were taken to the room where our treatment took place.
We were headed for the Mali Moonlight Soothing Massage. That is their most popular one and it combines Traditional Thai Massage, Aromatherapy, Reiki, and Acupressure techniques. For maximum comfort, we changed into the light cotton ropes and started the detox feet bath. She put the limes and kaffir lime leaves in the water for a quick detox.
The salt piling rub she did was a guarantee for more soft and lighter skin. While our feet were soaking the therapists turned on the warming blanket. The blanket was another aspect of their thoughtfulness that I was grateful for. Because I’m more of a frozen type I get easily cold. However, that didn’t happen on their table.
At the table, I found another great feature – a bowl of floating flowers on the floor. At first, I stared at the flowers and then just went to the meditative state. That was easy under the incredibly soft hands of the therapist. The quality of organic products reaches far beyond the aroma of the essential oil. The immediate effect has the aroma that sends you in paradise instantly.
Ian is a Hard Rock
It was less tranquil for Ian, as his therapists had some extra work with few muscle knots. A heavy backpack is no joke, my friends. Well, she really tried hard to release those knots and was cautiously asking if he was in pain. I think this was payback for laughing at me for mine Valentine’s massage when I was in pain. But he was way better off with this one. I sure enjoyed it much more.
Our massage lasted for an hour and I must admit, this was one pleasant massage! I loved the atmosphere there, and the massage was intense just right. Not deeper directly to the muscle but strong enough to release the stiffness. The therapists were very skillful, and she knew exactly which parts needed more attention. After the massage, we were both like newborns. Even if the session was over, it wasn’t just thank you and goodbye.
After the Massage
Before we said our goodbyes, we got accompanied to the relaxation room where Moroccan mint tea and dried fruit were waiting for us. There we had all the time we needed to come back to reality while looking at some interesting magazines. The relaxation room provides a nice feeling.

The whole experience is intriguing and when you know that you and nature are better off the experience is even sweeter. Their respect for nature is what won me over. Using eco-friendly natural ingredients is the best you can do for your body. I got myself some of their organic products and I am more than satisfied with them. The smell is amazing and the skin is so smooth after using it. I recommend warmly to all ladies who love to care for the skin in a natural way.
