If you have a couple of hours to spend in Penang and in need of some pampering, call and book a slot with Teratak Spa, Bayan Baru. The spa is only about 15-minute drive from Penang International Airport. You'd be able to find the direction to Teratak Spa in Waze or Google Map.
I've been there twice. The first time was good and the second time was even more relaxing.
As I entered the traditional Malay gate, I walked on 'floating' stone over a pond filled with fish and tortoises.
A staff welcomed me and asked me to sound the gong. Then, I was given a foot wash (siram kaki) like the Malays in olden days used to do before entering a house.
During my first visit, the staff gave me a tour and showed me all the treatment rooms in the spa. They have 3 gorgeous treatment rooms but unfortunately, no couple room. Also, if you want a male masseur, you'll have to tell them in advance.
They served me their special welcome drink while I chose a treatment and they processed the payment. I think the drink was tamarind.
The first time, I tried a treatment which was on promo.
* Ginger Drink
* Foot Ritual
* Body Polish
* Kaffir Lime Scalp Treatment

Then, I tried the Puteri Santubong 3-hour treatment during my second visit.
* Traditional Holistic Massage
*Kaffir Lime Scalp Massage
* Body Scrub
* Herbal Bath
