My partner and I both had the malay massage package (2hrs) plus a body scrub (30mins) and it was lovely experience. I found my masseuse (Eric's assistant) to be wonderfully thorough and attentive, and my partner also thought Eric was great. We took the arranged taxi which cost 60RM each way (from the Westin, in Kuah town), and in hindsight... More

Eric has magic fingers, hands, elbows (and whatever else he used), which will leave you extremely calm and relaxed. This is not the the fluffy 'foo foo faa faa' spa experience. It can be quite painful when he hits the right spot, but the overall feeling after is just amazing. I had a traditional Malay massage and facial but Rumah... More

I've been to Langkawi four times now (yes, I'm rather fond of the place ;) and I'm absolutely kicking myself that I didn't find Eric sooner. Not only does he offer the best massage experience, in the loveliest location on the whole island, he gave me the two best massages I've EVER had. And, I've had countless over the course... More

I had a traditional Malay massage and a body scrub with Eric while on holiday. I have had various massages in different places but can definitely say that this was the best. All the way through I had a real sense that Eric cared about my body and about what he was doing. It was so far from the one... More

We stayed with Eric, who as well as being an excellent host and cook, is first and foremost a very accomplished masseur. We are travelling throughout South East Asia and have had many massages in different countries. Eric's was by far the best and most technical. His spa is a wonderful retreat. I would highly recommend staying a while to... More

Eric is such a fantastic guy! His retreat is so relaxing and away from the bustle of the main tourist areas. I went there twice while in Langkawi and can't recommend it more highly. I have been to other high-end places but the massage was no where near as good! I had a 2 hour massage and Reiki the first... More

My partner and I had an amazing Christmas day treatment! Eric was wonderful he sent a car to pick us up and the driver was fantastic so even before we got there it was great. The jungle setting was unlike any spa experience I have ever experienced. Eric showed us around the place, it was so peaceful and relaxing and... More

I took my girfriend here as a birthday treat on our trip through Malaysia. It was a great decision! I'm not always a huge "massage person", but the whole package was so interesting and pleasant, that I only have good things to say about it. Eric was lovely and made us feel at home right from the start. We had... More

As soon as you meet Eric you realise such an amazing time you will have ahead of you. Pure 90 mins tranquil massage, yet opening the tight knots I had for such a long long time and hearing the rain pouring hard outside.... couldn't be any better. Later on, Eric showed us around his house. Such a wonderful and relaxing... More
