This was our experience with our two years old son at one of Sabah tourist attractions. Situated in Ranau (a short distance to the Hot Springs - Poring), it's a great place to stop by for a quick dip to freshen up after a long drive or simply appreciate nature at it's best.
Taken from The Official Sabah Tourism Website: Fancy something more unique than your average spa? Then head on to Kampung Luanti, Ranau for a fish massaging session!
Located in Kampung Luanti, Ranau, 131 kilometers from Kota Kinabalu (2 hours and 40 minutes drive away); this fish massage 'spa' is managed by the Kampung Luanti JKK and lead by Mr. Jeffrin Majangki.
In the Local KadazanDusun dialect, 'tagal' means 'no fishing', and the main purpose of the 'tagal' is to preserve the environment as well as the ecosystem to benefit the future generation. 'Ikan Pelian' or Malaysian Mahseer comes from the family of Cyprinidae. These fishes are specifically trained by the villagers to perform the healing massage activities.
The fish massage is deemed to have a curative effect on those who suffers from psoriasis. Come to Kampung Luanti for regular fish massages and you will enjoy smoother and suppler skin - just like a baby's bottom.
If the idea of fishes nibbling off your dead skin doesn't thrill you, try other activities such as jungle trekking and camping. Should you intend to stay longer, Kampung Luanti is also equipped with a homestay programme to make visitors feel at home every time.
