It is a little hard to find the actual place as and maps don't work with the GPS and there are not enough signboards that lead you to this place.

Inside, you will find a 16 feet long swimming pool which is about 3 feet deep. This pool has about 2500 small, special type of fish called Garra rufa. These fish do not have any teeth and suction cells gently from your skin. If you don't make any sudden movements and relax, you can actually feel a gentle vibrating massage of the fish suctioning on your skin. These "doctor fish" as they are popularly called, do an excellent job of cleaning your skin.

The person at the front desk was Saul who was very friendly and helpful. He serves you wine and other beverages from time to time and leaves you alone to enjoy the fish massage.
