Garabuning Spa is a jungle/garden-theme spa located in Hatyai city. You should be able to find the spa easily by using Google Map. If you take tuk-tuk, save and show the map below to your driver. It should cost you less than 50 THB per person from anywhere in town.
You should call or drop-in ahead to book a session as this spa is popular among tourists and locals. We went a day earlier, picked a package and paid only 1000 THB deposit. You can choose a package here from their website.
Note: Price is different for Thais and tourists. If you go in big group, you can refer to the rates for local in advance and negotiate some discount.
Ning, the owner was very nice and friendly. She was willing to give us some discount and threw in the fish spa for free and she even went out of her way to get balloons as gifts when she found out that it was F's birthday.

Our spa treatment started with a consultation with Ning. We selected our preferred scrubs and aromatherapy massage oils before going to the fish spa. We arrived earlier than expected so we spent more than 15 minutes there. After feeding the little fish our dead skin, we were escorted to the treatment suites and changed for scrub.
I LOVE how soft my skin felt. I chose charcoal scrub and rosemary massage oil. It wasn't an easy choice because I liked a couple of other options like the green tea scrub and the Garabuning oil as well.

Finally, we had facials. Which was just okay to me because the masseur/beautician did not wear mask and I could just *feel* her. She also chatted a bit with the other staff and that spoilt the mood just a little.
After treatment, we changed our clothes and was served some fruits before Ning drove us back to hotel.
Overall 5 <3<3<3<3<3 of 5
I highly recommend Garabuning Spa if you're looking for something more fancy than the many massage parlours in Hatyai. The affordable rate just made it even more sweet!
