As the regulatory rating system had been introduced by the Tourism Ministry Malaysia, 30 dubious spa centres have been shut down operation because they are not qualified for the system.
Tourism Minister Malaysia, Datuk Seri Dr Ng Yen Yen said that this is just a self-assessment programme which ministry will start rating and certifying the spa centres all over Malaysia so that they fulfilled the standard requirement.
The officers visited 402 spa centres , however there are 30 spa centres do not meet the requirements and hence they are asked to shut down.
Dr Ng said this move has effectively weeded out the spa centres that offer dubious services.
She also urged the younger generations to consider spa industry as their career choices.
