Here’s a list of the best spas that I’ve ever been to in the Philippines; get a massage by the ocean with a perfect view of pristine white sand! Get a honey scrub, or a facial mask made out of ingredients and tested mixtures handed down from generation to generation of Philippine indigenous tribes!
In today’s modern world, fast-paced lifestyles are requiring us to put more effort into seriously taking care of our health to keep from burning out. It’s really essential to unwind and treat yourself to a relaxing evening/afternoon or even an entire weekend at the spa.
Massages improve your blood circulation, thus impacting the rest of your circulatory system, letting yourself mind relax for a few hours improves your mental faculties and fortifying skin treatments leave you with a radiant and well-rested appearance.
The Philippines offers endless choices for spas to relax, unwind, pamper and even heal yourself through various massage techniques, scrubs and other treatments using mineralswith healing properties. Also, if you have the time and budget, a spa treatment by the beach overlooking the ocean and powdery-white sand is most ideal.
Here is a list of the 10 best spas that I’ve been to so far:
1. The Spa, Makati
Considered as one of the most popular spas in Makati, The Spa gives you a sense of serenity the moment you walk into its lobby, with its whitewashed walkway flanked with Greek pillars and flowing water on the sides.
The staff at the front desk and inside the treatment rooms are very professional; trained to deal with clients from the A and B markets, as well as foreigners. The moment you enter the waiting are inside the treatment room you are served the most relaxing cup of ginger tea ever brewed.
The rooms are impressive, with just the right lighting and temperature to make you feel comfortable and relaxed. Their shower rooms are marvelous too, with rainfall shower heads and smooth stones surrounding the marble flooring. The place will truly give you a very Zen experience.
The Spa offers facial treatments, massages, body scrubs, foot care treatments and paraffin services. They also offer spa packages that combine a body scrub of your choice with a 1-hour massage.
