1. Devarana Spa
Nothing is more indulging than a trip to Devarana, a luxury spa located at Dusit Thani Manila in Makati. This exclusive establishment is famous for its ‘garden in heaven’ motif, making it an ideal place for those who want a piece of paradise.
It has six treatment rooms and a separate area for those interested in a manicure or pedicure. Each room is painted in soothing colors and enhanced by shaded natural light for a calm atmosphere. In addition, they have expert therapists who are well-trained in giving you the best massage experience.
2. The Spa
Tired of the super hectic city life? No problem because you can get away from it all by retreating to The Spa!
This establishment has seven branches all over Manila. The best thing about it is that it goes beyond the usual massage or mani-pedi. Their services target the whole body. Literally.
Customers are offered services for the scalp, face, feet and body. They also give aromatherapy, classic massages like Swedish and Shiatsu, as well as reflexology and Lymphatic detox. Packages for singles and couples are available at The Spa.
3. Mandarine Spa
If you’re looking for a good old Chinese-style foot reflexology, Mandarine Spa wins hands down. You can find this establishment at Westgate Center, Commerce Avenue, Filinvest Corporate City, Alabang, or Muntinlupa! Customers come and go every time cause they seek the expert reflexologists to help their body relax.
Though some may describe the whole pressure-point massage satisfying and at the same time painful, many are still coming back for more! It’s like a bitter-sweet feeling to the body.
Aside from reflexology, they also offer Shiatsu and Swedish massages. They also serve goji berry tea to add to that Chinese vibe.
4. Neo Spa
In the heart of Bonifacio Global City lies a Zen sanctuary. This Japanese-inspired spa believes in the traditions of the Kamakura era which aims to achieve holistic healing by promoting harmony and balance in a person’s mind, body and soul.
Customers love their specialty Hanakusumi or Cherry Blossom Mist Nourishing Ritual. Starting with a dry bush, they will scrub your lymph nodes which thus exfoliates your skin to improve blood circulation.
Next, your body will be scrubbed using cherry blossom rice powder to calm and enhance your skin. It’s followed by a relaxing foot massage, and then finally, a whole-body massage using a special detoxifying oil. What more can you ask for?
5. Mandara Spa
It feels good to be pampered once in a while especially after a tiring week at work. Instead of hitting the bars for cocktails, why not head to Mandara for the ultimate “me time”?
Customers at The Mandara Rituals are offered treatments for the body, hand, foot and face. You can find this state-of-the-art establishment in Bonifacio Global City!
In addition, this is also the place for those who want to experience the traditional “hilot” with an expert master healer who would knead, stretch and unknot your tired muscles. You’ll be leaving, feeling lighter, healthier and more relaxed than even before.
6. Island Spa
If you want to get away from it all, head to Island Spa. It’s one of the most refreshing and relaxing havens in the city where you can experience the best reflexology treatments.
Kiss stress away as their trained reflexologists gently press key points on the soles of your feet to give you the most satisfying spa treatment ever. Their therapists are trained by Chinese trainers so you’re assured of quality service anytime.
Drop them a visit at Jupiter Makati, 136-138 Jupiter Place Bldg., Jupiter Street, Bel-Air Makati City or at Resorts World Manila, Unit 1. 5/F Newport Mall, 100 Andrews Ave. Pasay City. You won’t regret your visit at “the oasis in the midst of the city”.
7. Aramesh Spa and Wellness
Now you don’t have to leave the country just to experience the famous Persian massage. All you have to do is treat yourself to Aramesh Spa and Wellness at Unit 601, 6th Floor Heart Tower 108 Valero Street, Salcedo Village, Makati City.
The overall look and feel of this place alone transports you to Persia, a place known for its rich culture and traditional Persian massage. It’s a form of deep tissue massage commonly practiced in Iran as a form of relaxing and healing treatment. Their therapists underwent rigid training under the supervision of experts so you know you’re always in good hands.
It’s important to treat yourself occasionally to a good old spa treatment. Massages and a little skin, scalp and nails pampering are excellent for your mind, soul and body.
