Spa days aren’t just a solo self-care ride. You can also share the experience with your significant other. A spa experience is probably the best kind of date you can have with your partner at a time when everyone has a lot of tough things to deal with.
Rub all the stress away and keep things steamy between you and your SO! Below are spa experiences best enjoyed with a special someone this season of love.
I’M Onsen Spa Experience, Makati
Is soaking in an onsen in Japan on your bucket list? You don’t have to wait till Japan’s borders re-open for tourists. Head to I’M Onsen in Makati with luxurious treatment and onsen facilities that can tap into your zen.
You can still get a Filipino touch in this Japanese-style spa with treatment options like Hilot. Availing of a spa treatment already gives you access to the onsen pools, sauna, herbal steam room, and shower. Set your spa date between 4 p.m. and 10 p.m. so you can also enjoy the international buffet that comes with the package.
Nurture Wellness Village Spa Treatment, Tagaytay
Recognized as one of the best spas in the country and in Asia, Nurture Wellness Village is a holistic spa and wellness destination tucked away in the lush quarter of Tagaytay. It offers combination treatments with an emphasis on Filipino techniques for the utmost relaxation. Choose Ginhawa Body Massage or Filipino Hilot with Ventosa for recovery and revitalization. Or, go for Charcoal Body Wrap or Mayumi Coconut Body Polish for the perfect combination of cleansing and skincare.
Luljetta’s Hanging Gardens Spa Day, Antipolo
Another great getaway near Manila is Luljetta’s Hanging Gardens Spa, which only takes an hour on the road. Despite its proximity to the metro, the spa provides you with a nice change of scenery. Couples can do a prenup-esque shoot for the gram with the gorgeous backdrop composed of lush hills, Laguna de Bay, and the Metro Manila skyline.
While away some time in the pool or jacuzzi savoring the ambiance with your partner before having your massage in a Filipino-style cottage. And then, share a bite of Antipolo’s suman, a local delicacy.
Mandala Spa and Resort Villas Spa Experience, Boracay
Boracay is the perfect retreat for couples because now that the number of visitors is being limited, you’ll be sure to appreciate the romantic charm of Boracay with fewer crowds. After all the exciting activities, you can extend your date to a quality spa experience at Mandala Spa and Resort.
The All-Natural Facial and the Muscle Melt are the perfect matches for the lady and the gent. If you’re feeling indulgent, definitely go for the Filipino Heritage Package. More than just a massage, you’ll get a floral footbath and scrub, a ritualistic smudging, coconut and rice scrub, coconut milk bath, and then the spa’s award-winning treatment Hilot Trilogy.
Before you go, take note of these guidelines for traveling to Boracay in the new normal.
Tree Shade Spa Experience, Cebu
If you’re in Cebu and needing some pampering for you and your partner, Tree Shade Spa is the place to be. Located right in the heart of the city, the spa is adored by locals and tourists alike for its remarkable service and expert therapists who are also sincere and attentive. It offers various treatment options, whether you want acupressure, aromatherapy, hot stone, or herbal. The Thai-inspired interiors also complement the provincial vibe of Cebu, letting you fully immerse in your tropical retreat.
Bluewater Maribago Amuma Spa Experience, Cebu
Amuma Spa embodies Filipino hospitality but in an elevated way. Be treated not like a king or queen, no, but rather a lakan and lakambini—like true Filipino royalty. You’ll be pampered in a luxurious contemporary native treatment space with “farm to spa” treatment products for a healthy spa experience.
Amuma Spa is located in Bluewater Maribago Beach Resort on Mactan Island, so you also get the chance to slip into your bikini and trunks and bask in the sun.
