When was the last time you spent one full day at the spa?
Wait, let me ask that to myself instead. Hmm, I think it was probably months ago!
Last year, as my birthday treat to myself, I went to Boracay alone to spend one full day at the Mandala Spa and Resort Villa. Well, aside from enjoying the beach of course.
I had one of the villas all to myself. I availed of the Boracay Salt Glow Scrub Package and I was treated like a queen.
Upon entering the resort and confirming my appointment, I was led to the locker rooms and got this complimentary red sarong that I had to wear the entire time while at the resort.
As the entire resort was quite spacious and big, I had to rely on my masseuse to lead me inside to my villa. I also asked for her to lead me to the lobby after the entire treatment.
The whole spa treatment began with a body scrub. Unlike other scrubs I experienced, my masseuse was very gentle with every stroke. I enjoyed all the sensations very much that it made me sleepy. Right after the scrub, I took a shower in the very spacious bathroom and immediately after, I was treated to a hot bath of fresh gumamelas.
I lingered in the bath for awhile while sipping my complimentary avocado shake. It smelled like fresh flowers and vanilla.
Pure bliss and pure pleasure indeed. Followed by a very relaxing 1 and a half hour of massage, I really felt like a queen. After the massage and while my masseuse cleaned up, I was also given a pot of complimentary jasmine tea to enjoy while sleepily admiring their gardens right outside my villa. I really felt like sleeping after, it was that relaxing!
Since I turned off all my data connections the whole time and only had my cellphone for photo purposes, I got almost 5 hours of no unnecessary interruption. It felt super great!
Now, I’m planning for my next spa getaway. Any place to recommend?
