I was blessed to have a chance to enjoy this amazing place. It was definitely that I was looking for and needed when I scheduled a mid week trip. When I was booking the trip, I was not expecting a serene, stress free place. The person who took my call was very helpful. I was using the healthway gift check and I was half expecting that since the trip is free, they might not give me the whole "experience". Boy, was I wrong!. I brought with me my mom, my 7 month old baby and her yaya. The staff are so nice and warm - they accommodated our request and carried all our stuff (walker, stroller and bags) with eagerness. They make us feel that they have been expecting us and that it is their pleasure to serve us.
The place is so quiet. They welcomed us with Basil tea - really refreshing and relaxing. And then they made us fill out a form to determine the massage suitable for us.
The room is looks clean and inviting. The rooms are personalized and you would know that the person who prepared the room paid detailed attention to the cleanliness and presentation. It was alright. The room, although it is not as big as I was hoping, was enough to entertain my daughter. The water is clean and just right on the temperature. My lovely daughter played on it for almost an hour. :)
We decided to have our dinner there as there is a 3km drive to the main road and I am beginning to feel the excitement for the massage. We had the kakaibang lumpia, kalderata and adobong lamb and they taste good. The serving is per person and I do think the prices of some of their food is quite reasonable. I would not order the champorado and ginataang halo halo crepe again though.
Then the massage - the massage that my whole body is waiting for. The massage I got is comparable to the massage from the spa but not as good as what I have experienced at the Chi spa in Kota Kinabalu. But I believe they just referred to the details I've written on the form. I felt good after the massage and soon enough got me drifted off to sleep.
The next morning, we had our breakfast and it is good. After having our rest, the therapist whisked us kindly to the garden area so that they can give our facial massage. The facial cleansing massage is wonderful. Imagine this - "no outside sound, almost complete silence with just the singing of the birds filling the air, slight breeze smelling lavender, and the soft, gentle hands of the therapist massaging your face using natural honey and royal jelly" It is truly a perfect way to end this adventure.
My baby enjoyed the trip, my mom is still smiling and my yaya felt blessed to be part of this adventure.
We will definitely come back.
drink lots of the alkaline water that they serve - it is good for cleansing. :)
