Guided Tour of the Historic San Sebastian Basilica (Manila)

Discover San Sebastian Basilica, the first and only all-metal building in the Philippines, that sits in a quiet pocket of the historic Quiapo district in Manila. A crossroads of history and innovation, the 126-year-old Basilica was constructed by an international village: Belgian steel, German stained windows, a Spanish engineer, and Filipino art students from the turn of the century Philippines artfully transforming the metal interior into a design that stays true to the Gothic Revival style. The guided tour includes access to the church floor, the choir loft, and the hidden spaces not usually accessible to the public, like the attic and the belfries.<br><br>Explore to Restore! You can help us fund the long-overdue restoration of this historic building by booking a tour with us!

The place is gorgeous. Calming and charming. We stayed in one of their rooms with my sister. The beds were very comfortable, beddings and pillowcases were very soft, pillows were fantastic. The bathroom was so clean and luxurious with all the amenities. The place was so peaceful and relaxing without the hassles of tv, internet and refrigerator. You are surrounded with nature. The food at the restaurant was the best and the service was excellent. All the staffs were great and accommodating with their smiles and gestures. If you want to go to a place away from home and be with nature, this is a place for you.

The massage that I got is one of the best ever! The masseuse are all DOH accredited. They are professionals and friendly. :) Had their buffet lunch but mushrooms are chewy and meh. The pasta sauce white with mango and sun dried tomatoes when combined are good, the salmon belly is meh. They could have done better and added seasonings, the salad bar is ok and desserts as well. The place is ok but I’m not impressed. The redeeming factor is the massage that I got. So if you visit Sonya’s garden make sure you get a massage even if it is foot massage or reflexology you won’t regret it!

If you are staying at the Sonya's Garden B&B, you must get a massage from their Spa. Get the 1.5 hours massage and you will never regret the money you will pay for it. I thought that the spa at the Westin Denarau in Fiji was the best until I had the massage in here. Ahhhmazing.

My colleagues and I has this summary of a word for our massage experience with Sonya's Garden Spa. There was even a wedding when we went there so the mood was very festive yet still relaxed. The spa is situated on the east side of the compound, parking in front and on the left front side of the location when you arrive at the place. Spa sessions should be booked ahead due to a very high influx of customers everyday so it becomes very difficult for walk ins to get a reservation. Foot spa and whole body massages are their best sellers. Their individual spa rooms are equipped with hot and cold shower with shampoo and liquid bath soap to either shower before and/or after the massage to take out the oil from the massage. The translucent window of the shower allows natural light to come through while water is flowing through it which still protects your privacy while you bathe. It also has hangers for your clothes and a locker for your belongings. The masseuse hands you the key upon arriving in the rooms and the batik "balabal"/scarf that will serve as your towel and/or cover up as you approach the massage bed. The massage bed has a head rest even you are facing down. Guess what you are facing down...a bowl of flower petals floating in water. Isn't that super nice? The massage takes an hour or so excluding your shower and a serving of semi hot sweet tea with a dropping of a fresh herb is left on the bed after you shower and wash down the excess oil. Everything feels fantastic, homey, fresh and wonderful in their gardens. A Victorian enclosure is even available for public viewing only though. Gardens and landscapes of vines, flowering shrubs and herbs abound the place giving it a very close-to-nature vibe that relaxes and rejuvenates you. Picture spots are designed with hanging linens equipped with either chairs or at one spot, a bed. After the massage, one of my colleagues and I tried to explore the Garden, took some photos and went inside the bakery store, Apothecary and fresh produce stall. There were breads, pastries, salad dressings, herbs for sale that you can grow at home and/or as more practical souvenirs. There's also a restaurant and a hall for big occasion/s such as weddings.

We stayed in a new area of 3 cottages i was told 4mn walk from main cottages area, spa and restaurant. Our cottage was nice and renovated, my parents s was not at all renovated, oldish, with so many ants in the toilets for 2 days. It is more 10mn walk than 4mn. First night a group of dogs caged not far barked until 1am. Rate for those cottage that are far from restaurant, spa, across the street should be at much lower rate than 7000 for a couple. I would recomend the place but not those cottages.
