To work and live in the metro is really intoxicating. The day to day struggle is just physically and mentally bogging, breaking down your soul and body.
I have this belief that all work and no play makes a person dull and would truly drain the energy out of your life and would slowly kill you in the process. So, it wouldn’t be too much to ask and give yourself a little break and indulge for a relaxing day in a spa once a week to rejuvenate your tired body and soul after an exhaustive week of hard work.
But I must say that I am a little bit choosy in terms of picking a quality spa in the metro as I had that one experience before where instead of getting pampered, I ended up having the worst day of my life because of the poor service from a spa that I just randomly picked in the metro. Never again!
As I care for you my dear readers, I would like to share my personal testimonial in this wellness center that I could really recommend and would give you the best value on your hard earned money. Everyone, please meet the White Palace Spa.
It was a referral from a friend that I took the bite giving White Palace Spa a chance to impress me with their service.
The newly opened spa occupied the whole top floor of the Airport Global Plaza in Parañaque City. It sits fronting the Coastal Mall and the building is next to KFC.
As I entered the wellness center, I was kind of impressed with the reception made aside from the warm and inviting ambient of the facility. In my head runs the line “I hope this impression lasts, because if not, it’s another spa disaster to be added on my list.”
The spa accommodates male and female patrons that provide a separate locker room, massage rooms, sauna, scrub rooms and lounge area. So your privacy is really secured in this facility. But if you wish to be with your loved ones, there are executive rooms that you can reserve for additional fee of course.
I was also informed that patrons could stay here at most 6 hours inclusive of the hours spent for the whole treatment.
I Deserve that Pampering!
I requested for the all in one treatment costing to Php 1200 that includes a foot spa, an hour of body massage and the use of steam bath and dry sauna. Basic spa treatment starts at Php 650.00.
The masseur assigned politely gave me the key to my locker room for me to change and take the hot shower adjacent to the spacious locker room.
Clean towels and bathrobe and shorts were all provided inside the locker. My only concern was there is no shoe rack for the patron’s footwear. It feels a little un hygienic to put both clothes and shoes inside of the same locker. I just couldn’t imagine the odor and the dirt from the shoes mixing with my clothes. I hoping there is another locker for the footwear.
I was on my robe that I was directed to the foot massage room. The foot treatment was really soothing but not as superb as the one that I had experienced from the foot reflexologists and religious followers of Pedro Calungsod in Surigao City. Nevertheless they got all the dead skin removed from my sole and my feet couldn’t be happier with the foot massage experience.
I took a little rest at the lounge area where we had a little chitchat first with my colleagues while watching our favorite singing competition, The Voice Kids Philippines. After seeping a cup of coffee, we headed to the massage room for the main wellness treatment.
The male therapist assigned to me was too polite to ask for the kind of treatment that I wish to have. I told him that I had the worst week of my life and I need the hardest yet soothing pressure on my back to ease my back pain. The relaxing treatment was a combination of Shiatsu, Swedish and Thai massages. There was nothing I can say but AWESOME!
|The executive room|
I was impressed how professionally trained the masseur assigned to me that was evident from the way he had flexed my joints and smoothen the tensioned muscles on my shoulders and my lower back. What’s surprising was they also applied a hot compress, relieving all the tensions on my body.
The treatment was invigorating that I couldn’t ask for more, leaving me rejuvenated and stress-free.
To maximize our stay in the spa, we tried their steam bath. In the 15-minute stay inside the steam bath, I could feel all the free radicals and toxins evaporating away from my skin pores. It was really an awesome experience but all good things must end. Time slipped so fast that we realized it was already 10pm and decided to end our spa treatment.
I ended my day stress-free, happy, relaxed and with a rejuvenated body and soul, ready to rumble and be productive the next day at work.
