Manila: Well-being and Spa
A bustling city with a laid-back, casual nature
Manila can be a terrific place for a spa holiday and most of the nicer hotels have spas and in-room massage and beauty treatments. Metro Manila is also home to innumerable urban retreat health spas, where all budgets and tastes are catered to. 1-1.5 hour massages start at only €2 or €3. Sound unbelievable? For something different, try a “Fish Spa” at Manila’s new Oceana Park where “Doctor Fish” nibble away at the soles of your feet! For a bargain wellness spa not far from Manila, visit the Sanctuary Spa at Maya Maya in Batangas on the South China Sea, which features air-conditioned traditional Filipino Cottages and a variety of wellness treatments starting at about 8€.
