Mandarine Spa

Leo and I "discovered" a nice spa (Mandarine Spa) which was recommended to us by my father-in-law. Being the spa-addicts that we are, we readily tried out the place and was pleasantly surprised. Their foot reflexology service really hits the spot.

When you enter the reception area, they serve you tea with plum. They bring you then to this enclosed area with really comfortable seats. They make you change into a provided pajama sets. After you've changed, you soak your feet into these wooden tubs half-filled with hot (but tolerable--depends on your threshold for pain) water. While your feet happily soak, they give you a back massage (they use their elbows and arms).

Once you've been massaged and your feet are thoroughly soaked, they make you lie back on the comfy seats, put your feet up and give your feet a nice reflexology massage. During this time, I was already asleep (hopefully, not snoring).

The massage lasts for an hour and and 30 minutes (I think) and costs only P480 (tip not included). Not bad considering the service and the ambiance.

Unfortunately, for those in the North, you have to go all the way to Alabang to indulge. Their shop is located at Casa Susana beside Alabang Town Center. Their phone number is 809-6108.

Leo and I have visited them for 2 consecutive weeks already. We'll probably be regulars from now on.
