There are definitely many ways to have fun with your barkada . While others choose to travel and go on barkada trips, those who have been used to everyday adventures – being at work and on traffic all week – would just prefer to spend a day or two at a spa for a vacation, or what people now call a “spa-cation”. And where else can you get the best massages, treatments and therapies than in these hotels just within the Metro?
Golden Phoenix Hotel Manila
Golden Phoenix has gone up and beyond in providing all barkadas with a nice spa-cation with their ongoing Sleep-Spa-Cation Promo. Available until 20 Dec 2017, it is made for both male and female guests who want nothing but a physically and mentally rejuvenating foot spa, manicure and pedicure. With nails that not only look great, but also feel great for you, you can jump onto your beds at your suite where you can get a complimentary auto-upgrade. You’ll also get complimentary facial treatments at Vine Aesthetics, a filling buffet breakfast and Dees handmade baked pop corn good for two.

Dusit Thani Manila
When it comes to specialised spa and wellness services, the Bangkok-founded Devarana Spa in Dusit Thani Manila is on top of the list. The term Devarana comes from Thai Sanskrit that means “garden in heaven”. The spa houses a total of six treatment rooms and area for manicure and pedicure. Currently, they are well known even for their Borehilot massage which is a combination of the Filipino Hilot and the Balinese Boreh Remedy. Try their Ultimate Glow Package complete with a 60-minute facial, 60-minute body scrub and a 90-minute massage totalling to a 3-hour session.
