A staycation outside the metro


I am totally in love in a place outside my town which showcases a really lovely spa and hanging gardens.  Inspired by the legendary hanging gardens of ancient Babylon, you can go for a refreshing dip at the heated jacuzzi and hydro-massage pool or bask at the breath-taking mountain-top vista of the metropolitan skyline while soaking in the infinity pool.  The spa’s also has body scrubs which uses coffee, calamansi, chocolate, and red wine. A unique service is their version of the ventosa which uses ginger to produce the heat. A fish spa, a sauna, and ancillary services such as pedicure, manicure, and paraffin wax adds value to their offerings. Visitors can also stroll lazily in the 8-hectare property and commune with natural and man-made landscape which exudes the spirit. This garden which prides itself of being a center for holistic healing is a proponent of a complete approach in treating people with all sorts of ailments and health issues. The result of years of research and global travel by its owner particularly India and Tibet, where she studied how monks and holy men achieve balance and enlightenment.
