The Overview

Offering a wide range of Filipino massage techniques in traditional surrounds, visitors are recommended to start their experience with a Jacuzzi or hot tub before heading on to experience any number of treatments or therapies. While the spa offers Swedish and aromatherapy massages, its speciality is "hilot" - a Filipino technique that combines oil massage, joint manipulation and acupressure. Whether or not the therapy can be traced back to the archipelago nation's hilltribes, as often claimed, it is a thoroughly enjoyable and rejuvenating experience. Hilot is not dissimilar to shiatsu, and it is equally capable of working out deep-rooted knots and tensions.
