I’ve been wanting to visit a legit spa and get a full body massage.
So last night I was browsing online, and I found a discounted rate at Metrodeal for Island Spa- 1 hour massage for only 499 php.
Since it’s been a while when I’ve last visited a spa, I decided to try it out.
Located at Jupiter street Makati (near Jazz mall), Island spa is a place to unwind and de-stress, where you can have privacy.
They offer you your own private room whenever you avail their massage service.
You may also get a room for you and your partner to enjoy a massage together.
Here are some pictures of the ladies’ bathroom and changing room.
It is better to arrive around 1 hour before your scheduled appointment, so that you can use the shower and steam room without any rushing.
I was only able to shower, and I decided to have some ginger tea before my Swedish massage.
One thing that was missing inside the room was the aromatherapy.
Usually inside spas, I would smell essential oils such as lavender or peppermint. Here, there is only relaxing music inside the room.
When the therapist started her massage I felt like I made the right choice. She had her techniques, and she checked with me for the pressure.
At times it was a little too hard/strong, so I would request for her to have a lighter massage pressure and she would adjust accordingly.
What I didn’t like was that the room was not noise-proof.
The Bali room was just beside the tea area, so I could hear the chit-chat of the staff, and even the ding from the microwave after each heating.
If not for the good massage I would have walked outside to request all of them to keep quiet! 🙂
Here is their pricelist as of Oct. 2018
Over-all I would rate this spa a 3/5.
Decent enough for your de-stressing needs, but not as great as The Spa.
Maybe I will come back to try their foot massage and be blown away.

I still love The Spa, but don’t mind going back here if it’s on discount 🙂
