Morocco in Nuvali, that’s the best way to describe Esencia Day Spa. Located on the 2nd floor of Solenad Mall, this day spa offers full body massages, body scrubs, foot reflexology, ventosa treatments, and more! I just want to say thanks to the beautiful Les Rabinovich (who is a mom of 3, HOW?!?! With that body?!?) for inviting me and my girlfriends Dani and Krissy (and singit si Theo!!!) to try it out last Tuesday.
I was truly impressed by the interiors—you almost feel like you entered some secret door in the middle of the mall. Although it’s situated right in the middle of all the action, once you step in you actually forget you’re in a shopping mall. It’s a relatively small spa but one that would be hard to forget.
The foot reflex and back massage was AMAZING. Since my girls and I were in dire need of a chismis catch up, we opted for this treatment so we could still chit-chat while getting pampered. I would love to head back though to try their full body massages, I saw the treatment rooms and they looked so luxurious! I think I’ll save that for a date with the husband next time. 🙂 🙂 Right, Patrick??? Please date me here!!
Since Solenad Mall has become a pit-stop for Tagaytay and Batangas bound travelers, you may want to consider stopping by this day spa either on the way up or on the way back down to Manila. I suggest you do it on the way back to Manila—at least you’ll be able to end on a high note and face the chaos of the city in a better mood. Hahaha!
In case you are feeling a bit discouraged by the distance, you may want to reconsider. It’s really not as far as it may seem, I live in the Alabang area so I consider Nuvali quite accessible, especially via the newly opened MCX road. I was all set to put my son down for a long nap –but surprise, surprise we made it to Sta. Rosa in 25 minutes! I sort of panicked because I was WAY too early for our appointment! Hahaha! For the South Manila peeps, if you go at a good time (weekday afternoon!) you may find that this mall is actually easier to travel to than visiting Makati! I love, love, love Makati—our office is there, my work is mostly there, but maaaan you can’t beat the fresh air in Nuvali.
Esencia Day Spa is also perfect for intimate celebrations for family/ friends–like a bridal shower, a birthday treat, or even for anniversaries! Hubbies, please take note for future reference! For bookings and inquiries about their special packages, call 0977 8561414.
