Here’s part two of our Peacock Garden getaway, this time I’d like to focus on their spa. The Fontana Aurelia deserves a post of its own! Most of their treatments (if not all) feature the luxurious Pevonia Botanica brand so you can guarantee that all their scrubs, massages, and wraps are safe and effective even for the most delicate skin. The Spa is possibly the crowning glory of this hotel and rightfully so, it’s inspired by the spas back in the olden days taking you back to the time when spa-ing was truly a luxury.
When you put Sheila, Stella and me together—-you just know we will have an impromptu kengkoy photo shoot!!! But we had to tone it down a bit, the Fontana Aurelia Spa was too classy to go all out goofy!! Hahaha!:) Here I am paying homage to the Peacock by doing my sexy feather poses–and Stella trying her best to control her laughter! Ayan naaaaaaa…tatawa na siya! Mwahahaha!
And of course, we had to shoot the girl behind the lens too. I shot this photo of Sheila, bravo to me!!!!
Dyosa wannabes, hahahaha 🙂
We did not have just one—but 5 treatments in one afternoon!!! YESSSSS! We went over the top! SPA TO THE MAX. I felt like a big blob of jello after! At one point during the massage I was just in complete amazement of how the strokes were so fluid and almost infinite. I was telling myself, “Grabe this masahista must be a Hindu goddess!!!It’s almost like she has multiple arms! How does she manage to do those strokes??” and so I took a peek—and I was shocked to see that there were two massage therapists working on my back! HAHAHAHA! Kaya pala!!!:) It was so relaxing I’m sure I was snoring throughout the session. The poor masahista had to shake me and wake me from my deep sleep. Hahaha! Here’s a rundown of the treatments we had.
Peacock Paradise Massage
Peacock Garden’s signature, decadent tandem massage performed by two therapists mirroring each other’s movements, bringing you to a state of peace and relaxation.
Pevonia Silky Skin Body Scrub

Again, we would like to send our deepest thanks to the Pevonia Botanica and Peacock Garden families for this ultimate spa indulgence. It’s almost like we won the LOTTO!!!
And….as an ADDED treat, we had these special boxes filled with Pevonia products sitting pretty on each of our beds when we checked in!!! Thanks to the mastermind Jenny Casitas for this pleasant surprise. She lovingly prepared each one based on our skin types! Sheila got products to treat her dry facial skin, Stella got a kaboodle of items for combination skin, while I was greeted by a family of Pevonia’s luxurious moisturizers for my hand and bodeeeeehhhhh!!!
