4. AG New World Manila Bay Hotel
This hotel’s Club Oasis is a hidden gem in the city. While they don’t offer packaged spa-staycations, they have quite the interesting list of spa offerings for your stay there. One is the Moor Mud Wrap, basically a mask for the body, which is great if you have a lot of body pain because it’s followed by a massage using a eucalyptus-scented coconut oil. They also have the Water Lily wrap, which is a soothing experience for skin that’s sun damaged–literally cool.
Price: Wraps start at P4,200
5. Fairmont Hotel
For those who want a lowkey, no-frills staycation, the Willow Spa at Fairmont offers a package of a 30-minute facial treatment paired with a 60-minute massage for a couple of nights stay.
