Manila's opulent oasis
6 Treatment Rooms
When the busyness of the city gets a little too much, head directly to Crown Spa Manila, located within Crown Towers at the City of Dreams Manila entertainment complex. Here you can rejuvenate, refresh your senses and relax your body.
The spa delivers world-class services accentuated with warm Filipino hospitality. The indulgent treatments were designed by renowned brand Aromatherapy Associates exclusively for Crown Spa, meaning you will not find them elsewhere.
This haven of relaxation features a heated vitality pool, an aromatic steam room, a sauna, a relaxation pool and six private treatment rooms for services that include therapeutic massages, body scrubs, body wraps and various facials.
The two spacious spa suites are nothing less than impressive. They are equipped with private showers, massage tables, a salon chair with a foot tub (in case you want a private haircut and pedicure) and a large bath tub for soaking treatments. The suites are ideal for those who want to max out their hours of relaxation, and/or for guests who want a fun activity with friends or romantic partners — one could easily while away the day in one of these large, beautiful and peaceful spaces.
Crown Spa's star signature massage is the Two-Fold Hilot, which features an ancient Filipino art of healing that uses herbs, a wooden stick and clay. During this unique treatment, two therapists will work on you — one will perform a traditional massage while the other will administer foot therapy.
Other massage options include the Herbal Compress Energizer, a combination of Swedish massage and warm herbal compresses; Intensive Muscle Release, recommended for those who regularly engage in strenuous activities; and Clear Your Mind, which employs a traditional aromatherapy rubdown plus Ayurvedic scalp and face massage.
A small but effective list of body services addresses common problems and includes the Rose Hydrator Body Treatment, which includes an application of rose serum, oil and cream; the Bespoke Skin Polish, an overall exfoliation treatment; Age Repair Hands, which deeply moisturizes digits; and the Rose Hydrating Foot Treatment, which uses botanicals to get feet smooth and moisturized.
The signature facials are customized based on your complexion and skin type. Choose from ones that address aging, hydration and irritation. Travelers may best like the Essential Rose Facial, which uses rose oils to nourish parched skin and leave it healthy looking and glowing. Add the Instant Eye Repair to any facial for brighter eyes — say so long to under-eye puffiness and dark circles.
Of course, if you really want to indulge, opt for one of three luxurious spa packages, a collection of personally designed treatments to suit your needs from head to toe. For instance, men can decompress in a spa suite during the three-hour Simple Men package, which includes a soak, exfoliation, massage and facial. The über-indulgent five-and-a-half-hour Crown Spa Ultimate package includes just about every treatment you will ever want — bath ritual, massage, facial, manicure, pedicure and wash and blowout for your hair.
The Manila spa is part of Crown Towers' health and wellness center, which includes a fully equipped gym with attentive personal trainers. It also includes the lovely outdoor pool where you can lounge away the day before or after your treatment. Tip: Splurge on a private cabana for extra VIP service and amenities.
