Review: Soneva Spa

On Monday after dinner with PBNet and Mini Cooper folks I went to Soneva Spa to try out their Hot Stone Massage. 

I usually choose a combination massage whenever I go to a spa but this time it was different, it's an interesting kind of massage and the way I see it in pictures I think there is something that I should try about these stones.

Thanks for a fairy godmother for introducing me to Soneva, a spa in Tomas Morato which is a stairway to heaven. Good for me because I woke up in the morning with a mild pain at the right part of my back.

My massage
My first time to try a stone massage in my whole adventure of exploring different spas along Manila. In Soneva Spa, it's called Hot Stone Massage, and from the word itself the therapist rubs hot stones to one's body.

I met this female therapist who has been working in Soneva since 2006, her name is Nean and she' s in her early 30's. We had this funny rapport before the start of the massage.

Me: Anong name mo ate? 
Therapist: Nean po
Me: Saan ang province mo?
Therapist: Sa Capiz po
Me: OMG! Scary naman :-)
Therapist: Hindi naman po :-)

The Service
Very recommendable. Out of my many experiences in going to spa, it is rare to find a therapist who's expert in giving a total body relief. I am adding Nean of Soneva Spa to my list of recommended therapists. Because she knows to put the right amount of pressure into one's body and she does not need to ask 'Soft or Hard?'

That amount of pressure
The way she puts body pressure is impressive, she does in a very slow manner until it reaches the right amount then that's the time she asks if it is okay or needs to decrease the amount of pressure. Her hands are adaptable, I have body parts that are pasmado but the sweat was gone after she presses the pressure point. She is good in removing a back-pain without telling that feeling to her. She's like a psychic who knows what a patient feels inside.

The Price
Hot Stone Massage 1 hr - 807, 1.5 hr - 967
True that it's pricy for a massage but it's really a quality service. And when your goal is to get rid of your bodypain you've come to the right place.

The Oil
They have different scents, all organic natural oil: Nirvana, Terajana, Hadriyana and Himayana. My therapist used Nirvana.

*I am not sure if you have the option to choose from them or there is none. But guaranteed all are organic.

My Verdict:
Ratings: 4.5/5
Lobby Area: Feel at home and it's like a cafe
CR:  Enough Space
Shower: Functional Hot and Cold

Massage Room: Very comfortable
Bed: The size is right
Linen: very clean and it smells good
Locker: Yes
Towel: medyo luma na but still ok
Robe: soft and smooth
Therapist: very good service

The good thing about their locker is placed beside the bed so you can just leave your things and shoes there and be confident about it's safety.

Hot Towel: None
Dry Sauna: None
Parking: Yes it can accommodate cars but shares with other customers.
Home Service: None
Free Wi-Fi: Yes and its fast
Socket: Yes and secured
Masseur Type: Female only
Signature: Signature Soneva
Extra Service: None

My Overall Experience: Very Satisfied! I shall return to avail the Top 3 recommended massage in Soneva Spa

A Room Service Story

A guy's confession during his vacation in Boracay when he experiences a female therapist and that something happened to them.

'Natry ko narin yung extra service before sa boracay. Wild naman yung girl nun kaya may nangyari sa amin

700 yung masahe then something happened kaya 1500 na ang binigay ko.

Room service yun na massage eh nadala ako. I told u, madali akong madala siguro dahil sa stress ng work.'

Base from a story of an anonymous friend. Itago na lang natin siya sa pangalang Milano.

What makes a good massage

We have asked around a group of those who work on and offline what gives them a good massage.

Massage gives heavenly pleasure when you hear these two keywords from them: relax and refresh.

Here's a list of the first few answers we got from male audience:
  • Yung relaxing, di gaano mabigat.
  • You are refreshed after, because there are some that are painful.
  • I don't know, hindi ako laging nagpapamassage eh.
  • Relaxation, comfort, to relieve stress *tip: if you are looking for a massage I recommend Wensha located at Pasay near Moa (via Ramil)
  • Good massage?hmm, if it relaxes your muscles and soothes most of your body pain
  • The sense of touch
  • If a person is tired and stress out. that's the perfect time to do have a massage

How to deal with backpain

Back pain becomes hell when you can't be absent at work.

Have you ever wondered why do you get back pain at all?

It's hard to work and live right?

Agh, pain comes from work. Hard-work causes back-pain, wrong posture add more of the pain.

In dealing with this kind of pain most people rely on massage, a friend says she will have to see a therapist after work

"Oh my backpain hurts, I need to go Nuat Thai spa"
