It’s official: one of the best spa services I’ve ever tried in my life is the one I had two weeks ago at HUA Spa. Located in the heart of Makati, Hua Spa is a rare find that focuses on two words: royal treatment. After discovering this place in Deal Grocer’s Beauty Category, I was fortunate enough to review the 60-Minute Aroma Wellness Massage, which came with a free 15-Minute Colon Cleansing Massage. Woohoo!

MY EXPERIENCE IN PHOTOS
The moment I arrived at HUA Spa, I was greeted warmly by the branch manager, who offered me complimentary tea while my room was being prepared. Don’t expect ordinary tea at this place—they served me a TWG blend, which came in Hermès teacups! Talk about royal treatment!
This is one decadently designed spa! After a short wait, I was led to my private room. I had this entire luxurious spa room to myself. It even included a spacious ensuite bathroom.
Pampering time! The first part of this treatment was a body scrub. My therapist told me that coffee granules were blended with rose oil to create this scrub. Coffee is known to help reduce appearance of cellulite and firm up the skin. Rose oil, on the other hand, contains loads of vitamins, minerals and antioxidants and is great for moisturizing the skin. Together, these two ingredients created an incredible sensory experience. The smell of the coffee and fragrant rose will put you in total relaxation mode.
After the body scrub, I was instructed to rinse off the residue in the bathroom. Once I did, my clean skin felt absolutely smooth and soft all over!
The next part was the actual massage. The Aroma Wellness Massage focuses on holistic, whole-body wellness, using scents to relax the mind and just enough pressure to soothe the body. This time, my therapist used pure rose oil as she gently kneaded and stretched my muscles. This kind of massage helps increase blood circulation, relieve stress and tension, and calm you down. No surprise, I was left utterly relaxed and refreshed.
But wait, there’s more! As I mentioned earlier, the service I availed of came with a free detox treatment: HUA Spa’s Colon Cleansing Massage. This 15-minute rubdown is designed to rid the body of toxins and relieve tension in the muscles surrounding the colon. Apparently, this leaves you with a healthier digestive system, so why not, right? I didn’t think it was possible for me to feel better than I already did—but that’s exactly what happened.
After I had rested a little more and gotten dressed, I felt totally amazing. I can’t even explain it properly—just that it seemed like all the stress in my body was gone. Busy, burned-out girls, this is the BEST de-stressing experience, period. I highly recommend it!
