1| The Retreat Spa


The Retreat Spa in Okada Manila wasn’t nominated for Asia-Pacific Hotel Spa of the Year for nothing. The world-class spa and wellness center is like a mini-resort within a resort. The Retreat Spa takes “holistic” to a whole new level. From the spa pool to the tablet attached to the bottom of the massage tables to the tea happily served in the “lobby” area, the environment only complements the array of massage and skincare options on its spa menu. The Dance of Waves is the spa’s signature massage, but almost everything is worth it at the Retreat Spa. This is definitely a romantic spa experience for a couple, but a solo date definitely wouldn’t hurt.
