The Retreat Spa at Okada Manila: A Tranquil Holistic and Spiritual Spa Experience in the Metro
Self-care is often seen as a luxury that one’s busy schedule cannot afford, however, taking the time to pamper oneself is an important factor for productivity and stress management. Seeing this need for self-care, The Retreat Spa at Okada Manila offers a full-service wellness center with a truly holistic, “almost spiritual” spa experience.
The Retreat Spa at Okada Manila opened its doors in September 2018.
It is necessary to let the body, heart, and soul break free from stress and anxiety every once in a while, and this hybrid spa proves to be a great retreat for people seeking a quick escape from the hectic city.

The 2,500-sqm main spa houses various facilities that will make you feel as if you’re entering a paradise amidst the bustling Metro.
You won’t feel the pressure of time as you can relax and enjoy the facilities before and/or after your treatment at your own pace with no time limit.
The Retreat Spa Pool
Greatly inspired by Eastern cultures, The Retreat Spa uses treatments tailored to suit your well-being, starting with a personalized consultation to determine the most suitable spa experience.
The treatment rooms are spacious enough and secluded, sheltering you from the hullabaloo of the outside world as you purely savor your treatment. They have 10 indoor Main Spa Suites complete with top-of-the-line treatment tables and 4 outdoor spa Casitas.
The Retreat Spa Couples’ Therapy Room
Before or after your session, you may also use their other unique features such as the Tonic Bar, which overlooks the spa’s 650-sqm spa garden and free-form pool where you can linger and enjoy refreshments.

The Retreat Spa’s most remarkable facility, the Wave Dream Meditation Chamber, is a first of its kind in Southeast Asia.
This room offers a meditative experience through chromotherapy and high-power LED light projection of dancing waves boosted by sounds of water.
