  • The Retreat Spa at Okada Manila: Offering Holistic, Spiritual Spa Experience
  • For many people in modern times, especially those in modern cities, self-care is often seen as a luxury that one’s busy schedule cannot afford. Taking the time to pamper oneself, however, is a very important factor for productivity and stress management. It is important to let our body, heart, and soul breathe and break free from stress and anxieties every once in a while.

    The Retreat Spa at Okada Manila opened its doors in September 2018.

    Seeing this need for self-care, Okada Manila opened The Retreat Spa, a full-service wellness center that offers a truly holistic, “almost spiritual,” spa experience. This “hybrid spa,” true to its name, proves to be a great retreat for people seeking a quick and accessible escape from the hectic city.

    The Retreat Spa Reception, welcoming guests into an urban sanctuary.

    The main spa, measuring about 2,500-sqm, houses various facilities that, despite being situated in the midst of the bustling metro, make you feel as if you’re entering a paradise, a place where time moves as gently as a forest stream. You will not be pressured by time—you can relax and enjoy the facilities, before and/or after your treatment, at your own pace, no time limit.

    The Retreat Spa Pool

    The Retreat Spa is greatly inspired by Eastern cultures, incorporating various oriental techniques to deliver the optimal relaxation for the body and soul. Known to be centered on balance and harmony, the Eastern massage techniques carried out by the therapists feature rhythmic and soothing strokes that take your mind away and into a paradise.

    The treatments are personalized—you start with a consultation with your therapist to determine your most suitable treatment. The treatment rooms are spacious and secluded, sheltering you from the hullabaloo of the outside world as you purely savor your treatment.

    The Retreat Spa Couples’ Therapy Room

    After your treatment, you may head to the spa’s most remarkable, unique facility—the Wave Dream Meditation Chamber, a first of its kind in Southeast Asia. The room offers a meditative experience through chromotherapy and high-power LED light projection. In the chamber, you lie on your back so you directly face the ceiling where images of rippling water are projected while the mood is boosted by sounds of water. You may let your mind drift away or fall into a slumber.
