Fifth Season Spa: Tranquility in the City...

When I left my job last month and moved back temporarily to the province, I hoped that I'd still be able to attend events and get to see some familiar faces that I would surely miss before I leave for good. And again, my wish has been granted.  I got an invite from a good friend Elaine of Pevonia to attend the opening of a new spa in Ortigas, the Fifth Season Spa.

Situated at the Astoria Plaza, at the heart of Ortigas business district, Fifth Season Spa compliments the hustle and bustle of daily life. They offer a full range of services from body massages, facials, scrubs and mani and pedi.  

The place is feels warm and cozy and would make you want to start right away with your chosen treatment the time you enter the spa.  The place isn't that big, but it's not masikip either.  

The spa has four individual rooms with shower areas designed in rich colors of the seasons: Summer, Autumn, Winter and Spring.  And of course, there's the Fifth Season room, an elegant couples room  with a bath tub, that infuses the four seasons to elicit maximum relaxation.

Once you enter the spa and have chosen a treatment, you'll be treated with their signature "Hand Ritual" which calms the mind and tickle the senses thru aromatherapy.  You get to choose from their selection of aroma salts to cleanse the hands and trigger the relaxation process.  RIght after I had the Hand Ritual, I already wanted to doze off to sleep!

While waiting for my room to become available, I was treated to a Foot Scrub treatment:

best thing about going to a spa? going with a dear friend!  Say Hi to my seatmate, Tara!

The foot scrub comes with a leg and foot massage too!

Apparently, Tara and I won't only be seatmates during the foot scrub treatment. We'll also be "roomies" in the Fifth Season room for our Tropical Delight treatment!

the "couple" camwhoring inside the couples room, hahah!

By the way, those soap bits smell heavenly!  
They smell so good I wanna eat them!

the gigantic least for me who's a size 5.  

Me and Tara had the Tropical Delight, an aromatic scrub that comes with a soothing massage. This one is not as abrasive as the others I've tried.  But I can really feel and see how soft it made my skin after.  The massage itself is also very good, I was able to doze off for a bit even with my dear Tara inside the room.  Yeah, she's that talkative.  LoL!  

Okay, fine.  I'm the talkative one.

By the way, Fifth Season Spa uses Pevonia products in some of their treatments.  Pevonia is an elite, organic skincare line offered by the most prestigious spas worldwide.  Pevonia provides an extensive selection of in-spa treatments to address your every concern and delivers an unsurpassed spa experience. They also have while-at home product to help you maintain healthy and youthful looking skin.  

In short, Pevonia is one good luxury brand. And if a spa uses Pevonia products, you know you're getting your money's worth.

I was supposed to try their Rejuvenating Facial too but I was too stubborn not to have my kilay removed that day. (laughs) Now I regret having not tried that.  Tara and Kumiko both tried and I love how their skin glows right after the treatment.
