Treat Yourself To A Romantic Retreat At Nüwa Spa

This love month, why not whisk your partner away for a day of rejuvenation and relaxation?

When life gets busy, two things usually happen, either simultaneously or one after the other. One, you forget to relax and rest. Two, you don’t prioritize spending time with your beloved, and you have little to no time for romance. Not to sound dramatic but both can make the start of 2023 (or any time of the year for that matter) wholly miserable.

Thankfully, respite is never really too far away, and Nüwa Spa at Nüwa Manila, City of Dreams, is the place to go if you want to rejuvenate, relax, and refresh. Inspired by the mother goddess of ancient Chinese mythology, Nüwa Spa features all-natural treatments, remedies, and techniques that draw from the fundamentals of East Asian medicine to draw one into bliss with every wellness journey they curate.


A Romantic Retreat Like No Other

As wellness is of prime importance, especially during this month of love, Nüwa Spa has crafted two rejuvenating packages for couples who wish to experience bliss and relaxation, while spending an unforgettable time together. As the first and only Forbes Travel Guide (FTG) Five Star-rated spa in the country, Nüwa Spa is truly dedicated to innovation, providing a wonderful selection of treatments that are truly world-class—and their spa offerings curated to celebrate Valentine’s Day are no exception to the rule.

First is the “Soul Mate” package (available at Php 14,800 net) where couples can indulge in a bespoke body scrub for 30 minutes, followed by a 90-minute Nüwa signature massage treatment that restores and invigorates, facilitating the feeling of unparalleled relaxation in one’s body, mind, and soul. Second is the “Better Half” package (available at Php 18,800 net) which takes partners into a two hour and 45-minute wellness journey that begins with a 30-minute flower bath, followed by a 90-minute intensive muscle release session to address tense and tired muscles. The soothing session is then finished off with a 45-minute OM express facial, to address skin concerns and leave one feeling refreshed and calm, as well as a complimentary bottle of red wine and a flower box.

(Guests can look forward to enjoying these special couples packages all month long, so don’t fret if you don’t get to book on Valentine’s Day!)

New Workouts To Get You Out Of Your 2022 Rut

Our Own Nüwa Spa Experience

Last weekend, Metro had the opportunity to experience the best-rated spa through the Nüwa Suite Journey package which features three heavenly treatments specially curated to lull one into deep relaxation. The package also comes with a light snack, with menu options ranging from an open-face tuna crostini to a refreshing fresh fruit platter. At the reception, you will be asked when you prefer to have your snack, either during or after your treatment, so a seamless, delightful experience is ensured.

After checking in at the spa reception, you are led to the locker rooms and facilities, where you can change into your spa robes and store your belongings. (Here’s a little tip: Do make sure to come at least 30-45 minutes ahead of your appointment so you have ample time to enjoy the sauna, steam room, and heated vitality dipping pool, prior to your treatments.)


Our personal Nüwa Spa wellness journey officially began with a 30-minute Indulgence Milk Bath that saw us soaking in a bubbly, milky bath with rose petals. (Skin felt so soft afterwards, Cleopatra would be jealous!)  Afterwards, we dug into our chosen light snack: a delicious chopped salad with herb chicken, served with sherry vinaigrette on the side. 

When we finished eating, our therapist Virginia ushered us to the massage table which had been set up perfectly for our 30-minute Coconut-Sea Salt Body Scrub. Here, she gently sloughed off rough, dead layers of the skin to reveal a smoother, more supple surface. A warm, relaxing shower afterwards was in order to rinse the sea salt scrub off.

Finally, it was time for the 60-minute Signature Nüwa Spa Massage, which uses a blend of techniques to knead and relieve all knots and tension in the body. This full-body treatment leaves one feeling rejuvenated and refreshed, and we have to admit that it was difficult to stay awake for the majority of it—it was just that relaxing!


Whether you’re looking for an indulgent spa weekend with your partner, or just to have an extra special spa day all to yourself, Nüwa Spa is a fantastic option for the exquisite menu of relaxing treatments, opulent interiors, and detailed, seamless service.
