Info about Tirta Spa Boracay
The primary reason for having my Boracay trip is to enjoy and forget all work-related stress. It was an excellent decision that I have included Tirta Spa in my itinerary. The renowned spa is stationed in Sitio Malabunot, Manoc-Manoc in Boracay Island- a 15-20 minute drive from the main road. A visit here is perfect if you intend to simmer down for a while and forget about all the negative things that bother you. I had the chance to visit the spa in our Boracay trip. In this post, I will share my blissful experience at Tirta Spa Boracay.
Upon reaching the place, you will be astounded with the elegant entrance of the structure and picturesque surroundings, showcasing a taste of different Asian cultures. The sound of the gongs announced our arrival, which releases all the negative energy. Upon entering the lobby, I couldn’t help but admire the choice of furniture and decorations inside the hall and to see all the accolades speak why they are the best and number one spa in Boracay.
All of the awards they have earned since they opened in 2007 proved that Ms. En Calvert, the owner and managing director (now based in Dubai), has indeed succeeded in making Tirta Spa a world-class spa. Since 2012, they have been bagging prestigious international spa industry awards – (“Best Day Spa in Asia and the Asia Pacific” and “Best Luxury Day Spa”) in different organizations. In 2015, they received the Certificate of Excellence Award from TripAdvisor, thus enlisted them into Hall of Fame.
Rose, the front desk officer, greeted us. She gave us each a glass of fresh calamansi juice and asked me to register. Because I was still enthralled with every single detail in the lobby, I didn’t even notice that Rose was asking me to choose a spa package. I selected the Anti-time Facial and body massage (one of the Biodroga Facial packages) because my skin needs pampering. I would want to achieve a youthful look. She asked me to select an oil that the therapist will use for the massage– I have chosen Ylang-ylang because it helps to release stress and anxiety.
Meeting Ms. Cecille Acuna
Before the treatment, I was fortunate to meet the gorgeous and charming manager, Ms. Cecille Acuna. As we have a quick tour of the 1-hectare property, she shared to me how her sister, Ms. En Calvert, had made Tirta the best spa on the island. Because they already have made a name in the international spa industry, that was the perfect time to open a branch in Dubai. For that reason, Ms. Cecille had to take over, and with the help of Ms. En, she was able to manage Tirta Spa.
Tour around the area
The fantastic view itself will make you feel relaxed, what more if you have availed one of their spa packages? Tirta Spa is currently the leading spa in Boracay not only because of the impressive architectural design and exhilarating ambiance but of their superb service. The rates might be considered extravagant –because they are offering service beyond compare and all of the ingredients/products used are of premium quality.
The Prashant Spa
On our way to the villas, we passed by Prashant Spa, a Tirta brand with affordable rates. This is perfect for Filipinos who would like to have the Tirta Spa experience — the same quality of service, same therapists, the only thing that differs is the ambiance and set-up. On the second floor, I have spotted a hidden haven- a luxury Home Stay accommodation at Tirta Spa Boracay. (I have written this is a separate post.).
The Villas at Tirta Spa Boracay
There are three Royal Suite Villas that you can choose at Tirta Spa (Indonesian, Thai and Indian-Moroccan Villa). Each villa has amenities which include a private bathroom, bathtub and vichy rain shower.
As I entered the Thai villa, relaxing music was played- setting the mood for me to unwind. Before the treatment, I was introduced to Lady (my therapist) and April (her assistant. At first, I felt uncomfortable, but they were very professional in dealing with their customers. I was given complete instructions – from undressing, taking a shower, and putting my stuff in the safety deposit box.
Before the Treatment
The treatment started with the foot ritual. “Tirta” comes from the Hindu word means “Holy Water,” which cleanses our body and soul and drives away all the negative energy. Lady placed a white flower on my right ear, and she gave me fresh ginger tea.
The Foot Ritual
After the foot wash, Lady presented the Biodroga products that she will use for my Anti-Time Facial and body massage which is priced at P7,320. The authentic Biodroga products that they using are from Germany.
The Biodroga for my Anti-Time Treatment
Time has finally come, and I had one of the most unforgettable activities in Boracay 2017– the Tirta Spa Experience! Hubby and I had the complimentary massage by the beach last year (part of Estacio Uno’s package when you book with them), but it was a different experience. Honestly, instead of feeling relaxed, I felt like I was beaten.
In the registration, I have chosen to have medium pressure in the massage and even requested to have a 10-minute focus on the upper back. I was about to ask Lady to shift into light pressure in the leg part, but she knew whether her client is comfortable or not. As if she can read my mind, she asked me if I would like to have the massage in lighter pressure. She made sure I was comfortable in the entire treatment. I didn’t hear any conversation from her and her assistant. When she was talking to me, her voice was like that of one of the sirens ( a creature in Greek mythology who lured sailors with their enchanting music and sounds). I resisted the temptation to fall asleep because I would like to enjoy every second of the treatment.
After the treatment, I felt younger and rejuvenated. I received a compliment from hubby, and my daughter Shane told me that I looked young, and I had a different glow. For spa lovers, especially those who would like to look and feel younger, I recommend Anti-Time Facial and Body Massage.
