Calm as the Pacifico-A A +A
Tuesday, February 12, 2013
AS THE Portuguese explorer Ferdinand Magellan started his voyage en route Moluccas (Maluku Islands) in Indonesia or what is known in the history as Spice Islands, he came across an ocean, the largest in the world, and that he gave it a name Pacifico.
It was named then Pacifico as the voyager and his crews happened to traverse the vast ocean with a very fine and tranquil weather in the absence of fearful howling winds in quest of the most-coveted island of spices, but completely oblivious to what possible danger it can give.
In Davao City, there's a spa so named after Pacifico because of the services it offers to relax the weary soul of the clients.
Pacific Spa has been offering a complete set of essential relaxation services ranging from massage and luxury body scrub for quite a long period in the city. It also offers different facial services.
Located on C.M Recto Street, that brick built spa has an ambient atmosphere with an interior tarted up with shells of different sizes.
These adornments, which are neatly arrayed in the spa's reception area, are what will welcome the guests upon setting foot at the doorstep.
Although located at the heart of downtown Davao, the spa gives its clients the feel of seclusion from the bustling metropolis the moment they step inside.
James Abayata, manager of Pacific Spa, boasted of the spa's signature massage services, which include seashell massage, Touch of Pacific, and body and soul with ventusa.
With all the seashells they use, it's almost the same feeling getting a massage service under a canopy along the shore of Boracay, although less the ocean breeze.
For the back stone, Pacific Spa uses shells in place of rocks and this is what keeps loyal clients from coming back, according to Abayata.
Among the facial services Pacific Spa offers are diamond peel, cleansing facial, deep cleansing facial, whitening vitality, wrinkle removing facial, back facial relief, and warts removal. For the body scrub, they have kape barako scrub, rose bath scrub, pure cacao chocolate scrub, and invigorating green tea.
Among the massage services include foot reflex, quick stress healing, namokoshi shiatsu, Swedish smooth, Hawaiian lomi-lomi, and superb Thai massage.
Pacific Spa also has different package offerings for Dabawenyos. For every package, a client may already enjoy from-head-to-toe services.
