Salvador: Sagay Spa’s seashell escapade

Jeepney Jinggoy

MÖVENPICK in Boracay Island will keep you busy with days under the sun for a good tan, dips in the sea water and pool to cool off, fun at the bar while watching the sun set. But the resort also has a private sanctuary you can escape to for some me-time Sagay Spa.

With a space exuding a calming, warm, and friendly vibe, Sagay Spa is the ideal place to slow down, de-stress, and unwind.

The spa practices holistic therapies based on traditions shared by various cultures. Executing it are well-trained professional holistic therapists. They will help you determine the most appropriate treatment based on your preferences and conditions.

On Sagay Spa’s menu, the two signature treatments come highly recommended: the Sagay Regenerating Ritual and Hilot Ritual.

The Hilot Ritual is an ancient Filipino healing art with the use of Tuba Tuba leaves. This treatment starts with a foot bath followed by a deep tissue body massage guaranteed to ease tense muscles.

What I tried was the Sagay Regenerating Ritual. The therapy is inspired by the island’s heritage. It incorporates the sagay shell’s high calcium content with heat and essential oils for a unique wellness experience. The shell’s natural curves, smoothness, and unique character will glide on the body, and with enough pressure, it can penetrate deep into the tense muscle to release tension. The essential oils will also leave the skin feeling soft, supple, and smooth.

At Mövenpick Boracay, dipping in the crystal clear salt water is not only fun but also therapeutic. The resort is not stopping there though. It’s offering the best therapies in the island for a healthy, relaxed you.
