Set within a beautiful tropical forest, Trisara is a garden sanctuary offering private pools, stunning sea views and an absolute sense of privacy in all of its accommodation. The Trisara Spa, located on the hillside above the pool villas, houses six private treatment suites, each a luxurious 100 sq metres of space – furnished with a steam room, two showers, a relaxation area and deck, with stunning sea view to boot. Treatments here consist of body wraps, scrubs, facials and a wide selection of massages including their famous ‘Royal Trisara’, the world’s first six-handed massage with three uniquely skilled therapists dedicated to pampering you to your heart’s content.
The Farm is an award winning medical and wellness retreat set within a gorgeous coconut and coffee plantation, two hours south of Manila. Their programs are tailored to your individual specific health needs, and focus on medically guided detoxification as well as psycho-emotional release. At The Farm, enjoy gourmet vegan food served with a twist, and zone-out in the healing bath water, pumped from a well a hundred feet below the ground. Also, something to look out for this coming April would be the integrative Yoga Detox with Nick Atlas, who has years of experience in the healing arts under his belt.
