Olal’s Botanical & Nature Spa

Olal’s Botanical & Nature Spa

“No matter how much it gets abused, the body can restore balance. The first rule is to stop interfering with nature.” ~Deepak Chopra~

On your right side, when you’re coming from SLEX (South Luzon Express way) upon exiting San Pedro, you’ll find Olal’s Botanical & Nature Spa.

I spotted said place while I’m on my way home from work and immediately asked Jen (my spa buddy for years) that we try it over one weekend.

It would be best if you reserve your slots especially if you’re visiting in the afternoon onwards. So we did.

From it’s name, the place upholds an array of greens, unmistakably transporting you from a city to a Botanical garden. It actually feels breezy and tranquil.

We had our usual Swedish massage for an hour, the strokes are fine, my favorite part is the special foot wash in a dim-lighted room with the leaves that I’ve been loving lately, painted on their walls. A sight to behold specifically for me.

Some spas missed to provide their clients the basics: hot towel after the massage itself. Just so to get rid of that oily feel. A hot cup of flavored tea. And probably some corteous inquiry if the service went well. Olal’s did all that. =)

So, I’m comfortable recommending them if you’re needing that massage therapy to relieve tensions and release those happy hormones. =)

Most of my weekends I spend like it’s my “Me time”. Sometimes, I have to agree that being alone can sometimes be lonely, however, I am not supposed to tolerate myself to think that way.

One of the things that helps me get by, is a good massage. So one afternoon, I came across this one Spa 15 minutes (30 if there’s traffic) from my place. The name is Rovia.

Their page says reservation is necessary in advance. And so one weekend, I was able to get one slot for an hour of Swedish massage.

The place is quiet, it felt quiet too. The soft music being played created a more soothing atmosphere. Not to forget mentioning the timeless beauty and classic feel of their “black & white” interiors. There are different accent pieces in every corner that isn’t straining to the eyes. I felt relaxed instantly.

It isn’t peak yet when I arrived, the smiling attendant: Joanne, asked me to fill up a Membership form, there are several questions there like where I do not want to be touched, medical history, etc. I appreciate it than some spas which will direct you to the room right away without any inquiry of your preferences.

After I finished filling-out said form, Joanne offered me to sit and asked me to soak my feet in this small black tub with warm water with a few suds in it. She carefully dried my feet with a towel and guided me to our assigned room.

Without waiting for her inquiry, I asked her to do it lightly and as she started doing her strokes in my back, she asked if the pressure is okay with me. With that clock on the wall, we finished exactly after an hour and she readied a hot towel and hot tea while I am resting.

For less than P500.00 and even less if its off peak, I have found now a place where to get a good massage. Those I’ve kept for years in Pacita Complex somehow deteriorated and I noticed that there is a fast turn-over of those who’ve been my favorites. I miss “Manang”, she took care of my back pains for years and I have been searching for her upon knowing she resigned because she had to take care of her sick husband.

Rovia has a cafe too though what’s only available are the drinks.

Illy is the brand that they carry for their coffee drinks.

Rovia Nail lounge and Body spa is located at Km. Canlalay ( Half Km. from Pacita-Binan Boundary) Praferosa Bldg (Beside Right Choice Thriftmart & Fabric Clean Laundry Services), 32 Manila S Rd, Biñan, 4024 Laguna

I intend to have my nails done by them too. They use my favorite paint brand: Orly and Essie. =)
