Pampering at Quan Spa, Manila Marriott Hotel

As a writer, I get assigned to the spa beat ever so often. The ironic part is, I’m not really a spa person by any measure. My body does not crave massages, thus I hardly ever visit the spa out of my own accord. Just as well I guess, as I can be more objective about the treatments I write about.

It’s only mid-April and I’m already working on my third spa feature for Health Today Magazine. Needless to say, I’ve been to numerous spas and have gotten to experience a wide array of treatments and massages by this time. And no, I’m still not addicted although I must admit that it’s kind of fun. 😀

Quan Spa reception area at Marriott Manila

My latest spa adventure took me to Marriott Manila’s Quan Spa. The reception area (pictured above) reminded me of a high-end department store in Hong Kong. Various spa products were displayed, and the staff courteously told me to take a seat as they got everything ready.

Quan Spa lounge at Marriott ManilaWelcome drink and questionnaire at Quan Spa Marriott ManilaI was ushered into Quan Spa’s lounge where I was given a welcome drink made of fresh pineapple juice and ginger. It was very cold and refreshing. I was also asked to fill out a health questionnaire to help determine which treatment would best suit me. I was scheduled for the Seaweed Detoxifier — more on that in the June issue of Health Today Magazine… hehe. 😀

Treatment rooms at Quan Spa Marriott ManilaQuan Spa’s treatment rooms are very impressive. In fact they make almost every other spa I’ve been to seem shabby in comparison. There are single treatment rooms, a couples room (pictured above, right), a bathing suite equipped with a tub and a big LCD TV, and a reflexology lounge. Each treatment room has its own toilet, shower, and dressing area (pictured above, left) complete with amenities like combs, disposable underwear, shower caps, robes, towels, slippers… you don’t have to bring anything except yourself.

Reflexology Lounge at Quan Spa Marriott ManilaI particularly liked the bright and happy-looking reflexology lounge (pictured above) where all hand and foot treatments are conducted. The least expensive service you can have here is the Spa Foot Ritual (P1500 for 45 minutes) which consists of a foot bath, exfoliation, massage, and detoxification using black Moor mud.

Relaxation Lounge at Quan Spa Marriott ManilaQuan Spa has a relaxation lounge (pictured above) where you can lay back, relax, and even sleep right after your treatment.

A pot of hot tea at Quan SpaYou will also be given a pot of hot tea, which is really the perfect way to cap off an hour or two of pampering.

Quan Spa’s staff are very courteous and knowledgeable. The therapist I got was also very good. I actually fell asleep while she was massaging my scalp, it was just so relaxing.
All this luxury doesn’t come cheap though. The least pricey full body massage is the Aroma Fusion Massage, and one hour of it costs P1,900. Aside from massages you can also avail of facials, scrubs, and wraps. Parking is not a problem since Quan Spa can validate your parking ticket if you park in Marriott Manila’s basement.
Thanks Meikah for helping me out! 😀
