Devarana Spa (Dusit Manila): Garden in Heaven

Devarana Spa of Dusit Thani Manila brings something different to whole spa experience. The award winning spa (Platinum Winner: Spa of the Year and Signature Spa Experience, Regional Series. Hospitality Asia Platinum Awarsds 211-2013) has started a series of holistic health prevention programs that would be perfect for the sudden and erratic weather changes.

Devarana has a dramatic way of welcoming you to a world of pampering and relaxation. The main entrance, with its water features and foyer, already leads you to a private sanctuary in the busy district of Makati.

Devarana, which means garden in heaven in Thai-Sanskrit, has an impressive reception area that will make all guests feel like VIPs. The contemporary Thai design provides an atmosphere ideal for the tired mind and body. I would say that the Thai Style canopied couches let me imagine myself somewhere far from Manila.

The Spa has six beautiful and lavish treatment rooms, from a Standard room to a Grand Suite. You can never go wrong with any of them.

The Grand Suite - Ideal for any big celebration with your special someone.

There is also a separate area for you manicure and pedicure.

Among all the treatment options, the staff of Devarana recommended the Cardigan Hideaway (PHP 7,900 ++), a 3-hour spa retreat that aims to warm you up, boost your immunity, and thoroughly nourish your skin.

When I saw my suite, I was immediately transported to Spa heaven (I'll be posting more of my personal pictures soon.)

Before my arrival, my therapist had already prepared my tub for my 30-minute Thai Herbal Coffee Bath. As I dipped my whole body into the warm water, the aroma of the coffee easily made me forget how mentally exhausted I was from work.

After my bath, my skin was given a detoxifying Cocoa Caffeine and Vanilla Body Wrap with Reviving Source Facial Mask. There was something sinful about chocolate being lathered all over your body. I was then wrapped like a a lumpia using a thermal blanket. I could feel my body slowly being cleansed as some of the toxins escaped through my open pores.  To remove the chocolate wrap off my body, I was asked to take a warm shower. I looked at myself in the mirror first and saw walking and talking chocolate bar. Slowly, as the chocolate was washed away, I noticed my skin looked more vibrant and healthier. You know the best part of this wrap though: I smelled like chocolate!

The last part of the program was the Aromatic Contouring and Detoxifying Massage. My therapist had a unique way of kneading my "knotted" body. Next thing I knew, I drifted to dreamland. When I heard a voice saying "Sir, the treatment is finished", I did not want to wake up. For a moment there, I truly found myself in Devarana, a garden in heaven.

If you are looking for an ultimate spa experience, this might be it. I'll definitely be back for more. Spas will never be the same again
