Mountain Bays Touch- Medi Spa- Eco Resort and Suites

I decided it was time to have a girlie day, so I invited my niece to have a massage with me at a local spa called Mountain Bays Touch. Monica found it on the internet and was told by friends it was nice. Off we went down the National Highway headed south, left at the PPC City Hall, down a dirt road a bit, and voila! A big surprise at the end of the road!

It was totally worth going and we will be back. In fact they even have
native cottage suites for rent as well as regular rooms, an on site restaurant and a minimal fee for a van to take you to town, as it's a bit out of the Town Center. It's tempting to take Dave there for a bit of a Honeymoon getaway!
The place is well made with detail to landscaping and placement of cozy nooks to sit in. They've used mostly native materials and rocks. The whole place feels clean, lush and very inviting. Beautiful plants and flowers scattered here and there.
I think this particular native Banaue style hut is for massage. There is one that is delightfully and very aethetic with a veranda overlooking the bay and the mangroves.
Beatuful wooden and geometrically pleasing steps lead down the building to the massage rooms. There is a mangrove area off the seaside as the view from the whole place. I was already getting relaxed on the way to my massage.
Very clean massage rooms with privacy drapes and aircons in every stall. The one thing missing was some good background spa music or some such diversion. The massage itself very relaxing, so complaints. I'm more into trigger therapy. Just dig in an nail those aches. However, since it was my intention to just relax, it fit the bill just fine.

 I didn't expect the place to be so sprawling. I'd been to a small salon spa in town and it certainly doesn't compare to this. They don't have a lot of clientele yet it seems, considering how many tourists are in town. I think is so off the beaten track, one really has to know about it to go there.
This hut has a wooden veranda with full view of the bay and mangroves. It is available for overnight guests with a full bathroom with tub and shower, flat screen TV, locking cabinets and airconditioning!

This is inside the hut. A not quite double bed. But it's clean and the porch makes it really nice. The breeze was so delightful off the water, it was blowing the curtains around.

A real bathtub! Very rare this part of the world.
The locking closets. The small room sports a small flat screen TV and a fridge.

A relaxed pair after our massages. It was 600. pesos each. They do take senior discounts as well.
Me and my niece Monica Eleazar Manzano after our massage!

One of the pretty flowers around the property.

A creative use of mahogony seed pod parts, normally raked up and burned or thrown away. I save them too and have been thinking of other uses for them. But this beats burning them anyway.
