Day Spa Perfect for Couples
If you're looking to treat yourself & your partner the 4 hour couples day spa at Viva Spa is a perfect option.
After meeting your friendly therapists and deciding on your massage preference, relaxing or firm, your session starts with a 1 hour massage. Part of this process includes a hot volcanic rock treatment which is said to help relieve tension and muscle stiffness. The massage is followed by a full body exfoliation and then a full body mask, you can choose from chocolate, mud or fruits according to your skin type or preference.
Next is a relaxing bubble bath to hydrate your skin. Followed by a relaxing facial and then a full body hydration treatment. Your hair is given a aloe vera treatment and then your hands and feet are quickly immersed in hot paraffin wax which is then peeled off, leaving them silky smooth.
You're provided with aromatic tea throughout the treatment and the day ends with a platter of fresh fruits. Viva Spa can also accommodate special occasions such as birthdays and anniversaries. For half a day of pure indulgence you can expect to pay perhaps half or even a quarter of what you'd pay in the United States.
Viva Spa can be found in two convenient locations, one in Poblado and the other in Laureles.
