Holidays are fast approaching and all you can ever think of are your year-end deadlines, Christmas parties, Christmas shopping and family gatherings and we are all busy as ever and most of the time we find ourselves beyond tired and exhausted. And all we could ever think of is to just escape, run away and relax.
Well, you don’t have to literally run away or escape to a faraway place. You can do that without having to leave the city. Where in Pampanga has got you covered with that, we have discovered this newly opened spa that’s located in the center of Angeles City (along with Don, Juico Boulevard to be specific). You are guaranteed to get the pampering and relaxation that you want.
Aside from the owners’ and staff’s warm welcome, an aromatic minty scent has prepped my mind and body for the most anticipated ‘spa time’. It’s like telling me ‘you’re in for a much-needed relaxation’ I was so used to citrus-ish or lemony scent being used by most spas so I find their wonderful scent something new, nice and relaxing – talking about good first impression!
While we were in the lounge, drinking free drinks, we had the chance to talk to the owners, Ms. Eunice and Mr. Ren. We have learned that this is not just another spa business or just another couple trying to earn a living but this has been a long-time dream so Royal Dream Spa is in fact 10 years in the making, it is built on patience, perseverance and the right timing
First, we go to the spa facilities. A cozy lounge/receiving area will welcome you as you enter the spa. The Royal Dream spa has enough rooms to accommodate a single customer to a group of people. They have a room for all foot services and treatments which has 6 spa chairs and of course, they have a total of 13 massage beds – single and couple included. So there’s enough room even when there’s a high volume of customers not to mention the clean showers and restroom too. One of the first things I check out whenever I go to a spa is the hygiene and cleanliness of the place and Royal Dream Spa is no doubt a clean and neat spa.
Now we go to my most awaited part of this spa experience – the massage! I had an hour of full body massage, well what can I tell you? I was asleep the whole time! So it was really that good. Kidding aside, the staffs were friendly, polite and respectful (another one point for them!). They don’t just perform the massage – they would explain what they were about to do and tell you what’s next and make sure the pressure is just right.
I also got to try ear candling for the first time. I was actually hesitant to try it just because I thought it’s weird and scary but they were able to convince me that it’s safe, painless and it will clean your ears from areas cotton buds can’t reach. They don’t just provide you these services but they also tell you why and when to get these services which also make their staff knowledgeable and well informed.
Here are some other services and treatments you can avail from them: Full body massage with hot stone or ventosa, Full body scrub, foot spa, foot reflex (this is a must try!), manicure, pedicure and hair spa ranging from 100 php to 900 php. You can also try their different spa packages which are all great deals to consider.
What also impressed me is how they treat their staff and how they have high regards and respect for their employees. In fact, they have a note in the receiving area saying, ‘The management reserves the right to discontinue service at any time at its discretion. Inappropriate behaviour towards our staff will not be tolerated.’ And again, this is the first spa that I’ve been to with that disclaimer. I guess it’s safe to say that it’s literally and figuratively a clean spa.
I would definitely go back to Royal Dream spa not just because it’s a good spa but because of the added value and the entire customer service experience that resonated with me as a customer.
