Relaxing Retreat at DSB’s Terra Wellness Spa

Aside from summer, the cool breeze of December gives Boracay its second peak season carrying droves of local and international tourists alike. Since it has re-opened a little more than two months ago, the island is slowly adjusting to the new rules and policy of the ‘New Boracay‘.

It is now more serene, clean, and paradise-like. This led us to throwback-reminisce on our wellness experience early this year at Terra Wellness Spa in Seats For Two‘s favorite resort hotel in Boracay – Discovery Shores.

Our trip to Discovery Shores Boracay early this year (before it closed temporarily) was light and easy. We skipped water activities such as kayaking, snorkeling, and island hopping since we’ve tried in the past. We simply enjoyed swimming at the white beach and at the DSB‘s hotel-resort amenities such as the swimming pool, hot jacuzzi, and Terra Wellness Spa, among others.

It’s actually not our first time in Terra Wellness Spa, we’v tried their in-house spa in 2015 on our first visit to Discovery Boracay. But as they say, you can never have too much of a good thing. 🙂

We longed for its soothing massage and booked a Couple’s Spa Room.

At the reception, we were already welcomed with two friendly therapists. They offered cold pandan tea prior to the treatment while we explore our options for the blended oils to use.

There are four categories – calming, rejuvenating, uplifting, and detoxifying. Guests can choose from essential oils including bergamot, rosemary, lemongrass, peppermint, lavender and orange.

We were then led in a nice, spacious couple’s room with toilet and bath.

The pampering started with Discovery Shores’s signature foot wash using natural ingredients to help exfoliate dead skin.

We then lied on the spa bed beside each other and had the 60 minutes of the Terra’s Touch Signature Massage (Php 1,700 for 60 minutes / Php 2,400 for 90 minutes). It’s a deep-tissue relaxing massage with combined slow and graceful gliding strokes.

With a calming spa music / background, you may even fall asleep; Mrs. Seats For Two did!

The treatment is made more rejuvenating with the use of blended therapeutic oils.

Aside from the Terra’s Touch, they also offer Hilot Haplos which is an ancient Filipino art of healing with the combination of medium Deep Tissue Massage. It is said to be invigorating and tension-relieving. This type of massage is recommended after a whole day of island hopping across Boracay.
