My Tropical Delight Body Treatment from Pevonia and Fifth Season Spa + RAFFLE!

Third Friday of the month:  Fun / Leisure / Raffle

One of my guilty pleasures is having a full body treatment at a spa.  These days, I'd be lucky if I can squeeze in an hour of pampering in a month.  Last July, premium skin care brand Pevonia invited me to experience one of the special body care treatments at the newly opened Fifth Season Spa in Ortigas Center.  I've enjoyed my Pevonia treatments in the past and the spa is conveniently located, so this was an invitation I could not refuse.

Fifth Season Spa, managed by Elohim Spa Solutions, welcomed bloggers and media friends at the formal opening of their cozy establishment last July 24.  The place is smaller than other spas I've visited, but my stay was still very comfortable.  The spa is inviting, well-designed, and is conveniently located in Astoria Plaza, in the bustling Ortigas business district.  Since my schedule was tight that day, my treatment was moved to another day so I can completely relax and experience their services without the rush.

Here's a quick tour of the spa. 
This is where guests are welcomed and immediately ushered to the hand ritual area.  
It was my first time to experience this type of hand-washing service.  I chose from different aroma salts where the oil-infused salts trigger the relaxation process.  

They also have a 4-seater lounge area where hands and feet get pampered.

The cozy day spa features 5 private rooms:
Winter, Spring, Summer, Autumn, and Fifth Season.  Each room carry the season's theme while the Fifth Season combines all the four seasons in an elegant setting.  Their services cater to both men and women.

Fifth Season Spa services:
  • Massage - Relaxing, Shiatsu, Hilot, Hot Lava Stone
  • Body Care - Green Tea Crush, Luminous Peal Therapy, Tropical Delight
  • Facial Therapy - Appetizer, Water Lily, Rejuvenating (Pevonia Botanica products)
  • Foot and Nail Care - Foot reflexology, Radiant and Luxury foot spas, Cold Stone footsies, manicure and pedicure
Hall way leading to the private treatment rooms

I like that Fifth Season Spa also provides their guests with Philippine-made products such as natural handmade glycerin soaps, and complimentary Bayani Brew iced tea from Gawad Kalinga.

Before I left the event, I was able to take a peek of the Summer room - with light yellow walls and painted flowers in full bloom.  All private rooms have a shower area, vanity chair, massage bed, a robe, full set of towels, and a hand bell to call in the therapist.

Pevonia's Jenny Casitas, and Liza del Rosario of Elohim for the invitation.

When I went back for my treatment a few days later, I was led to the Autumn room for my body scrub and massage.  The Autumn room is done in a soothing muted shade of gray with burgundy floral accents.  I was psyched and ready for my me-time.

All facial and special body treatments use premium Swiss brand Pevonia, like the 120-minute body care treatment I indulged in.

The last body scrub I had was also with Pevonia, which I think was two years ago! That's why I chose to have the Tropical Delight treatment:
  1. Shower (optional)
  2. Salt scrub all over the body - Pevonia's salt scrub contains papaya-pineapple extracts, helps remove impurities and toxins by gently polishing your skin
  3. Rinse/shower
  4. Full body massage

After my 2-hour treat, I really felt squeaky clean, fresh, rejuvenated, and relieved of my tense muscles and lower back pains.  It was two hours well spent, thanks to Pevonia and Fifth Season Spa.
