Weekend spa at Sonya's Garden

It was one of those random weekends that we headed to Tagaytay after my almost week-long conference. Initially, we just wanted a scrumptious dinner at Breakfast at Antonio's and then coffee at Starbucks. But we arrived in Tagaytay way too early for dinner. 

We did the next best thing -- search for a spa place. So, we found ourselves at Sonya's Garden. 

The entire property is inlaid with red bricks. I think some are salvaged from old houses.
Dainty corner for book reading.
 At Sonya's Garden, you'll find yourself surrounded by shrubs, bougainvilleas and other flowering plants. It's as if you've stepped into a hideaway in the country.

These steps lead to the The Spa.
The spa house has a water feature in each room. When you're inside, it seems like it's raining outside. So, while you're enjoying your massage, surely you'll be lulled into sleep. Just like me! 

The massage rooms are very homey primarily made of wood and capiz shells. 
Here you'll be asked to change into sarong.

There's a small locker for your belongings but you can also just prop your bag on this occasional table. 

Each massage room is outfitted with a shower and set of toiletries.
The spa's menu is quite extensive which ranges from simple facials to spa packages. For our treatment, we opted to just enjoy an hour-long Shiatsu massage (P756/each).
Dalandan tea after massage. Very refreshing!
Wishlist: Scented and lighted candles in massage rooms! It should complete the relaxing ambiance.
Adjacent to the spa is this store with so many lovely concoctions. 

The store looks very promising. It sells organic home scents in vintage bottles. You can also find body creams, bugs repellant, bar soaps in really beautiful packaging. Am thinking they can be a well-thought of gift this Christmas. 

If you're thinking of a relaxing weekend in Tagaytay, consider going to Sonya's Garden. Just a word of caution though, it's kinda far. In fact, it's already in Alfonso, Cavite. But I tell you, it's worth the trip. Before you head home, you can buy freshly baked bread and pastries and potted herbs.
