Mandala Spa

3. Spring for a Hilot massage

The little-known Filipino Hilot healing ritual has been around for centuries, and is a remarkably effective way to soothe sore muscles, restore circulation and put you in a blissful frame of mind for the rest of your holiday.

To experience the real deal, check in to the secluded Mandala Spa & Villas for their award-winning 'Hilot Trilogy'. The treatment features banana leaf stripping to detect areas of imbalance, ventosa or vacuum cupping, a traditional Hilot body massage with extra virgin coconut oil, and a therapeutic foot massage originating from the rice terraces of Banaue. Each spa guest is gifted with a complimentary sarong, and if you're fortunate enough to be staying at Mandala, you can always retreat to the tranquillity of the resort's nature-inspired garden villas.
