Nurture Village Spa Tagaytay

Nurture Village Spa Tagaytay

They say today is the time that people are mostly stressed, depressed who consider spas, relaxation as part of their necessities. Actually I would like to agree with it, I believe our body also needs its proper way of being pampered not just a rest at home, laying down in bed, sitting would do. We should give our body its time to be conditioned at its best and reward it for even just sometimes if we felt the needs.

Today Spa's are everywhere now, It has really been a trend now and this only proves that most us now want a relaxation time more than the usual before. But speaking of spas, by its trend right now we can also notice that spas quality today is quite becoming cheaper and cheaper caused by the competition and this means also that the quality of the services also decreases. 

I have seen and tried services from different spas, some of my experiences were fine, some were not and instead of relaxation, I felt my pain for my body. I thought spas are all just the same not until I have seen this Village Spa in Tagaytay, the 'Nurture Village Spa.'

I've decided to grab events that are more on lifestyle now unlike before that I cover mostly entertainment events. I just felt the toxic from the entertainment or specifically showbiz matters. though entertainment was really my first love in terms of blogging but I want to create a name as myself in blogging, and meanwhile it helps me as a person to discover new things especially different lifestyles I can adopt and apply to myself.

Recently, we had a bloggers' tour at Nurture Village Spa in Tagaytay. And as I've mentioned that this Village spa is the best spa I've ever seen, it really has a perfect location in Tagaytay. Apart from the spa-ing, this place is a place for a real relaxation, you can choose from their different types of rooms to stay there. 

Nurture Village Spa is really more than just for wellness, for me I find the place best also for soul searching, adventure and for fun. Soul searching since the place is in the forest sceneries, its very quiet there, you can talk to the the nature and talk to God as well. Adventure as I've said it's like a paradise inside a forest, so basically you can camp there, they also offer tents as room and there are activities for active persons like this challenging game platform (I forgot what it's called though).

The massage therapists at the Nurture Village Spa are all licensed, this only means that you will only experience only best services, what I am amazed to discover is that they have this 'hilot massage'that I believe will surely remove colds in our body and did I mentioned that you will surely love the ambiance of their outdoor spas, you can breathe the fresh air along with the very pleasing view to your eyes! This is undeniably what Health and Wellness means!

Aside from Spa, what I loved mostly from our tour here was of course the food! They served us all authentic pinoy dishes like brown riced arozcaldo with native chicken, Kakanins like Kusinta and Bico. I tasted also siomai and also loved their hot chocolate. 

I haven't really stayed here yet and experience massage(I tried only the head and shoulders massage) and the rooms, but really soon! since I got an overnight stay here! I'm just about to schedule it but I am really looking forward to finally experience more everything here, the tour already gave me this different kind of relaxation only by seeing the place itself really relaxes you. Til next time, when I come back here, I'll keep you posted about my experience.

Please feel free to browse the other photos below. I didn't want to cascade my article so the other photos lie below :)

Boracay Paradise


I was really excited that time to finally see why Boracay beach gains these much praises from Asia and even the world. Boracay is named as the best beach in Asia and I heard second when it comes to world, if I'm not mistaken.

I was with a cousin(brought him to be my official photog hihi) when I went in Boracay. Our plane trip bounded to Kalibo, I chose Kalibo to experience travel, more cheaper that Caticlan Airport and since our flight also was that early as 4:20 AM departing by 5: 20 AM. It took I think 1 hour or more than to take us to Caticlan from Kalibo, we rode a van, I enjoyed the travel though since its morning early, I witnessed the sunrise while traveling, and its just so perfect for me!

When we arrived in Caticlan, we have rode a boat that took I think only 20 mins. Finally touchdown Boracay Island!

Before Checking in, in our hotel (Grand Boracay, Station 2) I really wanted to see the white Beach, and this is what I frist did, I came to see the white beach and I'm just wowed! Boracay is a real Paradise! I am thanking God for creating this paradise and putting it in the Philippines. Boracay is really alive, so many foreigners that are much more than us Filipinos, most of them are Koreans.

The purest white sand, perfect super clean blue and green water of Boracay would really relieve any of your stress, problem you'll forget anything and just felt relaxed!

Boracay Night Life


Boracay is even much alive at night! I don't know but I noticed more people at night strolling around, maybe because they don't want to stroll at day because of the sun's heat or it's just partying in Boracay is just irrisistbale. Our Hotel was inside the D Mall and that's a really good location for me, D Mall is a mall of course but it's an outdoor mall, really cool wide variety shops to explore from clothing stores to souvernirs, to foods, pharmacy, swimming gears and everything else. At the front beach during night, resto's and shops are placing tables, cocktail-tables, chairs setting outside, with some matching with singers and performers and also some are performing of course with the fire-dancers which was really so pleasing for the eyes. You will really experience life in Boracay!

Helmet Diving in Boracay

I didn't left Boracay without trying any of the most exciting activites out there. When you walk around the beach, plenty of these people you will encounter asking you to try out different activities like, surfing, snorkling, banana boat, jet-skying, speed-boating, diving and the activity that I chose to do was the helmet diving! Originally it was not a plan of mine but since everytime in the beach, every hour, minute there's someone will ask you to try these activities so I got convinced. But what really conviced me to try helmet diving was when I kne that the package (700-800 php) willl include a CD of your photos and videos under the water. I've always wanted to have a picure of me underwater, although I'm a bit scared of this activity, I've faced my fears and then I experienced it, and it was really unforgettable, this was my first experience under the water though I know myself how I'm afraid of the seas, ocean etc. You should try helmet diving once you went to Boracay, I'll assure you'll enjoy this and it'll be unforgettable, don't be afraid because there are divers to assist you all the way, it's safe!.

Boracay Sand Castles

I said to myself that when I get to Borcay, I would really have a picture in these Sand Castles in Boracay, and yes I did complete having a photo with Sand Castles in my short stay there. Boracay Sand Castles are build by these children, some our teen they build these castles to earn, you will be charged by them after you have a picture with their Sand Castles but anyway you can give them just tips and they'll be fine with it.

My Boracay trip was really special because I felt I am closer to God when I'm there, I can feel his presence everytime I see this paradise he made for us, the place was really so beautiful, and there you can really relax, have peace of mind and you'll forget your problems. I really thank God for having Boracay in the Philippines! I'd probably be in Boracay every year if I can, I just really loved this place. I hope you find this article well. Thanks for reading :)
