My Lovely Experience at I'm Onsen Spa

by - Friday, January 19, 2018


I hate massages. I always find them incredibly painful, but my boyfriend really loves getting a massage every now and then to relax and loosen up, which translates to me getting a massage as well. 

As a Christmas (and late birthday) gift, I booked us a couple's massage at I'm Onsen Spa - a new sento-style spa located in Makati. What made me choose this spa over the others I know are the inclusions in the package available.

I got us both a 60-min I'm Onsen Massage, which includes the use of their onsen bath, steam room, sauna, and tea lounge. The package also includes a buffet at their Bloom Restaurant. 

It is advisable (and highly encouraged) for you to arrive an hour prior to your booking for you to have time to enjoy their facilities, but this doesn't mean that you can't enjoy them after you have your massage. 

The entire spa has a total of 6 floors:

UG/F: SPA LOBBY



Upon arrival at the lobby, you will be given a tag similar to the ones they place around your wrist in amusement parks. This is also where they will explain most of what you need to know about your stay.

2/F: SWIMMING POOL, MERMAID BAR, WELLNESS SUITES, MALE & FEMALE LOCKER ROOMS

Swimming Pool
Yukata

Locker Key
You may then proceed to the second floor where you will be given a yukata (robe) and wearable key to your locker. The locker room is also where the onsen, steam room, sauna, and shower rooms are. You may also need to note that onsens are used completely naked (which I learned the awkward way). 

M1: FITNESS CENTER, VIP SUITES

M2: COUPLE'S SUITES, FOOT THERAPY ZONE, RELAXING LOUNGE, TEA LOUNGE
You are expected to be at this floor 5-10 minutes before your massage. It's where the tea lounge is, where you can indulge in the teas they have available. This is also where your masseuse will pick you up for your massage, and drop you off after. We spent a good 15 minutes here after our massage. You must experience relaxing on their recliner chairs. After all, it's free 😉

3/F: SPA TREATMENT PODS, EXECUTIVE SUITES, AKASURI SCRUB SUITES
This is where the magic happens. We were brought to a couple's pod where we had our massage. Good thing the pod was really dim (and that my partner was already on his massage table, facing down lol). Needless to say, I had a really good time. The spa's full body massage was an incredibly relaxing experience, and it's one of the best treatments I've ever spent for myself. 

4F: BLOOM RESTAURANT
We finished our massage a few minutes before 3pm, so we had no choice but to go for the hot pot buffet (see schedule below). Honestly, I would suggest that you make it to their other buffet schedules (and not the hot pot), since the hot pot wasn't that great. I made a separate review for the whole buffet, click here.

Book your getaway now!
