2 thumbs up for Toccare Spa

Tuesday, October 23, 2012

So, there’s birthday treat 1, 2 and 3. I’ve blogged about (surprise) birthday treat 3 and this is birthday treat 2. Haha Yes, I've finally blogged about the first one!

I first stepped onto the vicinity of Toccare Spa last June for Kabbie’s bridal shower. It was organized by her friends so I didn’t know anything about the place. I’m not a big spa or massage person so it really isn’t my department. I didn’t have a lot of expectations going there. 

We used the foot spa room for the bridal sparty. The package we got was for 10 people and consisted of the following:
8 treatments with choice of green tea foot spa or foot massage
Coco cream souffle body treatments for the Bride
Filipino Hilot for the Maid of Honor
Bridal fruits in blooms arrangements
Bridal shower giveaways for guest
2 bridal games by the spa
Exclusive use of the foot spa lounge for 3hours.
Use of steam bath, dry sauna, Jacuzzi and experience shower
Complimentary drinks
Balloons (for set-up/decor)

The whole package was for P9,500. We paid corkage for the pica-pica and wine we brought in. The whole evening was fantastic; we all felt refreshed and pampered after the party.

The non-spa person in me enjoyed the experience so much that when I read about Toccare’s Chocolate Raspberry Trouffle body wrap treatment and I wanted to have it. In all honesty, I wanted to experience a chocolate body scrub for this year’s birthday. However at P3150 a session, it was too costly for something I don’t normal love. When I saw a deal for a treatment and massage at Toccare Spa for P790 from Deal Grocer, I got myself a coupon! Giddy silly me thought the world conspired to grant my birthday wish. I reread the coupon I bought and it was NOT for the Chocolate Raspberry Trouffle but for the Coco Cream Souffle instead. Mwahahahahahaha

I decided to go through with it since I was happy with my previous Toccare experience. My cousin Paola also bought a voucher so we decided to try it together. For P790 (instead of P2700++) we got:
60 minute body scrub
60 minute body massage
Use of facilities like steam, sauna, Jacuzzi, shower and locker room.  

We booked an appointment for a Saturday and it was perfect timing after an extremely busy work week. We were offered a welcome drink (ice tea, coffee, hot tea or water) while we enjoyed the jacuzzi. We were then ushered to the treatment room for our body scrub. The room was perfect for us because it could accommodate 2 people only. You can choose between a salt or a cream scrub for your treatment. The salt scrub is recommended for first timers while the cream scrub is recommended for people who have experienced it before. Our last treatment was the classic massage at the massage room which can accommodate 6 people. Even though we weren’t the only ones in the room, it still felt comfortable.

I don’t have a lot of photos but I do have good words about the spa. Let’s start with the facilities. All the areas we went to were spotless and felt fresh. I was never grossed out by anything in the Spa. The spa provides you with the essentials like a proper robe, shorts, towel, slippers and even a plastic bag for your swimsuit. There’s even a blow dryer in the women’s locker room.

Toccare Spa’s ambiance is consistently calming. The music, scent and even interior design all contribute to the service you are about to encounter.

Another great thing about them is their service. I felt so spoiled and taken care of the whole time I had my treatment. From the moment you come in until the service ends, you are pampered. When we entered the locker and shower room, an attendant was present to assist us. The whole experience was stress free. The therapists treat you with kindness and I could really feel that they gave a premium to respecting our privacy.

I understand why people splurge on spas and massages. As they say, you get what you pay for and at Toccare Spa isn’t your money is worth it.

I loved my birthday treat 2! =)
