Nurture Spa didn't just renovate their place with new amenities, facilities and services. They have not only improved their menu of food with Josiah's Catering,Tanglad Bistro for delicious spa cuisine, Institute of Natural Healing under Dr. Sam Dizon for its alternative and complimentary medicine programs, Healthway Clinics for its Executive Check up Programs and Brahma Kumaris for meditation and lifestyle counseling. They have also been named recently as one of the top one of the 28 Most Relaxing Spas in Asia by CNN Go and one of the Top Seven Spas of the Philippines by Asia Spa Magazine, a Hongkong-based luxury magazine. And they pay the blessings forward by not just offering their guests royale treatment and services, but a truly impeccable pragmatic experience of healing and rejuvenation.
During the global downturn last year, Nurture Spa underwent expansion to prepare itself to meet the demands of the international market and become an active player in medical and wellness tourism in the country. Nurture Spa Village today offers a new range of facilities and services to its guests: wider grounds, de luxe rooms, a swimming pool, an events pavilion and international facial and spa brands BIODROGA and ALGOTHERM to provide a higher level of service to its clientele.
With its philosophy to provide wellness in Body, Mind and Spirit, Nurture Spa partnered with experts to enhance its services: Tanglad Bistro for delicious spa cuisine, Institute of Natural Healing under Dr. Sam Dizon for its alternative and complimentary medicine programs, Healthway Clinics for its Executive Check up Programs and Brahma Kumaris for meditation and lifestyle counseling.
Nurture Spa continues to be proudly Filipino with a spa menu featuring favorites like its signature massage “Aruga” and its popular “Magsing-irog massage”, its unique “Nilaib” massage -a Filipino version of the Hot Stone Massage, its staff uniforms and linens made of “Abel” or hand-woven Ilocano fabric and its “Ulogs” – century old huts from Banaue converted into cozy and comfortable accommodations.
Driven by a strong sense of Corporate Social Responsibility, Nurture Spa hires its therapists from the local communities and trains them for a minimum of 2 months to the highest standards by internationally licensed trainers. Nurture Spa staff are taught and encouraged to adapt a wellness lifestyle in order to lead healthier and happier lives. I have personally experienced how the staff commends the owners and their good deeds to help the community.
Nurture Spa’s AMUIN massage oils and amenities are made of the finest quality therapeutic essential oils. Whenever possible, essential oils are sourced from local suppliers, like lemongrass which comes from Bacolod. Part of the sales of Amuin are used to improve the lives of essential oil producing communities.
