Complete the g.spa experience? ✓ Check!
I became aware of g.spa last year because of a video they put out promoting a 24-hour spa experience for $38/pax. That steal is gone but they’re currently having a 3-for-2 promo till the end of World Cup (15 July 2018) which equates to $45.333333333/pax. The usual rate is $68/pax which is still quite worth it considering you get to use their facilities and enjoy the free-flow food.
The consumer experience is well-thought-of — everything is provided! They have robes, disposable innerwear (yes, even bras), lockers, shower, shampoo, conditioner, shower gel, towels, hairdryers, toothpaste and toothbrushes. If you’re out and you need a place to freshen up or crash and stuff yourself silly with food, this is the place to hang. It’s like a mini Club Med!
Facilities for use (gender-specific):
- Steam room (men only)
- Sauna room (men & women)
- Hot pool (aka jacuzzi) [men & women]
- Cold pool
- Relaxation lounge (common area)
Number of times we ate: 4
(Dinner, supper, breakfast, lunch)
Number of movies watched: 3
(Megan Leavey, The Last Stand, 21 Jump Street)
Number of times we visited the jacuzzi/steam room: 2
(Well, we dipped in and out many times in one visit)
WORD OF CAUTION: If you intend to stay over, bring earplugs/tune into your music when you sleep. You might encounter some snorers who will disturb the peace unless you are a snorer yourself!!! There aren’t any proper beds (just reclining chairs) so be prepared to not sleep well unless you’re a deep sleeper. We were so lucky to enjoy a snoring symphony in the wee hours of the morning.
A spa’s supposed to make you feel refreshed and recharged, right? My friends and I were exhausted from the whole experience — solely from the lack of sleep. We did enjoy dipping in the jacuzzi periodically, torturing ourselves in the steam room, stuffing our faces with endless food and completing the lazy routine with a movie.
All in all, great experience. But I don’t think I’ll be returning anytime soon… I guess age really does catch up with you. I’d rather be sleeping in my own bed. Definitely recommend everyone to check it out at least once.
TL;DR: Eat, watch movie, jacuzzi, steam room, nap, repeat at g.spa.
