A spa standout all-year round

OH YES, IT'S JOHNNY! - Johnny Litton - The Philippine Star

Besides the refreshing lagoon dips, impeccable accommodations, pulsating dinner shows, to-die-for croissants, and exceptional staff service at Plantation Bay Resort and Spa, first-time visitors never fail to share their experience at the world-class spa in Cebu named “Mogambo Springs.”  A surprising find in the Mactan Island resort designed like a colonial agricultural estate is the full-service spa built to resemble an 18th-century Tokugawa Japanese village but using native materials from floor to ceiling.  Four pools with built-in jacuzzis, pressurized needle showers, bubblers, and waterfalls provide massages that range from gentle to invigorating.  A guest can also opt for the Vichy shower, a hydro massage from a row of shower heads while lying down.  Plantation Bay general manager Efren Belarmino revealed that the picture-perfect Mogambo Springs pulls its own share of clients to the resort. For total body cleansing, Mogambo Springs also offers “Loving Life,” a modified detox program that focuses on eating the right food at the right time based on three body cycles.  A stay of four days and three nights is recommended for full results. For inquiries, call (63-32) 505-9800, e-mail [email protected] or visit their website at plantationbay.com. You may also visit their Manila sales office at Unit 318 McKinley Park Residences, 31st St. corner 3rd Avenue, Bonifacio Global City, Taguig. Call 844-5024 to 25 or by fax 844-5030.

A fabulous break for the Zonta ladies

The hardworking ladies of the Zonta Club of Manila I recently took a well-deserved break from the hustle and bustle of their various activities with a fun-filled party held at Minerva Tanseco’s well-appointed condominium. It was an evening of endless merry-making and non-stop laughter as the ladies enjoyed each other’s company over an endless buffet of their favorite dishes including a variety of juices enjoyed by the health-conscious group. Surely, genial hostess Minerva Tanseco knows how to turn a simple party into an enjoyable feast.
