Sofitel Philippine Plaza Manila isn’t just about the magnificent view of Manila Bay.
My husband and I were just lucky to be able to try out what Sofitel has to offer. Being hands-on parents to our 2 kids plus our little teacup Pomeranian, Max, we both need time to destress and have ourselves pampered once in a while. I also need to look good (and smell good) for the hubby all the time! Right, Chuckie? After all, you are the one who convinced me to work my ass off at the gym 3 times a week, the same way I’m the reason why you started having facials at least once a month! Lol.
So, let’s get to it!
Yup, we never let any work-out opportunity pass even when we’re on vacation! With all the eating with a little drinking going on during our staycation.We woke up at 6:30AM to work-out at So Fit. This is actually the best time to hit the gym since the facility opens at 6AM. The place was still empty when we arrived. Great!
Located on the 2nd level of Le Spa, So Fit has practiclly everything you will need with fitness experts to ready assist you.
Here’s a video of us taking turns using the Kinesis Machine.
Membership packages are available to meet your requirement.
So Fit is located at the 2nd Floor of Le Spa and is open daily from 6AM to 12MN.

The treatments we had were all non-surgical. The husband had Resolift for the face and Ultralipo for the tummy area. While I had Resolift for both the face and tummy. Resolift on the face is for contouring while when done on the tummy area, it provides tightening. I was supposed to have Ultralipo as well – to breakdown the fats. But because my “monthly” visitor was currently… ummm… “visiting”, they changed it to Resolift instead. So, it was just the husband who was able to try the Ultralipo treatment. *sigh* Maybe next time.
For this particular procedure, the patient must remove all jewelry and any metal object including brassiere with under wire. In case you have metal implants, you must inform the attendant or the doctor to avoid complications.
It was absolutely wonderful! I was rejuvenated! I felt younger, sexier, prettier and well… amazingly beautiful! Haha!
I wouldn’t mind going back again!
Oh, and did you know, Vietura has a secret exit if you don’t want others to see how you look after your treatment?This hallway will lead you straight out of the facility! Great idea, Vietura! You really know how to deal with all your patients’ concerns even before we realize what we need. Good job!
Vietura is located at the Plaza Level with a separate entrance from the south parking. Open from 9AM TO 10PM Mondays to Saturdays and 9AM to 7PM on Sundays.
Our couples spa session at Le Spa was scheduled during our 2nd night at Jardin D’Eden. Have you already been to this part of Sofitel Manila before? If you haven’t yet, read on!
After changing to our slippers, we were led upstairs to our private spa room – Jardin D’Eden.
And this is what Jardin D’Eden looks like.Photo courtesy of Chuckie.
The door on your right opens to your own private veranda. When I opened the door, it immediately took my breath away!The private veranda had a stunning view of the lagoon-shaped pool and the breathtaking view of the sunset by Manila Bay! (Photo courtesy of Chuckie.)
After about an hour after our pre-spa rituals, our friendly therapists came in to start the actual massage.
Our treatment was called “slimming massage + rejuvenating massage with Thèmae Facial Glow”. This session lasted for an hour. It definitely relieved me from all the stress brought about by a whole week of tiresome events and from being a full time homemaker.
What short time we had at Le Spa was undoubtedly fantastic and memorable! My husband and I had the time of our lives! You should try it, too!
Le Spa is located at the Plaza Level and opens from 8AM to 12MN daily. Last treatment service is at 11PM.
