The Royal Lake Spa in Timog Avenue, Quezon City

Thursday, December 05, 2013

I've only been to one Spa (no matter how lame that sounds it is true) and it's a bit far from where I live. It's not too easy to go to but I go there for the food, the ambiance and the people. 

I'm a guy who needs options and I was so lucky to have been invited to this new place in the Tomas Morato - Timog area called Royal Lake Spa. It's beside the Petron Station and rotunda where the Boyscouts Statues are. This was previously known as the CITYLIFESTYLE Building.

This is my neighborhood and I can walk from my house to here in just a couple of minutes.  I'm not a fan of crowds and a bit allergic to stares and I must say this experience was new to me so I gave it a shot. 🐵

This place is also managed by the same people who run Wensha Spa in Antipolo; and the thing is, this place is only three months old. This was a gentleman's bar before but they've reconstructed and converted it into an All in One Family Entertainment place right in the heart of Quezon City.

The ground floor houses a full bar. They serve a la carte local and international beer, liquors and mixes to satisfy their very discriminating clientele who just wants to have a good time. They have bucket packages though that are surprisingly affordable. Bands can play on this joint and functions (on some occasions) can be accommodated to party on this spacious entertainment area specifically designed for those who want a drink or two before going through the rest of the floors. Believe me, there's more!

Upon checkin in, you'll be given slippers and a faux jade/crystal bracelet which you'll use while inside the building. The Second Floor houses the Male and Female locker room situated on separate sides of the floor. Your bracelet actually serves as your keys which works much like a perimeter RF card so you can open and close your lockers while you're there. You have to be careful though because if you lose it, it'll cost a lot because it's high tech. I didn't take photos of the wet and dry Sauna also the Jacuzzi because there were people on them at the time I arrived. They've got a lot of shower stations too so you can rinse off after going around this place. Men and women are on separate ones, quite conducive to a more wholesome experience.

The third floor is nice. You can pamper yourself with Manicure, Pedicure, Foot Spa services on lines of chairs stretching from end to end. This floor also has the dining area where the buffet is. I didn't get to eat dinner so I kinda ate a lot. For the price you pay on the services, KTV (which you'll see later) plus this buffet... it is definitely a STEAL!

They also have a smoking area for those who do. The dining area is also huge, you won't be crowding too much.

The hotpot was awesome. Just put all the ingredients in a bowl and give it to this guy right here and he'll prepare it for you. Tell them your locker number and they'll find you on the dining area. The broth is quite nice. They also have other items on the buffet like salads, rice and viands that you'll love - and that comes with the package too. It's like the perfect accompaniment for your spa experience, but we're not done yet!

When we reached the 4th floor, I realized I did something wrong. I ate first remember? So it was a little uncomfortable to get massaged after that. I strongly suggest you do this relaxing number first before you do eat a ton. I must say, they only said that they'll do Swedish and Shiatsu massage but actually they do a combination of these plus Thai plus hilot. It was SOOOOO GOOD. The guy beside my massage table was already sleeping after a few minutes. I was stretched in areas I don't even know existed haha. I highly recommend you do not leave this place unless you get this done. You need it and deserve to be pampered.

The Fifth Floor houses the Female Massage Rooms. Men are unfortunately not allowed here for obvious reasons. =( haha. This area is better because they are non communal, meaning they have separate rooms. You are also going to be asked if you prefer a male or female masseur on these services. Tipping is not forced but in normal circumstances it is recommended as courtesy (to be paid later upon checking out).

The 6th Floor's got the KTV rooms in it. It's fit for groups and families who want to spend time singing along the latest tunes this side of town. What's even great is that they have free drinks available on this joint so just ask around which ones are included on your package. All these for the promo price of P780.00 ++. You can't find a deal this good anywhere in this district. This is the Timog-Morato area after all and other Spa's probably cost an arm and a leg here without food. Now if that isn't enough reason to try out Royal Lake Spa with your friends and family, I don't know what will.

For your information this place is OPEN 24/7. If you're like me who stays in the office too much and gets lots of stress... Royal Lake Spa is the answer to your dreams. Go there, relax, get a massage, eat and enjoy the one stop shop for all your entertainment and spa service needs.

Royal Lake Spa is located at #60 Timog Ave. cor., Tomas Morato, Brgy. Laging Handa 1100 Quezon City, Philippines. You can call them at (02) 376-3184/376-3972 / 3763132 or 6641293.
