A trip to Wawa Dam

I promise myself to travel more often this year and go to places I've never been before at least once a month. This January, I tried to roam around Intramuros as a start but I wasn't able to do it because when I reached Central terminal, there were 3 guys following me and I got scared and backed out. :)) But my hard-headed, adventurous self said that I'll try again next month. Then suddenly, I thought of asking Tom, a friend of mine, if he could come with me to Wawa Dam and luckily he's willing to.

How we got there: From EDSA taft, we rode a bus going to Cubao and we took off in front of the Farmer's Plaza Cubao. We rode an FX going to Montalban (50 pesos) and told them to drop us wherever there is a jeepney going to Wawa Dam, but when we got there, we rode a tricycle instead (30 pesos).

This is what Wawa Dam looks like:

Feeling the waters haha!

This place is a nice place if you want to travel on the spot because you want to think about your life haha! There are no fees - except for touring and trekking fees. :) I like this place!

Hydrotherapy-ing at Ace Water Spa

 I am longing for a massage especially things are getting stressful these days so my family and I went to Ace Water Spa Pasig Branch. 
Lapping Pool
Obviously, cameras are not allowed inside the water areas so let me just state it for you.

These are the facilities inside the spa center:
  • Parking - Valet options
  • Swim shop
  • Reception area
  • Spacious Locker rooms
  • Organized shoe racks
  • Changing Area (for women)
  • Shower area
  • 25m; 5 lanes lapping pool
  • Hydrotherapy spa area
    • Waterfalls
    • Lazy River
    • 25 massage systems
  • Resting area
  • 4 Hot Herbal Pools
  • Steam
  • Sauna
  • Floor Fountain
  • Restaurant - Ace Coffee Lounge
  • Skygarden
 My favorite is the 4 hot herbal pools slash jacuzzis. Each pool has a different temperature depending on your heat tolerance. This one was very soothing and relaxing, followed by a quick dip in the cold water pool.
This is the very cozy restaurant/coffee lounge
Tati indulging her sweet yummy treat!

 After the 4 hour stay in the waters, we ate at the Ace Restaurant. It was served in buffet and it's around 600 pesos per person. It was worth it because the food was really delicious and limitless. :)) They serve different kinds of cuisines (japanese, italian, etc.) Desserts are unlimited too! ♥
Look at those happy satisfied faces. :D

Ace Water Spa redefines its service by letting you use all its facilities for four (4) hours by paying only P550.00/adult and P250.00/kid (4 ft. & below). (Source: Ace Water Spa). This is one satisfying experience and an unusual massage/spa treatment so you better pack those swimsuits now. :)
