Iloilo used to have a handful of spa salons but the landscape has changed dramatically in recent years. There are now chains of spa and numerous individual brands had sprout up in the metropolis. These centers are filled with people – local executives, travelers, wellness buffs, and laidback Ilonggos.
The regional tourism office recognized that the wellness sector is an expanding industry of the local economy and wellness tourism is budding. Yet despite of impressive growth, Iloilo is eager for more.
The desire for more selection is fulfilled with the addition of the Leaf Healing Spa which opened at the Grid within the bling community around Ayala, overlooking the Muscovado Chimney Rotonda – a shared historical landmark in front of the Seda Hotel at the Atria – one of the three areas which formed Iloilo City’s business triangle.
The entry of the Leaf is testament of Iloilo City’s blooming wellness tourism considering that the city has positioned to become a prime MICE (Meetings, Incentives, Conventions and Exhibitions) destination in the country.
The newly-established Leaf is owned by the couple Jhane Golez and Gerry Almonte. It carries a purpose of offering a distinct quality of services from the rest of the existing brands – good location, spacious rooms, silent ambiance and a trained staff who can perform a combination of services.
The Leaf Healing Spa also intends to address the growing number of wellness aficionados in the city. It is an alternative to the steadily increasing number of spa and wellness salons in the urban center.
“We want to offer genuine relaxation services and we named it the Leaf because it carries nature, an element which is relaxing by itself,” intoned Jhane Golez-Almonte.
The interior and amenities of Leaf Healing Spa carries a dominant earthly shade of green. Its modern minimalist design accentuated by bamboos and embellished with back-lighted ornate leaf wood carvings offers an elegant ambiance and sets a gentle mood for relaxation.
While Leaf is nested within the upscale business district, its body and foot therapy services were designed to be affordable, especially for business and leisure travelers, and for the cost-sensitive Ilonggo market.
“We are hoping that we will be able to provide the the type of service that customers are looking for in a spa, especially visitors and guests to the city,” added Golez-Almonte.
Sooner than later, you will find the Leaf near your neighborhood for they eye to expand close to where the customers needed them most.
