Cebu Part 14
Michael Taylor’s Cebuano Adventure is winding down. Before returning to Hong Kong, he finds total relaxation at Mogambo Springs, the Spa at the Plantation Bay Resort & Spa in Cebu.
It is late, and I am tired. When I arrive at Mogambo Springs, the Spa at Plantation Bay, I am given the choice between Swedish (which is described as “relaxing”) and Japanese Shiatsu (which is described as “energizing”).
I opt for Swedish, and I think I’ve made the right choice. Moments after my treatment begins, I am sound asleep. So I really can’t comment on the massage except to say that when I awake, I feel very relaxed.
There is still time to enjoy the facilities before retiring back to my room.
Everything is natural – from the wood to the bamboo to the stone. There is tropical foliage. There are numerous pools – some with warm water, others with cool water.
There is a sauna, a steam room, and an outdoor shower that shoots water at you from all sides. There are comfortable lounge chairs to relax in before or following your treatment.
When I return the following night for a pool massage, I make sure to arrive 30 minutes early so that I can take full advantage of the facilities before my restful treatment begins.
Mogambo Springs originally had an African theme, but it has undergone a complete makeover. It now has a tranquil Japanese ambience, and you can feel yourself starting to relax the moment you enter the spacious, open air surroundings.
