Soneva Spa

Post Content


Ever since college I’m drawn to the idea of pampering myself through retail therapy, having a manicure and pedicure or the best of them all — a full body massage. Although I haven’t read much about the health benefits it give, I know for a fact that after a rough day at work (or school), it helps relax the muscle tension esp on my shoulders and my whole mind, body and soul.

There can never be “too much spa” or “too much massage” in my world. I, personally, like most of us I think, live a very hectic lifestyle to say the least. An offer to have a spa massage is a welcome change in my very busy, fast-paced and highly stressful life. That’s where Soneva Spa comes in!

Panghimagas is a Tagalog word for dessert. A term that is perfectly suited to call the sweet treats after a full delicious meal. To cap off our dining experience at St. Nicholas, we tried Civet coffee over these delightful sweets.

I had the privilege to visit a newly-opened dining place in Mandaluyong’s which offers sweet and savory dishes at a very affordable price, St. Nicholas. It was a nice and complete dining experience as the chef and restaurateur, Nick Pelaez, shared the history behind his restaurant, the inspiration behind its eclectic ambiance and the delectable dishes served generously to us.

St. Nicholas started as a catering service for 10 years before they gave in to customers’ demand to make it into a restaurant which opened just last April which they can visit anytime they crave for good food, good service at a good rate.
