Here’s an update to a previous post on massage places. I was looking for another place to get a massage, but couldn’t bring myself to try Philosophy Spa just yet — no budget! So a friend of mine suggested I try this new place right beside Basti’s Brew. Perfect!
HairZone Salon & Spa was a pleasant surprise. I knew that the next-door shop was renovating, but I wasn’t expecting what I saw: to their salon, they’ve now added a well-appointed spa! The place looks really cozy and pleasant. It’s not big, in fact, it’s bordering on cramped. But the way they arranged the furniture, the spa gives an impression of comfort.
The massage itself? It was OK. No major complaints. I was told that the massage therapists are all new and had just finished a one-month training program. So the massage was pretty good, considering. I had a full-body Swedish-Shiatsu combination. For only P300!
They also offer aromatherapy, body scrubs and body wraps (wonder what that is…). All at very reasonable rates.
The full-body massage rate includes use of their shower and sauna. They only have one shower stall, though (and another for the women). The saunas can fit only one person each, two if you don’t mind the squeeze.
The customer service was not bad. I could hear some staff chattering while I was getting my massage, though. I told the manager about it — hopefully they’ll do something about it.
HairZone is located at the ground floor of Victoria Plaza Mall, J.P. Laurel Ave., Davao City. Their phone number: 305-3513. They’re open from 10am to 12 midnight (so they’ll accept clients only up to 11pm, I was told). Here are some photos of the place.
