Nuat Thai Tomas Morato: Make Your Own Spa Experience

Tuesday, July 31, 2012
As a daily commuter, I've always found myself tired after a long day. My work may not involve strenuous activities and grueling manual labor, but there's nothing wrong with unwinding and having my weary body pampered once in a while. So a few weeks ago, after eating out with my friends at Octoboy, off we went to Nuat Thai Tomas Morato.
Nuat Thai Tomas Morato

Although there has been a lot of Nuat Thai branches sprouting in the Metro, I'm glad that my first Nuat Thai experience was in Tomas Morato. Located at corner Scout Limbaga Street, the spa sits two floors in the same building as Congo Grille. And since we've scheduled our visit on a Saturday, the ground floor area which has a traditional Thai-inspired interior was already fully occupied when we walked in. I didn't mind it though as the second floor was more of my liking, cozy and elegant with modern Thai décor.

Being The Purple Doll, you can already infer my love for the color purple. And as we walked in to Nuat Thai Tomas Morato's second floor, I can't help but silently squeal in delight as its space is drenched in hues of purple, white and silver. I also grew fond of the crystal Thai Buddha piece, as well as the sophisticated yet trendy wired chandelier in the lobby cum waiting area. And since we're very curious souls, we checked out the space before deciding what services to try. Of course, quietly as not to disturb other guests.

Nuat Thai Tomas Morato Hallway Nuat Thai Hallway

The walkways at Nuat Thai Tomas Morato are filled with stones and pebbles with big white tiles. And with subtle and ambient lighting, as well as modern Zen-inspired design, I truly felt the calmness and serenity even with just walking in the hallways.

Nuat Thai Swedish Bed
Across and along the hallways are rooms for individuals as well as couples. Most of these rooms have flat beds for Nuat Thai's famous Thai massage which involves a lot of stretching. However, there are also Swedish beds for guests availing of the Swedish massage and body scrub. Each room has a curtain door for privacy, and as I've noticed, everything was clean and spotless.

Although this may seem quite trivial, I actually liked the Thai patterns printed on some of their beds.

Another thing that probably separates Nuat Thai Tomas Morato from other branches is the availability of salon and lazy boy chairs for their hand, foot and nail services.

After a quick tour of the massage and spa area, we returned to the lobby to decide what services to try. Although I have never tried any Nuat Thai branches in the past, I've heard that they offer one of the most inexpensive massage rates in the Metro. And yes, it's true.

We were told that Nuat Thai only offers massages. However, to deviate from the usual, Nuat Thai Tomas Morato has decided to provide more -- hand, foot and body rituals, as well as facials, paraffin, whitening treatments and manicure and pedicure. You'd think that with all these massage and spa services, it would make choosing easier. But apparently, it makes it even harder. Fortunately, Nuat Thai Tomas Morato has recently offered the Make Your Own Spa Experience promo packages.

Nuat Thai Tomas Morato Make Your Own Spa Experience

I'm not much of a spa bum, but with packages like these, how can I say no? For a choice of P700 or P1,150, we can already experience three of Nuat Thai Tomas Morato's services! And although I honestly wanted to avail of the P1,150 package, I just settled for the other one since I was still suffering from menstrual cramps that day.

Scents

To help us decide what specific services we'd like to incorporate in our package choices, we were also given the chance to smell their scrubs: Asian Espresso, Ultra Hydrating Coco Milk, Royal Contour, Pomegranate, Youthful Lavender, Peanut Butter, Thai Lemongrass, Peppermint & Spearmint, Whitening Green Tea and Organic Thai Ginger.

My Nuat Thai Make Your Own Spa Experience

Both my friends Stacy and Berylle availed of the P1,150 package. On the other hand, I got the following services for P700 with P80 savings:
  • Pomegrate Dead Sea Salt Foot Ritual (P300)
  • 1 Hour Thai Foot Massage (P250)
  • Kleancolor Manicure and Pedicure (P230)

My ever-friendly and courteous attendant Ate Len, first had my feet soaked in soapy water. I was then brought to the Hand and Foot Therapy room for another feet-soaking session while I enjoy reading through various fashion and beauty magazines.

After a few minutes of soaking my walkers, the fun and pampering session for my tired feet finally started. (Please forgive my stubby feet for ruining this post, but I thought I should post photos to make my narration more interesting.)

Foot Ritual

Ate Len added on the pomegranate dead sea salt scrub and massaged it onto my feet, ankles and even a portion of my lower legs. After which, she applied a cooling marine dead sea mud masque and wrapped my legs and feet with plastic, before wrapping them again with hot damp towels. It's said that this is best in removing tough callouses.

Foot Scrub and Massage

After my feet were wrapped for about 20 minutes, I found my walkers soaked for yet another round. This time however, Ate Len applied a pomegranate spray on my feet leaving them fresh-smelling. When my foot ritual was over, I found my feet soft and clean with skin like a baby's. Truly, my callouses despite not being so tough, were now gone.

Then, we were already at my most anticipated part, the Thai foot massage. Ate Len was good in giving my feet relief from all the stresses and abuse I did with them. However, the side portions needed a harder and heavier push, so my attendant got a male therapist to step in upon my approval. It was the most relaxing hour I've had at Nuat Thai. My feet thoroughly enjoyed the massage, while Ate Len already started with my manicure.

I chose Kleancolor in Fashionista for my hands' nail polish, and it's just a really lovely olive shade of green. Actually, I thought the color would be more of an apple green hue, but I'm still very happy of how it turned out. Even after over 2 weeks since application, it's still very much intact and only had minor chip offs due to my inevitable clumsiness. My pedicure was also done very nicely, though I only asked for clear nail polish to be applied.

THE VERDICT

After having my own spa experience at Nuat Thai, I can say with conviction that I'll be returning for another pampering session. Ambiance is very cozy with a relaxing instrumental music in the background. The foot ritual, massage, manicure and pedicure services had my nod for approval. The therapists and attendants were all very friendly, easy to talk to, and definitely well-trained. And of course, all these good things also don't come with a hefty price tag. So definitely, a big yes for Nuat Thai Tomas Morato.

  9. OMG Please don't get me started on Thai food. Pad Thai, bagoong rice... I am forever craving for these! I remember visiting a Thai restaurant in Megamall (and I've totally forgotten the name of that resto) and I just LOVED their Thai food!

    Up to this day, I nag the boyfriend to take me there again. Haha. :)

  18. I love going to spas. or I must say, I love pampering myself. I do this almost every weekends. Its my time away from reality and busy world. Haha! I've tried Nua Thai's service when I was in Cebu for 3yrs (they're really popular in Cebu, btw) and I liked their service. Aside from the fact that they're open until 3am I guess.

  19. I swear, whoever is the owner of the one here in BF Homes should really look at these branches. The one here in BF is nowhere close to this one, and this is the second really great looking Nuat Thai Spa I've seen.

  21. Pampering is what I really lacked in life. I need to visit the spa at least once a month to treat myself but still I don't have find to do so and no budget too. Hehehe...

    Anyway, looked like you enjoyed your time. :)

    ReplyDelete
  22. it has a year since i last visited a spa, i enjoy the back and foot massage in spas, one of the ways to pamper myself and "me" time :)

    1. I took all the photos, except for the one where I was in it.. ^^ I think not all spas would allow picture taking. Make sure to ask first if pwede :)

  28. There's nothing like body massage with all those fragrances and pampering bling for relaxation! Great you had it. I understand how tiresome commuting can be.

    ReplyDelete
  29. I'm not sure it this relaxing haven is strictly for women only. Generally speaking, I so badly need a whole body massage. I've been complaining of lower back pain and etc. but I can't find one here in M.E. to do just that.

    ReplyDelete
  30. Ang sarap naman nito.. Eto ang diko magawa sa off ko.. Puro n lng ako tulog. lol...

    ReplyDelete
  31. ohh sumi! this branch is better than in libis when it comes to interiors. nuat thai is one of the most peaceful spa/massage place ive ever been. i wanna go back!

    ReplyDelete
  33. You are right, they have affordable services. The ambiance already exudes tranquility. I'll pay a visit sometime :-)

    ReplyDelete
  34. I had a full body massage right here at home and it took about 2 hours. Another blogger friend posted about her Nuat Thai experience from another branch and so I've been thinking about checking out this Morato branch because I live nearby. Thanks for sharing!

  35. That's a pretty good deal! Me wants spa!! :) Great nail color choice, never thought olive green can look so good for nails.

    ReplyDelete
  36. that will be the first thing I'll do when i go back home. My batchmate is employed in their branch in Greenhills and she has invited me over to try it out. I guess it would really be a great experience.

    ReplyDelete
  37. We've tried the Aromatherapy massage with herbal balls and foot massage at Nuat Thai Libis and loved it! Other Nuat Thai branches aren't as spacious and only offer basic massage services.

    ReplyDelete
  38. I am a spa person so for sure that this post catches my attention. I love the way the place was decorated. Clean and neat and so elegant. That package price is considered reasonable.

    ReplyDelete
  39. Hey Sumi, it's nice to see that their Tomas Morato branch has a lot more packages compared to the other Nuat Thai locations. Maybe DTM and I will try this next time :)

    ReplyDelete
  40. wow,i want to experience this too,its been a long time since i went to a spa

    ReplyDelete
  41. The place looks so inviting. I love how they pamper their customers. Their packages is worth the price too

    ReplyDelete
  42. hoping to have a relaxing day at this spa,badly needed it.

    ReplyDelete
  43. This place is cool! I think I knew this place before but I haven't tried their services yet! Hopefully I'll give myself a break to this relaxing spa! :)

    ReplyDelete
  44. Are all Nuat Thai branches have the same packages like the ones in Tomas Morato? Is so happen that I've been passing to three branches everyday and I wonder if they have the Pomegrate Dead Sea Salt Foot Ritual.. Thanks..

    ReplyDelete

    1. Hey Jen! It's unlikely that other Nuat Thai branches would have these packages. From what I know kasi, the Tomas Morato branch is a franchise and the packages were thought of the owners' :)

    1. Hi itsErvin, so sad to hear about that. Pero I'd have to say na totoo nga ata yan. Kasi about a year (or less) after this post, I returned again and didn't like my experience. Receptionist pa lang, parang wala ng keme sa guests :(
