Alabang: Your Top Self-Care Destination South of Manila

by Trina Ante

Alabang isn’t just home to malls, restaurants, and fancy neighborhoods—it’s also where the best clinics, spas, salons, fitness centers, and hotels south of the metro converge.

Coupled with its laid-back atmosphere, Alabang’s vast array of places to primp and pamper yourself in make it a top spot for practicing self-care and indulging in some much-needed me time.

1. Hand and Foot Spa

No matter how hectic life gets, your hands and feet deserve some TLC. Keep your tips and toes in tip-top shape at Nailaholics Nail Salon and Spa inside Ayala Southpark Mall along National Road. This salon's beachy feel (try the foot spa package with seaweed wrap for more mermaid vibes!) is both calming and stimulating, and even offers vegan polish for those who prefer their mani-pedis cruelty-free and non-toxic.

Indulge in mani-pedi pampering when you buy Nailaholics Nail Salon & Spa exclusives.

2. Facial and Skin Treatments

Whatever you’re looking for—from simple facials and peels to anti-aging injections, beauty drips, skin whitening, and acne scar removal sessions—you’ll easily find a treatment center that’s right for you here. Two of the best skincare establishments in Alabang to book an appointment with are CocktailsMD Wellness Lounge and Skin & Body by MEDICard.

Celebrate the skin you're in and avail these treatments from CocktailsMD Wellness Lounge and Skin & Body by MEDICard at exclusive rates.

3. Health and Fitness

Hotels are great for the plush beds and hearty buffet breakfasts, but have you ever considered making the most of your stay by working out in a hotel gym? Fitness buffs will love sweating it out with a gym membership program (valid for six months) at Acacia Hotel Manila, or exercising at the top-notch gym of Crimson Hotel Filinvest City. Can’t bring yourself to lift weights or do cardio while on your staycation? Do your health a favor with immunity boosting drips at CocktailsMD Wellness Lounge.

Stay fit and healthy with exclusives from Acacia Hotel Manila and CocktailsMD Wellness Lounge.

4. Workout Fuel

Of course, the basic need to relax and unwind shouldn’t be ignored—and what better way to enjoy your downtime than indulging in good food in a posh setting? At Crimson Hotel Filinvest City's Cafe 8, you can take your pick from several buffets: breakfast, Sunday brunch, lunch, or dinner. Enjoy servings of coffee, tea, or wine with your afternoon snacks at the Lobby Lounge, and hang out at the Deck Bar for some cocktails after a quick swim.

Make sure you're energized enough for a workout and avail of Crimson Hotel's exclusives.

5. Rejuvenating Body Therapy

The laid-back Alabang locals are the best clients for spas—they love a great, stress-relieving massage! There are many spa places in the city, but hotel spas like Acacia Hotel Manila’s Lurra Wellness Spa will exceed your expectations; get a luxurious whole body massage for yourself or with your significant other, and feel all your stress melt away. For more specialized needs, head to a treatment center that addresses more intense conditions due to misalignment and overexertion. A must-try is Karada at Westgate Alabang, with Japan-patented services and the best Japanese-trained therapists.

Get relaxing rubdowns and treatments at exclusive discounts from Acacia Hotel Manila and Karada.

6. Hair Makeover

If you’re bored of your current hairstyle, a cut + color + treatment package at an Alabang salon such as Acqua Salon (under Jesi Mendez Salon management) is highly recommended. Be ready to step out of the salon with more confidence and positive vibes, and expect to turn heads wherever you go.

7. Clean Eats

Sometimes, self-care is as simple as treating your body right. A healthy diet results in better skin, body, hair, nails, and even disposition. To further enhance the positive benefits of going to a fitness, beauty, or wellness center on a regular basis, stick to a recovery meal plan. Give your body the nutrition it deserves with the Fuel Aid Meal Plan by Freshfuel's healthy, tasty, customizable meals, which are available for delivery anywhere in Alabang.

Healthy eating doesn't have to be so costly thanks to this Freshfuel exclusive.
