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 make it a top spot for practicing self-care and indulging in some much-needed me time.

1. Manicure 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 Coco Nail Studio. This salon's pretty interiors are both calming and stimulating, and they offer a wide range of polish from top-notch brands such as OPI, Orly, Zoya, and Happy Skin.

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 Skin & Body by MEDICard and CocktailsMD Wellness Lounge at exclusive rates.

Nothing makes you feel more like your best self than having soft, supple skin. A signature facial in an Alabang salon such as Everyday Eyebrows will give you that coveted, healthy glow and a lit-from-within radiance. Be ready to step out of the salon with more confidence and positive vibes, and expect to turn heads wherever you go.

Treat your skin to Everyday Eyebrows' offers at the best prices!

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 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 an Express Beauty Drip from CocktailsMD Wellness Lounge, which optimizes liver function and speeds up healing from viral illnesses.

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 and allow all your stress to 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.
