Quick Getaway: Nurture Wellness Village Tagaytay

Craving for a quick (insert “healthy”) getaway? Try the Nurture Wellness Village in Tagaytay just a 1-2 hour drive from the busy streets of Manila.

I’m not really a die-hard health buff. I eat fatty and oily food and lots of sweets but because of my hyperacidity and because I refuse to take medications I try to make sure I live and eat well. Nurture Wellness is a good place to satisfy this!

FOOD

Lunch: Salad which we picked from the garden. They even taught us how to do it! We also ate lugaw (porridge) and fish!

Snack: Chicken pesto sandwich and leche flan. Plus we also got lessons on how to make our own fresh pressed juices!

Dinner: We ate Bulalo, Crispy Tawilis, Ensaladang Talong, and Turon for dessert! Bulalo is a light colored soup made by cooking beef shanks and marrow bones. It was perfect for a very cold night. I was hungry I didn’t take a photo haha!

ACCOMODATION

The room that we got was Ifugao-inspired, overlooking the trees and the families glamping outside! Yes, they offer glamping where you can have your own bonfire and roast your marshmallows.

FACILITIES and SERVICES

Spa and Massage to relax you after a day’s work where you can hear the wind and the birds (and not ambient music). I fell asleep even though I didn’t want to!

A doctor/nurse can also check you using a traditional Chinese technique. It will measure your energy and see if you are balanced or not. The results will help them tell you how you can improve your overall wellness. My results were alarming,I didn’t know I had to improve on a lot of things.

You can also do Tai-Chi, join their walking tour, or swim!

They have these stone path (I forgot what it is called) that will massage your feet. The goal is to reach YINYANG. It only looks easy but it’s not! You actually need to focus to finish it.

An overnight stay felt like I had a good 3day vacation!

Thank you Mae and Nurture Wellness Village for the treat!

P.S

My excuse for this trip? I needed a retreat!
