To love life one must enjoy life. So, here is my first post about enjoying life =)Pampering oneself is one way of enjoying life and at the same time giving your body a time to relax and unwind and for an hour or two be free from all of the cares and worries. =)

To quote what I have read from the paper, their piece about the place =)

The Visayan term alibyo, which means relief or alleviate, will take on a bigger meaning in a few days. A new boutique spa will open on Sunday, Nov. 18, at the second floor of the i2 building at the Asiatown IT Park. And you guessed it right—it’s called Alibyo.

Proprietor Johnie Lim and his wife Flor (they own the franchise of Body and Sole) say that the spa specializes in traditional Filipino hilot, which is currently being promoted by the Dept. of Tourism itself. Why not? If Thailand has its Thai massage, why can’t the Philippines have its hilot as a kind of massage?

So what differentiates Alibyo from the other massage spas in the metropolis, including Body and Sole? It is very Filipino. Better still, check it out.

My Review

Hubby and I went to Holiday for some foot massage last December 12, 2007, because we also wanted to avail of their buy 1 take 1 promo. alas, they already had their last call. So we racked our brains for some ideas and we thought of ALIBYO. this is a newly opened spa located at I2. I think this opened just last November. Off we went to try their services.
We availed of their 2 hour massage. Upon entering the Spa the front desk was all smiles already, Gives a very good first impression. He was also very knowledgeable about the services they offer. He also gave some suggestions on what is good. The spa is also quite different from the other spas, it is well lighted with very old and rustic setting(like you are being transported to the old era). The seats are made out of wood, the table is inlaid with raffia mat. the attendants wear Spanish era type of clothes(filipiniana). air-conditioning is just the right temp, not too hot and not to cold. The attendants are also very accommodating, they are all smiles. I did not see any of them loitering the reception area. When we came out after the massage and they saw us, they immediately vacated the reception area.

    Let me just share with you an incident that happened to me in Alibyo Boutique Spa in I2 last night.

    Went to the spa after work, around 1015pm to have a massage, placed my bag in their locker. After the 2 hour massage, I got my bag to pay and found out that I lost 4K (four thousand pesos), I am 101% sure that someone from their spa took the money from my wallet. There were conflicting statements coming from their therapist, cashier and manager so I decided to call the police to investigate. After 5 hours of onsite (Alibyo) investigation, I went to to the Police Station to file a formal complaint and a police report. The police also asked money from me to “speed up” the process. The owner of the spa didnt even apologize and was not concerned at all.

    It is unfortunate if you had that experience. Even though I haven’t heard of it, I feel sorry for you. How is the case going?

    Anyhow, it’s still a great place, we go there at least 1-2x a month. Their style may not be everyone’s cup of tea… but we like it “brutal”.
