IT’SAWHOLENEW­WAYOF unwinding and relaxing in Tomas Morato.

The fifth branch of the BlueWater Day Spa to open offers a venue where a harried working person can pamper the body with exclusive world-class services.

Located alongside chic bars, restaurant­s and watering holes, the newest branch in the successful spa series offers a new twist on leisure — one that actually helps themind and body.

“The location is perfect because TomasMorat­o lies in the business and leisure district of Quezon City,” said Ryan Simisim, the company’s vice president.

A trip to the spa should pose no hassle as it is near the two major television networks, with numerous corporate centers in the area.

“The traffic is high and people who normally go there are those whowant to unwind after a long day’swork. We want to offer them a beneficial­way of chilling out,” said Dick Balajadia, who owns the franchise branch with Mars.

The young couple, who had the idea of bringing the spa in the area, saw the potential of putting up an all-inclusive wellness center in the heart of TomasMorat­o.

Mars and Dick take great pride in the branch’s innovative Spa Theater. The 16-seat theater offers foot reflex, manicure and pedicure, body massage, scrub and waxing, while allowing guests to enjoy their favorite movie. The Spa Theater is equipped with state-of-the-art projector, screen and audio equipment to make the experience truly oneof-a-kind and complete pampering treat.

“Of course, our truly creative clients have used the Spa Theater as the venue for bridal showers, parties, and even corporate events. Andwe offer Spa Party inside the theater for only P10,000. It can ac- commodate 16 peoplewho can indulge in a variety of treatment for three hours. We will supply them with themovie and we even have popcorn and drinks!” saidMars.
