Experience authentic Turkish hammam in the heart of Makati

Terazi Spa

And escape to blissful organic treatments at Terazi Spa

Experience an exotic, yet luxurious treatment right in the heart of Makati with the elegant 5-star spa that stands as one of the main attractions at Discovery Primea Makati. Sophisticated yet subdued, the Terazi Spa prides itself on having perfected the art of blending luxury, privacy and excellent service.


Expounding on their concept of transporting guests to an oasis of calmness, Karen Villarica-Neff, wellness consultant for the Terazi Spa, told Expat how the authentic quality of the Terazi treatments make it stand out from the plethora of spas in the metro.


“When I go to a spa. I go there because I don’t want to be in the city. I don’t want to be with many people. I just want to be there and be pampered and I want it to be about me. So that is what we aim to incorporate or what we really want our guests to experience; that there is somewhere else that is unworldly, and this is through the quality of our treatments,” said Villarica-Neff, who personally curated the spa menu and developed the intensive training program for its therapists.

The Hammam is one of the said treatments – a version of the traditional Turkish bath facilities designed to soothe both body and spirit. A visit to Terazi’s Hammam is, in itself, a journey. The treatment begins with a full body steam followed by dousing to prepare you for the relaxation you’re about to indulge in. The sense of pampering commences as Terazi’s therapist initiates deep body exfoliation using the traditional ‘kese’ mitt and castile soap to cleanse every inch of your body. Immediately after, you will be covered in a cloud of soapy bubbles, to wash away dead skin cells. Your treatment is completed with a cold, refreshing drink, served in The Terazi Tea Lounge.


“When they’re receiving a treatment, we nurture them, we love them, we really take good care of them. I think that is [the] prime objective when we have guests. We’re not just rubbing bodies, we take care of them,” Villarica-Neff claims.


“Terazi Spa is a place where they can actually be loved and taken care of without prejudices.”
Aside from the Hammam, the Spa also features a menu of traditional and natural healing therapies that were carefully designed to restore the body’s balance and rejuvenate the spirit.


The treatments use naturally sourced ingredients from flowers, plants and fruits—all prepared and administered by well-trained expert therapists, while intimacy marks the Terazi Spa experience with its limited number of treatment rooms, exclusive steaming facilities and soaking tubs.
