Palawan’s Amanpulo is famed as an escape where you can truly experience the luxury of silence and tranquility. Aman Spa’s wellness and fitness specialists are on hand to help you achieve your wellbeing goals. One traditional Filipino healing technique is rebalancing areas of tension in the body by alternating hot and cold, using banana leaves and cold-pressed coconut oil. A soothing full-body massage called Pag-asa uses the cumulative healing knowledge of their in-house experts to channel intuition and kindness in order to heal and rejuvenate. The spa also offers private yoga sessions to fully bring out the peace in you.
