Portrait of Tammy Strobel

IN HINDU, OM is believed to be the primordial sound of creation and as a mantra evokes a meditative state of being. The Aum Spa at the Crimson Resort and Spa in Mactan, Cebu promotes just this soothing and awakening sense. Reinvigoration begins with a stroll along meandering blossomed paths to the Aum Spa itself, where scents of dayap calamondin and orange blossoms instantly begin to fade stress.

An Asian-inspired, wooden facade lit with candles creates a welcoming space with an aura that intrigues and awakes the senses, and is complimented with a warm and Zen-inducing spa reception.

Aum Spa and wellness centre offers a range of holistic services and contemporary treatments that draw on old traditions. Harnessing the restorative properties of nature and the healing benefits of touch, this award-winning and internationally-recognised relaxation haven delivers authentic, unique and meaningful experiences. Guests are invited to laze in the sauna and steam room, luxuriate in a leisurely soak at the outdoor Jacuzzi, indulge at the Thai cabana or take a catnap in our relaxation room.

Massages and treatments are carried out in one of eight single or couple’s rooms with sunken tub and our hidden pavilion is situated amidst a corner garden where guests feel truly at one with nature.

Aum Spa offers individual treatments and half-day spa packages for those who want to abandon the worries of the world for four blissful hours.
