EXECUTIVE CHRONICLES | Valentine’s Day doesn’t on mean spending time in cozy restaurants or romantic food spots. There are lots of places where you can spend Valentine’s Day but making it more special means finding venues with unique offers that help create new and memorable experiences.
Lucky for you, Globe myBusiness, the micro, small, and medium-enterprise arm of Globe Telecom, has compiled a list of special places you should visit to make sure your day of hearts will be one for the books:
Spa and Wellness Centers
Relaxation is at its finest in spas and wellness centers. These places offer different ways to de-stress, perfect for Valentine’s Day.
Among the things you can try are massages from skillful masseurs. Coupled with aromatherapy, massages can help you feel refreshed in just a few minutes. On another note, some spas and wellness centers offer unique amenities like saunas, fish spas, jacuzzis, and hydromassage pools that are guaranteed to leave you wanting more.
If you’re looking for an out-of-the-box experience on this special day of love, why not try camping and lounge on the best of what nature has to offer?
Groups of professional hikers and mountaineers are now offering this experience in different campsites near Metro Manila. Also, some resorts take camping to the next level by offering “glamping” as one of their options for accommodation. Glamping lets you enjoy the best of nature with resort amenities.
Beachside resorts are in high demand during summer months, but that doesn’t mean Valentine’s Day would be a bad time to enjoy the sand and sea.
In the sea, you can try kayaking, canoeing, or even island hopping for beachside resorts in places like Boracay, Alaminos, and Puerto Galera. If you want to check what’s underwater, you can try snorkeling, scuba diving, or riding glass-bottom boats. On land, you can explore different areas of a resort or schedule dinners by the seaside.
Central Luzon houses some of the oldest churches in the Philippines, making it a popular spot for pilgrims and tourists alike, even on Valentine’s Day. Be it in Pampanga, Bataan, Zambales, or Tarlac, you’ll surely encounter popular churches with rich histories.
One example is the Monasterio De Tarlac, which is a monastery located at the top of Mount Resurrection that showcases a relic of the cross where Jesus Christ died. A 30-foot colossal statue of Jesus Christ also stands on top of the mountain, making it a popular destination, especially during the Holy Week.
A lot of festivals take place in the month of February and luckily, some of them are dated near Valentine’s Day!
The renowned Panagbenga Festival in Baguio City is a celebration of the city’s floral crops showcased through huge floats and artistic displays. Crowds from across the country flock to Baguio City just for this event, which this year will be held on February 24, 2018.
If you want to make an advance trip for Valentine’s Day, the Hot Air Balloon Festival in Clark, Pampanga, is a sure-fire destination for your senses as well. The festival will take place from February 8 to 11, 2018, perfect for couples and families who want to experience something that they don’t see every day.
Valentine’s Day is a day of love. Be it a date with just your partner or a group date with your whole family, taking the time off work and spending valuable time with them is an investment in itself. After all, your business is for the people who matter the most.
With these suggestions, you’ll surely have a rich and worthwhile Valentine’s Day experience that will help inspire your success in the years to come!
