Spending Easter at Discovery Primea

Once in awhile it’s nice to get away from it all even if it’s just a few miles away from home and even just for a night. Some people think that Discovery Primea is residential only but there is actually a hotel with over 100 rooms.  It’s also a perfect place to book your business associates or friends visiting because it is very central to the business districtMix it Up This March at Discovery Primea (2)

Notice that as soon as you enter @discoveryprimea there is a scent that immediately brings good vibes. During our visit it was Lily

Mix it Up This March at Discovery Primea (16)It was my first time to try Hammam which is a Turkish treatment

The treatment begins with a full body steam followed by a dousing, to prepare you for the relaxation. The pampering begins….laying down on the heated marble bed, Terazi’s therapist initiates a 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.Mix it Up This March at Discovery Primea (18)Mix it Up This March at Discovery Primea (17)A maximum of two people can use this together.  As soon as they turn it on, the steam comes out immediately.  I love steam baths.  A friend of mine suggested this to me so I do this weekly.  In a Hammam treatment it is just the first partMix it Up This March at Discovery Primea (20)

After the Hammam we had the Signature massage

At the 3rd level, The Annunciation Chapel. Rafael told us that one thing about the Discovery family is that they are very spiritual. The owner Mrs. Cynthia Tiu constructed the chapel based on a dream she had which was the Annunciation. Mix it Up This March at Discovery Primea (35) Mix it Up This March at Discovery Primea (1)

 Loved the choir at mass, Koro Ilustrado @koroilustrado 5 out of the group of 30 sang today. They also sing every 2nd and 4th Saturday 430pm mass at Sanctuario de San Antonio. They also do concerts and performances and sing for events and weddings.
Lord, here I am to answer your call,
Lord, here I am to serve and love you.
I have left everything just to follow you.
Here is my heart, here is my mind;
Here is my soul, Here is my whole self
I am for you and you alonekoro ilustrado choir discovery primea chapel annunciation

I wish we didn’t have to leave. It was so much fun. Thank you Discovery Primea @discoveryprimea for our #Luxeweekened #LuxeStay
