A couple of weekends ago, we finally found time to take the little ones to ACE Water Spa. We were actually obliged to go because the vouchers hubby bought were to expire the following day. 😛
Hubby was looking forward to trying the hydrotherapy massages and the hot herbal pools. Our little kids couldn’t be brought to the hot pools though and I couldn’t handle both the kids on my own so we spent the first couple of hours taking the kids round the different areas of ACE Water Spa.
The kids had fun drifting on square foam floaters round the Lazy River. They also had great fun splashing and playing under the mushrooms in the Kids Pool. Hubby and I wanted to try the different hydrotherapy massages so, with kids in tow, did the rounds and tried the ones that were available. There were quite a number of people then so I was unable to try some of the massages. My little girl loved the Bubble Pool though so that was where we spent most of our time. Hubby, on the other hand, loved the Upper Body Jet Massage which had rigid water pouring from elevated jets giving him a hard back massage.
When the kids had their fill of water fun, I took them to the Ace Coffee Lounge for some lunch while hubby tried the Sauna, Steam Bath, and the Hot Herbal Pools.
While we were having lunch at the cafe which was situated right beside the swimming pool, we saw two kids being taught how to swim by professional teachers. The teachers had complete training equipment and seemed very friendly that I’m considering enrolling my two kids in their classes. Perhaps, they’d be as good as fort lauderdale aquatics instructors and would have my little ones swimming like guppies after a few sessions. Another thing I like about ACE Water Spa and that I find perfect as a venue for swimming lessons is that the pool is indoors and has heated water. That means I won’t have to worry about my kids being out in the sun for too long nor of them being cold in the water. Besides, swimming offers so many benefits that even my husband and I would do well to take swimming as a form of exercise.
Overall, our first experience at ACE Water Spa was a great splash! We would definitely take the kids back for some hydrotherapy massage, and, if budget permits, some swimming lessons. I find the rate of P550/person quite costly though so I would just take advantage of group deals where we can get tickets for only P349/person.
