My Spa Review

I said before that Sanctuary was too "public" for me.  Having gone to almost all of the spas around Divisoria, visiting Sanctuary was the logical thing to do.

Sanctuary is located within Grand Central Building, a favorite spot for yuppies and college students.  Expect a crowd during weekends.

Sanctuary is both a spa and a salon (Vixen).  The place is clean and simple.  I like it.  Unlike other spas that feels like a junk shop.  Too much clutter and loud colors.

Their Swedish massage cost around 320 Pesos.  A bit expensive compared to other spas in Divisoria.  The therapist assigned to me was Ramir or Ramer.

Their waiting area is along a hallway.  As soon as Ramir arrived I removed my shoes and dipped my feet on a wooden bowl.

After the foot wash, I was lead to my cubicle.  It had white curtains (it was thick enough).  On the bed was a basket with a white towel and shorts.

The first minute of the massage was promising.  As the massage progressed I was impressed.  

Ramir did not rush, the hand pressure was perfect and he knew which parts of my body that needed attention.  I just wanted to fall asleep.

There was no ES offered.  Again not a priority for me.  Remember that I complained before that spas no longer offer drinks after the massage?  Guess what...they offered me water or tea and hot towel.


For 320 Pesos, it was worth every centavo!  The place is nice and clean.  They offered me something to drink and the massage was one if not the best I ever had!!

The day after the massage, my body felt good and relaxed. If you want a good massage, I highly recommend Ramir.


  1. Naa pod female therapists?

  2. Yes they have female therapist. Tanan spa naay female therapist pero naay spa walay male therapist.

  3. 275 raman ila swedish sir..nag increase diay sila?

    1. That was the rate I paid them. I am not sure if that is the new or old rate. Check ko nalang utro sa ilang published rates.

  4. I agree with the above review. I went to Sanctuary last night, requested the combi massage at 375php. I was assigned to Ramir who did a better massage in an 1 hour and 15 minutes.

    Ssanctuary at GC is one of the cleanest spa in Cagayan de Oro. The receptionist is very professional in handling guest and clients.

    Ramir is professional too. He knows his work very well. Veteran massage addict can identify a massuer if he is really good on the first touch, how glides his hand on my back unlike the others.

    I like there tea too.

    Hospitality, Clean spa nd Superb massage makes Sanctuary the best spa in the city. I will recommend this spa to my friends.

    1. I am glad that I visited Sanctuary and got a massage from Ramir. Thanks for validating my review.

  5. is ramir fat or thin? funny coz i went there earlier,, the man assigned is kind of a big built body( i ddt got his name) by the wy admin their regular sweding massage only costed 275( confirmed) but i was discounted downto P199 only because thats their promo from 9am till 3pm. i arrived there at 2pm so i was still able to avail it..i agree with all youve said that the place was clean and comfy...but that guy did something to me..he focused on my groin area too much and touching my balls sometimes..i think he is gay...then he massage my chest and abdomen thoroughly..i had an obvious erection..hes teasing when it comes to the end, he offered me if i want water or tea..i said water..he got out..di ko matiis , hinubad ko short ko tapos nagjakol ako...when he came back to offer the water and towel, he was not surprised at all of what he saw,.in fact he helped me massage my groin while i jack off..and then i came..he wipe my over my abdomen..he tried to open up a conversation by asking me " taga cagayan raka sir" but i ddnt answer..i dont wanna have strings attached to him..well i just smiled goodbye at the end..gave him a P40 tip..well thats it...i spent only 239 for the experienced...thanks for reading

    1. Ramir is a small guy. Its another person. thanks for the comment

    2. Jojo is the other massuer at sanctuary. He needs more improvement on his massage.

    3. Guess we have almost the same experience except on the last part that you did. I really thought he was gay coz he was concentrating more on my groin and sometimes touching my balls. He's name is Jojo by the way.

  6. Massaging a groin by a massuer is not an indication that he is a gay. All massuers do, maybe for obvious reasons which the client and massuer mutually like for one reason another.

    The 370 combi of sanctuary composes of swedish amd shiatsu. Jojo did not do the latter to me, maybe he knows nothing on Shiatsu. Ramer did the shiatsu correctly.

    If you want clean massage with no hunky punky, Sanctuary is the best place for you. It's cheap 370php plus tip of 100php. The 470php will satisfy your need for relaxation.

    Unlike the other spa around, when the massuer knows you do not want extra service, the massage you lousyly. And if want ES it will cost you -your arm and leg, 195php plus tip 500 or 250php plus 700 tip.

    Thanks for Reading.

  7. Hi! Does anyone know asa ni si Jhong from Sanctuary nibalhin?

  8. Tried combination massage, it was worth the price. Thanks for the review.

    1. Welcome :) Keep sharing your experiences in the blog!

  10. Wala na si Ramir kay nag abroad na sa Saudi. Cleanliness og tea na lang ang nakapachada sa Sanctuary. Therapist wise, wala na. Ga offer na og ES.

  11. Kinsa pwde sa sanctuary spa?
