Blanca de China Lifestyle Spa: A Piece of Peace in San Juan

My new place-to-be is San Juan. I say that not out of choice but lack of it. Basti’s school is in the area, so I find myself in the area, five days a week, three hours a day. At least. Oh what to do, what to do?

At the very least, I’ve got one place to go to in the area when I’m feeling tired and ragged around the edges. In the quiet little corner of P.Guevarra and Ibuna is a quaint little spa called Blanca de China. It’s in a pretty cool area of San Juan. The street itself is quiet, tree-lined and devoid of the usual rush and rage that is of this very busy street. This is the facade.

Tell me this scene doesn’t make you want to take your shoes off, put on your headphones and surrender your hands and feet to their very competent therapists.

There are tiny little bits of  inspiration everywhere.

Inspiration you may take home with you, if you wish.

They even have a tandem room where one can have a massage while the other is getting hand and feet treatments. Perfect for couples or girl friends who want to chit-chat while getting pampered.

For that day, I got their Ivory facial, which had me dozing off in no time. I plan to go back very soon for a massage and a mani-pedi.

To cap off your treatment session, you get a pretty little tray with tea and a cookie. Duma-Downton Abbey.

Thank you Joanne of Blanca de China for my wonderful afternoon! I’ll see you  guys again real soon.
