In full bloom , A beautiful day filled with firsts for one of the country’s leading chain of day Spa's.


For years BlueWater Day Spa (BWDS) has been the day spa of choice for many as it offers a truly holistic approach to beauty and wellness.


Last April 5, the company marked two wonderful milestones as it announced the addition of some of the country’s most well-loved actresses to its roster of brand ambassadors as well as the launch of an exciting new service called Blue Water Day Spa 4 hand massage.

Held at the Luxent Hotel, BlueWater Day Spa prepared a relaxed yet fun afternoon, reflecting its long-time commitment to promoting a better awareness and understanding of the importance of wellness in today’s more fast-paced world. 
Luckily I have been one of the On line media guests at the event along were composed of friends and people from the media as well as other BlueWater Day Spa partners, who were served with delightful welcome drinks upon registration, setting the tone for a blissful afternoon.

Initially envisioned as a relaxing oasis, BlueWater Day Spa is a place where serenity wraps around you, comforting you amidst the chaos of city life. Hence, the program started off with the welcome remarks by Mr Francis Simisim.

Aside from its enticing selection of pampering as well as slimming and beauty treatments, BWDS has been able to maintain its lead by continuously coming up with new ways to keep its customers happy.
 After putting together a wonderful selection of massage and relaxation services based on the best practices being used all over the world, BlueWater Day Spa has also built a good reputation by partnering with some of the country’s most beautiful faces. BlueWater Day Spa’s brand ambassadors have served as inspiring examples that in spite of being go-getters and achievers in their own right, it’s imperative that they also make time to take care of their bodies to lead a more fulfilling, balanced life.
The fresh faces of BlueWater Day Spa
As such, BlueWater Day Spa introduced its current lineup of brand endorsers starting with the freshest faces from Mercator talent agency, which includes Brazilian heartthrob, Fabio Ide. From stressed to rest these lovely talents show how they are able to better take care of themselves with the help of BlueWater Day Spa. The featured Mercator Models include Sam Ajdani (Mr World 2015), Philippe Escalambre (Model), Mark McMahon (Actor/Model), Amadeo Leandro (International Model), Brent Javier (Model), and Bianca Guidotti (Miss International 2014/Beauty Queen).

Following the roster of models from Mercator, BlueWater Day Spa was happy to introduce the young and good looking talents from the Kapuso network – GMA-7, who are also part of BlueWater Day Spa’s roster of brand ambassadors.  Composed of Mike Tan, Ervic Vijandre, Benjamin Alves, and Aljur Abrenica, they are four of the hottest talents from the network, whose busy schedules need to be balanced with well-deserved me-time to keep them looking and feeling fresh.

For the third segment of its brand ambassadors, BlueWater Day Spa is excited to formally introduce and welcome, Nikki Gil as part of BlueWater Day Spa’s growing family.  Nikki is equally elated to be one of BlueWater Day Spa’s brand ambassadors, saying how hard it was for her to find quiet time to recharge and be ready for the various challenges she faces at work. She thanked BWDS for being her haven and hideaway, a place where she can be alone and recharge.

After beautiful performances from Nikki, BlueWater Day Spa then introduced young athlete, Anthony Semerad who, along with Nikki, has made a name for himself in the industry for both his athletic talent and good looks, who is currently part of the GlobalPort Batang Pier team in the PBA. However, long hours of training and various work commitments should always be balanced by ample rest and a proper diet. This is why Anthony is very grateful to be part of the BlueWater Day Spa family, as it allows him to give his body the much-needed treat that it deserves to stay fit and healthy.

Last but definitely not the least, BlueWater Day Spa is proud to welcome another well-known talent to its roster of brand ambassadors. Well-loved by many for her girl next door appeal, charm and beauty, Kim Chiu has been a favorite by fans as well as brands since she started in showbiz. As one of the most hardworking and highly-visible young actresses in the industry today, one might wonder how does Kim able to balance it all.

This is why the invitation to become BlueWater Day Spa’s newest brand ambassador for its exciting new service is very timely for Kim, who is currently busy with her new soap on ABS-CBN called, "The Story of US" along with other important commitments. As the face of BlueWater Day Spa’s latest service the totally relaxing, traditional Balinese four hand massage, Kim invites guests to try this delightful new treatment, which promises ultimate relaxation. BlueWater Day Spa introduces new treatments with health benefits every year.

Be swept away into a relaxing dream world, while two therapists work in unison, perfectly coordinate on both sides of the body. BlueWater Day Spa is the first spa in the country to offer this treatment wherein guests will be able to experience the deeply restorative benefits of having two therapists working as one. BlueWater Day Spa invites everyone to submit themselves to the healing powers of four hands as tension is relieved and muscles stretched. It is indeed something worth trying out on your next visit to BlueWater Day Spa.

With so many announcements packed in one day, guests of the event were assured of many more exciting things lined up for BlueWater Day Spa for the year such as the special introductory price for the Traditional 4-Hand Balinese Massage.  Avail of their ongoing Summer Promo up to 50% off on selected treatments until May 31, 2016.

These dynamic sandals are inspired by various possible lifestyles and moods to recognize all dimensions of the modern woman, such as arty, glamour, nature and sophisticated chic…
“The Ipanema with STARCK collection explores the territory of high elegance paired with the utmost minimalism. When you reach elegance with a few dollars or euros, this is no longer magic; it is a modern miracle,” says Philippe Starck.
The Ipanema with STARCK collection offers wearers the freedom of choice. Ultimately each woman can make her own selection from the variety of strap designs and colors that best represents her own unique style statement. The collection’s palette is a blend of neutral and citrus tones including white, black, smoke, acid yellow, orange, rose, transparent yellow, and transparent orange. The simple and sleek silhouettes are infused with an imaginative quality illustrating each of the four sensibilities. Organic elegance, purity, lightness and honoring the silhouette of the human form are quintessential to the design of the collection.
“We are truly privileged to team up with the world-renowned creator and creative genius Philippe Starck in this new collaboration,” says Cecille Loretizo, ELRO Retail Corporation Marketing Head. “This partnership will certainly bring timeless, accessible yet elegant line up of footwear for the modern, sophisticated women in the country and across the globe.”
 
Focusing on sustainability, Ipanema with STARCK was developed with 30% recycled materials and is 100% recyclable. To achieve Starck’s designs, Ipanema adapted its industrial process to one that is more manual and artisanal.  The production process employs proprietary plastique injection technique to guarantee product comfort and delicate quality. The shoes handcrafted assembly of the straps to the sole allows a perfect fit for the women. The Ipanema with STARCK collection is the perfect balance between industrial production and artisanal savoir-faire.
This new and intense collaboration joins an impressive bevy of Starck creations spanning lifestyle products such as furniture and windmills, to revolutionary mega-yachts and inspiring hotels and restaurants.
