If outdoor space is a must for you, there’s a deck where you can relax with a picturesque view of Taal Lake and Taal Volcano.

Inside, meanwhile, the retreat has traditional Chinese-themed private bedrooms and massage rooms with concrete walls, red accents, and soft lighting. This will make it easy for you to doze off and get your much-needed sleep.

The place is also a teahouse that serves tea, dim sum, and other Chinese dishes.

Their dim sum set, which costs P880 (~USD15.69), includes crystal prawn dumplings, beancurd rolls, and Chinese leek, or what we know as kutsay dumplings. There’s also the crowd favorite xiao long bao (P630, ~USD11.23) or soup dumplings.

If you want a full-course meal, Qiwellness Living also has a Yin and Yang 3-course set (P1,600, ~USD28.53) with shrimp salad, and char siu (barbecue pork), “squirrel” fish (sweet and sour fish), and a dessert of cold passionfruit soup.

Massages and hot and cold pools

Qiwellness Living also ensures that your stress is undone from within. They offer different types of massages, such as dry massage, deep tissue massage, and reflexology.

You can also use their hot and cold pools. The benefits of using a hot pool include stress and pain relief, muscle relaxation, and improved sleep. On the other hand, a cold pool helps you ease muscle soreness and helps you cool down faster when you overheat.
