Set high in the treetops overlooking the turquoise waters of the Sulu Sea, the Aman Spa at Amanpulo resort, on Pamalican Island in the Philippines’ Palawan province, offers a blend of Asian, Western, and local Cuyonon treatments. Three casita-style spa pavilions are built from native wood, with ceilings layered in lustrous capiz shells and picture windows framing views of the private island below. Each of the six spacious treatment rooms features a dressing area, a steam shower, and a deep soaking tub for total relaxation. Complete your experience with a pedicure, manicure, or hair treatment at the aptly named Finishing Salon.
