For the ultimate vacation, drop by JivaRhu Wellness & Beauty Retreat and indulge in the restorative powers of a traditional Malay massage. Lathering me with generous amounts of herbal oils, my therapist uses her thumbs and palms, and long calming strokes to gently induce blissful slumber. When I awaken an hour later, I feel refreshed and ready for a dip in the spa’s Jacuzzi. As I sip my ginger tea and bite into refreshing slices of watermelon, I enjoy the warm bubbles and ponder an extremely crucial matter – what shall I have for dinner?

Between Borneo and Manila, there is an archipelago with a biodiversity that is virtually unmatched, both underwater and above. Robinson Crusoe would feel right at home here on this final frontier called Palawan. With a kayak, snorkel and hiking shoes, I cross this boundary and enter paradise.
