Bellevue Resort Panglao’s Azurea Spa

I went down the stairs at the Marea open air restaurant, at the opposite end of the infinity swimming pool, to the basement where Bellevue Resort Panglao‘s spa is located. A level just below the ground floor, Azurea Spa, the resort’s signature relaxation area comes as a surprise with its different design aesthetics that can’t be found in the rest of the resort spaces.

Azurea Spa has more of that warm hacienda aesthetics, a rather curious thing since from the name itself, I was thinking of relaxing light blue hues. It has Asian accents, there are African tribal masks and a different style of furniture that gives another feel. Is it Asian because of the Thai wood panels with elephants? Or Mexican because of its warm tone? Or both?

Or does it just represent the warmth of summer, sunshine breaking out with the rays of the sun bursting represented by the curved dark wooden beams at the ceiling emanating from the center like the spokes of a wheel? However, the hotness of the lobby is toned down once one goes inside the spa rooms. Light earthen colors, dark wood beams and raised wooden flooring at the center exudes comfort.
