At Home with Wellness

Posted on March 28, 2020 | No Comments on At Home with Wellness

Suburban villages may look postcard-pretty with their fresh weather, sprawling lawns, and spacious, single-detached houses that fulfill the idea of a dream home for Filipinos, but with monstrous traffic jams on virtually every avenue leading to the city, going back and forth every day for work is simply too taxing, impractical, and a nightmare!

This is why presently, condo living has emerged as an ideal choice among today’s mobile professionals, young couples and start-up families who are seeking the advantages that come with the lock-up-and-go lifestyle, strategic location, and prestige of a high-rise address. And to counter the effects of living in such concrete structures, developers have come up with amenities that address the wellness needs of their residents , ranging from the standard swimming pool and gym, plus unique features such as a sauna, jogging/ walking path, meditation corners, and even a dance studio right inside their building.

Here’s a list of these notable projects and their amenities for wellness, to offer home buyers a choice for a condo home that is attuned to their well-being.

Trion Residences by Robinson’s Land

The Trion Towers, Robinsons Land Corp.’s development located in the vibrant Bonifacio Global City (BGC), is a three-tower, 49-storey vertical development that offers, among others, natural light, natural ventilation and stunning views—sensorial pleasures that offer respite from the urban chaos while serving as pathways to a heightened sense of the mind-body-spirit connection that is at the heart of holistic living.

The project’s various design features and amenities include the beautifully-landscaped Central Plaza Garden which spreads throughout the development. Composed of quiet ponds, stirring meditation gardens, quiet reading nooks, healing paths and a majestic fountain, this sprawling space encourages homeowners to shut out the hurly-burly of urban life and channel oneself inwards to nurture the spirit.

Garden for totally magical evenings, while homeowners with balconies will enjoy sweeping vistas of various parts of the metropolis – a daily visual feast that can only provide psychic benefits to weary professionals.
The development also has features to address the needs of the body, including a beach-type swimming pool, a lap pool, a kiddie pool, children’s playgrounds, bicycle tracks, and an outdoor fitness area. For mental stimulation, meanwhile, the burgeoning landscape of BGC is found just a leisurely walk away—offering excellent bookstores to fantastic restaurants and entertainment hubs such as cinemas and game zones.
