You don’t have to go far for this kind of R&R.

The quiet town of Tibiao in Antique is the first and the most popular place for kawa hot baths. In fact, it’s one of the highlights of Antique tourism. Tibiao is full of inns and resorts offering the service, and there’s a kawa (which translates to wok or a large shallow cooking pan) for one, couples and even groups. Each bath runs with local flowers and herbs that has medicinal qualities (that incidentally also make for great photos).

Maximize your relaxing vacation by also trying the Tibia Fish Spa, which is located just along the highway. You can also opt for a trek to the nearby Bugtong Bato Falls.
