Spa Break
EL Singapore|September 2021
One of our favourite ways to unwind is to indulge in a facial or body massage in a luxurious spa or beauty salon. Here are five spots to try!

The Thai Spa also offers a rose honey milk bath (top-up $20) instead of the regular jacuzzi.

The Thai Spa

This spa haven is conveniently located in Suntec City, making it ideal to pop into for a quick lunchtime fix if you’re working or running errands in the area. I’ve read great reviews about The Thai Spa, so I was excited to try the couple massage ($228, 75 minutes), which includes 60 minutes of full-body massage and a 15-minute jacuzzi.

Upon stepping in, my husband and I were pleasantly surprised by how spacious the couple therapy room was. There are two beds (with ample space in between), plus a decently sized jacuzzi in the same room, so the whole spa experience is seamless and comfortable. The Thai Spa’s masseuses are highly experienced in their craft, and it clearly shows during the massage. Deep, long strokes are used with medium pressure, along with traditional Thai massage techniques; I fell into a deep slumber within just 10 minutes!

I liked how my therapist was sensitive in picking out specific areas of tension, as my calves. She kneaded with her strong hands, and while the tighter parts of my body were sore, I could feel the tension gradually diffusing. After drifting in and out of sleep, I awoke in a state of dreamy bliss. It’s amazing how a good massage can make you feel well-rested and recharged!

La Source Spa

La Source Spa is a centrally located beauty and wellness sanctuary offering luxurious treatments in a private and luxe setting. From anti-ageing facials and therapeutic massages to hair services and eyebrow embroidery, this is a one-stop spot to get all your beauty needs sorted!

The treatment room is spacious with warm, muted accents, and I found myself feeling instantly calmer as the soothing spa scent (La Source uses its own aromatherapy blends) wafted through the air. I changed into a plush robe and comfy slippers and laid on the heated bed before my therapist Karen entered for my treatment of choice: the Meridian Bojin Facial Treatment ($298, 90 minutes).
