Forget your work woes – it’s time for Treat yo’self Thursday. Relax and revitalise at this lush Sentosa oasis
Need a break? We sure as heck do. Which is why we came up with Treat yo’self Tuesday a new, fortnightly series where we pick a swoon-worthy treatment, a little bit of inspiration to relieve you of the stresses and strains of daily life. This week we found ourselves dreaming of island getaways, and since we can’t spare the time, we picked second best: one of Singapore’s most revered beauty destinations, Espa in Sentosa.
This calming oasis in the midst of Sentosa’s hustle and bustle helps you distract from the realities of outside (and life) with top-notch facilities, verdant green spaces, and of course, amazing spa treatments that take relaxing to a whole new level. Start with a warm dip in the Vitality Pool. Heated at 36 to 38 degrees, the pool’s hydrojets help to relieve muscle tension. After a good 15 minutes, head to the Cold Plunge Pool to regulate your body temperature and relax you.
Now begins the actual treatment. Surrender yourself to the Turkish Hammam experience, which takes place in an airy chamber equipped with a full sized scrub plinth, oversized rain showers and a steam room.
Choose from four durations; the range includes a revitalising 25-minute cleanse and a two-hour shebang. Then, settle down for an hour’s personalised massage – we dare you not to fall asleep. Still hankering for a quick snooze? Take forty winks at one of the 18 sleeping pods available. We promise you’ll wake up revitalised, and with all your worries gone.
