The best spas in Singapore
For exquisite facilities and divine treatments, the beautiful Sentosa haven of So SPA is hard to beat. The outdoor spa garden features a stunning swimming pool, a float pool with cascading waterfall, a mud pool and, for the ultimate zen experience, a calming meditative labyrinth. There is even a private ladies-only area so us girls can still enjoy all of these facilities by ourselves. We also love the sound of the unique spa menu. Our top picks include the 105-minute (totally indulgent yet completely necessary) SoWell treatment, the signature (and award-winning) The Sentosa Massage, and the magical sounding Asian Cocoon Dream.
So SPA, 30 Allanbrooke Road Sentosa, Singapore 099983
Yunomori Onsen and Spa
It’s the best of Japanese onsen and Thai massage at Yunomori Onsen and Spa. If a massage is not on your agenda, all you need to do is pay an entry fee to enjoy the onsen baths. Put your phone away and take a dip in the mineral-rich, warm waters of various onsen baths. Move between a bubble bath, soda spa, jet bath, silk bath, and cold bath (if you dare) and soak those minerals in. Be sure to take a break at the lounge if things get too hazy. End your sesh with Japanse-inspired food and snacks at the Yunomori Café. You’ll leave feeling brand new.

The Thai Spa
Who needs to travel all the way to Thailand when you can enjoy an authentic Thai massage right here? Head to The Thai Spa for a rejuvenating Thai massage and therapy by experienced masseurs – all done in a swanky yet cosy setting. Apart from a solid Thai massage, The Thai Spa also offers services like hot stone therapy, lomi lomi massage (a healing massage derived from the ancient Polynesians), deep tissue massage and the four hand massage as the ultimate stress-reliever. If you really want to treat yourself, add a foot spa, rose honey and milk bath or a facial to your spa day. And ladies, you don’t have to worry about using a common shower here – all therapy rooms come with a private shower. There’s even a jacuzzi inside couple rooms. Oh, and did we mention it’s strategically located in Suntec City? Major love!

Serena Spa at Singapore Marriott Tang Plaza
For times when we’re beyond exhausted and in dire need of a quick spot of rejuvenation, we troop to Serena Spa at Singapore Marriott Tang Plaza. Despite its central and busy location, the spa is incredibly serene. Stepping out of the elevator and into its premises, you’d hardly believe Orchard’s bustling shopping streets are only mere storeys below you. If you’re looking for a spa treatment with effects that actually last, you’re in good hands here, as the menu includes healing Ayurvedic treatments. We’ve personally experienced the martial arts-inspired Marma massage, and besides being ultra pampering, we felt calmer and more relaxed for a whole week. Check back here to read our full review!

Four Seasons Spa
At Four Seasons Hotel’s spa, you’d be forgiven for feeling like you’re in a faraway resort. The calming cocoon is quietly located on tree-lined Orchard Boulevard and offers a whole gamut of relaxing treatments. That includes an exclusive scrub and massage inspired by Singapore’s national flower: The orchid. The Neroli and Orchidee treatment uses L’Occitane products (Four Seasons was the first spa in the world to collab with the French brand) to gently exfoliate dead skin cells and release any muscular tension.

Opulent is the word you’d automatically think of when it comes to The Fullerton Spa. Besides the obvious reason (it’s located in the sprawling national monument), its treatments deliver visible and uplifting results, with pure, natural and paraben-free products from Aromatherapy Associates. You’ll leave knot-free, glowing and with buttery soft skin. If you’re coming in for regular treatments, you can make a day out of it, as you’re free to use the sauna, steam room and the stunning 25-metre infinity pool.

Inspired by the traditional ryokans of Kyoto, the spa is a 3,00 square foot space of tranquillity and total serenity. We suggest taking a dip in the Hinokinuro Sento, an onsen-style dip pool that promises to melt away stress, anxiety, aches and pain, as well as promote detoxification.
