With design given just as much consideration as the treatments on offer, these luxurious spas really do feel like an escape from the city. But be warned, pampering won’t come cheap (nothing in Singapore comes cheap), but they’re just so worth it.

The most spectacular spas in Singapore

1. Banyan Tree Spa

Banyan Tree Spa, spas, Singapore
Banyan Tree Spa emphasises on a ‘high-touch, low-tech’ approach.

What is a Banyan Tree Spa not a reflection of nature? The space is designed to celebrate the ‘tree of life’ with elements like branches on the wall and smooth parquet floors. The brand’s spa treatments are typically very Asian-inspired but we’re in full favour of the Hawaiian Lomi Lomi massage. If there can really be too much of a good thing, alternate with the Royal Banyan, where two therapists work simultaneously on different parts of your body.

2. Remède Spa

Spas, Singapore
The St. Regis Singapore houses the first Remède Spa outside the United States.

The spa has an aquatic water theme, which explains those baubles you’ll see at the entrance to the treatment lounge. But more impressive than the transfixing baubles is the award-winning Pedi:Mani:Cure Studio inside the spa, created by the great pedicurist, Bastien Gonzales. For a complete top-to-toenail day of luxury, also get the Chi Nei Tsang massage. It’s meant to get the Qi in your body flowing well to restore balance. You’ll get chocolates after your massage too.

3. ESPA

ESPA, spas, Singapore
ESPA’s signature amethyst crystals are meant to help balance and heal you.

Make your way to Sentosa for an afternoon at ESPA where facilities are complemented by fantastic garden and pool views. There are four wellness programmes which are carefully crafted to suit each client, discussed during a prior lifestyle consultation. And we really do mean spa escape at ESPA — they have a Turkish hammam (you know how we feel about those) and Japanese onsen-style pools (you definitely know how we feel about those).

Location: Resorts World Sentosa, 18 Sentosa Gateway

4. Auriga Spa

Auriga Spa, spas, Singapore
The fishy Auriga walkway.

If your idea of being kind to yourself is being kind to nature, minimise your carbon footprint as you find your way to Auriga. The spa uses only organic products from The Organic Pharmacy. Every room even has a personal outdoor garden! Feel good about yourself as you sweat out the pollution from your pores in the herbal steam room, splash around in the ice fountain and take a quiet hour and a half with the Senja Sunyi Massage, a Javanese massage that uses a delicious rose and pomegranate body balm.

Location: Capella Singapore, 1 The Knoll, Sentosa Island

5. The Luxe House

The Luxe House, spas, Singapore
All massage therapists are handpicked, some even award-winners.

Love the name, love the spa even more. Literally in a house, or perhaps manor is a more fitting description, the spa pulls out all the stops for its aesthetic. Think grand armchairs, lots of black, marble floors and chandeliers. The treatments live up to the same standards. In particular, the intensive rejuvenation foot therapy could become a weekly addiction for you, which uses hot stones for cupping on your feet.
