A healing, lavender-scented holistic hideaway is the last thing that would come to mind when you’re going through the frenetic paces of city life, but as it turns out, a decent spa isn’t hard to find.
Now synonymous as a means of temporary escape from everyday life, hotel spas are no longer reserved for pampering during that well-deserved staycation. Instead, these establishments have a renewed focus on wellness as a lifestyle, they have evolved to become much more than a simple outlet to recharge, and are now a pretty dreamy way to properly recuperate in peace.
If you need any more excuses to block out your calendar and let yourself drift off into a sea of immense tranquility, here are some of our favourite hotel spas in Singapore to make an appointment with now.
Microderme Aesthetics Pte Ltd was established in year 2011 and established its first brand “HealSpa”, as one of the best rated Spa in Singapore with the aim to provide natural therapies and wellness services. With the first outlet strategically located within the Central Business District at 100AM, the brand gained the trust of both local residents, specifically corporate executives, and tourists.
The company set up a Traditional Chinese Medicine (TCM) arm in Year 2016, “Liang Yi” brand to develop unique and targeted therapies based on the foundation of TCM. HealSpa also opened the second branch in the same year, located at Liang Court.
