With the hectic lifestyle in Singapore, sometimes, all one needs to unwind is a day at the spa. The concept of a little rest and relaxation (R&R) getaway at spas is quite popular in Singapore, which explains the large (and still growing) number of spas spread out all over the island.
It has come to the point that spas are no longer just found at hotels or on resorts or even just in the town area of Singapore but rather, you can easily stroll into a relaxing and reputable spa in the comforts of your suburb. The benefit of a wide range of spas in Singapore means that customers have their pick in accordance to their budget, from the exclusive and posh spas that charge an exorbitant amount to the smaller spas that goes easy on your wallet.
Currently, the trend in Singapore with regards to spa is to purchase deals on popular websites such as www.deal.com.sg and www.groupon.sg. These websites often have spa promotions, on a daily basis, offering treatments at sometimes more than half the original pricing, making it very affordable to purchase. However, do take note that while some of these promotions may be applicable for all (Singaporeans and non-Singaporeans), others may require foreigners to possess an Employment Pass or Dependent’s Pass to be eligible for the deals. In any case, we have also listed three popular spas in Singapore of different price ranges that you may want to visit for that R&R getaway!
Known to be one of Singapore’s most popular and finest spas, Spa Botanica is the epitome of relaxation. With its multiple accolades over the years, Spa Botanica offers a wide variety of packages ranging from its signature treatments to day packages, and even specific packages targeted to travelers and pregnant women. Spa Botanica is located at The Sentosa Singapore and at Tanglin Club. However, be prepared to pay a few hundred dollars (at the very least $$100 [USD81] onwards) to be pampered at this spa, as the treatments do not come cheap!
Address: Spa Botanica, 2 Bukit Manis Road, Sentosa, Singapore 099891
What better way to get away from the hustle and bustle of the concrete jungle than to have a spa treatment within the lush and tranquil greeneries of a national park? The spa rooms at Aramsa Spa features an open concept within a garden setting, allowing you to relax to the sounds of nature and enjoy the sight of the greeneries that surround you and forget all the worries that may be on your mind. Treatments at Aramsa Spa start from S$50 (US$40) onwards.
Address: Bishan Park 2, 1382 Ang Mo Kio Ave 1, Singapore 569931
Balik Kampung Spa: The Neighbourhood Spa
Located in the heartlands, Balik Kampung Spa (which means returning to the village or returning home in Malay) brings you back to a time where things were simple and stress-free. As it is marketed as a neighbourhood spa, you can be sure to get better deals at Balik Kampung Spa in comparison to the higher-end spas in the more exclusive areas. However, lower pricing does (from $$25 [USD20] onwards) not mean a compromise on the ambience and the treatments. Balik Kampung Spa does not fail to exude the idyllic façade that most spas do and offers a wide range of treatments from nail care to full body massages.
