Tucked away discreetly on the fifth floor is The Spa at Mandarin Oriental, Singapore. At 528 square meters, the spa comprises four treatment rooms, a Couples' Suite, manicure and pedicure area, as well as a relaxation lounge. Dressed in an exotic dark mandarin interior, the dimly lit spa lobby is an aura of calm and peace. Spa products are decked neatly on shelves to the right upon entry. The menu here boasts an array of holistic therapies and spa rituals.
Whilst browsing the menu, cold tea is served and shoes are discreetly removed in exchange for spa slippers. For a unique treatment, try the Oriental Essence Massage. Combining a unique blend of massage techniques from Asia, the indulgent one-and-a-half-hour Oriental Massage provides an excellent all-round relaxation for the muscles. Very unique to The Spa at Mandarin Oriental, Singapore, too, a tiny gong is sounded at the beginning and end of each treatment. This provided a truly "mandarin" touch to the Oriental experience.
The Mandarin Oriental, Singapore has a reputation for being a top business hotel and tired execs will not be disappointed with the spa experience in lovely surroundings. But should you find yourself here with a partner, the Couples' Suite with its Agape baths, steam room and opium bed may be the ticket.
