The Thai Touch
Who would have thought that you could enjoy an authentic Thai massage in a Japanese onsen? On top of allowing you to experience the relaxing and rejuvenating benefits of an onsen right here in Singapore, Yunomori Onsen & Spa also offers a slew of Thai spa treatments. The traditional Thai Massage is undoubtedly the star of the spa menu, with therapists expertly trained in the art of holistic massage, which combines body rocking, rhythmic acupressure and assisted stretches to unknot deep tensions in the muscles, improve circulation and flexibility, as well as relieve stress.

Soak in Tranquility
Yunomori Onsen & Spa spans a whopping 16,000sqft at Kallang Wave Mall and boasts a total of 11 pools with six varieties of baths, from the Soda Spa (where the hot spring water is enriched with a high concentration of carbon dioxide to increase blood oxygen levels) to the Silk Bath (which contains micro-bubbles of hydrogen to alleviate aches and mental stresses).
For added relaxation and muscle-soothing benefits, add the Thai Herbal Compress to your treatment. Fragrant herbs are steamed in a cloth bundle and pressed onto the entire body for a heavenly experience. Or if you feel peckish after a long soak, the in-house café serves freshly made Japanese snacks and beverages so you can nourish yourself on the inside
