Pamper yourself from head to toe. On top of a facial and massage, a manicure and pedicure session is an essential treat to energise tired limbs and revive your spirits. Anyone who takes their manis and pedis seriously would have heard of Bastien Gonzalez. The French, Paris-trained podiatrist is renowned for his ultra-luxurious and transformative approach to foot and nail care, and counts the likes of Naomi Campbell and Gwyneth Paltrow as his clients. But there’s no need to book a flight to Paris to indulge in his signature treatments. Just book yourself into the Pedi:Mani:Cure Studio by Bastien Gonzalez at The St. Regis Singapore’s Remède Spa.

All Hands on Deck
Bastien’s Duo treatment is the crème de la crème of hand, foot and nail pampering. Two therapists work seamlessly in synchronised motion to meticulously clean, buff and shape your nails while softening rough skin. Medical-grade scalpels are used to eliminate dry skin and cuticles, while a leather chamois buffing cloth restores nails to a brilliant, natural and healthy sheen.
Walking on Air
After your nails are perfected, your hardworking hands, feet and calves are treated to a thorough and restorative massage that not only works to relieve water retention but also to release tension and improve circulation. The end result? You’ll walk out of the spa feeling like you’re walking on soft, fluffy clouds.
