Dreaming of a new urban hideout where you can pamper and indulge yourself after a long day? Look no further than the new Raffles Spa. Located in the shopping arcade of the exquisitely restored Raffles Singapore, it marries luxurious face and body treatments inspired by Asian wellness philosophies with an opulent, serene setting—perfect for a rejuvenating journey for body and soul.
Love gemstones? With Raffles Spa’s new Raffles Signature Gemstone Massage, you can now make them part of your beauty routine. Harnessing the benefits of precious stones such as garnets, amethysts and rose quartz, the customised body experience employs a mix of various massage techniques to soothe aches and melt away tension. Following an in-depth consultation, your therapist will select a botanical massage oil infused with the crystal with the spiritual and physical benefits that best meet your needs. Rose quartz, for instance, is said to, among other things, lower stress and lift spirits, increase microcirculation and improve skin elasticity. The nutrient-packed oils from ISUN, a premium line of products used exclusively at high-end spas around the world, are handcrafted with cold-processed organic botanical oils and deliver a host of benefits to skin, including anti-inflammatory, antioxidant, purifying and moisturising effects.
A GEM OF A SPA
Designed by award-winning New York-based interior design firm Champalimaud, this downtown oasis goes the uber-glam route with a gemstone theme that runs through the spa, from the names of the seven treatment suites right down to the glass of water (you guessed it: it’s gemstone-infused) that serves as a welcome drink. And at Raffles Spa, the pampering doesn’t end when the treatment does. With well-appointed lounges, an aromatic steam room, an ice fountain, a sauna and a vitality pool, this holistic sanctuary spoils you and makes it so easy to while away the day. And because good things should be shared, why not grab your friends and book The Gem Suite, a plush, exclusive space that can accommodate up to six guests? It comes with its own treatment room and facilities, making it perfect for a spa-rty.
Raffles Signature Gemstone Massage ($385++ for 90 minutes) is available at Raffles Spa, #01-31 Raffles Arcade (tel: 6412 1377).
