There is no shortage of good spas in Singapore, but very few match up to the standards that ESPA at Resorts World Sentosa has set. An oasis nestled in Sentosa, ESPA has a wide range of spa treatments – from signature massages to facials, and body therapies – that can cater to all your needs and luxurious desires.
With a 10,000 square metre area, ESPA has the luxury of space and has hence created an enchanting sanctuary which will make you feel relaxed and at ease upon stepping in. The hint of fragrance in the air, the sounds of calm splashes from the water features and the gentle voices of the staff are little meticulous thoughts that attribute to experience; a lush positivity, I’d call that.
We suggest arriving at least an hour prior to your appointment and enjoy a pre-treatment soak in the Outdoor Vitality Pool and Cold Plunge Pool, designed specially to relieve muscle tension. Its Rock Sauna is also very unlike the typical saunas – it is bright and airy with a view of the pool and greens. For the ladies, there is also a steam room within the restroom, and a 10-minute steam bath is highly recommended to detoxify and to relax both body and mind before the proper treatment begins. ESPA has indeed delivered a fantastic spa experience with its beyond impressive facilities.
Following the pre-treatment relaxation was a 60-minute ESPA Personalised Massage, where we were driven by buggy to a private Beach Villa we called our own for the next 2 hours. Our therapists helped to assess our problem areas and advised on the most suitable massages for us, before they placed us on heated massage beds that overlooked the Keppel Bay. The view that we got while our therapists worked their magic on our bodies is one that is unrivalled and definitely the best one to have while enjoying an afternoon spa. And of course, the massage itself was strong and firm just like how we prefer, and had us feeling so free from tensed up shoulders and aching lower backs. The second hour that we had to ourselves was spent soaking up some sun while taking a short swim in the outdoor private pool. The villa also comes complete with shower facilities, so you can clean up before taking your leave.
If you are planning to give your partner a little surprise, a spa indulgence at ESPA cannot be more perfect. Whisk your partner off to this secluded corner of Resorts World Sentosa and enjoy some quality time together. You get to enjoy five-star spa treatment in a beautiful beach villa suite facing the sea – we cannot think of a better way to spend the weekend.
Just a note that the prices are more generally steeper than most spas, but every dollar that you pay will be well worth the splurge, and if money is not too big an issue, ESPA is undisputedly the ultimate spa destination in town.
