When you are pampered at The Spa at Mandarin Oriental, Singapore, you can choose from an array of treatments that blend ancient and contemporary traditions from all over the world. For a one-of-a-kind experience, try the Oriental Bamboo massage, which uses varying sizes of bamboo sticks to knead your muscles, increasing blood flow and getting rid of body tension. You could also try the ancient Japanese Shiatsu massage, which uses hand pressure to realign your body’s energy levels. If you’re an expectant mother, try the Baby and You massage, which uses a unique Malaysian technique for pregnant women that relaxes the upper back and shoulder areas.
Among the most luxurious amenities at the Forbes Travel Guide Five-Star spa are the couples’ suites, where you can enjoy private treatment time with your partner. The Suite Romance treatment is the perfect way to get away from it all, with nearly three hours of pampering and relaxation. It starts with a foot ritual and a bath, followed by a moisturizing vanilla and honey sugar body scrub. You’ll end the experience with aromatic full-body massages, with the scent of frankincense, mandarin and ginger wafting through the air. If you’re looking for a tried-and-true, only-at-Mandarin-Oriental treatment, go with the signature Oriental Essence massage, designed to relieve neck and shoulder pain. It focuses on key stress points using relaxing bath oil blended with ginger, mandarin and frankincense.
