The Spa at Mandarin Oriental, Singapore

A soothing Singapore retreat
With six treatment rooms, the recently overhauled Spa at Mandarin Oriental, Singapore is now a soothing retreat that includes two couples suites and relaxation lounges with steam rooms and sauna. You'll find everything from massages to custom-tailored facials on the menu. The spa's pedicure menu is unique and extensive, with treatments such as the ginger black pepper foot smoother, which uses essential oils to refresh feet.
Our Inspector's Highlights
• Interior design firm AB Concept, which has outfitted high-end spas, hotels and restaurants all over Asia, decorated the Forbes Travel Guide Five-Star spa.

• The modern interior uses a warm, natural color palette with dark woods, gray-and-white marble and mother-of-pearl accents. The lighting is dimmed and soft music plays throughout the soothing space.

• Upon arrival, you’ll start your spa experience off right with a specially made house-blend tea and a chilled towel to open up your pores, preparing your skin for the luxurious pampering to come.

• Crafted as an urban getaway, you’ll forget all about the hustle and bustle of the financial district and the striking Singapore skyscrapers right outside. 

• The spa boutique sells a signature product line that was developed exclusively for Mandarin Oriental, Singapore by specialty retailer Aromatherapy Associates. Products include body scrubs, washes and lotions, as well as bath, shower and body oils made from natural, paraben-free ingredients that were mixed by a master blender.
Things to Know
• The best way to get an appointment at the Singapore spa is to call directly and speak with a member of the spa’s concierge.

• Mandarin Oriental, Singapore’s concierge, might be able to sneak you in last-minute if you’re flexible about availability and the treatment you’d like.

• Keep in mind the Forbes Travel Guide Five-Star spa is intimate, with just six treatment rooms — two of which are ideal for couples treatments — we suggest making an appointment two weeks in advance, and no fewer than two to three days before.

• The luxury Singapore spa is open daily from 10 a.m. to 11 p.m. so you do have a wide window for booking.

• If you give more than 24 hours’ notice, you won’t be charged any fees, but if you cancel within 24 hours, you’ll have to pay for half your treatment.
The Treatments
• A soft- to medium-pressure massage well-suited for jet-lagged travelers, the spa’s signature Oriental Essence massage sees your therapist use essential oils made from frankincense, ginger and mandarin to gently knead your body into a softened state of total bliss.

• Let one of the spa’s expert therapists take the wheel with the Custom Aromatherapy Facial. This 80-minute session starts with a careful skin assessment and is followed with a soothing cleansing, exfoliation and facial cream and mask applications catered to you.

• Featuring an Ayurvedic scalp massage and the application of cooling lavender oils and a hydrating facial mask, After Sun Therapy is ideal if you spent too much time soaking up some rays in that scorching Singapore sun.

• Perfect if you’re bothered by lingering muscle tension in your back and shoulders, the aroma stone massage draws on the natural healing properties of hot stones to help calm and alleviate aching muscles.

• Taste of the Orient is not a single treatment, but rather a bundle of four separate services that includes a quintessence body scrub and Oriental bamboo massage, this pampering three-hour spa program is the ultimate splurge.
The Facilities
• Offering just six sumptuously designed private treatment rooms, the intimate size of The Spa at Mandarin Oriental, Singapore means there’s a good chance you will have the immaculate locker room wet areas all to yourself.

• As you wait for your therapist to whisk you away, enjoy the dimly lit relaxation lounge with soothing music, soft lighting and plush chairs. There are two massage chairs where you can get started working out some kinks, or simply enjoy healthy snacks, bottled water and hot tea.

• Both the men’s and women’s locker rooms are connected to a small sauna, steam room and experience shower, with the latter featuring three different settings – Polar Mist, Tropical Rain and Island Storm — that alternate water temperature and pressure.

• You’ll have access to this luxury Singapore spa’s wet areas both before and after your treatment, so plan on arriving 30 to 45 minutes early to allow yourself plenty of time to get checked in, changed and fully relaxed.

• All spa guests have access to the pool area. Sit back in a chaise lounge or go for a dip in a sleek infinity pool with views of the harbor and city skyline.
