Is work taking you East in 2011? Here’s Condé Nast Traveller’s list of award-winning and ultra-urban city spas in Asia – from Seoul, Shanghai, Singapore and Bangkok to Hong Kong. So go ahead and ring in the New Year with a new you.
Why go: ESTHEVA has won Best Luxury Day Spa in The Best of Singapore awards by Singaporean Tatler every year since 2006. Their clients are Singapore socialites, executives, professionals, business owners, expatriates and travellers.
The treatments: Try their C-Matrix for Face with Liquid Gems (SGD220 for 90 minutes) which uses a patented Collagen Matrix mask. Another good offer is their Celebrity Peel (SGD945 for 120 minutes). It’s a popular treatment that works like a non-surgical face lift to get all those collagen and elastin and vitamin A, C and E properties going.
Must try: The signature age-management treatment Choc De-Ager (SGD$355 for 150 minutes) which begins with an exfoliating Body Polish. Then, warm chocolate with sweet almond oil is drizzled on in an endorphin-inducing Chocolatier’s Massage.
Traveller’s tip: Couples should check out the super-sized VIP Spa Couple Suites, which have full private spa facilities attached, including a personalised hydrotherapy bath, steam and aromatic rain shower.
