ESTHEVA Spa : The Finer Side of Life
by: Aslinda Khanaf
The next time you feel a need to pamper yourself, book a date with Estheva spa. The 13-year old Singapore spa has garnered a reputation all around the world. From being named ‘the best spa’ to being known as the chosen retreat for the famous and wealthy all over, Estheva will not fail to live up to its accolades. Your search for your ultimate luxury may just end here, on the third floor of Palais Renaissance.
A visual stunner, the décor of Estheva is set fit for royalties. With a very country-inspired theme, you will be treated to glistening lights against the white marble, plush couches in the lounge area and a lot of flowers. It’s almost like stepping into the little house on the prairie, but way on the other side of town. The treatment rooms come in a splendid setting. With a table set with flowers, paintings on the wall and the soothing soft colours on the wall, it looks more like a dream bathroom than a treatment room. You will feel immediately comfortable, and not to mention, in awe, while feeling your insecurities going down. With your comfort being high on their list as well, the lights are kept dimmer than most spas, casting shadows that are too delightful to be ignored. A tub for the hydrotherapy massage does not come attached with every room though, so it’s best you make your request early.
Famous for their spa treatments, one of our highly recommended choice is the detoxifying package. A detox is necessary for you to get rid of all the toxins in your body, so leave it to the experts. They will start off with an absolutely necessary Seaweed Full Body Polish. Sparing not a single skin cell, the rub down will prepare your body to take in the nutrients of the following treatments. Of course, it helps to clear your skin of the dead cells. Then, you will be placed in a body wrap. There is a heating pad beneath the treatment bed to keep you warm, but also ultimately doubles up in helping you with the sweats. Once the body is all moist, enjoy the relaxing vibrations of the hydrotherapy tub. The powerful currents of the water will allow you to just soak in and let your thoughts run free. Finally, you will be treated with a body massage to top it all off. Naturally, most people will be skeptical. However, take our word for it. You will feel rejuvenated and you will sense a difference in your body.
Also known for their beauty aids, Estheva offers one of the best facials in Singapore to give you a complete head-to-toe perk-up. However, the interesting highlight here is the C-Matrix range, high-performance facials which promise to be the saviour for aging and dry skin. Youthful and radiant skin is just a treatment away.
Notably, the staffs here are very professional and well-trained. They come from other parts of Asia, providing hints of authenticity to your treatment. Very polite in their demeanor, they pack quite a lot of power in those small frames of theirs. But don’t worry, you can always tell them when the pressure is too much for your body.
Granted, the price here can be quite steep but you can be assured that you are paying for top-notch quality and service here. From the gorgeous décor to the results-guaranteed treatments, you are in no position to be bargaining here. Hey, if the best things in life are free, the really excellent ones come with a price you will not mind. Serving a clientele that is highly female, Estheva also throws spa parties for those who want a special way of celebrating. It’s not hard for you to imagine toasting the bubbly in here. After all, what is life when you cannot share the good things with your friends and family?
Essentially, Estheva’s reputation is not hard to explain. It is the complete package of what life will define as unforgivingly luxurious. Even if your budget does not allow you to become a member, if you feel the need to splurge, this is the obvious spa choice. Just make sure you dress properly enough to be able to step into Palais Renaissance without standing out like a sore thumb.
