For some of our readers, Mother’s Day is just around the corner. There’s no better way to show love and gratitude to your mum, mother-figure, aunt, grandma, partner’s mum, or foster mum than a pampering experience at the spa. These treatments at Singapore’s best spas are set to offer her the gift of time and relaxation that she richly deserves.
Argan Oil and Alum Stone Face & Body Ritual, $399.00++ for 120 minutes at Remède Spa, The St Regis Singapore
The word lavish comes to mind whenever we’re blessed enough to experience the sumptuous face, body and pedicure treatments at St Regis’ Remède spa. This treatment whisks guests to other realms of indulgence with a complete face and body pampering experience. Encourage mum to visit Remède spa 30 to 40 minutes ahead of her treatment to take advantage of its aqua reflexology pools, heated baths and steam rooms. The Argan Oil and Alum Stone body ritual begins with a seriously luxe 60-minute alum stone body scrub, designed to purify the body and refine the skin. All traces of the exfoliant is washed away by the pressurised jets of the Vichy shower, which are set to target pressure points on the body. The therapist then lovingly cleanses the face using an indulgent white clay mask incorporating skin-nourishing royal jelly and soothing honey. Once clean from top to toe, mum will be led to a plush massage room for a dangerously relaxing massage using precious Moroccan argan oil to nourish and deeply moisturise her skin.
And as a special Mother’s Day treat, receive a Valmont Mini gift set with every two hour treatment at Remède Spa booked between 2 to 9 May 2021. The gift set includes a mini Prime Renewing pack cream mask, Restoring Perfection SPF50 cream and Vital Falls face toner.
Body Balancing Massage, $220 for 90 minutes at Kai Spa
Is she new to motherhood? We’ve got you. Vogue insiders know that Kai Suites, Singapore’s first luxury confinement hotel is the destination for premium post-partum care. And, just like Kai Suites which positively radiates oft-unseen levels of care and hospitality on its guests, Kai Spa, a tranquil, three-room haven is nothing short of healing for weary bodies, whether they be in the throes of pregnancy or beyond. One needn’t be a guest of the hotel to experience this hidden gem of a spa which incorporates traditional Malay and Swedish techniques in its pre-natal and post-natal body massages with modern, tech-led aesthetic treatments such as its non-invasive BTL Emsella device for to strengthen the pelvic floor and promote overall intimate health. The restorative body balancing massage does exactly as promised and more: after selecting an essential oil massage blend of her choice, mum will be lulled into deeper levels of relaxation and possibly even catnap as her therapist expertly kneads knots, tension and muscle strain (zeroing-in on hardworking zones such as the neck, shoulders, lower back, hips and calves) away from her body in this deeply restorative treatment.
Spa-rty for Mom, $464 for one person or from $812 for two persons for 180 minutes at Ritz-Carlton Spa
Nothing says ‘I love you’ like three luxurious hours in heaven aka the Ritz-Carlton Spa. The experience begins with a 30-minute Body Reviver body scrub to gently slough, smooth out and renew your skin from neck to toe; before a 60-minute Signature Massage ensues to deep dive into all of mom’s (and your) areas of tension to relieve aching muscles and undo the knots with long, firm strokes and kneading. An indulgent 90-minute custom ESPA facial follows, where the therapist will custom the skincare used according to your skin type and skin needs. Is it anti-ageing, brightening, hydrating or soothing you’re after? Let the warm, attentive therapist know. And the cherry atop this spa escapade? A glass of champagne to be savoured poolside, under the shade of a cabana and a complimentary ESPA Positivity Pulse Point Oil roll-on to take home as a memento of her trip to the day spa. Spa goers can also enjoy the amenities like a steam room, sauna and heated therapy pools before or after this 180-minute pampering journey.
The offer is valid from 1 May to 30 June 2021, subject to availability, not valid for gift certificate purchase, and is not cumulative with other promotions.
Just for Mum spa experience, $380++ per person for 2 hours 30 minutes at The Spa, Mandarin Oriental
It’s the classic facial, leg and shoulder massage but with a decadent, Mandarin Oriental twist. Score a little quality time with your mum or loved one with this pampering treatment, designed to rejuvenate the skin and refresh the body. Tucked away in the Mandarin Oriental’s luxe spa, the Just for Mum experience delivers on two hours and 30 minutes of pure top-to-toe indulgence. The encounter begins with a foot ritual to cleanse and soak the feet, easing her into the experience to come. She’ll then be led to the massage bed, where her therapist will analyse her current complexion’s needs, and administer an Aromatherapy Associates Age Repair facial—the highlight of which involves a face massage to lift and sculpt facial muscles, promoting circulation to reintroduce that coveted, well-rested spa glow. She’ll also be treated to a restorative eye treatment to help refresh and de-puff tired eyes. The therapist will then melt away tension in her neck and shoulders, and move to the legs where she’ll perform a soothing pandan poultice foot massage to undo water retention in her calves and fatigue in her feet.
The Just for Mum experience is available from 1 to 31 May 2021.
Super Vibrator, $250 for 60 minutes at Spa Esprit
Whether your mum needs to realign her chakras or could just use a treatment that melts both physical and mental stress, this multi-sensory experience combines the best of Hawaiian Lomi-Lomi and Thai stretch massage techniques with Spa Esprit‘s very own brand of good vibes that will leave guests rested and feeling deeper levels of peace as they emerge from their 60-minute treatment. The restorative experience begins with an EPS (Emotional Positioning System) reading which uses her fingerprints to map out her personal energy blueprint, assessing any energy weaknesses. Does she need a little grounding or could her heart centre need a little extra TLC? The results of the EPS reading then guide Spa Esprit staff to prescribe the most appropriate treatments and essential oils for the experience. In strategic moments during the body massage, the therapist will play a Himalayan singing bowl on the back and abdomen where vibrations and soundwaves will resonate and reverberate throughout the body. It could be the twinkle of the tingsha bells or the overall wave-like moves of the therapist as she massages your body, but it’s fair to say nothing will help you sleep better than an encounter with the Super Vibrator.
