There are thou­sands of spa treat­ments across the world. Here are some of our favourites in South-East Asia and the Pa­cific.

Fiji, Cocodil Bobo Combo foot mas­sage: Wild-crafted Fi­jian nut oils and tra­di­tional Fi­jian mas­sage are high­lighted in this sig­na­ture treat­ment of Si­ga­toka Spa, lo­cated in the pop­u­lar hol­i­day town Si­ga­toka on Fiji’s Co­ral Coast. This foot and low­er­leg mas­sage com­bines re­flex­ol­ogy with Shi­atsu, Thai and Swedish mas­sage tech­niques. See siga­tokas­pafiji.webs.com.

Sin­ga­pore mas­sage: The Chi­nese, Malay and In­dian mas­sage tech­niques used dur­ing this treat­ment at Sin­ga­pore’s Swis­so­tel Mer­chant Court are spe­cific to those in­grained in the city’s cul­tural her­itage. Over 90 min­utes the lav­ish treat­ment re­bal­ances the mind and spirit, ex­pels fa­tigue, ten­sion and stress, and ban­ishes ex­cess body heat. See swis­so­tel.com/ ho­tels/sin­ga­pore-mer­chant-court.

Syd­ney, Yanko Jin­dalee: The un­usual name orig­i­nates from Aus­tralia’s North­ern Ter­ri­tory and means run­ning wa­ter on skin, and all in­gre­di­ents used in the treat­ment are na­tive. Over 75 min­utes at The Dar­ling Spa, Aus­tralian na­tive aro­matic oils are blended with desert salts to leave your skin clean and pu­ri­fied. After a warm wa­ter mas­sage, cherry alder body lo­tion is ap­plied to smooth the skin. There’s also a scalp mas­sage with a quan­dong-in­fused hair mask.
