Tem­po­ral es­cape

Men's Folio (Singapore) - - Features -

Es­cap­ing to an ex­otic des­ti­na­tion may sound tempt­ing, but some of us do not have the lux­ury of time to travel. For the time-strapped ur­ban­ite, a re­ju­ve­nat­ing mas­sage at a spa might just be the ticket to re­lax­ation.

Ikeda Spa may be con­ve­niently lo­cated at Bukit Timah, but step into its taste­fully ap­pointed in­te­rior, and you’ll be for­given for think­ing that you’ve ar­rived at a Ryokan in Ky­oto. De­signed with bal­ance and sim­plic­ity in mind, it also houses a Ja­panese rock garden where you can in­dulge in a sim­ple tea cer­e­mony to awaken the Zen master in you.

Of course, the treat­ments of­fered are in­spired by the mul­ti­fac­eted Ja­panese cul­ture, and in­clude the Ikeda mas­sage with heated vol­canic rocks, Hi­nok­iburo bath, and the award-win­ning Geisha or­ganic fa­cial.
