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.
