Need a time out from the hustle and bustle of daily life? Consider checking yourself into a spa for a pampering retreat.
Leave your stress and aches at the door when you enter these havens of relaxation. From soaking in mineral baths to enjoying a full body massage, each one will leave you feeling recharged.
Calla Spa is an unexpected find in Suntec City.
You can’t tell from the outside, but this urban retreat sprawls across an area of 10,000 sq ft. Opened in early 2016, it’s a one-stop wellness spa that offers soothing massages, mineral baths and even treatment areas that are divided by gender.
Experience: If you’re looking to treat yourself after a long day at work or busy afternoon shopping, stop by for an invigorating Foot Reflexology session. Traditional foot reflexology works on the principle that all the organs in the body are connected to reflex points found on our feet. Massaging them helps to restore balance and improve overall well-being. As you sit back and let the therapist work his magic, you have the option of watching a show on the retractable TV, charging up your iPhone or taking a quick snooze on the plush chair. The lounge is large, spacious and houses up to 24 chairs for total relaxation.
Good-to-know: Guests can enjoy a leisurely meal at the bistro on-the-house before or after their treatments.
Price: From $138 for a 60-minute treatment.
#01-500–504 Suntec City Mall Tower 2, North Wing, 3 Temasek Boulevard.
