Getaways to Bintan are about to get even better with soothing spa packages that rejuvenate your body and soul
Sip on fresh juice, wriggle your toes in the sand and listen to the sound of waves crashing gently onto shore. For many Singaporeans, Bintan is a popular choice for a relaxing beach holiday.
And now, you can get even more out of your retreat, by capping off your stay with one of Banyan Tree’s spa packages, available at Banyan Tree Spa Bintan and Angsana Spa Bintan.
Treatment of tradition
Nestled within the lush and natural beauty of Bintan’s flora, Banyan Tree Spa is accessible by a one-hour high-speed catamaran ride from Singapore. It is an intimate and serene sanctuary surrounded by a tropical garden — the perfect haven for physical and spiritual rejuvenation.
Choose between a private spa pavilion and a spa suite, where you will be pampered and recharged with the signature Royal Banyan treatment.
This indulgent experience features the Royal Banyan Herbal Pouch Massage, where your body will be soothed by warm sesame oil, complemented by East-meets-West massage techniques. (See side story for exclusive Weekender promotion.)
The Royal Banyan treatment is said to greatly improve blood circulation and relieve muscular tension — perfect for stressed out bodies in need of a break.
If this is your first visit to Banyan Tree Spa, you can also consider the Harmony Banyan, a massage where two adept therapists work in unison to give your body the ultimate invigorating experience.
New-age fusion therapy
Distilling the best of Banyan Tree Spa, Angsana Spa Bintan is a contemporary spa that offers massage treatments which combine a refreshing blend of aromatherapy and sense of touch to recharge the body, mind and spirit.
Set amid the picturesque Tanjung Said Bay, Angsana Spa places special emphasis on the use of natural ingredients such as flowers and fruits native to the region, making for a wholesome and authentic Bintan spa experience.
If you and your travel companions are looking to indulge in holistic treatments, the Angsana Spa’s Duet package is your best choice. One of its highlights is the flower petal body polish, which incorporates fresh and fragrant petals into a full body scrub.
For the ladies, the Duet package also treats you to the signature soothing Angsana Massage. Feel the therapist work on your body’s key pressure points, as your inner “qi” (energy) is strengthened, inducing deep relaxation, tension relief and better blood circulation.
Men will be pampered with the Fusion Massage, which blends Thai and Swedish techniques to ease the muscles and energise the body.
A 30-minute face refresher brings the indulgent spa experience to a close, leaving you recharged and ready to enjoy the rest of your Bintan getaway.
