A spa is one place where Mum can switch off and be pampered like nowhere else. Extending over a whopping 24,000 sq ft. g.spa is one of the largest spas in Singapore and in their own words: is a “spa that never sleeps”, offering 24 hour service.
Just 10 minutes away from the heart of the city, adorned with lush décor and completed with reinvigorating facilities like hot pools, cold pools, steam baths and saunas, crowning it off with a wide array of gourmet dishes and healthy fruit juices; g.spa indulgence go beyond traditional massage treatments and soothing facials. We like the look of the couples treatments, but let’s be honest Mums, Mother’s Day’s the perfect excuse to get some alone-time, so we’d go for the Gateway To Vitality rub down to restore energy flows.
