    Default any nice places to pamper yourself? spa?

    hi people,

    me and my wife company is having forced shutdown over the christmas week. I am wondering what is there to do during this week in singapore. As we have a newborn baby, cannot go overseas

    is there any nice spas in singapore to go as a couple for massage, relaxing, etc?

    I am thinking about bintan club med. Is it worth it to go club med at bintan? never been to a club med before.

    Was it? I thought Bintan is under indonesia. Anyway club med is nice, but abit expensive.
    it's pure relax beach resort type. Never tried the spa, so can't help on there.

    There's no promo current, so u wanna consider other places under club med?:http://www.expatriatetravel.com/late..._promotion.htm

    This shld be the spa package there:

    Me not spa expert, but heck, my 2 cents here. Just returned from a trip to Batam for a relaxing spa holiday (cheap, but not that fantastic). But you can buy more add-on services there than here.

    So far only tried St Gregory's Spa and The Retreat Spa at Changi. St Gregory's is good, professional service, though Singapore spas are expensive by Indonesian standards. Your experience depends heavily on the spa therapist assigned to you. So, be aware you get what you pay for... and some spa operators tend to be heavy handed on selling services/products. Spoils the spa experience for me in my opinion.

    As for couple spas, my experience is that women enjoy it more than men. If you have never experienced a full body massage before, better ask for a light touch unless u love heavy kneading. Or just send your wife for the massage, and you enjoy a jacuzzi or a sauna. :P

    So far my best experience with spas has been in Bali. Great full body massage and facials, wish I could do it every day there!
