The Ritz-Carlton, Singapore

Designed to enliven the senses through evoking the true essence of the ocean and its healing benefits, guests can look forward to a multi-sensory experience that will immerse them in a timeless spa journey at The Ritz-Carlton, Millenia Singapore. 

The calming sounds of trickling water greets guests as they enter the spa, before they are warmly welcomed by a therapist and invited to discover the marine inspired elements of the spa. The tree bark inspired spa corridor that leads to the treatment rooms is characterised by stunning blue oyster glass. Different types of exotic seaweeds, prized for their rejuvenating properties on the skin, give each treatment room its identity.

Prior to the commencement of each treatment, our therapists will connect with guests to discover their needs and to personalise the treatment process. The pre-treatment ritual involves a breathing exercise with selected essentials oils, and a relaxing foot ritual. Post-treatment, guests are invited to awaken through mediated breathing exercises and a hand ritual, before a fond farewell is extended.

Our two signature spa experiences;  

  • ESPA Indulgence – performed by two therapists, this unique sensory journey combines the ESPA Signature facial with a pampering foot massage.
  • Cello Concerto – inspired by the love for classical music, this body massage is harmoniously synchronised with ‘live’ melodies played by a cellist.

Gentlemen can look forward to a curated selection of massages and facials specially designed with them in mind. At Le Salon Rose, this social space for urbanites offers bespoke manicures and pedicures, and can be booked exclusively for a private soiree with friends, a girls’ night out, or even a bridal spa party. Of the 10 treatment rooms, the indulgent Ritz-Carlton Spa Suite offers couples an unparalleled romantic long bath and hydro-jets experience following their treatment of choice. Ladies can look forward to a mineral pool that soothes and heals the body, while both his and her locker rooms offer hydro-jet jacuzzis, steam rooms, saunas, shower facilities, and relaxation rooms with Zero Gravity recliners.
