Singapore’s Largest Luxury Spa Opens at Resorts World Sentosa

Resorts World Sentosa adds another world-class product to its offerings with the opening of ESPA, a 10,000 square meter luxury spa.  Set to open on 6 July 2012 at the tranquil western tip of the integrated resort, ESPA at Resorts World Sentosa (ESPA at RWS) will be the brand’s flagship spa in Asia and an
oasis for those wishing to escape from the city or taking time out from the resort’s attractions.

ESPA is the proud partner of luxury hotel groups such as Ritz-Carlton, Peninsula, One&Only and Leela Palaces, and owners and property companies within 55 countries to create some of the world’s finest spas. Founded in 1993 by renowned spa guru Susan Harmsworth MBE, ESPA’s holistic approach provides guests with a personalized spa journey using classic treatments that combine new and indigenous techniques with their signature natural products.

Susan Harmsworth MBE, CEO and Founder, ESPA said, “With ESPA at RWS, we are bringing 30 years of spa heritage and knowledge, spa operations and training expertise as well as award-winning products and
treatments to Singapore and Resorts World Sentosa.   It is ESPA’s largest spa in the region with 24 treatment rooms and a repertoire of treatments that pays homage to Singapore’s melting pot of cultures - all delivered with the best technology, treatments and therapists.”

“ESPA at RWS will offer a spa experience that is out of this world with Singapore’s first authentic Hammam,
onsen-style pools and other state-of the-art spa facilities. We are privileged to work with ESPA to create this exceptional spa, which together with ESPA’s spa expertise will help to elevate the spa scene in
Singapore,” said Ms Laura Vallati, General Manager, ESPA at RWS, Resorts World Sentosa.

“With ESPA at RWS, we created an oasis among a bustling and lively island environment. This gem of a spa is the perfect place to unwind, relax and forget time,” said Ms Vallati. “We carved out the spa journey for ESPA at RWS by focusing on ‘bringing the outdoors in’ through landscaped outdoor journeys and views of lush tropical forestry, combined with beautifully designed private and social spaces inside the spa, which will meet every guests’ expectation,” she added.

ESPA at RWS is spread across 10,000 square metres of manicured landscaped gardens, pools and ponds set against a backdrop of picturesque sea views and jungle covered hillsides – equivalent to one-third the size of the National Orchid Garden. Spa-goers can choose to have their treatments in 24 multi-functional treatment rooms with beautiful views, 2 Private Spa Suites overlooking the reflection pool and 2 Beach Villas with dramatic sea views.

Designed for total relaxation and rejuvenation, the spa grounds are dotted with spacious pre- and post treatment relaxation areas for guests to contemplate and meditate.  These include the sleep zone and social relaxation lounge with views of the reflection pool, vitality pools,  onsen-inspired pools and pavilions set in tropical gardens.  From their first step through the door, spa-goers will immerse in a tranquil environment that extends their spa experience beyond the treatments.

A key highlight guests can look forward to among its signature treatments is the first-in-Singapore authentic
Turkish Hammam.  Derived from the Arabic word meaning ‘heat’, hammam treatments are the age-old ritual of  cleansing and purification in traditional heated bathhouses of Morocco and Turkey that has gained popularity amongst spa enthusiasts. Using the traditional Kese mitt and black olive soap, a full-body foam massage and nourishing mud body mask, these treatments leave you energized and with silky smooth skin.

The spectacular spa environment also features various indoor and outdoor heat and water experiences with
separate areas for men and women.  Each section is equipped with its own vitality pool fitted with air and water massage jets, an icy plunge pool, a sauna with uninterrupted views over the pools and forest beyond, and walkways that converge at a Japanese onsen style pool offering views of the lush jungle-covered hillside.

In addition to a comprehensive menu of results-driven body treatments, facials and massages, ESPA at RWS provides a top-to-toe experience with a Nail Studio perfect for social gatherings; a fully-equipped gym; a studio for yoga, pilates and meditation; and The Tangerine Spa Café.
