A couple’s spa day - it’s undeniably one of the best ways to relax those aching, tired muscles, whilst in the company of your other half. To help you both discover that 'me time', we’ve rounded up eight spas in Singapore – the best, no less – that offer couple treatments.
1. Aramsa Spa
Tucked within the lush greenery of Bishan Park II, the category 1 spa is the destination to go to if you want a day packed with relaxation – they offer yoga classes and have a hair salon onsite too. The treatment rooms are designed with its surrounding flora kept in mind, so you can harmonise with nature once more.
The “Weekday Couple Escape” treatment entitles you and your partner to two hours and a half of relaxation (on a weekday of course), with the help of one of its five spa packages – Botanical Energy, Down To Earth, Aramsa Recharge, Exotic Coconut Treat, Tropical Java Lulur. Each package presents its own benefits, but we recommend Down To Earth if what you need is to re-energise, or Botanical Energy to wind down and relax your muscles.
Aramsa is also offering an exclusive National Day treatment (Perfect Harmony Package) that brings together massage techniques from different ethnicities. You and your partner will first receive a Malay lulur scrub, followed by the Aramsa touch body massage and Chinese cup gliding. To end off, you’ll get an oh-so-dreamy Indian head massage. After two and a half hours in eden, you’ll be nothing short of pampered.
Weekday Couple Escape, $388/ couple; Perfect Harmony Package, $388/ couple.

If you’d like a little more pampering, go for the Indulgence Treatment. The comprehensive 120-minute treatment includes an Aromatic Bliss Body Massage and Detoxifying Treatment.

Whisking you away to the (not so) far away land of Japan is Ikeda Spa Prestige, the place to drown yourself in a serene and lavish oasis. At the luxurious five-star spa destination, you’ll be able to restore balance to your mind, soul and body – be it at the onsen public bathhouse (the first of its kind in Singapore) or at the VIP couple suite. And when we say VIP, we mean really VIP.
The suites are designed with privacy in mind. Each one has a private onsen bath under a (digital) starry sky and you can catch the sun set along the Clarke Quay skyline as you unwind at the private tatami relaxation corner. The interiors stay true to its Japanese roots with a clean, minimalist look to it.
Ikeda’s couple treatment is just as lavish – the Ever After Honeymoon puts an end to all your wedding stress or drama (after the big day itself). The treatment starts off with you picking the soothing music, then loosening up your body with a lovely 30-minute red rose couple onsen bath. Next, you’ll have a body scrub of your choice for 30 minutes, a 60-minute zen candle sakura massage and a Japanese tea ceremony – all from the comfort of one room. Is it pricey? Definitely.

Auriga offers three different treatment options – Honey Moon, P.S I Love You and Senja Sunyi Ritual. For a short but still relaxing session, choose P.S I Love You, which offers you and your partner just enough of what’s needed to wind down for 165 minutes – a foot scrub, full body massage and sensual rose bath. If you’re willing to splurge some cash for a few hours of extra pampering, go for Honey Moon, a purely indulgent, 4 hour treatment. You’ll both be given a body scrub, body wrap (with hair & scalp treatment), a massage, facial mask and relaxing bath to end off the experience.

Hidden within the nostalgic shophouses of Tiong Bahru is Nimble Knead, a truly one-of-a-kind spa. Just how unique could it be? Unlike other spas, Nimble Knead features an industrial interior that we’re kind of loving. Each treatment room is a specially designed… shipping container! Fret not, it still looks good and more importantly, you get a great pamper sesh at the end of the day that’ll ease your soul so that your mind is adrift. And like Nimble Knead says, “shipping is free”.
You’ll start off with either a 60 or 90-minute massage of your choice – pick from Thai Thai Aroma, Destination Bali, Swede and Sassy, or A Thousand Smiles in the Rising Sun. As the name suggests, each massage uses techniques from the different ethnicities. Then for 45 minutes, you’ll have a body scrub to polish your skin. You can choose to add on a 45-minute body mask but of course, for an additional cost. Afterwards, take a jacuzzi bath and sip some ginger tea in their little urban garden.
