WHAT Open up to 20 hours a day, the oriental-themed spa offers full-body massages, foot reflexology, body scrubs, massage boosters like aromatherapy oils from Mt Sapola, and Traditional Chinese Medicine treatments like ba guan and gua sha therapies. The Oriental Body Massage is an oil-based treatment focusing on acupuncture points to loosen strained muscles, improve circulation and relieve pain.

REVIEW “The massage was super therapeutic. My therapist, Yan, could identify the problem areas on my body and even gave me tips to enhance recovery. After the 90-minute session, I felt relaxed and less fatigued. My shoulder muscles ached for two days after, like Yan said they would.

I was pleasantly surprised to see an air purifier in my treatment room – I haven’t seen that at other spas before. Every room comes with shower facilities so you don’t have to pop in and out of treatment rooms.

Also, you will enjoy your treatments in peace – you won’t hear therapists talking loudly outside your treatment room during their breaks as they have a designated relaxation area located on a different floor.” – Simone
