The new spa at Singapore’s landmark Raffles Hotel has partnered with British product house ISUN, which specialises in gemstone-infused products, and Japanese skincare brand Mikimoto, the sister company to the famous cultured pearl business.
The iconic hotel recently completed a two-year multi-million dollar restoration, with design by Alexandra Champalimaud, during which accommodation was increased to 115 suites.
The spa is accessible to both hotel guests and the general public and the original design was implemented by Lindsay Madden-Nadeau, director of wellbeing for Accor’s Fairmont, Raffles and MGallery brands.
It’s located in the Raffles Arcade and home to five single treatment rooms, one couple’s room and one suite.
The four-person suite has been named The Gem to accentuate the partnerships and has its own separate treatment rooms and facilities with linen supplied by RKF.
Siti Mohd, Raffles spa manager says: “Gemstones have properties that facilitate relaxation and healing which ultimately enhances the treatment received by guests. Gemstone-infused massage oils are unrivalled in their abilities to enhance deep relaxation, mental strength and stability.
“We’re focusing on B2B offers such as opening up the spa for company events,” says Mohd, “As The Gem suite and the entire spa are available to be rented.
“We want to make our spa a social, relaxing and interactive space with a good balance between communal and private experiences.”
Other facilities also include an aromatic steamroom, ice fountain, sauna, a pool similar to an onsen and separate relaxation lounge areas for men and women.
