Aramsa Spa Review

After receiving a massage in the indulgent Aramsa Garden Spa (Aramsa, The Garden Spa) I would like to tell you about it. Inspired by Bali, here there are spacious grounds surrounded by lush greenery which I never imagined could exist in Singapore. With healing spaces where you can forget all about the hustle and bustle of the city, it’s not an exaggeration to say this spa is almost like a resort hotel. From the plants in the courtyard to the delightful fish swimming in the pond, everything seems so inviting, as if saying "Welcome to our spa".

Firstly, I’ll talk a little about the reception; you’ll be guided to the dressing room and given a gown to change into. From there, you’ll be taken to the waiting area where you can indulge yourself a little with some tea and cookies. Then, your personal masseuse will be introduced to you.

According to the spa owner, the masseuse working at the spa are only those who have at least 5 years of experience and have also passed this spa’s own strict test. By the way, the spa’s owner is none other than former model and Singaporean celebrity Jazreel Low. As a former model, she has a particular interest in beauty and health matters. She’s a super business woman, beautiful, with charming smile which attracts people instantly.

Walking from the waiting room to the massage room, seeing the size of the entire spa facilities again can feel a little overwhelming. There seems to be about 20 massage rooms in all, but you can see at a glance that each was designed with more than enough space.

When entering the room, one becomes enveloped in the scent of gentle aromas. Each room has a courtyard where you can enjoy your own little garden. The attention to detail can be seen in everything from the interior, lighting, sheets and towels right down to the aromas floating in the air.

To begin with, sitting in a chair with my feet dipped in a warm water basin, the masseuse carefully washes my feet. Following that, she presents me with a choice of three oils to use in my massage. I decide upon the lavender one, known for its relaxing effect.

Thanks to the pre-massage consultation, the massage I’m given is thoroughly satisfying. Having received massages in salons and hotels, not only in Singapore but all over the world, I can say that the treatment received here from her is very professional.

From the time I entered the reception to when I left the spa, I was met with consistent "hospitality", with the massage along right body meridian.  It was truly relaxing and altogether a wonderful experience. There’s no doubt that it must be Singapore's top aesthetic salon in terms of atmosphere, customer service and of course treatment. It was such a relaxing experience that it could even be described as unforgettable.

 

Review Hospitality  ★★★★★
Massage Skill  ★★★★★
Atmosphere and Hygiene ★★★★★

My Comments

It’s rare in Singapore to find an salon with such thorough hospitality. Receiving a massage in such a spacious area, surrounded by such lush greenery makes me feel very exclusive. I found this is the best place for couple spa with your husband, mom, sister or besties. Here you can find great service and wonderful atmosphere with such capable masseuse - and yet it’s still affordable. I think I would like to go to their nail salon and their hair salon attached to this spa. Access isn’t too difficult, about $10 dollars by taxi from Orchard. There’s also a bus stop located just out in front.

About Nilufer Tea

It’s also beneficial for your body, delicious to drink, just simply looking at it will make you feel better, thanks to the concept that herbal tea can be enjoyed by each of your five senses; not to mention the herbs are carefully packed, allowing you to make use of their natural shape.
As our closest collaborations are mainly with the farmers of Setouchi, we use only carefully selected pesticide-free organic herbs.

Through herbal tea, we provide not only the health and beauty benefits they bring but also deliver to the world a product which can tell both stories of local challenges (such as local unemployment and rural depopulation) together with stories of the blissfulness of Setouchi.
The concept is that of a small bouquet.
On pouring hot water into a glass pot, it appears as if the herbs are playfully dancing. We wish to convey our feeling of "delivering little surprises and happiness in regular daily life". Now, whose cheery face would you like to see? May our herbal tea make you and those dearest to you smile. We hope you will consider it a gift for true friends and loved ones or as a treat for yourself, all while spreading word of the charms of Setouchi.

Starting October 17, 2017, we offer tea produced by Nilufer Tea, served on the small luxury liner 'Ganzu', which can be enjoyed from a price of 400,000 to 1,000,000 yen per room per night, all while taking in views of the Seto Inland Sea.

I get asked alot why I'm always laughing or smiling and just appear so carefree these days. Well, we all have our own problems but it is how we choose to react to it that makes us who we are. And let's be honest, happiness is not given. I choose to be happy because life's too short to mull over things that won't matter in the end. To be able to wake up each day and see my loved ones makes me happy. So does having enough food and a shelter over my head. It's not how much we have but how much we enjoy that makes us happy.
