Bringing its globally trusted housing concept to Singapore, Oakwood Studios is injecting fun into the serviced apartment scene in the heart of the city.
When overworked urbanites reach the point of “I need a vacation,” it’s usually too late to book one. Skip the flight and sip martinis on a sun-bed at Capella Singapore instead. Three things take pride of place here: Colonial charm, tropical seclusion, and wellness in utmost luxury. Chill out by the cascading pools before having your Mediterranean breakfast at The Knolls. After that, enjoy post-lunch sessions at the spa, including the Auriga Detox Day treatment—a four-hour experience designed to rid the body of harmful toxins and stress through body brushing, a seaweed and lemon body scrub and wrap, a lymphatic drainage massage, and a deep cleansing facial. Things will get so relaxing, you’ll only remember your phone when it comes to snapping pictures of the tranquil surroundings and plush accommodations of the 112-key property, of which 38 are villas and seven are grand, contemporary manors.
Evenings are best spent at The Library for some quiet quality time with a good book and a night cap, but dancing till dawn is also an option at the nearby beach bars.
