BEST COUPLE’S SPA EXPERIENCE
EDITORS’ CHOICE AND READERS’ CHOICE: Cello Concerto
($1035.76 for 60min)
This pampering session in the opulent Ritz-Carlton Spa Suite included a live cello performance of Mozart and Debussy pieces. Amazingly, the therapist’s strokes synchronised with the music – they became faster and lighter when the music picked up pace, and were slower and deeper with the lulls. Post-massage, we hopped into a private jacuzzi for half an hour of us-time.

BEST RELAXING RITUAL
EDITORS’ CHOICE AND READERS’ CHOICE: Royal Banyan
($624 for 150min)
Get ready to be lulled into the zen zone with the pampering treats – a body scrub, face-body massages – that make up this spa ritual, enjoyed in soothing, wood-accented environs. The body massage, which features a warm herbal pouch dipped in sesame oil, aims to improve blood circulation while working out all the kinks in the muscles.

BEST PAMPERING SPA EXPERIENCE
EDITORS’ CHOICE: Full Moon. The Height.
($517.88 for 180min)
Stop and smell the roses – and we mean that literally. This treatment draws on the ﬂower’s much-vaunted scent, which many believe elevates the mood and invokes positive thoughts. Rose oil on our feet; a rose-oil-infused exfoliating salt; a rose wrap; a lymphatic facial using rose crystals – how much more luxurious can your day at the spa get?
Auriga Spa, Level 1 Capella Singapore (tel: 6591-5023)
READERS’ CHOICE: My 4-in-1 Floral Body Spa Indulgence
($168 for 75min)
This begins with a back scrub and follows with a lava hot stone therapy to eliminate the stiffness in the neck and back that afflicts many who are desk-bound. Also on the cards: a full-body massage, which rejuvenates tired muscles, and a Crystal Eye Massage, which reduces puffiness and alleviates strained eyes. We dozed off several times during the session.
