Having a hectic work week and need a bit of self-love? Damai Spa & Fitness Centre is just the spot. We recently discovered this chic wellness sanctuary in the Grand Hyatt Singapore and are already planning our next visit. This elegant sanctuary has everything you need to rejuvenate the body and mind including a serene spa offering soothing body and beauty treatments, a sleek gym where you can tone up and trim down, plus access to a stunning pool and gourmet cuisine in a beautiful garden setting. And best of all, you don’t need to be a hotel guest to indulge in all they offer. Just sign up for a membership and get access to their beautiful facilities and discounts on treatments.
We recently visited Damai Spa & Fitness Centre for a bit of pampering on a Sunday morning, and we honestly wish that all Sundays could be like this. We opted for the 90-minute personalised massage with Damai signature oil. Each custom-made oil is designed for specific purpose like the Revive blend for better blood circulation and the Renew blend for an extra boost of energy. We opted for the Calm blend with patchouli, lavender and ylang ylang.
Next the spa therapist led us to beautiful massage rooms equipped with their own bathrooms, changing rooms and showers, and we settled in for a luxurious salt foot scrub followed by a massage that was pure bliss. The aromas from the oil put us right at ease, and the therapists were happy to concentrate on particular problem areas. We suggest adding a facial treatment to your experience because Damai is now using luxurious Kerstin Florian products made with mineral-rich water, moor mud and botanical ingredients that help smooth and soften skin.
If you feel like you need to burn off a bit of stress either before or after your spa treatment, swing by the state-of-the-art gym. The equipment is second to none and the exclusive location inside the hotel means that you might just have the machines all to yourself. Adding to the experience is the Technogym® Wellness System, an easy-to-use device that guides you through your workout by letting you know how much weight to use for strength exercises and how many reps to do. You can also store data from the machines like kilometres travelled and calories burned.
Another big bonus for us is that members at Damai have access to the resort’s gorgeous swimming pool and Oasis Restaurant, a courtyard eatery decked out in lush greenery and tropical flowers. Have a dip in the outdoor pool, then grab a seat on the breezy patio and fuel up on healthy fare like the roast pumpkin salad and kale with tabbouleh. You can also treat yourself to something a bit more indulgent like a hearty burger. We’re huge fans of Oasis’ awesome BBQ spreadsthat take place every evening, especially their weekend-exclusive BBQ buffet on Fridays and Saturdays.
Insiders tip: Damai Spa & Fitness Centre has a range of enticing packages that include exclusive access to the spa , gym and pool, plus extras like guest passes for friends and discounts on spa treatments and meals at Oasis Restaurant. Read more about membership and packages here.
