Estheva Spa within Raffles Hotel will make your holiday wishes come true with their pioneering chocolate spa treatments!
Whether you’ve been naughty or nice this year girls, we think you probably deserve a little pampering. For those with a sweet tooth (and who doesn’t love chocolate?) we suggest going for one of two festive season spa indulgences at Estheva Spa within Raffles Hotel.
Known for pioneering the use of pure chocolate in spa treatments in Singapore (it contains four times the antioxidants or green tea, along with high levels of phenolic compounds that combat free radicals and reduce the effects of aging, dontcha know!), Estheva is offering two special festive treatments in December only that any girl would be lucky to receive: “Christmas Magic Scrub” with Massage, and the “Choc-Honey & Mint Christmas Ritual”.
Both treatments are deliciously decadent, and yet 100% calorie-free (can’t say the same for the special holiday drinks at Starbucks!).
A luxurious 110 minutes of treatments, the “Christmas Magic Scrub” offers a choice of 12 different scrub scents suitable to every mood:
Citrus Fruits Scrub – Uplifting
Eucalyptus Ginger Scrub – Circulation Stimulating
Ginseng Energising Scrub – Invigorating
Peppermint Chocolate Scrub – Luxurious Rejuvenation
Lemon Salt Scrub – Radiance
Lotus Fine Scrub – Nourishing
Marine Algae Scrub – Purifying
Mother-of-Pearl Scrub – Silky Smooth Skin
Rose Mint Scrub – Skin Toning
Sweet Orange Scrub – De-stressing
Tea Tree Scrub – Cleansing
Peppermint Honey Scrub – Healing and Rejuvenating Skin
Following a head-to-toe scrub that will invigorate the senses and slough away dead skin cells, you’ll also get a personalised massage tailored to your body’s needs. Check out Estheva’s extensive list of innovative massage options to see just how incredibly skilled their therapists are! The Christmas Magic Scrub is priced at $210++.
If you really want to make a day of it, take things up a notch with the “Choc-Honey & Mint Christmas Ritual”. I was lucky enough to experience this myself, and besides the fact that it was one level of relaxation bliss after another, it was worth it simply because I left smelling like freshly baked brownies!
The treatment begins with a Peppermint Honey Scrub to exfoliate, heal and hydrate the skin. I can attest that the therapists are meticulous – they don’t miss one square inch! Skin is amazingly silky smooth afterwards. And it’s only the beginning!
Next up, the therapist provides a full body massage using 100% pure cocoa essence, which not only hydrates and smoothes the skin, but has been proven to reduce the effects of aging and protect body tissue from the effects of metabolic waste.
Once you’re covered in chocolate from the neck down, the therapist provides a body wrap to ensure that all its amazing properties properly soak in (you smell pretty amazing, too). This was literally like sleeping in a chocolate cloud – certainly among the most blissful 20 minutes of my life.
When the treatment’s over (don’t worry, Estheva’s luxurious spa suites feature lovely showers too), you’re given the choice of peppermint honey tea or peppermint hot chocolate. Both are downright amazing!
The “Choc-Honey & Mint Christmas Ritual” is priced at $360++ and lasts for 2 hours and 40 minutes, so we suggest making a day of it with a spot of shopping or perhaps lunch or afternoon tea with your girlfriends afterwards. This is definitely one you’ll want to drop hints about to your loved ones!
Estheva Spa could not be more central, and yet its location across from the Raffles Lawn is surprisingly green and tranquil – like a small piece of the English countryside transported to central Singapore. And speaking of convenience, if you’re looking to gift one of these treatments to a lucky friend (or want to drop hints to the boyfriend with the click of a mouse), Estheva even offers e-voucher gift cards!
Why not give the gift of wellness (and deep satisfaction) this Christmas?
Estheva Spa’s festive treatments are available through 31 December, 2015. The Christmas Magic Scrub” with Massage is $210++, and the “Choc-Honey & Mint Christmas Ritual” is $360++.
