In these stressful times, putting a focus on our health - both mental and physical - has become of paramount importance. Given travel might not be for a while, a wellness staycation in Singapore might just be the kind of break we need.
Embark on a guided wellness retreat presented by Grand Hyatt Singapore and Kydra, a popular activewear brand of Singapore. This wellness-driven retreat includes a two night's stay at the Grand Deluxe Room (Junior Suite) and a line-up of guided activities, wellness treatments and nutritional meals to make you feel recharged by the end of the experience.
Personalised 60-min Body Treatment at Damai Spa
Nestled within lush greenery away from the hustle and bustle of Scotts Road, Damai Spa is Grand Hyatt Singapore’s luxury spa offering various wellness treatments. The recharge retreat includes a 60-min personalised body treatment that begins with a foot soak, and a sensory test to assess the Damai Signature Blend that your body needs the most. Created by Damai Spa’s therapist, you can choose from four Damai Signature Blends – Calm, Revive, Healing, and Renew – to go with a Swedish, Aromatherapy or Balinese massage. Simply tell your therapist which parts of your body to focus on and let the relaxing session begin.
In addition, you get access to the jacuzzi, steam room, and sauna at Damai Spa, as well as other facilities such as the swimming pool and fitness gym. So don't forget to pack that swimwear!
