ELLE Beauty Black Book: Pampering Treats

Our beauty director shares her favourite places to unwind


For Full Body Massage
Try Sole Service
Why I Love It A mobile massage service that comes to your doorstep, which is truly the best thing ever! The therapist brings a bed, towels and even the oils, so all you have to do is provide the space. The hours are till midnight, so I usually ask for the last appointment, which is about 10pm, so all I need to do after is roll into bed and drift off to dreamland. While the massages offered are either a Swedish or Deep Tissue massage, I prefer to let the therapist customise something for me depending on how tight and sore my muscles are.

For An Indulgent Pampering
Resorts World Sentosa, 6577-8880.
Why I Love It Located in Sentosa, it makes you feel like you’re not in Singapore anymore, even if it’s just for a few hours. The gorgeous setting, luxurious facilities (think onsen pools set in nature) and top rated treatments will leave you feeling super relaxed and recharged. My personal favourite is the Ultimate Hamman Ritual that incorporates a traditional hamman bath together with a full body massage for the smoothest, softest skin ever. Bliss.


For Nail Art
Try Kiyone + LIM
#02-21 Orchard Central, 6834-3193.
Why I Love It It’s an open secret that I love my nail art, and this is my go-to place right now. I am very particular about my nail art — none of those 3D flowers thank you very much, so what I like about this place is how they customise the design to what you want whether it’s something more kawaii or edgy or fashion-forward. While all the girls are great, I always look for Natsumi Iwamuro. She’s got mad skills and her intricate designs have won rave compliments from all my friends each time I get something done.


For Smooth Feet
Try Vedure MediBoutique
#04-06 Wheelock Place, 6732-6448
Why I Love It Whenever my feet are in need of some TLC, this is where I head. And my all-time favourite treatment is the Sakura Sake spa pedicure. Using products from Fresh like the Sake Bath, Brown Sugar Body Polish and Rice Dry Oil, your feet are scrubbed and massaged till you feel renewed once more. Ask for therapists Jamie or Fennie and let them work their expert hands on you.
