Spanning 1213 sq. m on the 55th floor of the iconic Marina Bay Sands, the stunning Banyan Tree Spa offers a tranquil respite from the bustling world below. Gorgeous interior designs reflect a tropical garden theme, with a striking wooden tree sculpture at the centre of the reception area.
There is a truly peaceful energy here and I feel it immediately as I am warmly welcomed with an herbal beverage, before my 60-minute full body massage. There are five styles to choose from and I’ve opted for the ‘Gentle Touch’, a pampering, soft-to-medium pressure massage.
My therapist begins with a relaxing foot bath before the blissful massage commences. The pressure is ideal as my therapist expertly massages my weary muscles with an intuitive combination of long, sweeping strokes and just the right amount of thumb pressure to loosen me up.
The hour flies by and before I know it, I am enjoying a refreshing tea and healthy snacks in the beautiful post-treatment Tea Lounge, taking in sweeping views from the surrounding floor to ceiling windows. It’s not hard to see why the award-winning Banyan Tree Spa brand is renowned as one of the best in the world, and the Banyan Tree Spa at Marina Bay Sands is certainly in a league of its own.
