    For a hospitality brand that had embraced wellness long before wellness became a buzzword in the industry, the arrival of Six Senses in Singapore – sans its signature spa – left fans slightly forlorn. However, that’s set to change now that the brand has brought its spa experience right into the heart of the city in the form of cosy spa pods sited at its Maxwell property.

    Here, darkened treatment rooms gently lit by mood lights block out the bustle of the city. Void of external stimuli, relaxation comes easy. Besides a range of signature massages and body treatments that cut across all 37 Six Senses spas, the spa offers a Vanda “Miss Joaquim” ritual that’s unique to Singapore.

    The 120-minute affair begins with a massage focused on the neck, back, and shoulders, where Amethyst crystal balls are used to further deepen the pressure on each stroke applied by the therapist. In keeping with the floral-themed moniker of the treatment, the massage features the use of The Organic Pharmacy’s rose and jasmine body oil. An invigorating body scrubs follows, this time using an in-house concoction of orchid oil and himalayan pink salt. After a warm shower in the en-suite bathroom, you are then cocooned in a purifying mud wrap while a slim bamboo rod rolls over the face in an upward motion, helping to relieve any tension in the facial muscles – an oft-overlooked area when it comes to massages.

    The session concludes with a 15-minute repose in the relaxation pod, a luxe cocoon of a room decorated with silk wallpaper by famed interior designer Jacques Garcia. Here, red dates and grapes are served alongside a pot of ginger tea, snacks that you can nibble on while you recline on a custom-made lounger that vibrates to a soundtrack of your choice – be it a chorus of Tibetan singing bowls or birdsong in the forest.

    Spa pods at Six Senses Maxwell open daily from 11am to 8pm. 2 Cook Street, Singapore 078857. Tel: 6914-1410.
