Six Senses Maxwell launches spa pods

09 Jul 2019
The newly opened Six Senses Maxwell in Singapore has introduced five spa pods and two relaxation rooms designed to be an urban sanctuary amid Singapore’s hustle and bustle.

“Created in line with the brand’s commitment to incorporating wellness into each guest experience, the spa pods bring globally celebrated Six Senses rituals to Singapore’s urban community. Our wellness partners have put together a menu of treatments and activities which deliver positive and lasting benefits so that every guest finds harmony and balance from the inside out,” said Murray Aitken, general manager of Six Senses Singapore.

Located on the fourth floor of Six Senses Maxwell, the spa pods and relaxation rooms are decorated and furnished in line with the property’s 19th century aesthetics and a stylish, modern twist. Guests can look forward to both traditional and innovative wellness experiences, from Six Senses Signature Massages to locally-inspired rituals, targeted therapies and functional fitness.

Featuring Traditional Chinese Medicine (TCM) and massage techniques, the new Locally-Inspired Wellness Retreat is a treatment lasting two hours 15 minutes priced at US$220. The experience starts with a consultation with seasoned practitioners from a local full-service TCM clinic, followed by an insightful conversation and wellness recommendations.

Following the consultation, a ritual with warm amethyst crystals is designed to reduce daily stress and tension starting with a back, neck and shoulders massage. The journey continues with an orchid-scented Himalayan salt scrub, a rose body mask and a lifting facial massage and concludes with a wellness lunch at either Yellow Pot Chinese Restaurant or Cook & Tras Social Library.

Those looking to activate their natural healing powers and give their immune system a boost may opt for the Cleansing Retreat for two hours and 30 minutes for US$ 258. It incorporates body and facial treatments infused with vitamin C, jasmine, green coffee and chilli to spring clean the whole system. This retreat also includes a detoxifying drink, yoga and a wellness lunch at either Yellow Pot Chinese Restaurant or Cook & Tras Social Library.

Using organic and sustainable products from The Organic Pharmacy, the Detox Vital is designed to boost circulation and cleanse the body through a seaweed, eucalyptus and sea salt scrub followed by a purifying mud wrap.

A rebalancing session of yoga or meditation is also available under an old, large Angsana tree with Heritage Tree status. Coupled with one of seven Six Senses Signature Massages, the noise of the busy streets disappears as guests settle back and therapists guide them through moments of mindfulness, encouraging the brain to release feel-good chemicals and relieving any aches and pains.

Afterwards, guests can lie back into a So-Sound Legato Healing Lounger and let healing sound vibrations ease away any stress and tension while rebalancing and improving circulation, brainwaves and blood pressure.
