Due to my hectic work schedule, I was unable to go for a short getaway overseas with my girl friend for our one-year anniversary celebration. We tried searching for a short trip to Bintan's Banyan Trees and MediSpa, but the rates are far too expensive, especially when we are talking about peak holidays season. Instead, we switched our plan to a staycation at Arama Sanctuary in Sentosa and indulge ourselves with a relaxing massage treat at Spa Luna.
We pre-booked a late afternoon session at Spa Luna and we headed towards the spa upon our check in at Amara Sanctuary. Though it was within walking distance in the premises, it actually took us quite a while to figure our way there. We were caught by surprise on our first step into the spa's reception as it appears it to us more like a gym due to the loud music blasting upstairs. Also, at the same time, there isn't any sight of a receptionist at the counter hence we rang the bell for assistance. Luckily, it did not took us quite long for the receptionist to come out and attend to us. As usual, we get to choose the massage we needed out from their menu and the receptionist gave us a brief introduction and explanatory details on their massage services. My girl friend went for the 60 minutes swedish massage while I opted for a 60 minutes deep tissue massage. we were ushered to the waiting area while the masseurs prepare our rooms. As the spa is opened newly, they have a promotion of 30 minutes steam bath.
Soon after, we were finally lying on our well laid, nicely decorated bed for the pampering massage ! "Lights dim down please.. air-con not too cold and mid-level strength on the strokes of massage please" All these were the replies given to the masseurs asking on our preferences before they proceed to our massage. Isn't it wonderful as we were just being spoiled for choices and good services ? Overall, the skills of the masseurs were above satisfactory. Services from the staff were good as well.
However, as much as we disfavor the idea leaving, we still got to lift out butts up from the cushy velvet sofa for our dinner appointment at another venue. Aw...
Upon making payment at the counter, feedbacks were being asked. Masseurs were there as well to say adios to us and of course giving thanks on our gracious visit to their place.
In conclusion, the skills of the masseurs were good. Staffs were polite, hospitable and well-mannered. I might pay them another visit for the gratifying experience, if I were to be back for a staycation at Amara Sanctuary Resort Sentosa again.
