We did at staycation at Shangri-La’s Rasa Sentosa Resort & Spa earlier this year and we saw our staycation then as a family oriented one with many facilities that catered to the kids. But with the launch of the Singapore Massage, Chi The Spa at Rasa Sentosa also opened another facet of the hotel, catering to couples who seek a luxurious retreat.

The Singapore Massage is the first of its kind in Singapore which features different massage techniques from the Chinese (use of bamboo sticks to drain away muscle tensions), Malay (progressive massage of the abdomen that promotes lymph drainage – good for circulation and the digestive system) and Indian (elimination of body heat by stimulating foot reflex zones with Indian Kansu bowl) culture.

The VH brand has gotten the formula right for staycations in Singapore. With yet another 4 star hotel (Village Hotel Katong) located in the idyllic enclave of Katong, it offers staycationers (is that a new word that we’ve created?!) close proximity to famous food joints in Katong (think 328 Katong Laksa, Ampang Niang Tou Fu, Yong’s Teochew Kueh and Marine Parade Food Centre) as well as the rich heritage and culture (both colonial and peranakan) that the area is famous for.
