Launch of the award-winning spa completes the stunning Wellness Floor of Singapore’s first hotel-in-a-garden
Singapore, 11 April 2013 – The dedicated Wellness Floor on Level 5 of the iconic PARKROYAL on Pickering is now complete with the opening of the award-winning St. Gregory spa.
Featuring stunning city-wide views, PARKROYAL on Pickering’s Wellness Floor is a destination for guests and day visitors seeking an oasis in the heart of the central business district. Cleverly designed by architectural firm WOHA as an open floor, guests are able to experience a breath of fresh air above the bustle of the city, with the inviting infinity pool and Jacuzzi, bird-cage cabanas, 300m Garden Walk and glass-walled fitness centre. Surrounded by lush greenery and water, the St. Gregory spa completes the hotel’s holistic offering of wellness facilities.
The spa features four treatment rooms, including a luxurious couple’s suite with double Jacuzzi bath. Each room has been designed using a calming palate of colours, providing guests with a relaxing and rejuvenating retreat. Partially outdoor changing rooms with water features extend the experience, combining the Singapore tropical climate with stunning natural wood to create a sauna effect. St Gregory at PARKROYAL on Pickering offers a comprehensive suite of facial and body treatments including executive facials, aromatic baths, relaxing massages and holistic rituals. All treatments are performed using a range of exclusive Elemis and Thal’lion products.
The signature Elemis Well-Being Massage is a 75-minute full body massage that involves light body brushing to enhance the therapeutic effects of the massage oils and combines Eastern techniques in a series of movements for the face and body to refresh the spirit and strengthen vital energies. Guests may also opt for traditional Chinese medicine treatments such as the Tui Na Massage, an ancient Chinese therapy that combines massage and acupressure to stimulate key pressure points to enhance the flow of ‘Qi’ or vital energy, restoring balance in the body.
Guests will also be able to choose from an extensive selection of Executive Treatments designed for business travellers on the move or time-strapped executives in need of a power massage, such as the Jet Lag Relief spa ritual which includes an anti-stress massage, scalp massage and foot massage.
David Sullivan, General Manager of PARKROYAL on Pickering said, “We are very excited to complete our dedicated wellness space with the launch of St. Gregory, ensuring we offer the perfect urban sanctuary for our guests and visitors. St Gregory is a market pioneer renowned for its expertise in traditional healing therapies and treatment techniques from the East and the West, which is aligned with our business philosophy of providing genuine and authentic local experiences, reflective of Singapore’s cosmopolitan landscape.”
