Renowned as Singapore’s first Japanese spa, Ikeda Spa is a serene retreat that feels just like a Japanese hot spring resort. Ikeda specialises in the special Hinoki Onsen bath, which gets its name from the use of hinoki, Japan’s most prized cypress wood once reserved strictly for royalty, and used for building palaces, temples, and shrines.

Aside from the onsen, other facilities such as massages, facials, and hair removal services are also available.

The Hot Spa is tucked away in the forgotten recesses of Roxy Square and is unbeknownst even to some of Katong’s frequent passers-by. Aside from pools, The Hot Spa also boasts other relaxing services like Swedish massages, tui na, ear candling, and facials. However, the hot pool facilities here, unfortunately, are restricted only to male usage.

The Koyamaki Onsen Bath at Elements Wellness lets you experience the wonders of onsen therapy in a cosy private room in the very heart of town. Soak away in energised ion water and microbubbles that are said to relieve chronic pain.

In addition, the act of cycling through hot and cold baths creates the practice of contrast hydrotherapy that’s said to heavily boost circulation.

Relax in Spring Heal Spa’s jjimjilbang hot stone sauna, where you’ll find the floor covered in small, smooth stones warmed to a temperature of 38 to 45ºC. You’ll be surprised how comfortable it is to lie on the stones, especially when they’re warm! If you constantly suffer from aching muscles, the pressure from the stones is great for loosening those knots.
