Did [Promotions] Sanctuary Spa Couple Retreat
After settling everything and feeding Kaitlin, Daddy Li and I left for our appointment at Adeva Spa. Finally we got some me time to relax together. This has not happened for a really really long time. So it was wonderful that we finally could have some time together to unwind. I actually bought the voucher for this like really long time ago, but we didnt get around to using it till that day. Like at least been 10 months or something since I bought it. If you are wondering what happened to Kaitlin, she was at the playground playing happily and then after that she took a nap.
I made sure that I booked us a slot so that it would be just nice that Kaitlin would be taking her nap and I wouldnt have to worry so much about her.
Before the massage, we were actually able to use Adevas facilities like the sauna and jaccuzi, but cos we worried about Kaitlin, we only arrived 15 mins before our appointment time so we didnt get to do it. Instead, they assessed what we would like for our massage, for example the pressure and the type of oil used. I think this personalised service is great.
Pictures taken before we started our massage. Service was excellent and they were very caring. The masseuse were worried about me being cold cos my hair was all drenched so they covered me up and advised me to take a shower later on to rinse out the rain water. Also, the thing I love about it is that they were yakking and chatting away or like trying to promote you to buy a package or something whilst doing the massage. I would have been damn annoyed if they did.
Another plus point is that the massage bed has a warming function. They didnt mention it but I could feel it warming me up and I thought that was great, esp since I was freezing cold from the rain.
Overall, the massage was good but I didnt end up falling asleep. Personally, I assess if they are good also by the fact if it was relaxing enough for me to fall asleep. However, in this situation, I would not say that they were not good, but rather that I could not put my mind at ease cos I was worried about Kaitlin and thinking about her. Daddy Li fell asleep during the massage and even snored so I guess it the whole experience was not too bad. It was just me!
Massage ended and Daddy Li and split ways to go use their facilities. We made sure that Kaitlin was still asleep before proceeding on cos if she wasnt, we would have just left.
I went into the sauna for like a few minutes and left to shower. It just wasnt my thing. Took a hot shower and then went into the jacuzzi for awhile. Good thing was that I was the only one around so I got to use all the facilities without caring if anyone was there The jacuzzi got a little cold for me cos well Im used to warm/hot water and Lihai knows that. I bathe in extremely warm water everytime and he thinks Im insane. So anyway..I took another shower to warm myself up.
Even though Kaitlin was still asleep, we didnt use the facilities for that long cos we just didnt want to be away from her for too long. Before we left, Adeva Spa served us a complimentary warm chinese dessert each. I dont know what it was, but it had pears and some nuts in it. It was super awesome and I wanted more!!! Then of course, the staff asked us if we would like to purchase their package and we kindly declined since they were not being overly pushy about it. Honestly speaking, if it was not for the voucher, their regular prices would have been a little too pricey. Then again, with such great service, I wouldnt mind paying, but we really wouldnt be doing this on a regular basis with Kaitlin being a small girl still. Perhaps in the future when she grows older, and we can worry less about her and have more us time we might.
If you are on the lookout for a massage or facial for yourself or as a couple thing, you should definitely give Adeva Spa a try. Plus, one of their outlets is located at Paragon, so central and convenient you wont regret
Then we hit to Adeva Spa. Thank God that i didnt need to pay extra
even though we did not meet the term and condition.
Overall it was really an awesome 90 min professional full body massage
damn shiok and the therapist was very nice to me hehe service is awesome
I went for a facial yesterday at a place Id been meaning to try out for ages: Adeva Spa at Paragon. [Note to those of us who aren't very proficient in spelling or reading - clearly both in my case - this is not an Aveda Spa which I spent about a year thinking it was. A confusingly similar but different spelling.]
Sadly it is not nearly as impressive as I was hoping. I usually go to the most amazing facial lady (Joanne Chiam) who I rave about whenever anyone asks me for a facial recommendation so I really dont know why I occasionally bother straying from her.
Adeva Spa should, by all rights, be a little haven of tranquility from all the hustle and bustle in one of the busiest malls on Orchard. But somehow they get it all a bit wrong.
Right next to reception is a horrible little cupboard where they make tea that you cant help but notice as soon as you walk in. The treatments rooms are rather brown and drab (see 2nd picture below) but when I nosily sneaked a peak behind the crimplene brown curtains there was an amazing rooftop garden that for some reason they have decided to keep under wraps. It seems a bit of a shame to be wasting such a nice view.
The actual facial technique was OK and the products were faultless but the therapist skipped out of the room as soon as she had slapped the face mask on me, and I hate that. I like a hand massage/arm massage/something or I dont feel like its value for money. Joanne scores again on that point.
Extraction is such an important, if painful, part of any facial and at Adeva it wasnt included (I feel it isnt really a proper facial without it). And my last gripe is that there was lots of bulky equipment lurking in the corridors between treatment rooms which made it feel temporary and messy (I can get that feeling for free from my rented house).
Disclosure: My facial was free and courtesy of an Amex voucher. If I had been paying, it would have cost me $192.60 plus GST for 60 minutes (really not worth it). Game, set and match to Joanne, who would have cost $150 all in and works on your face for anything between an hour and a half to two hours, depending on the state of your skin.
went to adeva spa last Friday at Paragon,
and it was awefully awesome experience. haha.
very relaxing and rejuvenating.
you can check this website below for their serviceshttp://www.adevaspa.com/home.html
its quite expensive for me who is still holding a student pass, but i bought a voucher when they were having a roadshow event at Bugis.
so i just got it for SGD 38 only! *yihaaa.. hahahaa.
*actually they dont allow me to go in the first place when i called them, cause im foreigner under a student pass here. and their terms n condition is only for local, PR and E-pass. but i said their sales person nvr mention anything about it. so i just proceed to buy the voucher. haha.
for i know that God knows that his daughter needs a good massage. so, they let me to use the voucher. haha.
and i cant describe what a wonderful time that i was having over there.
a very good place in the very first place. very high class. hahaha. *norak,, yuuu.. hahaha.
a very friendly therapist. *NOT the front liners. ~.~ they are so not friendly to whom they think is not very prospect full member like me. i wrote at the particulars that i only had a massage twice a year and i said to them that i usually go back and forth to Jakarta to do my facial. and after that the woman who was attended me like. ohh okay. Thank you. and then she left. and all the tai2, they are very good with them, very smiley, etc2. haishh.. what a service mam! thanks.. haha.
a very good SOP (Standard Operating Procedure) they serve ginger tea and red bean dessert, yuuumm.. hihi. *well, idk if its red bean, but its red and its a bean. hahahha. but its niceee.. hihi.
and a very gooddd 1 hour of aromatic massage that i was havingg.. hihihi.
*they have stage for the massage
light aromatic therapy massage
medium- swedish massage
hard shiatsu massage.
20 minutes of jacuzzi, and actually i can use the steam room as well, but decided to finish my treatment there and go for a shower because i was meeting c bella and shella soon after that. haha.
they provide hair dryer, cotton buds, soft lens liquid and the place to put it, hairspray, johnson n johnson powder, even gatsby spray too.. haha..
all in all. it was a good place and i recommend you to go if u have the money and time and like to go to pamper yourself.
It was luxurious and worth every single penny (AND MORE!). I had a great time and I fell into such a deep sleep! I went with 3 of my SPArty girls (Big Nat, Small Nat and Linda) and we all loved it!
The spa was located in a very central place. Decor was so elegant! The interiors were beautiful and spacious, with high ceilings. We took a tour after our facial and it was wow wow wow! The facilities were great and the environment was very appealing because even on a Sunday afternoon, it wasnt crowded nor noisy. People respected each others spaces and it was all very comfortable.
My facial was awesome. I forgot to ask the therapists name though. She started the treatment by telling me she was going to do destress and before I knew it, she put her hands over my face, I took a deep breath and the lavender essential oils just knocked me out. Everything from the shoulder, face, head and arm massages, to the actual facial (cleansing, extraction, mask etc) was so well executed. She had smooth, strong hands that were masterful and firm. I fought the zzzzz monster from the get go and lost! I wanted to stay awake to see what she was doing to me but I know I started snoring because I woke myself up a few times. Heh.
Was it worth $214? Yes yes yes! No hard-selling, a real spa environment, luxurious designer seats, we had hot ginger tea, water and a detoxifying Hawthorn dessert. The 90-minute session was fantastic! I was almost tempted to buy the offered package but I dont have money now. My friend Natalie bought it though and Im envious! The package makes you a member. Members are allowed to use the facilities in the spa and there is free food, drinks and dessert too. I will try to wrangle some $$ the next time and make sure I get at least a small 10-session package. This will be one of those for special occasions treats, not my usual monthly maintenance spa sessions. I love this spa! I want to come back again!
We were about to have dinner at Suntec when we saw the promotion of Adeva. For an hour of whole body massage you will be charged for 38sgd when the usual price is 78. We went to the facility and were gladly attended by the staff. A couple of minutes passed and we were instructed that we can use the spa amenities before the massage; it has jacuzzi the size of our room, steam bath, and sauna. Ginger tea and water are available also. The tea is very good and very commendable. After soaking in the pool, it was time now for massage. It was a relief; having a massage after a weeks work. But the thing is its only her weekend, my week has just started.
WILL: Adeva at Paragon Orchard! What? How much? Hehe. As we were their first timer customer, their package of 198$ per session of massage was slashed to $38. Good deal right?
What are the inclusions. Free use of jacuzzi, steam bath, disposable underwear, their free flow of very well blended ginger tea, and a dessert.
We went there after office, TGIF! On their very serene lobby, staff will give u a form to fill up what are your body parts that your masseurs will concentrate to. There is also a boxes to tick how hard your massage will be. Kung may extra hard lng dun, un ang check ko. Ha! So i ticked on, Hard.
The massage, damn good. Rejuvenated!
Do not forget to make an appointment, they are always fully booked. So better call before going there. Oh, i love their tea. Very soothing!
Back to town, went to Paragon and tried the ADEVA SPA at level 6. Pretty okay I would say. Not the fantastic kind. Afterall, I paid only $38 for each of us both. 60mins full body massage, not that bad la!
