I'm never one to go for spas and such so I was really excited when I was invited to an evening of relaxation at Chinois Spa @ The Legends.
Chinois (pronounced Shee-no-ah) Spa currently has 5 outlets in Singapore, with the branch at The Legends being their newest addition to the family.
Chinois Spa is a dedicated well-being company that believes in a simple philosophy : 'To provide outstanding treatments and programs for a healthy well-being using the best premium products available'.
Design elements: Oriental influences with touches of modernity. I really love how it's not too overly oriental (never a fan of those imperial palaces kind of design)
Consultation with the therapists on the types of treatments available. We were recommended to do their signature on the spa menu _ THE MAJESTIC (150 minutes).
Before we start, let's take you on a tour of the Spa!
This is the room we will be in for our treatment.
Area for a foot scrub and massage before treatment begins
I really love these fishes! They give off this vibe of being carefree, as if telling us to let go of our worries and be carefree like them.
Let's proceed on to our treatment :) Click here for their spa menu
THE MAJESTIC _ 150 minutes
Enjoy a relaxing bath soak with our special propriety blend of essential oils followed by a soothing body scrub down. A detoxifying body wrap will firm and tone your muscles. An invigorating massage as a finale to this highly recommended treatment!
We changed into our robes. Rui Ying and I were super nervous when we heard that we have to be in the bathtub together afterwards *shy*. Disposable underwear & shower cap was provided. Here's a picture with one of our therapists :)
We started out with a foot scrub and foot massage. I usually hate foot massages cause I am ticklish on my feet but my therapist somehow made it bearable for me.
After the foot massage, the first step was a frangipani scented body scrub. It smelled really nice and invigorating :)
After the scrub, the therapist applied a slimming masque all over the body and wrapped us up with an electrical blanket.
The temperature can range from 45 _ 65 degrees within the blanket depending on how hot you want it to be. Mine was around 60 degrees and boy, I started sweating after 5 minutes. The heat supposedly makes the masque work better and it also promotes detoxification.
I wonder if I can sleep with such a blanket every night so I will sweat out my toxins and lose some weight at the same time? Hmmm
So, after some time (felt like forever!), we were released from our 'cocoon bags' and led to the shower to wash the slimming masque off. On the opposite side of the shower lies the bathtub.
We proceeded to the jacuzzi tub to soak for a good 20 minutes. We did take some shots in the tub but not posting them up (in case you start imagining things), so here's a shot of me and the tub. And oh, we were given some warm ginger tea to warm ourselves up and aid in the detox process too.
The therapists will be waiting outside the shower area to help us if we need anything.
After the soak, we showered again (just a rinse) to cool our bodies off and proceeded back to the treatment area.
This time, we are in for a 1 hour full body massage with luxurious body oils. I felt much more relaxed after sweating and soaking already and this body massage completely eased my stress away.
Stepping into Chinois Spa, I could feel the oriental elegance with touches of modernity.
I was excited for my spa session, I followed my therapist through the beautiful hallway.
The massage was conducted in the beautifully appointed room.
I was so glad that I got a couple room all to myself for a good 2 hours. The room was luxury spacious which offer shower facilities, toilet, room sandals, bathrobe, clean towels and a lavish jacuzzi.
I had my clothes changed.and ready for The Imperial treatment.
My therapy kickstart with a refreshing body scrub. It exfoliated and removed my dead skin cells, leaving my skin feeling smooth.
The therapist began with the rubbing on my back, my hands, my legs and feet. After which, I turned over and the same procedure for the front.
After the body scrub, it's time for a shower and rinse off the granules that the scrub left behind.
After I took a quick bath, I immediately soaked myself in jacuzzi concocted with the proprietary blend of essential oils.
Ready for the plunge after a shivering shower.
I felt really pampered and I truly enjoyed this spa experience.
The cozy ambiance and soothing music made me truly relax myself.
I heard that soaking in a hot tub helps in improving sleep as it eased our body into a relaxing state.
Life is not just about work. We should take some time off for relaxation and rejuvenate ourselves.
I can't bear to get up from the jacuzzi.
After the soak, completely relax with a soothing full body massage. A treatment where all my senses were activated and refreshed.
Chinois Spa used only the best premium products in facials and skincare for their organic, beautifying and regenerating qualities.
The back and foot massage was shiok, the pressure applied was just right for me. It soothed my body and de-stress my muscle aches. It helped to relieve the anxiety.
The foot massage soothed my tired feet. I don't feel any pain at all when the therapist applied the pressure at different sore point. In fact, I felt so comfortable that I nearly fell asleep.
After the therapy, I felt so refreshing.
The spa session was really good and their service was excellent.
These few weeks, I've been stressing out with my school works and have been thinking of a place to unwind myself. Therefore, it was a good thing that CHINIOS SPA invited me to their newly opened outlet @ Hotel Fort Canning for The Majestic Package at $298 for a 2 and a half hour session.

'CHINOIS SPA @ The Legends'
When I stepped into the spa, the clean environment and soft background give me a very calm and relaxing feeling. Not forgetting their friendly therapist at the reception really help me to keep the blue away somehow.
Most of their therapists are Indonesian and have their skills trained in Singapore. All of them have great knowledge on their products and services. As you can seen from the picture above, one of their therapists was explaining to us on our treatment. She is really friendly and answered to our doubts patiently :D
As a first timer in the boutique spa, I was told to fill up this body consultation form.
This is the comfortable treatment room that I was brought to for my spa. They were playing a very soothing music together with a dimmer lighting in the room makes me feel really relaxed.
Before the treatment begins, I was given a robe to change.
Disposable underwear & shower cap were provided too.
Happy Jennie and me ready for our treatment
The treatment started out with a gently foot massage and I really enjoyed it.
Before putting on our shower cap for the next treatment, we decided to do it in a fashionable way first :D
The frangipani scented body scrub and slimming masque were applied all over the body. A very pleasant blueberry lotion was used as well to moisturise our skin. After that, we were being wrapped up with an electrical blanket.
I'm in the silver electrical blanket.
The temperature ranges from 45 - 65 degrees within the blanket. You are free to choose the temperature that you wanted. As for mine, I was put in a 60 degrees and I could feel my body was sweating inside. With this treatment, it will promote detoxification.
Showering time before proceeding to have our 20 minutes Jacuzzi.
Took a few shots with Jennie while we were soaking in the tub but decided to put this picture instead :D The Jacuzzi was really 'SHIOK' and I think it would be good for couples to enjoy. [ Psst.. there are also couple package!] The therapist will also be providing you with ginger drink while you are enjoying the Jacuzzi.
After a good 20 minutes, we went to have a quick rinse before proceeding to the last treatment.
A 1 hour full body massage with luxurious body oils. I like the way they massage, the pressure was just right for me.
I would highly recommend couples to enjoy 'The Majestic Package'. Overall, the treatments provided was really good. My therapist's hands were skillful. Over at the treatment room, you can only hear soothing music, thus you could just close your eyes and enjoy the treatment fully.
