Whoever said that men can't be bothered about their looks clearly hasn't met a metrosexual. Admittedly, not all men are keen with the idea of having to 'dress up' or look presentable, but most men -- and not just the metrosexuals -- are just as self-conscious of their looks as we ladies are.
To cater to this ever-growing group, The Spa at Mandarin Oriental Singapore is now offering a slew of new treatment packages, designed specifically for the image-conscious man. We pick the five that will cover all your grooming and relaxation needs.
Spa Package: Alpha Male
This aptly named package commences with a relaxing sit in a private steam room, where the heat warms the body; opening the pores of the skin. This is then followed by a full exfoliating body treatment, to rid the skin of dead cells. After which, choose from either a sensual Therapeutic massage or a traditional Thai massage before ending with an Essential facial treatment.
Spa Package: Ultimate Impact
Beginning with a Power Lift Facial to tone the skin, and concluding with a manicure and pedicure session to shape your nails, the Ultimate Impact treatment package ensures you leave The Spa looking suave and feeling confident.
Duration: 180 minutes
Spa Package: Power Lift Facial
In this facial treatment, 'galvanic and micro-currents' are used to increase the effectiveness of active products, which in turn stimulate the skin deep beneath its layers. The result: facial muscles are lifted and toned, and skin feels more hydrated with fine lines and wrinkles smoothen out. The treatment also includes a pressure point massage, on the neck and shoulder areas, to relief tension.
Duration: 90 minutes
Spa Package: Face and Body Energiser
Deserving of men who've worked tirelessly at the office, the Face and Body Energiser package begins with a back cleanse and exfoliation that leaves the skin feeling refreshed. The treatment then continues with a back massage and therapeutic Ayurvedic scalp massage, to bring relief to overworked muscles. A deep cleansing facial, using an exotic blend of fine essential oils and effective natural botanicals, then ensues, leaving the skin bright and balanced.
Duration: 90 minutes
Spa Package: Men's Waxing
The Spa also offers a selection of waxing treatments that includes: full leg, half leg waxing, back, and shoulder and chest waxing, all of which are available upon request.
Prices quoted are subject to 10% service charge and applicable government taxes.
