The notion that spas and wellness treatments are feminine domain is incredibly passé. Why deny yourself the finest things in life because of a superficial association? Especially if you’re one who frequently works out, or pursues a particular sport, your muscles are bound to need a little TLC.
Wellness treatments specifically tailored for men have been on the rise over the past couple years, with more spas introducing gentlemen’s packages into their regular offerings. It isn’t just the hotels that are expanding their treatment range, but dedicated facilities for pampering the urbanite male have been popping up frequently too. C’mon, you deserve it.
We’ve curated a list of the best wellness treatments for men in Singapore, so the next time you’re feeling like you need a little perk me up, you know where to call.

All is wrapped up with a personalised facial to either cleanse, repair or rejuvenate your skin. There’s a 100% guarantee you’re going to walk out feeling like a king.
