It’s important you show your love for your other half every single day, but there’s something about Valentine’s Day that sends couples into a frenzy to impress.
The usual chocolates and flowers that come with the festivity — while undoubtedly sweet — is also a gesture that’s fast getting stale, as is the typical dinner date that comes with a set menu you’ll only half enjoy.
If it’s a special (and useful) gift you’re after, look no further than this guide, but otherwise, we guarantee an experience at one of these couple’s spa treatments will do the trick just as well. These blissful establishments will not only leave you feeling rejuvenated and refreshed for the rest of the night, but is also an escape for some truly private time to bond as a couple, a luxury we can hardly afford in today’s world.
Here are the most romantic couple’s spa treatments to book for Valentine’s Day.
We’ll go ahead and start with the most luxurious option of them all, but only because your special half deserves the best. Raffles Hotel’s recently re-opened spa has all the makings of a very pampering experience, but the Ultimate Romance Package truly tops it all. Book for any Pampering for Two spa package and you’ll enjoy a four-hour Gem Suite Experience, complete with a glass of fine bubbly and chocolates. At the end of it all, a monogrammed bathrobe and a floral bouquet by the property’s resident florist are perfect ways to remember this indulgent experience by.
Price subject to treatment.
For a quiet escape away from the bustle of the city, head over to the Auriga Spa at Capella Singapore, where a near three-hour couple’s spa package (S$718) will immerse you and your partner in complete tranquillity. The ritual begins with a rose scrub, followed by a full body massage and facial cleansing massage to melt any tension and stress away. The whole experience culminates with a candlelit Mandi Safar bath, and — as the perfect end to a romantic evening — cocktails and light bites at Bob’s Bar after.
The recently renovated Fairmont Singapore might be a dream to spend the weekend at, but it’s just as pampering down at its spa. The Willow Stream Spa’s 120-minute long couples’ treatment (S$688) takes place in its signature VIP couple suite, where a warm Thermal Mineral Bath is drawn for the both of you to relax in, before the face and body therapy from Gaylia Kristensen’s Signature Ritual ensues.
Nestled within the lush greenery of a national park, Aramsa Spa sees 17 uniquely designed treatment rooms which celebrate the tranquil garden ambience that surrounds it. Its award-winning interiors are matched by holistic treatments within, and makes for the perfect getaway from city life, if only just for two and a half hours. The Couple Escape (S$498) includes your choice of one of four treatments, including the popular Aramsa Recharge and Tropical Java Lulur.
It’s not every day you’ll see spa rooms in a shipping container but Nimble/Knead succeeds in bringing a novel industrial-chic vibe to the experience. Located conveniently in Tiong Bahru, the cosy establishment offers couple’s treatments which include a 90-minute massage (choose from four of their signature treatments), a body scrub, and a body mask. The facility also offers jacuzzi baths and a little back garden to sip on your ginger tea at, making it the perfect spot to unwind at before you grab a bite at one of the many reputable restaurants or cafes nearby.

In taking the sweetness of Valentine’s Day a step further, Estheva Spa has concocted a special treatment that’s almost good enough to eat. Incorporating chocolate and honey, this delectable couple’s massage (S$810) promises 150 minutes of uninterrupted spa bliss. The Choc De-Ager is an easy one for chocolate lovers, and includes a Chocolatier Massage and Choc Fondue Wrap. Those who prefer the softer aroma of honey will appreciate the Dream Honey Ritual, which consists of a Honeyed Massage and Honeyed Marine BodyWrap instead.
Renowned for being a nature-inspired sanctuary in the heart of the city, it was only natural that the Heavenly Spa by The Westin Singapore would partake in the romance of Valentine’s Day with Indulgent Moment (S$600++), a spa treatment that’ll leave you both thoroughly pampered. The 150-minute treatment includes an Aromatic Bliss Body Massage, Detoxifying Facial, and Full Body Scrub, so you’ll be sure to leave feeling (and looking) better than when you both stepped in.
