The Four Seasons Spa & L’Occitane offers a one-day wellness package and an ‘Exclusive Treatment’ using essential oils
Earlier this year the international cosmetics and fragrance brand, L’Occitane brought its spa concept to Singapore for the very first time.
Located at the 5-star Four Seasons Singapore and spa therapists here only use authentic ingredients and perform massages, facials and scrubs by hand – using traditional massage methods.
This award-winning spa is also the only L’Occitane spa in the world offering Neroli & Orchidee treatments.
The spa’s one-day wellness package includes a body massage (where guests can chose from various styles and time lengths), lunch and use of the venues sauna, steam room, swimming pool and outdoor jacuzzi.
Otherwise, the Four Seasons ‘Exclusive Treatment’ includes a relaxing massage which is said to release muscular tension and a revitalizing scrub which is said to be anti-ageing.
A combination of Neroli essence (an essential oil from bitter orange tree blossoms that are grown in France) and white orchid absolute from Madagascar are used in the massage which can make the skin feel soft and blends Swedish and Balinese techniques as well as Chinese acupressure.
The scrub is performed before the massage and uses the same scents as the massage but includes a Shea Butter Scrub (which exfoliates dead skin cells) and the Ochidee Body Milk, also by L’Occitane.
This luxurious ‘Neorli & Orchidee’ scrub and massage can be booked as either a 60 or 90 minute massage and then a 30 minute scrub.
Other body treatments available at Four Seasons Spa & L’Occitane include the Neroli & Orchid Nourishing Scrub, the Shea Nourishing Scrub and Shea ultra-moisturizing body wrap.
Shea butter is included in several products by L’Occitane with the orchid being Singapore’s national flower. Neroli has antioxident properties.
Facials on the spa menu include the Premium Immortelle Divine Secret which may target wrinkles and promote skin elasticity. All facials can include an additional boosting face enhancer which is said to tackles fine lines and dark circles.
Manicures and pedicures can also be enjoyed together with deep tissue, revitalizing, detoxifying and body enhancing massages- some of which use techniques from regions such as Bali and Sweden.
The spa is open daily from 10 am to 10 pm.
French cosmetics and fragrance company, L’Occitane opened its first spa in Brazil in 2001 and today has over 2000 stores worldwide.
