Recognized as Singapore’s premier Japanese spa, Ikeda Spa is a serene retreat that resembles a Japanese hot spring resort. Ikeda specializes in special Hinoki The Onsen bath, which takes its name from the use of hinoki, Japan’s most prized cypress wood once reserved strictly for royalty and used for building palaces, temples and shrines.

The hot spa is tucked away in the forgotten corners of Roxy Square and is unbeknownst to even some of Katong’s frequent passers-by.

However, the hot pool facilities here, unfortunately, are for male use only.

The Koyamaki Onsen Bath at Elements Wellness allows you to experience the wonders of onsen therapy in a comfortable private room right in the heart of the city. Soak in energized ionized water and microbubbles said to relieve chronic pain.

10. Spring Healing Spa
Relax in Spring Heal Spa’s jjimjilbang hot stone sauna, whose floor is covered with small smooth stones heated to a temperature of 38-45 ºC.

If you constantly suffer from muscle pain, the pressure of the stones is ideal for loosening those knots.
