Forget the five-course dinner. Take some time to truly unwind this Valentine's Day
Chocolates. Roses. Champagne. These Valentine's Day clichés are what most clueless but well-meaning guys turn to when planning for the big event. The more gung-ho amongst the lot might even attempt to whip up their own candlelight dinner. But we think there's wisdom in leaving all the heavy-lifting to the pros. With that in mind, may we suggest a relaxing afternoon rub-down at The Fullerton Spa? The spa experience here doen't begin with your treatment. It starts with a complimentary session in the sauna and steam room, where the welcome heat relaxes your muscles, opens your pores, and gives a gentle boost to your circulation.
Thereafter, opt for the 60-minute Ultimate Aromatherapy Experience, where you'll both be ushered into your private treatment suites, fitted with self-warming massage beds to put you entirely at ease. Depending on your mood, you can choose from 13 natural oil blends (created by the award-winning Aromatherapy Associates brand, no less), each with their own deeply therapeutic mix of aromatic plant and flower oils. A combination of Swedish and neuromuscular techniques will help to dispel any muscular tension built up from long hours hunched over your work desk. The therapist will also utilise lymphatic massage techniques to aid in all-round circulation. By the end of it all, you should feel well and truly reborn. Couples booking in for this pampering treatment during the month of February can also look forward to a complimentary 30-minute foot or back massage.
After the massage, we wouldn't advise heading into a five-course dinner. Instead, book ahead for Afternoon Tea at The Landing Point, where the restaurant's popular Afternoon Tea set gets reinvented with a cupid-forward twist. Think freshly shucked oysters dotted with Champagne jelly, salmon topped with caviar, and heart-shapred pralines — amongst other sweet and savoury bites.
