You have your gym memberships and even your facial and manicure packages, here's why a spa membership at the Grand Hyatt's Damai Spa is the indulgence you've been missing out on

We all deserved to be pampered. But sometimes finding the time and the (right) place to do so can add unnecessary stress to what should be a relaxing exercise. With peaceful, zen-like surroundings, impeccable service, soothing treatments and top-notch products, luxury spas are the natural choice.

But not everyone can afford to visit a luxury spa on a weekly or even monthly basis. The good news? There's a life hack that you've been missing out on — a luxury spa membership.

The Damai Spa in the Grand Hyatt Singapore, one of the best spas in Singapore, is finally offering three tiers of membership in 2018 that give spa credits for treatments and access to its great facilities. The first tier, the Essence ($900) allows you to redeem your credits for five 90-minute treatments, and ten 90-minute treatments for the Element ($1,600). The highest tier, the Bliss membership ($2,350) is pure indulgence that has credits enough for fifteen 90-minute treatments.

The spa currently offers both Damai and ESPA treatments and has consistently made Buro's lists as one of the best luxury spas in Singapore. Among its offerings are body and face treatments from spa brand June Jacobs, well-loved favourites like Swedish massage, waxing and manicures, as well as Asian treatments like the jamu (body wrap) and qi balance reflexology.

The most important part of any spa membership is the access to treatments. Unlike conventional spa memberships, each of the Damai's three memberships can be used for any 90-minute facial or spa treatments at the spa. That means you're not restricted and you can use them for a custom facial one month, and a hot stone massage, another month. Talk about unrestricted bliss!

Depending on the tier of membership you purchase and how often you visit the spa for treatments, you may use up your spa treatments well before the year is over. The good news is, upon joining a Damai membership, you will continue to enjoy 20 percent off all treatments once you've redeemed all your spa credits. You're also entitled to discounts on spa retail products and at the Oasis poolside restaurant so you can nip in for a healthy bite after a massage or body scrub.

Every time you're at the spa for a treatment you can make a day of it with full access to the spa facilities such as a steam room, dry sauna, jacuzzi and cold plunge. Take a half day off and come an hour before your treatment to make full use of your time there. The higher-tier Element and Bliss memberships also come with complimentary day passes to use the Damai's fitness and pool facilities — treat yourself or your friends to these goodies. For each visit you're also entitled to complimentary parking ranging from four hours to all day, depending on your membership.
