Luxe meets local at the new multi-concept establishment, which houses a restaurant, 24-hour spa, and transit lounge services.
If “treat yourself” is your mantra for 2018, the newly opened Orient Palace in Singapore’s Annex @ Furama Riverfront, is the place to be.
As the city’s largest dining, wellness, and entertainment hub, the 2,415-square-meter space houses a restaurant as well as a spa that’s perfect for a spot of pampering.
We suggest visiting Spa Nes first, unless you fancy having your body kneaded after a meal. Here, a line-up of wellness services is available, including Southeast Asian healing therapies, spa facials, body massages, and barber services. The highlight is the Spa Nes Signature Massage, an invigorating treatment using the essential oils of the orchid, Singapore’s national flower.
After soaking up the goodness of your spa session, head to Orient Palace, the hub’s namesake restaurant, for Nanyang-style and Cantonese dishes. Led by Chef Fei, who is the winner of China’s Celebrity Chef five-star medal, the restaurant offers an interesting mix of handmade Cantonese dim sum and local dishes like the Old Punggol Black & White Pepper Crab.
With entertainment at the heart of the hub, nightly performances from live bands, budding artistes, and international celebrities can be expected at the restaurant.
For travelers seeking respite before their flight, Orient Palace also offers transit lounge services including luggage storage, shower, and spa facilities at Spa Nes.
From March 1, 2018 onward, the spa will be open round the clock, all the better for some late night pampering.
