After what felt like the longest year yet – with languishing and ever-changing restrictions –, it's time for a well-deserved break. You don't have to go far to pamper yourself. These spa hotels in Singapore are complete with onsen pools, jacuzzis with satin-like microbubbles, Finnish saunas, steam rooms cast in a psychedelic glow and more. Many go all out to differentiate their spa offerings beyond the quintessential treatments.

The rooms at The Ritz-Carlton are plenty lavish – we're still gaga over the fact that every single room comes with a giant marble bathtub that boasts its own superb views of either the Marina Bay or Kallang River precinct – and the eponymous spa is every bit just as rarefied. Case in point: instead of the usual blankets, you'll be luxuriously ensconced in silken sheets. Since The Ritz-Carlton Spa is the only full-fledged La Mer spa partner in Asia Pacific, the facials just shouldn't be missed. The La Mer Custom Facial, for instance, promises to hydrate and sculpt your face while pampering you with massage after massage – face and neck-and-shoulder massages during both the serum and mask application stages, followed by another eye massage. Make time too to take advantage of the spa facilities such as the jacuzzi pool, steam room and experiential showers.

Here's one for a spa-themed getaway with the girls. Consider the Ladies Floor, a women-only floor that goes all out to woo female guests with pretty-in-pink designer bathrobes, boyfriend shirt-style loungewear and amenities such as hair straightener, facial steamer and manicure set. Then there's Spa by JW, which eschews the conventional Balinese-inspired style for modern interiors that call to mind upmarket salons. The signature massage is among the most effective we've had. Opt for the 80-minute version for a thorough rejuvenation that combines acupressure, gua sha, long strokes and stretching techniques. Spa facilities including sauna, steam room and jacuzzi are not available during this period.

For the ultimate me-time indulgence, treat yourself to the Detoxifying Spa Day ($598) experience at the Willow Stream Spa. It takes a holistic view of wellness, starting guests off with an hour of in-depth body composition analysis (by way of a state-of-the-art InBody machine) and personal training. The workout will be demanding, but train your sights on the upcoming three-and-a-half hours of pampering for motivation: a mineral and jacuzzi soak, a spirulina detox wrap (think cosily draped rather than uncomfortably bound, and with a head massage meanwhile), an aromatherapy massage and an express facial. It's as blissful as it sounds, thanks to the therapists' magic hands and the cocoon-y comforts of the spa beds, plus there's still a 2-course spa lunch to look forward to. Alternatively, check yourself into the Fairmont Singapore, which not only includes complimentary access to the spa facilities (sauna, steam room, whirlpool and cold plunge) but also discounted rates for selected treatments.

The Westin Singapore
  • Hotels
  • Raffles Place

Heading into the CBD for a recuperative getaway might seem like an oxymoronic concept but the Westin Singapore paints a compelling case. The rooms are all situated on the 33th floor and up, so you'll always have a grand view and a freestanding tub to wind down in. The Westin is not one to shy from lofty proclamations, such as in deeming their cots Heavenly Beds. But with ten layers of satiny sheets for maximum plushness, their bravado is justified. The Heavenly Spa is currently closed – but trust us, a staycay at The Westin Singapore itself will calm you down.

  • Sentosa

A two-hour spa getaway ($399) on the lush island of Sentosa is exactly what most of us need right now. On Amara Sanctuary Resort Sentosa's Spa Luna is here to deliver. Granted, the on-site spa is looking a little worn at the edges but the friendly service and skilfulness of the team more than make up for it. Amara is also minutes away from Palawan Beach, so you can easily add sunset walks by the beach to your spa getaway agenda.

Singapore Marriott Tang Plaza Hotel
  • Hotels
  • Orchard

When spa time and shopping time are equal priority, book yourself a spa indulgence at the Singapore Marriott. Your deluxe room has all the space you need for your shopping hauls and since the hotel is conveniently located amongst Orchard Road's major malls, you can shop to your heart's content then easily nip back to soothe your shopping-weary body with a relaxing 60-minute massage. Notably, the Serene Spa is among the few spas that offer a steam shower in every treatment room and you're highly recommended to precede your treatment with a steam shower to prime your body for the massage. Don't forget to also head up to the pool deck for its breezy, resort-style atmosphere and to soak in the jacuzzi.

Four Seasons Hotel Singapore
  • Hotels
  • Orchard

An institute in Singapore's hospitality scene, the Four Seasons has built a reputation of understated elegance. Fitness-wise, there's no lack of options. There are two pool areas – a family-friendly pool on the 20th (look this way for Instagram-worthy floats) and another deck that houses a lap pool and whirlpool. This is also among the few hotels that have tennis courts on the property. The hotel's pride and joy is the Four Seasons Spa which uses exclusively L'Occitane products for all treatments. To get the full-on experience, book a Neroli & Orchidee treatment. The 90-minute scrub-and-massage uses a blend of neroli and white orchid essential oils to leave you invigorated and perfumed.
