With the introduction of two unique spa (and room) packages, guests at the Hotel Jen Tanglin Singapore will be able to indulge in a series of spa packages that is in collaboration with Essence Vale Spa. For those of you who are unfamiliar with the spa, they are located within Changi Airport T3, Conrad Centennial Singapore and the Hotel Jen Tanglin Singapore - do take note that this Lavendar Spa Staycation and Marathon are both available at the Hotel Jen Tanglin Singapore property only.
Featuring premium Le Château du Bois products from France, the Lavender Spa Staycation Package comes with a night in one of Hotel Jen Tanglin Singapore's signature Club Rooms (check out my review of the Club Room here!) as well as two lavender facial treatments and teo Essence Vale Spa treatments (you may choose to utilise them at a later date within one month). Guests who book this package will also enjoy complimentary buffet for two (either at the beautiful Club Lounge or J65), 24-hour access to the lounge and free-flowing cocktails and alcoholic beverages in the evening. The Lavender Spa Staycation Package is available from now until 31 July 2016 (Fridays to Sundays) from S$300++.
In case you do not know that the Hotel Jen Tanglin Singapore has a spa, it is located on the same level as the swimming pool next to the gymnasium. I was invited down to the Essence Vale Spa to experience the 30-minute Lavender Facial Treatment (you get to enjoy this twice with the Lavender Spa Staycation Package - or once per couple) which includes cleansing, a hydrating mask and a head massage.
The facial products that are used in the Lavender Facial Treatment are from Le Château du Bois and it was really quite a relaxing treatment. Perhaps 30 minutes a little too short but if you have two vouchers, make it work! The Hotel Jen Tanglin Singapore will also be running Spa Marathon which comes with a complete 6-hour spa experience with the stay:
- 10:00am Spa Pedicure and Spa Manicure
- 11:30am Steam and Sauna
- 12:00pm Scrub and Lotion
- 13:00pm Spa Cuisine
- 13:45pm Massage and Facial
- 15:15pm Apply colour on manicure and pedicure
- 15:45pm Tea and fruit
- 16:00pm End

When you have memberships across different loyalty programs, it is always a good idea for you to keep track of it (manually or otherwise). I have previously written about AwardWallet which is free to use (but premium features can only be unlocked when you make a contribution) and today I just wanted to mention how useful it actually is because I actually discovered that my account got hacked through this very platform - 339,500 points were gone!
I recently stayed in a Premier Suite at the InterContinental Singapore over New Year's Eve (well, I actually checked-in on 30 December 2017 and checked-out on 01 January 2018) and was curious to know which set of Accelerate challenges it would count towards. More importantly, I was curious to know whether the elite-qualifying nights counted towards my 2017 or 2018 quota.
