Trust the inimitable Foster + Partners to create a resort that blends old-world colonial charm with contemporary chic, all with the turquoise backdrop of the South China Sea. Then there are the grounds at Capella Singapore: 30 acres of lush lawns dotted with age-old trees, roaming peacocks and artfully appointed sculptures, just steps from a family-friendly beach at the resort’s foot. It all adds up to a relaxing tropical getaway – particularly if you indulge at the award-winning Auriga spa – on the doorstep of one of Asia’s best cities for shopping and eating. What more could you ask for?
The four signature treatments at Auriga spa are designed around the cycles of the moon. Linger in the wet area, with its herbal steam room, ice fountains and vitality pools in a garden setting.
