A good night’s rest and we awaken to Saturday or – Sentosa Day!
Sentosa is home to one of the best day spa’s I’ve ever visited. Formerly Spa Botanica, it has recently been taken over and renamed So Spa. The spa is surrounded by tropical foliage and roaming peacocks and one of the best things about it is the mud pool. There’s nothing quite like lathering yourself up in thick, rich mud, baking yourself in the sun and then rinsing it all off to reveal your tingling new skin. Nobody is quite sure why mud is so good for your skin, but some believe it’s to do with the anti-inflammatory properties of the mud and it’s good enough that some dermatologists recommend it to their patients as a complementary therapy.
There’s not much more to say about the heaven that is this day spa, but it’s just as well we have relaxed up today because we are heading out for dinner tonight at Kudeta. Perched atop Marina Bay Sands with incredible views of the city by day and by night (but especially by night), this awesome restaurant presents you with a menu designed to share with friends, accompanied by gorgeous cocktails. The food as always is amazing and it’s great to try some food that doesn’t normally appear on the menu at home. But especially great is dessert. I’m halfway through my first one when the waiter belatedly brings out the birthday cake that the girls had pre-organised. But hey, who am I to turn away dessert.
