For a quick break from our Universal Studios adventure, we dropped by ESPA at RWS (Singapore’s largest luxury spa). This flagship spa serves as the perfect oasis for those wanting to escape from the city or just wanting to take time out from the resort’s attractions.
This relaxed and casual haven offers indoor spaces that give outdoor views to the lush, preserved jungle hillsides and calming reflection ponds. Made up of a village-like complex of small -scaled buildings immerses in a lush tropical landscape, the interior spaces take on a warm palette of earth-toned hues and natural materials with subtle patterns and textures that complement the landscape. Its beauty and seclusion impart a peaceful spirit throughout the spa, as interior spaces open onto and meld with the landscape.
This was the setting for where we had lunch on day two – in Tangerine.
Nestled amidst tropical landscaping and a lush reflection pool in the tranquil spa environment of ESPA, Tangerine boast a a bright and airy dining space that can seat 60 people.
The decor is bathed in soothing earthy hues and dotted with bold splashes of citrus colours, evoking a relaxing and calming atmosphere by bringing the outside serene natural garden indoors.
The spa cuisine is quite delightful, where simplicity, flavour, and nutrition lead the menu. Signature like this Asian style sea bass and salsa (as seen above) will surely show you that eating healthy doesn’t have to mean boring. This comforting fish dish, features a lightly pan fried sea bass atop a bed of sautéed napa cabbage and is served with an Asian-style salsa and lime chili sauce for a tangy, spicy surprise.
Tangerine really raises the bar in spa cuisine and you should definitely drop by whenever you find yourself in RWS.
I promise you every dish you see here was just as good as how it looked.
