Fast and efficient or relaxing and unhurried, a treatment at Essa Spa can be tailored to your needs and schedule.  A convenient location in the heart of the city enables a quick treatment after work or a more leisurely afternoon taking time to bask in the sauna and whirlpool.

Escape’ and ‘Sanctuary’ are combined to create the concept of ESSA. Eleven treatment rooms, nine single and two couple suites, are all equipped with adjustable massage bed, shower and bathroom. A blend of June Jacobs products and natural Malay ingredients originating from the rainforest are employed to achieve calm and relaxation.

Hubby and I trialed two treatments. I luxuriated in the ESSA Dream State and Hydrafacial, while he explored the June Jacobs Body Treatment and Facial. 

Beginning with a foot bath, my tootsies received a short scrub and splashing with rose water. It was followed with the ESSA Dream State massage, which used a meld of jasmine, ylang ylang and bergamot to initiate and maintain a sense of tranquility throughout the treatment. The idea is to create a hypnotic dreamlike state by focusing on key pressure points, especially those on the ears, face and palms. The last part of the treatment entailed an almost cosmetic procedure involving some technical equipment. The Hydratherapy, which used a machine to cleanse, exfoliate, extract, hydrate and nourish my face, left my skin feeling decontaminated from city life and glossy smooth.

Hubby’s treatment began with a Signature June Jacobs Spa Collection Facial. Highly concentrated peptides, botanical extracts, skin hydrators and potent anti-oxidants serve to illuminate and revive stressed skin. Extremely fussy about his skin (hubby suffers from dermatitis so his skin is often either red and irritated or dry and peeling) I was surprised to hear him sing praises of the treatment. For the Body Treatment too he had just as much song. This three part procedure utilized Papaya Enzyme for exfoliation, a Lemon Sugar Body Polish for refinement and an age-defying emulsion, leaving his skin feely soft and silky.

Informative, unpresuming staff, clean compact facilities and a comprehensive menu of therapies earn ESSA Spa a spot on The Yum List
