Think of Switzerland and what comes to mind is an idyllic setting filled with vast greenery, snowcapped mountains and beautiful blue lakes. Surrounded by nature’s many wonders, it’s no surprise the Swiss are known for their love for environment, as well as their healthy living habits.

Now there’s no need to fly to Switzerland to experience all of it. Luxuriate in the same serene atmosphere at Pürovel Spa and Sport at Swissôtel Merchant Court. Dubbed as the first luxury Swiss spa in Southeast Asia, the spa has four treatment rooms — including a couple suite — with individual showers and offers a slew of revitalising treatments from its menu.

Journey of the East treatment.

Headlining their signature treatments is Journey of the East, a 150-minute full body treatment that marries the power of teas, clay, talcum and rice powders with exfoliating and soothing massage techniques to sweep away dull skin and relax tense muscles. Another highlight is the Refreshing Relaxation Massage, a customisable treatment that calms the mind, body and soul with the use of lavender, clary sage and pine — an aromatic blend that kicks stress out in a jiffy. For a glowing complexion, you can count on the Intense Hydration Rejuvenate Facial, which sends moisture deep into your skin. The therapist also uses an oxygen machine and infuses the Rejuvenate serum into your skin for a lifting and toning effect; perfect for your pre-party prep.

To ensure that your experience reflects the same calmness that you’ll find in the Swiss mountains, essential oils derived from Alpine flowers and herbs grown in the Pürovel field in Switzerland are used in all signature treatments. The spa has also partnered premium and professional grade skincare brands, including Intraceuticals and Thémaé, to offer a truly luxurious service.
