What comes to your mind when the word "ONSEN" passing through mouths, websites and social medias? As for me, I can think of many what a inexperience lad can think of...
There are 6 pools in total with different function namely Jet Bath, Bubble Bath, Hot Bath, Silk Bath (which they put in real yuzu floating like a little yellow ducklings), Cold Bath and Soda Spa.
Yunomori Onsen & Spa is the first ever Onsen in Singapore and have made its debut at Kallang Wave Mall in May 2016 Unique in its combination of ancient Japanese bathing culture and holistic Spa and body treatments, Yunomori offers the ultimate relaxation experience. Japanese Onsen is renowned for its healing benefits, and the mineral-rich waters of the baths are a tonic for the mind, body, and soul - the perfect getaway from busy city life. For the urban dwellers of Singapore, Yunomori is the soon-to-be must-go retreat.
23rd Nov 2016: Yunomori Onsen & Spa (Yunomori) is proud to introduce Singapore’s first-ever Yuzu bath, which will only be available for a limited time till 31 December 2016!
Started in early 18th century, soaking in yuzu bath is practise by the Japanese on the winter solstice day. They strongly believed that the yuzu bath can help to ward off winter colds and the common flu. The benefits of a yuzu bath are many. Following the experience, the skin will become smoother, more radiant and moisturized. Containing citrus acids and vitamin C thanks to the fruit, the bath will help to heal chapped skin as well. The oil from the yuzu stimulates the circulatory and digestive systems. For busy Singaporeans who work long hours, the bath will help to alleviate body aches and back pains as well as improve blood circulation.
