“This is distinctively Singaporean in effort and spirit. It combines Marina Bay Sands’ commitment to honor local companies, with the deep Asian heritage of Banyan Tree. We aim to make Singapore proud by opening the city’s first-ever Banyan Tree Spa at the height of nearly 200 meters in the sky, and welcome Singaporeans to visit this spectacular Spa.”
Marina Bay Sands Interim CEO George Tanasijevich
As Singapore, the former British colony marks its golden Jubilee, 50 years of independence this year; I am more than glad to share MY FAVORITE BRAND; being one of the Most Established Brands of Singapore – Banyan Tree Holdings Limited (“Banyan Tree”) founded by the entrepreneurial Singaporean husband and wife team Ho Kwon Ping and Claire Chian.
And, it is only coincident that my wedding was taken place at Bottle Tree, I supposed I have a thing for Trees!
It might be 2 years ago, but it is still my favorite spa experience, globally. I was not at all too concerned about the root of this brand, initially. Although impressionable, but when I search for one, all I wanted was, a luxurious facial spa. Besides, given that my last job designation as an Interior Designer, I must seek to explore! Indeed, I discovered that Banyan Tree, is a Singapore brand, and its phenomenal global success from being just a single resort in Phuket, Thailand,1994. Even then, it was already an Asian’s first luxury spa resort.

Banyan Tree Spa is designed to calm the body and the mind with the “Tree of Life” as its interior design’s inspiration. It offers list of signature massage services performed by the skillful hands of its therapists. What’s more, the spa only uses the most natural products and techniques to offer a heightened relaxation.
Many things can happen in a year. Sacrificing your career for motherhood, or living abroad, does not put an end to everything, but to prepare you in the long run.
Happy 50th Anniversary Singapore!
Wish you an impending and prevailing success. You might be a ONE DOT in the map, but you make a BIG DIFFERENCE.
