If you’re a massage addict and can’t go too long without one, you must be feeling the burn in your wallet. I do! For a long time, I found it so hard to balance my love for good massages and my draining bank account. Cheap massages in Singapore are available, but they aren’t always decent. Either you get bad service, a sleazy environment, or worst – conned. Don’t you hate it when that happens?
My journey searching for decent but affordable massages in Singapore has paid off! I have high expectations of my massage parlors. They must be 1) clean and spacious, 2) have friendly and skilled staff, and 3) must respect my modesty. These massages are affordable but doesn’t lose in terms of quality. Here are my top 3 picks of budget yet good massages in Singapore!
For the quickie: White Panda Massage
Where? – 148 Arab Street, nearest to Bugis MRT
S$25 for a 30min foot massage
S$56 a combo package of 60min foot + body massage
What do I love? – 15 min back and shoulder massage for SGD$18!
This is absolutely my go-to during lunch breaks! I work at an office nearby, and as you can guess, my long hours give me stiff back and shoulders. When it does, White Panda Massage is my paradise. For a low, low price of $18 (less than my taxi fare home!) I get to enjoy an on-point back and shoulder massage. 15 min is the sweet spot: just enough to ease any aches, but not long enough to take up my precious lunch time.
For the unique experience: Bella Luna
Where? – 75 Tras Street, nearest to Tanjong Pagar MRT
How much? – S$48 – S$60 per 60min massage therapy
What do I love? – Revitalizing Rolling Therapy
This treatment rolls round crystals and healing stones on your face and body. It may sound strange at first, but imagine having a smooth and comforting surface rolling across your body. It feels terrific! I find this special technique very relaxing. My therapist says that this treatment is great for body toning and skin revitalizing. The rolling therapy is definitely worth a try. Like me, you’ll be back for more! Source
For the most pampering service: Refresh Day Spa
Where? – Plaza Singapura, nearest to Dhoby Ghaut MRT
S$38 for a 45min manicure + hand massage
S$52 for a 60min pedicure + foot scrub
S$15 for a 15min Power AromaNap
