On May 22, 2011, after our tiring Greentennial Half Marathon Run (see separate entry), it was a good opportunity for us to relax at Ace Water Spa. So what to bring?
- Fresh Clothes
- Entrance Fee

We bought our tickets and were handed our locker keys with key chains indicating our locker number: red for the girls and blue for the guys. We headed towards the stairs beside the reception area were the shower, fitting and rest rooms were located. As we submitted our tickets, we were asked to deposit our footwear in exchange for a rubber slipper which could be used only in that area. After showering ourselves, we went to the spa area.
We first visited the herbal pool area. There were four herbal pools: mint, jamine tea, lavender and the other we havn't tried because it was too crowded. The herbal pools were warm and soothing. Each part of it massages different areas: back, foot, legs and the butt. I wanted to try the sauna but as I opened the glass door, I felt it was extremely hot so I changed my mind. I tried the steam bath next to it with the temperature of 61 degrees for 5 minutes instead. According to the instructions, we had to dip at the cooling area afterwards. It was icy cold!
Skipping the kiddie area, we tried the other types of hydromassages. It was surrounded by an artificial river where kids can float with their green floating boards. (I tried this too it was fun!=p) There was a high pressure shower, an artificial water fall, bubble bath and many more. Each covered different body areas from shoulders to toes. Each system had a button which you had to press for it to start.
Overall, the experience was definitely worth it. The price was affordable. The place was well maintained and their systems were one of a kind. I loved the herbal pool. It was also good that they had different systems for soft, medium and hard pressure massage.
