Number 1 authentic Japanese Onsen & Spa in Southeast Asia, Yunomori Onsen & Spa opens in Singapore, spanning a total area of more than 16,000 sqft in Kallang Wave Mall! I had the opportunity to try soaking in an authentic Japanese Onsen many years back when I was in Hokkaido and I am so excited to learn that this wonderful and unique onsen experience can now be found in Singapore too!
Thanks Jessie for bringing me along for their Grand Opening tour. Before we even stepped in to the reception area, we first need to lock our shoes at the lockers provided. I love the feeling of being barefooted, it's as if I'm at home!
Now we can officially start the tour of Singapore's very first authentic Japanese onsen with the biggest variety of baths. The interior design of Yunomori features a great elements of wood and natural materials to recreate a sense of nature feeling.
"We are excited to introduce the authentic Japanese onsen experience in Singapore, allowing customers to enjoy the health and beauty benefits of soaking in an onsen without having to travel all the way to Japan." Said Mr Yuya Egawa, General Manager of Yunomori Onsen & Spa (Singapore)
The onsen area in Yunomori is separated into men and women with the women entering on the left and the men to the right. Sorry to say that there is no couple onsen but there is couple room for massages. A total of 11 pools, 6 different pools for men and 5 different pools for the women, each providing a relaxing and therapeutic experience as well as unique health and beauty benefits is available. Today, we were being brought into the male onsen area.

INTRODUCING THE 6 DIFFERENT TYPES OF BATHS
SILK BATH (TEMP 38.5 - 39.5)
The silky hot water reacts with large amounts of micro-bubble containing hydrogen. These jets of tiny bubbles give the water a sensual and silky texture. The soothing nature of the bath helps to relax the muscles and alleviates problems such as rheumatic, arthritic aches and pains and mental stress. Enjoy the spa treatment and nourish body tissues, tighten the skin and improve skin elasticity.
SODA BATH (TEMP 38.5 - 39.5)
Yunomori's Soda Bath is the first of its kind in Southeast Asia. Featuring technology imported directly from Japan, the water is enriched with a high concentration of natural carbon dioxide, thus the name Soda bath. Soaking in this CO2-rich water can increase blood oxygen levels, improve circulation, reduce high blood pressure and also detoxify the blood.
BUBBLE BATH (TEMP 38.5 - 39.5)
The Bubble Bath is imbued with the nutrients of carefully balanced minerals. Its arranged temperature and a layer of foam provide a holistic and rejuvenating experience.

Try the Hot Bath at 41 to 44 Degree Celsius to help relief joints and muscular tension as well as detoxify the body.
COLD BATH (TEMP 17 - 19)
End your onsen experience with the Cold Bath after soaking in those hot baths for a while. The cold water will stimulate the body's natural energy and nerve endings. It can also boost anti-ageing effects by closing the pores and tightening the skin.
Sauna and Steam Room are located inside the onsen area. Feel free to enter after your onsen.
