Passage New York – A Boutique Spa With Fashion Sense

Passage New York

I received an invitation from Passage New York which they are willing to give me one session of free massage in return for an review for their spa. However, as the entitlement was only for females customers only, I had to rope in my girl friend for the review which I took two weeks to confirm due to my busy work schedule.

Calming Experience

Despite located in the bustling business district, one feels calm when you have entered the spa, where there is serenity and soft background calming music. Greeted by the friendly staff, it just let you forget hectic work routine and give you a reason to smile on.

While my girl friend was being ushered to her massage room, the friendly staff show me around the spa and explained in details the services which they are providing. To my surprise, the spa has been around in the area for more than a decade and despite the competitive market nowadays, Passage New York has already proven their strength and services in long years of servicing.

Most of the staff has been working since the opening of spa and they have great products and services knowledge which they are promoting to the clients which I believe why they have many returning customers. Furthermore, their skilled certified therapists are trained properly to ensure customers leave the spa with a pleasant spa experience. I believe this factor is lacking in the spa industry whereby most of the recent players are looking profits through hard selling of spa packages rather than their services.

Starting out as a single storey facial and massage spa, they managed to expand their premises during the last few years to a two storey facial and massage spa, together with a door front fashion boutique. This unique combination definitely produce an extraordinary experience to the customers.  Their current premises holds 14 facial treatment rooms, 7 individual massage rooms and 2 couple massage rooms.

Despite being a female only spa, Passage New York allows females that sign up packages to bring along their spouse / boyfriend for their massage and facial services, which they can deduct from the same spa package. Talking about this, the friendly staff was not convinced that I would be able to write a good review without experiencing the massage myself, thus they have exceptionally willing to schedule another round of massage session for me before I write a review of it. My girl friend, on other hand, seldom go for body massage has praised the therapists of her skills and was very satisfied with the experience.

Facial Products

One of the reason which Passage New York has been placed first place by their customer is their organic plant-based facial products which they have selected carefully for customers who have sensitive skin problems. Their products has also been proven to work in line with some of the treatments from doctors that helps to reduce skin sensitivity. Passage New York also respect the privacy of customer and they have several individual consultation rooms for query on Spa and facial treatments.

Fashion Boutique

Putting in effort as a complement to their facial and spa services, their boutique are also a no nonsense effort put in as well. Passage New York has engaged marketing designers to source for exquisite dresses and handbags from overseas. It creates an ultimate fashion sense which you would not find in general stores in Singapore. Though the fashion boutique is incorporate as a sideline business to their spa, they also provides tailor services to customer who bought the dresses and alteration can be done in the spa itself and be collected during their next visit. What a thoughtful act !

It is definitely a place which executive could shoved away their mobile phone for a while and enjoy the tranquil of the spa. Furthermore, it is walking distance from Raffles MRT and Tanjong Pagar MRT, it would not cause much hassle to travel long way for a good retreat for yourself.

Feet Haven Reflexology at East Coast Road (Berishiok Review)

Feet Haven Reflexology is tucked away in a old shophouse along East Coast Road. The spa parlour stands out from the line of shophouses with its unique see through shop front and its welcoming signboard. Upon setting foot into this little haven, this place immediately exudes a hint of homeliness, that instantly shaves off all that uncertain tension that needed to be rubbed off, from a long, hard week at work and calmed by the friendly owners and massuers. The owner greeted us politely and promptly offered us ginger tea to keep our body warm.

Despite being a small massage parlour, the place was packed with customers, with more waiting to get their massage fix. We were early for our appointment, so the friendly owners managed to squeeze an one hour session of foot reflexology and body massage for each of us respectively.

Foot Reflexology

Skilled masseur concentrating in the foot reflexology.

And so, a tub of warm water was quickly carried out by the masseur and he added some therapeutic herbs into the water which he pointed out helps with blood circulation in the feet and the back. The therapist patiently started the foot massage and he applied adequate pressure on areas of my feet and of course throughout the massage, kicked up a nice little chat with my friend. He has been in this line for more than 30 years and experienced in foot reflexology. He knows exactly the points to be pressed on and adequately pointed out various parts of my friend’s sole to address the discomfort he was having on his body. Armed with a treasure trove of massage therapy experience, he executed precise acupressuring on my friend’s feet, and cheerfully pointed out the discomfort zones of his body, which apparently amazed my friend with his expertise. He then proceeded to point out the various points in the foot and sole, and on which part of the body would they match with.

Body Massage


The massage bed is located right at the back of the spa. Sorry for the blurry image. 

Meanwhile, I was going through the body massage session in one corner of the room and the massage therapist is doing a really good job. In the initial stage of the acupressure massage, the therapists could already discern which part of the body was aching and points of discomfort I was having. Not only so, he was applying adequate force that did not cause excessive pain during the massage and prompted me if the strength he is using is too strong for me. He was kneading my shoulders and I fell asleep without even noticing it. While i was asleep, I could still feel the therapist working through the aching areas on my body. Upon waking up, I felt totally refreshed and had a sensation of lighter shoulders and a rejuvenated, tireless back.

If you are a tourist looking for a location that has reasonably cheap and good food, relaxation and shopping, the Santa Grande Hotel would be a great place to stay in. With its british colonial-era facade, it is a wonderful convenience for tourists nearby.

It would be better that you can call in to make an appointment with Feet Haven before heading down, especially during the weekends as they have a considerable crowd coming in for their massage services.

They have a signature massage called the Shiok Basic Blend which consist of 45 minutes of foot reflexology and 15 minutes of shoulder and neck massage only at $38.

Additionally, they also have a lunch time promotion which guests can enjoy a 40 minutes Foot Massage at only $20 or 60 mintes Foot Reflexology at $30
*Valid only on the weekdays, 12-3pm, excluding Public Holidays.
