Yunomori Onsen & Spa, Leading Authentic Japanese Onsen in Southeast Asia Finally Arrives in Singapore!
I’m sure you’ve heard of the hype, it’s all over social media.
Was super honoured to be amongst the first to explore Yunomori Onsen & Spa (Yunomori)’s very first outlet at Kallang Wave Mall L2.
Yunomori is renowned for its unique experience of marrying both authetic Japanese and Thai therapies – onsen therapy and Thai spa treatments.
Using the natural healing properties of mineral water and benefits of spa treatments, these relaxing aquatic therapies can cater to the health needs of everyone!
Spanning 16,000 square feet, Yunomori boasts a total of 11 pools with six variations of bath
and other facilities such as sauna, steam bath, massage & spa treatment rooms, a dining café and a lounge. It is a place where you can enjoy the best of both worlds, as Yunomori offers a holistic retreat with a combination of authentic Japanese onsen and traditional Thai message.
Guests will be spoilt for choice with a wide variety of onsen baths available such as Soda spa, Silk bath, Jet bath, Bubble bath, Cold bath and Hot bath. From the simple and traditional to the modern and technological, each bath provides a relaxing and therapeutic experience as well as its unique health and beauty benefits.
Let me bring you on a tour around the place!
Forgot to take an actual photo of the entrance but it is very similar to this.
There’s a lot of wood and natural materials used in the onsen to create a very relaxing place of respite.
The yukatas available for males.
(and yes, you do need to remove all your clothes.
Only a small towel to wipe your sweat is allowed into the Onsen area!)
Female Yukatas are brighter in colour and are available in 2 sizes.
If you’re not comfortable going full monty (naked), you may request for a tube top and some undies that you can wear into the bathing pools.
There are complimentary lockers available for you to place your items and clothes
while you enjoy the facilities of the onsen.
There are also hangers provided to ensure that your clothes do not get crumpled.
So thoughtful!The locker works via a key fob so simply tap your fob on the black knob and twist.
Mobile phones are not allowed in the dressing and onsen area
(you wouldn’t want someone taking photos of you naked right?)
So please leave them in the locker!
Counters available to dry your hair, do your makeup etc.
These showers are super interesting cause you sit down on the stools provided to shower.
This is to prevent customers from spraying/splashing water at each other accidentally during a shower.
In house shampoo, conditioner and soap provided for use.
Their spa products by Puri Alchemy are 100% organic and chemical free.
The brand has won numerous awards as well.

These are the jet baths (39.5 – 41 deg)
which help take away all your stress!
The jet streams can stimulate blood circulation
Soda bath (38.5-39.5 deg)

The water is enriched with a high concentration of natural carbon dioxide

The bath has a soothing nature, helping to relax muscles and
alleviate problems such as rheumatic, arthritic aches, pains and mental stress.
Enjoy as the bath nourishes your body tissues, tighten the skin and improve skin elasticity!
This is the hot bath at 41-44 degrees to help relief joints
and muscular tension, as well as detoxify the body.
The hot bath is only available for the men.
Cold Bath to cool down
The water is set to 17 to 19 degrees.
The water will stimulate the body’s natural energy and nerve endings.
It can also boost anti-ageing effects by closing the pores and tighten the skin!
I’ve also heard that going from the hot bath to the cold bath can help improve your blood circulation!
So it is advised to cool down using the cold bath or rain showers once you’re done with the hot baths.
