Sunday! We started with brunch at Tanjong Beach Club at Sentosa, then moved to the lounge chairs at Tanjong Beach. There’s a high concentration of expats here, but for an escape from the city it’s pretty darn good. The beach is big, the water is warm and it’s even dog friendly with myriad breeds of mini, city dogs just as happy to have their toes in the sand as we were. From there we moved on to Spa Botanica, where for $45 SGD you can laze poolside (several to choose from), take a mud bath, walk a labyrinth or park it under an umbrella as you wait for your spa treatment. We left refreshed and ready to take on the city again, as we journeyed back toward Bugis. A little paradise is just a cab ride away.
