9 ways to recharge your health & wellness at Changi Airport

January 24, 2019 Airport No Comments Email Email

1. Get moving with a walk around the terminals

Long-haul flights can leave the body feeling drained and lethargic, so why not get moving with a brisk walk. Changi’s terminals 1, 2 and 3 are all connected in the transit area and together, they offer travellers an eight kilometre walk to stretch their muscles and keep the circulation flowing – an important factor when constrained to an aeroplane seat for a considerable amount of time. The walk takes approximately seventy minutes one-way, with the use of travelators. Alternatively, if time is of the essence, you can take the Skytrain to any terminal and tour its mesmerising collection of local and international artwork, differing across terminals.

2. Be a conscious traveller and recharge your devices in an eco-friendly way

Conscious travellers who are in need of a recharge can jump on one of the stationary exercise bikes located in Terminal 3 (opposite B gates) to charge their electronic devices. This Eco Renewable Energy initiative not only reduces Changi’s carbon footprint, it also gets the body moving. Fun fact – it’s 1% charge for 1 min of cycling!

3. Book a room to catch up on quality sleep

For uninterrupted rest and relaxation, travellers should look no further than one of Changi’s transit hotels. Rooms can be booked for a minimum of six hours and guests can check-in without having to clear immigration. With room rates starting at just S$60, Changi’s state-of-the-art transit hotels are located across  terminals 1, 2 and 3, including Aerotel Airport Transit Hotel, Ambassador Transit Hotel and JetQuay Suite. For those with a longer stopover or early / late departure times, the Crown Plaza Hotel located in the public area is directly connected to Changi’s Terminal 3, offering all the comfort and convenience needed. Additionally, in the first half of 2019, the 130-room YOTELAIR will open on the fourth floor of the highly-anticipated Jewel Changi Airport, complete with comfortable, affordable and smartly-designed cabins. Perfect for the busy international traveller that enjoys self-check in kiosks and flexible check-out times.

4. Indulge in a free massage

Massage away aches and pains at the free massage chairs at Changi. They are available in the transit areas of terminals 1, 2 and 3 and are customised to target areas of concern, whether it be a foot massage or a full body massage. Tip: each massage cycle lasts for approximately 15 minutes and travellers are not limited to how long they can spend on the chairs.

5. Get back to nature

It’s scientifically proven that spending time with nature has a positive effect on both mental and physical wellbeing, and there’s no shortage of greenery at Changi. Head off on a nature trail around the airport’s terminals and let the themed gardens brighten up your day! Catch some sunshine and a healthy dose of vitamin D at the Sunflower Garden where, at any one time, there are around 500 sunflowers and flowers from related species on display. Located in Terminal 2, Departure Transit Lounge, Level 3 Transit Area. Fun fact: the sunflowers are all grown in Changi’s on-site nursery. Every month, the nursery produces 2000 pots of sunflowers to maintain the garden.

6. Unwind at the spa

For those with a longer layover, be sure to visit Spa Express or Be Relax and enjoy a relaxing massage or foot reflexology session. Here, travellers can escape into a private treatment room for a calming hot stone massage as well as acupressure and anti-jet-lag facial treatments that will help to relieve any body tension.

7. Get pampered at the Shilla Beauty Loft

Indulge in a pamper session at the Shilla Beauty Loft in Terminal 3, where four luxury beauty brands are located – Chanel, Dior Beauty House, Luxury Skincare Bar by La Prairie, and SK-II PITERA™ Lounge. Travellers can receive a complimentary makeover with Dior, a complimentary treatment with any product purchased from La Prairie, or treat themselves to a full-service massage or facial at SK-II.

8. Take a power nap

Sometimes all that’s needed to recharge the batteries is a power nap and every terminal at Changi is equipped with snooze lounges for this exact reason. The lounges are completely free and very comfortable! Tip: they are open to all travellers on a first come first serve basis and there’s no limit to how long travellers can rest in the lounge.

9. Watch the koi

Chill out by watching the koi swim gracefully at one of Changi’s many ponds. Koi have long been associated with abundance and wealth in feng shui and are commonly housed in establishments around Singapore, including the iconic Fullerton Hotel. At Changi, you can learn a few things about koi, and the kids can even lend a hand if you happen to be around at feeding time. There are five ponds altogether with a total of 85 koi, which can be found in Changi’s terminals 2, 3 and 4.
