I received a gift card from my sister for Christmas last year. It was for a 60-minute float at Palm Ave float club for my hubby and myself. We delayed our trip to the float club for several months due to covid-19 but finally decided to go down and utilise the facilities.
The staff was very efficient and friendly, and after checking in via safe entry, we were guided to our floatation rooms. The pods were huge! The team showed me all the facilities in the room, like the shower area and floats for the neck because, during floating, some may feel straining their necks, so the float was provided to ease the tension allowing you to fully relax. The water is deep enough to allow you to float, but the depth is nothing to worry about for people like myself who aren’t good swimmers. There are earplugs available to prevent salt from entering your ears. There is also a button within the pod that you could press for assistance from the staff.
The warm water has a calming effect. There is relaxing music at the beginning and ambient lighting before it is lights out, and the music stops allowing you to fully relax. To be honest, I began my first couple of minutes playing with the water and enjoying the fact that I could float. I tried a few positions before I could relax for the rest of the hour. The music and lights turned on when the hour was up, so I hopped out of the pod to get a good shower to remove all the salt off my body. The salt crystalises once it dries, so make sure you wash thoroughly.
Hubby was in a separate room and did enjoy his float session. Would we like to go back for another float? Most likely, no, don’t get us wrong, it was enjoyable but at a slightly pricy range of SGD$89.00 an hour for a single float, but it makes a good gift idea for someone you know needs to relax and enjoy this experience.
