It was a busy work day but I’d instead found myself lying below swaying palm trees, lulled into a state of bliss by the healing sounds of Tibetan singing bowls and the lively chirping of birds. Earlier on, we enjoyed a breathwork class by homegrown alternative healing company The Senses Therapy. With my mind calm and breath steady, I felt ready for anything.

If this media preview was anything to go by, the upcoming Zentosa Fest happening from June 3 to 30 looks set to be a relaxing treat for urban warriors like myself. Held in celebration of Sentosa’s 50th birthday and Wellness Festival Singapore, the festival will transform the island resort into a 500-hectare retreat with more than 50 wellness experiences.

Hang out at the Festival Village

The Festival Village at Palawan Green will host masterclasses, sports workshops, and outdoor performances from June 3 to 19. Highlights include the Make Every Move Count workshop, where participants can have their mobility and movement assessed by accredited coaches to reduce likelihood of injury; the daily True Fitness Hour featuring a rotation of group classes like Yoga Flow and Zumba; as well as the National Steps Challenge, where festivalgoers can earn sure-win rewards and stand to win lucky draw prizes just by staying active.

Meanwhile, express your creativity by painting a large-scale mural, making paper puppets, and designing communal art boards. Those hoping to delve into various aspects of wellness can check out talks by experts and personalities like baby-and-adult sleep expert Zoe Chu and singer-songwriter Crystal Goh.

Bring your family to the annual Dad’s Day Out

As part of Zentosa Fest, the annual Dad’s Day Out will be held on June 18 and 19, where festivalgoers can participate in a family challenge that incorporates various elements of a healthy and resilient lifestyle. Plus, they can pledge their commitment to family and personal wellness by symbolically tying a ribbon to the suspension bridge that leads to the “Stress Stop” at the Southernmost Point of Continental Asia.

Relax at the Stress Stop

The Stress Stop, as its name suggests, is a relaxing beachfront area offering workshops to help one keep stress at bay. Guests can reconnect with themselves spiritually and emotionally through meditation, breathwork, and soundbaths. They’ll also be able to participate in a cacao ceremony that’s rooted in the holistic healing practices of ancient Aztecs and Mayans.

Hoping to cool off in the water? Join aquabiking sessions with The Ripple Club, as well as FloatFit classes by Abvolution. While beginner-friendly, both classes are great for boosting one’s cardio and core strength.

Go shopping at the Festive Market

Those who prefer getting hands-on should make a beeline for the Festival Market in front of Palawan Kidz City. There’ll be a sewing workshop that promotes mindfulness, family-friendly workshops featuring Captain Happy and the Bunny family, as well as an outdoor bazaar happening from Fridays to Sundays in partnership with Sunday Social. Shop for natural bath products by Escential The Body Tonic, microgreens from Verdura Pod, nut and plant milk from The Better Milk, among others.

Fuel up at the Tuckshop

When peckish, head to the Tuckshop to enjoy tasty and healthy items like wholemeal pancake breakfast set, Korean air-fried boneless chicken, Nonya kuehs, and more. Festivalgoers can enjoy a 20% discount when purchasing their meals with a Mastercard credit or debit card.
