It’s easy to see why summer is everyone’s favourite season. The sun’s out in full force, the skies are spectacular shade of azure and the city’s filled with life. Cue the pool parties, decadent brunches, and balmy days by the beach.

Better yet, if your schedule permits a luxurious vacation down at the Maldives or Bahamas, and what better way to gear up for the season than at Palais Renaissance. Located in the heart of Orchard Road, the quintessential shopping destination offers a spectacular selection for every aspect of the finer things in life.

From designer furniture to new-age facials and a 5.70-carat diamond ring, here’s how to live the high life this summer at Palais Renaissance.

There couldn’t be a better time to hit the pool — or that white sandy Maldivian beach — than now, and you’ll want to make sure you’ve got your summer body down pat for that. If spending hours at the gym isn’t your thing, Bio Aesthetic Laser Clinic promises the same results by using high-intensity focused ultrasound heat to target the fat cells, permanently destroying them without harming the surface of the skin. The non-invasive treatment is followed by a skin tightening element that leaves you with a slimmer and more contoured silhouette — just in time for your well-deserved vacation.
