Bali is one of the best places on earth to go for some pampering. There are quite literally Spas and beauty parlours on every street corner. The traditional Balinese massage is a beautifully relaxing experience; characterised by gentle, soothing strokes over your whole body. And there are numerous other rejuvenating health and beauty treatments available, from the Fish Pedicure – tiny red garra fish eat away at the dead outer layer of skin on your feet, to a full body scrub – using a clay mask made from Volcanic clay from the island to draw out impurities. It’s fun to try them all and an essential part of your holiday in Bali. Here we list our favourite Spa venues within 10-15 minutes of Sahana Villas. These Spas are tried and tested by us, guaranteed hygienic and have their own unique aspects that make visiting them a cut above your standard Balinese Spa.
The Shampoo Lounge
Located on the epicentre of one of Seminyak’s busiest intersections enter the Shampoo Lounge and you enter a haven of fun and professionalism, the perfect retreat to break up a hot day of sightseeing or shopping. True to its name, The Shampoo Lounge specialises in hair treatments. We love that it has a specific barbershop section providing an old fashioned barbering experience complete with a shave and hot towel.
Sitting pretty on Jalan Batu Bolong in the heart of very trendy Canggu, Amo Spa provides a full service environment with an extensive range of holistic beauty treatments, a hair salon, a Spa and Sauna overlooking the rice paddies and its own healthy restaurant on site. We can easily spend the whole day here and leave feeling pampered from head to toe.
Spring has three locations in Bali; our favourite is the Seminyak shop across the road from the W hotel on Jalan Petitenget. The sleek modernism of this location and the efficiency of the staff always make us feel very well looked after. Often there’s a live DJ playing here too so it’s a fun place to come and get a treatment then wander down to Potato Head or Ku De Ta, both in walking distance, for a sunset cocktail or three.
Well Being Spa
Famous for its organic beauty treatments and Pranic healing (bio energy healing), Wellbeing Spa is literally just minutes’ walk from Kilo Bali. A highly recommended Sunday afternoon is to have a delicious lunch at Kilo then stroll over to Wellbeing for an Essence of Wellbeing Package, consisting of a facial, cream bath & mani pedi. You will leave feeling renewed and refreshed.
Last but not least on our list of favourite indulgence spots is Therapy, Seminyak. Our ultimate treat is getting one of their 90 minute full body massages. The Panel Beat massage is a deep tissue treatment that releases the tensions and toxins that can accrue after a hard week. Therapy is an oasis of peace and rejuvenation that is a must for your Bali Spa experience.
