MUST-TRY SPA TREATMENTS IN BALI

Story by Judy Champman on DestinAsian.com

Wellness and balance have long been integral to Balinese culture. For a spa experience with plenty of local flair, pamper yourself with this signature treatment the next time you visit.

Seminyak Soother

Don’t miss an opportunity to try the signature massage at Alila Seminyak, a 90-minute infusion of deep tissue muscle movement, acupressure, and lomi-lomi techniques that feels more therapeutic than your typical head to toe number. Be warned, the treatment is so relaxing it might even put you to sleep. All practitioners are trained by a native therapist from Seminyak who practiced his craft on this very spot for more than 12 years, long before the conception of the resort.

BALI TRAVEL GUIDE

Story by Travel + Leisure

Bali has been a popular tourist destination for travelers from all over the world, but especially Australians and Americans, for the past few decades. As a result, the island is well accustomed to meeting the needs of international tourists. Travel + Leisure’s Bali travel guide will help you make the perfect trip to see Bali’s ancient and natural wonders.

Hotel
Bali is full of high-end hotels that effortlessly blend Balinese culture with modern, state-of-the-art amenities. Service standards are exceptional on the island, from the smallest family-run hotel to the most lavish resorts, and competition is tight.

Alila Manggis
Yoga practitioners and nature buffs flock to the volcanic-sand shore of Alila Manggis, an hour east of the trendy Seminyak beach resorts and adjacent to Mount Agung, an active volcano considered Bali’s most sacred peak. All 55 rooms face the Bali Sea and overlook a lush central garden with coconut trees, white frangipani, and pink bougainvillea—the setting for the resort’s complimentary yoga sessions (all levels are welcome). The rooms, with batik accents, are set in two-story thatched houses that surround a palm-fringed pool; each has its own shaded private terrace. One excursion to request: ask the resort to arrange a traditional jukung fishing boat to take you out on the water before the crack of dawn to watch the sunning sunrise over Lombok Island.

Alila Seminyak
A more upscale alternative to the boisterous bar and clubbing resort of Kuta, Seminyak has stylish cafes, bars, restaurants, chic shops, and a wide expanse of white sandy beach. The Alila Seminyak is the brand’s newest hotel in Bali, with a modern design, tropical plants lining the open-air public spaces, and an ancient temple. The 240 modern rooms and suites are designed to maximize space, with wide mirrors fitted on the opposite side of the rooms and well-sized balconies with unobstructed sea views. The hotel’s Beach Bar is the perfect relaxed spot to watch the sunset, and offers specially paired canapés and cocktails from 5pm to 7pm.

Satisfy your five senses with 10-course dinner from Alila Uluwatu’s own, Chef Marc Lorés Panadés at their new QUILA dining room.

This exclusive dining experience is limited to a maximum of 10 guests each night within QUILA’s intimate five-table indoor setting. So reservation is a must. You should also share your dietary requirements in advance, so Chef Marc can prepare the food accordingly.
