Top Spa Retreats in Bali - Relax and Unwind with Bali's Best

Balinese spa retreats are renowned the world over for their therapeutic benefits. Set against the backdrop of the beautiful Balinese landscape, here are some things to look out for before you unwind.


Renewal Treatments

There is a wide variety of treatments available and the first part is to figure out what you want. Renewal treatments are recommended for those who want restorative benefits. Fans of body wraps may want to hunt for spas with a wide offering of wraps. Balinese spas have some unique body wrap offerings such as blueberry and soya wraps and chocolate and nuts wraps. Traditional Lulur is a popular treatment which has its roots in Java's royal courts and involves the use of spices to clean and soften the skin to make it glow. After your visit, your skin would have never felt better.


Healing and Ayurvedic Treatments

Healing treatments are also available to address whatever that ails you, starting from simple treatments such as detox to specialised treatments relying on indigenous plants. Ayurvedic treatments, in particular, focus on a holistic approach involving both the body and the mind. Balinese massage is also considered a holistic treatment as it is a combination of stretching, reflexology, acupressure and aromatherapy to achieve mental and physical wellness. Such holistic spa treatments are readily available in spas in Bali, including COMO Shambhala.


Salon Treatments

Balinese spas often allow you to channel your inner Arabian royalty by offering a multitude of luxurious salon treatments such as facials and hair treatments. High end spas often have professional aestheticians and their own nature inspired brands which are often worth a try. Spend a day pampering yourself with salon treatments and you can step out of the spa feeling fabulous.


Facilities Offered

When you are looking for hands on healing, it is also necessary to consider the other facilities offered by spas when you are browsing. Some spas offer yoga classes before the treatment or hot and cold plunge pools for you to soak your troubles away. Some spas also offer serene gardens for their guests to stroll through and enjoy some peace and quiet prior to their treatments. Alternatively, other spas offer spiritual treatments such as Water Temple Purification Ceremonies using blessed spring water for spiritual cleansing. Some spas even arrange for traditional Balinese healing by local healers where guests can seek the spiritual roots of their physical problems.


A Word of Caution

When it comes to spa treatments, hygiene standards are a pressing matter especially if you are considering one of the smaller spas. A quick online search of your spa of choice would reveal if there is anything you should be worried about. A little caution in choosing your spa retreat will allow you to enjoy the whole experience and gain that inner peace you were looking for.
Whether you are looking for inner peace, relaxed muscles or glowing skin; setting some time aside to visit a Balinese spa retreat is a must!
