Spa Alila might have just been operational in 2016, but it has already been included as “The Must-Spa’ List to Experience in Bali 2016″. Personalised treatments from the heart, fresh local ingredients, highly skilled masseuse and a luxurious compound contribute to the success of Spa Alila, which promises nothing short of a sublime spa experience that will leave guests feeling rejuvenated and relaxed with a renewed sense of well-being.
This opulent spa destination is located on the first floor of the main building, with entrance facing the ancient temple that was previously mentioned, in the heart of the resort. Before treatments, you are given the option of choosing your massage oils. These are made in-house and specially created to help soothe your body, mind and soul. I went for the relaxing massage blend which consists of soothing lavender, geranium and chamomile, mandarin, marjoram and patchouli essential oils, which help unravel stress, calm the emotions and enhance moods. After which, it was a tranquilising 90 minutes of Alila Signature Massage.
Skilful hands and focused energy deliver body-melting techniques such as lomi-lomi, acupressure, deep tissue, muscle movement and gentle stretching – all of which were essential and perfect for a city dweller like me, who does not stretch on a daily basis.
Alila Experiences is an exclusive excursion for guests to explore Bali’s Southwest coast in a fully restored Vintage 1980 Volkswagen Kombi.
