5 Of The Best Day Spas In Bali

With day spas popping up left, right and centre in the spiritual hub of Bali, this beach destination has become a haven for all things relaxation and indulgence. But with such a plethora of choices, how do you decide? The frustration of choosing where to plant your body for a three-hour spa marathon could (quite ironically) give you a headache. Not to worry, take a few deep breaths and make your way to one of these relaxation stations – if you can pull yourself away from the pool.


#1 Prana Spa

We’ll kick it off with a guaranteed winner – Prana Spa is located in uber cool Seminyak and will delight the inner Arabian princess in us all. Decked out in opulent Middle Eastern inspired decor, Prana is rich in culture, colour and indulgence. Peruse the menu of spa options while you kick back in the spa lounge with a cheeky glass of champers, then make your way towards their signature hot and cold plunge pools for some serious soaking. To get the real deal experience, hop on over to the in-house yoga studio for a quick class before your massage or treatment.

#2 Jari Menari

For a true introduction to the wonders of Balinese massage, you’d be crazy to miss Jari Menari in Nusa Dua. The term jari menari translates to ‘dancing fingers’, which makes sense once you experience the wonder of this choreographed massage ritual. The coup de gras is the wondrous ‘four hands massage’ which will turn even the roughest and toughest of visitors into a relaxed piece of wobbly jelly. This is one therapeutic massage you’ll want over and over again – and lucky for you, Jari Menari actually teach a one-day massage workshop so you can learn the art of ‘dancing fingers’ for yourself.

#3 Acqua Perla Spa

Stepping into the Acqua Perla Spa is, as the website states, like “accepting a VIP invitation to Alice In Wonderland“. A fitting description of one of the most futuristic and unique day spas in Seminyak. Attached to the Double Six Hotel, which also boasts a killer rooftop bar, the Acqua Perla Spa has an array of treatments ready to sooteh even the weariest of beach goers. Spend some time in the circular Sensorial Chamber before undergoing a ‘Stress Melter’ massage which will surely melt all your worries away.

#4 Chill Reflexology

Reflexology foot massages aren’t everyone’s cup of tea, but if you’re after something that will help you achieve your own personal ~zen~ moment, this is just the ticket. Your treatment will include reflexology of the feet, ankles and calves as well as a head, neck and shoulders acupressure massage, so after days of walking around town this is probably the best way to get those weary muscles back in action. You even get your own personal iPod so you can kick back to whatever music helps you relax… Enya? Metallica? Whatever floats your boat.
