Laguna Spa

It is well known that Nusa Dua has a great selection of luxurious spas located at its various five-star hotels, resorts and villas and therefore there are plenty of places to sample as you unwind and relax after a busy day. A good place to start your pleasure seeking adventure is with The Laguna Spa at The Laguna Resort. The resort itself has already been presented with a multitude of awards (including Hotel of The Year 2007 courtesy of Starwood Hotels & Resorts Asia Pacific Division), and it’s clear from the recent improvements to their spa products and treatments that there are grand plans for the spa too.

The resort is located within the exclusive Nusa Dua enclave, only a few steps away from the tranquil beach. Spa guests can enjoy selected treatments in the privacy of the single spa villa, but the majority of treatments are carried out in the standard spa rooms in the hotel main building. Although on the whole the Laguna Spa is not as well appointed as some other spas in its league, the sheer range and quality of treatments more than make up for any shortcomings in layout. On offer are a wide range of therapies and spa rituals, which include varying massages, body, facial and beauty treatments, as well as aromatherapy and reflexology.

The internationally renowned ‘Thalgo’ range of marine beauty products from France have long been the staple products, along with traditional Javanese and Balinese body care essentials. However, the spa have recently made an exciting new addition to their collection in the form of the world’s leading professional face, body and spa brand Pevonia Botanica, and are currently the only spa in Bali to offer the full range of products and treatments utilising equipment specifically designed for this range. Using the botanical and marine extract filled products, therapists tailor treatments to your age, skin type and needs, and also recommended homecare products from the animal testing free and eco-friendly range, which are available to buy in the spa reception.

For a full scale beauty experience, try the Pevonia Botanica Aromatherapy Facial. Beginning with an anti-stress eye compress and proceeding with cleanser, papaya and pineapple enzyme mask and various other potions. The therapist talks you through the steps explaining the restorative properties of each product. The facial includes relaxing massage to the arms, hands, legs and feet to enhance the experience but you’ll have to wait a couple of days for the full result to be shown in the form of truly glowing, smooth, clear skin. In the meantime, you could choose a complementary body treatment such as the Aromatic Slat Glow and Moroccan Cocoon with Rassoul. Designed to restore your skin’s radiant glow, exfoliating sea salt enriched with ylang ylang, tangerine and lavender is scrubbed over your body and forms an ideal pre-treatment for the purifying and hydrating Moroccan Rassoul wrap. A warm mud, rich in volcanic ash, is applied to the skin before you are wrapped up in plastic and foil blankets to soak up the enriching minerals. After a brief scalp massage, and then a cool shower, dry body oil is smothered over your polished skin to crown the new smoother you.

With world-class products and talented, knowledgeable therapists, the spa embodies a superb retreat: the perfect location to relax, unwind and begin the journey towards total wellbeing.
