Giving yourself a treatment once a while is needed, especially during your holiday. And just like any other ordinary girl, I always love the idea to have one day escape for head to toe pampering in this so called heaven named SPA.
Having spa in beauty nature of Bali has become every girl’s dream. Balinese people know it well thus you could find plenty spa houses in the island range from small to big, standard to exclusive, cheapest to expensive.
My simple dream comes true when I got to try a real Balinese spa during my visitation to Bali. I went to Taman Air spa, one of those well known spa houses in the island located at the heavy traffic Sunset Road. This spa operated under Avilla Hospitality, together with other 14 properties in Bali.
STAIR WAY TO WONDERLAND
It was so peaceful when I arrived at Taman Air Spa, friendly staff greeted and explained about what they have at the house. The spa was quite huge, with white and blue lobby and cozy gazebo waiting room. Went down to the stair way, a beautiful open door water park approaching with a small fountain made from rock lied down in the middle. This park becomes the entrance way to get into 14 spa room surrounding the place. They also have 8 massage rooms for couple and single located at the second floor. My room located at the back of the park so walking down through the park pretty much made me excited to begin the spa.
STEPPED IN TO MY WONDERLAND
And here was the wonderland! Thank you to Taman Air Spa, I got a big couple room with two therapist at the moment (although I was alone). The room welcomed me with sounds of water and typical of Balinese relaxing music. The nature inspired room completed with two single sofas, two therapy beds, outdoor bathroom and shower, outside garden with quite big gazebo, and PRIVATE JAZZUCHI! I guess the most exciting thing in the room was the caps lock one, made me want to get into the tub once I saw it 🙂
WHEN RENEW AND REVIVE WORKS
I picked a Renew and Revive package with five steps treatment from foot bath to flower bath. This spa last for 120 minutes and cost IDR 425.000 (exclude taxes). Just like any other spa, I begin my treatment with footbath in warm water. Then, Trisna (my therapist) asked me to pick which massage oil I wanted to use; circulating, relaxing, slimming, and muscle relieve. I chose relaxing oil since it smells refreshing from others and I felt a bit tired at that time. And the massages begin!
The massage was okay. It was slow but powerful enough, typical of Balinese massage and they called it Taman Air Signature Massage. In the middle of treatment, Trisna also made sure that I enjoy the massage by asking whether she pushed too hard or not.
After the massage, they continued the treatment with lulur body scrub and yogurt body mask, just like any other usual spa. It then ended with my favorite part of all, flower bath in private jazzuchi!
While having my time with jazzuchi, the therapist prepared a cup of ginger tea and slices of tropical fruits in the gazebo which I enjoyed very much after my bath. Life completed.
STOMACH TREATMENT AFTER SPA
I have the earliest spa at 09.00 and ended with empty stomach because I skipped my breakfast. After the treatment, I planned to stroll around Sunset Road to look for my late breakfast but unexpectedly, they served food and beverages menu at the waiting room! Well, the price was not friendly and there only less than 5 choices of food. But it was helpful for those who starve in hunger.
ONE STOP DESTINATION FOR TOURIST
Becoming one stop destination for tourist especially Chinese, Taman Air Spa has opened in early morning at 09.00 until night at 23.00. They even have a special guest relation officer who can speak English and Mandarin fluently.
