Seminyak

You push the door to enter the Kaiana Spa and immediately get confused: this place looks nothing like a tropical beauty parlour, instead, you feel like you’ve stepped into a high-end salon somewhere in Notting Hill, maybe. This urban spa looks impeccable: spotless white, sleek, classy and sassy, compete with shiny parquet floor and flashing crystal chandeliers. The only thing missing is the corner with Jo Malone perfumes, that would fit into this interior just perfectly fine, but trust us, they know how to please the picky noses here – more on this in a minute!

It’s so nice, fresh and quiet here it literally feels like a relief after the hustle and bustle of the central Seminyak. The staff ladies in crispy uniform are murmuring something soothing, taking you down the corridor into one of the nicely chilled treatment rooms. And once you’ve shed your clothes and drop on the massage bed, the rest is a blur – there is nothing sweeter than a 1,5 hrs long nap in the middle of a screaming hot day.

But honestly, as much as we love sleeping like babies while being pampered, it’s kind of a pity to miss all the SPAction. They use beautiful products here that are a sensational pleasure. Propolis or papaya & pineapple facial, anyone? Lush avocado cream bath for those luscious locks, maybe? Or how about the Dulce Rosa ritual, where every single treatment is enriched with the opulent rose aroma? Yeah, we definitely not saying no to that one! It starts with the rose-scented foot bath, then your whole body is being washed and scrubbed with the special fragrant powder so the skin becomes squeaky clean and glowing – and also smells like you’re no less than Cleopatra on her beauty day. And then – ah, the bliss! – the deep, relaxing massage to follow and lull you to that sweet semi-conscious condition of a cat lazing in the afternoon sun. Oh Bali, we love you for the days like this!
