Day 1 – Your journey to finding spiritual wellness begins the moment you arrive at Spa Village Resort Tembok, Bali. Experience a welcome that says ‘Bali bliss’ like nothing else as you sip on a glass of chilled lime, mint and honey while your therapist treats you to a foot scrub using black volcanic sand straight from the beach. The Balinese believe negativity is absorbed through one’s feet so this soothing act of purification is surely the perfect start to your stay in paradise.
The ‘Return to Yourself’ retreat is perfect for lone travellers and those travelling in a group alike. The all-inclusive yoga and wellness package encourages reconnection with one’s true essence and the regaining of vitality. In this nurturing environment, you will be given the opportunity to become fully engaged in exploring regular and speciality yoga classes and expanding the mind through guided meditation. And after participating in one of the yoga classes why not opt for the waterfall excursion or a tour to beautiful Ponjok Batu Temple.
Could there be a more relaxing way to end the day than a stunning sunset cruise followed by starlight gazing – an innovative spa treatment that involves lying weightless on a floating platform in the middle of the resort pool, where you can simply take in the enormity of the universe and its innumerable twinkling stars overhead.
Day 2 – Start your day off on the right foot by enlivening your senses in Bali’s natural captivating beauty. On a ‘Backroads Bike Tour’ you’ll set out on an unforgettable ride of discovery, past rice paddies, villages and sacred pools to sacred Pura Pucak Sari temple, a seaside temple, where if you wish, you may pre-arrange a blessing and water ritual by a Balinese priest; before pedalling up and around the incredible Gunung Batur Volcano on your way to the quieter northern side of Bali.
For Chocolate and Coffee Lovers the Spa Village ‘Chocolate and Coffee Indulgence’ treatment is not one to miss. The treatment combines locally sourced organically grown cacao (high in antioxidants that help to neutralise free radicals that cause oxidation and contribute to cell and tissue damage) with coffee in a scrub to gently exfoliate and draw out impurities from the skin. Coffee also assists in microcirculation and provides astringency, toning the skin. The 100-minute Chocolate and Coffee Indulgence treatment starts with a gentle body polish, with a scrub made from chocolate and coffee and mixed with gentle fresh aloe vera. This is then followed by a relaxing Traditional Balinese Massage, a ritual that offers techniques which vary in tempo of acupressure, rolling motions, long strokes and percussion, providing an invigorating and energising experience for the body. Leave feeling soothed, relaxed and smelling good enough to eat!
Day 3 – Just another day in paradise, as you wake up to the peaceful atmosphere, warm sunshine, fresh air accompanied by the soothing sounds of the ocean. Why not spend the day enjoying a little pampering with one of the many indulgent revitalising spa treatments at the resort, including an authentic Balinese massage or a session of Mepijit – an acupressure-based treatment that combines traditional Balinese urut strokes with Indian head massage.
Get hands on with the local cuisine during a healthy cooking class at the resort’s spectacular Wantilan Restaurant. At your cooking class learn how to prepare some of the delicious and healthful Indonesian meals that are served to you daily, like red rice nasi goreng, freshly made almond milk or a power-packed green juice, while enjoying the restaurant’s stunning views of the ocean. After seeing for yourself how the meals are carefully prepared using only the best freshly sourced ingredients, why not enjoy dinner at the Wantilan Restaurant with a newly enlightened view of this impeccable menu. Whether relaxing or dining, experience the resonant healing ethos of celebrating local culture and honouring ancient remedies in this magical Spa Village Resort Tembok, Bali.
