At a time when our collective well-being is more important than ever, Bali is ready to welcome those seeking a fresh start and renewed energy, with the opening of the new Healing Village Spa at Four Seasons Resort Bali at Jimbaran Bay.
Emerging from an 18-month-long renovation with a contemporary Balinese design by Australian architect Nick Juniper and soothing interiors by Japan’s Yasuhiro Koichi, The Healing Village Spa fuses ancient wisdom with modern science.
Revolutionary treatments combine light and sound, thermal and colour therapy, plants, and gemstones to complement the traditional healing for which Bali is renowned.
The two-storey building – suspended over water and 70 percent bigger than before at 2,000 square metres – has 10 all-suite spa rooms including the Illume Room for a fully immersive experience. It features a heated quartz-sand bed for inversion therapy and undulating massage, coloured light therapy, gemstones, and crystal singing bowls, and surround sound original music.
Another Bali first, the Longevity Garden is a private DIY treatment space in a lush “secret” garden. Couples can take their time to enjoy self-directed healing and nourish each other with local organic products including Indonesian volcanic mud wraps and coconut soap.
There’s also a private steam room and double sun loungers equipped with infra-red gemstone therapy mats. A cleanse under the powerful two-metre-high (6.5 feet) waterfall shower is followed by ice bath immersion – recommended for three minutes at sub-10 degrees Celsius to release endorphins, tighten pores, speed up muscular recovery, and invigorate from head to toe.
Regional Director of Spa Luisa Anderson says the Balinese therapists draw on their culture’s ancient wisdom and healing rituals to deliver transformative experiences, supported by innovations in product and equipment. “The seven healing attributes of water, community, gemstones, light, sound, plants, and love are woven into the tapestry of the new Healing Village Spa, and unite cultural elements with the latest in emerging science.”
On The Healing Village Spa’s upper level, beautiful ocean views and state-of-the-art equipment inspire a work-out at the Fitness Centre with the Resort’s personal trainers. Fully-certified yoga masters offer sessions at the studio or the ocean’s edge, including AntiGravity, Yin and Restorative Hot Stone Yoga, as well as Balinese Sekala Yoga, which ends with a blessing and energy cleansing by the Resort’s Balinese-Hindu priest.
To mark the opening of The Healing Village Spa, Four Seasons Resort Bali at Jimbaran Bay has launched new “Waves of Wellness” packages including accommodation in a private pool villa, daily breakfast, and a daily program of spa treatments and experiences.
Guests can choose from the 3-Day Reset or 5-Day Refocus valid until March 31, 2022, with the reassurance of Four Seasons flexible booking policy globally.
