DaLa Spa is a name that needs no introduction. Its many trophies from several prestigious award ceremonies have cemented its status as one of the most sought-after spa destinations in Bali. The interior and the whole face of the spa rooms, for one, are inimitable. Think of glowing chandeliers in a royal palace haven where a posh marble bathtub sits before two well-polished massage beds. The tasteful décor is enhanced with touches of finest Balinese fabrics. Have we mentioned the multifarious fragrant floral petals prepared for your session in these snug rooms?
Starting this April DaLa Spa introduces a new Cendana Healing Massage that highlights the therapeutic benefits of sandalwood. For 75 minutes you’ll enjoy a royal footbath and blessing ritual, with a steamed sandalwood baton gently rolled over your body. The techniques of the treatment are thoroughly applied, enabling you to enjoy the versatility of the baton, which extends to the pressure points on your palms and feet. It’s worth noting how unique the touch experience between your skin and the sandalwood is – apparently it proves to be wonderful at generating silkier, smoother skin. It is also an analgesic drug. Wrapping up the indulgence is a generous hand massage that tugs and kneads the muscles, as well as prolonging the warmth from the sandalwood roll.
“DaLa” means leaf in Sanskrit, and the ingredients stay true to the core philosophy. Don’t be surprised when frangipani petals are sprinkled on you, or five more kinds of colourful flowers are immersed in the comforting footbath. Sandalwood oil is smeared over your body before every roll of the baton, making sure that every inch of your skin absorbs the therapeutic healing benefits.
Bamboo baton treatments have become a trend these days, but DaLa Spa takes the experience up a notch further with the sandalwood therapy. It’s the first of its kind on the island, and of course the sensation is totally different, if not better. Besides all that, we have a soft spot for DaLa Spa due to its beautifully-crafted facility and detailed services. Even when opting for the new sandalwood treatment, the amicable team here has set up a special playlist on the iPod. How would you beat that?
