The secrets of the Bali Spa world are not so secret as they are discreet. The spa world’s secret services lie in the treatments that enhance and highlight the natural beauty of the client, adding glow and sparkle, supporting the aesthetic improvement from top lip to little toe.

Every ‘body’ can take advantage of non-intrusive treatments that will boost self confidence and leave you feeling rejuvenated.

So let’s start at the very top:

Hair Highlights and Treatments.

This is the tropics so expert hair care is essential. It is often sunny so a little gold always looks good, and a deep conditioning treatment can boost tired hair or beach hair in no time. Bali is literally spoiled for hair salons and the best of the best are fully equipped to do so much more than just cut and blow dry. Natural looking sun-kissed highlights and softer ombre shades are easy to care for and wear well on holiday and sometimes the time away is all you need to opt for change. Rob at Rob Petoom, Ryan and Karen at Glo Day Spa and Max at Spoiled will all give you the heads up on what is best for your hair.  For that party dash of glitz and glamour head to Bodyworks for some Angel Hair .

Lashes and Brows

The shape of a good brow line can make a face look younger and stronger while the addition of eyelash extensions overcomes the need for mascara at the beach or pool and for extra special occasions add that doe-eyed dimension to seduction.

Think Pink on Jalan Batu Belig has not only brought New York Salon style to the island but they are gaining a great reputation for their brow threading and eyelash extensions. The choice of silk or mink and the combination of lengths can keep the extensions looking natural and lustrous, while the gentle touch of threading across the brows will give more focus to the eyes and the arch of the brow.

Lips 

Lip plumping can be achieved through non invasive massage, the application of external creams containing plumping extracts, eating chili – our favorite –  or using the expert services of medi-spas such as Soliel who use dermal fillers that can give long lasting results. There is a choice of long term or medium term fillers, and these fillers often slow down further damage as they provide a cushioned surface that prevents deeper lines occurring. 

In the Middle…

DaLa Spa at Alaya Resort Ubud.

Indulge yourself in a full body treatment at this discreetly pretty resort on the edge of Ubud’s central area. With a range of treatments designed to rejuvenate and restore the body and mind, tranquility is the secret service here. It is a step off the main street but a world away from even the Ubud traffic. Leave your thoughts behind you as you allow yourself the time to unwind, and step back into a gentler space where their care of your body is the only care you have.

Attending to the Intimate Areas

Intimate grooming needs to be undertaken with a level of trust, a guarantee of professionalism and in many situations a rapid approach that leaves the attended topiary looking freshly manicured with no unevenness or developing reactions. Apply only gentle body oils post waxing and avoid hot showers for a day, then when showering use a gentle exfoliate to allow for smooth regrowth. A word of advice, never tolerate a warmer product than you can stand on sensitive areas, this is not the time to be tough, hot applications can not only burn skin but can break the hair at the surface rather than ease it from its roots causing a rougher regrowth. 

And Now the Tips of the Toes..

People often complain about their feet, yet these peds take us where we want to go, let us dance the night away and will sprint us to the ATM anytime we need more… so let’s treat our feet right with an indulgent foot massage at Chill at the Villas in Jalan Kunti followed by a perfect pedicure just a moment away at Bodyworks, who have turned the pedicure into an art form.
