A two-storey building in the style of a traditional lumbung (rice barn) makes a dreamy spot for a massage at Villa Zelie. Professional therapists carry out spa and beauty treatments in the open-air downstairs area with its canopy of white linen or in the total privacy of the quaint attic-like upstairs. In the latter, choose between air-conditioning or a sea breeze (you can see the ocean from the bay window) and a soundtrack of rhythmic ocean waves or your choice of music. Alternatively, you can ask for massage beds to be set up in your room, or at the poolside. Before you sink into deep relaxation, ask staff to prepare a flower petal bath in your suite to extend the indulgence.
See your villa manager for a full spa menu and to request appointments (extra charges apply). Here is a sample of what to expect:
Release built up tension with a traditional Balinese massage. Using a combination of gentle stretches, acupressure and aromatherapy oils to stimulate the flow of blood, oxygen and energy around your body you will feel totally relaxed in no time.
- Foot reflexology
Foot reflexology is a natural healing art based on the principle that there are reflexes in the feet corresponding to every part of the body. Through application of pressure on these reflexes tension is relieved and circulation improved leaving you feeling balanced.
- Body scrub
A full body scrub will exfoliate and hydrate your skin leaving it soft and smooth. A rejuvenating scrub combines an abrasive material such as salt, coffee, rice bran or pecan hulls with essential oils to remove any impurities and make your skin glow.
Our hands and feet work hard for us every day but rarely get the attention they deserve. Treat them to a manicure or pedicure, which usually comes with the added bonus of a quick hand or foot massage.
