To re­cover from all our trekking around the is­land, we sought restora­tion and pam­per­ing with one of the newly re­vamped Sig­na­ture Rit­u­als at the exclusive The Spa at The Le­gian Bali, where guests can in­dulge in the Well­ness Cen­tre prior to their treat­ment.

There are few things more di­vinely in­dul­gent than a visit to The Spa at The Le­gian Bali. Away from the of­ten fre­netic pace of mod­ern life and the inces­sant noise and de­mands for your at­ten­tion, The Spa is a true sanc­tu­ary; a place where the fo­cus is on you: your well­be­ing, your com­fort and your body.

This exclusive palace of pam­per­ing, also home to the re­sort's Well­ness Cen­tre, has a serene, peace­ful am­bi­ence with rich teak, nat­u­ral hues, dap­pled shim­mer­ing sun­light, heav­enly scents and a host of fa­cil­i­ties aimed at your phys­i­cal and men­tal nur­tur­ing and health.

This quintessen­tially el­e­gant Ba­li­nese des­ti­na­tion has just six spa suites, a sun­lit man­i­cure-pedi­cure room with views across the lush gar­den, a fully equipped gym­na­sium, per­sonal train­ers, warm and cool in­door plunge pools, sauna and steam rooms, daily Hatha yoga ses­sions and a re­lax­ation room to re­cover from your ex­er­tions.

Set in the re­sort's South Gar­den, over­look­ing the beach and with views across the sun-rip­pled ocean, the Spa and Well­ness Cen­tre en­ve­lope you with a warm wel­come and highly per­son­alised ser­vice.

The ex­clu­siv­ity of The Spa and its re­cently up­dated range of sig­na­ture rit­u­als pro­vide guests with im­mer­sive, be­spoke treat­ments that can be tai­lored to suit your per­sonal cir­cum­stances.

The per­son­alised con­sul­ta­tion prior to your treat­ment takes into ac­count any con­cerns, ar­eas that need spe­cial at­ten­tion and the de­gree of pres­sure you pre­fer for each part of your body.

With the in­tro­duc­tion of award-win­ning spa brands Elemis and Pevo­nia and newly re­fined sig­na­ture rit­u­als, The

Spa is even more al­lur­ing and is a firm favourite with spa afi­ciona­dos and those seek­ing the warm hos­pi­tal­ity of the iconic The Le­gian brand.

At the heart of The Spa are the cer­ti­fied ther­a­pists; born into the an­cient restora­tive arts of Ba­li­nese cul­ture they have a deeply in­tu­itive feel for mas­sage honed by years of ex­pe­ri­ence and train­ing, com­ple­mented by an un­der­stand­ing of hu­man anatomy that sup­ports their skill in pam­per­ing mind, body and soul.

The spa suites are taste­fully dec­o­rated and have dark wooden blinds that can be ad­justed to al­low in nat­u­ral light with­out sacri­fic­ing pri­vacy. The op­tion of lis­ten­ing to mu­sic or the sound of the waves break­ing on the beach out­side is en­tirely yours.

For sheer pam­per­ing, per­haps the stun­ning The Le­gian In­dul­gence is top of the list.

This rit­ual fit for roy­alty is a full head-to­toe well­ness pack­age and in­cor­po­rates the very best treat­ments so you are primped and pol­ished, ready for any­thing. Hang your clothes in the dress­ing room and change into your robe, leav­ing the out­side world be­hind you for a while.

Hav­ing de­cided on your pre­ferred fra­grance for the mas­sage oil and talked to your ther­a­pists to iden­tify any prob­lem ar­eas that need that ex­tra touch, your jour­ney into re­lax­ation and en­joy­ment starts with a stim­u­lat­ing aro­mather­apy foot scrub. Feet cleaned and mind slow­ing down, set­tle onto the deeply padded, com­fort­able mas­sage bed and set­tle in for the next step – the sump­tu­ous, lux­u­ri­ous four-hands syn­chro­nized mas­sage.

A unique fu­sion of Shi­atsu, Thai, Swedish, Ba­li­nese and Hawai­ian Lomi-lomi mas­sage, the smooth strokes si­mul­ta­ne­ously ex­e­cuted by two ther­a­pists work­ing in com­plete syn­chro­niza­tion lull you into to­tal calm, adrift in a sea of bliss. Skilled at read­ing the hu­man body, they seam­lessly ad­just and tai­lor the mas­sage to bring you the most ben­e­fit, mak­ing each mas­sage a per­sonal trip into nir­vana.

At the end of the mas­sage ses­sion, you re­main re­laxed in your dreamy co­coon, kept warm by thick, soft tow­els, as the ther­a­pists switch to foot re­flex­ol­ogy – fur­ther re­fin­ing the restora­tive ef­fects of your mas­sage – and a fa­cial treat­ment us­ing ei­ther Elemis or Pevo­nia prod­ucts.

Fully re­laxed and sated, with your body and mind com­pletely at ease, it's time for a silk body pol­ish us­ing a spe­cially cu­rated pow­der cre­ated by The Le­gian's pro­fes­sional spa ther­a­pists to be deeply mois­tur­is­ing. The com­bi­na­tion of red rice, milk, al­mond and oats gen­tly re­moves dead skin, stim­u­lates blood cir­cu­la­tion and brings a gor­geous sheen to your skin.

With the ther­a­pists' hard work com­pleted, they gen­tly help you off the mas­sage bed and di­rect you to the lux­u­ri­ous bath­room to the rain shower so you can wash off the rem­nants of the body pol­ish be­fore sink­ing into the warm flower bath, with added ther­a­peu­tic aro­mather­apy oil, to soak and al­low your mind to start com­ing back to the real world.

This royal ses­sion comes to a fi­nal end as you sit in the spa lounge and sip on warm tea and in­dulge in a healthy snack, prob­a­bly al­ready sched­ul­ing your next heav­enly visit to The Spa.
