THE SOURCE OF LIFE

‘Om Swas­ti­astu...’

Usu­ally rain is pour­ing down hard in Bali at this time of the year. But due to global warm­ing, the weather has been pretty un­pre­dictable. So whether Novem­ber sees rainy days that you have to carry an um­brella wher­ever you go or beau­ti­ful sunny days that make you want to plunge in a pool, we want to in­vite you to em­brace the wa­ter.

Wa­ter heals – and the Mu­lia Spa un­der­stands this very well. Aside from its mas­sage treat­ments, this spa has com­plete fa­cil­i­ties from a Hy­drother­apy pool to their Emo­tional Steam Room. And only at the Mu­lia Spa will you find Asia Pa­cific’s first ever Ice Room. Flip through ‘In­vite & In­dulge’ to dis­cover more about this spa. And if you’re look­ing for a place to swim in Bali, our ‘Foto Fo­lio’ boasts seven swim­ming pools, each with its own dis­tinc­tive style. From the long and heated pool in Padma Ubud to the eco-friendly pool in Bambu In­dah, and the in­fin­ity pool that over­looks the ocean in Anan­tara Uluwatu – you pick!

At the same time we would also like to in­vite you to ap­pre­ci­ate wa­ter as the source of life, which we can learn from the springs in Bali. The Ba­li­nese con­struct pipe­lines so that every­one can en­joy the fresh wa­ter straight from the spring. They also build a Pura Beji and a statue of Dewa Wishnu to honor the wa­ter – you can find out more about this in ‘Craft & Cul­ture.’

Last but not least, we can’t hide from the fact that fresh wa­ter is scarce in many parts of Bali. This is a bit­ter truth that we all have to get a grip on. What is caus­ing this and what can we do to help? Read our talk with the Bali Wa­ter Pro­tec­tion pro­gram in ‘Pro­file & Por­trait’ for in­spi­ra­tion. If you still need more rea­sons as to why we need to pre­serve wa­ter, let’s take the lit­eral mean­ing of a verse from a love song by ‘90s boy­band Boyz II Men, “Let’s don’t wait ‘til the wa­ter runs dry. We’ll make the big­gest mis­take of our lives…”
