Manis Klepon is the signature treatment at DALA Spa. It is inspired by the colourful ingredients of a traditional Balinese rice flour cake known as a klepon. Before the treatment, they give me the opportunity to see how they prepare the ingredients, like rasping the coconut and the palm sugar. The treatment begins with a foot bath, then an exfoliating coconut and palm sugar scrub is applied to my body to remove dead skin cells. After that, the expert therapist applies a fragrant body mask, made from pandanus and suji leaves. Then I move to the bathtub and sink into water that is a soothing 25 degrees, as the therapist drops seven types of fragrant Balinese flowers into the water. After a delicious soak, I am treated to the deeply relaxing massage, the long strokes easing the tension from my muscles.The ritual ends with the application of a refreshing Chamomile Facial Mist. After the treatment, I am served a warm ginger tea and klepon. I am lighter and relaxed.
