Heav­enly Spa

Maxx-brides - - THE LOOK -

This is the only spa I know that is in­spired by the love story of Bali’s own Romeo and Juliet, Jayaprana and Layon­sari. The Westin take their spa se­ri­ously, which you sense upon ar­riv­ing at the spa re­cep­tion. From the aro­mather­apy that greets you upon en­try to the wel­come drink that brings a sense of calm, ev­ery de­tail con­trib­utes to the am­bi­ence of heal­ing and re­lax­ation. Heav­enly Spa by Westin takes a holis­tic ap­proach to per­sonal in­dul­gence and was de­signed to em­body the brand’s phi­los­o­phy of preserving well­ness in travel. It fo­cuses on body, mind and spirit re­ju­ve­na­tion with an ar­ray of health and beauty fa­cil­i­ties that are to­tally unique to the is­land of Bali. As a na­ture-in­spired sanc­tu­ary, Heav­enly Spa by Westin com­bines tra­di­tional spa ser­vices with time-hon­oured ther­a­pies. Tried and Tested The ul­ti­mate cou­ple’s treat­ment and a def­i­nite must-try is the Jayaprana and Layon­sari Cou­ples Rit­ual. I chose it be­cause I like the treat­ments, only later did I find out that this is much more than just a rit­ual. The Jayaprana and Layon­sari Cou­ples Rit­ual is based on Bali’s own epic love story. In fact, the flo­ral de­signs and rep­re­sen­ta­tions of na­ture through­out Heav­enly Spa rep­re­sent an epic Ba­li­nese love story quite like Romeo and Juliet. Af­ter read­ing the love story, my part­ner and I were ea­ger to ex­pe­ri­ence the rit­ual. Prior to our treat­ment, we en­joyed the steam room and salt sauna. My favourite was the hy­dropool, where I could just re­lax and let the wa­ter pres­sure mas­sage me. The restora­tive power of wa­ter has been used for cen­turies as a heal­ing medium. It’s a great way to re­lax and warm your mus­cles, aid­ing the ther­a­peu­tic ben­e­fits of your treat­ment. Af­ter a warm shower, I headed to the re­lax­ation lounge where my part­ner and I waited for our ther­a­pists. Our 180-min­utes lov­ing rit­ual be­gan with the tra­di­tional burn­ing of Ba­li­nese in­cense to bless loved ones. An in­vig­o­rat­ing scrub us­ing Ba­li­nese sea salt was fol­lowed by an el­e­men­tal cleans­ing wrap with lo­cally sourced sea­weed, and while we were wrapped up, our ther­a­pists gave us an in­dul­gent scalp mas­sage. Af­ter a quick shower, we dozed off un­der the ex­pert hands of the ther­a­pists as they gave us a full­body deep-tis­sue oil mas­sage. The rit­ual ended with a nour­ish­ing Dedari fa­cial, said to in­duce the kind of rap­ture that over­took Jayaprana when he first laid eyes on Layon­sari.
