Kriya Spa is a well­ness sanc­tu­ary of­fer­ing dis­cern­ing trav­ellers an au­then­tic Ba­li­nese heal­ing ex­pe­ri­ence. The word Kriya means ‘rit­ual’ in San­skrit. This unique spa cel­e­brates au­then­tic Ba­li­nese heal­ing forms with treat­ments based on ‘well­ness rit­u­als’ to pro­mote pos­i­tive health and anti-age­ing, through the use of nat­u­ral herbs, roots and essences.Cap­tur­ing the es­sen­tial na­ture of a spa, Kriya spe­cialises in pam­per­ing the mind and body with a menu of ex­cep­tional treat­ments that com­bine the best of an­cient and mod­ern tech­niques. A team of ex­pe­ri­enced spa ther­a­pists and aes­theti­cians cre­ate pro­grammes tai­lored specif­i­cally to one’s lifestyle – en­sur­ing you are taken on a per­sonal jour­ney of seren­ity, restora­tion and re­flec­tion. In desperate need of re­lax­ation, we chose the Aanand Kriya treat­ment, a two-and-ahalf-hour spa rit­ual of pure re­lax­ation to achieve a har­mo­nious bal­ance be­tween the body, mind and soul with tra­di­tional well­ness con­cepts from the is­land of the gods. Shortly af­ter mak­ing the choice, our as­signed ther­a­pists es­corted us to the spa villa.

In­spired by the mag­nif­i­cent ar­chi­tec­ture of an an­cient Ba­li­nese wa­ter palace, the spa villa is de­signed with ex­cep­tional at­ten­tion to de­tail and of­fers twin in­door treat­ment fa­cil­i­ties, pri­vate out­door wet treat­ment area, a tra­di­tional re­lax­ation

bale (Ba­li­nese-style pav­il­ion), cus­tomde­signed soak­ing tub and plunge pool, all set in a tran­quil court­yard with a fo­cus on life-giv­ing wa­ter. The villa is de­signed so that guests need not leave the in­ner sanc­tu­ary of their pri­vate lifestyle suite, each of which is set up to de­liver all the ser­vices of­fered at the spa. The con­tem­po­rary spa villa -- with a hint of Ba­li­nese tra­di­tional style -cre­ates a har­mo­nious union be­tween the spa­tial de­sign, flow and over­all am­bi­ence. Un­der­stated el­e­gance each has fine tex­tures, ma­te­ri­als and arte­facts rep­re­sent­ing herbs and nat­u­ral el­e­ments, to­gether with the in­fi­nite at­ten­tion given to mood-en­hanc­ing light­ing, nat­u­ral colours, scents, re­lax­ing sounds and tem­per­a­ture. All in all, it pro­vides an ex­otic sanc­tu­ary for a truly in­dul­gent ‘to­tal-sen­sory’ ex­pe­ri­ence. Our Aanand Kriya spa rit­ual started with a Royal Java Lu­lur, which in­cludes turmeric and san­dal­wood, ex­fo­li­a­tion and the om­nipresent scent of del­i­cate, sea­sonal blos­soms. This was fol­lowed by crown ‘Cakra’ scalp ther­apy, my scalp has never felt bet­ter hav­ing a well-trained ther­a­pist mas­sag­ing it. My favourite part of the treat­ment was the Java Honey Cu­cum­ber fa­cials, I just love how Kriya spa uses nat­u­ral in­gre­di­ents for the fa­cials, which was per­fect for my sen­si­tive skin. The treat­ment ended with a truly re­lax­ing Milk and Bali herb soak. It is one of the most re­lax­ing baths we have ever had. Our whole body was in­cred­i­bly re­laxed and our mind was some­where in bliss land. The treat­ment not only pam­pered my body but also my mind. En­joy­ing a treat­ment at Kriya Spa is the ul­ti­mate es­cape from life’s hec­tic and mun­dane re­al­i­ties of pre­par­ing a wed­ding. We love ev­ery­thing about Kriya Spa, it gives us time re­lax and pam­per our mind, body and soul. We felt so re­laxed and re­freshed af­ter the spa treat­ment, it is a sanc­tu­ary for true in­dul­gence.
