Everything you need to know for your first Bali holiday!


After a long shopping day, surfing or touring, there is nothing better than a relaxing massage followed by a swim, shower and a nice cold beer.

There are numerous spas throughout the whole of Bali, so I will list just a few for your consideration with ratings of excellent and good.

However, before checking out the Spas listed below, I have some exciting news for the ladies who love to have the best of the best treatment for a manicure and pedicure. A New York City style nail parlor “Think Pink Nails” has recently opened at 108 Jl. Batu Belig. You will love this place ladies. Take a look at their website. http://thinkpinknails.com/about.html  E-mail: [email protected]   Phone +62 361 918 8116. Enjoy the experience.

Most hotels and villas provide a very good in house service and you will probably be satisfied with what’s on offer. However the truth is, if you want the best you have to pay for it. Having said that, I will give you a few spa names to choose from. The following establishments listed are rated with symbols $$$, $$, relating to quality and service.

  • $$$ W Retreat & Spa Seminyak, Jl. Petitenget Seminyak, ph 4738106, www.whotels.com/baliseminyak
  • $$$ Chill Reflexology: Jl Kunti 118x, Seminyak. I am sure you will enjoy this experience.
  • $$$ Jari Menari Jl Raya Basangkasa 47, Seminyak. Ph: 361 736 740.

  • $$ Sicilia Spa, Jl. Double Six, Seminyak. www.siciliaspa.com Ph. 736292.
  •  Some will come to your villa by appointment only so it’s worth asking if you are interested in a manicure, pedicure, facial or massage in the comfort of your own villa.

I am sure you will enjoy all of these spas ranging from RP80,000 ($8) up to around RP500,000 ($50) or more for a massage only but there is a big difference.

The menu of what is available at these establishments is almost endless. For more information, check all of these suggestions out on their websites.

All of the places mentioned above, should be well known to taxi drivers and is the best way for you to check them out first hand, before you make your decision.
