spa - Ayana Resort and Spa, Bali
Written by Karen Martin
Bali is famed for its spa and wellness retreats, but Ayana Resort and Spa, Bali’s clifftop location and spa villas set on a jutting rock face make it the ultimate spa destination.
Overlooking the Indian Ocean, Ayana Resort and Spa, Bali offers a luxurious setting for a pampering hideaway. The spa consists of two ‘Spa on the Rocks’ villas, treatment rooms, a beauty salon, a reflexology and relaxation lounge, steam and sauna rooms, and the world’s largest Aquatonic seawater jet pool.
The pool is directly supplied from the underlying Indian Ocean; make your way through 12 hydro-massage stations via the pool’s therapeutic jet streams, micro-bubbles, and geysers.
The two spa villas perched on natural rocks jutting out towards the ocean offer panoramic views and give the illusion of being suspended above the sea. If you can’t tear yourself away from the breathtaking scenery you can choose to stay on for a five-course butler-served ‘Dinner on the Rocks’ after your treatments.
The complex also encompasses an 18-hole golf-putting course, three floodlit tennis courts, Jacuzzi grotto, cold plunge pool, gym, spa boutique, spa café, and the Honzen Japanese restaurant.
A rigorous underwater massage, hydro massage uses powerful jets to stimulate your circulation and get blood and lymph moving around your body and to the surface of the skin. The heat of the water opens and cleanses your pores, so you’ll find your skin looks and feels cleansed, refreshed, and invigorated. A hydro massage soothes, relaxes, and relieves pain in your joints and muscles – you can feel it working even while you are experiencing it.
