Everyone travelling to the island of Bali has to experience the traditional Balinese spa treatments at some point. Believe me, you won’t get enough of it! The Balinese spas are definitely one of the reasons why I love living here so much (just one of the many, many reasons). In tourist towns all around the island, the choice of spas is a bit overwhelming. There are dirt cheap ones, high-end ones and everything in between. So, which one to pick? It’s always good to get a personal recommendation from someone who’s actually been there. Or even better, spas recommended by people living on the island – those who know what a good massage should feel like and where to get it at the best affordable price. Well, I asked around in the office and these are Villa Finder’s Favourite Spas in Bali:
1. Cozy Spa Bali – Recommended by Diah, Adrian & Avron
This professional, contemporary spa is recommended by many of our staff members for a good reason: it’s got the best reflexology on the island! Cozy Spa features skilled massage therapists, organic soap and shampoo, quality reflexology chairs and massage beds. It is a favourite among locals and expats living on Bali Island. All the more reason to go check this spa out now! Cozy is located on Sunset Road in Kuta, easily accessible from Seminyak and Legian by car or motorbike. This spa specialises in reflexology massages but they also do full-body massages, scalp massages and facials. These spa therapists are highly-trained professionals and you can feel it with every touch. Cozy Spa is recommended by Diah and Avron, two of our Travel Consultants, and also by Adrian, one of our Bali Concierge members.

2. Spa Bali – Recommended by David, Jolien & Yunia
Spa Bali has got several locations in Seminyak but Jolien, our Sales Manager, especially recommends the Drupadi location in Seminyak. She says it’s the only massage that makes her fall asleep. Managing Director and Founder of the company, David, says this spa has a very relaxing atmosphere. Yunia, one of our Bali Concierges, says the treatment rooms are nice and the massages are really good. With 3 of our team members recommending this place, you know you can’t go wrong here! Spa Bali is open until 11 pm, great for those holidayers in for a late-night trip to the spa. Massages, body treatments, facials, manicures, pedicures – they have it all. This luxurious (yet affordable) Seminyak Spa also features a chic interior design that has the feel of an art gallery. Highly recommended for those staying in a villa in the heart of Seminyak!

4. Bodyworks – Maria’s favourite spa in Bali
Bodyworks is a beautiful luxury spa located in the Oberoi district of Seminyak. The location couldn’t be more central, like a peaceful oasis where you can forget about the outside world for a while. Much thought has been given to the treatment rooms – you really feel like being away somewhere far away in some exotic place. Their signature 2-hour exfoliating treatment includes a full body massage, followed by a traditional “lulur” scrub, a yoghurt body mask and a scenting flower bath, enjoyed with a cup of tea. It is pretty heavenly if you ask me! Prices are on the expensive side but still affordable (especially considering the location of Bodyworks Spa). They also do facials, waxing, hair treatments, manicures and pedicures. Maria, our Head of Finance, says you can never go wrong with them. They have the best prices and best masseuses!!!
