First of all, the mood in this case is set by the architecture when you enter the Alila Villas Soori Spa, which is one of dark cavernous spaces that inevitably transport you from bright searing sun into a cool chamber with mood lighting. The charming interiors aligned with the hidden decorative lighting create a calming yet mythical effect a comforting prelude.


Our couple’s room featured a beautiful diamond terracotta tile patterned wall that was subtly lit to create the right ambience. But first, a quick foot bath, followed by a soothing and relaxing Jacuzzi accompanied by a glass of champagne. Check and know your own blood pressure level well before being too excited with such luxury treatment and to avoid speeding up the alcohol right to your head while enjoying the luxury crafted treatment. It is only the beginning.


The Luxury Interior


But hold on a minute, if this doesn’t set the mood, what could? In such a unique and customized spa experience in a ultra-luxury and contemporary environment, a variety of indulgent and rejuvenating spa treatments are combined with personal consultations given by the intuitive therapists.


As Spa Alila believes only in using natural products that are handmade using pure, natural ingredients, the extensive and exclusive spa treatment menu combines both Asia and Western therapy techniques include deep tissue, relaxing, nurturing and even a special pregnancy massage. A local “SayangSayang“ nurturing movements calms not just the body but the mind and spirit.


We ordered ourselves the <Therapeutic Massage> which is a complete body awakening with a combination of therapeutic massage techniques using fluent strokes of different depths and intensity. Long Balinese strokes improve lymphatic drainage and circulation. Swedish deep tissue techniques work into muscles to relieve tension and stiffness. Acupressure points are used for specific stimulation while Thai movements add elements of stretching to increase mobility.


Once the formalities of the oil massage were established, it was time to allow the therapist to create some magic with her fingers and she does this with aplomb. We can be a bit fussy when it comes to the pressure being too strong, but each therapist listened to our requests and needs intently, applying a good balance of going in hard at times and then releasing the pressure at just the right moment to create that balance that tells you the effect will be felt, but without leaving you feeling sore the next day. We felt totally cocooned and in a zone of spa bliss, but as the saying goes, all good things must come to an end……..We were uplifted in our spirits due to the expertise applied to our tired muscles that sorely needed attention. This is definitely one of the best overall experiences one can hope to sample throughout your mystical Bali journey.


While Spa Alila goal is to help to bring you back into balance naturally with treatments personalized  to your needs through heartfelt touch of their experience therapists and the naturally active products used. They create a new dimension in nurturing and divine pampering rituals. You’ll see and feel the benefits in your appearance as well as your spirit and your overall sense of wellbeing with this luxury crafted Spa Alila experience.
