Beauty Destination: the beautiful Spring Spa, Bali




Every time I am lucky enough to find myself in stunning Queenstown – I swear it’s like looking at a chocolate box photo every corner you turn – I make sure I take some time to visit the always-wonderful Spring Spa, which conveniently opened in Auckland in the last twelve months as well. Both destinations are most definitely of the “happy place” variety, and I recommend them to everyone I meet who is looking for some dedicated “me” time.
Spring is the stroke of genius of the always-charming and ridiculously clever Ina Bajaj, the creator of the world-renowned East Day Spa. So despite the fact that they are quite a different beauty destination to East, they provide the same high standards of treatment and superior levels of service East is famous for, but with what they call “a Spring spin”.
Anyway, when I travelled to Bali a couple of weeks ago for ten days of island bliss, at the top of my to-do list was a trip to the incredible new Spring location recently opened there. Situated in the ever-popular Petitenget area, Spring’s new Bali location opened its doors in May. Designed by acclaimed designer Derek Lockwood of Saatchi & Saatchi Design Worldwide, Spring Bali has several areas that extend their current offering further, including a DJ Booth, drinks bar and private relaxation area. While spas have always been a major traveller’s drawcard for Bali, the Spring experience is unlike any other, with Spring’s familiar offering of pedicures and manicures, along with a popular Bali crème and blow wave bar, after-sun treatments and an array of Bliss beauty products. Feet were originally the main focus at Spring, but they offer everything from massage to reflexology and pedicures as well as a whole bunch of add-on's so you can customise your treatment to your needs. They also offer stellar manicures, threading and waxing as well as packages to remedy your jetlag or help you recover from a hard day next to the pool, and facials that sound seriously good.
I spent a blissful couple of hours on site having a Signature massage and then reflexology (both 10 out of 10 and then some), then floated out for some conveniently close by shopping and lunch at Motel Mexicola. Having experienced more than my fair share of spa treatments in Bali I can confidently say that my Spring experience was quite possibly the best, with not a detail overlooked and top notch service from beginning to end. I seriously didn’t want to leave, and am already racking my brain for a way to go back… ASAP!
You can check out what Spring Bali has to offer here, and if you’re off to the island paradise then I highly recommend that you get booking now.
