Blessed with an architecturally stunning interior design and an established core of expertly trained Balinese therapists, the SPA at Sentosa has transformed from an exclusive, champagne-bar style spa into what many guests are already describing as Bali’s most multi-faceted spa, beauty, and wellness destination.
The news: To stay ahead of Asia’s competitive spa industry, and to ensure expectations are not only met, yet exceeded, the international SPA at Sentosa team has worked diligently to research the industry’s most cutting-edge aesthetic trends and the world’s most highly regarded wellness experiences.
The result? A dynamic holistic programme that exudes exclusivity consistent with Sentosa Seminyak’s brand; yet caters to all walks of life and thankfully, to most pocketbooks.
“Our goal from the outset of this re-branding period was to create a truly holistic destination, offering every aspect of wellness and beauty as well as a few surprises to keep our clients on their toes,” explains Spa Director Mariana Palmeiro. “We consulted with top international experts in their fields, from researching the world’s best juicing programmes, to opening our doors to the award-winning Cocoon Medical Spa, and offering a broader range of retail products to support our clients at home.”
A luxury British skincare line favoured by as many as 6.5-million spa goers per year, the exclusive Elemis spa product line is now utilized in SPA at Sentosa’s anti-ageing facials, with an extensive selection from the line available for sale as well. In addition, Bali’s very own word-of-mouth success Sensatia, a pure botanical skincare line that is artisan-crafted on the east coast of the island, is now incorporated into SPA at Sentosa’s massage treatments. A sumptuous selection of Sensatia’s delectable products are available for purchase, saving Sensatia fans from having to drive 2 ½ hours to its seaside factory in Karangasem.
Elevating the art of living well to new heights, from the inside out: In addition to offering top quality facial and body treatments, SPA at Sentosa strives to go above and beyond skin-deep beauty. “Although we have been known as a luxurious and pampering spa destination since opening seven years ago, SPA at Sentosa has also featured state-of-the-art colon hydrotherapy and one of the most qualified nurse therapists on the island since inception,” says Mariana. “We all know how much easier it is to feel beautiful, when we feel good, and one of the most important aspects of feeling good, consistently, is to detoxify as needed, and to eat what’s right for our bodies and lifestyles.”
Bringing decades of experience as a nutritional counsellor and deeply transformative healer, SPA at Sentosa welcomes New York-trained Meli as an invaluable member of the spa team. Working together with the Sentosa Seminyak and its unparalleled portfolio of luxurious one- to five-bedroom pool villas, Meli has thoughtfully conceptualized a refreshing collection of in-house ‘Wellness Escapes’.
Mariana describes the multi-day escapes as “easily accessible to a wide range of clients, including the busy mom or executive who may not have the time to get away on her own. As each experience is personally tailored, the whole family may enjoy a memorable holiday together. The only difference is that while dad and the kids are enjoying dishes from the newly launched menu of Sentosa Seminyak’s signature restaurant, Salt tapas by Luke Mangan, mom has a delicious and healthy meal prepared especially for her utilizing fresh, seasonal and locally-grown ingredients.”
