The professional therapists here are as expert at they come, thoroughly trained to six-star standards to provide deep tissue massages using exotic oils and herbs, with the placement of warm volcanic stones on the chakras – the body’s seven energy centres – for total relaxation and a soothing anti-stress effect. Choose to bliss out in one of the fabulous spa suites, or go al fresco with a treatment by the ocean’s edge…

2. Best facial – FaceDay
So much more than ‘just’ an epic facial, FaceDay brings in the big guns with its “functional facials” that combine face yoga, high-tech devices and lymphatic drainage techniques for the ultimate facial workout. It all begins with its state-of-the-art face scanner, which maps the areas of concern, tracks changes over time, and helps the therapists tailor your treatment to your skin’s needs. Then it’s time for the FaceDay magic. Expect sculpting massages, gentle facial stretches, suction cups for de-puffing, LED lights, and electrical and radio frequency to tone and lift your money-maker. Stop by for a quick spruce-up with an express 30-minute treatment, or treat yourself to a 45- to 60-minute facial for serious #facegoals.
FaceDay, Jl Pantai Berawa No. 38, Berawa, p. +62 811 3960 0027, e. [email protected]; Open daily 10am – 6pm.
3. Best mani-pedi – House of Orange
Surfed or shopped out and need to show some love to your fingers and toes? House of Orange treats your tootsies to clean shaping, polishing and cuticle care with their advanced manicures and pedicures. There’s even gel-polishing and bold nail art – some of the very best we’ve seen on the whole island. You can level up your mani-pedi with a nail strengthening treatment too, meaning your new look will last for longer. Top it off with a relaxing hand and foot massage, and soak up the artsy vibes of this sleek vintage space.
House of Orange, Jl Pantai Berawa No. 5, Berawa, p. +62 821 4455 7203; Open Wed – Sun 10am – 6pm.
4. Best sauna & steam – AMO Spa
One of our all-time fave spas in Canggu, AMO is everything you expect from a NYC-style day spa – and so much more. A long-loved gem amongst the expat and tourist crowds, here you and and your besties can get pampered from head to toe with an entire day of manis, massages and more. But what really put AMO on the map is its steam and sauna facilities, complete with a cold plunge and a jacuzzi. Hop from one to the next in the al fresco space (you can buy a full day pass), and we say, finish it all off with a foot or shoulder massage.
AMO Spa, Jl Pantai Batu Bolong No. 69, Canggu, p. +62 361 907 1146 / +62 811 399 9806, e. [email protected]; Open daily 9am – 10pm.
5. Best couples’ treatment – Svaha Spa Kenderan
A holistic destination where al fresco treatment rooms overlook the lush forest and Ubud’s tranquil river, Svaha Spa Kenderan is the most idyllic setting to reboot with bae. You’ll want to spend an entire day here, soaking in multiple hours of blissful treatments and working your way through the spa staples. For romance in the jungle, try the Romantic Forest Package specially designed for couples to celebrate the spirit of true love. This renewing treatment will treat you both to a foot bath to refresh walk-weary toes, before a soothing couples’ body massage to release muscle tension and entice deep relaxation. This lovey-dovey treatment ends with a romantic soak in the bath together, infused with essential oils and exotic flower petals for extra passion points.
Svaha Spa Kenderan, Jl Raya Desa Kenderan No. 88x, Ubud, p. +62 812 3703 2059, e. [email protected]; Open daily 9am – 11pm.
6. Best Chakra ceremony – Sacred River Spa at Four Seasons Resort Bali at Sayan
When it comes to wellness, the Balinese believe in having a balanced Chakra as the key to a harmonious and healthy life. At this gorgeous river-side spa (within the award-winning Four Seasons Resort), each of your seven Chakras are celebrated and cared for in 120 to 150-minute rituals. Our favourite is the Anahata, AKA the heart Chakra ceremony, which clears negativity and allows the heart to give and receive love and compassion. This rose-based ritual begins with a blissfully nurturing scrub and a flower bath. A rose oil body massage relaxes you before continuing with a rose quartz crystal chest massage. The ceremony ends with a heart-shaped Ayurvedic container filled with healing pure rose oil being placed over the heart. You’ll leave feeling peaceful and harmonious, with a sense of renewed energy…

7. Best Javanese body scrub – Bodyworks
Widely recognised as the originator of Bali’s modern day spa scene, Bodyworks is a mainstay on the Seminyak spa circuit for good reason. With a loyal following after almost two decades beautifying the neighbourhood, blissing out at Bodyworks is a holiday must-do. Stunning surroundings, superbly trained therapists and buttery smooth service from start to finish makes Bodyworks an excellent one-stop drop-in spa spot. Head here to for a next-level authentic Balinese massage, paired with a traditional Javanese mandi lulur – a body scrub using turmeric, sandalwood, cinnamon, and rice powder, finished with a warm and fragrant, flower-filled bath…

8. Best Hammam – Talise Spa at Jumeriah Bali
Inspired by the royal bath-house culture of the ancient Hindu-Javanese Majapahit Empire, Talise Spa at Jumeirah Bali merges the elements of nature into each of its treatments. Each carefully curated ritual combines Balinese traditions, Arabic therapies and European technology, and Talise Sps is hoe to the only Turkish Hammam on the island. We love the signature massages and organic facials here, but we say, treat yourself to a Hammam ritual, like the 120-minute Royal Campa cleansing and exfoliating therapy, which harnesses the healing power of the sea using Arctic salt flakes and marine clay. Or, try the deeply nourishing 60-minute Royal Dwara ritual, which incorporates light stretching and a traditional kessa and soap massage on a heated marble table within the Hammam. It’s pure divine bliss…

9. Best skin polishing treatment – Prana Spa
Prana Spa is a unique and glamorous spa that specialises in Eastern and Indian techniques fit for royalty. The Sun and Moon skin-polishing treatment is designed to detoxify your face and body with 180-minutes of scrubbing, polishing and preening. It begins with a body scrub and polish, using fresh ingredients to condition your skin. Then, you’ll relax in the spa’s steam room, which will give your complexion a healthy glow and much-needed detoxification. You’ll rejuvenate fully with a flowing body and foot massage using Prana’s own special blend of aromatherapy massage oils. A relaxing facial finishes off the treatment, leaving your skin clean, buffed and hydrated.

10. Best four-hands massage – Kayumanis Ubud Private Villa & Spa
Elevated over the banks of the Ayung River and hidden away amid towering trees and lush greenery, is Kayumanis Spa. This sanctuary in Ubud believes that a journey to bliss must be filled with multi-sensorial indulgence, so expect to be immersed in nature to clear your mind, as you listen to the flowing river and chirping birds. You can choose from different types of massages (like Balinese, hot stone, or aromatherapy) to achieve a specific target (like improving flexibility, alleviating pain, healing, or soothing). We say, try the Four Hands Massage – a divine pampering sesh performed by two professional therapists, moving in perfect harmony to relieve any knots or tension.

12. Best holistic wellness treatment – COMO Shambhala Estate
COMO Shambhala is right up there as a favourite place for healing and wellbeing in Bali. Is it the energy, the nutritious food, the beautiful grounds and yoga pavilions, or the incredible villas? You guessed it – it’s all of the above. And the spa is no different – a world class facility not to be missed. Start with the COMO Shambhala Bath – a cleansing treatment to gently exfoliate and soften the skin. After dry brushing the body, a specially prepared COMO Shambhala body scrub (infused with Shea butter, essential oils and nut oils) is applied to the body. After a rinse, enjoy the relaxing and nurturing COMO Shambhala Massage using a signature massage oil blend to calm the mind.

All of the products are vegan and cruelty-free too, and the salons themselves are bright and minimalist with Parisian-chic vibes. Need we say more?

15. Best Jamu facial – Shankha Spa at Hyatt Regency Bali
A holistic spa and five-star wellness destination, Shankha Spa at Hyatt Regency Bali is so much more than “just” a luxury spa. Because Hyatt Regency Bali is all about honouring its island home, you can expect plenty of nods to Balinese rituals, from the architecture within the stunning spa suites, to the ancient philosophies and herbo-mineral healing used in the treatments. With the spa’s signature jamu facial, you’ll get to experience authentic Indonesia in an hour. Your skin will be treated to an ancient blend of Indonesian herbs, AKA jamu, which contains nutrient-rich botanicals of turmeric, green tea, floral extracts and candlenut. You’ll leave with tightened contours, a glowing complexion, and your natural beauty as the spotlight.
