3. The Canopy Spa
An immersive “Sky Spa” located on the top floor of Lloyd’s Inn Bali, The Canopy Spa takes spa-going back to nature. For starters, it’s a peaceful hideaway shielded by a canopy of greenery (hence the name) and is wholly inspired by the sights, sounds, and scents of a forest. Then there’s the spa menu. Guests can customise their own experience by choosing treatments from three different categories: the roots, the trunk, and the leaves. You can also choose your oils, bath salts, scrub and body wrap (all using natural ingredients, obvs) before submitting to total botanical bliss. Our fave is The Canopy Essence – a signature therapy that uses various massage techniques and long palm strokes to improve circulation and relieve chronic muscle tension. And for loved up Honeys, you’ll want to try the multi-hour “Canopy Romance” package that includes a body scrub, body mask, massage, and sky bath. Dreamy!
