THE BEST SPAS IN SANUR
Glo Day Spa & Salon
If Brigitte Bardot and Carrie Bradshaw opened a spa, we’re pretty sure it would look a little something like Glo Day Spa & Salon. This Parisian-chic meets Manhattan-glam spa and beauty destination is a one-stop shop for all your major pampering needs, with its top-notch hair, nail and body treatments that are famous island-wide (there are now four locations in Bali, FYI). With the motto “For Vanity & Sanity”, this 2019 award-winning spa means business when it comes to top-to-toe treatments, carried out by certified and internationally trained staff, using only vegan and cruelty-free products (try the anti-ageing Pevonia facials or the Warm Stone Hair Revival to nourish your beached-out locks). And the kicker? Glo’s therapists are also available for call-outs, making them the perfect choice for group glam-ups and special occasions…

Located in the very heart of Sanur, Koa Shala Spa is quietly nestled down a banana palm-lined avenue, and once you step through the gate away from the hustle and bustle of life on the street, a peaceful garden sanctuary awaits.Unwind on the deck under the mango trees and listen to the babbling brook and bird song, before being whisked away for an ahhh-inducing massage. Our fave is the Mother Earth massage, best paired with a Pilates class in the open-air garden Yoga Shala.
