Wellness travel was popular pre-COVID-19, and in these unprecedented times, it’s only gained momentum, with travelers seeking some much-needed wellbeing. That’s where the newly opened Healing Village Spa at Four Seasons Resort Bali at Jimbaran Bay steps in.
Emerging from an 18-month-long renovation with a contemporary Balinese design, The Healing Village Spa offers treatments that combine light and sound, thermal and color therapy, plants and gemstones, all complemented by the traditional healing for which Bali is so renowned.
The 2-story building–seemingly suspended over water and 70 percent bigger than before at approx. 21,528 sq. ft.–has 10 all-suite spa rooms including the Illume Room for a fully immersive experience. It features heated quartz-sand bed for inversion therapy and undulating massage, colored light therapy, gemstones and crystal singing bowls, and surround sound original music. The spa’s soundtrack was created by former rocker-turned-wellness music producer Gus Till who stayed up all night to record the sounds of the waves and wildlife at the resort.
Another Bali first, the Longevity Garden is a private DIY treatment space in a lush “secret” garden. Couples can take their time to enjoy self-directed healing and nourish each other with local organic products including Indonesian volcanic mud wraps and coconut soap. To maximize mineral absorption, there’s a private steam room and double sun loungers equipped with infra-red gemstone therapy mats. A cleanse under the powerful 6.6-ft. waterfall shower is followed by ice bath immersion—recommended for three minutes at sub-10 degrees Celsius to release endorphins, tighten pores, speed up muscular recovery, and invigorate from head to toe.
Products from ISUN—a skincare brand committed to a “quantum healing effect”—draw on wild-crafted, organic ingredients infused with the power of gemstones. The spa also features the only Rossano Ferretti Hair Spa in Southeast Asia. The Italian celebrity stylist will cater for both local residents as well as visitors to Bali, offering unique access to the Ferretti Method: a highly personalized approach that works with the natural fall of a client’s hair and facial contours.
The Healing Village Spa’s upper level, home to the fitness center—where clients have access to the resort’s personal trainers as well as state-of-the-art equipment—offers beautiful ocean views. Fully certified yoga masters offer sessions at the studio or the ocean’s edge, including AntiGravity, Yin and Restorative Hot Stone Yoga, as well as Balinese Sekala Yoga, which ends with a blessing and energy cleansing by the resort’s Balinese-Hindu priest.
The rejuvenation of The Healing Village Spa complements the renowned wellness program at Sacred River Spa, at Four Seasons Resort Bali at Sayan in the foothills of Ubud. Reaffirming their reputation as the island’s leading wellness destination, the two resorts offer combination stays for guests to take a wellness journey from the ocean to the rice fields.
To mark the opening of The Healing Village Spa, Four Seasons Resort at Jimbaran Bay has launched new Waves of Wellness packages including accommodation in a private pool villa, daily breakfast, and a daily program of spa treatments and experiences. Guests can choose from the 3-Day Reset or 5-Day Refocus valid until March 31, 2022, with the reassurance of Four Seasons flexible booking policy globally.
