Bringing the joys of dining into the massage room, the new So SPA at Sofitel Bali Nusa Dua Beach Resort has organised its treatments in the same way the resort creates its food & beverage menus.
The newly opened So SPA at Sofitel Bali Nusa Dua Beach Resort may indeed be a sanctuary for beauty and wellness, a place where ancient traditions from around the world meet the refinement of French elegance, but it is also a spa with a difference.
The So SPA menu is incredibly extensive, because it takes inspiration from the ceaseless options available on a delectable culinary menu. It starts with light starters that include introductory treatments, like the Pure Exfoliation 30-minute body scrub and the Back to Back intensive back massage, then it moves onto more substantial entrée treatments including the Shiatsu and Balinese Healing Massage. The latter takes inspiration from Indonesia’s historical Majapahit Empire to help regain body balance in combination with acupressure reflexology and careful pressure point manipulation.
As you might imagine, the desserts are then modelled as delightful treats to complete the spa meal – the cherry on top of the cake. Luminous Eye contouring, waxing and bust care help to complete your journey to a renewed you, and with these desserts, you can indulge guilt-free.
The menu even includes Room Service options for Sofitel’s in-house guests, as well as a Spa Takeaway that lets you construct your own spa menu according to your own desires. The carefully created packages are built entirely around the spa-goers needs, from preferred products to the total amount of time wanted in the spa.
Into the Temple
So SPA is a true temple of well-being, with interiors that are so stunning and towering, you almost fall backwards from both amazement and an overly arched back gazing up into the soaring ceilings. It’s perhaps one of the most aesthetically pleasing spas I’ve ever seen, both spacious and intimate with raw stone and unpolished marble, warmed by rich fabrics, deep brown woods and flickering urns.
Although the spa is totally enclosed by these gorgeous interiors, the fact that the shores of Nusa Dua Beach are just seconds away adds a certain calmness to the room and a peacefulness within the soul. Add to that the sense of ancient traditions that are used in the treatments, the delicate, drifting scents of spicy fragrance and enchanting music playing throughout, and the spa has already worked some magic before you’ve even made it to the massage bed.
So SPA offers a range of face and body rituals in five treatment rooms, with signatures including the So Exhilarating Massage, a euphoric and soothing body massage, and the So Rejuvenating Facial, a refreshing and tasteful facial using honey and cucumber combined with French techniques. And just like a dining experience, feel free to indulge in these signatures. Overeat if you will, and pamper yourself from head to toe with a starter, main and even extra dessert.
