In the mid 1990s spa in Bali started booming and today every major hotel and resort has its own spa. In tourist centers day spas and massage shops can be found at almost every corner.
Services vary from basic massages in local salons up to extensive treatment programs at super luxury resorts. The types of spa in Bali mainly are resort/hotel spas and day spas, few holistic spas and two thalasso spas.
Some spas provide open-air treatment rooms for couples who wish to share the experience.
Typical local spa treatments are Balinese massage, lulur body polishing and blossom filled bath, boreh healing mask, traditional hair spa and Balinese facial. To an increasing degree becoming popular is hot stone massage and Ayurvedic shirodara.
All these genuine treatments are based on ancient recipes and keep with the roots in traditional techniques.
