Thinking of heading to Bali? Indonesia is a blissful paradise, where you can escape from the hustle and bustle of a city. Soak up the beauty of the island. Enjoy beach days, shopping, eating and exploring. So let's turn that vacay mode on high!
After days of wandering around the tropical island, you might need a little ‘pick-me-up’ treatment. Hand on heart, who doesn't love the endless spa options Bali has to offer? A trip to an Island of Gods would be incomplete without a spa treatment in one of the local wellness retreats. It's Bali, the place of simple pleasures.😍
Exotic wellness paradise
You can barely walk down the street in Bali without tripping over a few spas. So ladies, let me share the following tips with you. Where to find affordable and satisfying wellness options that will blow your mind, not your budget!
Forget western-style retreats, this is something you will only find in Bali. Everything from traditional massages, luxury baths, glam mani-pedis to ayurvedic healing treatments. Are you ready for the ultimate relaxation?
