It had been a very trying time for me with back-to-back business trips and never-ending deadlines. I was worn down and in need of some relaxation and serious pampering. Plus, it had been a while since I had a good spa treatment and I was starting to feel withdrawal pains.
Being a spa addict, I’m always looking for a new sensation and a new experience. And to be honest, although there are plenty of spas around, there are precious few that I really like. So when I was in Bali for business, I was eager to try Bamboo Spa located at the new Kupu Kupu Jimbaran Suites. Not only is the spa by L’OCCTIANE, which means it promises to be delicious, but I was also curious to see how it measured up against the famous Mango Tree Spa by L’OCCITANE at Kupu Kupu Barong Villas and Tree Spa in Ubud.
From the moment I stepped into Bamboo Spa, I was struck by the atmosphere of elegant tranquillity. This truly is a sanctuary for the senses. The smell of aromatherapy throughout the spa provides a soothing sensation for the mind. From water trickling down along the entranceway to the spa to the bamboo décor throughout, there is a calming ambience of healing and relaxation. It feels like you are in a different world, one where time stands still.
When I browsed through the spa menu, I was impressed by the extensive range of offerings suited for both men and women. And all of the treatments use thoughtfully selected L’OCCITANE products for all of our body care and beauty needs.
I decided to experience the unique Bamboo Therapy. My therapist escorted me to one of the spacious treatment rooms. There was not only a double treatment bed but also a huge sofa shaped like a traditional bale bengong for relaxing, and a bathtub big enough for two.
Using a citrus bamboo polish the therapist first exfoliated my body. After a quick shower to wash away all the dead skin cells, I slipped into a warm bath. And then I had the most relaxing and exotic massage ever with the use of Balinese bamboo sticks. The massage incorporates bamboo stalks of varying lengths and diameters to provide deep-tissue work. Bamboo Spa has mastered a special sequence that promotes circulation, sensory nerve perception and lymphatic drainage, resulting in a deep sense of relaxation and well-being.
Bamboo Spa by L’OCCITANE caters to all of your rejuvenation needs. This is the only spa where you can experience the uniqueness of combined treatment methods from Provence, Bali and Ayurveda, the traditional Indian “Science of Life.” The spa carries hundreds of essential oils and precious natural ingredients such as the Immortelle flower, Almond, Red Rice and Shea Butter, all to provide a transcendental experience in a tranquil sanctuary setting, rejuvenating our body, mind and soul.
Bamboo Spa by L’OCCITANE is immaculately and fully equipped for your ultimate relaxation with five single treatment rooms, nine double treatment rooms for couples, a private steam room, a relaxation lounge, a reflexology area and the L’OCCITANE retail boutique.
This is the place to rejuvenate the body, refresh the mind, revive the spirit and restore the senses.
