AWAY Spa is where sophisticated design meets the freshest ingredients to cool off the tropical heat.
Since opening five years ago, W Bali – Seminyak has set the bar high in terms of quality and concept – the property is unlike anything else with its pumping parties and overall lively ambience. The same thing goes for its AWAY Spa, a one-of-a-kind spa to refresh and recharge after a night of dancing, or simply after a day lying around in the sun.
Oohs and ahs are called for when exploring the premises. With its contemporary design mimicking the rest of the property, AWAY Spa plays around with ultramodern shapes and lines, fluorescent coloured lighting and state-of-the-art facilities. The locker and shower rooms also deserve their own recognition for all the amenities provided. See the hot and cold plunge pools, sauna and hammams to really grasp just how cool AWAY Spa is. The spa suite is in a league of its own with a couple of wet massage beds, a couple of dry massage beds, spacious shower and a big bathtub. Should you decide to take it slow, head to the detox chamber where you can drink some healthy infusions and use the oxygen masks to clear up your circulation.
Seeing how inviting and cool W’s tiered swimming pool is, a sun-kissed session is inevitable, and AWAY Spa is ready to welcome and soothe you in case of sunburn. The 60-minute Cool As Ice treatment lives up to its name and is very efficient for beating the Bali heat any day of the week.
The treatment starts with an indulgent foot bath ritual before the cooling wrapping session commences. An icy mixture of aloe, cucumber gel and jicama is slathered all over the sunburnt skin, before being wrapped in banana leaves. While you’re being cocooned in the icy goodness, the therapist will perform a pampering scalp massage with candlenut and coconut cream that will leave your hair smooth and shiny. For a cool ending, an aloe lotion will be applied to keep you feeling fresh all day long, but not before you take the fresh fizzy mint bath.
The unrivalled quality of AWAY Spa has got to be the fact that it’s open 24 hours a day, seven days a week, so, it’s never too late to get spoiled. After a day of surfing in the sun till 5PM? Sure! Straight after partying till 3AM? Why not?
