COMO Shambhala Estate

CSE Water gardens
The water gardens within the estate is a picture of serenity.

Located amidst a grass-covered field, complete with masseurs, beauty therapists, a nutritionist and ayurvedic doctors, it’s safe to say that COMO has your wellness covered. One to try is the COMO Shambhala Bath, priced at US$190 (S$269), is a 120-minute cleansing and massage treatment that uses a moisturising oil blend – almond, coconut, macadamia nut – that will leave your skin feeling silky smooth. Founder Christina Ong is also said to personally try treatments by every therapist across all her 12 hotels. How’s that for quality? US$30-US$190 (S$43-S$269) 


Thermes Marins Bali Spa, Ayana Resort and Spa

For tranquility and a breathtaking view of the sparkling Indian Ocean, you’ll want to pick treatments that are carried out in villas perched on the rocks. Our recommendation: The two-and-a-half hour Diamond Miracle treatment for 7,632,000 rupiah (S$785), which includes a foot bath, rose-petal bath and a massage with oils containing elements of silk and pearls. The resort draws throngs of tourists hoping to catch one of the island’s most magnificent sunset views, so if you pick the right time to head to the spa, you’re in for a sight to behold. For the festive season, the spa has special offers ranging from a 15 per cent discount off facials from Dec 14-20 to a couple spa package that includes hair, nails and body treatments (only from Dec 26 to Jan 2). 955,000-7,632,000 rupiah (S$98-$785)


Spa Uluwatu, InterContinental Bali Resort


Once a month, on the night of the full moon, the spa offers a special Moonlight Massage at a beachside pavilion to mark the sacred occasion in Balinese culture. That aside, try the InterContinental Signature Massage at 650,000 rupiah (S$66) that combines massage styles from all over the world, or the Four Hands One Heart massage where you’ll get not one, but two therapists at your disposal. The hotel has also recently revamped its beauty salon, where you can go for a quick trim or a manicure in plush comfort. 350,000-2,200,000 rupiah (S$36-S$226)
