Four Seasons plans a healing village in Bali

The Healing Village Spa, at Four Seasons Resort Bali at Jimbaran Bay opens 1st May 2020. Seemingly suspended over water, it fuses ancient wisdom with modern awareness in revolutionary healing treatments that combine light, sound, thermal and colour therapy.

Healing Village Spa has ten all-suite treatment rooms, including six double rooms with  private outdoor relaxation areas, outdoor bathtub and shower. An Illume Room features a heated quartz-sand bed for inversion therapy and surround sound original music, and The Longevity Garden comes with private steam room amid tropical gardens. Products from ISUN – a dynamic skincare brand committed to a ‘quantum healing effect’ – draw on wild-crafted, organic ingredients infused with the power of gemstones. 

Healing Village Spa highlights include:

·         Bali’s first ‘Surround Sound Spa Suite’: a dance between the physical and the metaphysical. The Illume Room includes a heated quartz-sand bed made of crushed crystals for inversion therapy and undulating massage, and is sealed from outside sources of light to maximise powerful colour therapy healing. Engineered for surround sound technology, it features original ‘Sounds of Jimbaran’ music composed exclusively for the Spa and recorded onsite. Seven alchemy crystal singing bowls add to the high vibrations of the uniquely conceived space. 

·         The Longevity Garden: serene purifying in a private steam room sanctuary overlooking abundant tropical gardens. Guests move through a thermotherapy sequence: DIY salt scrubs and mud wraps; infra-red mats to aid absorption of minerals and draw out toxins; stone loungers warmed by the sun; and an invigorating ice bath, all combining to offer reduced inflammation, increased circulation and endorphins, and faster muscle recovery.

·         Treatments that harness the intrinsic qualities of gemstones: long revered in local culture and held in deeper understanding thanks to quantum physics research. Gemstone Joy is an ecstatic ritual using resonant gemstone oils along with powerful crystal massage wands that evokes blissful balance, while the Celestial Light Facial combines sound and light vibration with crystal wands to reveal radiant skin.

·         A Blessings of Bali ritual: infused with reverence for its island home. Surrender to the wisdom of an ancient healing culture through oceanside energy healing, simple yoga poses, traditional massage, a Balinese gong ‘sound bath’ and a flower blessing performed by a Balinese priest.

There is also the only Rossano Ferretti Hair Spa in South-East Asia –  the Ferretti Method is a highly personalised approach that works with the natural fall of a client’s hair and facial contours. The Fitness Centre of course has personal trainers and the wellness programme also includes innovative yoga and meditation sessions daily. The year-round calendar of visiting practitioners offers therapies from Reiki and Clairsentience to Aura-Soma Colour Therapy with some of the globe’s leading experts. Four Seasons’ Regional Director of Spa is Luisa Anderson, and, globally, the company’s spas are overseen by Michael Newcombe, GM Four Seasons Los Angeles at Beverly Hills.
