Have you ever wondered what it's like to really relax? To have all the weight of the world lifted from your shoulders, and breathe, really appreciating the world around you and everything that led you up to this moment? That's what it felt like to be a guest at Spa Tembok in Bali last month...
Arrive and Unwind
Off-the-beaten-track in the north of this paradise island, hidden amongst the palm trees, lies this hidden gem. It's local, authentic, and the epitome of tranquility. The relaxation starts from the moment you arrive at the resort, when you're given fresh juice, hot tea and a refreshing, cold towel. Your feet are soaked in warm water and then massaged and exfoliated with volcanic sand from the local beach, relieving all the fatigue from your journey. Forget the stress of checking in bags and sorting out paperwork; it's time to completely unwind now. The staff will attend to your every need.
And this is just the start of your journey at Tembok. It really is somewhere special.
Life is in the Detail
The attention to detail within the resort is impeccable. Each of the 30 rooms is a perfectly balanced fusion between Balinese tradition and western luxury. Every morning you can wake up to the sound of the waves crashing on the beach nearby, and every evening let your head sink into the softest of pillows.
Not only this, but the all-inclusive experience really is inclusive and caters for vegetarians, vegans, and dietary requirements. It also includes a spa treatment each day, and all meals and treatments are preceded by a fresh, healthy shot of a juice, soup or cleansing drink. Additionally, there are daily yoga classes and workouts, and opportunities to learn more about Balinese culture during cooking lessons and more. Your mind and body will thank you for filling them with goodness during your time at Tembok.
Not Coming Home
Tembok Spa really has something for everyone, from indulging in the spa itself to taking some quiet time to yourself by the pool or under the stars. Trust me, you will never want to leave. See my full review and images of Tembok Spa here on my website.
