As promised, I will share our unforgettable massage in Bali.
Before proceeding, I know things happening in Manila are not nice these days but just to shift our attention and by looking at the brighter side of things, I would like to reminisce on our most recent trip and continue posting about our most recent trip which was in Bali.
Bali is really a wonderful city. If only I could stay there for good. Shops and restaurants are everywhere and the prices are not too expensive considering that Bali is a very touristy place. One of our list is to make sure that we get to experience their spa. My Mom, sister and I love to go to spa here in Manila and when we heard that Bali is known for spas, we made sure not to leave Bali without getting one.
We actually had two massages while in Bali. One was by the local Manangs by the beach. It was unplanned. When we were finished shopping and were at the seashore waiting for the sun to set when the Manangs “forced” us to have a massage for PHP200.00. How did they force us? They gave us a sample by massaging our shoulder first. It was definitely heavenly. Their hands were very strong thus the grip was perfect. We couldn’t say no anymore. It was worth it even if we had to lie down in front of those people passing by. We didn’t care anymore since we were very tired and wanted massage badly. The ambiance was of course not something I recommend to those people who are after a great ambiance. For PHP200 it was definitely worth it.
Next was at Mandira Hotel.
This was the spa that I’ve been waiting for ever since we arrived Bali. We wanted the following package for the three of us:
- Papaya Glow (120 minutes)
Glow will definitely be the results after this treatment is completed. Rippened papaya will exfoliate your skin and acts as a natural skin booster which is full of vitamins that will nourish and replenish, followed by an Asian massage you are good to glow.
- Pure Pleasure (120 minutes)
Using natural ingredients your facial will leave your skin glowing by exfoliating, resoting, and hydrating, bringing your skin back to its natural state followed by a relaxing Asian massage with your choice of blended essential oils.
- Java Bean (120 minutes)
If you are a coffee lover this one is for you, delicately ground with intoxicating aroma this scrub is sure to not only exfoliate your skin but will arouse the senses, tagged with an Asian massage.
Unfortunately when we got to the hotel from our one-day tour to Bedugul, we only had 1 hour left. So we just got the Balinese Massage for 60minutes. It was still heavenly and the experience was really unforgettable. Check out the photos grabbed from Bali Mandira’s website.
This is where my sister had her massage.
This is where my Mom and I had our massage.
We actually took a few photos of the place but it was too dark already that some were blurry. I was hoping to get nice photos to serve as holiday photo cards but too bad the lighting was not too nice.
Anyway, the important thing is that we had a great time and that we get to experience one of Bali’s pride which is the Balinese massage.
