Bali is well-known for its stunning beaches, lush tropical forests, and vibrant culture, making it a top destination for travellers from all over the world. But Bali is not just about sun, sand, and sea. It’s also a place where you can pamper yourself with a spa treatment. In this blog post, we’ll review Zahra Spa in Nusa Dua, Bali, which has been rated the number one spa in Nusa Dua on Tripadvisor.
Booking Your Appointment
Booking an appointment at Zahra Spa is easy and hassle-free. You can book your appointment on their website, and credit card details are not required. We were pleasantly surprised to receive a confirmation email within 10 minutes of booking our appointment for 8.30 pm, just three and a half hours later. If you do not arrive within 15 minutes of your appointment, it will be automatically cancelled.
Getting to Zahra Spa
If you are staying in the Nusa Dua area, you can arrange for a complimentary pick-up from your hotel to the spa. When making your booking, simply state the time you’d like the car to pick you up, and the friendly driver will arrive promptly at your hotel’s drop-off area. The car is easy to identify as it has the name Zahra Spa on the side. Our journey from Grand Hyatt Bali to the spa takes just five minutes.
Ambience and Decor
Upon arriving at Zahra Spa, the over-the-top decor initially took us aback. The spa’s surroundings are striking and attention-grabbing, with a lot of yellow, gold, red, flowers, landscaping features and sculptures.
It’s not what we expected from a spa, which we typically associate with a minimalist and serene environment.
The friendly staff greeted us with smiles and the spa receptionist warmly welcomed us. While we waited at the reception area, she offered us a comforting lemongrass ginger tea drink.
Zahra Spa’s Treatments
Zahra Spa offers a broad range of treatments, including traditional Balinese massage, aromatherapy massage, warm stone massage, 4-hand massage, ear candling, facials, body scrubs, manicures/pedicures, and hair braiding. They also offer packages that combine several services into one, allowing you to experience multiple treatments and make the most of your visit.
We decided to try the two-hour Balinese massage, which cost Rp575,000 per person.
Our Treatment at Zahra Spa
They escorted us to our private treatment room, which resembled a traditional wooden hut.
Two massage beds were in the room, each with an ornate octagonal box to store our clothes and belongings. The massage therapists were highly skilled, and they made us feel at ease throughout the treatment. They regularly checked in with us to ensure that the pressure and intensity of the massage were to our liking. The massage was gentle yet firm, and we felt our muscles relax as the therapists worked their magic. We really enjoyed the neck and scalp massages as they helped to alleviate tension and stiffness.
During the treatment, we listened to the spa’s relaxing music and the soothing sounds of running water and nature, adding to the tranquil atmosphere. The massage beds were comfortable, and the room was at a perfect temperature, making it easy to relax and unwind. After the 120-minute massage, we felt incredibly relaxed and rejuvenated.
After the massage, we went back to the reception area. The receptionist offered us lemongrass ginger tea again, which was warm and comforting. We paid using credit card and they arranged for a driver to take us back to our hotel.
Our experience at Zahra Spa was truly exceptional. And we would highly recommend it to anyone looking for a massage in Bali. The spa’s location in Nusa Dua is ideal for anyone staying in the area. It’s just so convenient with their complimentary pick-up and drop-off service. So if you’re planning a trip to Bali, be sure to add Zahra Spa to your list of must-visit places. You won’t regret it!
