Described as an effortless fusion of beauty, design and lifestyle, Spring is a new innovation in spa experiences. With an extensive menu that offers pampering from head to toe, the New Zealand spa group has brought their signature Bliss treatments to Bali. Does Bliss sound familiar? Yes, it’s the cult-favourite beauty brand, first made famous after Sex and the City filmed an episode inside its flagship spa in Manhattan. We highly recommend the Bliss Instant Radiance Oxygen Facial, a 60-minute ritual that includes a resurfacing peel, oxygen wrap, facial massage and face and eye mask. At just 450,000 IDR, this treatment is an absolute steal!
Co-located with the famous eatery Warung Made, although Kaiana Spa sits next to the bustling Raya Seminyak street, its upstairs location means it is sheltered away from the noise of the dusty streets.
