Conveniently tucked within Karma Kandara Resort’s lavish compound, Karma Spa is a sanctuary providing blissful wellness experience through holistic treatment with uninterrupted view of undulating blue Ocean beyond white sand beach.
It took just a short walk from the front lobby area to reach Karma Spa, with buggy-ride option for those who wish for a faster transport. Upon entering the wellness center’s white-stone gate, I was immediately greeted by majestic vantage view of Blue Ocean Beyond the pristine shoreline below the hotel’s vicinity. Before stepping into the treatment session, a pleasant welcome drink and fruit awaits as a complementary companion while I get soaked and enjoy the mesmerizing tropical ambience.
After a brief moment of tranquility, a therapist then greets and invites me to step into one of three main treatment rooms, and thus begin my blissful journey of relaxation. The room itself is perfectly designed for convenience. My treatment chamber, correctly dubbed as the ‘Healing’, is a fully Air-Conned twin-beds space with breathtaking aforementioned view of undulating Ocean. I was treated with Karma Rhythm Signature massage; a 1-and-a-half hour of body treatment which uniquely combines Balinese massage and acupressure technique. Started from the lower-rear side, the accomplished therapist then gently apply the technique with utmost precision and deep understanding about human body’s pressure point, relieving blood circulation and muscle tension simultaneously. This session covers major body parts including legs, arms, shoulder, back, neck and head, but you may also ‘custom’ by filling the pre-treatment form to highlight which area you want the therapist to focus on.
One and a half hour passes faster than expected, and I find myself still enjoying the treatment’s effect even after I got back to the Spa’s main hall for another round of complimentary drink (sugar-free hot ginger lime this time), and traditional cake.
To wrap up the indulgence occasion, Karma Spa also provide a post-treatment wellness lunch option at the resort’s gorgeous open-air-dining space, Di Mare; which easily accessible from a stone bridge just beside the Spa area. The healthy three-course menu (plus complementary Amuse Bouche or ‘mouth amusers’) consists of local-inspired goodness made from fresh local-grown ingredients, served with international presentation. Each menus, from the opening Plaga Tomatoes, Sumatran Fish Curry to The Dragon Lady dessert, complement each other perfectly and creates a nourishing dine experience.
Combining comprehensive treatment and tropical serenity, Karma Spa is a sanctuary to rejuvenate and rediscover our senses with satisfying wellness session. It is an activity that should be on everyone’s bucket list in-between their getaway occasion in Bali.
