What you need to know before going to a day spa in Seminyak
Before you indulge in some pampering, here are a few additional tips for enjoying all your spa treatments in Seminyak:
- Book your spa treatment in advance so you won’t be disappointed. You might be able to get a walk-in appointment and get treatment right away, but during high season, it is best to call ahead, book online or book via WhatsApp.
- Always arrive 15 minutes before your appointment so you can get the paperwork out of the way. And enjoy a welcome drink before your treatment.
- A spa treatment always starts with the cleaning of your feet. Your massage therapist will give you a soothing and thorough washing before you start your treatment.
- If you are doing a full body massage treatment, the massage therapist will provide disposable underwear for you.

6 Best spas in Seminyak in Bali Indonesia
There are many day spas around Seminyak, so it might be hard to choose. But I’ve chosen these 6 top spas in Seminyak because I thoroughly enjoy the treatment, the ambiance, and the overall experience and value are totally worthwhile.
So here are my top 6 favourite spas in no particular order.
1. Re Day Spa
I came across Re Day Spa randomly as I was walking along Jalan Petitenget. I was probably trying to escape from the heat. Ha! But I also quite like the muted colour scheme of the spa. The interior is decorated in the most soothing and relaxing palette.
And lucky for me, I was able to get a Balinese massage without an appointment. I especially like this massage technique because the massage therapist applies pressure with her palms and knead your sore muscles. Even though the massage therapists are petite in size, they are extremely strong! The 60-minute massage was absolutely worth 240k IDR.
Re Day Spa has other massage treatments like aromatherapy massage, deep tissue rubdown, and foot reflexology. And massage treatments are done in the semi-private area on the second floor.
I’ve been back a few times since my first visit. If there is one day spa in Seminyak, this is the one!
2. Spring Spa in Seminyak Village
When you get up to the rooftop level of Seminyak Village, you are immediately welcomed by the lovely stone and pond entrance of Spring Spa. The day spa is decorated in a light and airy aesthetics where you will feel very comfortable and relaxed.
Spring Spa offers many different treatments, including manicure, pedicure, body scrubs, hair removal, hair washing and styling, facial and of course, massage treatments.
I’ve had eyelash extensions (500k IDR) and a 60-minute Balinese massage treatment (270k IDR) at Spring Spa. I love the overall ambiance of the spa. The semi-open space is welcoming and comfortable. It is the perfect day spa for anyone who wants to enjoy a bit of pampering.
So happy I discovered Spring Spa in Seminyak because they also have another spa location in Canggu which is equally good.
3. The Shampoo Lounge
The Shampoo Lounge is more than just a hair salon. It is a full-service salon where you can get massages, hair styling, hair colouring, lashes, nails, facials, etc.
I visited the Shampoo Lounge for a few “maintenance” things, including a manicure, pedicure and a relaxing TSL signature massage (250k IDR). But I noticed that every seat in the hair salon was full. And looking at the hair services list, I can’t wait to go back and get a hair treatment.
And most of all, their prices are very reasonable. So ladies, if you are looking for one place for all your beauty maintenance, this is the place!
4. Jari Menari
Jari Menari is an award-winning massage centre known for its unique massage technique, “the dancing fingers.” Their signature technique is stemmed from traditional Thai, Indonesian, Swedish and Esalen massage techniques. It differs slightly from the traditional Balinese massage, where the method focuses on the flow and rhythm.
Having experienced the 90-minute Perfect Massage (535k IDR), I highly recommend anyone who enjoys a deep tissue massage to try this massage. The price is a bit higher, but it is worth every penny (or Rupiah). Ha! I can say without a doubt that it is really worth trying as it was one of the best massages I’ve ever had (and I’ve tried a fair share of massages in Bali).
5. Bodyworks Spa Bali
Bodyworks Spa is one of the best day spas in Seminyak. Since its opening 21 years ago, the day spa is still very popular today. They provide various massages and different spa treatments as well.
And the spa space is spectacular! Each treatment room is designed with the utmost design detail and is beautifully decorated with colourful mosaic tiles. It reminds me of a modern Moroccan interior aesthetics with a very elaborate tilework design. Visiting the treatment room is quite an experience on its own.
However, Bodyworks is currently closed and in the process of relocating. The new location will be on Jalan Lebak Sari and will open in August 2021.
6. Sundari Day Spa
Sundari Day Spa is an award-winning day spa that offers many different massages and spa treatments. They even have a healing ritual package that includes a Balinese massage, organic body scrub and an aloe vera facial. It is quite easy to spend a few hours and indulge in some pampering.
But as always, I booked a 90-minute traditional Balinese massage (370k IDR) and enjoyed an hour and a half of deep tissue massage. I especially like the modern treatment room and was able to use the shower facilities afterwards.
The reception and hospitality are excellent from the beginning to the end. They always give you a cup of hot tea and a towel at the end of your massage.
