Letter F met with Ingrid Edson Hotanijaya, the Marketing Communications Manager of The Seminyak Beach&Resort for one of a kind spa treatment found in the heart of Seminyak. It’s called Kahyangan Spa nonetheless and referring to its name, the concept of the overall design and the treatments themselves are meant to make the guests feel as if we’re entering nirvana.
Could you explain about the Kahyangan spa itself?
“The Kahyangan is a sacred place where the Gods and Goddesses live. It is a sanctuary that mortals could only dream of, an ethereal place where our physical selves are healed and restored, our senses are rejuvenated, and our minds are enlightened. To be well and to be whole in the way that it was always meant to be.”
“We ask our guests to surrender body and mind for the ultimate spa experiences with us. In the talented, intuitive hands of our therapists and in our beautifully appointed treatment rooms, our guests will discover an enhanced feeling of wellbeing and a new reason to call Bali paradise.”
How many types of room are there?
“The spa comprises 3 double deluxe treatment rooms, four single treatments rooms, hair spa, relaxation lounge, retail boutique, lockers with wet areas including sauna, cold and hot plunge pools.”
What distinguishes the Kahyangan spa from other spa treatments in The Seminyak?
“Our goal at Kahyangan Spa is to provide guests with an unforgettably exquisite spa experience. Our menu offers a collection of deliciously pleasurable ways to relieve stress, boost vitality, enchant your senses, restore balance and experience bliss. Our guests wellbeing is our focus. Revitalizing body treatments, meltingly good massages, therapeutic skin care, and sublime spa experiences are delivered with impressively genuine and nurturing heartfelt services.”
Where does the inspiration come from? Do you draw it from a mix of the classic and the modern treatment?
“From traditional Indonesian and Balinese healing therapies combined with treatments such as manicures and pedicures that are expected today on a spa menu by guests. Many of our treatments are unique to Kahyangan spa and have been developed with holistic healing in mind. We are currently expanding our wellness menu to include a number of fitness and mindfulness therapies.”
The view to the spa room is directly to the ocean, why so? Any specific reasons for that?
“Our Kahyangan Spa is delicately designed to ensure an unrivalled environment and ambience in order to provide our guests a heavenly spa experience. Therefore, we have some of our treatment rooms built facing the magnificent Indian Ocean, allowing our guests to admire the turquoise beauty while immersing in one of Kahyangan’s signature massages.”
