In an exclusive voyage of rejuvenation and cultural immersion, What's New Bali recently had the privilege of delving into the transformative depths of The Westin Resort Nusa Dua Bali's Eat.Pray.Spa wellness package. Here's our story.
Savor, Reflect, Renew: The Eat.Pray.Spa Symphony at The Westin Resort Nusa Dua Bali
As the first rays of the Balinese sun kiss the pristine shores of Nusa Dua, we find ourselves gathered at the Spa Lobby Desk, anticipation buzzing in the air. Clad in the provided Sarong and Sash, our journey commences with the Melukat Ceremony at the Beach Temple Garden.
The Cleansing Start: Melukat Ceremony
Immersed in Tradition: 8 AM
Led by ‘Pemangku’ (Balinese Hindu Priest), the ceremony unfolds with meticulous precision. Against the backdrop of Nusa Dua's breathtaking beach, the air is filled with the scent of flowers, incense, and the rhythmic chanting of the priest. Though women in their period respectfully observe, the atmosphere is one of tranquility and spiritual connection.
As we are splashed with sacred water and presented with a Tridatu bracelet, the experience goes beyond a traditional ceremony. An optional Balinese Hindu praying ritual follows, offering a firsthand glimpse into the daily rituals of the locals. The warm sun and ocean breeze set the perfect stage, cleansing our minds and preparing us for the upcoming spa experience.
A Symphony of Relaxation: 9:30 AM
Transitioning seamlessly from the Melukat Ceremony, we move to the Heavenly Spa Center for a 90-minute indulgence. The journey kicks off with a foot bath infused with lime and sea salt, a prelude to the harmonious sound bath meditation.
The skilled therapists guide us through a full-body massage, releasing tension with gentle precision. The face massage utilizing a roller made of ‘giok’ (jade stone) brings a cool, refreshing sensation, and the session concludes with a resonant singing bowl, leaving us revitalized.
Post-treatment, the Relaxation Lounge beckons, offering light bites and a warm ginger drink. It's a sanctuary of tranquility, allowing us to savor the lingering effects of the spa experience.
Culinary Delight by the Sea: Healthy Refreshing Meal
A Feast to compliment the Senses: 12 PM
Our journey concluded with a delectable healthy lunch at The Nest, a beachfront dining haven of The Westin Resort Nusa Dua Bali. Overlooking the azure waters, we indulge in a Tuna Poke Bowl—a precise blend of diced fresh tuna, edamame, avocado, beetroot, cherry tomato, rice, and shredded carrot. The accompanying spicy soy sauce adds a delightful kick to this wellness feast.
Complementing the meal is the Temulawak Elixir, a cold and fizzy concoction of pineapple and curcuma. It's a refreshing, palate-cleansing experience that perfectly balances the indulgence of the Tuna Poke Bowl.
Our journey through the Eat.Pray.Spa package at Westin Nusa Dua Resort is nothing short of transformative. From the sacred rituals of the Melukat Ceremony to the rejuvenating touch of the Heavenly Spa Experience and the healthy culinary delights by the sea, every moment is crafted to immerse guests in a holistic wellness experience. As we reflect on our morning til noon escapade, we leave with a sense of rejuvenation, gratitude, and a deeper connection to the island's rich and mindful culture. The Westin Resort Nusa Dua Bali's Eat.Pray.Spa package is a must for those seeking a harmonious blend of tradition, relaxation, and culinary delight on the shores of Nusa Dua.
