ACQUA PERLA SPA SENSATION – It was looked like a modern medical spa; the therapist almost did her job like the others, no sensational view or ambience offered like the traditional spa, but what makes Acqua Perla give me ‘it’ sensation?
Derived from word Acqua (water) and Perla (Pearl) the concept is obvious underwater glam like you all can see on their website www.aquaperlaspa.com. Multicolors lamps, relaxing sound of water while the girl was explaining to me about the treatment I will get that day, she asks me if did I brought the swim-shorts she asked earlier, I said I did, and then she asked me to change it, then go to Sensorial Hydro Trail.
Their 30 minutes wellness signature of Sensorial Hydro Trail is the sensation that I am talking about, they said it is a magical journey of sensual delight and detox self-service, contain 7 stations:
1st = Warm caress of water on your lower body, particularly on your lower back and legs
2nd = Acupressure riverbed
3rd = Ice body scrubbing (yes, you scrub your own body with crushed ICE)
4th = Bath in a hot cold splash by the waterfall (watch out your face, it’s for your back)
5th = Rainforest
6th = Sauna & Sandalwood scrubs exfoliation therapy in Middle East style Hammam
7th = Refreshing bucket drenched shower
After that, I got to try their Balinese Microcosm Massage, pretty relaxing so I asked my friend to stop taking pictures ;p, you know Balinese massage, but I like the session ended, my therapist play a sound of Tibetan Singing Bowl from unidentified equipment and spray my face with refreshing mist, me liked it so much.
After treatment time is located in separated room, and what surprised me, there is a Chamber of Chakra (well I named in myself because that’s excited). Believe it or not, I am learning myself about Chakra and it’s becoming my ritual to activate my Chakra every night before I sleep by simple meditation and sounds of 4 hours ancient instrumental is a simply happiness. So I try the Chamber of Chakra just to hear the sound, nice J
Cold ginger lemongrass tea, date, and tropical fruit ended my session then my friends come to pick me and to move on to the other part of heavenly Bali.
