In the latest stage of a major renovation and beautification programme, Grand Hyatt Bali, located in the prestigious Nusa Dua area, has launched the Kriya Spa, adding immeasurably to its already extensive relaxation and activity facilities. Nestled within the lush tropical gardens of the 40-acre award winning resort, the Kriya Spa is, in essence, a ‘Wellness Sanctuary’ - offering the discerning traveller an authentic Balinese healing experience with 24 luxurious Spa Villas for treatments and for full day Spa programmes.
Relecting its name Kriya - meaning ‘Ritual’ in Sanskrit - this uniq ue spa celebrates authentic Balinese healing forms with treatments based on ‘wellness rituals’ to promote positive health and anti-aging through the use of natural herbs, roots and essences.
Inspired by the magnificent architecture of an ancient Balinese water palace, each spa villa is designed with exceptional attention to detail and offers twin indoor treatment facilities, private outdoor wet treatment area, a traditional relaxation bale, custom-designed soaking tub and plunge pool, all set in a tranquil courtyard with water features.
The contemporary villas, with a hint of Balinese tradition, are designed to create a harmonious union between the spatial design, flow and overall ambience. Understated elegance, fine textures, materials and artefacts representing herbs and natural elements, together with the infinite attention given to mood-enhancing lighting, natural colours, scents, relaxing sounds and temperature, will all provide an exotic sanct uary for a truly indulgent ‘total-sensory’ experience.
Each villa has been designed so that guests need not leave the inner sanctuary of their private lifestyle suite which are appointed to deliver all services offered at the spa.
Capturing the essential nature of the spa, Kriya will provide pampering the mind and body relief with a menu of exceptional treatments which combine the best of ancient and modern techniques. A team of experienced spa therapists and aestheticians will create programmes tailored specifically to one’s lifestyle - ensuring you are taken on a personal journey of tranquillity, restoration and reflection.
Kriya ‘rituals’ which are specially designed for both relaxing and invigorating moments as well as detoxification, will include:
Moksha kriya - Harmony
Aanand kriya - Bliss
Yowanna kriya - Energy
Nirmala kriya - Purity
As well as an extensive a la carte menu of body scrubs, body wraps, facials, touch therapy, Aryuvedic massages and hydro-soak treatments.
Yoga and meditation sessions are available and, for multi-day-stay guests, professional practitioners will create lifestyle counselling and strategic planning that include personalised fitness programmes, stress management and nutritional consultation.
“Our Kriya Spa is dedicated to a journey of self-discovery and rejuvenation” said Detlev Truernit, General Manager of Grand Hyatt Bali, “it is a personal journey that each of our guests will take alone in their minds, but we are physically there to help them achieve the optimum benefits in every way we can - we will offer our guests the ultimate in escapism”.
