Introducing Tropical Magnolia Massage at Four Seasons Bali

The fragrant tropical magnolia flower is the star ingredient of a new signature massage treatment being introduced at select Four Seasons spas around the world. This gorgeous flower is native to Bali and flourishes within the gardens of Four Seasons Resort Bali at Jimbaran Bay – making its Spa the perfect place to experience this truly luxurious, chemical-free treatment.

The local Balinese name for the magnolia tree is champaca and its giant blossoms are often featured in traditional Balinese ceremonies and offerings. The flowers are used to produce tropical magnolia essential oil – the most expensive of all essential oils.

The new Four Seasons Tropical Magnolia massage is an invitation to discover the flower’s emotionally uplifting aroma, as well as its ability to hydrate and nurture the skin, while aiding the digestive system and enhancing overall wellbeing. With its great anti-stressing and calming effects, the Tropical Magnolia massage will help one sleep better and provides the perfect remedy for easing jet lag after a long journey.

The Tropical Magnolia product line has been created exclusively for Four Seasons by Sodashi, the Australian skincare company with a special focus on the regenerative and anti-ageing qualities of plant essences and other natural ingredients. All of Sodashi’s ingredients are ethically sourced for their purity, potency and therapeutic qualities.

Because tropical magnolia essential oil is so expensive, it is often synthetically adulterated. However, the tropical magnolia used by Sodashi is pure, unadulterated and of the finest quality. These exclusive Four Seasons products also contain cell stimulants, rosewood and damask rose, which are well known for their anti-ageing and restorative qualities.


Exclusively featuring these Sodashi products, the 90-minute Tropical Magnolia massage begins with a foot ritual, incorporating a wash and a scrub. This is followed by a relaxing full-body massage, using deeply soothing hot towels and heated magnolia oil. The massage includes deep-stroking effleurage, rocking movements, stretching, facial pressure-point, and scalp effleurage. The session ends with a massage to the neck, shoulders, and arms, using a hot dry towel.

Guests may also take home this evocative Balinese fragrance by purchasing select Four Seasons Tropical Magnolia products, including body mist, shampoo, conditioner, and the aroma essence. Suitable for all hair and skin types, the products are not tested on animals and are free from synthetic chemicals, preservatives and mineral oils.
