HARPER'S BAZAAR AUSTRALIA - JULY 2004
Spa Trek - Bali Spa
 
Losing baggage isn’t normally a desirable holiday experience-– except, of course, when said baggage is several kilograms of angst, stress and toxic living.  That’s Harper's Bazaar Australiajust what the newly revamped Prana Spa and Villas in Bali offers – the chance to unload some of the side-effects of a toxic lifestyle in deeply luxurious surroundings.  Once you’ve passed through the gates you’re in a colour-saturated paradise.  Just inside the entrance is the Prana Spa, inspired by classical Mogul architecture.  Beyond the spa is a series of private villas, each with its own separate bougainvillea-draped entrance. 

Inside the spa, the Mogul influence is rampant; burnt orange walls, midnight blue tiles, minarets and gilding abounds.  The treatment rooms are dimly-lit, opulently decorated dens, complete with Arabian Nights-style draped silks and intoxicating fragrances.  Whether you visit Prana Spa and The Villas to unwind, to rid the body of evil toxins, or simply to wallow in romantic luxury with a loved one, the lasting impression is simply that sheer, old-school luxury is still in style on this beautiful island.  And long may it reign.
