Alam Batu Spa Wellness Karangasem

The immersion into water is a cleansing ritual in most religions, for water is the most powerful and (at the same time) the most calming element. According to the Hindu legend, a beautiful goddess gathered Tirtha (holy water) from the sea and when she drank it she became immortal. Lakshmi, the Hindu goddess of fortune, stepped out of the water and while doing so, the rivers changed course and flowed towards her.

The massage house has been built below the temple that guards the land with its gods. Here massages, body-scrubs and spas are offered. Natural ingredients like papaya, sea salt, coconut, honey, milk or nuts are incorporated into the treatments.

Mandi Susu
For centuries, princesses rejuvenated in the elixir of eternal youth, the Mandi Susu. After 20 minutes the milk bath leaves your skin smooth and soft. You will enjoy this immensely luxurious treatment while soaking in flower petals. The combination of a massage followed by a honey coconut peeling is a dream come true…

Sea bath
This bath highlights the benefits of the healing qualities of unrefined sea salt. The nutrients of the salt draw toxins out of the body. The body absorbs the healing qualities of the sea salt so well because human plasma and sea water show practically the same chemical composition. A sea salt peeling followed by a massage prepares you well for this healing bath.

Lava earth — Body peeling against cellulite
Unfortunately, there is no quick cure against cellulite. A healthier diet, drinking a lot of water, brush massage, swimming and yoga are all helpful. Luckily, Bali has a variety of mineral rich clays which dissolve those fat cells. An effective means of reducing the appearance of cellulite.

Mandi Kemiri for mature skin
If your skin feels a little rough at times, Mandi Kemiri will enthuse you. The Kemiri nuts and wax myrtle berries contain so much oil, that they provide an extraordinary peeling cure and offer a lot of moisture.

Papaya body polish
Puréed ripe papayas are spread on the body and left covered for 20 minutes. Papaya contains mild acids which are related to alpha hydroxide acids (a natural fruit acid which loosens the rough cells on the skin surface). The result is tangible.

Traditional Indonesian massage
Most people love to be touched. Touch is definitely the most personal of all sensations. The Indonesians probably understand this better than many other nations. Many western societies only allow body contact on a personal basis, while the Indonesians touch each other constantly: Walking hand in hand, arm in arm or caressing each other is completely natural for Indonesians.

The Indonesians express their sympathy through their hands, and through massage they pass it on to their relatives during their whole life. Without special knowledge of the human anatomy, many Indonesians intuitively possess a sense for inflamed, cramped or swollen body parts, which they soothe with the help of their hands and essential oils.

Honey cucumber mask
The main components of this face mask – honey, lime and cucumber – have been used for generations as healing, smoothing and moistening agents. Used in combination, they do not only soothe unpleasant dermatitis and infections; but also facilitate cell growth.

Manicure and pedicure
Manicure and pedicure start with a soothing bath and an oil and salt rub. After the accurate treatment of skin and nails a polish with a color of your choice is applied.
