Spa industries and  patrons across the world have started turning to Bali for its treatment techniques and traditional ingredients.

Lulu S Widjaja, an adviser with the Bali Spa and Wellness Association (BSWA), said that the island’s spa’s had earned wider recognition from the local and international market, with rising interest from upscale customers that considered spa treatments vital.

“Bali is one of the world’s best spa destinations, thanks to its traditional massage techniques and local ingredients. Customers worldwide have acknowledged the expertise of Balinese spa therapists.” Lulu said.

The island had not only seen an increasing demand for spa products for export but also had received a rising amount of requests for local spa therapists to carry out training worldwide, she added.

The thriving spa industry has also motivated spa establishments in Bali to innovate by combining traditional and modern techniques, as well as create more convenient and relaxing atmospheres in spas.

In addition to indoor spas, many businesses on the island now offer treatments in open spaces, such as on the seaside, by the river or amid rice fields.

It is not surprising that spas in Bali have been frequently nominated and have even won spa awards, including the ongoing Asia Spa Award, whose winners would be announced this week.
