An enlightened feeling of lightness encircles as you doze to the sound of the thrashing surf, all the while experiencing a sensual afterglow and the transformation of mind and body. Deeply inspired by Balinese heritage and traditions and complimented by Elemis, the luxury skincare brand, Sakanti Spa’s skilfully trained therapists provide individual consultation for each guest, crafting each Spa and Beauty ritual to create an individualistic experience completely custom-made to your individual needs. A perfect retreat for the honeymooners, this spa offers over 30 rituals ranging from massage, body scrubs, facials, manicures and pedicures.
The signature treatment offers in Sakanti spa is the hot Sands Detox Massage treatment. The fine beach sand used in the bath is cured with herbs and aromatic salts. Sand baths are part of a prehistoric healing tradition that helps sooth body pain. Sand warms the body uniformly, helping to relieve musculoskeletal and arthritic pain. Like a sauna or steam room, the heat also causes you to sweat, expel toxins thus cleansing your body from the roots. Warm sand pouches dissolve any muscle tension, allowing the body to truly let go and achieve a sense of equilibrium. When the heated sand potli is massaged on the body, it opens the pores and relaxes the muscles, permitting the carefully selected herbs to infuse in the body and mind, leading to immense relaxation.
The massage is done on specific pressure points that help in healing the body. They also help stimulate blood circulation which leads to healthy skin. The treatment helps to dismiss pain and inflammation, develop healthy blood circulation and flexibility. Some of the herbs used are Ashwagandha which relaxes tensed muscles and helps reduce stress, Mustard and neem which imparts the skin and body a healthy glow, Turmeric and ginger which revitalises and purifies the body and Rosemary and rice which is known to improve blood circulation and ease tension in the muscles. Also, Aloe Vera and onion are used to reduce inflammation. A truly refreshing 75 minute 75-minute sand detox will leave you feeling energised and glowing.
