A Perfect Escape: The Ayung Spa and Lunch ExperienceArchipelago Diaries
Inspired by the goddess of life and fertility, Dewi Sri, the spa at the Ayung Resort embodies all that Bali represents. Drawing on the vitality of the Ayung River below it and the surrounding tropical forest, the Dewi Sri Spa is a secluded escape for those in need of quiet refreshment and rejuvenation. Now, with their special Spa and Lunch experience, you can do just that - disappear into the wilderness for a while.
The Ayung Resort itself is one of Bali’s most unique destinations; it combines luxury, art and culture to create a place unlike any other on the island. Perched on the side of the Ayung River valley, surrounded only by the thicket of trees and bush and sounds of rushing water, the resort embraces nature as its only neighbour.
Their Spa and Lunch experience invites you to enjoy all that Ayung offers. The experience begins at 8.30am with a 90-minute relaxation massage at the Dewi Sri Spa, which uses a range of exotic therapies inspired by Balinese philosophies. Created to soothe tired muscles and calm the mind,
the massage eases you into a relaxed state of mind for the rest of the day.
Afterwards, the indulgence continues at the Wijaya Kusuma Fine Dining Restaurant where an exquisite four-course lunch accompanied by a glass of wine awaits. You will also be spoiled by the stunning views from the restaurant, a panorama of the vast, green gorge that surrounds Ayung. Award-winning Balinese Executive Chef Made Lugra, who stands as Wijaya Kusuma’s guardian of flavour and quality, will not disappoint. The food is only complemented by the restaurant itself,; a semi-alfresco space, decorated with classic Balinese sculptures depicting stories of Hindu legends, that enjoys undisturbed views over the verdant Ayung River Valley, from where the hotel gets its name.
So, if you’re in need of escape, a morning and afternoon of luxuriating in the bliss of Bali’s natural surroundings, head to the Ayung Resort for their Spa and Lunch experience. Starting at 8.30am, available for only IDR 1,750,000 nett per person.
