You will be staying at Slow Villas and Spa. The villa has ten contemporary luxury villas with Balinese concept. Each room offers the same comfort - one or two bedroom villas with terrace, swimming pool, kitchenette and office space, comfortable sunbeds, and lovely coconut garden.
Designed by the architect Christian Lechien, the spa at Slow Villas adds a wellness appetite to the villa complex, which is essentially designed for you to recharge and fully relax: three massage rooms, a bath for relaxation and a pilates or yoga studio. The Slow Spa’s architecture is inspired by the round curves of the island, making you think of a bamboo cathedral. The central window adds air and light to the whole ensemble with gentle curves.
The peaceful feeling and the silence are supporting the architecture that’s built around the natural elements, thus recalling Slow’s philosophy. The treatments: massages, facials, treatments for hands and feet, and therapy through movements, respond to our belief at Slow in relation to wellness. For Slow Spa’s signature treatments we use products that are natural and alive, especially fresh aloe vera cultivated on-site.
