The Yum List loves a good kneading! Six spa visits, totaling 18 hours in 11 days is what it took to try out the best reputed spas in Bali. After hours of scrubbing, pounding and massaging, if you put The Yum List on the barbecue right now she'd be the tenderest steak in town. (Oh dear, the things I do in the name of research. ;-)) Here you have The Yum List's pick of the:
Best Spas in Bali
Spa Village Resort Tembok Bali - the art of spa services has been perfected by YTL's group of spas. Making use of the region's culture, treatments are always of superb quality and infused with local healing wisdom.

Lembah Spa, Viceroy Bali, Ubud - the view from the Lembah spa is nothing short of stunning. Expert European style treatments in the capable hands of the genteel Balinese. A must visit when in Ubud.

Away Spa, W, Seminyak - the most unique spa experience we had in Bali. A galactic setting with oxygen masks and stretching getting you warmed up pre-treatment. We loved the Chill Bar encouraging you to REtox after your Detox.

Four Seasons Resort and Spa at Jimbaran Bay - a luxurious classic. Nobody does opulence quite like the Four Seasons.

Jamahal Private Resort and Spa, Jimbaran - this intimate spa is truly private, catering for a maximum of two guests at at time. Expert hands give one of the best massages in Bali.

Mandara Spa, Nikko Bali - taking a spa treatment in your own private villa is one of the most hendonistic experiences imaginable. It's set up like magic while you're at breakfast and then whisked away again while you're in the shower, leaving you to luxuriate in relaxation without having to leave your room.
