When was the last time you were rocked to sleep?
The Balinese know only too well the principles of Sekala and Niskala – the seen and unseen – neither of which exists without the other. Through its two spas in Bali, Four Seasons explores these two inextricably intertwined philosophies. With the emphasis on the flow from Sekala to Niskala (the seen to the unseen), The Healing Village Spa at Jimbaran Bay focuses on restoring the physical body in order to facilitate exploration of the inner self. With the flow reversed from Niskala to Sekala (the unseen to the seen), The Sacred River Spa at Sayan focuses on evoking a sense of spiritual connection powerful enough to affect physical change.
Both spas showcase ancient rituals, locally grown ingredients and an authentic, educative approach. Our latest wellness innovations include:
Sacred Nap at Dharma Shanti Bale
Experience a nurturing childhood ritual in a unique jungle environment with an afternoon ‘Sacred Nap’. Suspended mid-air from the ceiling of the bamboo Dharma Shanti Bale in a 100% pure silk hammock, you are literally cocooned in the tranquility of the Sayan Valley. Feel your entire body relax as you are rocked gently to sleep by Ibu Fera — the resort’s resident Wellness Mentor and a former Buddhist Nun — as she shares the life story of Buddha.
Chakra Balance Massage with Aura-Soma® at The Healing Village Spa
In a world first, the power of touch is combined with Bali’s ancient healing philosophy and the modern wisdom of the Aura-Soma® Colour Care System to create a soul deep spa experience that unlocks emotional blockages, leaving you feeling lighter and at complete harmony with the world.
The two Four Seasons Resorts in Bali each offer comprehensive yoga programs in invigorating settings – one nestled amidst the jungle of the Sayan Valley, and the other perched on the edge of the sparkling Indian Ocean. Daily classes include the fun and dynamic AntiGravity® or ‘flying’ yoga, Power Yoga, Laughter Yoga, Full Moon Yoga and Night Fire Yoga.

Couples treatment: Swadhisthana Chakra Ceremony at The Sacred River Spa
Inspired by Balinese rituals for wedding, pregnancy and rites of passage, the 120-minute Swadhisthana Chakra Ceremony combines ancient wisdom, physical therapies and energy healing to restore balance and harmony to the ‘self development’ sacral chakra. Located in the lower abdomen, the Swadhisthana is our centre of sensuality and self-worth, fertility and creativity. When balanced, it enables us to ‘let go’, connect openly to others and develop our own sense of pleasure.
