After much anticipation, Raffles Hotel Jakarta officially opens its brand new spa facility to the public. Inspired by the daily transformation of the lotus flower, the spa blends the best of both worlds; the tested traditional and local methods and the most cutting edge technologies in beauty therapy and rejuvenation.
On the menu are a variety of personalized treatments with authentic Indonesian touches. Among its signatures is the Indonesian Heritage Experience, starting with with a soothing footbath and Raffles Signature foot massage. The skin is then exfoliated with the anise herb, followed by a traditional Indonesian Heritage massage, using a combination of Lomi Lomi, Balinese and Javanese massage techniques. The 150 East-meets-West journey will be complete with a relaxing head and scalp massage.
The spa spans an area of 700 square meters. Retreat to the outdoor pool after a long day; alternatively, choose to recharge in the fitness facility complete with the latest Technogym® equipment. After an energizing workout, reward yourself with the plump prize of a rejuvenating treatment in one of the six luxuriously appointed treatments rooms, two VIP couple suites, or hair and nail salon.
There are also separate male and female relaxation areas, each with its own steam room with aromatic heat, ice fountain, and unique rainforest experience shower, where you get to shower with all your senses flooded with soothing stimuli as if showering in the middle of a thick jungle.
Other relaxation-inducing options include the Traditional Jaipong Body Stretching, the Lavender Dreams Experience body treatment, the Radiance Skin Brightening Facial and the Oriental Foot Reviver. Come with a partner and try out the 60 or 90-minute Treasured Time treatment. There is also the Traditional Hair Creambath in the salon that is pure luxury for the crowning glory.
