The skilled staff will ensure you get what you deserve after a long haul flight – total pampering of course. Step off the plane straight into heaven with the Sleep-Well Tonight treatment, which is over three hours of rejuvenation for the body, mind and soul.

Set atop a cliff-top contemporary hotel, this divine spa is definitely a must stop relaxation destination for topnotch massages, offered by a team of first-rate therapists. If you’re in need of a full body pampering, our top pick is the ‘Journey to You’ which consists of nutritious breakfast followed by yoga, loads of spa therapies, lunch, sunset meditation, dinner and the finale, a heavenly massage under the stars.
Ubud is well known as a health and wellbeing hotspot. How do you choose between the luxury hotels and five star spas? If you’re going on views alone, the Viceroy’s Lembah Spa wins hands down.

Treatment rooms make the most of the view as well, with huge windows looking out to the lush landscape. Traditional Balinese therapies and Western treatments will keep you occupied for a few hours.
Sitting perched on the cliffs above Jimbaran Bay this is one of Bali’s most iconic hotels.
