Couples Relax Together.
You don’t have to massage his feet and he does not have to rub your shoulders, it’s the prefect reason to visit a day spa as a couple. Spending time together, yet relaxing in your own way to improving your health and wellness. ikatan Spa is Bali, Noosa style and designed around a village concept with open spaces on acreage of gardens. ikatan is not a ‘girly’ style spa, it’s more like a Balinese Resort, which is why ikatan Day Spa is more appealing and comfortable for men. While we have a lot of men visit ikatan on their own, most love spending time with their loved one at ikatan for couples treatments.
What’s a Day Spa?
Some people think visiting a Day Spa means you have to sit in a ‘spa bath’ when in actual fact the word ‘spa’ comes from old Roman times when people would visit communal baths, where attendants cared for the guests beauty and wellness needs. While everyone visiting the ‘spa’ had option of sitting in ‘spa baths’ or hot thermal pools, just outside the city of Rome, a visit to the ‘spa’ was for a day of pampering as well as bathing.
Today the term ‘spa’ is more about the treatments offered at a day spa location as opposed to the bathing, due to the fact we all have bathrooms in our homes and more often than not we also have swimming pools or can take a dip in the ocean, therefore, we don’t require communal bathing.
Communal bathing is becoming more a thing of the past as people have become more health and safety conscious about hygiene and the use of chemicals in the water to prevent transmittable infections and are opting more for the hands-on touch from treatments in preference to heated spa pools.
Couples Change Together and Stay Together.
Couples Packages are very popular at ikatan Spa and for this reason, we have two double villa-style treatment rooms. Unlike other day spas, at ikatan Spa you change together in the privacy of your villa treatment room and lay on the massage bed covered with a cotton sarong ready for your therapists to start your treatments. There are no communal change rooms to be found at ikatan, no sharing with strangers while you get changed nor do you have to walk around the day spa in an ill-fitting bathrobe.
Spending time well trained spa therapists caring for you is a relaxing way to be together. It’s nice to see so many couples opting to spend time at a day spa for a birthday, anniversary, holiday, de-stressing or just simply because they want to make it a relaxing date or surprise. Some couples make the most kid free time, by escaping to a place like ikatan where there are no kids, (unless they are booked for treatment with their parent) makes for a relaxing adult date to rejuvenate and de-stress or celebrate together.
It’s sometimes hard to find time to be with each other and when you do, there is nothing better than having others care for you, with relaxing treatments and time in the gardens with a wine, local craft beer, tea with a platter surrounded by nature. The effects of time spent de-stressing goes with you beyond the day spa as it creates memories and special times spent together in a tranquil place surround by nature.
I Want What She’s Having
Most of ikatan Spa’s treatments are suitable for men and women but some are definitely a stand out option that men prefer. Massage is, of course, a must-have, and men enjoy having a 90-minute massage because it offers time to address the areas of tension and stress held in the body. Another favourite for men is a head massage or foot therapy and both treatments take place with clothes on, in the garden room surrounded by nature, which also helps everyone feel more comfortable, before they are taken to their treatment room to change for the other treatments.
