You’re on holiday! Time to relax, rejuvenate and pamper yourself to pieces. Give your hands and feet a special treat at one of these top Seminyak nail parlours.
#1 SPRING SPA
Everything at Spring Spa is chilled. White-pitched ceilings, a DJ spinning tunes from his second-level booth, super-comfy reclining chairs and a hip New York vibe. This is the go-to venue for sensational shellac.
Spring Spa is the tropical child of New Zealand mother business by the same name – and boasts the same great menu and high service standard.
Try the hot milk and almond pedicure, where your silky just-buffed feet are soaked in hot whole milk before being rubbed with mega-moistening almond oil. This hour-long treatment is so lushly gentle that it sends guests to cloud nine, so don’t be surprised if you doze off while being stroked, massaged and painted with shellac that lasts very well in the humid heat of Bali.
If time is short, drop in for a 15-minute file + paint for Rp75,000, or even just a clip + buff for Rp50,000 – very popular with the gents.
Seminyak has two Spring Spas – one in Seminyak Village and another opposite the W Retreat on Petitenget. One more coming to Canggu, Bali is in the planning stages.
#2 AMO SPA
Amo Spa in Petitenget, the brainchild of native New York supermodel/actress Navia Nguyen, never fails when it comes to consistency and quality.
Magazine racks spill over with the latest issues of Gourmet Traveller and Vogue straight from Australia, so be sure to grab a few to browse from your comfy chair. You can also charge up your phone while you’re there, but leave some room on the armrest for a tropical cocktail or a hot coffee and cookie from the cute mini café.
Then just sit back and slip your feet into a warm-water soak (dressed up with a sprinkling of pretty petals). Completely zen out while the nail experts create masterpieces on your fingers and toes, and get an amazing shoulder massage while your nails are drying.
There’s also AMO Express on Jalan Basangkasa and a mobile service if you’d prefer some in-villa pampering.
#3 THINK PINK NAILS
This is the only nail salon in Bali that has ALL 72 shades of GelColor by OPI.
