There are spa junkies and then there are Aqua-Spa Junkies, who once they experience thalassotherapy, quickly become addicted to the ancient healing benefits especially muscle toning, tension relief, anti-ageing, improved sleep quality and detoxification.
Well-Placed Insider is stands among this latter group, and so is very happy to share the news of the resort’s new Freeflow Bubbles Package, offering unlimited access to the world’s largest Aquatonic Seawater Therapy Pool.

Freeflow Bubbles may typically be a reference to unlimited Champagne, but AYANA’s version comes without the hangover. Rest assured that an aspirin would not be needed afterwards. In fact, your Freeflow Bubbles Passport is valid for up to seven days and will have you feeling more energized, relaxed and- yes- younger than ever! Now, who would say no to that?

An ancient healing ritual from France dating back 5,000 years, thalassotherapy’s main objective is to increase blood circulation and restore vital minerals lost as a result of stress, pollution and poor diet/lifestyle (guilty!). Well-Placed Insider has learned that the secret lies in the fact that the chemical composition of seawater is so similar to that of human blood, so the skin is able to absorb trace minerals and ions such as magnesium, potassium and calcium sulphates when immersed in water heated to body temperature. The Aquatonic Pool at AYANA’s Thermes Marins Spa contains 700 million liters of water directly supplied from the underlying Indian Ocean and warmed to optimum temperatures to rebalance such mineral deficiencies. Thanks to its floating effects, you are able to effortlessly exercise through 12 hydromassage stations containing over 60 individual therapeutic jet streams, micro-bubbles and geysers to rehabilitate injured muscles, to relieve stress and for relaxation.

If only exercising could always be this fun… who needs a sweaty cardio work-out?
These are just some of the benefits of AYANA’s Aquatonic Seawater Therapy Pool:

  • relief of the symptoms of eczema, psoriasis, back and muscular pain, tension and stress
  • muscle toning, reduction in cellulite, improved metabolism and cardiovascular functioning
  • strengthening of immune system and lymphatic drainage for muscle repair, improved sleep quality and relaxation
  • skin detoxification and nourishment to support anti-ageing therapies

On Monday 28th January, 20 bartenders form all around Bali including two from AYANA competed in the 2013 DIAGEO Reserve
World Class Challenge. Here are some highlights from the event:

As part of the event, Rock Bar hosted Singaporean-based Japanese bartender Akihiro Eguchi. After judging 20 contestants from Bali' s most high-profile bars in the first round of the Bali competition held at AYANA, Akihiro Eguchi, who is a previous winner of the DIAGEO Reserve World Class Challenge, got behind the bar at Rock Bar to serve up his signature 'Sun Flower' consisting of Ketel One Vodka, passionfruit, fresh grapefruit juice, Absinth and sugar syrup. It sure made the sun come out here!

It was a pretty tense moment for the bartenders. In this photo, one contestant gives a classic cocktail a retro-chic, vodka-based twist.

 

Congratulations to our Beverage Manager D'Agisna Ramdhani (above left) who won 3rd place with his 'Burnt Orange Chocopolitan' consisting of KetelOne Vodka 40 ml, Creme de Cacao White 20 ml, Burnt Orange infused Tripple Sec 20 ml, Egg white 10 ml, Kintamani Orange Jelly 20 ml. Well done, D'Agisna! Watch out for his creation to hit the Rock Bar and Martini Bar menus soon.
