There’s no shortage of indulgent massages at The Spa at The Setai. The offerings at the Forbes Travel Guide Four-Star spa include The Setai Jade Massage ($325 for 60 minutes), which is a blend of Shiatsu, Balinese, Thai, Swedish and Hawaiian Lomi-Lomi techniques performed by two therapists who work in sync to release your tension. Another favorite is the Ayurvedic Abhyanga massage, an aromatherapy massage that’s based on an ancient ritual and uses warmed therapeutic oils ($250 for 90 minutes).
Personally, we loved the Ancient Balinese Massage, which we enjoyed for its unique blend of Balinese palming, stretching and pressure point techniques ($180 for an hour and $235 for 90 minutes). If you rather not get too oiled up during your spa visit, opt for the Traditional Thai Massage, which doesn’t use oils but a series of stretches and pressure point techniques to balance the flow of “chi” in the body ($270 for 90 minutes and $360 for 120 minutes). There’s also the Himalayan Hot Stone Massage ($250 for 90 minutes); and the Deep Tissue Massage, which is available in 60- or 90-minute sessions ($210 to $275).
