Driving along Batu Bolong, Canggu has become a daily ritual for some Bali beach lovers, and it’s quite obvious that this is the next great up-and-coming spot in west Bali. Located on the left side of the road, just after the ever popular hot spot “Betelnut Café,” the spa is much more spacious than its boutique entrance leads you to believe.
Restaurants, healthy cafes, surf shops, and chic boutiques are popping up almost weekly on this road. Nevertheless, the spa Gold Dust has seriously established itself as one of the best places to get pampered in the area.
Its name says it all, and—true to its motto—you will really “feel like gold” once you have spent a couple of hours in the skilled hands of the Gold Dust therapists. Bright yellow and cream is the color scheme for this shabby chic establishment, which—despite its fancy name and décor—expresses the simplicity and gentleness of its Australian owner.
Start with the 24K Gold Leaf Facial, a Deep Cleanse & Gold Leaf Treatment. It lasts about one hour and forty minutes and will leave you feeling completely relaxed. After a deep cleanse, the well-trained therapist applies sheets of the high grade gold leaf to lift and firm the skin and reduce the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles. While the gold works its magic, you will be treated to a scalp, hand, and foot massage with the addition of hot towel wrapping on the hands and feet. This treatment is their signature facial and a really good non-invasive skin rejuvenating treatment. What sets this facial apart from others, beside the high quality products, is the attention to detail of the therapists whose skill and techniques result in a overall feeling of deep relaxation.
A cup of delicious fresh ginger tea awaits you upon arrival or on your way out…or both. Their extensive spa menu will give you more than enough options to satisfy your needs for a newer and fresher you.
All treatments are professionally performed and well explained. Clean, efficient, and relaxing are three words to best describe this wellness business.
