The award-winning Banyan Tree Spa at Bintan presents a brand new experience for guests, available from 1 November 2015. Guests can indulge in the Kemiri Nut Caress package in an alluring Sanctuary for the Senses and be pampered with a 70-minute Kemiri Nut Pouch Massage, followed by a 20-minute Wrap & Head, Face and Shoulders massage.
Banyan Tree Spa offers an exotic blend of massages and body treatments inspired by Asian health and beauty remedies. As the pioneer of the tropical garden concept, the spa uses ‘high-touch, low-tech’ approach that celebrates human touch and the use of natural and native ingredients.
The Kemiri Nut Caress begins with a welcome Foot Bath, a gentle foot scrub, hand massage and foot massage, which lull guests into a state of calm. The therapist next presents a choice of scents to relax or invigorate the senses.
Inspired by the signature Royal Banyan Herbal Pouch Massage, guests will experience the Kemiri Nut Pouch Massage, where pouches filled grated kemiri nuts are dipped in warm coconut oil to massage and moisturise the body. Our skilled therapists use a combination of Balinese, Swedish, and Hawaiian strokes to ensure that guests receive the perfect East-meets-West treatment to melt muscle tension and ease stress. A Head, Face and Shoulders massage completes the blissful experience while the body is wrapped in comforting linen for better absorption of the natural oils.
Indigenous to and commonly used in Indonesia for its nourishing properties, the kemiri nut and coconut oil are specially selected for guests with dry or sensitive skin.
Banyan Tree Spa treatments come with a 30-minute Calm Time of refreshments and relaxation. Pampered to perfection, guests can enjoy delectable refreshments while sipping on their choice of soothing tea in the lounge area.
Banyan Tree Spa Bintan features 15 treatment rooms, including four Royal Double Spa Pavilions, five Double Spa Pavilions, four Single Spa Treatment Rooms and two Beauty Treatment Rooms. The exclusive Royal Spa Pavilions are each equipped with a plunge pool, sunken bath, rainmist facilities and plush day beds reminiscent of a bale bengong, or a traditional Indonesian resting place, perfect for couples seeking a romantic retreat. The spa is surrounded by the natural beauty of rocks and old growth trees – as exemplified where two magnificent trees jut right through the rooms.
