The Ways to Relax (Rest, Recharge and Rejuvenate)

Every once in a while, our minds and bodies need a break from doing what they do best, keeping our bodies functioning. To rejuvenate both your mind and body, one of the best ways is with a massage and spa treatment during your holiday in Umalas.

Below are ways a spa treatment can help rest, recharge and rejuvenate your mind and body.

Promote Muscle Relaxation

When our bodies experience stress, our nervous system floods with the stress hormone known as cortisol, which has an effect of tensing up the muscles, dilating the pupils and increasing your heart rate, amongst others. When this occurs for a prolonged period of time it can cause our muscles to remain tense without us realizing it. Eventually it can lead to all sorts of health complications and ailments.

This is where a spa and massage treatment can help alleviate that problem. The purpose of a spa treatment is to target those stiff muscle groups and promote relaxation on the body overall. In addition to relaxing the muscles, your body will also benefit from increased circulation, which allows the body to deliver oxygen rich blood and nutrients to help the recovery process.

Improve Circulation

As we briefly explained in the previous point, spa treatment increases the blood flow in tense muscle groups as well as the body overall. Improving the body’s circulation has proven tangible benefits to our health, such as increased flexibility, improved posture and allows the body to have a much easier time carrying away metabolic waste from our internal organs and muscles.

Help Lower Blood Pressure

Long-term studies have proven that routine spa and massage treatment are an effective way to lower blood pressure. In fact, the same longitudinal studies also indicate that regular spa treatments can help maintain both systolic and diastolic blood pressure. For those unfamiliar, our blood pressure is measured using two numbers, a top number (systolic) and a bottom number (diastolic). The former refers to the pressure in your arteries during heart contractions, whereas the latter is your resting blood pressure in between heart beats. Furthermore, a healthy blood pressure can prevent a myriad of health complications such as stroke, hypertension, kidney failure and other heart-related diseases.

As a closing note, spa treatments are an excellent way to help our mind and bodies unwind. Oftentimes we don’t realize that we need that time for ourselves to recover. While you’re in Bali, why not complete the trip with a rejuvenated mind and body?

Here at The Santai, we offer up to 8 different spa treatments for our guests, ranging from 60 minutes to 90 minutes in duration. We recommend The Santai Signature Treatment for a full body treatment for the ultimate pampering experience.

An obvious factor in private dining is the level of privacy that you have with your partner in the restaurant. This can be defined by the degree of separation between your table and the rest of the restaurant, the level of involvement of the waitresses, and how the overall staff communicates with you during your stay.

Interior layout

Something that is often overlooked in a dining experience is the way the restaurant lays out its interior fixtures and floor plan. From the moment guests walk in, to how they are lead to their table adds to the overall impression and dining experience.

Service and hospitality

The backbone of any great restaurant is the level of dedication and passion of its staff. This is especially true in a private dining venue, as they should be able to read the situation of the guests, and also know how to carry themselves as not to interrupt in the middle of a special moment for example.


If you truly want to create a special moment with your partner, you’ll want to dine in a restaurant that will help you personalize those moments. Whether that’s a special occasion, a proposal, an intimate celebration, or anything in between, make that moment unforgettable with a personalization request with the restaurant.
