Spas are entities devoted to enhancing overall well-being through a variety of professional services that encourage the renewal of mind, body, and spirit. (Definition of the Spa from the International SPA Association) The unique culture and traditions of Bali provide the ideal foundation for a flourishing and meaningful spa environment. Tri Hita Karana (Three Sources of Prosperity) is the backbone of Balinese Hindu philosophy and the guiding principle of daily life. It’s a way to live, rather than a way to think. This holistic philosophy aims for spiritual and physical well-being through a harmonious relationship with God, each other, and the physical environment. With its goal of balance in life, Tri Hita Karana embodies the spirit of spa and fuels the hearts and minds of Bali’s spa and wellness professionals.
