ITINERARY


TRAVEL SUMMARY

Canggu is a small village in South Bali, between beaches and rice fields. Very relaxing, it’s a nice area to surf, bike in the rice fields, and discover the famous temple of Tanah Lot.

DAY 2 – 7: GILI AIR (LOMBOK) (5 nights)
The Gili islands have something to make every traveler happy. After travelling the world for 6 years, I’ve decided to call this island home. On this eco- island, no motorized vehicles are allowed. The island is most famous because it’s crawling with marine life. Gili is the ideal place for relaxing, snorkeling, scuba diving and beach parties.

All rooms are different but animated by the same soft and refined atmosphere. Balinese traditional materials (teak, Alang- Alang roofs, drapes and cushions in batik…) and modern furnishings adorn the villas that seem genuinely from a decor magazine.

SLOW SPA:

Designed by the architect Christian Lechien, the spa at Slow Villas adds a wellness appetite to the villa complex, which is essentially designed for you to recharge and fully relax: three massage rooms, a bath for relaxation and a pilates/yoga studio.

The Slow Spa’s architecture is inspired by the round curves of the island, making you think of a bamboo cathedral. The central window adds air and light to the whole ensemble with gentle curves. The peaceful feeling and the silence are supporting the architecture that’s built around the natural elements, thus recalling Slow’s philosophy. The treatments: massages, facials, treatments for hands and feet, and therapy through movements, respond to our belief at Slow in relation to wellness. For Slow Spa’s signature treatments, we use products that are natural and alive,
especially fresh aloe vera cultivated on-site.

Slow Villas and Spa is the result of a Belgian trio, who joined forces to create a home
away from home. Our goal, your happiness!
