The perfect spa experience is about rejuvenation for both body and soul, a way to unwind, ease physical and mental tension and completely forget about the troubles many of us encounter on a daily basis.

The newly opened Heavenly Spa at The Westin Jakarta takes the weary and exhausted on a relaxing journey with a wide range of therapeutic treatments. Located on the 50th floor of the hotel, the elegant treatment rooms and other facilities at Heavenly Spa all come with a stunning, uninterrupted view of the city. From up here, the traffic, the pollution and the crowds seem to be nothing more than an optical illusion.

The friendly staff at Heavenly Spa recommend to use the facilities before the treatment commences: take a dip in the jacuzzi before moving on to the steam room and the Experience Shower. The hotel’s pool and gym are located on the same level, affectionately dubbed the “Wellness Floor”. 

Heavenly Spa offers various treatments including the Heavenly Spa Massage, Heavenly Glow Facial, Heavenly Spa Sense of Place and exclusive treatments for men such as Sports Massage, Men’s Essential Massage and Skin Vitality treatment. However, it is the Heavenly Spa Signature Packages that are the most unique: Hope, Dream, Wish and Nurture, all of which last 90 minutes.

Hope aims to energize both body and mind while at the same time strengthening and revitalizing the skin through the use of botanical essential oils and body exfoliation.

Dream is a beauty programme that detoxifies, slims, firms and sculpts the body in order to get you in shape with a specifically developed massage technique that stimulates the circulation and lymphatic system.

The Wish treatment includes a soothing aromatherapy massage to relieve muscle tensions, followed by the Bali Coffee Scrub to gently exfoliate the skin, leaving it smooth and shiny. A lovely touch is added at the beginning of the treatment, when guests are asked to choose between three stones that are inscribed with the words Love, Hope and Gratitude, and then focus on what that word means to them – the stone is then placed below the massage table during the treatment to guide the customers according to their own wish.

Nurture is a package for mothers to be. It helps pregnant women with muscle aches, cramps and back pains, improves blood circulation and reduces swelling. The skilled therapists make sure that their guests feel comfortable and relaxed at all times.

To complete the wellness journey, Heavenly Spa also provides nutritious, energizing meals. Its SuperFoodsRx menu – which is part of the Westin brand – features healthy dishes such as pumpkin soup, spinach egg white omelet, steamed sea bass and roasted salmon as well as freshly squeezed juices.

It is hard to return to the chaos of Jakarta after spending a couple of hours at the spa. At the same time, it is a relief to know that this heavenly escape can be revisited whenever one is in need of a little peace of mind.
