Day 2 in Bali: Spa, food and more food

Needless to say, my second day in Bali fared better than did my first, no messing up drivers today as none were involved. After breakfast was had, I headed off to the Thalasso spa on-site for the spa package treatment I’d booked last week.

After completing all the paperwork, choosing which oil I preferred for my massage, which massage I wished, and choosing the chocolate scrub, I was off. First off was the hydro spa. After a few minutes laying here the therapist then proceeded to use a massage jet all over my body, heck that tickled the hell out of me.

After that was done it was on to the massage. The oil I could barely smell was now so much more evident and smelt heavenly. Next was the chocolate scrub, as she began doing this I thought to myself it was a poor choice for a guy with a hairy chest, and it was, she really had to work to scrub that off of me. That said, if you ever get the chance to have a chocolate scrub, do it, it felt amazing. I did have a desire to lick my fingers, a human Easter egg as I were. My spa treatment concluded with a peppermint wrap and head massage, I felt pretty good after 2.5 hours at the spa.


My spa treatment completed I returned to my room, changed and after a bit headed out for something for lunch. I settled on grilled salmon and vegetables whilst sat by the ocean, it’s hard to beat the combination. To enhance my mood I added to mojito, and they didn’t shrimp on the serving.

For dinner tonight I partook in Indian cuisine, and so glad I did too. For mains I had Punjabi Bhuna Gosht, a lovely lamb dish with garlic, onion, yogurt and chillies.

For dessert I had Gajar Halwa, an Indian Carrot Pudding. This was sweet, but not in a bad way, I really enjoyed its taste and would happily order this again, it has a subtle taste to it.

Well, has been a long day, back in my room and in need on a bath to wash the day away. Time to use some of those bath salts the resort provided.
