Jakarta, the metropolitan capital of Indonesia, may be a modern city made up largely of highrise buildings and busy offices and shopping malls, however, it is also a city of contrasts. A one or two-hours’ drive can lead you to lush tropical forests that would have you forgiven for thinking you had stumbled into a rainforest. Moreover, amidst its upbeat rhythms and fast paced choreographies, the bustling capital city still offers revitalizing experiences in the many Spas and wellness centers.
Compared to Spas in Bali and other vacation resorts, the spa scene in Jakarta is sophisticatedly progressive and treatment menus boast an equal measure of contemporary and holistic remedies that will leave even the fussiest Spa in Jakarta enthusiast greatly impressed.
Indonesia is the birthplace of many tropical beauty products and secrets. Many of today’s natural treatments for hair, skin, and even medical cures can be found in the vast botanical variety of Indonesia’s 6,500 species of herbs. Some treatments that are in use today were once carefully6 guarded secrets kept within the palace walls of the Central Javanese royal families and are just recently becoming available to the public. These-and more- is the kind of experience that you can expect as you try some of the spa treatments in Jakarta.
