We can all agree that French ladies always look elegant and they also look 10 years younger than they really are! The French Skin Specialist behind the cute, intimate parlor Sofia Day Spa specializes in tailored premium facials. Pop in for a consultation and they will analyze your skin’s needs and customize the perfect treatment for it. They use their own line of all natural Aloe cosmetics and their forte is Light Therapy and Ultrasound.

Sofia Spa is located in the stylish whitewashed Joglo above Pomelo Café. Their treatment rooms are super clean, quiet and equipped with the state of the art cosmetic machines that will steam, scrub and exfoliate your skin, just so you will emerge out of the session feeling rejuvenated, looking like a goddess of Bali! Sofia’s Spa therapists are super well trained, skilled and professional.

Don’t forget to try another signaure treat called California intuitive massage. New to Bali, this style of massage follows an intuitive flow based on your problematic areas, rather than a rehearsed sequence of strokes, performed at the same rhythm.

Another specialty exclusive to Sofia Spa is Sugar Cane waxing – ladies rejoice! You no longer have to run around the island like queens of the jungle!

The sugar paste is cold, so it won’t burn you and the revolutionary method is considerably less painful and visibly more effective. Smooth silky skin for weeks on end guaranteed.

Not your regular mani & pedi salon. Maria Curau is an art, social and beauty platform who makes her own nail polishes Kester Black in a wide range of on trend shades. Not only are all their gorgeous lacquers non-toxic – free of all pesky chemicals that the regular nail polishes contain, they are also all vegan – not tested on animals, which means cruelty free beauty products. On top of their ethics, which resonates with many Canggu babes, what makes this new salon super in demand is their minimal, abstract nail art.

You can create your own design or look at their social media for inspiration. The combinations are endless! The pampering session at Maria Curau comes complete with in house made Kombucha tea, offered complimentary with each treatment. Grab your girlfriend and book in for a creative mani & pedi at Canggu’s new favorite salon and have your nails adorned while receiving a relaxing back rub. The salon sits at the end of a serene back road overlooking the emerald rice paddies and has hammocks outside for you to chill in after your treatment. Maria Curau is also very community oriented and often organizes charitable events to give back to Bali.
