Revivo Wellness Resort

Nusa Dua, Denpasar & South Bali, Indonesia Book from Book from £235 per night

A serene spa hotel with lush gardens, a shimmering pool and fabulous wellness programmes, located on Nusa Dua peninsula in south Bali
If you're looking to recharge both body and soul, Revivo is a revelation. This chic spa hotel set in 2.5 hectares of deeply relaxing grounds and gardens on Nusa Dua peninsula is one of the best wellness retreats in Bali. The design mixes traditional Balinese architecture with a contemporary minimalist feel - which means you can relax in style. The large airy suites have colonial four-posters, thatched ceilings, sunken baths and walk-in showers; villas have outdoor showers, and some have private pools. Elsewhere, a bar overlooking the pool terrace, a restaurant for delicious Balinese food, and even a shuttle bus to whizz you down to the beach.

Although we have yet to visit, Revivo exists ‘to soothe the spirit, rejuvenate the body and enrich the mind’ and the superb wellness programmes seem to do just that. There are several to choose from: detox, de-stress, healthy living, mindfulness for professionals and emotional balance among others. Each lasts two days and includes a range of yoga, meditation, spa treatments and ancient Balinese therapies. Your day starts with three healing ‘shots,’ while the food – super tasty and seriously healthy – is part of the programme. There’s no flimflam here, just total excellence delivered by fantastic staff.

Highs

  • The setting is serene: beautiful, peaceful, very relaxing and totally private
  • Excellent wellness retreats and spa treatments – don’t miss the floating yoga!

  • Fresh, wholesome, organic and balanced food (and the only vegan/vegetarian menu in Nusa Dua)

Best time to go

April to October are the drier months, but even January (the wettest month) will have lots of sun during the day.

Our top tips

Lots of tourists hire mopeds and don’t wear helmets as it’s not required by law. Don’t join them. Either wear a helmet and dress for the occasion – shorts and T-shirts offer no protection – or use a taxi.

Rooms

Suites and villas are scattered about, each private and peaceful, with pretty gardens and a terrace where you can eat if you want a quiet night away from the restaurant.

Suites are large with high ceilings, beautiful four-poster beds wrapped up in crisp white cotton and daybeds under canopies. You’ll find bowls of fruit, fresh flowers and big doors that open onto a private garden. Marble bathrooms are a delight with white robes, walk-in showers and sunken baths overlooking the garden. All have space for one extra bed.

Eating

Healthy Balinese cooking is a major part of the ethos here. The menus are long and varied, use the freshest ingredients (organic where possible), and incorporate food sourced from local farmers. It’s all fresh – no additives, preservatives or processed food touches your plate – with the menu explaining the health benefits of each ingredient.

Breakfast starts with three healthy 'shots' to prepare your gut for food. After that, you could try banana porridge, mango with coconut yoghurt, poached eggs with guacamole, fresh fruits and juices and some delicious homemade bread.

Lunch and dinner offer more substantial plates, with raw vegan options, refreshing smoothies, lots of fantastic vegetarian dishes, perhaps soba noodles with avocado and local goats cheese or Balinese falafels with beetroot hummus, baba ganoush and pita bread. You’ll also find fish and meat, even a burger, but the vibe here is very much towards exploring the healthier, kinder dishes and feeling all the better for it.
