#1 PURI MAS BOUTIQUE RESORTS & SPA | LOMBOK, INDONESIA

Sara Sanders, General Manager at Puri Mas Boutique Resorts & Spa, shares her top tips for a romantic spa experience:

  • Uncover smoother skin gently with a lavender oil infused salt peeling

TIP 2:  My top tip for giving your partner a relaxing spa experience at home is to first set the mood, using essential oils of Sandalwood, Rose & Vetiver blended together and lightly sprayed to give the room a warm heady aroma.

Next, prepare a deep bath decorated with rose petals and add a few drops of the blended oil to the warm water.

Then with a chilled bottle of the best champagne relax with your partner in the fragrant water.  Following the warm bath - a prepared blanket with warmed towels where you will gently massage your partner with warm massage oil blended with the fragrant blended oils.


TIP 3:  The heady essence of Sandwood, Rose & Vetiver are the ultimate fragrances for romance Three of the sexiest fragrances on the planet!!
