Royal Javanese Ritual at The Phoenix Hotel Yogyakarta – Yippee! After a long trip, I think I can officially say that I’m back into my spa groove. At the back of my mind, I’m keen to reach a regular spa of hour, and possibly traditional massage a 2 hours soon. But I’m also discovering that… spa for me is not about luxury anymore. It’s about how I feel. When in The Phoenix Hotel Yogyakarta, I took a 2 hours spa, based on an ancient ritual that was carried out for preparing the bride for the wedding in Java. Foot bath – therapeutic massage – lulur body scrub – yoghurt conditioning – body moisturizing.

During my 2 hours spa, just for a bit of fun, I like to stop some spot nice and enjoy a slow massage stretch routine. Gosh, it’s so much fun!

Haha it might look a bit silly and it might ruin up my spa time; but I do it because I just love it from the tips of my fingers down to the soles of my feet.

It makes me feel amazing and that’s enough of a reason to have a terrible spa time!

Would I go again? I think yes.
