A Thoughtful Start, Blessing Ceremony for Heavenly Spa by Westin™
The Westin Resort Nusa Dua, Bali hosted a blessing ceremony to coincide the launch of its newly opened Heavenly Spa by Westin™. This auspicious occasion was an opportunity to praise the Gods and express gratitude for the blessings that have been bestowed upon the opening of the Spa.
Like all other Balinese Hindu religious events, it involved a purification ritual to cleanse the area with burning sandalwood, splashes of holy water and the spilling of sacrificial blood. Elaborate offerings of fruit and flowers filled the temple while a high caste priest led the ceremony by reciting ancient mantras.
Heavenly Spa by Westin™ is a nature-inspired sanctuary for total body, mind and spirit renewal. It will offer a nurturing menu that combines traditional spa services and ancient healing practices with a unique holistic approach to wellness. Comprehensive facilities include 16 contemporary treatment rooms and a luxury hair spa.
“The blessing ceremony is considered to be one of the most important days on the opening of the Heavenly Spa by Westin™. It was indeed a great honour for me to celebrate this religious occasion with my associates. The fact that the Balinese still manage to balance their social and religious obligations even in the work place is truly inspiring. Even our guests were fascinated with the proceedings of this culturally enriching experience,” comments Mr. Bipan Kapur, Managing Director of The Westin Resort Nusa Dua, Bali.
