Javanese Lulur Treatment. My day at Absolute Nirvana Spa & Gardens began with a ritual foot bath, provided by my wonderful massage therapist. The foot bath — “honors the divine within and helps the guest become grounded and centered.” After the initial foot bath I indulged in the Javanese Lulur treatment. According to the spa treatment menu, “Originating in the palaces of Java in the 17th century, this treatment was enjoyed by Javanese princesses in preparation for their wedding day. A truly delicious experience which leaves the skin soft, supple and shining.” The cost of the deluxe treatment at Absolute Nirvana is $250.
During the spa treatment, the entire body is massaged with fragrant jasmine garland oil, and a nourishing yogurt and honey mask is applied to hydrate the skin. The body is then exfoliated with a scrub made of sandalwood, brown rice powder and turmeric. Following the Javanese Lulur treatment at Absolute Nirvana, you enjoy a steam shower.
The Bath. After you have rinsed off, you step into a hand carved granite tub, to delight in a beautiful cloud of red rose petals. On the side of the tub, you glimpse a small tray with a selection of fresh fruits, homemade organic chocolate truffles and the most wonderful ginger tea you have ever sampled.
Absolute Nirvana definitely lives up to its name. The Santa Fe spa provides blissful decadence at its best.
