Misool’s massage and beauty treatments feature Misool’s signature range of natural products, most of which they create fresh each morning in their own kitchen. They use only food-grade ingredients, and choose local organic products whenever possible. You’ll find scrubs hand-blended from local ingredients such as candlenut and our own coconuts, face toner derived from freshly pressed cucumber, body wraps using our home-grown aloe plants and freshly harvested banana leaves, aromatherapy using fragrant hand-pressed coconut oil, and scrubs using coffee from the highlands of Papua. Their essential oils are of the highest quality. Enjoy our massage and beauty treatments in the privacy of your own room or at The Lookout.
Their spa manager, Juliette, has nearly 15 years experience managing and providing training programs to spas. Originally from the small island of Ambon in Eastern Indonesia, Juliette has worked in settings as diverse as the Maldives, Bali, Wakatobi, China, and Malaysia. Here are a few of their treatments:
Traditional Massage: Enjoy an herbal footwash followed by a soothing variety of traditional Indonesian massage techniques, handed down over the generations to encourage relaxation, dispel tension, and stimulate circulation. Using our signature Misool Eco Resort blend of lemongrass ginger massage oil, this massage features a gentle blend of stretching, long strokes, acupressure, and muscle manipulation.
Aromatherapy Massage: Essential oils warm and calm the body, releasing delicate aromas to deepen relaxation and enhance well being. Rhythmic strokes of varying degrees of pressure follow a single direction, increasing circulation while stimulating the lymphatic system. Especially the following aromas are highly recommend: coffee spice, peppermint lavender, citrus clove, and lemongrass ginger.
Aloe Vera Rejuvenation: A flower petal foot bath is followed by a gentle traditional massage using local organic Raja Ampat coconut oil. Natural aloe vera gel is applied in soothing strokes, cooling and moisturising skin. The body is then wrapped in freshly-cut banana leaves to seal in the moisture. This is particularly recommended for sun-damaged and mature skin.
