No one would ever accuse Peik Lin Goh of being a spoilt princess. The only daughter of property tycoon Goh Wei Mun, Peik Lin regularly puts in 16-hour workdays for her family’s property development empire and logs millions of airmiles each year overseeing the company’s far flung projects (see Crazy Rich Asians). In her downtime, Peik Lin likes to unplug and de-stress at her favorite spa resort—Alila Villas Soori in Bali—which is just an hour and thirty minute hop from Singapore in her family’s Gulfstream jet. Designed by internationally acclaimed Singapore-based SCDA Architects, the resort, declared the “most heavenly hideaway” by Tatler magazine in 2013, is one of Indonesia’s best kept secrets—perfectly situated on the southwest coast’s dramatic black diamond beach and surrounded by the transporting beauty of the region’s UNESCO world-heritage-protected rice fields.
Exclusively for the Crazy Rich Collection, Alila Villas Soori has created what is quite possibly the world’s most luxurious spa experience centered around the elemental motif of the color black—the “96 Hours Blackout.” The journey begins with a VIP welcome at Denpasar International Airport and a private helicopter to take you straight to the secluded resort. Your home for the next four days will be the Soori Residence, an exquisitely designed five-bedroom villa set amidst artfully landscaped gardens, open-air pavilions, tranquil terraces, and an infinity pool framed by panoramic ocean views. Here the real pampering begins, as you discover the bliss of pure relaxation while two personal butlers and two housekeepers dedicate themselves to taking care of your every whim. Over the next 96 hours, you are eased into sixteen decadent and transformative spa treatments, including “Black Sweetness,” a soothing steam bath and skin treatment of honey mixed with black pearl powder, “Stars Unfold,” a relaxing bedtime warm stone massage under the stars, and “Black Reflection,” a rejuvenating therapeutic massage involving two masseuses working in perfect balance and harmony.
In between these appointments, you will enjoy personalized excursions with gourmet picnic lunches at staggeringly gorgeous sites, and mouthwateringly delectable dinners on a moonlit private beach—all prepared by the resort’s celebrated chef Fernando Trump. This once-in-a-lifetime retreat culminates in the “Royalty Revamp,” a sybaritic day of beauty where you are primped and styled to perfection, dressed in your new custom-tailored set of traditional Balinese garments, and treated to the splendors of a Balinese royal banquet. After the indulgence of the “96 Hours Blackout,” you will be recharged, renewed, and content in the knowledge that even Bali’s royal family never had it this good.
