GARUDA INFLIGHT - OCTOBER 2003
Hot Air - Travel Notes
 
Prana Spa & Villas, Asia’s first Mogul Garuda Inflightinspired Spa complex opened in Seminyak, Bali on October 25th 2003. Conceived by visionary Australian artist and entrepreneur Jim Elliott, the multi-million dollar Prana is a real departure in both philo= sophy and design from the usual Asian Zen-type spa. 

Prana represents the most extravagant spa concept yet attempted in Asia and, as the first of its kind, is pioneering a totally new type of spa experience.  In a response to what he sees as the clinical, regime-like atmosphere of many of Asia’s spas Jim Elliott decided to challenge the concept of what a spa could be.  “I believe going to a spa should be both a mind and body altering experience. We are creating an event that appeals to all of the senses and envelops you from the moment you walk through the door. So in a way it is part theatre and part therapy. We combine this sensual experience with a full-range of professional spa and wellness treatments “, said Jim Elliott.
