MesaStila Wellness Retreats

Luxury Wellness Retreats and Holistic Health Breaks in Java
Luxury Wellness Retreats are all about spending a little time out of the daily grind to pamper yourself with some spa treatments and restore balance to a weary body and soul. You’re not willing to do much soul searching, you simply want to take life down a notch or two in beautiful natural surroundings. Of course, in turn you can inspire a healthier path in life!
MesaStila (formerly Losari Coffee Plantation) wellness retreats allow you to be pampered Hammam style. If you adore a steam room, you’ll love the signature ‘Truly Turkish’ Hammam treatments, rose-infused oil massages and scalp therapies. Spa treatments mix modern practices with ancient Javanese rituals such as the cooling Jade facial.We came out of the Hammam with our skin feeling baby soft and our senses truly soothed.
When you’re feeling stuck in a rut, wellness retreats are a great way of giving your body and soul the opportunity to relax and unwind, creating the space to reconnect with the self. Most of our lives are so busy, we don’t give ourselves time to simply stop and be kind to yourself.
Nestled in the heart of Central Java, the coffee plantation dates back to 1828 when the Dutch plantation owner lived in what now is a reception area. Gabriella Teggia, found the plantation and spent a decade of her life passionately sourcing antique Javanese nobleman’s residences and their interiors to create Losari Coffee Plantation. Set on 22 hectares of thick bamboo jungle, each of the 22 Joglo style villas are unique. The five bedroom complex Bellavista evens boast an original Sultan’s palace!
Why is it a Sanctuary
The rich Javanese plantation history and expansive grassy lawns with lush bamboo thickets provoke an atmosphere of a long forgotten colonial style elegance, where time seems to slow down. Organic, tasty cuisine, decent basic Hatha yoga classes and an enticing spa menu, qualify MesaStila as a wellness sanctuary. But it’s the surrounding coffee plantation tours and the Turkish hammam treatments that set this apart as a luxury escape.
MestaStila De-Stress package focuses on pampering spa services which include a rose-infused oil massage, deeply calming scalp therapy and soothing Jade facial enhanced by fragrant herbs and calming oils. A daily Hammam steam bath in the early evening leaves you feeling clean and renewed. Extensions to 7 nights include a Tui Na Facial and a Harmonic healing session.
‘Java Red’ is a beautiful open fronted Joglo style restaurant which serves an appetizing selection of Asian and Western dishes which make superb use of local organic produce. There’s a good choice of meat, fish and vegetarian dishes and presentation is artistic. There’s also an extensive tea menu (maybe for the guests like me who feel bad that they don’t like coffee on a coffee plantation!)
Who is it for
Those who want to combine a relaxing stay with a bit of pampering and culture. You don't have to dig deep to do this wellness program. Join some activities, eat great healthy dishes, amble about on the coffee plantation tour and visit Borobudur if you're up for a day out. Oh and spend as much time in the spa as you can!
