Tree Belgian friends, Christian Lechien, architect, Dominique Pissoort, advertising consultant, and Julie Thonnard, dive instructor, fell in love with Gili Air and decided to create a small holiday village. 10 contemporary luxury villas – balinese conception, Each room offers the same comfort: one or two bedroom villas with terrace, swimming pool, kitchenette and office space, comfortable sunbeds, lovely coconut garden. Particular care to the quality of the beddings, the home stylist Valérie Barkowski has added her touch of originality.
Yoga Shala: Slow Spa


Designed by the architect Christian Lechien, the spa at Slow Villas adds a wellness appetite to the villa complex, which is essentially designed for you to recharge and fully relax: three massage rooms, a bath for relaxation and a pilates/yoga studio. The SlowSpa’s architecture is inspired by the round curves of the island, making you think of a bamboo cathedral. The central window adds air and light to the whole ensemble with gentle curves. The peaceful feeling and the silence are supporting the architecture that’s built around the natural elements, thus recalling Slow’s philosophy. The treatments: massages, facials, treatments for hands and feet, and therapy through movements, respond to our belief at Slow in relation to wellness. For SlowSpa’s signature treatments we use products that are natural and alive, especially fresh aloe vera cultivated on-site.
