The Cyber Crime Division of the Bali Police has closed a spa operating in Denpasar under suspicion of operating as a place of prostitution.

Balipost.com reports that the Praja Spa on Jalan Tukad Unda VIII, Panjer, South Denpasar was raided on Wednesday, March 8, 2017, and a number of customers, therapists, and the spa’s management were taken into custody.

Balidiscovery.com first carried news of the Praja Spa’s operations in June of 2016, quoting coverage of alleged prostitution from Radar Bali.

After providing counseling and guidance to the young women employed at the spa, they therapist were returned to their home villages and advised to seek new lines of work. Police are holding three men, named as owners and marketing staff at the Praja Spa.

The Spa, according to police, has an average daily turnover of between Rp. 15 and Rp 20 million.

Praja Spa
marketed itself via social media listings on Facebook under accounts listed as Dewa Komang Praja and Praja Spa. When police became aware of the Facebook postings, they investigated further before launching a raid on the business.

The Wednesday afternoon raid on the Praja Spa saw 24 people taken into police custody, comprised of 2 owners, 1 marketing staff, 1 cashier, 2 customers and 18 therapists.

The business has been in operation for the past two years.

Police allege that the spa offered “plus plus” and “body to body” spa services with prices ranging from Rp. 550,000 to Rp. 650,000 per treatments. “Three-some” spa treatments were available from Rp. 1.1 million.

Spa therapists were reported to earn between Rp. 20 – 30 million per month.

The owners and management of the spa face prosecution under the 2008 law on pornography and cyber-crime carrying a maximum punishment of 12 years in prison.
