There is a growing worldwide demand for Bali trained spa therapists.

Quoted by, a spokesman from the Bali Manpower Department, said, “Indeed, every year the request for spa therapists, especially from Bali Spas, increases." Continuing, he explained that the people of Bali are also increasingly eager to accept positions abroad working in four and five star spas or cruise ships.

Data from the Manpower Department shows that 177 Bali residents traveled abroad in 2010 to work as spa therapists. In 2012 that number grew to 1,697 workers.

Interim figures through the end of May have counted 686 spa workers leaving Bali for posts overseas thus far in 2012.

The 2,560 Bali residents leaving for spa positions from 2010 until May 2012 are now working in 49 countries. The U.A.E., Russia, Turkey and France rank among the most popular destinations for spa assignments for Balinese working abroad.

Officials predict that by the end of 2012 the number of spa positions available to Balinese workers will surpass 4,000 – a number that will overwhelm the ability of local spa companies to fill those vacancies.

In order to supervise the exodus of Balinese seeking spa positions abroad, the Manpower Department has established an Association for the Placement and Protection of Indonesian Spa Workers with an initial membership of 42 companies and organizations.

The government has helped form the new Association in order to register and monitor all Balinese residents accepting overseas spa positions.
