What our students say

These are testimonials from recent clients, including those who were only with us for a day and those we had the pleasure to have as a student for 6 months.  Although each is uniquely written as students come from so many diverse backgrounds, they almost universally convey how much they have come to appreciate their trainers.

Small, personalized classes are one of the core reasons that Bali BISA is so popular with students with varying objectives, just for pure fun, kicking off an exciting career as a spa therapist, expanding their skill portfolio or gaining CIBTAC certification to enhance their career development.

Many say they’ll be back and unsurprisingly many do indeed return for more spa courses with us!  They keep up with fellow students, trainers and Bali BISA happenings on our Facebook page. Why not stop by and have a chat with our growing community of fantastic students?
