psychotherapist and medical-grade facial rooms are.
At the top of the staircase, hand-beaten, copper lights hang
from the soaring A-framed roof, with glass windows that
concertina open to gardens that drip with bougainvillea.
“I want people to walk in and feel like they are in their own
lounge room, even though we are a medical clinic. Whether they
are here for an hour or a day it was essential to feel like a place they
could feel like home,” Deborah said.
Every room looks out to a garden, be it a vertical garden wall, or
a garden with red-trucked palm trees. Modern design meets green
a key play on ethos with both technique and nature irrigated
throughout the services available.
“The white leather Charles Eames chairs, in the vitamin
infusion room, were a must have,” Deborah said. “A nd the framed
quotes and collages placed on the dusty coloured walls infuse a
calm and introspective au ra.”
The coffee table carries the theme of the lotus, with the same
petal shaped marble as the floor, in a combination of marble that
was used through the centre in the bathrooms, flooring and side
tables. It’s a marble lovers fantasy – emblematic of the brand and
even fu rther reinforcement of the Eden logo.
“The logo came out of the mud like the lotus flower,” Deborah
explained. “The snake, entwined around the stem of the lotus
flower. It’s our marriage of health and beauty. The spirituality is
inextricably part of why we are all here in Bali, and what keeps us
here. It’s the magic of Bali that makes this all possible.”

Eden Eden Life Centres brings
a new level of holistic
wellness to Bali.
here’s no doubt the wellness and medical tourism
industry is booming and Eden is a prime example
elevating the typical Bali day spa aesthetic
and providing a haven for a total body and mind
approach to wellness. At Eden you’ve reached
that secret garden.
Australians Deborah Vanderhoek and Duncan A ngus are at the
forefront of this emerging global trend in downtown Seminyak
with the opening of their first lifestyle centre at the end of 2017.
It’s a Holistic, anti-ageing health clinic focusing on wellness and
self-improvement and every client journey is different.
Designed by J.R Kraal, Eden Life Centres is a peaceful sanctuary
in the centre of ultra-busy Seminyak shopping strip and with Bali
chosen as the inaugural site for its progressive, eclectic and artistic
blend of expats, tourists and locals – Deborah and Duncan feel
they have something for the Bali visitor who only wants the best.
“People not only want to live longer, they want to live better,”
said Simone Rogers, General Manager, Eden Life Centres. No doubt
living better comes from the way you feel, instantly being greeted,
welcomed and given time and care to relax and unwind as soon as
they enter the doors – Eden clients are more than half way there.
Deborah said the cool, clean lu xurious feel of Eden Life Centres
was designed to help people feel welcome, comfortable and safe.
On arrival, you pass through a garden wall to the Moroccan-
themed, tiled, sunken water fountain, splashes of pink and green
velvet are mixed with a resort like outdoor vibe – think relaxed
linen meets carrara marble.
A cane swing sits against the wall, between the sandstone
Ganesha (the elephant-headed Hindu God of success) and the
perennially blooming white flowering tree.
Creamy hand-cut, marble, lotus-shaped floor tiles bleed
into the rich, emerald green cash desk with the logo embossed into
it and the framed words ‘Self-Love’ above it.
But the truly breathtaking, ‘pièce de résistance’ has to be
the four-metre, square, stainless steel, hand-beaten and burnt
to a rose shade fountain, that trickles with water and is placed
between the vertical gardens and the widespread frangipani tree.
“I want Eden to be a sanctuary - a safe place, inviting, and
using the harmony of nature in every room. I wanted it to feel
authentically Bali - unmistakably so,” Deborah said.
The magic of the centre is further enhanced by its second
level features. “I had always longed for a ‘Gone with the
Wind’ staircase - I finally got it,” she said, laughing. “It’s
beautiful.” This grand staircase winds its way up to the
