Ubud certainly is paradise and the beauty therapy here is heaven! For the last two days Neeni and I have been visiting the divine Bali Botanica Spa. Located on Jalan Raya Sanggingan it is only minutes from the centre of Ubud. They provide free pick-up from your hotel which is very handy too.
Yesterday we had a famous Javan Mandi treatment called Mandi Lalur. The treatment begins with a 65 minute herbal massage followed by an exfoliant treatment and then relaxing floral bath. It was only Rp. 200,000 ($19 AUD) so very reasonably priced for two hours of bliss. Today we had a beautiful facial and hand spa treatment which was also absolutely heavenly.
All the rooms overlook the lush, jungle valley and are simply and tastefully decorated. The staff are so sweet and professional. Your treatment finishes with a delicious ginger tea…mmm…I could get very used to this!
You can look them up at http://www.balibotanica.com. They are open 7 days a week from 9am till 9pm.
