This is a spa for spa lovers. We rated it as the highlight of our stay in Ubud. Highly trained professionals in a gorgeous relaxing setting. Nothing was too much trouble. We went several times and enjoyed it every time. Do yourself a favour and go. You won't regret it. They have excellent value packages.

Friends came back raving about this place so we just had to go. Highly recommended. Easily the best spa experience we've ever had - and you can buy their organic products too! Such a treat and not expensive.

We are spa junkies and this place gets it right perfectly from beginning to end. Really enjoyed our sessions there. It's head and shoulders above the other spas in Ubud. They are trained professionals here, which, of course, is not always the case in many other places. Can't recommend it highly enough. Can't wait to go back!

Wanted to try Taku spa but was fully booked. So we unwillingly booked Tamarind, since we badly need a massage after a terrible one we had the day before, and we were scheduled to be on flight back home with time to spare. Spa was set in a very nice cottage style location, flowing with local flavor. The small courtyard... More

My Mum and I went to Tamarind Spa today and had very different experiences with our 2 hour Balinese massages. My massage was blissful - good firm pressure, skilful strokes and a lovely experience. My Mum's massage was unfortunately not so good - a seemingly inexperienced therapist with significant amount of time spent on her calves (not a problem area... More

We stumbled on this spa after having a terrific meal at Murni's Warung (highly recommend!). We got 60 minute reflexology, which was fabulous - sitting outside in such a beautiful, tranquil place. We came back the next day for 90 minute balinese massage. My massage was excellent - she really knew what she was doing. (By the way - she... More

We both had a 60 minute balinese massage. Welcoming staff, clean facilities. The massage itself was acceptable but nothing memorable; and for my part, it probably should have been somewhat gentler. Having not had a Balinese massage before, I did find it slightly (albeit not uncomfortably) rough, but was still surprised to find a large bruise on my right arm... More

Thank you for visiting us. I see that you've never had a Balinese massage before. It's fine and a wonderful experience for most people as you can see from all our reviews. I recommend next time that you try a Relaxing or Swedish massage, which may suit you better. Murni More
