Owner description: Like most people Murni gets stressed, so she built a spa.She called it Tamarind Spa at Murni's Houses as it sits elegantly under a tamarind tree in a private, peaceful Balinese building in the charming, tranquil gardens of Murni's Houses. Murni has impeccable fine arts credentials and is passionate about the beauty of Balinese art. You will delight in every room and enjoy Murni's famous collection of Balinese and Asian works of art.She designed the spa around a unique concept, creating not just a relaxing healthy, healing experience but also an artistic experience.Tamarind Spa welcomes everyone with exquisite flowers, fountains, tranquil surroundings, soothing aromas and calming music, all served with a generous portion of Balinese hospitality. De-stress, tone up, heal aches and pains or simply, just pamper yourself. We are 5 minutes walk from the center of Ubud. You just go up the ramp opposite Pura Dalem on the main street of Ubud – left at the top and 2nd gate on the right. Please email for the Spa menu. There are a number of spa packages on the web site.

Overall a good massage but definitely overpriced for Ubud. It costs almost 2 times more over here as compared with any other massage in high street Ubud not counting massages in hotels.

Thank you for visiting us and I am glad that you had a good massage. I am surprised at your comments because I have checked your comments filled in after your massage. You said that the value was good and everything else was excellent and your wife - who is pregnant - said that everything, including the value, was excellent.... More

The Tamarind Spa was a wonderful part of our month in Ubud over Christmas 2014. The setting is the peaceful gardens of Murni's Houses, an easy five minute stroll from central Ubud. The staff are professionally trained, and the cleanliness and quality of the consumables are above reproach. My wife, our niece and a close Australian friend spent hours experiencing... More

Tamarind Spa is in the compound of Murni's Houses, so it couldn't get any easier than stepping off the veranda of the cozy two bedroom house I had nestled into and walk a few steps across the lushly landscaped courtyard to get a restorative, aromatic massage that was charged to my room. I took the bait and enjoyed an hour... More

Went there with my sister. I did 60mins balinese massage with therapist Eva (thanks a lot my dear!) and my sister did facial. We're happy with their services and hospitality. Sure we will be back! Note : the access road bit steep, so doing some massage after walking there is really worthed :)

I visited Murni's Spa 2 years ago and must say it is the best spa day I have ever had. I did the Volcano Sunrise trek followed by an all day package with lunch included. I could not fault one bit of the whole experience. Sunrise on the volcano will stay with me forever as will the warmth and friendliness... More

As always, a trip to Murni's Tamarind Spa is a delight. My aromatherapy massage by Ketut was firm enough to smooth out the tight muscles but relaxing at the same time. The salt scrub and flower bath, a treat. Lastly the luxurious facial completed my morning. Heavenly Bliss!

I had a very relaxing manicure here today. There was no problem getting an appointment as a walk-in and the therapists were friendly and professional. The only negative is that they use Revlon nail polish, which (in my experience) tends to go on too thickly and chips easily. My polish did not even last the afternoon. Perhaps take your own,...

Thank you for recommending us and I'm glad that you had a very relaxing time. In our experience, and our staff who use the same polish themselves, it lasts at least 2 or 3 weeks, sometimes longer, so please come back and we will be very happy to redo them for you. More
