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.

Jetlag is a drag - the best way I have found to get over it in a hurry is to make an appointment, before getting on your flight, and go straight to Tamarind Spa your first day in Ubud. Let the essence of why you are here soak in and be pampered in the nicest way. Enjoy your welcome tea,... More

Liked it so much I went back again, lovely clean facilities and warm, welcoming staff who seem genuinely interested in providing great service. For me, this has become my 'go-to' place for serious relaxation time.

I recently went with my friend to Tamarind Spa for a Balinese massage and reflexology massage. We had a wonderful experience at Murni's from the moment we entered the complex. They were very friendly and immediately upon arrival, they brought us wet towels and some ginger tea. Then they soaked our feet in some water with flowers. Both the Balinese... More

I had a hard day the day before from walking & shopping, and the heat was too much for me. The next morning I had this most wonderful massage by Eva who was so nice and gentle.

The whole spa experience was great. It's a little more pricey than some other spas, but worth the spa experience. They greeted us with a cool drink an foot bath prior to our treatments. We had the massage followed by a body scrub and bath. Very soothing and peaceful after being on the hectic streets of Bali. The gardens are... More

We are very happy that the whole spa experience was great - very soothing and peaceful - it's very important to have a spa in a peaceful environment and not directly on a noisy, main road. We're also happy that your husband enjoyed his time in the gardens and on the wifi. I hope you both can come back again.... More

I didn't think Murni could improve her spa as the staff have always been so sincerely welcoming and the treatments, especially the four-handed massages - so good. However, I believe this time the four-handed massages were perfection, as both of the girl's had exactly the same pressure and their timing was impeccable. The feedback from both new and repeat participants... More
