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.

We 4 people went there on Apr 10 afternoon and was blown away with their body scrubs, hot stone treatments, as well as balinese massages. Price is very fine (~500-550k for a 90-120min treatment) and is less than half of a top "healing spa" we stayed with. We immediately booked another session on the following day and were blown away...

I'm delighted that you loved Tamarind Spa so much and it's wonderful to hear that you have tried many SPAs in Southeast Asia and this is definitely one of the best. I'm also happy that the price was reasonable - we keep it as low as we can consistent with top quality, experienced therapists, good products and hygiene. I just... More

The Tamarind Spa at Murni's was fantastic. The staff was excellent, the facilities impeccably clean, and the treatments as relaxing as one can get. The gems of this establishment however are Johnathan and Murni. I had gotten extremely sick (hospitalized) a few days before my scheduled package which included white water rafting. I was still too weak for the rafting... More

A beautiful Spa in a magnificent setting. So professional and a wonderful menu of services. Not only can you stay right there at Murni's cottages , which are so beautifully appointed with antiques and a true taste of Bali, but right there is the best Spa in Ubud. Who could ask for anything more. Paradise to perfection.

Three hours in all. The massage was amazing for me on many levels. I almost immediately drifted asleep and woke up only when asked to... More

My sister and I had excellent treatments with therapists who were very professional and knowledgeable for both massage and facial. What a delight to finish off a day of sightseeing and shopping with the 'magic hands' taking away all the tiredness. Energized on three separate days, the Tamarind Spa is perfect for Anho e in Ubud.
