I chose Puri Santi based on the reviews here. We were staying at a hotel in Mangga Besar. !PRO TIP: If you're staying in central Jakarta, allow 1-2 hours to get here. It takes approximately an hour without traffic to reach this place. Puri Santi is in a residential area and your cabbie might now know where it is. Go slow and keep asking for directions!
When we arrived we were very excited. This place is beautiful! The staff had tailored everything according to my email. I arrived an hour late due to travelling time so I couldn't do a few of the sessions I'd booked. There was no fuss.
We had a couples room to ourselves. I did a hot stone massage for 1.5 hours, a natural facial and a hair cream bath. Everything was wonderful. It started raining cats and dogs and the downpour was so torrential, it really lent to the relaxation.
After the massage and facial, we were ushered downstairs to do our hair cream bath facing the beautiful garden. I felt a little awkward because there were other customers of both sexes getting mani pedis. We were in sarongs and pretty much naked otherwise.
They served a delicious tea that tasted like ginger snap concentrate, a biscuit, and because it was my birthday celebration, a fruit platter with a birthday wish. My only beef is that after the hair treatment, they didn't exactly blow dry my hair well. It was just a quick air dry and my hair was still a little damp and not styled.
I loved this session, it was the highlight of my trip.
If you're looking to relax and have a day to kill, you really must try it. Overall, it cost me close to nothing for 4 hours worth of luxury.
