“Overpriced”
Review of Tamara Spa

Tamara Spa

Attraction details
Reviewed December 31, 2013

Our driver recommended this place. It is totally overpriced even after we negotiated the price. We paid $40aud for 2x 1 hour massages.

There are much better places in Bali.

We went to this spa as recommended by our taxi driver. My partner and I paid a total of US$70 for a one and a half hour balinese massage. We were expecting that for that price we would experience a high quality service but unfortunately they didnt deliver. Everytime I go home to the Philippines from the US I make sure that I treat myself to a high end spa. Ive been to some of them with in Metro Manila and Tamara spa is nothing compared to those, and at a much cheaper price. The massage room looks old and not clean. Also airconditioning is very poor it wasnt relaxing at all as I felt warm and sweaty. The massage itself, i felt, was ok, but I definitely had better. My partner wasnt satisfied at all with the massage. His masseuse, for some reason, kept on stopping the massage session as she had to go outside. She did it twice and one time she was away for almost 5 minutes after which a new masseuse came in with out no explanation as to why that happened. Also the massage was supposed to be for one and a half hours but they stopped at one hour and 5 minutes. They prepared some type of balinese bath after to wash off the oil that they used but even after taking a bath i felt like I wanted to go back to the hotel right away and shower. This is such a total rip off, we felt so robbed after.Its a tourist trap, don't go to this spa. We should have just gone to our spa in the hotel. The only thing I like is that they provide drop off to your hotel. But still, this is totally not worth it!!

The bed was uncomfortable, not relaxing at all, especially when lying on prone position.

The massage was terrible, couldn't feel the pressure point, it was more like "touch and go" feeling.

Itchiness all over body once massage oil is applied.And I paid 300IDR for this! Not recommended.

Expensive, dirty. I'm embarrassed to say I went there. The woman even burped during my 45 minute (paid 20usd for 1hour) massage... Ughhh!
