A Spa for the Body and the Soul

One of the many things we wanted to do on our vacation was take advantage of the superior spa services Bali has to offer. We found this great spa in Ubud Called Bali Botanica. Apparently it's one of the best!

Along with the Ritz Carlton Spa, The Spa at Bulgari Hotels and Resort, Prana Spa and others, Bali Botanica Day Spa has been selected top ten and we are of course very proud! Here's what they say about us…

Bali Botanica Day Spa
Ideally located, serene and genuinely healing, this is a wonderful experience at a guilt-free price. Well trained, focused staff, empowered through yoga and meditation, administer outstanding therapies. Ayurvedic treatments are world-class, especially the Chakra-balancing warm oil massage for instant and lasting stillness!

We found this amazing package that we are booking! I think we'll be booking it the day after our wild adventures riding elephants and cycling through the rice patties. :)
Transportation from your hotel (in Ubud area) and a healthy juice upon arrival while your consultation with our representative.

First Treatment
*Ayurveda - Chakra Dhara Massage
In India, Ayurveda means '' The Science of Life ''. It is a holistic science that is more than five thousand years old and is believed to be the oldest healing therapy.
Ayurveda focuses on prevention, longevity and natural healing. It promotes circulation, increases flexibility and relieves pain and stiffness.

An important part of the Ayurvedic massage is called ''Chakra Dhara'', this consists of dripping approximately one liter of warm herbal oil on the chakras (key energy points of the body) in order to balance the energy flow and purify the body, mind and spirit.

Our therapist will skillfully treat your body with an array of repetitive and slow movements such as kneading, squeezing and rubbing. This will eliminate toxins and other impurities trapped inside you. After this treatment you will feel wonderful! This treatment last 2.5 hours

*Botanica Tropical Spa Lunch
A special three course light menu is prepared and served to our
guests at a near by restaurant. (Walking distance)
