Bali Botanica Day Spa [Ubud] Review

Who doesn’t enjoy a spa day?  We have been fortunate to visit the Bali Botanica Day Spa several times during our trips to Bali. In this article, we share our experiences of the Bali Botanica Day Spa (including photos) and the various treatments we have enjoyed.

Bali Botanica Day Spa Ubud

The Bali Botanica Day Spa was opened in 2006 and offers guests the ultimate pampering experience. While there are various pamper options to enjoy at Bali Botanicals our favourite is the 6.5 hour relaxing Ayurvedic spa day.

The spa itself is situated in lush gardens and within large, airy colonial style buildings.

The Bali Botanica Day Spa is located at Jalan Sanggingan on the outskirts of Ubud. Ubud itself is a great base from which to explore Bali (there are numerous day trip options) and is known for its crafts, rice paddies, temples and traditional dance. It is our favourite area to stay when we are in Bali with excellent accommodation options for all budgets.

The spa is open daily from 9 am to 9 pm.

Transfer to the spa was around 10 minutes from our accommodation at the Ubud Village Resort.  

We recommend arriving around 15 minutes before your booked appointment time to give you time to relax before your treatment starts. You are asked to fill in a brief spa questionnaire with relevant questions relating to the spa treatment you have booked.  This includes whether you prefer a hard or soft massage pressure.

A delicious drink is also offered on your arrival.

Before your spa treatment begins you are requested to take a shower for hygiene purposes.

While we don’t recommend taking valuables with you lockers are provided for visitors wishing to store their belongings.

This was the package we booked during two separate visits to Bali Botanica. On both occasions, we were very impressed with the whole day. 

Starting at 9 am the day begins with 2.5 hours of Ayurvedic massage (oil massage), a full body scrub (of your choice – I had green tea), a flower bath and then a break for a delicious lunch at a nearby location. 

This is followed by a facial and a hair cream bath in the afternoon. All of which is amazing and highly recommended!

This was one of the packages we took on our last visit and thoroughly enjoyed the experience. You spend the visit together and share in the wonderful pampering experience.

This package begins with a Balinese massage followed by a full-body exfoliation, flower bath, and foot spa and takes place in a beautiful area of the spa overlooking the lush jungle. 

The day ends with a traditional Indonesian dinner.

It was a wonderful experience from beginning to end!

Lunch at Bali Botanica

This begins at 10 am with a wonderful Balinese tension-relieving massage before moving on to an Ayurvedic Shirodara treatment (a treatment used by Indian yogis to enhance self-awareness), a full body exfoliation and then a relaxing flower wrap and ending with an Indonesian lunch.

Five hours of total holistic healing begin at 11 am with a four-handed Ayurvedic massage with 2 therapists followed by a full body exfoliation and a relaxing flower bath.

After lunch, there is a facial and a hair cream bath or a pedicure.

This is 3.5 hours of Ayurvedic massage experience during which warm herbal oil is dripped onto your Chakra points followed by a serene massage, full body exfoliation and flower bath.

Cat chilling out at Bali Botanica

We thoroughly enjoyed our day spa experiences (6.5 hours) and the afternoon romantic escape for two (4 hours) at Bali Botanica. 

We found the spa treatments excellent and the staff very proficient and professional in their approach.  The traditional lunch meal was perfect too with just the right amounts to eat and drink before returning to the delights of the spa in the afternoon.

We simply cannot wait to visit again.
