We provide volcanic ash from Mt. Agung and heat it to 40 degrees centigrade. You lay immersed in this mud for about 15 minutes, and then our attendant washes all the mud from your body. You then have a one hour massageRead more...
I really enjoyed and needed this great week at Ubud Sari. I did the "Healing Week" and was suprised at how you could cope with the fasting with the fantastic juices.
Thanks to the other reviews I was prepared about the "counsellor" not being a health professional and I was lucky enough to get a "Zen" cottage. It was beautiful, quiet and very relaxing. The staff were very supportive and helpful and changing anything on the program was easy, you just have to ask.
I can understand people being disappointed if they don't get the Zen Villa ( I would be) and one of the other guests' rooms did get bed bugs, however they were immediately moved and the rooms treated. It does seem to be a recurring comment. I didn't have them.
The massages did have different levels of skill and different techniques. I loved the deep tissue and the detox wrap so I just asked to change. The staff were great.
Make sure you bring good walking and hiking shoes (especially if you are going to attempt the volcano hike). They will get muddy!
I had a great time, really needed the time out, but you can hit the shops/markets which are within walking distance.
