Traditional Balinese massages are an awesome way to relax while you’re on your holiday in Bali. Ubud is one of the best areas to seek out holistic treatments from a spa, too, because it’s considered to be the “spiritual heart” of the country, and it attracts those in need of wellness and care.
But where do you go for a relaxing massage or full body treatments in Ubud? Well, our team went out to test the incredible number of spas in Ubud, and these are the ones they recommend.
Our Best 29 Spas In Ubud
Jaens Spa Ubud
Jaens Spa is one of the most popular spas in Ubud, and rightly so. It’s also in the centre of Ubud Town, which makes it very easy to find.
The decor at Jaens Spa offers a strong focus on natural healing, including bamboo, stone, water and some beautiful local plants.
You will spend some time talking with a therapist at Jaens Spa to ensure they understand your needs and so that they can walk you through the treatments on offer.
It’s a surprisingly affordable treat, too, and the spa package on offer is very good value, indeed.

The spa experience is pure bliss and involves spending time on their 5-star resort, which is built with eco-friendliness in mind.

Avani Spa @ Kaamala Resort Ubud
The clifftop views from this spa in Ubud are quite incredible, and you’re going to love spending some time here.
It’s a luxury spa with a holistic approach to treating all your spiritual and physical needs.
We like that they start each treatment at this holistic spa with a singing bowl that helps to relax you before they even begin with the traditional Balinese treatments.
The four-hand massage here is amazing!

Taksu Wellness Centre
Taksu is in central Ubud, but you’d struggle to know it when you step into the jungle-like atmosphere of this luxury spa.
Start with a relaxing flower bath and then go with the Royal Mandi Lurlur, which is a full-body care routine.
They start with some traditional Balinese massage and then go on to a local exfoliating recipe for your skin, and they round things off with a yoghurt mask and the second of two flower baths!
Where Is It? Jl. Goutama Sel., Ubud, Kecamatan Ubud, Kabupaten Gianyar, Bali 80571, Indonesia
This lovely wellness centre on the banks of the Ayung River has an excellent set of spa package offerings, and many say it’s the best spa in Ubud if you want healing sessions.
All the spa packages are based on traditional Balinese practices, and they begin with massage, incorporate exfoliating scrubs and usually end with flower baths.
This is the way that it should be: utterly relaxing.
Where Is It? Mambal, Abiansemal, Badung Regency, Bali 80352, Indonesia
Ubud Traditional Spa
The Ubud Traditional Spa is where we recommend people go if they’ve never been to a spa before.
That’s because the Ubud Traditional Spa is all about delivering a Balinese experience as well as massages and spa packages.
It’s a family-run place with a real focus on service. This spa will collect you from your hotel, spend some time learning about your needs, help you choose your massage oil and more.
They also offer a “rice farmer” massage, which is the ideal choice for people who like a firmer touch when they’re getting massaged.
The pre-massage foot scrub is fantastic, and everyone has a great time at Ubud Traditional Spa.

This spa in Ubud is the brainchild of Ketut Jasi, one of the most famous Balinese massage therapists and who’s spa experience always incorporates a natural touch.
There’s a lot of emphasis at this spa on treatments that are based around local plants, which are all made in-house.
If you don’t want to spend time in the treatment rooms, you can always take a workshop on natural Balinese medicine at Cantika Zest!
The setting is a little dated in its design, but given that the prices are very low, we don’t mind that.

If you want soothing massages, great facial treatments, highly trained therapists, and you want it cheap? You want Putri Spa.
The treatment rooms here are clean and small, and you will be given local fruits and teas before the treatment starts.
It can get quite busy, though, and sometimes it’s possible to hear other customers in conversation with their therapist during a spa visit.
That’s the only downside of saving money by visiting Putri, though.

Akoya Spa @ Viceroy Bali
This glorious spa at the posh Viceroy Bali resort is the kind of place that you want to spend a whole day at.
We loved their reflexology sessions here and found the treatments to be very good value for money, considering the place they’re delivered in.
However, they are super popular, and it can be hard to secure a booking.

The Sacred River Spa
You know what you’re getting at the Four Seasons Bali, and you know you’re not getting it without paying a small fortune for it.
This is one of the best wellness destinations in the whole world (the hotel was voted the world’s best back in 2018), and it has the most luxurious spa in Bali by a mile.
Their therapists go beyond massage treatments and facials and seek to bring out the inner fire that burns in each of us.
When you leave The Sacred River Spa, you will positively glow with energy.
We absolutely loved the healing Chakra Ceremony we took part in, and the chance to sleep it off in the bamboo shala afterwards was deeply appreciated, too.
This isn’t an everyday spa for most people, but the steep price tag is oh, so worth it.

3 Point Spa
This spa is all about helping you to find yourself by balancing your mind, body and soul!
They are very good at ensuring their guests leave feeling relaxed and blissed out.
We can recommend some of their more unusual treatment options, like the Hawaiin Lomi-Lomi and the Shiatsu massage, both of which aren’t commonly available at spas in Bali.

Their Abhing Spa has everything that you need to get amazing spa treatments, and they even have a semi-open-air jacuzzi for you to enjoy.
In addition to their treatments, this spa also offers classes in yoga and meditation, which can lead to long-term benefits when combatting the stresses of modern life.

We love their pleasant outdoor shower facilities, which make you feel like you’re really communing with nature at this spa.
They also offer some of the best beauty treatments that we’ve encountered in spas in Bali. We recommend trying the Abyan Body Wrap, as it’s lovely.
Please Note: As we went to press, this resort complex was temporarily closed for refurbishment. They can be reached by phone on +62 361 849 3050, and you should call before travelling there to see if they have reopened.
Where Is It? C7R7+C6Q, Lodtunduh, Ubud, Gianyar Regency, Bali 80571, Indonesia
This simple local spa won’t set you back a fortune but will leave you just as relaxed as many of the more expensive spas in Ubud will.
They have plenty of facilities, though, and the massage therapists are very well-trained.
Expectant mums must try the pregnancy massage here and we can’t get enough of the traditional Javanese Lulur!
Where Is It? Kaje, Jl. Kajeng No.37, Ubud, Kecamatan Ubud, Kabupaten Gianyar, Bali 80571, Indonesia
Yeh Pulu Spa
This spa is a locally owned and operated business, and the prices here are incredible value for money. If you have a big group that you want to treat to a massage, you might head to Yeh Pulu Spa.
The facilities here are basic, but the treatments are very good, and the staff is both knowledgeable and attentive.
We were very impressed with their longer package offerings, in particular, which offered hours of pampering for a very low price.

The Ubud Village Resort & Spa
This lovely spa set in the lush Ubud countryside is one of our favourites nestled among the coconut groves and rice paddies this resort positively oozes calm.
However, if you want to use the spa at this resort, you will need to be a guest for a night, too.
Their offerings are among the most intimate and soothing that we’ve tried anywhere in Bali.

Chapung Se Bali Resort & Spa (formerly Sabai Spa)
This spa was called Sabai Spa, but now it’s simply the Chapung Se Bali Spa, and it’s great. We should note that guests of the resort get priority here, so it’s important to book in advance and not just turn up on the day.
All the products used here are natural and local and are aimed at balancing the body and soul to produce an almost euphoric sense of relaxation.
Try their signature massage, the Sabai Massage and you’ll be feeling the bliss for days afterwards.

The Purist Villas Spa
This villa complex in the heart of Ubud is known for providing its guests with the ultimate spiritual wellness journeys.
All of the products here are made using Ayurvedic principles and using locally sourced all-natural ingredients.
As you’d expect from an expensive resort, the therapists here are all trained in the latest techniques and will happily respond to any special requests you may have.
They also offer on-site yoga and meditation classes if you want to be able to relax yourself at will.

Warwick Ibah Luxury Resort & Spa
This beautiful spa has an almost colonial aspect to the serene treatment facilities, and it’s a great place to unwind. It’s what Bali is all about.
Their priority is to provide services to their guests, and it can often be hard to make an appointment at this spa if you’re not in the resort.
However, it’s worth booking into the resort and then opting for one of their world-class 5-day packages if you want to feel all stress leave your body for the longest time!

Sang Spa & Yoga Centre
Sang Spa is very popular locally, and it offers a fusion of traditional Balinese treatments and Thai ones.
Everything starts with their Tibetan Singing Bowl process and then proceeds on to Seven Chakra Healing before they roll out the incredible intuitive flow massage!
If you want a full body and mental detox, this is a great place for it. And the prices are very reasonable too.

This Japanese-style spa does things a little differently from the other spas in town.
We love their bean bag lounge, where you can chill out and sip tea after a long massage. Sometimes, the aftercare is as important as the massage itself.
We recommend the 120-minute full-body massage treatment here. It’s so rejuvenating!

Also known as Aman Spa, this lovely place is in the Amandari Healt Roest, and they’re all about Indonesian traditional treatments.
Try their Balinese Melaka Purification Ceremony for something really special, or opt for a volcanic clay wrap (something that most visitors are never going to be able to try at home).
You will come out of this spa feeling like a new person! We were almost walking on air after our trip to this elegant spa.

This wellness centre specializes in bespoke treatments entirely tailored to the visitor.
Their luxury Manis Kelepon package, which begins with a full-body palm sugar scrub, is one of our favourites.
One nice touch is that each treatment room here is themed around a different local flower. The colours and motifs are all tailored to the flowers.

Hot Stone Club Ubud
If you want a hot stone massage in Ubud, then head straight to the Hot Stone Club.
Their name says it all, really. They do one thing better than everywhere else, and it involves heat, stones and your relaxed bliss.
Of course, this isn’t a traditional Balinese treatment, but we don’t think that matters very much when you’re happy and chilled out.

How Much Is A Massage At Ubud?
It really depends on where you go and what treatment you want. You can get a traditional Balinese massage for as little as 70,000 IDR in Ubud if you’re not fussy about the environment it’s delivered.
But spa packages and spa treatments may cost many times more, and some of the top spas may charge 50-60 times as much as a basic massage.
What Is Ubud Known For?
Ubud is considered to be the spiritual heart of Bali, and thus, it attracts a lot of people looking for wellness treatments, spiritual nourishment, yoga and spa treatments too.
It’s a bit cooler and cheaper than some other areas of Bali, and it has become increasingly popular with visitors over the last few years.
What Is A Full Body Massage In Bali?
Balinese massage is a full-body, deep-tissue form of massage that combines stretching, acupressure, aromatherapy massage and reflexology to help move blood and oxygen around the body.
Do You Wear Clothes For A Balinese Massage?
No, in order to carry out deep tissue massage techniques, the masseuse will need access to your skin. Most people will remove all (or nearly all) of their clothing for a Balinese massage.
Can You Get A Hot Stone Massage In Ubud?
Yes, though hot stone massage is not a traditional Balinese massage treatment, it has become increasingly popular with visitors, and many spas offer this treatment in Ubud.
