At Taman Sari Royal Heritage Spa, traditional Indonesian holistic therapies enchant the senses and soothe frazzled minds. During the one-hour Balinese massage, powerful strokes of the palms, thumbs, and fingers migrate across the entire epidermis, only taking breaks to amuse clients by tracing hand turkeys. Bodies sink deeper into a state of bliss as the masseuse’s kneading motions reverberate through tissues, promoting circulation and breaking down stress deposits. Patrons sip on complimentary loose-leaf tea from 50 different regions or sample the spa’s Jamu, a potent blend of herbs culled from Indonesian rain forests. Additionally, clients can prolong their serenity by basking in the dry sauna or test out a new snorkel in the whirlpool and heated swimming pool free of charge.
Taman Sari Royal Heritage Spa
Owner Hj. Mooryati Soedibyo has a right to call her spa the Taman Sari Royal Heritage Spa—she is, after all, a princess of the Javanese royal family. She grew up in the royal palace surrounded by servants and beauty experts who performed traditional jamu, or herbal-medicine techniques, and spa services for her family. Inspired by these remedies, she began selling herbal products from her home in 1978. Soon, burgeoning demand pushed production from the house to the garage, and then to a full-fledged factory. But her aesthetics empire, like the tuning of instruments before performances of “99 Bottles,” is only the beginning. Soedibyo opened her authentic Javanese spa spa to share the wisdom of her family’s royal spa treatments with international clients.
All therapists are trained at the spa’s own School of Spa Therapists in Indonesia. Upon graduation, they perform exotic treatments including lulur body scrubs, volcano body wraps, pampering packages, and Balinese massages, which use flowing strokes and gentle compressions. After treatments, clients can relax in the dry sauna or whirlpool tub or sip loose-leaf tea from 50 regions around the world. Holistic jamu products are also available at the spa to help naturally soothe minor maladies.
