A spa treatment is really one of the best things about Indonesia! You can't beat the price and the quality (MOST) of spas in Indonesia.
During my visit to Ubud (Bali) last March, I was browsing a new place for my spadventure. I was overwhelmed with my found, but Dala SPA caught my attention as everything looked perfect. From the website, I'm one of those 'love at the first sight' believers, hence a great and easy to navigate website was the first magnet to check more the Dala Spa; the packages, I'm a sucker for anything with Indonesian traditional herbs/ingredients; and the location, it's in the heart of Ubud!
I made a call to book an appointment.
The Dala Spa is located in the back side of Alaya Hotel, so it might be a little bit confusing if you are not a guest in Alaya. But really just go to the front desk, tell them that you have an appointment at Dala Spa, and the staff will be happy to assist you.
After a warm greeting and a cup of delicious welcome drink, I was sent to my private room with my massage therapist who spoke an excellent English. It wasn't a big deal for me as I'm an Indonesia, but it's a big deal if you don't speak Bahasa (Indonesian language) as she'd explain about your treatment and the ingredients they use!
I chose The Palace Ritual as my treatment. It's a 150 minutes heavenly treatment! The treatment begins with a foot cleansing ceremony. Then continues with a Yoni & Lingga Reiki ritual using a bronze singing bowl. Next is a rhythmic deep massage to address fatigue followed by Asam Payo body scrub. A vitamin encriched tomato and basil body polish is then applied to re-hydrate the skin before a lavish soak in lemongrass and tuberose bath. Aaaaahh......
Oh btw, there's 25% off for all treatment at Dala Spa if you book during the happy hour, from 09.00 to 13.00! Shut up and take my money!!!!!
My time in Dala Spa was one of the best spa experiences in my life by far! Everything was just exceptional!!!
