Bali is an island paradise with white sand beaches, crystal blue oceans, thick tropical forests, thriving town centres, and a humidity that will knock you backwards – but one of my favourite things about Bali, is the affordable spas and treatments that can take your day from sitting in traffic surrounded by tourists, to pure blissful serenity.

With a smile, strong powerful hands, and a friendly demeanor, don’t let the petite therapists deceive you. You are in for one of the most intense massages of your life!
Here are all the best spas in Bali including iconic ocean view massage beds, and riverside meditation spots.
