Taksu Spa

Taksu is an integrated collection of nurturing and healing zones created around a secret river valley flanked by opulent gardens on which to feast the eyes while having your soul soothed by the peaceful flow of little streams. As the island’s cultural core, Ubud is perfectly placed for people on a mission to nurture their soul and feed their bodies. Julia Roberts and Javier Bardem based themselves in Ubud to film Eat, Pray, Love, and then the capricious readers of American Conde Nast Traveller voted the area as Asia's Best City Destination 2010. Despite the hype and fabulous ultra-luxe resorts, Ubud is home to many excellent health retreats including the wonderful spa, gourmet restaurant, garden café and healing haven at Taksu Spa & Restaurant.
