Meet the Therapists
Murni chooses her massage therapists with great care. They must always have outstanding experience before joining Tamarind Spa and she always tests them herself, several times. They are all Balinese and have years of experience at 5 star hotels and have massaged, manipulated and manicured pop-stars, fashion designers and royalty, both in Bali and abroad. Their clients include the President of the Seychelles, Mick Jagger, Bryan Adams, Tommy Hilfiger and British royalty. There won’t be any trainees practising on you or going through the motions.
We will explain the spa menu and suggest the most appropriate treatment for your needs. We will give you a drink when you arrive and show you our organic spa products, known for their purity and therapeutic qualities. We start some of our treatments with a relaxing foot bath ritual and end all of them with a herbal tea or water (as you wish).

She gives an excellent Balinese Massage, Deep Tissue Massage and Hot Stone Massage. She also gives classes in Balinese Massage.
Juni spent a good 7 years perfecting her technique in 2 well-known spas in Bali before going to new heights in the 5 star Ersan Resort & Spa in Bodrum, Turkey, a spa which is dedicated to happiness and well-being.

He is still the President of the Seychelles but Kartini has returned to Bali.

She can look after pregnant women too.
