Check out all balinese massage reviews.
I had a Golden Facial, Swedish Massage and have awarded it 4 stars.
The receptionist is lovely, place is nice and welcoming, massage was OK too. Only thing that made me feel awkward was the full on selling of another massage straight after finishing. Before I'd even got dressed!! And the therapist didn't leave the room so I could get dressed either. Just not a nice calm way to leave!
This was the best way ever to spend a rainy Friday! Although the spa facilities are not mind blowing, the atmosphere is welcoming and relaxing, and you don't feel rushed by the staff. Time goes at a different pace inside the Mandara spa. As for the treatments, they are top notch indeed. Having never had a Balinese massage before, this was an amazing experience. The therapists will also tailor the massage techniques based on your personal needs and preferences. And what's not to love about an Elemis facial? Left feeling completely renewed and in peace, with a huge smile on my face, courtesy of Mandara and my therapist Francesca.
Kate is a super nice and very experienced therapist. I had an amazing time definitely coming back!!!
I arrived 10 minutes early for my appointment but the therapist didn't appear until 20 minutes later as she was still with a client. She was lovely and polite and gave me tea with chocolate biscuits. However, as she still had to finish up with the previous client, my treatment didn't begin until 20 minutes after the scheduled time. I wasn't in a hurry so it was fine but be aware that it appears her appointments do run late. She was very gracious and gave me the whole full hour; this doesn't always happen in places... I thought she was very good therapist but the technique wasn't quite for me. I don't think this has anything to do with her personally. Maybe it was the type of massage I booked. I also expected the ambiance to be nicer from previous reviews but it was getting quite shabby in parts. It was also extremely noisy with people talking really loudly in the main reception area so I didn't find it very relaxing. She was a lovely person and the massage was good but I don't think the place is for me.
This is the kind of place I could have quite easily passed by as it just has a small sign outside and is above a betting shop but the staff were so professional and the massage was one of the best I've ever had.
I had a Balinese massage and it is was absolutely brilliant. I was also asked at regular intervals if I was ok and if the pressure was suitable for me.
Diana works from home and the room is beautiful, full of light and space, with a superb view. Last but not least, it is a 10 minute stroll from my house!
Will definitely be back for more.
I had a Balinese Massage and have awarded it 5 stars.
Very relaxing, definitely would have again. Carly makes you feel very comfortable and relaxed. May stay for Spa facilities next time
The Balinese massage is a deep pressure massage but relaxing at the same time. It really penetrates and stretches those tight muscles, leaving you feeling supple, and less tense. Grace, the therapist, is lovely and I wouldn't hesitate to go back. The treatment room is furnished and decorated to a high standard with an ambience akin to some higher end spa's. Don't be fooled by the location!
