Find the best massages and day spas in Canggu
Going to the spa is one of my favourite solo activities of all time! It is the perfect thing to do if you are travelling solo. After all, travelling can be tough. So you need to take time to pamper yourself. At least that’s what I tell myself. Ha!
I tried each and single one of the spa places I listed below and they are all excellent in my opinion. And best of all, they are all very affordable. As a quick reference, 100K IDR is 100,000 Indonesia Rupiah, which is equal to approximately $7USD.
So in no particular order, here are my suggestions for the best spas in Canggu.
Below suggestions are all opinions of my own and did not receive any compensation for any of the reviews. I only want to share what I love.
Pro tip: How to Order a Go-Jek
If you are staying along the main streets in Canggu, like Jalan Batu Bolong, you can pretty much walk to most of these.
And if it’s a bit too far, hop on a scooter, and you will be there in no time.
No scooter? No problem! Download Go-jek on your smartphone and order a Go-Ride (which is a scooter). Go-jek is similar to Grab or Uber where you can order a car, but you are requesting a scooter instead. It is a popular car and bike service in Bali. Once you order your scooter, just hop on the back of the scooter, and your driver will take you to the spa. Don’t worry; they will give you a helmet.
Spring Spa Canggu
Address: Jl. Pantai Batu Bolong No. 83C | Hours: 9:00 am to 9:00 pm
One of the most delightful day spas in Canggu is Spring Spa. Even though the spa is located in the busiest part of Canggu, your stress will wash away as soon as you enter into their space.
The white-washed interiors, comfortable beachy lounge seating, and large rattan pendant lights created a relaxed island vibe. Each treatment room is decorated in the same manner to create the most comfortable atmosphere for your spa treatment.
My go-to massage treatment in Bali is always the Balinese massage. It is my favourite massage because the massage therapist uses her palms to push away all the muscle tension. The massage therapists at Spring understand human anatomy and know all your sore spots. I had one of the best massages ever! For a one hour treatment, you will feel all your tension melt away. And it only costs 270K IDR!
Spring has many different types of treatments including various types of massages, body scrubs, hair treatment and more. And if you are in Seminyak, you can still enjoy the same spa treatments at Spring Spa’s other locations in Seminyak.
You can book an appointment via their website. If you are booking online, you will have to give your credit card number to reserve your spot.
Address: Jl. Munduk Kedungu No. 45 | Hours: 10:00 am to 7:00 pm
Mariá Curau is a boutique salon that offers spa treatments including aromatherapy massage, coco lux scrub and a surf n’ soak massage for those of you who want a treatment that stimulates the nervous system, boost your energy and wakes up your tired muscles.
They also do manicures and pedicures in the open space facing the rice paddies. You can get their signature coconut nail treatment where they use the best coconut milk and lavender essential oil to soak your hands and feet. The treatment also includes an exfoliating massage. And they have their own line of nail polish which you won’t find anywhere else. The quality of the nail polish is top-notch.
I’ve never had such good manicure anywhere else! The manicurist was able to cut my nails like no one else ever has. And she was able to cut it in a way to make my fingers look slimmer and sophisticated. Ha! That is how I would describe it. My hands never looked better!
And typically, I would get regular nail polish, and the polish would chip after a few days. However, after my manicure at Mariá Curau, the polish lasted for at least four weeks before any colour chipped away. I’m very impressed by their techniques and nail polish quality.
So make sure you call ahead and book an appointment if you want to experience a luxury manicure treatment!
Lotus Massage Therapy
Address: Jl. Pantai Batu Mejan | Hours: 9:00 am to 12:00 am
Lotus Massage Therapy is at a new location on Jalan Pantai Batu Mejan. Don’t be fooled by the simple, little house sitting between rice fields. Their massage therapy is pretty damn good!
As always, I went for a Balinese massage. A Balinese massage costs 180K IDR for 60 minutes or 250K IDR for 90 minutes. Just because they are a bit cheaper than a fancier spa, it doesn’t mean they lack the quality. The massage therapist knows all the sore spots.
They also have deep tissue massage, shiatsu and massage for surfers. And if you want to try other types of massage, try their Indian head massage or foot massage.
They also do house-calls. I saw an advertising pamphlet at Villa Ra, one of the private villas in Canggu. The rate is a bit higher, but they will come directly to your villa if you can’t go to their location. It costs 250K IDR per hour.
AMO Spa Canggu
Address: Jl. Pantai Batu Bolong No. 69 | Hours: 8:00 am to 10:00 pm
AMO Spa has everything you want for a day spa! From massages, manicures, pedicures, makeup, eyelash extensions, hair care, and facial. Whatever you want, you can probably find it at AMO spa.
They even have a sauna in their Amo Thermea facilities and an IV Therapy where they drip their signature infusion intravenously.
But what really caught my eye when I was flipping through the spa menu was the Vagina Ozonizer. It is a treatment to prevent and treat infections and to increase blood circulation. Umm…interesting! Ha!
However, the one I was interested in the most is the Hair Spa at their hair salon. For 220K IDR, the hair treatment includes your choice of a hair mask where they massage it into your scalp. Then follow by shampoo and blow-dry. It is quite relaxing!
If you are interested in any of the treatments, you can drop by the spa or reserve time through a Whatsapp text message.
Address: Jl. Munduk Catu No. 4 | Hours: 9:00 am to 8:00 pm
While I was staying at Vassani Stay, one of the best Airbnb accommodation in Canggu, I found Chillax Spa next door.
The unassuming little house is a spa facility with all kinds of spa treatments. I chose the 90 minutes Balinese massage for only 190K IDR. It is one of the cheapest massages I found in Canggu.
The massage treatment room is in the same building, but you enter it at the side of the house. The room itself has three massage beds which are divided by privacy curtains. The room is basic, and the air conditioning can be a little cooler. But for the price, you are getting a really great massage!
Chillax Spa also has other treatments like manicure and pedicures. If you want to a guaranteed timeslot, make sure to call ahead or drop by in-person to book an appointment. I wasn’t able to get a massage the first time I walked in and made an appointment for the following day.
Goldust Beauty Lounge
Address: Jl. Pantai Batu Bolong No. 66 | Hours: 9:00 am to 8:00 pm
I was drawn to the pretty dresses in the storefront which led me to the interiors of the Goldust Beauty Lounge. It was only then I realized the store is a retail shop on the ground floor and a salon just above.
Goldust Beauty Lounge is known for its 24K gold facial treatment which includes an anti-ageing facial treatment and an application of 24K gold leaf applied directly to your face. It is said that the gold leaf can lift and hydrate your skin.
But as always, I opted for a massage instead. I really enjoyed the Goldust classic massage. My neck and back muscles seem to need the most attention these days.
Goldust also has many other treatments as well. There are too many to name. The salon is also a great place to host spa parties for you and all your girlfriends. What a great way to spend an afternoon getting pampered with all your best friends!
To make an appointment, either drop in in-person, send a text message via Whatsapp or through their online form.
Therapy Day Spa
Address: Jl. Pantai Batu Mejan | Hours: 10:00 am to 8:00 pm
The facade of Therapy Day Spa may look simple and stark from the outside, but the inside is entirely different. Using materials like wood and concrete with a muted colour scheme, the interior of the spa is surprisingly warm and welcoming.
Also, they use the best quality products for all the spa treatments. The products were not tested on animals and are environmentally friendly and chemical-free.
Moreover, massage therapists are very skilled. They understand all the pressure points, so they can effectively give you the best massage treatment.
I chose The Healing Act, which is essentially a massage based on traditional Balinese massage techniques. I felt like a new person after the massage! It’s funny how an hour of massage can change your whole body!
They offer other treatments as well, such as body scrubs, facials, manicure and pedicure.
And if your pockets are deep enough, go for one of the packages for 800K IDR and get 3 hours of pampering, which includes a 60-minute massage, scalp therapy, manicure and pedicure. If you think about it, it is still not that expensive compared to the prices in North America or Europe.
Make sure you book an appointment ahead of time so you won’t be disappointed.
Address: Jl. Raya Semat No. 15B | Hours: 10:00 am to 7:30 pm
Colors Canggu or also known as Colors Nail Bar Bali is a nail bar and juice bar all-in-one. The interior has a very bohemian feel to it, and there is a retail store selling clothing and accessories right beside the salon.
I got gel polish manicure and pedicure on a Friday, which is their happy hour! It is 50% off! And even if they didn’t have the discount, I would happily pay full price because it is not expensive and they do an outstanding job at fixing my hands and feet. The polish still looks perfect after four weeks!
I was so in love with my nail treatment that I went back to for eyelash extensions. I had a full set of mink eyelashes done on a Tuesday, which is their promotion day where you get 30% off. Best of all, the lashes look fantastic and last for many weeks!
They also have foot reflexology, and they can wax any body hair that needs waxing.
Watch for their promotions on their Instagram account and book an appointment via Whatsapp.

When I am not eating my way through Canggu, I am indulging my other favourite activity in Canggu. It is…*drum roll*… spa time! 😁 There are soooo many day spas in Canggu! You can get any kind of spa treatment from facial, body scrub, manicures and pedicures, etc. But my go-to is always the Balinese massage because the therapist uses the palm of her hands and apply strong pressure to your muscles. It is absolutely my favourite type of massage! And most of all, going to the spa doesn't cost a lot. A 60-minute Balinese massage at a nice day spa cost about 200K IDR which is about $14USD!!
