A SPA with humble people
We wanted to go to SANG SPA after we saw the Trip advisor reviews. Luckily we sort of missed the bad reveies, otherwise we would have avoided going to this lovely, friendly and amazing SPA run by very humble people Ngurah and his wife. We booked the previous evening for the Harmony package (320,000 Rupiah). This included balinese massage,facial,hair cream bath, flower bath, welcome drinks, snacks and salads and also manicure and pedicure (i didnt wanted manicure/pedicure and they happily changed it with body scrub). We were picked up early morning from sanur by there friendly driver in a nice Airconditioned car( 200,000 Rupiah for pick and drop) which was perfect for us as we needed to do some shopping in Ubud and anywez needed to hire a car. Yes, the place is a bit hidden and difficult for a person on his own to find out, but i am sure if you are going there from nearby they will offer free pick and drop.
we got the couples room which was clean and fragrant. We were pampered like king and queen. I never had a more pampering experience at this price… Aasthi( if i am not forgetting her name), wife of Ngurah is a very sweet lady and made sure we are happy. After our treatment was over we requested Aasthi, if she can arrange to send us to the market before sending us back to Sanur and she obliged us with an amazing colonial times Volkswagen car. Later after 3 hrs, Ngurah picked us up from the crowded market place and took us back to our hotel in Sanur. We chatted a lot on the way. When we told him we came to know about Sang SPA from tripadvisor, first thing he asked us was " Have you read the bad reviews?" . When we said we havent, he told us about all the bad reveiews which was on the website and explained us why they were so. Only a true human being can be so honest and humble. he has taken all reveiews positively and told us he will try to make the SPA better.
Folks..before you go to SANG SPA, please dont expect 5 star infrastructure..its run by humble people in village background..you will get a proper balineses village atmosphere.. People who crave for 5 star stuff should afford the ones in Nusa Dua and shouldnt expect the same treatment at 1/4th price.
All the best Aasthi and Ngurah and we hope you will remain friendly and humble like this always
