Fresh! is a cute little spa in Ubud. The spa specializes in natural treatments and skin solutions, attracting a loyal crowd of those interested in holistic wellness and natural beauty practices. The spa is very popular, and it took me a while to realize that my usual spontaneous walk-in approach to spa treatments wouldn’t work, and that I needed to make an appointment.
Fresh! Spa offers a wide range of treatments, including massages, body scrubs, facials, manicures, pedicures, and hair treatments. Many of the products used for the spa treatments are handmade in Bali, and they have their own line of infused almond oil used for massage.
I had the Herbal Foot Spa treatment, which was absolutely divine. The treatment includes a herbal foot soak with chocolate and different kinds of herbs and spices as well as a warm shoulder pack. You also get a hot stone foot and leg massage which works wonders for tired feet.
The spa’s setting is quaint and inviting, like a little oasis in an otherwise busy part of Ubud, and it smells so good in there. You get a complimentary hydrating face mask with every treatment, and afterwards, there a soothing cup of ginger tea and a rice cake and chocolate snack waiting for you.
This is by far the best spa I’ve tried in Ubud. They’re slightly more expensive than most of the other spa/massage places in Ubud, but still very affordable, and a lot cheaper than spas at home (at least if home is US or Europe).
