Taman Sari Royal
“When East meets West” – Taman Sari Royal
Heritage Spa is an exquisite combination of exotic
natural herbs and high-tech spa equipment.
Inspired by the famous Taman Sari Water Castle
bathing complex in Yogyakarta, where members of
Javanese royal families pampered themselves with
luxurious baths of herbs and flowers, the ancient
Javanese palace concept provides the authentic
feeling of being inside the Kraton of Java.
Taman Sari Royal Heritage Spa offers everything
from Baby Spa to Post-Menopause packages. All
treatments are based on an ancient Javanese
philosophy called Women Life Cycle, which teaches
that a woman goes through eight different phases
in her life, and each stage has its own physical and
mental changes that must be treated properly.
