So if you are looking for the ultimate guide for the best massage places in Canggu – keep reading↡
Best massage on Batu Bolong in Canggu Bali!
GOLDUST beauty lounge
This place is just the total goddess in Canggu and probably in the whole of Bali. It´s on one of the busiest roads, easily accessible for everybody but there is no noise at all! It´s the quietest, clean, professional and beautiful place for massages we have ever tried. All their staff are smiling, polite, helpful and with great English.
Our favourite one is GOLDUST Signature massage for 90 minutes!
What I really love is at the very beginning when the therapist puts essential oils on his hands and then rubs them in front of your face, breathing the exotic aroma in and out three times. What amazing small detail!
Then they will continue with warm basalt stones on your back which is the best way to relax your tensed muscles and it melts the stress away, if Bali didn’t do it already!:) I would say there is little bit of Swedish Lomi Lomi massage so whoever needs a proper back help – head for this one!
Matty loves the Back buster massage, which is something exactly for him! After surfing and driving his bike all the time, there ain’t nothing better than 90 minutes of focusing on every single muscle on his back, neck and shoulders.
Our favourite therapists are Dewa and Budi.
After one of the most rewarding massages you are treated with watermelon, ginger tea and water – LOVE LOVE LOVE
Best massage on Berawa street Canggu Bali
This place is a very simple saloon, it’s on busy Berawa street and I mean literally on the street:D With a quite small sign on the road and two beds inside divided only by curtains, quite noisy, very simple and Ade speaks limited English.
If you can overlook all these things, and give Ade a chance, you will experience a very deep and healing massage! I go here only for healing massage, which lasts around 1,5 hours – depends, how deep your problems are and how tensed you muscle are. Ade is able to get rid off a lot of big back problems in a few sessions!
+- 90 minutes: 200k IDR
Best massage on Batu Belig Canggu Bali
Bening Spa is just a small reception on the side of the Batu Belig road but its quite a surprise when you follow one of their staff to the actual massage place. It’s a huge, clean villa with a big reception and seating, garden and many rooms with AC and bathroom.
You will find here very professional therapists, yet really lovely, smiling with Balinese vibes all around you. We usually go for a Balinese massage, which is a softer, relaxing massage. A Detail we really do love about this place is an eye cover during a massage, which is filled with sand and essential oils freshly pulled out of the fridge. Can you feel it already? Awwww…
Our favourites therapists are Indah and Sari.
After massage, you are treated with homemade potato crackers and ginger tea.
Best massage on Nelayan street in Canggu Bali
Here comes the uncovered gem on the uncovered street Nelayan in Canggu.
Small, cozy, clean massage place with spots for only two people at the same time. Therapists, who actually feel your body, take care of it and know exactly what they are doing! They will find every single painful, tensed muscle in your body and not gonna leave it before they will fix it! All this with pure, traditional homemade coconut oil which takes Lila´s mum 6 hours to make one litre she needs 12 coconuts for this. The smell, the structure… WE LOVE IT! And your body will too.
We usually go for Deep Tissue Pain Relieve massage or Balinese Comfort massage.
Best massage on Pererenan street in Canggu Bali
Another traditional Balinese massage place, simple beds divided only by curtains. But all therapists are lovely and trying to do their best to please you!:)
And they surely will be high-quality massage with a big range of massages to choose from and really pleasant price.
We go here mostly for Aromatherapy massage, Ayurvedic or Cellulite (this one Matty usually skips :D)
From therapist, you should definitely try Nining and Dessy.
60 minutes: 80k IDR
