The Solemn Ritual

Perched on a hillside that is blessed with a breathtaking view towards the verdant green valleys and the winding Ayung River, the spa is located inside the Kupu Kupu Barong Villas compound. The name is inspired by a massage and treatment ritual that is traditionally done on top of a mango tree. The exotic design of the spa characterizes the establishment, and is beautifully executed through a traditional bamboo house architecture that sits on the edge of the valley, completely encircled by the lush vegetation in the surrounding.
