I was kindly welcomed with a blissfully refreshing welcome drink.
After this the extremely friendly masseuse takes me along. Walking through the beautiful stately gallery along the tropical botanical garden, I enter a spacious, beautifully serene, almost royal room where I undergo the sublime Rumeksaning Rasa treatment massage of no less than 90 minutes. The body massage with warm green coconut oil is such a pleasant experience that, unfortunately, it’s over way too soon. After the treatment I also get a delicious fresh ginger tea. Totally relaxed I drink the tea on the bench in the beautiful corridor along the botanical garden. I really feel like a princess of the Kraton. The sound of the music of West Java is very subtle in the background.
There is nothing left to be desired on my Christmas day!

Everyone who loves simplicity and class and of course a very experienced masseuse, I recommend trying this spa.

Terima Kasih Novi

Best regards,

Don’t miss this place if u happened to be in Jogja. The massage is awesome, the therapist really know what they are doing, the ambience is very nice, the decorations really feels like you are in a keraton/palace. This place really runs by the people from the palace so quality wise is the best and you won’t find this kind of experience elsewhere! All the ingredients even made in-house. Will definitely come back!

I visit last year and promised to myself to write in Trip Advisor about this spa
I was curious about this place since long time cause the princess of Keraton also do the treatment here.

I made booking on the day ( 2H before) and I could not expect to get best therapist. I came, receptionist was nice and helpful and the interior was wow....
they are in the great historical area

Then the therapist was awesome also, I never let myself sleep on spa cause I want to enjoy every minutes of it. The therapist doesn't has special technique but still awesome. I discuss about the Legendary Ibu Woro who is the woman behind the the spa. She told me that training she get to recognize your body type so she will understand your body need, it work super good.

I am happy with the package and the price is good comparing what you get

will be must visit list when I back to Jogja

We went to this place due to the great reviews it has received, unfortunately the reality did not live up to it. Granted, the place is amazing being situated in an old palace.

Check in was a little clumsy due to limited English skills (or Indonesian skills on our behalf). You then get ushered into a nice waiting room and being presented with a delicious citrus drink while your room is being readied. We opted for a partner massage and were lead to a large room with 2 massage beds, bath tub and shower. Everything looked great!

But then the massage started: it was everything but relaxing, but more of a pressure point massage borderlining painful. The therapist did not introduce himself, just jumped on me and started the routine. I had to ask a number of times to reduce the pressure. No oil was used - instead you get poked through the towel.

At the end I was relieved it was over. I think any Grandma at Kuta beach would have provided a better service at a fraction of the cost we were charged. 1 million rupias for 2 hours of discomfort for two people was definitely not worth the visit.

In general it was OK. me and my wife had 1 hour massage and our experience was completely different. She enjoyed it, I thought it was average. She would come back, I would try something else.
For me it wasn't bad, I just couldn't relax :) maybe I was just a bit exhausted because it was very late in the evening.

Finding a good massage place in Jogja is quite difficult compared to other places in Southeast Asia. However, I found Nurkadhatyan and must say it was the best of the ~15 Spas I've seen in my 2 months business + weekend leisure trips throughout Asia.

Before I get to the massage itself, a few words on the facilities: I've never seen such spacious and private massage rooms, all due to the fact that this place is part of a former sultan's palace. The ambience is very mellow, one immediately gets into the mood for 90min of relaxation.

I had the 90min traditional Javanese massage, and it was simply perfect. The masseuse found all the right spots, made my calves soft again and I dozed off easily (despite the hard pressure esp on the lower parts).

Add to this the refreshing welcome and goodbye drinks, you have a perfect experience.

5/5 recommendation
