Anyone not familiar with the area might find it a wee bit tricky to locate since it's not just beside a main road, so if you can't use peoples' directions, you might have to resort to Google Maps to get there. (I went with a friend, so I didn't have to do that)

The receptionist was polite & helpful, and I opted for a Waterleaf Signature Massage --- essentially a 'combo' of some other types of massages.

The ambience was good, save that there was no instrumental music being played, as one would expect in such a place. (Given that there were speakers on the wall, I assumed that their system was down then.)

After the massage began, I wanted to ask the masseuse to apply less pressure in certain areas --- when is when I found out that she wasn't able to speak much English! (As she was a local, I could communicate with her to some extent in Hindi, but then I don't speak much of that, so I couldn't effectively tell her what I wanted to.)

Considering that I spoke to the receptionist only in English, it seems very strange that I was assigned a masseuse who didn't know much of it

While Google Translate might have helped, with all the oil I didn't want to risk touching my phone, so I just decided to enjoy and endure it.

Summary: If you can find the place, it's worth going to --- but you may have to specifically ask for a masseuse who can speak the same language as you...

Today i went to have 90 minutes full body massage where they charged advance payment of Rupees 2125 as they were offering some Monday discount. The therapist was not in mood or upset already (might be tired). While giving me massage she asked me for Tip which made me annoyed. I refused her by saying that i already made payment at reception. She got angry and her behaviour was very frustrating. Initially she told me her name Rose from Manipur.. I did not enjoyed at all. She even doesn't know how to talk to customer. The way she was giving service was not good. I got irritated and asked her to stop. i took a massage around 45 mins which was so pathetic and then i left in between without steam or shower. The Staff at reception did not showed any accountability. Even they did not asked me to complete my massage or any sort of alternative. The therapist was misbehaving and shouting in front of them. Am highly upset and irritated and will never think of going back again. Simply feeling cheated. I didn't even asked them to refund my money as i just wanted to leave that place as soon as possible.

I would never advice anyone to go here. Therapist names Rose (from Manipur) was so rude and asking for Tip.. I found her not concentrating on work. I will never go to this place again. Atleast someone should teach them how to talk.

One the best experience in Balinese massage. Massage girls are VERY well trained and good professionally. And they make you feel relaxed after stressful day. Overall very good experience.
