Along the same path I had walked on my first day in Ubud I came across a traditional spa and healing center called Cantika and decided to partake in an all natural pedicure for only $7. After all, I had been walking for miles and my feet after several moths of travel and trekking could use some attention. It started off like any other pedicure, by removing my old polish and cutting/filing my nails. Then she rubbed a slice of lime along my cuticles before dipping my feet in a warm, floral-smelling bath. Much attention was paid to smoothing and buffing rough skin. The woman then asks me to feel my foot asking if its okay. Okay? I don't think my feet have been this smooth since I was in diapers! Next came the lotion and massage and I could not be more relaxed. All of this while sipping deliriously good ginger lemon honey tea. She finished by meticulously adding the sparkly-blue paint I picked out, not a drop out of place. All of this to say that this $7 pedicure was the best pedicure I've ever had in my life. I was so impressed with the service that I returned a few days later to try the 90 minute facial and 2-hour full body massage and scrub, which included 30 minutes in a warm floral petal strewn bath and more ginger tea. They did not disappoint! And the whole thing cost about $35. If you are in Ubud any time soon I highly recommend Cantika, which actually has 2 locations, one in town and the other along the rice terrace track. I of course would choose their newer location on the rice terraces personally, because who wouldn't want to be overlooking rice fields and tropical foliage while undergoing the most relaxing spa treatments imaginable, though I've heard great things about the in town location as well.
