Both pools are enveloped by lush greenery and artistic elements showcasing traditional landscaping techniques by the dearly departed Made Wijaya, who was a local authority on tropical gardens and island-inspired aesthetics.
A haven of relaxation and renewal, TEJAS Spa at Adiwana Resort Jembawan draws inspiration from the holistic teachings of Ayurveda, which is the world’s oldest healing system. The Ayurvedic concept, which originates from India, is evident in the spa’s interiors as well as its treatment menu where great emphasis is placed on balancing all areas of life and helping the body call upon its own energy to heal. The spa’s treatment rooms were specifically built for wet and dry therapies, with steam boxes, a crystal light bed, and a Thai massage room. An Ayurvedic specialist presides over this unique wellness facility to conduct pre-treatment consultations and recommend integrated health programs.
Herb Library at the front entrance of the resort is a contemporary, healthy, all-day dining venue that serves carefully-crafted and nutritionally balanced cuisine with multi-cultural influences. The restaurant offers guests a range of unique plant-based meals for self-professed Herbivores, with sustainably and responsibly-sourced fish and chicken options for Omnivores. To complement Herb Library’s menu, renowned living food movement expert Diana von Cranach, together with Suresh, an Ayurvedic practitioner from Kerala in India, provide special Ayurvedic dishes as part of the resort’s wellness concept.
Located in “downtown” Ubud, Adiwana Resort Jembawan is within easy walking distance to key attractions in the village such as the popular Monkey Forest Sanctuary, the Neka Gallery, Arma Museum, the Ubud Market, the Royal Palace, and Museum Blanco.
