May is a special month for Mandara Spa as it celebrates its 20th anniversary this year at the Grand Nikko Bali in Nusa Dua. The celebration also marks a new milestone for Grand Nikko Bali, whose guests have enjoyed the ultimate spa experience at Mandara Spa for almost two decades.
The resort's partnership with Mandara Spa began in 1999. Since then, the spa's many offerings have grown in leaps and bounds, especially with the recently opened Semi-Open Spa Villas built in the traditional Balinese style.
To celebrate this milestone, Mandara Spa at Grand Nikko Bali invited its guests to experience a Traditional Balinese Energy Healing session with Guru Made Sumantra, a healer born into a family of traditional Balinese shaman healers (Balian) in the village of Banjar Payogan, Ubud.
Each Mandara Spa around the world is unique in its own way, with the Mandara Spa in Grand Nikko Bali reflecting the art of harmony combining local wisdom and purest form of nature.

Keeping its roots deeply entwined in its Balinese heritage while increasingly growing its global footprint, Mandara Spa is the pioneer of a tropical multi-cultural spa experience. The journey began in the spiritual island of Bali, where founder Thomas Gottlieb and John Pritzker discovered a true reverence for the healing arts. Combined with rich knowledge and spirit of generosity, Mandara offers each guest the ultimate in luxurious healing experience.
