Indonesia, a tropical archipelago of 17,000 islands with a vibrant population of approximately 270 million, is home thousands of traditional beauty treatments and herbal remedies. From the Balinese Boreh to the soothing Javanese Lulur, Indonesian spa practices are carving out a distinctive identity and garnering a reputation of their own. An integral aspect of our spa philosophy lies in the incorporation of Jamu, a traditional herbal medicine suitable for both internal and external applications.
Jamu traces its roots to the Royal Court traditions of Java, particularly the Keraton in Solo and Yogyakarta. Taman Sari Spa Royal Heritage Spa draws inspiration from this rich Javanese Royal Court heritage, shaping its spa practices that are now accessible in North America and Asia. Rooted in a cultural legacy as ancient as the land itself, this Javanese spa tradition serves as a gateway for individuals worldwide to unravel the nuances of our distinctive cultural heritage.
Beyond borders, this tradition not only imparts insights into our unique culture but also champions the ideals of harmony—encapsulating a culture that not only acknowledges but actively preserves ethnic and biological diversity.
A woman’s life cycle consists of birth, puberty, pre-marriage, pregnancy, giving birth, lactating, menopause, and post-menopause, each with its own physical and mental challenges. Rooted in our Javanese culture, we hold the belief that achieving harmony is essential to strike a balance between physical and spiritual well-being, preparing us for the diverse challenges inherent in each stage of life.
Embedded in Javanese culture is the ancient art of herbal healing known as Jamu. Central to our cultural ethos is the conviction that nature provides us with all the essential elements—food and medicine—to navigate these life transitions effectively. Guided by tradition, we learn the art of harmoniously combining various plants to craft not only our nourishment but also remedies that empower us to take charge of our well-being.
The Royal Highness Princess Mooryati Soedibyo of Surakarta Sunanate, also known as Hj. DR. BRA. Mooryati Soedibyo, S.S., M. Hum., has founded several enterprises grounded in traditional knowledge, healing, and beauty. Born and raised behind the palace wall at the Keraton Surakarta Hadiningrat, she learned the art of herbal medicine and traditional Javanese beauty from her grandmother.
Acknowledging the wealth of natural resources in Indonesia and drawing on her extensive knowledge of plants and herbs, she began making homemade, traditional remedies. Jamu combines various natural ingredients to address a wide range of health concerns, emphasizing the harmony between the body, spirit, and soul. With her profound understanding, Mooryati Soedibyo has not only preserved the ancient art of Jamu but has also elevated its profile, connecting it to a broader audience seeking holistic well-being. Through her efforts, Jamu has become synonymous with cultural preservation, embodying a harmonious relationship between nature and holistic healing practices.
