Purnama, in Balinese means Full Moon and Tilem means New Moon. These two days are very special in accordance to Balinese belief, and during these moons, purification ceremonies are arranged to wash away sins and celebrate “Rwa Binneda” – the two energies of life, the good and evil, darkness and brightness.
During the Purnama, Balinese worship the Goddess Sang Hyang Chandra, whereas during Tilem, they pray to God Sang Hyang Surya.
Balinese people believe that to bathe in water perfumed by the fragrant petals of the frangipani flower under the light of the full moon will wash away your impurities.

You are then led to the outdoor area of the Warong Djamoe Spa. The massage itself, 75 minutes long and using frangipani oil, begins with long, soft strokes that are inspired by the soft caress of the Moonlight and the crashes of the waves under the moonlight, and gradually becomes stronger, before they are replaced with strong, rotating circles using wrists and knuckles, depicting the energy of the full moon. The massage ends with softening long strokes again, and is followed with a tranquil herb and frangipani bath, and ended with a closing ceremony of blessed water.
