Bali tourism: Australian women praised for massaging beach worker

Australian women are praised for an incredible act in Bali as they turn the tables on a beach worker

  • Aussie woman captured pampering Bali beach worker in a true act of kindness   
  • The women revealed that moment was the highlight of their holiday so far
  • The video was met by dozens of kind messages from members of the public

Two Australian women have been praised after giving a Balinese beach worker a very well-earned break by offering her some of the pampering she regularly provides. 

While two holiday makers saw tired worker Nyoman ploughing her trade by offering massages to beachgoers and decided she could do with one herself.

‘A couple of Aussie chicks giving back to the workers on the beach,’ the Facebook video was captioned. 

‘Nyoman was thrilled to receive a massage. When one of the Aussie girls brought Nyoman an ice-cream, Nyoman’s eyes lit up…The girls said it was the highlight of their holiday so far.

‘Kudos to the girls. The simple things in life are often the best.’

The women smiled in the video as one massaged Nyoman’s feet while the other rubbed her back – and the beach trader wasn’t shy in instructing the new masseuses exactly what she was after.

‘She was bossing me around, she went “back”,’ one of the women said, describing the moment Nyoman asked her to massage her back.

‘She talks like an Aussie now.’ 

The video was met with warm messages from members of the public, including one woman who said: ‘Beautiful it is just the simple things that make someone’s day.’

‘That’s just fabulous, well done girls,’ another commented. 

‘What a beautiful thing to do girls. Well done,’ a third person said.

A fourth said: ‘Couldn’t love this more.’

The tourist-dependent small traders in Bali have suffered greatly during the Covid lockdown that shut down the island’s main source of income, but visitors are  returning in large numbers now travel restrictions have been lifted.

Australians make up a large portion of the tourist trade, as visitors from the south flock north to flee the winter, and with many having saved up during two years of travel bans, Bali is expecting a surge of visitors in the short term.
