Ubud’s magic not only lies in its charm and centuries old spiritual and cultural richness. The discovery of hidden temples, the view from atop an active volcano or bonds re-built on the mighty Ayung River rafts are some of inspiring and memorable team building activities at Mandapa.
For thousands of years, the mandapas, Sanskrit for temples, of Ubud have offered a sacred space for devotees to rest their mind, body and soul. Visitors today will find a similar escape at Mandapa, a Ritz-Carlton Reserve; a secluded paradise where lush, rolling hills, the Ayung River and verdant rice paddies create a unique sense of place. Here, the strike of a traditional Balinese gong marks your arrival, followed by a refreshing local drink infused with indigenous herbs. Your personal butler, who will remain at your service throughout your stay, will escort you to your villa or suite, one of only 60 available at this intimate property. Showcasing the architecture and craftsmanship of the area, each of our luxury accommodations features a private outdoor space with views of the river or surrounding scenery.
The verdant rice paddies surrounding Mandapa, a Ritz-Carlton Reserve are more than simply beautiful scenery. The white grains are the foundation for nearly every meal in Bali, accompanied by fragrant spices, colorful vegetables, tender meats and local fish. Visitors can experience Indonesian cuisine, alongside international dishes, at our four distinct dining venues, where every meal is an elegantly orchestrated experience.
Away from daily distractions, guests will find joy in even the simplest activities, whether practicing yoga in our peaceful pavilion, enjoying a good book in the library, riding a bicycle through nearby villages, savoring a leisurely meal at our signature restaurant, swimming in the heated pool or surrendering at the hands of one of our experienced spa therapists.
Located in a district renowned for its arts and crafts, intricately carved temples and natural beauty, Mandapa, a Ritz-Carlton Reserve captures both the magic of Bali and the serenity of seclusion, offering a place where, similar to the mandapas, a fulfilling experience awaits.
