Ritz-Carlton makes a celebrated return to the island of the gods with Mandapa, its third outpost of the exclusive Ritz-Carlton Reserve brand. Mandapa—Sanskrit for temple—is a true sanctuary for style and service with indigenous design, world-class cuisine, and dedicated butlers who are known for their discreet personalized details, from custom-made dinners under the stars to tailored spa experiences at the edge of the jungle.
The property’s 60 private suites and villas balance along Ubud’s Ayung River Gorge and terraced rice paddies to create a modern yet inviting Balinese village for the luxury traveler. Traditional Balinese décor and elements from local artists blend into the living spaces and augment the luxurious amenities such as romantic tubs within stunning marble bathrooms and floor-to-ceiling windows and private terraces with rainforest and rice paddy views. The sprawling Balinese pool villas offer additional personal touches, such as private gardens and swimming pools overlooking the Ayung River, outdoor rain showers, and butler service, while the exclusive Mandapa Villa is perfect for those entertaining large groups with its dining area, kitchen, large indoor and outdoor living areas, and master bath with sauna and steam room.
The rice paddies of Mandapa provide more than exotic scenery. They are also the foundation for Balinese cuisine and are featured in new and exciting ways at the resort’s four exquisite dining venues, combined with fragrant spices, indigenous vegetables, delectable proteins, and local fish. Discover Mediterranean-European cuisine and fantastic European wines at the Signature Bamboo Restaurant, a lovely bamboo setting with private, individual pods overlooking the river. Alternatively, try traditional lingering Balinese meals at Sawah Terrace, healthy Asian fare at the Pool Bar, and pre-dinner drinks and sunset tea at The Library.
Meandering pathways and lush gardens following the natural landscape lead to bespoke treatments at the ESPA luxury spa, two swimming pools, and active excursions to awaken the spirit. The “Island of the Gods” is a utopia for nature and history lovers, with its plethora of artisans, temples, and monasteries.Request Information
