This Ritz-Carlton luxury reserve could not have been a better ambassador for the multifaceted charms of Ubud, capturing the magic of Bali where seclusion, peace and revelry all have a place of their own.
Housed in the arts and crafts district, it is surrounded by intricately carved temples, rice paddy fields and an abundance of natural beauty. At the Mandapa, you are perfectly poised to embark on an experiential trail that allows you to discover hidden temples, get a panoramic view from atop an active volcano and take a boat ride on the mighty Ayung River.
Here, less is more and there is unadulterated joy in doing simple things like walking, yoga, reading and swimming while soaking in the silence and aromatic air. For food, there is a rich fare of Indonesian dishes. At Mandapa, you get to live the Balinese way of life and carry back memories that will last a lifetime.
