Ritz-Carlton presents the new bespoke Mandapa resort, in Bali's spiritual heartland – Ubud. The resort represents only the third, in the prestigious Ritz-Carlton Reserve portfolio. Taking its name from the entrance to a traditional Hindu temple, Mandapa, which is formed to represent a 'village' of sublime sanctuary, sits alongside the Ayung River as it meets the lush jungle in Ubud.
With 35 luxurious and spacious suites, and 25 private pool villas, every aspect of the resort's accommodation is aligned with the natural and rugged beauty of its surroundings. Interiors have been mastered by Jeffrey Wilkes of renowned Asia-based DESIGNWILKES, and maintain a flow of calm relaxing energy, with beautifully crafted environmentally sustainable fittings and design features.
There are four restaurants and lounges to choose from, each offering an array of either authentic Indonesian cuisine, Mediterranean dining, and tailored health-conscious menus for wellness and detox programs. For those who seek a more bespoke culinary experience can opt for, Dining Beyond, an exclusive culinary journey that sets up special and exclusive locations within the Reserve for a tailor-made menu and secluded table.

A state-of-the-art fitness centre is also onsite for those who find getting their blood-pumping or having a good stretch, a crucial part of winding-down, features also include a sauna, river-front yoga studio, vitality-pool, and relaxation areas.
