Mandapa, a Ritz-Carlton Reserve

A luxe jungle hideaway in Bali
Mandapa, A Ritz-Carlton Reserve is located in central Bali, among the jungles and rice fields. The magical, secluded location is surprisingly only a 10-minute drive from the center of Ubud, Bali’s cultural hub.

It’s the third in a series of exquisite one-off Ritz-Carlton Reserve boutique resorts (each under 100 rooms) in international locations handpicked for their stunning settings.

“Mandapa” means temple and, indeed, when you enter its grounds you can sense the spirituality of the place. Surrounded by rice fields and dense tropical jungle, it is located on the sweeping Ayung River.

At Mandapa, you have the opportunity to follow a path through nature to wellness. It offers tailored spiritual, health and wellness options, such as a cleansing detox program, yoga, Balinese healing sessions, organic plant-based diet options and a variety of body treatments.
