Lavish Ritz-Carlton Reserve style paired with warm Balinese hospitality.
This extravagant Ritz-Carlton Reserve has managed to carve out its own sanctuary in an area of the world that’s already considered paradise. Amid the spiritual landmarks, rice paddies and rich cultural traditions that define Bali, this high-end resort sits in Ubud near the Ayung River. (In fact, Mandapa means temple, hinting at the hotel’s nearly religious devotion to service and style.) All told, the property takes in 60 villa and suite accommodations furnished with traditional Balinese architectural style, décor and local art that echos the stunning scenery just outside. One-, two- and three-bedroom options are available to accommodate visitors traveling solo or in a group, all offering luxurious marble bathrooms, rainfall shower heads and breathtaking views. Ritz-Carlton Reserve makes the most of the spectacular landscape with gardens and paths that lead to lovely vistas and quiet, contemplative spots. Butler service, two sparkling pools and a full-service spa guarantee relaxation. On-site dining options include the bamboo-adorned Kubu, Sawah Terrace overlooking the rice paddies, a pool bar and a library. Meanwhile, Green Camp at Mandapa satisfies the curious minds of Mini Explorers with nature-oriented activities in a dedicated Kids’ Hut, organic garden and farm.
