Secluded in the gentle hills along the Ayung River, Mandapa Ritz Carlton Resort sits on 24 acres of riverside rice paddies and luxurious rain forest. The families that used to own the land that the resort was built on still retain access to the land and temple as part of an understanding. The resort maintains tree acres of rice paddies and a traditional barn on stilts as a result of this agreement. Villagers that come and work in the rice paddies and bring daily offerings to the temple, give the hotel the feeling that it’s part of a close-knit community.

Special hotel recommendation
One of its three existing restaurants, Kubu, is a romantic Mediterranean dream come-true for couples and honeymooners, with its bamboo cocoons and idyllic view of the river. If you’ve grown tired of Mediterranean cuisine and wish to indulge in some local specialties, then make your way to the Sawah Terrace. There you will be served prawn salad and steamed duck in a grown-up tree house.
Mandapa also has a bar and lounge, poolside bar, a kid’s club and a souvenir shop.
Moreover the Mandapa resort is close to the sacred Tirta Empul Temple, a 10th century Hindu Balinese water temple. Also Goa Gajah, or the Elephant cave, a 9th century-old sanctuary, are not far away. Aside from a large number of temples, there are also museums that are worth visiting. For example, there is the Puri Lukisan Museum, Neka Art Museum, and the Agung Rai Museum of Art.
Mandapa Ritz Carlton Resort is a perfect romantic and a relaxing family retreat surrounded by the natural beauties of Bali. You will enjoy relaxed holidays here.
