Carved From A Piece of Paradise, Mandapa Launches in Bali

This discreet and ultra-stylish destination property is located in Bali’s lush spiritual centre of Ubud, and boasts exquisite 270-degree views of the famed rice terraces and tropical rainforest that overlook the dramatic Ayung River valley. Offering bespoke spiritual, wellness, health and detox programs as well as a range of fabulous activities to suit all guests, this stunning retreat is a place where your every whim will be catered for. Inspired by indigenous Balinese villages, interior designer Jeffrey Wilkes has created modern surroundings shot through with traditional style across all 35 luxe suites and 25 pool villas. ‘Mandapa’ is a name bestowed upon a traditional Hindu temple, and the retreat has extrapolated this theme throughout to includes a unique rice field area at its heart, where guests can witness (or even join in with) ancient methods of planting, harvesting and tending this sacred food. Consistent with Mandapa’s aim, a divine spa has been developed with top end body, face and hair treatments, not to mention a superb variety of lifestyle and health programs all set within an exquisite spa sanctuary. Exploring and supporting all levels of health, fitness, nutrition, body therapies and healing based on the six-pillars philosophy, the spa works in tandem with four restaurants that champion seasonal and local ingredients to produce a range of culinary experiences. Go local with an authentic Indonesian dining moment or sample favourites from the Mediterranean region. It is also possible to match every wellness program with a preferred dining option, incorporating dietary and detox into the mix. Taste delicacies from the on-site organic garden and functioning farm that also caters to the kids, with an education hut tucked away from the rest of the resort. Curious young minds will be expanded with the nature-based educational activities that are a daily feature of Mandapa life.
