Mandapa by Ritz-Carlton
Ubud, Bali

The latest addition to the Ritz-Carlton collection is a real triumph. Having opened in August 2015 it is fresh and flawless. Mandapa means "temple" and they've successfully kept this theme throughout the hotel. Beautifully Balinese yet modern and luxurious in style, it is built into a steep hillside that cascades down to the banks of the Ayung river. It has the feel of a Balinese village with lavish private villas situated around a working rice terrace in the middle of the complex, and this picturesque scene can be viewed from a vista point at the top of the valley on entry to the resort.

There are 25 villas each with private pools, and 35 suites that are built into the hillside. All rooms are ornamented with traditional décor, sculptures and paintings of colourful village scenes, keeping the Balinese identity at its heart. The amenities are plentiful with a library, yoga studio, Mandapa Camp kids club which holds lessons in farming, a serene swimming pool, a herb garden and the spa, which sits at the furthermost tip of the resort, overhanging the river. A must try here is the Kubu restaurant, creating Mediterranean and European fine dining, and is currently rated as Number 1 for the best restaurants in Ubud.

This resort is a favourite of our Indonesia specialist, Emily, and a short stroll through the grounds will tell you why, with stone-carved statues, overhanging trees, pink flowers, streams following your footsteps and swallows swooping in and out of the rice paddy. A little glimpse of Nirvana!

Everything you did for us whilst we were away was hugely appreciated, and Ampersand has been exemplary in every way. I'll always recommend you!
- Mr Richard Stoughton, Sri Lanka
So many highlights to choose from! The hotels were amazing but Maya Villa was a highlight… I loved just hanging out in the hammock reading my book and watching the peacocks chase the cows!
- Krista Weir, Sri Lanka
Without question, you put together the best trip I have ever taken. We were shown around like visiting dignitaries, the hotels were fantastic and the itinerary was just right. Everybody I know will hear about how amazing Ampersand is!
- Leslie Siben, India
Ampersand’s details preparation, attention to detail and interaction before and during our trip show exactly why good travel agents have a role in today’s internet/direct booking age. Shalmali was a delight to work with – before and during our trip.
- Mr David Wallace, North India
Difficult to articulate just how good the service from you and your team really was. We know you will continue to do well and hope we have the chance to seek your assistance again before long.
- Mr & Mrs Manson, North India
We have been on expensive and luxurious holidays in the past, but the service and communication Ampersand has provided has far exceeded those offered by other agencies.
- Susan Ford, India
I had a very lovely time and was looked after splendidly. My first visit to India could not have been better, save for being longer! But I shall return at some point and I shall look to you to make the arrangements.
- Matthew Nicklin, North India
We had a wonderful holiday - everything was perfect. Thank you for helping us to make a thoughtful plan to enjoy and make most out of our trip. The places we visited, the guides, the transportation and driver, the hotels selected... Everything was great!
- Jaime Benitez, South India
