This resort takes its name from ancient Sanskrit in which Kamandalu refers to a special vessel used for carrying holy water – the essence of life itself. In the same way visitors will leave with a complete sense of calm rejuvenation, as if they have imbibed these sacred waters themselves. Not far from the centre of Ubud, the property sits atop the hills overlooking the Petanu River amid a vast sea of green. In this pastoral scene, water flows through the resort, irrigating operational rice terraces.
Inspired by traditional Balinese villages, each villa features natural stone finishes and thatched rooftops, but are furnished to ensure five-star comfort. Tropical palms hang over your private pool as you relax on your Balinese daybed enjoying the view of the surrounding lush hills and rice paddies and a chorus of birdsong. Feel free to explore this tranquil setting with a bicycle tour through rice paddies – if your timing is right, you may even be able to learn how to plant and harvest this vital crop.
Afterwards, enjoy a picnic lunch on a boat as you drift along the gentle waters of a peaceful lagoon in a tropical garden setting. This picnic pastime is the perfect opportunity to spend quality time with a loved one. Savor a basket full of light bites and take plenty of romantic photos together during this delightful rendezvous on the water.
For the wellbeing of your body, visit the Chaya Spa at Kamandalu and treat yourself to a massage and a treatment at the beauty spa.
As night begins to fall, watch the sun set over the green valley and take pleasure in a private dinner under the stars surrounded by flickering candles and the timeless ambiance of Alun-Alun. Feast upon a six-course menu of culinary precision prepared by the resort’s chef at a live cooking station. This intimate dining experience includes the release of a pair of birds to symbolise your shared destiny as a couple. To maintain an element of exclusivity, only one dinner booking is accepted per day for what promises to be an evening of pure perfection.
