While the island of Bali is known for its white sand beaches and blue-azure ocean, once in a while it really pays off to stray away from the shorelines a bit. Skip the sea this time, and head up to Ubud to lose track of time and rejuvenate at the tranquil and ever-picturesque Mandapa, a Ritz-Carlton Reserve.
Idyllically ensconced along the serene Ayung River, the resort takes pride in its exclusive accommodation comprising 35 lavish suites and 25 private pool villas. Mandapa successfully combines luxury and class with nature-inspired and local values in its impeccable design, using sustainably sourced materials that blend seamlessly with the surroundings. The rice paddies are not only a beautiful view to behold, but also are a source of quality ingredients.
The concept isn’t only applied on the design, but also on other aspects too. Mandapa draws inspiration from traditional Balinese villages, emphasising the significance of wellness and nature in daily life. The menus at Mandapa’s dining outlets and programmes are designed to be health-conscious, while at the same time delectable and appetising. The Spa at Mandapa is also filled with elaborate wellness and lifestyle programmes, inspired by detox, nutrition and healing, among other elements.
The latest addition to The Spa that is perfect for a revitalising island getaway is the emotional detox with Véronique Ficheux, a wellness expert whose unique approach includes neuro-linguistic programming, emotional freedom techniques and theta healing. The emotional detox programme comes in three different packages: emotional freedom techniques, matrix reimprinting and peak performance coaching – each catering to different emotional needs. Contact The Spa to learn more and find out which one suits you the best, and be prepared to leave feeling refreshed.
