Nature, Beauty & Unique Wedding Memories in Mandapa
Have you ever been to a little town in Bali called Ubud? Have you ever experienced this secluded island paradise where the hills are lush and rolling and the Ayung River creates a unique sense of peace as you marvel at how luxury and nature have somehow merged into one to create the perfect combination?
There are some places in this world which are so beautiful it seems almost impossible to find just the right words to describe the experience when you attempt to retell the story. One of these places is Ubud, a place which holds many of Bali’s best kept secrets, and one of them is the Mandapa.
About the Mandapa, A Ritz-Carlton Reserve
The Mandapa is the third in the Ritz-Carlton Reserve collection and is more of a boutique resort with less than 100 rooms, which makes it perfect for smaller, more intimate weddings. The Mandapa has been designed to replicate and pay homage to the local Balinese village while still holding true to some of the more modern elements and Ritz-Carlton service standards.
Inspired by nature and the surrounding culture, what makes the Mandapa unique is that it has been designed around four key elements, which are the Ayung River for water, the temples, the working rice fields and the school because Mandapa has a kid club with a wide range of natural wonders that a typical village child will experience growing up. There aren’t many resorts quite like this one, and that in itself makes the Mandapa one of a kind.
For a more personalized experience, a butler or patih as they are known in the local Indonesian dialect, awaits your arrival in place of the traditional reception area. This delightful butler will build a rapport with you from the moment you and your guests arrive, and will then serve as your one of a kind guide throughout your entire stay at the resort and go the extra mile to ensure that all your needs are met as long as you are a guest at the Mandapa.
At the Mandapa, you will be spoilt for choice of wedding venue options. From the Ayung River, to the Temple Lawn, Rice Terrace, Wantilan and Villas, each location is just as beautiful and unique as the next that you would wish you could host your wedding in all of them! The Mandapa provides the couple with a celebrant, wedding decorations, a bridal bouquet, a boutonniere for the groom, commemorative wedding certificate, a printed liturgy and Balinese Rindik musicians that bring the wedding to life as you and your guests dance the night away.
The Ritz-Carlton has always been famed for its high levels of luxury and service, and you can be sure that the Mandapa is no different. Say your wedding vows in this heavenly-like location while the never-ending, gentle bubbling sounds of the river cocoon you with an air of bliss unlike anything you’ve ever experienced before. The Mandapa is, in a word, magical and truly worthy of the phrase “once in a lifetime moment to remember”.
