Mandapa, a Ritz-Carlton Reserve
Lovers on the hunt for the perfect spot for a dreamy proposal getaway need look no further than Mandapa, a Ritz-Carlton Reserve. Nestled in one of the most romantic places on earth with the Ayung River floating peacefully alongside, Mandapa is a secluded paradise and a tranquil sanctuary for travelers looking to celebrate love, and the property’s Ultimate Romance Package offers couples a fairy-tale stay.
A three-night experience, guests start their days with romantic breakfasts in bed facing the lush forest while listening to the birds singing before heading out to explore Ubud. Mandapa’s Classic Vintage Volkswagen Tour takes lovers on an unwinding journey through the incredibly beautiful countryside, passing the rice field of Ceking village, visiting the Sebatu water temple and the historical Gunung Kawi. A romantic picnic is set up along the way to complete the experience. During their stay, couples will also relax and unwind with Mandapa’s Royal Spice Ceremony, a spa treatment to ensure deep relaxation for the lovebirds.
When it comes time to pop the question, guests are invited to enjoy Mandapa’s Private Dinner at The Cliff at Sawah. Resting on a private deck at the cliff-edge of the Reserve Valley with sweeping views of the majestic river, the Cliff at Sawah offers a magical backdrop for a remarkable one-of-a-kind proposal adorned with candles and flowers. After popping the question, couples can indulge in an exclusive eight-course degustation menu showcasing the rich flavors of Indonesian cuisine and an authentic “back to the roots” experience by celebrating traditional dining customs in Bali – ending the night under the stars.
