Mandapa, a Ritz-Carlton Reserve, is the second property the hotel group has opened on the Indonesian island since the turn of the year, but its latest property is something entirely different from the Ritz-Carlton Bali in Sawangan, Nusa Dua.

Located in Ubud, a region considered the cultural and spiritual heart of the island, the hotel is designed to blend seamlessly into the landscape where the streams of the Ayung river flow into the rainforest. Every element of Ritz Carlton's Reserve brand, of which there are now three across the globe, comes from sustainably sourced materials, and at Mandapa Reserve natural materials from local Balinese villages can be found throughout the property.

A total of 35 luxury suites and 25 villas with private pools are available for high-end incentive groups. Each of the four categories of suite comes with private terraces looking over the remarkable rice paddies and onto the rainforest, while the five categories of villas, ranging in size from 30m2 to 172m2, include separate indoor living rooms and private pools.

For dining, groups can pick from menus inspired by Indonesian, Mediterranean and European cuisine at one of Reserve's four restaurants and lounges. The signature restaurant is Kubu at Mandapa, which includes nine private cocoons overlooking the Ayung river. In The Library, guests can enjoy afternoon tea or cocktails at sunset. The hotel's new concept of private dining is called Dining Beyond, which allows groups to eat from tailor-made menus in special and exclusive locations around the Reserve.

A spa with eight treatment rooms, a riverfront yoga studio and vitality pool complete a unique offering for incentive groups.

Wi-fi: free throughout
