A luxurious and laid back hideaway, Mandala Desa is the ideal destination for those wishing to experience authentic Bali up close and personal. Set on the edge of a traditional Balinese village with endless views of green rice paddies, the villa is within easy reach of Ubud’s many shops and galleries yet feels a world away. Relax in your private sanctuary while outside your window lies the living postcard of panoramic rice field views with farmers working their land and herons and kingfishers flying overhead.
We warmly invite you to enter a beautiful oasis of just four accommodations that is everything a vacation home should be comfortable, unpretentious, with delicious food and staff that genuinely wishes to give each guest magical holiday memories.
Located in a small village, Mandala Desa is in an area known for all sorts of artistic and cultural activities. The villages of Celuk, Sukawati, Batubulan, Batuan, Singapadu are almost mandatory stops on every visitors itinerary, each one famous for a different craft: silver and gold jewelry, stonecarvings, woodcarvings, masks and painting.
There is no more enchanting way to experience Bali than in your private villa. Designed to integrate indoor/outdoor living, each villa has an air-conditioned 5m x 6m bedroom with Javanese marble floors and a carved four poster Balinese bed draped with netting. It is furnished with textiles, art and antiques from Bali and Southeast Asia. The indoor vanity and toilet open to a spacious garden bath with oversized terrazzo tub.
The outdoor sitting areas seem to float over the lotus pond. A 7m x 3m terrace with its tumbled marble floor has comfortable sofa and chairs, while across a wooden bridge lies a 2m x 2m lounging pavilion. This is an idyllic spot to have breakfast, read or daydream as you overlook endless rice fields.
The two suites are located in a two storey cottage next to the swimming pool. The view suite is upstairs and offers a spectacular view of the surrounding rice paddies from the terrace which functions as an outdoor living room. The bedroom is a spacious 5m x 6m, air-conditioned and furnished with hand carved queen size bed, furniture and art from Indonesia. The indoor bath is fit with a custom terrazzo bathtub, tumbled marble and coconut wood vanity.
The garden suite is similar in size and has a large marble bathroom that opens to a small garden. The terrace is spacious and surrounded by bright heliconias and other tropical plants. As in our other accommodations, both suites offer wireless internet access for guests with laptops.
