We at Mandala Desa are delighted to share our love of Bali. If you wish to experience the gentle pace of village life and vibrant cultural traditions, you have come to the right place.

I am since 8 years the blessed, passionate and happy owner of Mandala Desa, a small Boutique Resort.
I have studied Facility Management and after that I worked a few years on a 5* cruise ship as officer in the hotel department. During these years, I gained a lot of experience, traveled a lot and got to know many different places and people.
At Mandala Desa I enjoy my work and the contact with guests from all over the world.
I run Mandala Desa together with my wonderful and very friendly staff. Almost no request is too much for them. In total we have 10 people to look after our guests and the premises. We have a gardener to maintain our very big tropical garden of around 3500 sqm including our organic garden where we grow a lot of vegetables, fruits and herbs which we use in our kitchen, we have security to keep an eye on the property during the night and for some maintenance, we have a driver and for the rest service staff; involved with preparing delicious complimentary breakfast and afternoon tea, lunch, dinner and drinks, serving guests, housekeeping and administration.
All of them are Balinese and most of them live in the neighborhood.
We have in total 5 accommodations. Which gives us the opportunity to give all our guests personal attention and make them feel at home and give guests the feeling that they stay at an almost private villa. We can house a maximum of 12-15 adults.
Mandala Desa is located in Batuan, Sukawati. Around 9 km south of the busy and touristic city center of Ubud. Our guests are always happy with our quiet, green and serene location, as down town Ubud is getting every year more hectic. At Mandala Desa guests can still experience how Bali used to be. As things don't change here so fast and because we are surrounded by beautiful rice fields and the traditional remote village life, yet surrounded by art craft villages and many highlights of Bali, such as beautiful temples, a nice waterfall, the famous Sukawati art market, a hidden canyon, the Bali Zoo and Bali Bird Park, Bali Safari and Marine Park, etc. In short: enough to do here during your stay!
We provide free transport to and from Ubud, so if guests like to go to Ubud, it is very easy and convenient to get there. We also provide tours and are happy to arrange any kind of activities for our guests such as a bicycle tour, rafting, hiking a volcano, silver- or cooking workshops, etc.
Our guests have often called this place 'a paradise', 'outstanding', 'beautiful', 'peaceful' and 'amazing'. They have also told us that the pictures don't do any justice to the natural beauty of the actual site.
It is of course also possible to book all our 5 accommodations if you plan for example a wedding, a special birthday party, a company retreat, a yoga retreat or family reunions.
Mandala Desa is a perfect place to unwind, de-stress and refresh and to inhale the beauty of the Island of the Gods.
If you like to have anymore information or if you have any special requests, please let us know.
We hope we can welcome you at our beautiful boutique resort and let you enjoy the beauty of Bali and Mandala Desa and the friendliness of our staff!
