Spa details revealed for Ritz-Carlton Reserve in Bali jungle

by Helen Andrews | 07 Aug 2014

The Ritz-Carlton Reserve property in Bali – Mandapa – is set to open later this year in the district of Ubud, famous for its arts and crafts, with views of terraced rice paddy fields adjacent to the village temple, lush gardens, meditative spaces and a spa.

The 60-guestroom reserve – the third global Ritz-Carlton Reserve – will open at the end of 2014 with a 1,257sq m (13,530sq ft) spa situated at the edge of the jungle. The wellness facility will include two standard treatment rooms, two couples’ suites, one VIP suite, a mani-pedi room and two express treatment rooms. The property will house a rooftop vitality pool with air and water massage jets, in addition to separate male and female thermal suites – each featuring a sauna, steamroom and ice fountains.

The spa products will be supplied by ESPA, however the types of treatment have not been confirmed yet. It is still not clear whether the spa will be operated in-house or by another company.

Architects for the project are from PT Bali Anugrah Dewata and interior design is by Jeffrey Wilkes of DesignWilkes – the firm that’s renowned for its design at the Mandarin Oriental Bangkok, Thailand. The Indonesian-based Lumina Group fitted the lighting for the facility.

The Ritz-Carlton Reserve collection includes Phulay Bay in Thailand and Dorado Beach in Puerto Rico. Reserves in development, in addition to the Mandapa, include Pearl Island in Panama, Los Cabos in Mexico and Tamuda Bay in Morocco.

Pool and spa equipment specialists Barr + Wray provided the fittings for the spa, in addition to those for two other Ritz-Carlton properties as part of a contract totalling over £1m (US$1.6m, €1.2m). The Hong Kong and Dubai divisions of Barr + Wray have been responsible for providing the heat experiences at the Ritz-Carlton Abu Dhabi Grand Canal and another Ritz-Carlton development in Bangalore.

“It is extremely heartening to be working with such a high-profile hotelier on three major developments overseas,” said group managing director for Barr + Wray, Alister MacDonald.

The Mandapa Reserve will be one of the 20 new hotels and resorts Ritz-Carlton plans to open before 2016.
