One of only three Ritz-Carlton Reserves in the world, Mandapa is special, very special. Twenty-five gorgeous private villas are nestled within rolling rice paddies close to the mighty Ayung River and each is kitted out with everything a luxury hotel connoisseur could demand: heated infinity pool (the ones in the one-bedroom villas are a whopping 30sq m), plush daybeds and an extravagant bathroom. Relax under the tropical outdoor shower or soak in the deep, room-for-two bathtub, which either overlooks treetops or lush greenery, and lather up with the complimentary range of organic local toiletries. If you’re feeling especially lazy — or especially indulgent — you can even call your personal butler to run it for you. ritzcarlton.com
