In the glorious surrounds of the Mandapa Hotel, we enjoyed early evening cocktails at The Library - a lovely open fronted, classically decorated bar within the hotel. One could order an Indonesian special cocktail or from a longer list of classic cocktails. We ordered one...of each. Before the drinks were served, we were given delicious peanut crackers. The cocktails were fantastic - fresh and with just the right amount of kick - and served by friendly staff in a stunning setting, looking out at the jungle and over the hotel pool. A lovely way to start the evening.More

Stopped by at this hotel for an afternoon tea at The Library with my wife during our first visit to this property in Ubud few weeks ago gave us a let down. The quality of pastries were not up to our expectation from a 5...stars property like Ritz Carlton compared with other afternoon/high tea that we have experienced at other 5 stars hotel beside our good knowledge of pastry and bakery product. Our let down was compensated with a peaceful view of the lobby, river, pool and rice field in front the of the restaurant although there is a project covered by a green walls in the middle of rice field. Overall service was good from our arrival up to departure where the staff keep giving their services in every part of the hotel.More

Service is what you come to expect at Mandapa. Excellent. The cocktails weren't mind blowing but they were pretty good. I'm pretty fussy with my cocktails in perfect honesty.
