I spend more than 1 week on Mandala Desa and I certainly want to come back. I couldn’t believe what I saw when I arrived at Mandala Desa. A magical quiet picturesque resort, located in the middle of the rice fields in a little rural village. I loved my view site room, my huge bed decorated with flowers. Every morning I received breakfast at my balcony and I could overlook the green rice fields and could see the volcanos. I experienced Mandala Desa as a place to settle down and to meet the real village life. No cars, no motorbikes, not crowded with tourists, and during the night you could hear the sound of singing frogs and grasshoppers. I was really happy with the facilities they offer. For example; They offer bikes for free, free transport to Ubud and airport transfer. I loved to lounge everyday in the beautiful garden alongside the swimming pool, but there are also active things to do. I liked; my walks around Mandala Desa and being invited by the neighbors to visit their Balinese houses; visiting a traditional medicine man (dukun), cycling through the rice fields and little villages and passing smiling faces; spending hours on the woodcraft market in Sukawati and eating on the night market without seeing any tourist… Of course Ubud and Sanur is also worth to visit and very close by (20 minutes). I was always happy to return afterwards to this quiet place. For me also important to mention are my experience with the owners and their staff. They gave me a very welcome feeling: friendly, helpful and social people. Finally, try the Bubur Ingin. A delicious desert made of black rice, coconut cream and brown sugar!
