Even before I mention anything about Mandala Desa, I want to first begin with the owner - Jacinta! She is professional, committed, resourceful, warm, super sweet and honest. We were offered a pick-up from Sanur by Mandala Desa and were expecting the driver to be there. But to our surprise Jacinta accompanied Ketut (the driver) all the way from Ubud. That was a very nice gesture and instantly made us feel welcomed.
Mandala Desa is located in Sukawati, about 20 mins away from Ubud. We usually love staying in the buzz of the town and but wanted to try out something different. Hence we decided on Mandala Desa. My husband rented a bike and we drove back and forth from Ubud and Sukawati atleast four times a day. At first it I was a little scared about the commute but started loving it soon enough. Driving along the quaint scenic roads made me feel like a true Balinese. We also stopped at the nearby temple in Sukawati to watch the dance rehearsals at night.
Our stay at Mandala Desa was blissful. The villa we stayed in was beautiful, the decor tasteful and the staff was very warm and helpful. We had a outdoor shower and it was an amazing feeling to bathe while hearing the birds chirping away. The patio was surrounded by a pond had lots of fishes in it. My husband and I fed them during breakfast time! Everything about Mandala Desa made us feel peaceful and calm. Highly recommend you to stay here.
