Bonding in Bali

Some seek a retreat that takes them off the grid, while others desire to connect with a culture whose traditions live on in modern times. Well, how about both?

Bali is calling you. Can you hear it? Nestled on a stunning cliff top with tranquil views over the azure waters of the Indian Ocean, The Ritz-Carlton Club includes six stylish dining venues, an indulgent and exotic marine-inspired Spa, and plenty of family fun and adventure.

Featuring a range of nature-based, green-learning activities, the Mini Explorers program provides programming for the young experience collector to become immersed in the natural wonders and rich cultural traditions of Ubud. Based on a four-pillar program—water, land, environmental responsibility, and culture—Mini Explorers features an organic farm and an educational Mandapa Camp tucked away from the rest of the resort. Tailored for children or the entire family to enjoy, the camp offers a chance to learn new skills, make new friends, and take part in a wide range of creative activities that share aspects of Balinese culture through art, music, and games. Signature activities include Camping and Bonfire Night at the grass lawn beside the camp, all under supervision, as well as Star Gazing with a telescope.

Sprawling two- and three-bedroom riverfront villas are tucked inside the sanctuary of Mandapa, a Ritz-Carlton Reserve, and are idyllic for a family holiday. Each villa is surrounded by tropical forest and the Ayung River, and comes with a large private pool.
