I held my wedding at the Mandira in August, on the recommendation of my wedding planner. It was just beautiful.
We stayed in the courtyard room. It was very nice, had a large courtyard with a huge bath and shower. (also an inside bathroom with shower). There is a table and 1 chair in the courtyard. Didn't use it. Be ok if your a smoker.
There was a step up to the bed. Didn't really like that,and the bed was a bit hard.
Our friends stayed in a family room. That was upstairs and was clean and comfortable. The room was quite large. The only thing they didn't like about it, was it didn't have a balcony.
My brother stayed in a deluxe room. That was very nice, with a DVD player and an outdoor bathroom.
I will definately stay in the deluxe in future.
I have been to Bali over 30 times and usually stay in Tuban or Kuta.
I definately like Legian better. Think there are more restaurants and shops.
I love it that the Mandira is opposite the beach. The hotel grounds are lovely.
The bar overlooking the ocean is great. Have happy hour every day. I think beer and cocktails - buy 2 get 1 free.
Its not cheap to eat and drink at the hotel. For Bali, its dear. But compared to Australia, its cheap. I like the fact that the taxes are included in the prices and not extra.
The food is very nice. The gado gado is the best I have eaten in Bali and the pizzas are really good.
If you walk from the path alongside the Parasol directly to the beach - there is a guy named Chilli that sells drinks out of his esky. He is so friendly (aren't they all). He will get you a chair and ask what drink you want. You can't beat - having a beer with family or friends and watching the most beautiful sunsets ever. He gets really busy at sunset times, but he will always find you a chair. I think the beers are 12 000 rp. You just [pay when you leave. I really enjoyed having a beer watching the sunsets. Recommend it.
Breakfast at the Parasol was great. The food was delicious. A different variety of food everyday. I'm vegetarian and there was always a range of food for me.
To have breakfast at the Parasol, you have to be staying in a deluxe room or better. You also get free internet, coffee and cakes , and cocktails in between certain hours.
I had my wedding at the grassed area near the Parasol restaurant.
The Legian festival was on from 7 th August (day of my wedding) and I was horrified that there would be stalls set up along the path between the hotel and the beach.
It was going to block the view of the ocean. The Manager of the Mandira did all he could to stop them putting a stall in front of where my wedding was being held. After lots of phonecalls and meeting in person with the organisers, they left a gap where the wedding was. I can't thank him enough. It was a big relief. (The festival is the same time every year)
The set up, decorations and flowers for the wedding were just beautiful. .....It bought tears to my eyes. It was just breathtaking.
The price was very reasonable, and you can't get the same atmosphere in Australia.
Yuni is the wedding co-ordinator at the Mandira. She is wonderful. Nothing was too much trouble .Very friendly and helpful. She always answered my e-mails promptly and arranged any extra things I wanted. I also had a wedding planner Jo, from Bali Mystical Weddings. She was fabulous. They both made my wedding so easy to plan and not too stressful.
A lot of my friends said it was the nicest wedding they have been to.The reception was held at the Parasol. We had an Indonesian Buffet. The food was delicious. So much of it.
The staff were fantastic. Especially Pastika. They were all so friendly and helpful. They couldn't do enough for you. A credit to the Mandira.
If you are thinking of getting married at the Mandira - do it.
It was everything we hoped for and more. Just beautiful.
We really were married in Paradise.
My husband I and just love the Mandira.
Have already booked to go back there.
