Incorporating Elements of a Traditional Balinese Commitment Ceremony, the Experience is Perfect for Any Couple Wishing to Celebrate Their Love and Create Lasting Memories
UBUD, BALI – August 20, 2018 – Drawing inspiration from local Balinese tradition as well as its dreamy location amid the lush jungle of Ubud, Mandapa, a Ritz-Carlton Reserve is pleased to introduce Enchanting Love Journey – a romantic experience combining a traditional Balinese commitment ceremony and a sumptuous private dining experience for two. The Enchanting Love Journey encourages couples to express their love for one another while creating lasting memories of their romantic journey together in Bali.
Before the ceremony, the couple will be given a canvas on which to write messages affirming their commitment and love for one another. They will then be ushered – along with the canvas – to the resort temple for a Grahastha ritual, a purification ceremony that aims to cleanse the body, mind and soul followed by a guided wedding ritual. Grahastha is derived from the Sanskrit language meaning “time to marry” and signifies a stage of the Balinese circle of life where one is ready to start a family. During the ritual, the canvas with their affirmations will be blessed by a priest with the hope that whatever they wrote will come true.
The Enchanting Love Journey experience is perfect for any couple, whether they wish to use it as a simple wedding ceremony, a renewal of vows or simply an expression of love. After the ceremony, the couple will be able to take home the canvas containing their messages for one another, and a dedicated photographer will capture the procession to create lasting memories that the couple can treasure.
To complete the love journey experience, couples will enjoy a private romantic dining experience by the resort’s rice field, with a six-course menu carefully hand-selected by our Executive Chef, Maurizio Bombini. The price of the Enchanting Love Journey starts at IDR 6,000,000++/ couple
