Indonesia » Bali » Canggu » Villa Mana - an elite haven



The six-bedroom Villa Mana is perfect for extended families or groups of friends who appreciate loads of breathing space. For this is contemporary tropical living on a large scale, with 3.7 metre high ceilings, swathes of kilim-covered black concrete floors, and enough multi-level living space to swallow up a crowd. Supplementing the formal living area are deep verandahs and a huge roof terrace with over-sized daybeds sheltering under a rice-vista pergola. A 17-metre swimming pool, media room with pool table and Xbox, wading pool, and football pitch will keep kids happily entertained, and the beach is just three kilometres away.

Location

Villa Mana is tucked into the rural village of Babakan in the Canggu area, just a ten minute drive from the world-class surf breaks and legendary sunsets of Echo Beach where there’s a handful of shops, cafés and restaurants. The villa’s setting, in amongst the rice fields, is attractive and beautifully serene, offering an insight into the way of life and the traditions of the rural Balinese. Seminyak – with its many excellent restaurants and shops - is only a 25-minute drive (10km) from the villa.

Echo Beach 4 km
Batubelig Beach 6 km
Seminyak 10 km
Kuta 14 km
Ngurah Rai Airport (DPS) 17 km
Ubud 27 km

About Canggu

Canggu has become the collective name for a number of villages (including Berawa, Tegal Gundul, Tiyingtukul, Pererenan, Nelayan and Babakan), which, until very recently, could still be described as a sleepy coastal locale. It's now one of Bali's coolest districts.

Here, amongst the rice fields which extend all the way down to the beach, you will not only find some of the most luxurious private residences on the island, but also a great selection of eclectic restaurants, cafes, bakeries, boutiques and beach bars – especially along Jalan Batu Bolong, which runs right down to the beach. Popular spots include Finns Beach Club, Old Mans, La Laguna, The Lawn and Ji @ Bale Sutra.

Canggu is also an area that most surfers will know about, with reef swells that are larger than those you will find further south in Kuta and Seminyak. Swimming isn’t advisable however as the rips can be dangerous, but there are plenty of other things to do from horseback riding to cooking classes. Finns Recreation Club (for which many holiday villas in the area include guest membership) offers social and leisure amenities, including Splash waterpark, Bounce trampoline centre, Strike bowling, a state-of-the art gym, a 25m swimming pool and a tennis and squash centre.

Along the coast to the north of Canggu is Pura Tanah Lot; a sea temple perched high on a craggy wave-lashed rock and probably the most photographed sight in Bali. Sophisticated Seminyak, a few kilometres south of Canggu, lays claim to the highest concentration of independent fine-dining restaurants on the island, including Sarong, La Lucciola and Ku Dé Ta, together with a wide choice of chic cocktail bars, exciting nightclubs, lavish spas and elegant boutiques.

About Bali

Bali is Indonesia’s most popular tourist location and is considered one of Asia's premier tropical island destinations. Steeped in history and renowned for its artistic way of life, Bali is a peaceful contrast to some of the more frantic destinations Asia has to offer.

The inner peace and creative talents of the Balinese has attracted artists the world over fascinated by local dancers, silversmiths, wood carvers, potters and painters that seem to pervade throughout the island. The abundant verdant fields and surrounding sea have long supplied Bali with an easy surplus of food leaving time for life’s more artistic past times. As a result everything in Bali has a creative and religious element centred around the local Banjar (residents association) – little, adorned temples are everywhere, doors are covered in intricate carvings, huge kites ward off evil spirits and colourful roadside ceremonies bring traffic to a standstill.

Bali is a popular destination principally from Australia and Asia but also from all over Europe. The island welcomes thousands of visitors each year to a relaxing lifestyle, stunning beaches, world class surf, vibrant villages, and spectacular scenery all with an exquisite tropical climate. Located approximately two hours’ flying time from Singapore the island is serviced by an international airport at Denpasar with direct flights to and from many major cities in Asia, Europe and Australia and many more via Jakarta, Indonesia’s capital.

The island offers an impressive range of leisure and lifestyle amenities including world-class golf courses, wonderful seascapes for surfing, diving and snorkelling as well as luxurious spas, chic boutiques, tropical forests, towering volcanoes and international cuisine.

Our review   Overall Rating: 8.50


We absolutely loved Villa Mana. Not only were the views amazing, its openness liberating and the design super-chic – an architectural dream – but it was also very comfortable, with so many places to lie back and relax, even when the villa is full. Sofas and loungers seemed supersized, and were the perfect accompaniments to sleeping and reading or languidly watching the farmers hard at work in their paddy fields.

We enjoyed bathing in the master bathroom with its glass roof, river-stone walls and smooth circular tub that’s big enough for two. We felt the villa was excellently set up for the extended family, large groups or even a couple of families (but do note that using the showers in the ground floor ensuites involves climbing into the tubs, which might not be ideal for some elderly guests).

The twin bedroom is conveniently located opposite the entertainment room, which is a big self-contained space with squashy sofas that could be used as much as a playroom (there’s a box full of toys plus a pool table) as a home cinema room (plenty of DVDs supplied). Sliding doors open from here onto the enclosed rear garden where there’s a meandering 2ft-deep pool that can be enjoyed by little paddlers.

The lawn at the bottom of the garden is encircled by paddy fields and felt like the stage of a Shakespearean theatre. The garden is enclosed (parents sigh of relief), and kids will just love it here. Villa Mana's staff aim to please, and they succeed. The chef is excellent and the manager is efficient and knowledgeable. With the kitchen being at the centre of the villa, we were always aware of the staff and felt that total privacy was slightly compromised (at least on the ground floor).

The guest on our home wares tour were blown away by the beauty of the location, spacious and dry lounging area and of particular enjoyment was the pool. Our guest enjoyed swimming in the infinity pool morning, noon and night. We had a traditional meal for our " welcoming dinner" - this was absolutely delicious and beautifully presented - Indo style. Whilst we spent the majority of our days shopping and resorting, it was always nice to come home to our villa to relax with swim in house spa treatments and cocktails.

Thank Villa Mana for the most amazing family holiday ever! The view looking out over paddy fields every morning for our yoga was spectacular and we were constantly spoilt by the amazing staff especially Ayu, Putu, Bayu. The chef Putu was incredibly talented and such a kind and warm hearted guy.The food he prepared was so delicious and the feast he prepared for our last night where we were joined by 3 friends was out of this world!

Just four days from our scheduled arrival, we had our flight to Bali from Australia cancelled. Some quick rearranging saw us arrive at Villa Mana as scheduled - and all of the stress of our flight melted away as we entered this amazing home. Made, Putu and the team here made us feel instantly relaxed with some appetizers, a drink and welcome smile. And so it continued for the whole week of our stay. Our children have virtual lived in the pool, sustained by "the best toasted cheese sandwich ever" (according to our six years old). Meanwhile the adults have enjoyed amazing food, culminating in the Balinese specialty Babi Guling. From our morning coffee to the end of our evenings, the staff have gone out of their way to make this one of the most relaxed and enjoyed holiday ever. At Villa Mana, time stands still, nothing else matters and your soul feels rejuvenated by the amazing spirit, warmth and generosity that this very special piece of Bali exudes. We leave with fond memories.

What an incredible 10 days we have had. 2 families with kids stayed at Villa Mana for 9 night and we absolutely loved this place and would definitely come back. The staff were amazing and couldn't do enough for us. The meals were all fabulous and they were always willing to accommodate any of our requests. They were incredible in assisting when one of us fell unwell, organizing the doctor and sending staff to get medication. Thanks to Made and his team for everything and we will be back soon.

  Overall Rating: 1.00


We had a great time at the villa as 3 families with kids. The staff could not have more attentive, and the quality of food was excellent. The chef cooked everything we asked for and went beyond our request even at short notice. Every staff worked in the villa and the staff even come by bike to collect us when we get stuck at Echo Beach without taxi at New Year. We would definitely return and want to thank Made, Ayu, Bayu, and the rest for making this such a great holiday for us all.

We absolutely loved our stay at Villa Mana. It was so luxurious. From our fantastic daily welcome by Made, to the best local food cooked by Putu and his team we were treated so well by all the villa staff. The outlook over the rice paddies is spectacular; we didn't want to get out of the infinity pool; and although we tried I still don't think we managed to make use of all the day bed relaxation spaces around the villa! The bedrooms and bathrooms were incredibly spacious, great views and beautiful decor. Just make sure you bring your ear plugs for the morning temple prayers over the road. We just wished we could stay forever!

  Overall Rating: 9.90


All the staff were fantastic and really made our holiday special. The chef was amazing. So amazing that we ended up eating at the villa more often than not! He was especially helpful with my gluten free daughter and the needs/wants of the 3 year olds! The villa manager couldn't have been more helpful, even driving the men to the surf. We miss Villa Mana!

Rooms

Bedroom: 6
Sleeping Capacity: 21
Location: Bali

Villa Mana is defined by its open living spaces, private enclaves and sweeping views. From the moment you walk through the villa’s tall wooden gates, you are enshrined in privacy and greeted with a breathtaking view of the lush rice paddies beyond.

On the ground floor of the villa are four bedrooms, an entertainment room and a study as well as an open-sided well-equipped modern kitchen and huge living space that flows from the middle of the house out towards the pool and then on around each end of it. Oversized sofas beneath soaring ceilings look very much at home in the central sitting area and offer plenty of comfort even if the villa is full. To one side is a long dining table for 12 whilst outside on the decked wooden pool terrace are a further dining table for 12, circular loungers, sunbeds and a couple of intimately placed seating areas.

Each of the four bedrooms on the ground floor is spacious and comes with air conditioning, cupboards, electronic safes and floor-to-ceiling glass sliding doors onto either the pool terrace or rear garden. Three of the bedrooms (including a pool-view master) feature king-size beds and ensuite bathrooms whilst the fourth is twin-bedded with a bathroom across the corridor. Each bathroom features cement-moulded washbasins and tubs, rain showers and a tropical, outside-in design.

The twin bedroom is located next to an air conditioned study.  The large entertainment room with satellite TV/DVD player, projector screen, sound system and toy box is conveniently located opposite the twin.

A floating staircase leads from the rear of the kitchen to the roof terrace, which is furnished with circular cushioned loungers, a dining table with bench seating for 12 and a cushioned corner sitting area with pergola roof. Off this terrace are two identical air conditioned master bedrooms with king-size beds, sliding glass doors to the front, a cushioned screen wall in black and gold silk, and ensuite bathrooms with centre-island cement-moulded washbasins, Japanese suar-wood bathtubs, mirrored wardrobes and rain showers.
