Villa Mana’s six, very spacious, air-conditioned bedrooms feature high ceilings, walls of padded silk, polished-concrete floors, rattan and wood furniture, and sliding glass doors onto the gardens or terrace. Five are furnished with king-size beds, while on the ground floor, opposite the games room/home cinema, is a twin bedded room. All have large ensuite bathrooms with twin basins of polished concrete and statement bathtubs big enough for two.
Two of Villa Mana’s master bedrooms are positioned at opposite ends of the upper floor for optimal privacy. These huge rooms are accessed through Japanese-style sliding screen doors, their beds positioned towards a wall of glass doors opening onto the roof terrace. Artfully concealed behind padded silk panels are the ensuite bathrooms, with walk-in rain showers and Japanese-influenced suar wood bathtubs overlooking the roof garden.
Opening onto the pool terrace below is the third master bedroom, its elongated ensuite bathroom features a two-storey river-stone wall towering towards the sky.
Alongside the ground-floor master room are two ensuite guest bedrooms each with sliding glass doors onto the rear garden. On the opposite side of the villa’s ground floor, and opening onto the pool terrace, is a twin-bedded room, slightly smaller than the other five and with a bathroom lying just across the passageway. Conveniently placed opposite the entertainment room, this makes a good kids bedroom.
Villa Mana – Canggu 6 bedroom luxury villa, BaliElite Havens
Villa Mana is super-sized. Its generous proportions are obvious from the moment you cross the shallow pool marking its zen-serene entrance. Soaring ceilings, walls of glass opening onto expansive terraces, multiple media rooms – the sheer amount of living space is peerless, and completely in keeping with the villa’s magnificent 180-degree rice-field panorama.
Uncompromisingly modern, with clean lines, contemporary furnishings and a strong colour scheme, Villa Mana makes abundant use of local natural materials, with striking walls of rough river stone, woven rattan and tropical woods. Brightly coloured kilim rugs and plushly upholstered sofas scattered across the black concrete floors bring boho-chic to the minimalist interiors. This is indoor-outdoor living at its best, focused on the 17-metre infinity pool and ‘football-pitch’ garden below. Luxury extras like Bose sound systems, iPod docks in every room and bathtubs big enough for two raise the bar on villa living.
With six large bedroom suites and seemingly acres of multi-level open and enclosed living areas, Villa Mana is perfect for extended families or groups of friends who love holidaying together yet appreciate having their own breathing space and the support of full-time staff, including resident cook to take care of all meals. With its large lawn, rooftop terrace and glorious rice-field outlook, the villa is also an idyllic wedding venue.
One of the delights of staying at Villa Mana is exploring the traditional villages in the area and dipping into local rural and religious life. Six bicycles are available for guests to use, providing a healthy way to visit the black-sand beach and famed surf breaks just three kilometres away.
