Villa Mana - Lounge style

Living areas

Villa Mana is a party-giver’s dream.  The huge open-plan living area spilling seamlessly onto the expanse of pool terrace provides masses of space for formal or casual gatherings.  For candlelit dinners, a substantial teak dining table seats 12 guests in comfort.  Tucked around the corner on the poolside terrace is a breakfast table with benches also seating 12.  Separated from the living area by a river-rock wall is the well-stocked kitchen with its long island bar creating a stage for theatrical culinary feats.

There’s further entertainment space upstairs on the enormous roof terrace:  a third dining table for 12, plenty of sun loungers and, within a slatted-roof pergola, a series of super-sized mattresses for reclining in the shade.

On this same level you can escape from the sun into the comfortably furnished air-conditioned TV room/study – there’s a jumbo beanbag for serious sprawlers.  But the main entertainment hub is on the ground floor – a large air-conditioned room furnished with an over-sized sofas and equipped with TV, DVD player, Xbox, table football, and shelves groaning with books, games and toys.

Outside, sun loungers and daybeds surround the deck of the 17-metre swimming pool and a double hammock is slung from an ancient frangipani tree – one of five that shade the sundeck.  Grand, amphitheatre-style wooden steps beyond the pool lead past a comfy half-moon-shaped pergola tucked into the terrace slope, down to a large flat lawn bordered by rice fields and set up for football with goalposts in place.

Villa Mana – Canggu 6 bedroom luxury villa, Bali Elite 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.
