Villa | 6 bedrooms | sleeps 12
Overlooking the swaying grasslands of Bali’s terraced rice fields, the Batu Karu Mountains and even the sea, six-bedroomed Villa Mana is not only spectacularly sited but also perfectly designed for admiring this magnificent 180 degree panorama. Subtle glimpses of the scenery can be caught from the dark depths of the glorious infinity swimming pool or from one of the lavish loungers scattered around it. But from the extensive roof terrace above, these subtleties disappear; circular cushioned sofas shamelessly soak up the scorching sunshine as the raw panorama of the rice paddies is unobstructively revealed. By dusk, sunset views from up here are so stunning and cocktail-inducing that you are left speechless as the fibre optic illumination of the stars takes over the sky.
Villa Mana’s generosity of space is celebrated via three levels and through a tropical, modern, open-plan design that creates few barriers between the indoors and the out. Soaring ceilings, deep terraces, sliding floor-to-ceiling glass doors and features such as a floating staircase, a massive roof terrace and an infinity pool only serve to continue the flow of boundaries and make the property feel bigger than it already is. Added to this is the liberal use of natural materials that give the property bags of character and enrich its chic tropical style: deep walls are coated with rough-hewn river stone, dark panelled wood, rattan or glass whilst the entire floor is poured black cement. Interiors are modern and minimal, although lavishly large sofas, private relaxing areas and multiple dining locations place a focus not only on design but on comfort too.
Deep, decked steps sweep theatrically down from the pool terrace to a large green lawn, bordered on three sides by paddy fields. Football and croquet are just two sports that can be played here. It's also a functional place for energetic children to let off steam. Villa Mana fully supports families – there’s a trolley full of pool inflatables, baskets brimming over with toys, and a home cinema – with plenty of spots for privacy, peace, or playfulness. The villa is fully staffed and the cook well-versed in both Indonesian and western cuisine which is prepared in the fully-equipped kitchen from provisions charged at cost on guest account.

The Bali region
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.
Canggu is actually a small fishing village, but has become the collective name for a number of villages (including Berawa, Tegal Gundul, Tiyingtukul, Pererenan, Nelayan, Babakan ) which, despite lying within a developing area, can still be described as a sleepy coastal locale.
Here, amongst the rice fields which extend all the way down to the beach, you will find some of the most luxurious private residences on Bali. It is also an area that most surfers will know about, with reef swells that are larger than those you will find in Kuta further south. Swimming isn't advisable however as the rips can be dangerous. Nearby sporting facilities include the Canggu Club (of which many holiday villas in the area include guest membership), offering social and leisure amenities, including 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 the Nirwana Bali Golf Club which was designed by Greg Norman and is frequently voted the number one golf course in Asia. Next to this 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.
