Villas Indah Manis and Bulan Madu form a hillside sanctuary on Bali’s Bukit Peninsula, home to many of the island’s best beaches. Each with its own swimming pool set in immaculate and generous landscaped gardens, bordered by a tree-lined valley, and with views of the ocean, the two villas make a great choice for weddings and celebrations.
Villa Indah Manis is a glamorous five-bedroom villa with an abundance of facilities for all ages, including a spa, jacuzzi, fitness room, petanque court, pool table and games room with a home theatre. The villa comfortably sleeps ten adults and up to four children in a series of charming pavilions set within the gardens.
Tucked to one side of Villa Indah Manis and accessed through a traditional Balinese gateway, Villa Bulan Madu is a blissful one-bedroomed hideaway that will delight all romantic couples – be they honeymooners or otherwise. As well as a six-metre private swimming pool, this tranquil, self-contained villa features a semi-alfresco lounge, massive open-air bathroom and a dreamy bedchamber.
Both villas are attended by a full complement of professional and discreet staff, including a friendly manager and talented chef, who will cook, clean and pamper their guests with five-star service.
ABOUT VILLA BULAN MADU
Welcome to Bulan Madu, one of Bali’s most romantic one-bedroom villas (Bulan Madu actually means honeymoon), built with your privacy, seclusion and comfort first and foremost in mind. What dreamier place has there ever been in the lovers’ lexicon of myth and fantasy?
In choosing the villa’s location and design we pulled out all the stops, while at the same time providing you with the first class service and amenities you would expect from a five-star villa. Our staff are on hand to cook, clean and drive for you when needed, but they are also masters of discretion thus allowing you to be as free as you like to enjoy the sea breezes and views from your eagle’s eyrie. Rest assured, no one can see in to your hilltop perch apart from the occasional seabird that flies overhead.
In the bedroom, which opens widely onto the private pool and gardens, a king-size bed entices with sheer green and gold drapes. Stepping out of the bedroom over stones bridging a fishpond, you enter the open-sided bathroom, vast in its scope and stunning in its simplicity, with a sunken, petal-filled soaking tub, washbasin and rain shower.
A simple living area offers respite from the sun, while a generous lawn and twin sun loungers sit shaded by frangipani trees next to the swimming pool. Take a dip, rest against the infinity edge, and look across the treetops towards the sunset and the Indian Ocean. If you tire of all this then the soft-cushioned balé bengong (daydreaming pavilion) in the garden is the ideal place to contentedly doze the afternoon away.
Bulan Madu can be rented independently or in conjunction with the five-bedroom Villa Indah Manis next door.

In Bulan Madu’s air-conditioned and fan-cooled bedroom a king-size bed is swathed in golden and green fabric below high, thatched ceilings. The regal semi-open-air (but very private) ensuite bathroom is crafted in cream-coloured stone, featuring a sunken two-person tub and a rain shower, bordered by fishponds, water features and garden views.
The lounge space is open to the back and front, and has magnificent views out over the ocean; it is furnished with three circular armchairs and equipped with a mini bar and iPod docking station. The dining table normally resides on the pool terrace but can easily be moved into the living area should the weather be inclement.
Beyond the living pavilion, a 6m x 4m infinity pool presides over the garden with spectacular views of the neighbouring forest and out to sea. Relaxation comes in the form of sunloungers, a balé bengong pavilion and a table for alfresco dining on the pool terrace – all surrounded by manicured lawns and shaded by frangipani flowers and tall trees.
Bulan Madu has its own ornate Balinese entranceway and can also be accessed via a door connecting to its neighbour, Villa Indah Manis. The villa comprises an air-conditioned bedroom and an open-sided fan-cooled lounge. Steps descend into a mature landscaped garden, where a 6m x 4m infinity pool overlooks the forested hillside and out to sea and a balé bengong pavilion awaits.
Villa Indah Manis & Bulan Madu
You are most welcome to take advantage of the villa’s fully-equipped kitchen but, bearing in mind that you’re on holiday, we invite you to sit back, relax and enjoy some delicious home-cooked meals prepared by the villa’s very accomplished in-house chef and assistant cook.
The villa’s suggestion menu makes ordering easier, but we recommend that you also chat with the chef about any special dishes that your group would like him to prepare. The kitchen staff are excellent, but we’re sure you will appreciate that they do not have the capacity of a hotel or restaurant, so meals are generally served ‘family style’, where everyone shares dishes, as opposed to ordering individually. Food intolerances, special diets and children’s meals can all be catered for, and the chef will, of course, adjust the seasoning of dishes to suit different palates. Villa Indah Manis has a barbecue on site, so we highly recommend the local seafood feast featuring the catch of the day from Jimbaran Bay. Beers, wines and spirits can be provided upon request. All beverages are charged per drink, except for wine, which is charged by the bottle.
The food and beverage service is operated on a cash basis. Staff will request a cash float/deposit when you arrive to cover all your in-villa food and drinks, and ask for top-ups every few days, or when necessary. To allow the kitchen staff time to shop and prepare, it’s necessary to order in advance – either the evening before (for special requests) or at breakfast time each day. Grocery shopping will be done by the staff at local markets, supermarkets and delis. Food and beverages are charged at market price (plus a 20% handling fee which is subject to service and tax at the prevailing rate). Receipts will be kept and presented either on a daily or end-of-stay basis, whichever you prefer.
Villa Indah Manis & Bulan Madu
The family-friendly advantages of a villa holiday are many, including access to your own private facilities and the freedom to use them whenever you want. Knowing that the kids can run around happily, independently and safely, without you having to worry about other guests, is a real plus – and one that means parents are certain to have a more relaxed holiday too.
Our team of friendly staff at Villa Indah Manis will make youngsters feel as welcome as adults, they are very happy to assist with children during the daytime when parents are present, and having these willing helpers on hand will give you the flexibility to do your own exploring beyond the villa grounds (full-time babysitting incurs a small extra cost).
Indah Manis is a great villa for families – particularly those with older children, who will love the petanque court, the pool table, the darts board, and having the Lotus bedroom as their own ‘secret’ hideaway. While the villa is suitable for toddlers too, mums and dads will need to keep an eye out around the swimming pool and ponds. If it happens to be a rainy day, don’t despair, as the villa is well equipped with kids’ DVDs and numerous board games.
Our fully equipped kitchen allows you to prepare meals for fussy young eaters or babies with ease, but the staff will also be very happy to do this for you – just talk through your requirements and meal schedules with the villa manager or the cooks and they will take care of the rest. Don’t worry about packing all that cumbersome kids’ equipment for your stay. Just let us know what you need, and anything we don’t have in-house (villa facilities include a baby cot and highchair) can be hired on your behalf (click here to see list of available hire items).
And when the excitement of exploring the villa starts to wear off, check out our Things to do page; there’s plenty in the area to keep all the family amused throughout the holiday.
GYM & SPA
Villa Indah Manis & Bulan Madu
A small gym is located at Indah Manis, downstairs beneath the swimming pool and is equipped with an exercise bike, a step trainer, dumbbells and a full length wall mirror. The room is air-conditioned so you can cross train to your heart’s content. Alternatively, for a gentler form of exercise, you can do some yoga stretches. In-villa private yoga sessions can also be arranged – please speak with the villa manager.
Villa Indah Manis’ spa room is well equipped for luxurious in-villa treatments. Facilities include two massage beds and a special chair designed for administering Indonesian cream baths – an enriching hair treatment and head massage, not to be missed! The room also features a free-standing bathtub, toilet and shower and, out on the shady terrace, a large tiled jacuzzi. Deluxe treatments can be carried out by fully trained therapists from a reputable local spa with an hour or so’s notice – just ask the villa manger to organise your appointment (extra charges will apply). Here’s a sample of what’s on the menu:
Release built up tension with a traditional Balinese massage. Using a combination of gentle stretches, acupressure and aromatherapy oils to stimulate the flow of blood, oxygen and energy around your body you will feel totally relaxed in no time.
Foot reflexology is a natural healing art based on the principle that there are reflexes in the feet which correspond to every part of the body. Through application of pressure on these reflexes tension is relieved and circulation improved leaving you feeling balanced.
A full body scrub will exfoliate and hydrate your skin leaving it soft and smooth. A rejuvenating scrub combines an abrasive material such as salt, coffee, rice bran or pecan hulls with essential oils to remove any impurities and make your skin glow.
Our hands and feet work hard for us every day but rarely get the attention they deserve. Treat them to a manicure or pedicure, which usually comes with the added bonus of a quick hand or foot massage.
