Villa Hana offers guests a breezy laid-back lifestyle within an easy stroll of Echo Beach. Fully staffed and with four private bedroom suites (including a double bunk room for kids), a large living pavilion, 15-metre pool, media room and barbecue terrace, it’s ideal for active families holidaying together, or for groups of friends drawn by Canggu’s noted surf breaks and sunset bar scene.
ABOUT VILLA HANA
Moments from Echo Beach and securely set within high walls is this elegant four-bedroom villa, skillfully sculpted from interlinking pavilions, courtyards and covered walkways. Created by notable Australian designer Stuart Membery, Villa Hana features contemporary tropical interiors that blend seamlessly with their surroundings. The split-level living pavilion is open-sided and faces the pool; the bedrooms feature private garden terraces or open onto the pool, and the courtyards provide plenty of private chill-out spots. Over-sized sofas on polished concrete floors, black and white prints of Bali and abstract paintings on crisp white walls, rare artefacts in every corner – all attest to a modern design aesthetic where comfort is uncompromised.
The owners clearly know what appeals to families. Kids of all ages will love the cabin-style bunk bedroom, the media room with its 52-inch TV and Playstation, and the 15-metre pool (where parents can keep an eye on small ones from the comfort of the living pavilion).
Parents have the choice of formal dining at the massive suarwood table, or informally gathering around a second table on the barbecue deck, and are sure to appreciate the chance to retreat to the terrace of their master suite for some peace and quiet. Not having to lift a finger may also make a welcome change; working discreetly behind the scenes, Villa Hana’s staff includes an accomplished chef. Villa Hana is only 550 metres – a leisurely stroll – from Echo Beach with its pounding surf, expanse of sand, and popular cafés.
Accommodation at Villa Hana is in two adjoining single-storey pavilions forming an L-shape around the swimming pool and linked by a covered courtyard. At one end of the villa grounds, looking across a small stream towards trees and rice fields, is the master bedroom suite and children’s bunk room. Facing the length of the pool and flanked by two guest bedrooms is the split-level living area with elevated dining area sandwiched between a covered courtyard terrace and the kitchen with covered barbecue area beyond. Towards the entrance is a multimedia room and guest cloakroom.
All four bedrooms are handsomely designed with polished concrete floors and a strong black-and-white palette reflected in framed halftone photos, animated by colourful paintings. Facilities include 32-inch TVs, DVD players and iPod docks, and there’s air-conditioning throughout – even in the bathrooms.
Master suite - The master suite comprises a huge bedroom, bathroom and dressing room, and a covered terrace with seating looking onto a small garden edged by a stream. Striking artefacts are artfully placed and the king-size bed is positioned to enjoy glimpses of rice fields beyond a screen of trees. Within the bathroom is a statement bathtub set before glazed doors opening onto the terrace.
Guest bedrooms - Both guest bedrooms are furnished with king-size beds on bases of polished concrete facing the pool. Each has an ensuite bathroom with semi-open-air shower.
Bunk bedroom - Lining an entire wall of this delightful bedroom is a handsomely designed set of four bunk beds. Kids can curl up on floor cushions and enjoy a movie on the 32-inch TV, or spend some quiet time on a private terrace. The room, which has an ensuite bathroom, can be converted to a family room with the addition of a queen-size bed.
At the heart of Villa Hana is a huge fan-cooled and spilt level living area spreading out under a vaulted pavilion roof and opening onto the pool terrace. Curvaceous wicker sofas with over-sized cushions cluster around a coffee table while statuesque artefacts line benches set below enormous paintings.
A few steps lead up to the dining area where a solid suarwood table with stately armchairs seats up to 10 guests in style. To one side an ironwood deck provides an alfresco sitting area looking onto a courtyard garden, while to the other, tucked behind sliding doors, is the beautifully designed and well-equipped kitchen, beyond which is a pergola-roofed barbecue dining deck.
The air-conditioned media room provides a cool, comfortable entertainment hub for guests, who can languish on sofas and ottomans and watch a movie on the 52-inch TV. There’s a selection of DVDs, books and board games to choose from, as well as a Playstation 2. Nextdoor is a guest washroom complete with open-to-sky rain shower.
A sun deck wraps around two sides of the 15-metre pool, furnished with loungers and outdoor cushions. The veranda in front of the master bedroom, furnished with a traditional Indonesian daybed, provides another casual seating area, while the terraces behind the master suite and bunk bedroom serve as private corners for quiet retreat.

FAMILIES AT VILLA HANA
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.
Villa Hana is great for family groups. Younger family members will love their specially designed bedroom, complete with double bunk beds and bean bags set before the TV with DVD player and Playstation. The swimming pool is sure to be a magnet for their attention, and parents can keep an eye on them from the comfort of the open living area.
The team of friendly staff at Villa Hana will make children feel as welcome as adults, and having these willing helpers on hand gives guests plenty of flexibility and freedom to do their own exploring beyond the villa grounds (full-time babysitting incurs a small extra cost).
Although the equipped kitchen allows you to prepare meals for fussy eaters or babies with ease, staff will happily to do this for you – just talk through your requirements and meal schedules with the villa manager or chef and they will take care of the rest. Pancakes by the pool for breakfast? Snacks in the media room? No problem. The chef can customise all meals to suit children’s taste buds.
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, highchair, booster seat, books and games) we can hire on your behalf (click here to see list of available hire items).

SPA AT VILLA HANA
Feel like a body scrub or massage? Just ask our staff to bring the spa to you! We can recommend deluxe treatments carried out in the privacy of your villa by fully trained therapists from a reputable local spa (extra charges will apply). Here’s a sample of what’s on the menu:
Massage - 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 - 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.
Body scrub - 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.
Manicure/pedicure - 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.
