Villa Manis comprises four pavilions set around a large, tiered garden and swimming pools orientated towards the ocean and an expanse of neighbouring rice fields. Guests enter through the main pavilion, which houses the indoor living and dining room and a guest bedroom and media room on the ground floor, plus a kitchen set to the rear. The upper floor of this pavilion is dedicated to a large master suite with private ocean-view balcony.
Two ground-floor guest bedrooms occupy the second pavilion, either side of the villa’s spa. Next to this is a two-storey pavilion with two bedrooms, one on each floor. At the far end of the garden is the fourth pavilion which houses the pool lounge and jacuzzi on the ground floor and two twin bedrooms upstairs. The gymnasium is located towards the rear of the villa, next to the manager’s office.
All eight bedrooms at Villa Manis are equipped with TVs, air-conditioning, ensuite bathrooms and are furnished with either king beds or twins that can be converted to kings.
Master suite - More than just a master suite, this room takes up the entire first floor of the main pavilion and features a massive sleeping chamber with ocean views from its bed. The suite’s private wrap-around balcony is furnished with daybed, tables, chairs and more views, while the ensuite bathroom, complete with jacuzzi tub, leather sofas and chairs, is bigger than an average inner city apartment.
Guest bedrooms - Just off the living room, the first guest room is lots of fun, with coloured Buddha statutes, hardwood and terrazzo floors, furniture inlaid with cinnamon wood, and a splendid four-poster bed with orbs of many colours forming its uprights. Sliding doors let in lots of light and access a private courtyard, while an outdoor shower and purple velvet sofa in the bathroom make bath time something to look forward to.
Guest rooms two and three sit either side of the villa’s dedicated spa and luxuriate under lofty ceilings. These rooms open to their own sitting area and to the garden and pool. Both are designed to the same layout and furnished with twin beds (convertible to kings), and both have sunny outdoor showers in their ensuite bathrooms for a great start to the day.
King-bedded guest rooms four and five occupy one floor apiece in a two-storey pavilion. The lower room is spacious and dramatic with elegant velvet chairs and couches and dark hardwood floors, countered by a bright and sunny outdoor shower in its ensuite. The upper room has a four-poster bed and a lighter décor and, while not as big as downstairs, has a breezy private balcony overlooking the garden and out to sea. Both rooms have fold-out couches suitable for sleeping a child.
Guest rooms six and seven are located upstairs in a pavilion at the far end of the villa grounds with views of the rice fields or garden. Both of these ensuite rooms are furnished with twin beds that can be converted to kings. While they are smaller than the others at the villa, these bedrooms are comfortable and well suited to a family of four who want to be close to the kids.
The main pavilion at Villa Manis combines a very spacious lounge, dining room and entrance hall adorned with original artworks and antiques. Sliding glass doors on two sides of this bright room lead out to the garden and overlook the neighbouring rice fields. In the dining space is a long table with seating for 12 and a bar area, while at the centre of the room, under an impressive double-height ceiling depicting scenes from Balinese mythology, is an arrangement of comfortable sofas, chairs and coffee tables. A media room with cosy couches and a 60-inch TV adjoins the far end of this elegant living space. On a terrace alongside the pool, is a dining table for 12 sheltered by a retractable awning to keep the tropical sun at bay.
Outside the spa under a high wooden ceiling is a sitting area with soft sofas and chairs arranged next to a koi pond. It looks out over the garden and pool and is positioned to catch the sea breezes. At the far end of the property is a cool, white-themed, open-sided pool lounge, furnished with leather sofas, coffee tables and a drinks bar, as well as a white stone jacuzzi.

DINING AT VILLA MANIS
Our chef is at your service to prepare daily breakfast, lunch and dinner. Priced menus offer a wide array of Western, Asian and children’s dishes, which the chef can tailor to suit guests’ needs. A stay is not complete without sampling the chef’s pepes ikan (fish steamed in banana leaf), satay ayam (chicken satay on bamboo skewers) or pisang goreng (fried banana) with ice cream.
Dinner parties, unique dietary requirements and special orders can all be catered for, and meals can be a simple affair, a poolside barbecue, or a grand banquet according to guests’ whims. Grocery and beverage requests not on the menu are charged at cost plus a 20% surcharge. In this instance, staff will do the shopping and keep the receipts for reference. To make the most of the kitchen and give staff time to shop, it is a good idea to plan meals the evening before whenever possible.
GYM AND SPA AT VILLA MANIS
Just because you are on holiday doesn’t mean that your fitness regimen has to take a break as well. At Villa Manis you will find a state-of-the-art, air-conditioned gymnasium with weights, treadmill, cross trainer as well as a sauna for helping wind down after a workout.
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 villa’s spa room 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.
