About Villa Indah Manis
At Indah Manis, meaning beautiful and sweet, we have drawn on our experience in the hospitality industry to create a destination villa that embraces all the ingredients of comfort, style, entertainment and recreation. The result is a tranquil five-bedroom retreat perched upon a hillside on Bali’s Bukit Peninsula with a beautiful view of the ocean, distant volcanoes and Bali’s south-west coastline. Villa Indah Manis is an ideal choice for family holidays. This serene villa provides a host of facilities for your entertainment and pleasure such as a 16-metre infinity-edge swimming pool that juts out dramatically above the forested hillside, a well-equipped fitness room, cosy TV room with surround-sound and a movie library, and a semi-open games room with a pool table.Further indulgences come in the form of a spa room and accompanying jacuzzi tub, a thatched poolside bar pavilion, and an excellent team of staff, including an in-house chef. Kids of all ages will enjoy our fine selection of games ranging from pool, petanque and darts to a stack of board games. If, despite all these diversions, you wish to explore further afield, you'll find that the neighbourhood is blessed with some of the most idyllic beaches in Bali, as well as a world-class golf course. What's more, a car and driver are on standby at a reasonable daily rate.Guests looking for a little extra space, and romantic couples travelling alone need look no further than the delightful, self-contained Villa Bulan Madu honeymoon suite. Complete with its own private entrance and pool, this little love shack can be rented independently or in conjunction with the main five-bedroom villa.
Indah Manis is composed of a series of pavilions complemented by gorgeous flat-lawned gardens and lily ponds. At its heart is a fan-cooled living and dining pavilion, open at the front to a 16-metre infinity pool, sun deck, alfresco dining terrace and bar, and with views to the ocean beyond. The fully equipped kitchen and the bedroom suites are set further back among the gardens. One of the five bedrooms has an annex that can accommodate two extra children. Beneath the pool deck, the lower ground floor comprises an air-conditioned home theatre, fitness room, spa room, the Lotus bedroom and an open-sided games room.
The self-contained, one-bedroom honeymoon villa, Bulan Madu, can be rented in conjunction with Indah Manis to make a private and romantic sixth bedroom.
Blessed with sea views over the treetops, the semi-open-air living and dining pavilion is the social heart of Villa Indah Manis. A place to congregate in fan-cooled comfort enhanced by fresh breeze drifting in through the room’s open front, which leads out onto the pool deck. This large pavilion, with its soaring bamboo-lined roof, is flanked by a fish-filled lily pond and serenaded by the sound of bubbling water. A dining table for 10 lies at one end, while at the other guests can relax on sofas and lazy chairs. After dark, the pavilion takes on a different persona, softly lit with two impressive wrought iron chandeliers and surrounded by the mellow glow of garden lamps, its glamour enhanced by the distant lights of Kuta and Seminyak twinkling across the ocean.Below the living pavilion and pool deck, the media room is a cosy, air-conditioned den, decorated in warm deep orange tones, harmonised with rich silk cushions. Families can get together here, sink into the comfortable sofa and watch TV or choose from a wide variety of movies on the Movie Box or from a library of DVDs. Surround-sound completes the home theatre experience. An alternative option is to settle down for an evening of board games, selected from the big stack on the shelf unit; there’s even a Mah Jong set.
Apart from the beautifully landscaped gardens most of Indah Manis’s outdoor activity takes place around the main living pavilion, where a row of sun loungers are arranged on the deck to one side of the pool, and a thatched cabana bar and alfresco dining table at the other. The lighting here at night is stupendous and is guaranteed to get the party started.
Downstairs below the pool deck is the open-sided games room with pool table and darts board, the spa and gym, and a petanque court.
Kamboja master bedroom
The Kamboja suite, with its royal décor and wide hilltop views, takes pride of place at Indah Manis. This romantic bedroom is named after the fragrant frangipani flower and is distinguished by a royal red entranceway, off which is a bold purple and gold-trimmed bedchamber, a luxurious dressing area and an ensuite bathroom where guests can soak in a petal-filled bathtub under the gaze of a benevolent goddess in a private garden courtyard. Below a soaring roof, the bedroom is furnished with a small desk, a satellite TV and a canopied king-size bed dressed in soft white linen and accessorised with richly embroidered cushions and trim. Making the most of the glorious views, wide sliding glass doors open onto a stone terrace furnished with comfortable all-weather armchairs and a side table.
Named after the sweet-scented gardenia flower, the air-conditioned Jempiring room beckons its guests across a lily pond before welcoming them with a chartreuse-green theme and plenty of space. Furnished with twin beds that convert to a queen-sized bed, together with two sofas that can be made up as single beds, this room is perfect for a group of up to four kids or a couple with two young children. All age groups will love the ensuite garden bathroom, which is fitted with twin washbasins and a rain shower and features a stunningly lit Balinese statue framed within a glassless window.
Alamanda guestroom and Melati annex
Alamanda is a trumpet-shaped flowering climber, and this bright guest room of the same name, with its king-size bed and cosy annex, is perfect for either a couple looking for a little extra living space or for a family. The orange-toned Melati (jasmine) annex serves a dual purpose as either a private sitting room or as a kids' bedroom, sleeping up to two children on the two sofas, which convert to twins or a double bed. The two rooms share a bathroom.
Cempaka (also meaning Frangipani) is the only upstairs suite at the villa, and has extraordinary views from its breezy covered terrace, which is furnished with a comfortable daybed and a gracious wooden statue. In the bedroom, guests will just melt into the ambiance of the rich chocolate-accented décor, packaged in glass, teak, and coffee-coloured marble. Here, the king-size bed is positioned to enjoy the views through glass doors that open widely onto the terrace. The room is equipped with a satellite TV and has an ensuite bathroom enclosed within slatted timber walls and filtted with a refreshing rain shower.
Stairs at the side of the living pavilion lead down to Indah Manis' 'fun zone' where, alongside the spa, fitness and games rooms, lies the Lotus guestroom. Older kids, in particular, will love having this area of the villa to themselves. With bright yellow and lavender walls, large twin beds, and a wall of glass doors to the front opening onto a furnished terrace complete with a large jacuzzi, the Lotus room makes a wonderful hideaway.
