Villa Mannao ticks all the usual boxes for contemporary villas in Bali - chic tropical decor, garden showers, infinity pools - and way more! Firstly the location - it's tucked away in a quiet lane with views of swaying rice fields of Kerobokan, yet only 10 minutes by car to the beach and attractions of Seminyak and Canggu. Then, there's the charming staff who intuitively second guess your every need and will patiently await your decision on whether to fit in another in-house massage before sunset cocktails. Set in a tropical garden are eight bedrooms with at its center not just one but two impressive open-sided living spaces with soaring columns. Design is chic and contemporary, with a high standard of finishes throughout. The atmosphere is exclusive, private, laid-back and utterly luxurious - perfect for families or friends holidaying together. Villa Mannao is laid out in Balinese pavilion style, with four separate buildings for the rooms. The spacious master bedroom pavilion is located next to the main living pavilion, featuring a spacious fan and air-conditioned suite with a four-poster king-size bed, billowing mosquito nets, white linens and light duvets. Connecting to the master bedroom is a children's room with two twin beds, ideal for any parents travelling with young kids or infants, as extra baby cot can be provided. Views are of the 20 meter pool, garden and rice fields. Dressing area has plenty of wardrobe space, complimentary bathrobes and a safety deposit box. The large bathroom is an experience in itself: double-sinks, huge stone bathtub, shower and baskets for personal knick-knacks are a nice touch. The four deluxe rooms at Villa Mannao overlook the 15 meter swimming pool. The three superior rooms are nestled in a zen like courtyard with a small pond, just behind the main living pavilion. The four deluxe rooms and two of the larger superior rooms have comfortable mosquito-netted king size beds. The third superior room is perfect for kids with its two bunk beds that can sleep up to four of your darlings together in a large private room of their own. All seven rooms have ample wardrobe space, flat screen TV, DVD player and safety deposit boxes. The en-suite bathrooms boast twin washbasins with lots of space for your personal toiletries, garden and indoor showers and even an outdoor bathtub for the bunk bedroom. Villa Mannao has a dining area that sits 10 people comfortably and there is an extra table for an additional 4 people. Both open-sided living pavilions offer different lounging areas for you choose from. Gather on one of the three comfortable white sofas covered with plush cushions and an impressive hand hammered copper chandelier towering high above. Or sit yourself in one of the cozy sofa lounges or wooden day-beds at the front of the pavilion while watching the sunset behind the rice fields. Did we mentioned there is not one, but two pools at Villa Mannao? Choose between the 15 meter pool or the 20 meter pool for your days spent on one of the sunbeds. Next to the master bedroom is an Alang-Alang gazebo with cushioned seating for when you want to chill out and gaze at the sweeping sea of green rice paddies. During the daytime, the spacious lawned garden facing the rice fields is the perfect spot for running around, kicking a ball or flying a kite. And in the evening, the staff can set-up a romantic dinner under the stars or a BBQ to share among friends. Massages and all manner of beauty treatments are available on request in the bright massage room located in the main living pavilion. The fabulous staff, headed by the charming Balinese Ayu and dedicated Balinese Agus, provide an efficient concierge service. Villa Mannao is just a short drive away from Seminyak's beaches, vibrant shopping scene and famous restaurants such as Metis and Sarong. It's close to the action but far enough to relax in privacy and feel the authentic Balinese lifestyle.
