Villa Indah Manis – Five Bedrooms Villa in Uluwatu
Commanding breathtaking views of Bali’s Bukit Peninsula, surrounded by charming rural landscape, and boasting colourful gardens and luxurious style, Villa Indah Manis is an ideal choice for an event villa in beautiful Uluwatu. Adjoined by the self-contained one-bedroom Villa Indah Manis Bulan Madu – a honeymooner’s heaven with its own plunge pool – Villa Indah Manis boasts five bedroom suites, an elegant living and dining pavilion, fitness, spa, media and games rooms and 16-metre swimming pool with shallow area for the kids.
Villa Indah Manis’ main garden offers space for the same number of guests across its flat green lawns, while the dramatic 16m pool can be converted into a temporary dance floor or stage while all the bedrooms are housed in separate pavilions for complete privacy from the main living/dining areas.The modern Balinese architecture makes use of local materials, such as white Palimanan stone, teakwood and sandwash, together with ‘sirap’ ironwood shingle for the roofs. On a clear day, the awesome vista takes in the ocean, the south coast of Bali and the silhouetted peaks of distant volcanoes. This beautiful area boasts some of the most idyllic beaches in Bali, including Balangan, Dreamland, Bingin and Padang Padang. These hidden, white sandy coves are great for both surfers and non-surfers alike.
Villa Indah Manis is designed for large groups of friends and family as well as for weddings and other celebrations, and is thoughtfully built to capture the cool ocean breezes even at the hottest time of year, offering a blend of air-conditioned comfort and tropical open-air living. The villa chef and his excellent team are on hand for all meals and a full service kitchen provides facilities to cater for up to sixty guests.
Bedrooms at Villa Indah Manis
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.
Living Spaces at Villa Indah Manis
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 breezes 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 ten 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 is 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. In this little snug, families can get together, sink into the comfy 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.
