Bedroom at Villa Mako
Each of Villa Mako’s three bedrooms presents a different and equally luxurious theme. Each has an ensuite bathroom equipped with air conditioning, ceiling fans, a mini-bar/fridge, and a safe deposit box. The two master bedrooms enjoy soaring roofs and magnificent views with sunny balconies, furnished with daybeds, overlooking the garden and pool. Fitted with ceiling fans, the balconies are perfect for whiling away the hours with a book or relaxing over morning tea or evening cocktails.
The Bali room is furnished with a king-size four-poster bed canopied with ikat (traditional hand-woven textile). The room features polished teak floors and French windows with louvre shutters, which open onto the terrace and balcony. Timeworn stained glass doors lead into a large dressing room with a massage bed and fitted cupboards with antique louvre doors. Another colonial-style door leads into the terrazzo bathroom, fitted with twin washbasins and a powerful overhead rain shower. A glass skylight in the roof allows the sunlight to stream in above a sunken sculptured terrazzo bathtub.
The Colonial room features a polished teak floor, French windows with louvre shutters, and a king-size four-poster bed with white drapes and ‘snakeskin’ cushions. The ensuite bathroom has an oversized sunken sculptured terrazzo bathtub, twin washbasins, a rain shower, a massage bed, and ceiling fans. Glass panels in the ceiling give the bathroom an open-air feel maximise the natural light.
The Bamboo Room is accessed by double antique doors and can be set up with two canopied beds (convertible to king-size) for younger guests or as a double room. This bedroom’s en-suite cream terrazzo bathroom has twin washbasins, ceiling fans, and a rain shower. Again, in this room, glass windows in the roof maximize the natural light.
Living Spaces at Villa Mako
Villa Mako’s expansive main living and dining pavilion features folding doors at either end that open wide to allow the cool breezes to circulate. The soaring roof in this splendid building is 8.5-metres high and is fitted with paddle ceiling fans. Furnishings include a handsome teak dining table for 10; an attractive display of traditional Indonesian artefacts; wooden lamp-stands fashioned from Javanese statues; armchairs. And a huge sofa upholstered in soothing neutral tones. A sunny stone terrace doubles the living space, making this a perfect venue for parties.
The open-plan, well-equipped feature kitchen at Villa Mako is fitted in glass and cream terrazzo. To one side is a casual breakfast area furnished with a circular marble-topped table and six brightly cushioned chairs. In the villa’s cosy media room, stretch out on the big squashy rainbow-striped sofa or kick back on the leather lay-z-boy chair. This timber-clad room has folding doors that open directly onto the pond, appearing to float above it. Guests can relax in air-conditioned comfort or open the doors wide and be cooled by ceiling fans and natural breezes. The room is equipped with a TV and DVD/CD player and the high-quality sound system is linked via a portable iPod docking station to speakers throughout the villa.
A wrought-iron gate heralds the stately flight of stone steps leading down to the pool through an avenue of foxtail palms. The beautiful garden then rolls down to a river located behind its boundary walls. While the delicately crafted gate is an attractive feature, it separates the main house from the pool creating a safety barrier for young children. The 18-meter mango-shaped swimming pool incorporates a large platform (15cm deep) for kids and is filled with light saltwater rather than chlorine. Sun-seekers will relish the cushioned loungers arranged on the pool’s stone terrace, and a relaxation balé, fitted out in colorful comfort, provides a pleasant shady alternative. Opposite the balé is a barbecue pavilion with a dining table for six, a fridge, and speakers for the sound system. A convenient washroom is situated just behind.
Villa Mako has a dedicated team of friendly and professional Balinese staff, including a full-time manager, housekeepers, gardener, pool attendant and security. This full-service team is young and enthusiastic and lives locally to ensure guests are looked after around the clock.
Manage your villa manager oversees and coordinates the villa staff and property and is available to assist guests on-call, 24 hours a day.

For something special, the Elite Concierge can organise a private chef experience wherein a professional chef will cook up a Balinese feast, barbecue, or custom gourmet lunch or dinner in the villa (extra charge). The chef is happy to customise dishes to suit your dietary requirements, including a kids menu that will tempt even the fussiest of eaters.

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 Mako’s owners designed their villa specifically with their two young daughters in mind: there’s plenty of open space for running around, a gate separates the main building from the pool; one of the bedrooms is furnished and decorated in kid-friendly fashion, and there’s a cosy TV room with DVDs, toys and a library of children’s books. Families with very young children will need to take care around the unfenced lily ponds at the villa, though.
The team of friendly staff at Villa Mako 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).
And don’t worry about packing all that cumbersome kids’ equipment for your stay. Just let us know what you need; anything we don’t have in-house (villa facilities include a baby cot, high chair, children’s board games, books, DVDs and pool toys).
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 Villa Mako – in the pool balé or on one of the massage beds in the master bedroom ensuites – by fully trained therapists from a reputable local spa (extra charges will apply). Here’s a sample of what’s on the menu:
Balinese massage releases 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 is a natural healing art based on the principle that reflexes in the feet correspond to every part of the body. Through applying pressure on these reflexes, tension is relieved, and circulation improves, leaving you feeling balanced.
Body scrubs 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.
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 bonus of a quick hand or foot massage.
