Picture this: You’ve got your own sweet and stylish villa with a private plunge pool and lush gardens located just minutes from a pristine white sand beach and crystal clear lagoon. Here you’ve got seclusion and serenity, plus all the modern conveniences you need to make home-cooked meals and stay entertained for days. Yet you also have access to five-star facilities and services like an exclusive beach club, spa and gym, fine dining restaurants, and 24-hour room service.
Sounds too good to be true? Welcome to Villa Karma Manis, a 3-bedroom boutique villa nestled in the sprawling Karma Kandara Estate, which is situated on top of a 90-metre cliff overlooking the Indian Ocean on the southern tip of the Bukit Peninsula. Guests of Villa Karma Manis have total privacy at this home-away-from-home villa, yet you can also take advantage of Karma Kandara’s excellent offerings.
The villa itself is bright and airy thanks to floor-to-ceiling glass doors that open onto a wooden sundeck next to the 6-metre plunge pool. The open-plan living and dining room features comfy couches and armchairs, a satellite TV, home cinema system, and a stylish wooden table that can seat up to six people. Next to the living and dining room there is a fully equipped kitchen where you can prepare home cooked meals or invite the private chef to create gourmet feasts.
On the ground floor of Villa Karma Manis you have two guest bedrooms, one with a comfortable queen bed and doors that open onto the pool deck, and one with twin beds and garden views. Both these rooms have their own private bathrooms with showers. The master bedroom is located on the upper floor and it has a beautiful four-poster king bed, an ensuite bathroom, and a wrap-around balcony that overlooks the treetops and roofs of the surrounding villas. There is also a cosy office with a sofa that can double as an extra bedroom.
During the day you can chill out next to the pool or read a book on the sofa next to the open doors that allow sea breezes to flow in. You can also head down to Karma Beach Bali for some fun in the sun on the sand, fresh seafood lunches, cold beers and snorkelling, canoeing or kayaking in the calm waters of the lagoon. By night it’s all about gourmet cuisine and spectacular sunset views from the clifftop di Mare restaurant, or quiet nights in at the villa with movies, music, good friends and family.
Of course, you can also take advantage of the 7-seater car with a driver to explore Bali’s incredible coastlines, temples, mountains and jungles. Also on offer are group yoga classes, divine massages, body scrubs, facials and beauty treatments at Karma Spa, fun activities for the little ones at Three Monkeys Kid’s Club (which also allows parents to take a much-needed break), cooking classes, luxury catamaran trips, surf sessions, and pretty much anything else you can dream of to complete your ultimate Bali holiday.
