The beautiful Villa M is hidden away in the rice fields, just ten minutes’ drive from Berawa beach on Bali’s south western coast. Offering guests a choice of renting options, this 4-bedroom retreat covers 2,000 square metres of land and is comprised of two self-contained villas, each with a private entrance and a private pool. The 1-bedroom villa and the 3-bedroom villa can either be linked or alternatively remain totally separate and private. Designed by Balinese architect Putu Edy Semara, the style blends modern Balinese architecture with minimalist design, local materials, hardwood floors, and graceful, contemporary furnishings.
Villa M presents luxury facilities in a spectacular natural setting, encompassed by rice terraces reminiscent of amphitheatres. On a clear day, the sweeping view is enhanced by the magical sight of the mountains. Guests staying at Villa M will receive a privileged insight into rural Bali, yet the property is only ten minutes’ drive from the shops, nightlife, spas, and internationally acclaimed restaurants of Seminyak. The sweeping Seminyak Beach is renowned for its world-class surf breaks, panoramic coastline views and legendary sunsets. Neighbouring sport and leisure facilities include The Canggu Club, offering a state-of-the art gym, a 25 metre swimming pool and a tennis & squash centre. The Umalas Riding Stables is less than just two kilometres away, and the famous Nirwana Golf Course is just twenty minutes’ drive. Convenient for all of Kuta’s main shopping malls, and the island’s many tourist attractions, the villa is thirty minutes’ drive from Bali’s International Airport.
The approach to Villa M is through the Balinese village of Umalas, the narrow country lane then winds through the rice fields for another two kilometres before reaching the main entrance and reception pavilion via a large courtyard with a sizeable parking area.
The expansive gardens, created by landscape designer Anto Kusnanto, are planted with sweet scented flowers and trees, and presided over by a large relaxation gazebo with a daybed. The spacious lawns offer an ideal setting for parties, weddings and dance performances.
