Welcome to
Villa Mako

Villa Mako sets the luxury and grandeur of Dutch colonial architecture within the picturesque surroundings of a small Canggu village. This three-bedroom retreat, staffed with an experienced and friendly team of seven, is stately in design, yet warmly decorated with eclectic interiors reflecting the passions and travels of the owners.  Balinese and Javanese antiques and a bold use of colour create a unique and comfortable sanctuary for guests.

The villa’s elevated position affords sweeping views over the pool, the surrounding jungle canopy and rice terraces beyond. The design of this stunning building cleverly uses natural light throughout to highlight the beautiful interiors and every room catches the cool breeze, even during the warmest months of the year, offering guests a choice of air-conditioned comfort and open-air tropical living.

The layout

Villa Mako is approached via a private driveway with a secure car parking area. At the villa entrance guests are greeted by a pair of Chinese welcome statues guarding a set of double Balinese doors. The doors open to reveal a covered walkway with a pitched roof, which circumvents an ornamental pond complete with a bubbling water feature. 

The villa comprises an open-sided fully equipped kitchen and an air-conditioned media room facing each other across the pond while, on the far side, the main building incorporates a living and dining hall and three bedrooms. Beyond the main house, a beautifully landscaped tropical garden, complete with its own serene temple, rolls down manicured lawns to a generously sized swimming pool (with shallow feature suitable for children) and a thatch-roofed dining pavilion. The garden vista flows on to the tropical jungle canopy outside the villa walls and beyond to the surrounding rice terraces creating a picture-perfect backdrop to the serenity of Villa Mako.

The rooms

Each of Villa Mako’s three bedrooms presents a different and equally luxurious theme.  Each has an ensuite bathroom and is equipped with air conditioning, ceiling fans, a mini-bar/fridge and safe deposit box.  The two master bedrooms enjoy soaring roofs and magnificent views together 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.

Bali Room

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 out 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 wash basins and a powerful overhead rain shower.  A glass skylight in the roof allows the sunlight to stream in above a sunken sculptured terrazzo bathtub.

Colonial Room

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.  In the ensuite bathroom is 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 and maximise the natural light.

Bamboo Room

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 double room.  This bedroom’s ensuite cream terrazzo bathroom is fitted with twin washbasins, ceiling fans, and a rain shower.  Again, in this room, glass windows in the roof maximise the natural light.
