The locale
Villa Mako

Villa Mako rests just beyond the borders of Canggu and Pererenan, providing a peaceful retreat within easy reach of the tourist buzz.  Amongst the rice fields which extend all the way down to the beach, you will not only find some of the most luxurious private residences on the island, but also a great selection of eclectic restaurants, cafes, bakeries, boutiques and beach bars – especially along Jalan Batu Bolong, which runs right down to the beach.  Popular beach spots include Finns Beach Club, Old Man’s, La Laguna, The Lawn and Ji@Bale Sutra.

Tiying Tutul, the village or ‘banjar’ around Villa Mako remains primarily agricultural even though it is less than five kilometres from popular Canggu beaches.  At the bottom of the garden is a rustic brick wall with a gateway opening onto the riverbank.  Here, guests will find a simple and private riverside balé, perfect for meditation.  This is also the site of a holy spring, where villagers make offerings to the gods.  80 metres further along the river is the village temple.  Guests will be welcomed at temple festivals; some may even be lucky enough to witness a barong dance or other Hindu ceremony.  The villa staff will be happy to help with ceremonial clothing and advice on etiquette.
