Villa Mako sets the luxury and grandeur of Dutch colonial architecture within the picturesque surroundings of a small Bali village, less than five kilometres from the island’s happening west shore. This three-bedroom Pererenan villa, 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 original colonial design for Villa Mako owes much to the architecture of traditional Javanese plantation houses with the high, wooden-strutted ceilings of the villa’s central hall taking their inspiration from an old college in Bandung, Central Java. The majestic design also incorporates the use of wide eaves and, combined with the elevated position of the land, this allow for beautiful breezes and a flooding of natural light.
Comfort and relaxation are the focus of Villa Mako’s plush interiors and furnishings feature oversized sofas, daybeds, poolside loungers and plenty of cushions, so guests will always find a private place for peace and quiet. In addition to the many indoor and outdoor lounge spaces, guests have the choice of three dining areas, all of which present a unique ambiance.
Set on the outskirts of Bali’s tourist areas in the tiny village of Tiying Tutul near Pererenan, Villa Mako sits amid the rhythms of agricultural life and gracefully honours Balinese culture. Guests are welcome at Hindu ceremonies in the nearby temple, which provide a unique insight into the religion and customs of Bali, while helpful villa staff – a dedicated team of seven, including manager and chef – will be pleased to offer guidance on temple etiquette. Guests may even be lucky enough to see a barong dance – a sacred ritual staged not for tourists but for the local community to bring good fortune to the village.
