Villa Mako blends the luxury and grandeur of traditional Indonesian architecture with the picturesque surroundings of a small Canggu village set above a quiet river valley. This three- bedroom retreat is stately in design, yet warmly decorated with eclectic interiors. Set in the tiny village of Tiying Tutal, Villa Mako enjoys an elevated position with sweeping views over the pool, surrounding jungle canopy and rice terraces beyond. Comfort is the focus of Villa Mako’s plush interiors and furnishings, while the layout provides both private and social spaces for families or friends sharing. Amenities like the large child-friendly pool, media room and full-service staff ensure a relaxing and nurturing escape for guests.
Tiying Tutul, the village or ‘banjar’ around Villa Mako, remains primarily agricultural. 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.
We absolutely loved every minute of our stay at Villa Mako- from the outstanding staff to the beautiful pool area, the comfy beds and 5-star dining.
The ambience of the house is immaculately stylish,whilst maintaining an easy and laid back comfort, so you can really relax and take your holiday at your own pace.
It made our honeymoon trip to Bali incredibly special and we can't wait to come back one day (maybe an anniversary!)
Thank you to everyone at the villa who looked after us so well. We would highly recommend staying here to anyone visiting Bali.
Everything about this villa is perfect. The location was well-chosen, it's close to the beaches but still serene and traffic is not heard at night. The villa comes with free wifi and hot showers, as well as a TV room with child-friendly DVDs. It is a three bedroom villa with enough space for six to seven people if needed (just ask the staff to put up extra beds). One of the best parts of the Villa Mako is the beautiful pool.
The staff are incredibly helpful and very friendly. They are willing to pamper you, literally, by ordering a well-deserved massage.
Mealtimes were an absolute joy, local gems such as Nasi Goreng were served along side our personal favourites. Dietary requirements can be accommodated.
Alongside with surfing and shopping, Villa Mako was one of the many highlights of our trip.
From the moment we entered the villa to the second we left the staff were excellent, could not fault them at all. Food was awesome, no need to eat elsewhere. The staff were attentive but never in your face, they were helpful in every aspect of our holiday arranging outings and shopping and drivers. The villa is beautiful and very spacious. Loved every minute.
Really impressed by the staff, exceptional food and care taken to look after the guests. The pool is superb, great place to stay for family with kids
I stayed at Villa Mako with 4 friends and was completely satisfied in every aspect. The staff were attentive, charming and very talented (Ketut's cooking is reason enough to book). The villa itself is beautiful, comfortable and set in relaxing surroundings. The pool is enormous and was perfectly clean every day, and the bedrooms and bathrooms were very spacious and absolutely immaculate.
The local village is very picturesque, and it's just a short bike ride to the beach and bars. Gede was excellent in helping to organise any excursions we wanted, or in recommending restaurants (although we actually much preferred staying in and eating Ketut's food!) etc...
Overall I can't imagine a better place to stay when in Bali than Villa Mako.
Shared a villa with friends.
Villa staff was the most accommodating - from the manager to security guard, everyone was very attentive and solved our petty issues with the utmost care: cooking for vegetarians, uncloging toilet, rescuing us from a motobyke failure, etc.
The serenity of the villa is what we enjoyed the most - escape we all needed on our vacation.
Cycling to the beach was great- took only 15 min. Renting a motobyke, private car or getting a taxi again was gracefully arranged by the staff.
The villa served us as a perfect base for a variety of activities: surfing, exploring local culture, clubbing in Seminyak and sightseeing all over the island.
Hope to be back again soon!
In the very rare event of the airport being closed when you are due to arrive, we will endeavour to reschedule your villa booking to a mutually beneficial time
