Defining Glamping: The Original British Colonial Style Safari Camp “Speke’s Camp”. In my upcoming post I will be sharing one of my most unique experiences in my life. I and a few close companion travelled to one of the world’s most famous safari site: Masai […]
Although Phuket is undoubtedly one of the most famous beach destinations in Thailand, a lot of travellers use Phuket as a “base location” to travel to a few famous islands nearby. Among those islands such as Phi Phi and Similan islands, one of my favourite, […]
But after a long day of adventure, what we all need is a place with great comfort and style to unwind and relax. Small, well located, with a touch of luxury and some character, Mayana Villas was my perfect home for the week. It is situated right in the heart of Canggu (North of Seminyak, a more well-known area in Bali). It is just off the main road but the property is serene and private with only 4 villas–each with its own private pool and garden!
This villa has a spacious open-air area with a beautiful high ceiling which allows a good amount of natural light. The warm, fresh, tropical breeze flowing through the living space really made us feel like we were one with the outdoors.
The living area is beautifully decorated with touches of Bali everywhere. Magnificent hard woods, and stone carvings mix seamlessly with tropical plants and lush green ferns. The fully equipped kitchen is next to the dining area and comes with a stove, oven, microwave, fridge and all the essentials for home cooking or to be spoilt by an in-house chef.
Villa Cinta has a decent size pool, with shades of teal, giving a tropical, lush green atmosphere. There are deck chairs as and umbrellas to catch a nap after your swim. The whole area is perfect for a lazy afternoon of relaxation if you decide to stay in for the day.
Villa Cinta นี้มีสระขนาดกำลังดีสำหรับการมาพัก 2-4 คนด้วยกัน สีกระเบื้องสระเป็นสีเขียวฟ้ามรกต พอรายล้อมไปด้วยต้นไม้แล้วให้ความรู้สึก Tropical Lush Green มาก ๆ
Equipped with aircon, the two double en-suite bedrooms are comfortable with just the right amount of natural light during the day, but warm and cozy in the evening.

We also got a chance to have a tour of their larger Villa Keluarga, which features 3 fully sized air conditioned bedrooms with king sized beds and en-suite bathrooms (and, of course, a pool).

The staff came in to cook us a fresh breakfast every morning in our villa kitchen. Delicious ripe tropical fruit was prepared and served right before we were seated at the breakfast table. They also went the extra mile and made us special packed breakfasts for the days where we had to leave very early in the morning for our Bali adventuring!
When you are looking for a place to stay in Bali, the sheer range of options and possible locations can leave you overwhelmed. We could not have wished for a more perfect place to be stationed for our time in Bali than in Mayana Villas.
They are reasonably priced and great value for a group. The location is ideal for being close enough to hit all the best spots while still having a quiet retreat after a day of adventure. Lastly, the range of amazing cafés and restaurants in Canggu alone is enough to keep anyone satisfied!
Hong Kong is widely known as a busy, vibrant and upbeat hub of Asia. Usually when I visit, I would pick a hotel right in the centre of the hustle and bustle of the city near “the escalator”. However, this time I decided to break the habit […]
Bali had always been one of my dream destinations, so I was over the moon when I was confirmed to fly over there for a few days to emcee for an international conference. As the conferenced took place at Le Méridian Bali Jimbaran the entire […]
We found ourselves once again in Phuket, but this time we were looking for a special and somewhat less well-known place to stay. We got a little fed up with popular luxury hotels where dress-to-impress travellers check-in to take photos of them in the “famous” pool villas.
I heard many good things about Cape Panwa Hotel since many moons ago, so I was very pleased to know I would get to spend a few nights there. I was booked by the hotel to host their biggest events of the year: Christmas Eve […]
