A generous breakfast selection is included with your stay.

You won’t hear any traffic at Villa Nilaya. Surrounded by ponds, fountains and lush tropical gardens full of birdlife and butterflies, this is a beautiful place to shut the world out and restore yourself with the healing presence of Nature.

Villa Nilaya offers spacious luxury living with style on a secluded beachfront perfect for family fun or romantic privacy. It's only five steps to the private beach with safe sea-swimming.

3 bedrooms with beautiful indoor/outdoor bathroom. There are daybeds throughout the villa with with panoramic views across the Lombok Straits, sun lounges by the large infinity pool looking across to the Islands of Nusa Penida and Lembongan.

Ground floor : A spacious bedroom suite with AC and fan, and large garden bathroom with sunken tub. Upper Floor : a spacious bedroom suite with ceiling-fan and large bathroom, and a smaller bedroom with ceiling fan and private bathroom.

All of the other living spaces on the house are ceiling fan-cooled.

We offer you a magnificent wooden deck cantilevered over the shoreline with a Balinese thatched gazebo and daybeds to stretch out, have a massage, enjoy a drink and let the sound of the sea soothe your mind and restore your body.

Upstairs, amidst the coconut fronds, with sweeping views from sunrise over Lombok to magical sunsets over Padang Bai, our timbered verandah offers you space to dance, play, and practice yoga. With space for up to 18, it is perfect for yoga retreats, and all the yoga equipment is freely available.

Villa Nilaya seclusion offers honeymooners a very private playground ... don't miss the wonderful antique Indian swinging brass bed on the terrace or the built-for-two bathtub in the open-air garden bathroom.

Baby-siting is available on request.

Everyone who has stayed just loves our staff! You'll enjoy a range of complimentary breakfasts and in the afternoon, you'll be served Balinese sweets for tea.

For dinner you might choose to stay in and relax whilst a divinely decadent Balinese feast, or 'megibung banquet', is brought to you by candlelight … and our menu of Balinese and Western dishes has enough to please all tastes, with fresh seafood, pork spareribs and delicious vegetarian food our specialty. (main dishes range from US$3-$8)

If you're intrigued by the flavours, why not meet our executive chef for a private cooking class? You'll return home with recipes that you can recreate and a rich understanding of the culture of East Bali.

Don't forget to enjoy the local hospitality of sea-side restaurants in our village of Mendira - just a leisurely ten minute stroll along a quiet village road amidst palm tree forests.

Our professionally-trained masseuse will pamper you with a range of beautiful spa therapies including Organic Coffee scrubs, warm-stone massages, including our 'Nilaya Signature Massage', using delicious Sensatia Balinese Spa Botanicals. Massages range from US$15-$25 / hour

A private yoga lesson is our pleasure to arrange for you, as are a range of really unique adventures which will take you into the heart of Bali - whether your interest is trekking, cycling, climbing, rafting, quad-biking, elephant riding, getting a PADI qualification or deep-sea fishing.

We can arrange all of this for you with trusted operators whose primary concern is always your safety.

Yoga equipment is freely available for you to use at any time.

With plenty of living space and 3 garden areas, we've held events which include anniversary parties for 60 and candle-lit dinners for two. Fireworks, private cultural performances, superb East Balinese banquets - nothing is too much trouble for us to arrange to make your holiday perfect.

Need a little night life? The largest nearby town of Candi Dasa is only 4 km away, and many restaurants will send a car to collect you - so transport is never a problem. We can arrange a driver for you to discover beautiful East Bali, and each room carries a full description of local sights and trips, so you can plan your next day from bed!

Host’s Tip: Make time to enjoy an evening at Vincent’s Jazz restaurant in Candi Dasa. They will send a car to collect you and bring you home, free of charge!

We REALLY look forward to sharing our little paradise with you.

Where you’ll be

Manggis, Bali, Indonesia


Mendira Village is just 5 km west of Candi Dasa, where you'll find delightful restaurants, some with excellent international cuisine - some will send a free car to collect you - just ask our staff to call the restaurant for you.
Mendira Village has several excellent seaside 'warungs', or local restaurants with delicious food from $4 a dish - all within easy walking distance of the villa.
Villa Nilaya features an extensive menu with authentic Balinese flavours, and the services of the chef are included in the villa price, so you only pay for the meals you order (prices are on par with those in the local warungs).
You can pre-order a meal to be ready upon your arrival and we have a good wine list, from which you can pre-order prior to your arrival if you wish.


Mendira is welcoming and friendly, maintaining traditional Hindu culture and traditions

You don't need to travel for great SNORKELING - it's right at the front of the villa, and the dive wrecks of Tulamben make a great day trip.
We can help you organise snorkeling gear.
If deeper sea DIVING or PADI courses are your thing, we can assist you with recommended Dive Masters who will pick you up and tailor the diving to your wishes and ability.

Marvel at the spectacle of Mt Agung viewed from the sea - take a BOAT TRIP on a local fishing vessel - they will come in and collect you directly from the shore in front of the villa. Take a picnic basket, or set off for a day on the 'white sand beach' and enjoy BBQ fish!


Mendira is an excellent base from which to explore Central and Eastern Bali - regions of astounding beauty and cultural authenticity. Check my travel blogs for more detail and inspiration!


This is what Villa Nilaya was designed for .... do you know the Spanish saying:
" How wonderful it is to do nothing, and then relax afterwards" ? .....

Creating warm, welcoming, functional and pleasantly surprising environments and experiences for others is at the heart of all I do.

Travel, art, textiles, yoga and tango - all passions which fire my imagination and life. An art gallerist for many years, I travelled and collected extensively - the creative impulse to adorn reflected in my homes in Perth and Bali (both Airbnb properties).

As a professional traveller since 2014, I live, work and sometimes study in unusual and beautiful places, getting to know them intimately, ultimately sharing the experience with others in the small group tours and art retreats that I design and accompany.

'Spice Voyages' currently brings adventurous travellers to Morocco and Sri Lanka, where I've been living for the last 2 years.
Ethiopia and India have been previous destinations.

'Creative Living Retreats' brings together professional artist teachers and yogis for week-long Art and Yoga retreats in Bali and Sri Lanka.

During your stay

You'll have the villa to yourselves, but I'll send you detailed descriptions of things to do in beautiful East Bali ; perhaps you'd like a cooking lesson with our executive chef, or discover the island of Nusa Lembongan, go white water rafting or discover the unique textile traditions of this region of Bali. Whatever your interest, I can put you in touch with experts in their field, and the full-time villa staff will be happy to help you at all times.
