The location of Air Manis is just breathtaking, perched high above a village & the coast. As soon as we walked into the main building we were captivated by the beautiful scene that unfolded. It is definitely the beauty of the outdoors that is the major drawcard for this place. We had booked the bungalow but due to a small... More

Thank you for your kind words and most of all for the POW history that you shared with us. Very few people know about the trans Sumatra railway constructed by Aussie, British and Dutch POWs along with countless local prisoners. We will add some links to our website to inform visitors. More

I was running a "healing day" - a retreat for women who spend their lives supporting women in crisis. i knew that Air Manis Hill Residence would be the Perfect destination. Ten of us(2 expats and 8 locals) enjoyed a perfect day of refreshment at this beautiful paradise. The girls all thought they were in Bali not Padang. The view,... More

The food was amazing and the hospitality from our hostess and chef really were outstanding. We stared at the views of the ocean and moutnainside all day! All the arrangement from reservations,...

We loved our stay here. a 2 night stop enroute to the Mentawai Islands. It is a paradise in the busy, noisy hive of Padang, where on the weekends town never sleeps!! It's so quiet and peaceful, situated on the hill amongst the tropical gardens. It's worth every bit of the 10 mins extra drive out of town. Probably half... More

Padang, like most other Indonesian towns, is a bustling, hot and humid settlement located along the Indian Ocean coast in West Sumatra. Instead of staying in a nondescript town hotel, we decided to stay away from the centre in Puncak Air Manis Residence based on the good reviews here on TripAdvisor. Air Manis, which literally means “Sweetwater”, is actually the... More

Loved the location of the Villa Air Mantis. The place is peaceful and quiet - with a fantastic sunset view. The room was large and clean - as was the bathroom. There was no A/C, but the fan was fine with the cooler evening temperatures. Highly recommended.

Airmanis, Owner at Air Manis Hill Residence, responded to this review

It was great that you could make it and that the last minute flight changes all worked out. We are always amazed at how the combination of breeze and altitude make the inside and outside temperatures so comfortable year round. It keeps our environmental footprint pretty minimal not needed A/C. What we like most about no A/C is that we... More

We chose this villa as we wanted to have a relaxing week and see some of the real Indonesia. The staff are brilliant and find that perfect balance between being helpful and giving guests their own space

Words fall short to express what it's like to spend time at the Villa: quiet, comfortable and great views from the top of Bukit Gado Gado. I'd say the best escape from noisy Padang city. If you can imagine a place to get away from everyday Western (or Eastern..) life, this is it: tropical islands to explore on your doorstep;... More
