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.

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

This place is really quiet and beautiful, with not only an extremely fascinating architecture and cosy feeling, but as well a breath taking view over the coast and towards the small tropical islands with their exotic desirable beaches. Monkeys, butterflies and eagles are your neighbors when you live at Villa Air Manis high up on the hills above Padang, surrounded... More

We were so happy to see you recover so fast during your stay. It was a delight to meet you both and we very much enjoyed our talks on the terrace. I hope the interview with Bu Iis worked out ok. Please keep in touch and do come again. More

Villa Air Manis is a unique accommodation in the hills of Padang with an unbelievable view over the picturesque coastline. The design of the villa is unique, offering not only perfect views, but providing also an impressive open space. The villa is built by an architect, and you can feel how many ideas went into the perfect design. The interior... More

Sorry to have missed meeting you this time and look forward to sharing a beer with you on the terrace next time. We are working on a new project we call the "Secret Terrace". It will be a new place to take in the full panorama but fully surrounded by rain forrest greenery. We will post some images when it... More

We spent 7 nights at Air Manis Villa and we had an amazing time. Jufrial and Iboh were always available and friendly. The owner always responded to any questions we had and advised us helpfully. The views were stunning; the rooms were spotless. If you find yourself in Padang and you wish for some comfort and privacy, spend some time... More

We love dogs and have one ourselves. We must ask guests to keep their dogs or other pets outside the villa and bungalow as not all guests feel the same way:-) As for the ants, we dont use poisons anywhere on site and we have to say that the ants were there before we built the villa! We control with... More

Although I stayed only for night, I really enjoyed myself at this property. The views are stunning and I believe it is hard to capture them fully with a camera. The bedroom I stayed at (still am not sure about the name of it!) was very comfortable, airy and spacious and thank goodness I had the mosquito net as there... More

Thanks for your kind words. Many guests decide to relax and enjoy the view rather than rush about in a car or a boat. We understand. As for the insects, I have asked our staff and they say we had a "flying ant night"... it happens a few times per year. After rain the ants decide to swarm and fly... More
