We stayed 2 nights in Air Manis Hill Residence and we loved it. A modern bungalow in a lush laid out garden at the hill top of the road to Air Manis beach. We had the choice between booking 2 rooms (family of 5) in a standard hotel in Padang City, or book the bungalow at Air Manis for a...

Thanks for your kind words and for pointing out the bungalow advantage over conventional hotels... and of course, the views. One of our guests described this as "panodrama" and so a new word best describes the experience of staying "on the hill".

I stayed for two nights in the private bungalow. I was the only guest at the time and had the whole place to myself. The house has two ladies who take care of the place during the day, and a security/maintenance man who is around and locks doors at night. The views from the various patios and all buildings are...

We stayed for 3 nights in the private bungalow next to the main house. We were the only guests except the Australian owners and the staff. The bungalow was big and fits up to 5 people. It was clean but a little bit dated. Views were great. The pool is very relaxing and refreshing. Staff was very nice and helpful....

My husband and I had the most lovely stay at Air Manis, we had the whole villa to ourselves. Our welcome, the food and our stay in general was absolutely perfect. We wished we had stayed one more night. Thank you for your hospitality, hopefully we will be back.

Air Manis Hill Residence gives you a unique opportunity to experience a clandestine Indonesian experience up in the vibrant hill overlooking Pantai Air Manis, surrounded by natural beauty. Great service and breathtaking scenery. Watching a troop of local wild monkeys leap and play in the forest canopy from the safety of your balcony is a real treat. Do make sure...

Most people don't go on vacation to Padang, Indonesia, unless they are avid surfers. However, one look at Air Manis and you will never regret your decision. Located in the rain forest at an elevation of about 700 feet above sea level the views, the breezes, and the peacefulness will leave you feeling refreshed, energized, and ready to take on...

We loved sharing "the Hill" with you both and your enthusiasm for the wild-life was infectious... I think of "polywogs" every time I pass a pond! Our favorite tree snake is still in residence... he (or she?) has not moved in 2 months so clearly he or she is onto a good thing. So that other guests dont worry, I...

The villa are fabolous. The view from the ground were amazing. The service are excellent. Well this will be my favourite place to stay in Padang. The food are homey. In fact its almost like having your own personal cook. Make sure to sleep inside mosquito nett or use some mosquito repellent lotion.

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...

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.
