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; wildlife right next to your bedroom and Rick's morning coffee.
If you have the chance, go here. You won't regret!

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 by forest and a cool breeze. We enjoyed our time at Villa Air Manis very much, specifically because Janet and Rick, who run the Hotel and ever smiling Mrs. Ibu Is made us feel like we are part of the family, cooked and cared for us, explained in long evening conversations how they experienced the culture and history of the region. I highly recommend staying at Villa Air Manis, it will feel like being in a little paradise and at the same time at home.

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.

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 is also very well designed with some beautiful antiques. The house is a perfect blend of modern and antique elements. The villa is surrounded by a beautiful garden and nice and large pool. The staff is also perfect: The cook Ibu Iis creates great homemade Indonesian menus, the cooking is really on the level of an excellent restaurant; Jup, the manager and driver is very reliable and took us to a nice tour.

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 is complete.

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 at Air Manis Villa.

I searched for a place to stay for a vacation with my two rotties, and found villa Air Manis. It sits on top of a hill, just 10 minutes drive to Air Manis Beach. Not only a very quite hide away, but also it accommodate my two dogs!!. The location matches with anybody expectation on beauty of the sunset and view of the blue ocean water. Don't worry if you feel lazy to go out once you enter the villa because it has a good cook!! She even cook the homemade bread for your breakfast!!
However, be prepared for ants as they easily crawl inside to eat on the dead insects.
If you travel with few people or in a small group, bungalow is the right choice. For myself, as I travelled with other 4 adults, I stay in the villa. It has a swimming pool located between villa and bungalow. You will never forget the experience of staying here!!

Room Tip: West bedroom is more convenient and it has a stunning view of the ocean and sunset

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 kerosene if they try to move in and nest in the buildings but they do a good job of removing insects that our hard working geckos miss eating so we tolerate their presence.... oh, and they dont bite!
