Mandala. The Bay – Rediscovering Hidden Bali

M. Group launches its fourth of Mandala Places – Mandala. The Bay, a five-bedroom villa on the island of Nusa Lembongan in Bali.

  • October 11, 2019

Mandala Places is a collection of privately owned and design-led residences in spectacular Balinese locations. Conceptualized around clean, flowing lines, their open airy spaces mix raw elements with warm and elegant finishes to create private refuges. Mandala Places sits within M. Group, a leading, vertically integrated hospitality group that specializes in developing, managing, and operating prime real estate assets and premium hospitality businesses in Southeast Asia.

The newest residence is only a 30-minute boat ride from busy Bali. Surrounded by crystal clear waters that are perfect for diving, surfing, and snorkeling, the island can be hiked in two hours and is dotted with pristine white sandy beaches.

Mandala.The Bay’s Living Room

Mandala. The Bay’s design blends traditional Balinese architecture with modernist interiors, finishes, and artworks, boasting five individually-designed king bedrooms spread over 1200 square meters. Indoors and outdoors are seamlessly connected to create large, light-filled, and airy escapes for the cliff-side villa. Stand out elements include a master bedroom housed in a Joglo structure carved from teak, the perfect entertaining space which includes a bar designed to professional standards, an ocean-view swimming pool, lush outdoor bathrooms, and a relaxing library refuge.

The residence also comes with gardens that are colored with fragrant frangipani trees and bright pink bougainvillea, the perfect setting for long, lazy lunches under the pergola in the outdoor dining area. Towards the cliff’s edge sits a remarkable and unique hidden firepit that is surrounded by banquette seats carved from rock in the cliffside. A feature unlike any other, it offers sunset views and directly faces the wild and dramatic beauty of crashing waves at iconic Devil’s Tear across the bay.

Since the launch of our first residence 4 years ago, we have been delivering to guests service and experience on par with any five-star hotel, adding the escape and discretion of a private villa. We are thrilled to add our fourth property to the portfolio – Mandala. The Bay as we continue to expand into the most beautiful locations across the island.”
