Villa Wana offers total privacy and has everything needed for a fantastic, carefree holiday. Many guests have described it as having a unique, peaceful and relaxing atmosphere. It is elegantly designed and decorated in full harmony with the surrounding lush, green Bali nature. It has four spacious bedrooms each with its own open air bathroom. Each room opens to a large veranda with superb views to mountains, tropical jungle, dormant volcanoes and the Bali sea. A large wooden dining table with eight chairs forms the center of the veranda. On the veranda you will also find separate lounge areas and comfortable chairs and couches. Here you can take in the view, have a drink or enjoy the local cuisine prepared by our cook. In the evening you can experience the sunset over the mountains which is often a spectacular show of colors and listen to typical Asian sounds of cicadas and gecko’s. You will definitively appreciate the fresh mountain breeze in the evening.
The large tropical garden of Villa Wana is truly magnificent, very vibrant with coconut trees and beautifully shaped old mango trees. There is an abundance of Balinese plants and flowers and it is a perfect place to spot many local species like birds, butterflies and squirrels. Being in this garden is a nature experience in itself. Our gardener will be happy to pick mango’s, coconuts or a soursop from the garden for you to enjoy. In the lower section of the garden you will find a large swimming pool and a sunny terrace with deck chairs. A smaller, shallower pool with a seating area around the edges is attached to the main pool. Sit in this pool and have a drink while watching the sun go down. This pool can also be used as a children’s pool.
The garden has many shady places, provided by the mango trees as well as many sunny places for sunbathing. There are several separate private seating areas. One of these areas is a lovely traditional Balinese gazebo with exquisite wood carvings. There is a separate terrace for barbecuing. A full BBQ set is available for free. Many of our guests have enjoyed sitting around a bonfire in the evenings at the large fire pit. When the sky is clear, which is often, you can see volcanoes on the island of Java about 65 miles away.
The villa is located on a mountain ridge at an altitude of approximately 200 meters. The climate at this altitude is much more comfortable than at sea level especially in the evenings and nights. The position of the villa to the wind as well as its design enables the breeze to flow through the house which adds to the pleasant temperature.
A special and unique asset of this villa is that the water from all the taps is safe to drink. The villa’s water is from an underground mountain spring. It is regularly tested by government authorities and has always been proven safe. It is totally free of pollution and tastes great.
The staff team of Villa Wana exists of nice and kind people. As guest you have private staff for the villa. There is a private security guard who watch over the villa at night, a gardener/pool-man, a freelance driver and a housekeeper.

The villa is totally private, as a guest you have access to everything this luxury villa has to offer.
Dolphin watching tours at Lovina Beach remain one of the main nature attractions of this quiet and laid back coastal town in North Bali. What this black sand beach lacks in features when compared to the beaches around the island’s south, it makes up for with its frequent sightings of dolphin pods that favour these calm waters. Back in the days, every sunrise, local fishermen in traditional outriggers set out for their daily catches in the bay, and so did the dolphins.
This unique kinship between humans and dolphins developed over time – hunting pods led local fishermen to where schools of sardines and mackerels, and likewise, dolphins joined in for a frenzy following the cast nets. Occasionally, the cetaceans would breach the surface to check out on the action above. Fishermen now regularly take visitors for a dolphin watching ride to see their aquatic friends from.
