Mandala House is a design lover’s dream among the paddy fields

With architecture by one of Bali’s most talented designers, Felipe Gonzalez of SUKYF, and interiors by Design 4 Corners, it comes as little surprise that Mandala House, located near Bali’s surfing paradise Canggu, has been voted one of the most beautiful homes in the world.

The owner of this spectacular 6,300-sq-ft property and luxury estate has a background in design and food and beverage, which becomes evident as soon as you set down your suitcase. Conceived with entertaining in mind, the ground floor is host to several areas dedicated to the pursuits of pleasure: eating, drinking and socialising. Among these, a sunken lounge, which recalls a Mid-Century conversation pit that’s been given a contemporary tropical twist, and an open-plan, double-height kitchen complete with palm trees stand out.

Clean lines and natural light inform the entire residence, which boasts five king-sized suites, chill-out areas, a screening room, a fully equipped boxing and training gym, and not one, but two pools – one of which features a swim-up bar, the other of which is glass-bottomed. Committed to catering to your every need, the villa also offers a number of services, from a personal trainer, to in-house chefs, masseuses and hairdressers.

If that isn’t enough it is located in Berawa, a peaceful green enclave that offers tranquility and stunning natural beauty, all less than a kilometre away from cafes, bars, boutiques, restaurants and some of Bali’s most beautiful beaches.
