About Mahatma House

Privately enclosed within a spacious walled garden with palm trees, tropical plants, sculptures and carvings, Mahatma House is a lavish five bedroom beachfront villa located next to the traditional Balinese seaside village of Seseh and just a few meters from a black volcanic-sand beach. It is the perfect location to get away from it all, while remaining close to the beaches, restaurants, shops and nightlife of Canggu.


All five generous bedrooms at Mahatma House feature the villa’s signature sleek black décor, polished black concrete floors and are furnished with king-size beds, and equipped with ensuite bathrooms and air conditioning.

Two identical master suites are positioned on the upper floor in each wing of the main pavilion, complete with spectacular sea views and roof terraces. On the ground floor of the main pavilion, the corner room has an ensuite with shower and access to its own private garden. Located at the far end of the garden are two identical standalone guest suites each housing a garden suite flanked by an open-air sitting room offering views over the pool and garden.

Living Area

At the center of Mahatma House’s main pavilion and overlooking the garden and swimming pool, is a bright and spacious open-plan living room furnished with daybeds piled with silk cushions and comfortable rattan chairs upon which to relax in and read a book or take a little afternoon siesta. Fish ponds with stepping stones link this area to the outer wings, one of which houses the open-sided formal dining room, complete with table for ten and the other to a more casual, dining veranda furnished with a low Japanese-style table with seating for six. Next to it is the entertainment furnished with comfortable sofas on which to lay back and watch the 42-inch flat-screen television.

Outdoor & Pool Area

Mahatma House offers a generous selection of outdoor living areas, both social and private. Relax under a parasol on one of the four oversized daybeds surrounding the gorgeous 18 meter infinity-edge swimming pool or enjoy a relaxing massage in the comfortable balé. Kids will love the wide open garden space, perfect for a game of tag or football. And at sunset, gather around and enjoy a cocktail by the fabulous poolside lounge which comfortably seats 12 and has a unique circular fire bowl lantern that illuminates the garden spectacularly at night.

Service & Staff

The friendly and professional staff are on hand to cater to your every whim and a security team will keep you safe at night, while babysitters and in-villa massage therapists are only a phone call away (at extra cost). Mahatma House’s in-house chef was trained at Bali’s landmark Warisan restaurant and guests will be in for an absolute treat with his refined and delicious creations. The chef always uses the finest and freshest ingredients, many of which come from the villa’s vegetable garden.

With its private and extensive tropical walled gardens, wide lawns and idyllic rural Balinese setting close to the beach, Mahatma House is the perfect venue to host a special event, whether it be an intimate gathering or a more lavish celebration.

Around Mahatma House

The seaside village of Seseh is still surrounded by rice fields and typical Bali life, yet the trendy laid back Canggu is at your doorstep with cafes, shops, spas and beach bars to explore. The beaches in this area have dark grey or black sand and while being good for swimming, they also offer some renowned and challenging surfing spots. A trip to the famous sea temple of Tanah Lot at sunset is an absolute must, as is the Nirwana Bali Golf Course, one of Asia’s best: both are just a ten-minute drive away from Mahatma House. Seminyak with its wide choice of chic cocktail bars, exciting nightclubs, lavish spas and elegant boutiques are a 20 minute drive away.

Mahatma House: 8.8/10
Average rating based on 2 reviews

The stay was very pleasurable overall. The villa and staff were both of high quality and I would definitely recommend Mahatma House to friends. The only two minor issues we had, were firstly the TV/Cable, as there was the confederations cup football matches on and unfortunately the signal was too poor to watch and secondly the pool towels seemed to be in short supply.

Jinesh Patel stayed at Mahatma House with a group of friends from 16/06/2013 to 23/06/2013

Villa Mahatma is an incredibly stylish villa. It is simple and very comfortable. Gorgeous setting, nice sea view from the upstairs bedroom. We had a lovely and relaxing stay.
