View Puncak Air Manis - Padang in a larger map

Jalan Air Manis No 151, Bukit Gado Gado, Kel. Koto Kaciak, Padang Selatan, West Sumatra
(many taxi drivers know Puncak Air Manis Residence as “Villa Puncak”)
There is only one road to “Pantai Air Manis” or Air Manis beach.
PAM is on the left as you crest the big hill. If you start to descend you have passed the gate.

Puncak Air Manis Residence encompasses 3 acres of landscaped gardens surrounded by lush tropical rain forest. The mountain-top overlooks Air Manis beach, picturesque islands, and swell wrapping in from the Indian Ocean.
