Pavilions at each end of the swimming pool form the villa’s elegant and cosy indoor living quarters. The fully equipped kitchen and dining room are housed in one pavilion, with the dining room positioned at the front corner to take advantage of the superb views of ocean and sky. A 10-seat dining table rests under the wooden peaked ceiling, and meals may be enjoyed in air-conditioned comfort or in the cool of a sea breeze by opening up the sliding glass doors. Wooden wall panels and flooring, as well as the Buddhist-themed artwork and décor pieces, add to the room’s warm and soothing tone.
The living pavilion features soft cream sofas, a home theatre system with 42-inch screen, and sliding glass doors on two sides to allow for natural light and optimal views. Keep cool with either air conditioning or the ceiling fan, and enjoy stretching out on the two triangular Thai-style floor cushions.
The 12-metre saltwater infinity pool is framed by a sand-washed deck topped with six shaded loungers, and a built-in sofa – plenty of choice here to lie back and soak up the views. Towards the back of the terrace is a convenient outdoor shower. A shaded lounge in an alcove of the central pavilion makes the perfect spot for sunset cocktails, while on the wide terrace next to the dining pavilion is a barbecue dining area with a table for six. Tropical gardens brimming with heliconia, bougainvillea and frangipani, spill down the hillside, adding colour and life to the tropical scene.
