Both bedrooms have luxury mattresses with 1,000 thread-count linen, a choice of down or pillows, black-out curtains, large flatscreens with cable TV and Blu-ray disc players, plus both air-conditioning and overhead fans.
Master Suite in the Water Palace
An arc of French doors opening to the swimming pool defines the space of the glamorous Master Suite in the Long House. The curved wooden panels of the king-size bed and cabinets betray their origins as part of an antique Phinisi schooner, matched with an elegant chaise longue and dressing table.
The bed is cocooned in a curtain of mosquito netting that cascades from runners set into the ceiling – an innovative system that enables them to be drawn back for a sense of space during the day.
Non-slip marble floors flow into a large ensuite bathroom, with a dressing area, twin washbasins, freestanding bathtub for two, and a walk-in rain shower, open on one side to the fresh air.
Pool Suite in the Rice House
A uniquely flexible bedroom space, designed to delight youngsters, yet equally suited to a romantic couple, a family or just the kids.
Up wooden stairs (best suited to ages eight and above), lies a king-size bed (convertible to twins) and a double-bed set into an alcove like a ship’s berth. A second ladder leads to a small mezzanine with two sofas, one of which provides two single mattresses, allowing this unique space to sleep two adults plus up to four pre-teens children, or even six kids.
The bedroom’s polished timber floor extends through sliding glass doors onto a balcony framed by the Lumbung’s bonnet-shaped roof, with twin plantation chairs overlooking the villa’s pool and gardens.
Downstairs, glass doors from the bathroom’s dressing and vanity area lead to a pebble-floored courtyard with an open-air rain shower, while a small kitchen with full maxi-bar services the Rice House, its expansive daybed area and the pool itself.
The Floating Annexe
Guests can also rent this adjacent and fully self-contained one-bedroom suite, with a separate living room, giving a three-bedroom configuration.
