The impressive air-conditioned master suite is housed in its own pavilion separated from the living and dining area and the kitchen by fish ponds and frangipani trees garlanded with orchids. Stepping stones lead to a set of carved wooden doors that open to present a welcoming Buddha statue and private Palimanan stone terrace.
Glass doors reveal the suite’s TV lounge furnished with two grey-silk sofas and floor cushions for watching movies on the large flat-screen satellite TV with DVD player. Adjacent to the lounge, a small reading room enclosed by glass appears to float above a fishpond, offering glimpses of the swimming pool through an opening in the surrounding coral-limestone wall.
The bedroom itself, with its vaulted ceiling, dark teak floors, king-size bed and glass sliding doors, opens onto a private deck overlooking lawns dotted with coconut palms, and through to the crashing waves in the distance. A huge dressing area divides the bedroom from the semi-open ensuite bathroom featuring a large rectangular terrazzo bathtub, his and her vanities and walk-in rain shower. White shutters open onto a private garden bathroom with an outdoor shower encircled by six stone pillars and soft maiden-hair ferns.
Guest rooms 1 & 2
The brightly decorated air-conditioned guest rooms, located in a separate structure adjacent to the dining area, have been designed for children but can easily accommodate adults. One of the rooms has a queen-size bed with large flat-screen satellite TV and DVD player, while the other has twin beds and a small outdoor balcony surrounded by a lily pond. A corridor with built-in wardrobes connects the two rooms as well as providing access to the shared bathroom. Featuring grey slate walls and floors, with an indoor terrazzo bathtub and walk-in shower, the bathroom also has an outdoor shower with a cascading water-wall feature. Both rooms open onto a shared wooden deck with a daybed for relaxing.
Guest house rooms 1 & 2
Fifty metres from the main house rests Villa Samadhana’s two-bedroom guesthouse with its traditional alang-alang roof. Light and airy with cream walls and teak floors, both air-conditioned rooms feature queen-sized beds with batik throws, garden bathrooms with indoor shower and glass sliding doors that open onto a wooden deck bordering the immaculately manicured lawns. One of the bedrooms has a window seat to soak up the sun while the other has a daybed for those inclined to take an afternoon nap. Between the two bedrooms is a small living area with a self-contained kitchen and breakfast bar with bar stools.
