Lounges and Salas:
The Spice Lounge: warmth and comfort abound in this open-air living room, adjacent to the Dining Pavilion and overlooking the pool and patio. Splashes of zesty fabrics articulate the raised sofa lounge, with pillows and cushions in burnt orange, turmeric, mandarin and chocolate, off-set against a vibrant saffron wall with gold niches, creating an inviting and luxurious den and an always-shaded respite from the heat of the day.
The Sunset Lounge - is a spectacular roof terrace above the Dining Pavilion, open to the warm Thai sunshine and endless blue skies, with great views of the entire estate. Thick cushioned benches on all sides and a large Ottoman in the centre are designed for luxury lounging at sunset and star gazing by moonlight. There is absolutely no better place for friends to gather for a nightly sundowner, especially while dinner is being readied just a few steps below.
The Lava Lounge is on the ground floor of the Main House. Featuring a 62inch cinema display and ample sofa seating, remote control electronic black out curtains and acoustic ceiling, this room provides the perfect environment for the ultimate in viewing and entertainment pleasure. Day or night, this media room comforts and relaxes, with its raspberry walls, custom-designed velvety charcoal and shiraz-coloured cinema-beds, and nut-brown bespoke cabinets and book-shelves.
The Dining Pavilion - just below the Sunset Lounge is the main covered dining area, overlooking the pool and adjacent to the Spice Lounge. This elegant space seats up to 24 people, 16 at an enormous solid teak rectangular table and 8 more on a matching oval table, both provided with luxurious upholstered wooden armchairs. With its raised floor and oak-paneled ceiling, which features 9 well-appointed overhead fans, the Dining Pavilion has also become the main meeting point for guests coming & going from early morning until late at night; providing commanding views of the entire property and always enjoying the beautiful reflections of the swimming pool, and the waterfalls and patio which embrace the area.
The Dining Sala - is the alternative open air dining area overlooking the lake and the hillside that is frequently selected by guests for breakfast, early morning meditation or as the ideal venue for daytime meetings. This entirely wooden Thai style structure also sits at the far end of the water garden, offering privacy away from the main activity areas with eye pleasing views in all directions.
The Massage Sala - is a unique feature, being a stand-alone, fully-enclosed, Balinese-style sala (room) that has been equipped to accommodate up to four guests at one time each on special massage mattresses. The Massage Sala is also equipped for sound, allowing guests to be massaged by highly trained massage therapists in an unmatched atmosphere for body & mind healing and rejuvenation.
The Garden Sala sits peacefully at the far corner of the garden and serves not only to authenticate what is truly Balinese, but also to provide a truly private place for meditation, intimate conversation or just getting away from the crowd.
The Pool Sala - on the other hand, is a more modernistic Balinese sala located in the midst of poolside activity, providing the ideal place for an afternoon nap, poolside massage or simply to get away from the blazing sun. At night, it transforms into a magical place where its subdued lighting and pool reflections make it the perfect place to hide out with a special friend or simply be alone with the sound of crickets.
The Gardens & Water Features are collectively a masterpiece of design & execution produced as a collaboration by a leading American landscape architect and a Thai landscape artist & contractor. Having made the front cover of a leading Thai Home & Garden Magazine, the gardens & water features will not only amaze you, but will quickly provide a seductive backdrop to everybody in your party to chill out in complete harmony with nature.
The Tower - standing 18 meters above the high point of the site and situated majestically at the back corner of the compound, adjacent to the lake, the “tower” is a special place to escape to at any time of the day or night, where one is instantly rewarded with breathtaking views of the sea & surrounding hills…or for that special encounter with nature away from the prying eyes of others. This is truly a unique feature and a source of countless memories for all who climb its steps in search of the unexpected.
The Office is a blessing for all who desperately need to get away with their family, but who also must have access to an office to deal with the routine or unexpected. The facility is a magnificent feature, designed by an executive for executives, looking out in all directions from its 2nd floor command post, and fully equipped with all the gear that even the most fussy of executives will require, including PCs, printer/scanner/fax & copy unit, telephone and ample space for 3 or 4 visitors when an ad hoc meeting is called for.
Swimming pool - Serving as a central focus to the master plan and giving the resort its luxurious character, the swimming pool is another example of the care and attention to detail by the owner to create a symphony of visual stimulation for the overall enjoyment of guests. Featuring special stonework imported from Bali, a water-cooling system for the very hot times of the year and a “no sting” salt water purification system, this 22 X 12 meter pool is not only a joy for swimmers, but also the ideal place for lounging around its glimmering opulence whether for sunbathing on teak lounge chairs or simply enjoying a cool dip at any time of the day or night.
Tennis Court - No expense was spared to design and build a professional grade tennis court, with the latest synthetic surface, lighting for night play and wrap-around 4 meter high fence. Equally important, we have made arrangements with local tennis professionals to provide either structured tennis lessons or on-call tennis partners to match the skills and demands of any player or couple…all on short notice and at very attractive prices.
Gymnasium - designed by Thailand's leading fitness consultant, and beautifully appointed overlooking the lake beside the house and the Buraran Hills beyond, the gymnasium is also a masterpiece in design and interior fit-out. Equipped with the latest Life-Fitness systems & accessories, the gym is generously spaced to cater for up to 6 people exercising comfortably at the same time. The owner has taken special care with the design of this room knowing the importance of keeping up an exercise program even during the most laid-back and relaxing of vacations or company offsites. And for those practitioners of Yoga and Pilates, a large wooden deck area has been thoughtfully positioned just outside the gym, directly overlooking the lake and the Buraran Hills.
Petanque / Boule Pit - Being a game played passionately by the family of the owner, the resort's petanque / boule pit is another unique feature that has also been designed and installed with loving care, and meticulously incorporated within the much-lauded landscaped garden. This is a great family game that can be easily learned and included as one of the many unique and lasting memories that you will have when you leave our resort.
