Beautiful decor, picture windows, wall mounted TVs and en suites complete the experience. Stone and porcelain bathrooms offer a combination of monsoon or rain showers and fabulous freestanding baths.

27 acres of private estate and just a short walk to the water's edge mean there is no real need to leave for the duration of your stay.
