Livingroom, dining and kitchen
The open-sided lounge area with its soft cream arches is perfect for family and friends to enjoy a drink before dinner. A large red L-shaped sofa and an antique Javanese daybed beckon guests to recline in style as they are cooled by ceiling fans or the gentle ocean breeze.
Come dinner time the eight-seater solid teak dining table is ideal for enjoying a home cooked meal prepared by the chef in the nearby kitchen. For those that wish to cater for themselves, the kitchen is fully equipped with stainless steel appliances, black granite worktops and a four-seater marble dining table for casual dining.
Games and media room
Above the lounge is the games room, with a glass balustrade to optimise views of the pool, ocean, rice fields and mountains. Enjoy a game of billiards here at dusk – a comfortable sofa is provided for onlookers. For card or poker enthusiasts, a small glass-top table with four chairs conveniently awaits.
Keep climbing and you will reach the air-conditioned media room. This is the ultimate den, with Bose sound system, huge plasma-screen satellite TV and DVD player. Kick back on the comfortable brown suede sofa and watch a movie, or take a seat on the balcony and enjoy birds-eye views across the palm trees to the ocean.
The focus of attention by the 12-metre green-stone swimming pool is undoubtedly the large Buddha-head statue that quietly contemplates the immaculately manicured lawns surrounding it. Here guests can absorb Asmara’s peace and tranquillity by putting their feet up on the reclining sun loungers, perhaps after a game of tennis on the villa’s shared court.
The gardens are just heavenly: frangipani and palm trees sway in the breeze, while red dragonflies dart amongst the vibrant heliconias and fish meander through the waters of the tranquil pond.
