The interior spaces are a perfect combination of taste, beauty and comfort. French limestone and exotic bamboo floors, Barbados coral stone walls, Venetian glazed walls are all part of the exceptional attention to detail. The furnishings are an exquisite combination of Asian antique and tropical colonial.

The poolside pavilion also has a well equipped bar and television. Besides the pool and outdoor spa you can work out in air conditioned comfort in the well equipped gym. Or arrange for a professional massage in your own private spa connecting the Plantation Green Room and Orchid Room.
