Villa Kailasha comprises a series of single-storey pavilions, including a living pavilion and a dining pavilion, both of which are open to the sea breezes and ocean views. In one corner of the vast garden a two-suite guesthouse offers a peaceful retreat; in another, the master suite presents complete privacy with its own plunge pool, deck and bale (relaxation pavilion).
The living pavilion is divided into three sitting areas including a television-watching area with sofas, chairs and a large flat-screen TV with DVD player. To the front is a wide, partially sheltered stone terrace, complete with an alfresco dining area with a table for eight. Adjacent is a modern kitchen, fully equipped with an oven and gas hob, fridge, microwave and coffee machine.
The dining pavilion is furnished with two solid wood tables (one large, one small) that can be brought together to make a dining table for ten, complete with wicker chairs. This pavilion is set in a semi-walled courtyard and is linked to the main living pavilion by a short pathway.
The large master suite is furnished with a king-size bed and two wicker armchairs and equipped with air-conditioning, ceiling fan, satellite-channel TV and fridge. A ‘secret’ door, hidden behind a mirror, leads to an air-conditioned dressing room almost big enough for a party. The ensuite bathroom is fitted with a rain shower and a bathtub looking into a private garden with outdoor shower. A separate vanity area opens directly into the private, 6-metre plunge pool, opposite which is a thatched bale pavilion furnished with a table and two chairs.
The guesthouse presents two almost-identical suites within a private courtyard. Each room is furnished with a king-size bed and equipped with air-conditioning, ceiling fan, satellite-channel TV and fitted dressing areas. The bathrooms feature twin washbasins, rain showers and bathtubs set alongside picture windows overlooking private gardens.
Dotted with flowering trees and scented with exotic blossoms, Kailasha’s huge garden rolls down to a sparkling 14m infinity-edged swimming pool. This is bordered by a stone-and-grass chequerboard deck furnished with sunshades and loungers and with a large, comfortable bale to one side – all presenting spectacular views of the glistening black-sand beach and the ocean.
