Villa Sunset is comprised of a main two-storey building flanked by a traditional wooden cottage from Java, which houses one of the six bedrooms.
The main building is characterised by a shingle roof and Timorese carved furnishings and doors. Cooled by natural sea breezes, the living and dining room has glass doors that slide open to the sea and sunset views; the room is furnished with a built-in, U-shaped sofa and equipped with a large flat-screen TV with a digital movie collection. Guests can dine indoors on a table for 12, or on the open terrace – there is no escaping those views! A fully-equipped, open-plan kitchen is situated on the far side of the dining area.
There are five air-conditioned bedrooms in the main building, two downstairs and three upstairs, all with wardrobes and three with daybeds that convert to a child’s bed (extra cost). The ground floor master has views from its king-size bed of the swimming pool and ocean; its romantic open-air bathroom is fitted with a shower and a huge bathtub carved out of a river boulder. All of the other bathrooms in the main building have standing showers and washbasins hewn from either river rock or marble. The downstairs guestroom (complete with ensuite bathroom) has twin beds that can be converted to a king-size bed.
The enormous upstairs master is furnished with a king bed, two daybeds and a desk and chair, it is complemented by a walk-in wardrobe and three huge open-air terraces, all with built-in cushioned sofas and one with a dining table with bench seats, plus views on three sides. The master shares a semi-open-air bathroom with a twin-bedded room, making it ideal for families. There is another king bedroom, with ensuite bathroom on this floor.
The sixth bedroom, resting a few paces from the main building, offers a romantic experience in the antique Javanese house. The air-conditioned wooden building is furnished with a king bed under a high roof and has a raised veranda on two sides, as well as a bathroom in a private courtyard, which is fitted with a shower and a huge river rock bathtub under the stars. .
Villa Sunset’s cliff-top garden presents a smooth lawn, a 17m lap pool and two balé pavilions for relaxing or dining.
