Entered via a covered colonnaded walkway, the property unfolds to reveal a series of stand-alone pavilions, the most impressive of which is the open-sided living and dining room, fashioned in the style of a Balinese village meeting hall or wantilan with a high, two-tiered roof supported by wooden pillars. It is furnished with sofas, chairs and a large glass-topped oval dining table for ten. Next to this, the sun deck sports ten bold red sun loungers beside a 20m pool, which juts out towards the ocean and lives up to its infinity moniker, overflowing on all sides and with a separate hot tub at the far end. Another thatched pavilion runs adjacent to the pool furnished with a wooden table and bench seating for ten. Alongside this is a small shallow kids’ pool, perfectly positioned so parents can keep an eye on the little ones while they swim. And, just to spoil guests for choice, a third dining table is positioned alfresco on the edge of the beach. Further back in the garden, encircled by a koi pond, is a sunken, cushioned, chill-out lounge which doubles as a massage pavilion. There is only one double-storey building at Sound of the Sea; housing three of the bedrooms, with the master suite on its upper floor. Here, under a pitched ceiling, French windows open onto a panoramic deck with a romantic outdoor bathtub. This suite also incorporates an indoor bathroom with a walk-in rainshower, and a large sitting room at the back with a Balinese daybed, which can sleep one child. Located beneath the master suite are two bedrooms with ensuite bathrooms fitted with walk-in rainshowers and bathtubs. Both bedrooms open on to the garden and are blessed with ocean views. Finally, a single-storey pavilion close to the entrance of the villa houses two more ensuite double bedrooms, also with walk-in rain showers and bathtubs. These bedrooms are situated on either side of a media room fitted with a bar, a long built-in sofa, and a high definition TV and movie projection system, complete with a library of DVDs. All five bedrooms are equipped with air-conditioning, TVs and DVD players, all have queen-size beds apart from one (in the two-storey pavilion), which has a smaller double bed.
