Ambassador’s House comprises two generously proportioned buildings seamlessly connected by a lush palm-shaded courtyard. In the single-storey building at the front of the villa is the large and elegant living room, whilst the dining areas and five ensuite air-conditioned bedrooms occupy a two-storey building behind. Three of these bedrooms open directly onto the pool through arched doorways whilst the master bedroom and a twin room are situated on the first floor, opening onto the roof terrace.
All five of the beautiful bedrooms at Ambassador’s House come with both air conditioning and ceiling fans and feature contemporary ensuite bathrooms with hot-water rain showers (plus a moulded tub in the master) beautifully finished in smooth terrazzo. Romantic four-poster beds are dressed in the crispest cotton sheets and shrouded in soft mosquito netting.
On the first floor, the master bedroom and twin bedroom are both characterised by soaring ceilings and polished timber floors. The large master bedroom is fitted with a dreamy four-poster king-size bed and has its own lounge area, while the airy twin room comes with a pair of four-poster, extra-large single beds.
On the ground floor, and opening through pretty arched doorways onto the pool, are three bedrooms, similar in size, layout and design, each furnished with a king-size four-poster bed.
Ambassador’s House offers a wealth of living and dining space spread over two floors. From quiet tucked away reading corners to sumptuously furnished living and dining rooms designed for socialising in style, Ambassador’s House can be as intimate or convivial as you choose.
Expansive yet elegant, the living room spills invitingly onto the double-colonnaded veranda at the villa’s front; it’s easy to imagine what a favourable impression this majestic room would have made on the distinguished diplomats entertained here in the past. Two huge wall mirrors emphasise the proportions of this beautiful high-ceilinged room which is cooled by whirring ceiling fans.
Beyond a pretty palm-shaded courtyard, the dining room is dominated by a table for ten set beneath another pair of oversized mirrors suspended dramatically from the wall. Next to the dining room is a fully equipped kitchen and to the front is an airy TV room with a deep cushioned corner lounge and TV / DVD player boasting splendid views over the pool. A smaller dining table is located in the courtyard.
Enhanced by a border of fuchsia and tangerine bougainvillea that tumbles gently towards the pool below, the dual-level roof terrace offers further space for relaxation. The upper terrace is shaded, while the lower deck offers the best pool views and sunniest lounging spots. A guest washroom is situated to the rear of the terrace.
