Villa Shambala’s three single-storey pavilions all face the 20-metre pool. The villa’s main living pavilion lies at the far end and houses the master suite, garden bedroom, living and dining areas, media lounge and well-appointed modern kitchen.
The guest pavilion is situated in complete privacy at the opposite end of the pool and comprises three ensuite bedrooms and the second TV room.
At the side of the pool is a private air-conditioned spa room with two massage beds, while comfortable outdoor seating and sun loungers are thoughtfully arranged poolside and throughout the gardens.
The master suite in the main pavilion invites romantic nights and lazy mornings with its luxurious king bed under an exquisite hand-carved teak canopy, spacious bathroom with rain shower and a semi-sunken stone tub, and floor-to-ceiling glass doors opening onto the tranquil lily pond garden.
Also in the main pavilion, the garden room is perfect for relaxing and romancing with its four-poster king bed with net canopy, ensuite garden bathroom with stone tub and rain shower, and outlook to the lily pond and water feature.
The three bedrooms in the separate guest pavilion are beautifully appointed with king beds, ensuite courtyard bathrooms, plush interiors and natural finishes.
These bedrooms face onto a central TV room and are ideal for children or extended family groups as the beds can also be configured as twins.
All bedrooms are air-conditioned.
Villa Shambala offers many delightful options for socialising with your group, relaxing with that special someone or taking some time out on your own.
The light and breezy living room features a huge U-shaped couch set around a coffee table and glass doors opening onto the shade-dappled deck, where you will find more couches and lounges.
There are two dining options – the elegant indoor dining area where a table for ten makes the perfect setting for a dinner party, or, for alfresco meals, there’s a generous twenty-seat table in the barbecue area.
The chic, custom kitchen is designed to be as pleasing to holiday cooks as it is to guests who would prefer to take a back seat at the breakfast bar and watch the villa’s private chef do the work.
The media lounge in the main pavilion is fitted out with deep sofas, a massive digitally projected screen, DVD player and satellite TV with surround-sound, and an extensive library of DVDs and CDs. Or, if you want to go low tech, there are shelves of books and games.
The TV lounge in the guest pavilion features comfy couches, large screen TV and DVD player. WiFi is available throughout the villa.
Double spa room
The delightfully private spa room has two massage beds for in-house treatments, which can be easily arranged by the villa manager.
