Just nine residences are to be found at the resort, dotted around the gardens and all featuring private terraces for guests to take in the sounds of the jungle. Seven Contemporary Villas could win design awards for their stylish interiors, their planted roofs blending perfectly in to their natural surroundings. Fine linens, Bose sound systems and Illy espresso makers are the order of the day within, while their garden terraces feature jungle-facing plunge pools. The remaining accommodation is located in the Colonial Mansion, where a one and two-bedroom villa share expansive terraces and infinity pool, and can be combined to accommodate up to 11 adults for exclusive use.
Ample use should be made of the superb Jungle Spa complex, where you can enjoy pampering massages and treatments with local, botanical products, and take advantage of the sauna, Jacuzzi and herbal steam baths. To further enhance your wellness experience, an appointment can be made with the onsite Ayurvedic doctor who will tailor a programme to suit your individual needs. You can complete your wellness experience with a tailored menu in the fine dining restaurant, or simply take the chef’s daily recommendations feasting on mouth-watering organic fare, the freshest catch of the day, sublime desserts and signature cocktails.
