Handsome wooden doors open onto the villa’s bright entrance foyer, overlooking a walled garden edged with a profusion of pink frangipani trees grafted with white orchids. Separating the garden and the living room is an 18-metre pool (including shallow wading pool at one end) and sun deck lined with six loungers shaded by sunbrellas.
The air-conditioned living and dining area lies to the left of the foyer. Glass doors can be folded right back for a semi-outdoor living experience and instant access to the pool. A long dining table seats 10, while a sideboard is embellished with elaborate silver candlestick holders and a silver-framed mirror. The contemporary living area is furnished with teak sofas and chairs upholstered in a stylish grey and set around a square coffee table. An iPod, dock and Bose speakers provide entertainment.
The attractive wood-panelled kitchen, separated by glass doors from the dining room, is fabulously equipped and includes a wine fridge, coffee machine and mini bar.
Villa Cendrawasih’s TV room is equipped with an oversize sofa, 55-inch HD satellite-channel TV, Bose sound system and movie box with 250 movies. Bookshelves are stacked with a good assortment of novels. An adjacent guest bathroom is fitted with built-in wardrobe and a rain shower. This room can be converted to a fifth bedroom with choice of king-size or twin beds.
At the top of the stairs is a conveniently situated mini bar and a shady veranda leading to the spacious roof terrace encircled by pebbles, manicured lawn and flower boxes. Aqua daybeds and grey bean bags make a comfortable setting to enjoy expansive views that take in coconut palms, volcanoes and the sea sparkling between the trees.
The gym occupies its own glassed pavilion in the garden and is fitted with professional Life Fitness equipment, wall mirrors, weights, exercise bike, tread mill, yoga mats, TV and bathroom with shower. The adjoining terrace is topped with a large cushioned daybed.
