Avalon I comprises three interconnected pavilions fanning out around the swimming pool. From a traditional gateway, steps lead up to the open-sided living room, which also gives access to the upper bedroom suites of the master pavilion and the guest pavilion. Steps lead down to the garden level and the dining hall, guest cloakroom and media room. Behind, across a small courtyard garden, is the kitchen and staff service area. To either side is access to the master and guest suites. Beyond the dining hall, a sail provides shade for the pool deck while at the other end of the pool is the garden joglo.
Avalon I’s four air-conditioned bedrooms provide sumptuous sleeping space for from 8 to 14 adults in two separate pavilions. Each has a sitting area with TV and DVD player, and top-of-range mattresses dressed with plump pillows, snuggle-into duvets and crisp cotton bedlinen.
The two master suites are opulent in size, décor and facilities. Each comprises a large bedroom opening onto a huge shaded terrace on two sides with breakfast area and daybed, and an adjoining sitting room (where the sofas can be set up as two additional beds). Four-poster king-size beds and statement antique tables resting on polished teakwood floors help create a palatial sanctuary. The glamour continues into the air-conditioned bathrooms which feature statement bathtub, impressive twin marble vanities, rain shower enclosure and a huge walk-in air-conditioned wardrobe.
Two air-conditioned suites occupy a second sleeping pavilion – each with queen-size bed and sitting area for watching satellite TV. The downstairs suite opens directly onto the garden while the upper room features a spacious terrace with breezy garden-view seating. Both ensuite bathrooms feature twin marble basins, rain shower and a walk-in wardrobe. The downstairs bathroom has a second shower and a bathtub in a small courtyard, while the upper level ensuite also has a bidet enclosure.
