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. The staircase heads down to the garden level which hosts the dining hall, guest cloakroom and media room. At the back, across a small courtyard garden, lies the kitchen and staff service area. Access to the master and guest suites can be found on either side. Beyond the dining hall, a canvas sail provides shade to one corner of the pool deck while at the other end, you will find a garden joglo.
One of the most beautiful spots on the estate, the upper-level living pavilion is an elegant open-sided space comprising a large formal seating area and a games corner with a pool table. A level below, a formal dining hall with a three-metre table seats up to 14 guests and opens onto the pool terrace (where informal alfresco dining under the sail shade is an option). The media room is an air-conditioned sanctuary for watching a blockbuster, dipping into a best-seller, or catching up on emails at the pool-view desk. The poolside antique joglo is a traditional living space in harmony with its surroundings, and the bedroom terraces provide many quiet corners for contemplation.
Avalon I’s four air-conditioned bedrooms provide sumptuous sleeping spaces for 8 to 14 adults, in two separate pavilions. Each has a sitting area with a TV and DVD player, top-of-the-range mattresses dressed with plump pillows, snuggle-into duvets and crisp cotton bed linen.
Master bedroom suites
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 a breakfast area, a 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 a statement bathtub, impressive twin marble vanities, rain shower enclosure and a huge walk-in wardrobe.
Two air-conditioned suites occupy a second sleeping pavilion – each with a queen-size bed and sitting area with 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 have twin marble basins, a 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.
