Sungai Tinggi Beach Villa’s master suite is spectacular. Here, an exquisite collection of antiques and artefacts vie for attention with the ocean view beyond the private terrace. From behind the four-poster king-size bed, a Buddha statue casts its protective eyes over sleeping guests, while armchairs around a small round table provide a cosy spot for morning coffee. Hidden behind traditional carved doors is a dressing area. Equally impressive in size and décor is the garden bathroom, with open-air shower, twin washbasins and a circular terrazzo bathtub for two.
Main house guest bedrooms
Three guest bedrooms in the main house feature whitewashed four-poster king-size beds (two are convertible to twins), draped in mosquito netting and dressed with crisp white linen and batik cushions that contrast nicely against the Bengkirai wood floor. The two downstairs rooms open onto the garden, while the upstairs bedroom opens onto a balcony shared with an adjacent lounge and panoramic ocean views. Each comes with air conditioning and ceiling fans. All three ensuite bathrooms are individually designed – one has a sunken terrazzo tub, another an alfresco shower, and the upstairs bathroom a shower looking out over rice-fields.
The very private guesthouse at Sungai Tinggi Beach Villa has two bedrooms: a river-view master bedroom with a king-size bed, and a same-size twin-bedded room (can also be set up as king) looking onto the coconut grove. These romantic teakwood-panelled retreats feature antique armoires and distinctive Indonesian furniture, decorative Madura panels and black-and-white prints of 1930s Bali. Both offer air conditioning and overhead fans. These rooms share a bathroom fitted with a huge circular bathtub, monsoon shower and granite washbasin.
Optional extra bedroom
If extra space is required, a lounge next to the master suite and the study room beside the upper guest room can be converted to sleep additional two guests each (for a small extra charge).
