Two beautifully appointed en-suite rooms with King size beds, both have access to an outdoor shower, wood-fired Hot-tub and expansive deck.
The SkyDeck villa has a large open central area with spacious lounge sweets, glass fireplace, dining room and interactive kitchen where guests can experience the intricacies of their chefs’ skills in preparing their meals, all whilst overlooking the deck onto this same wilderness.
