From the moment you enter the grounds of Villa Frangipani, it's like being transported into an undiscovered ancient civilization. A large cascading water feature greets you with a slate background and an intricately carved stone wall-feature. This sets the tone for what may be a modern villa, with every expected facility, but it's been dressed to make it appear as authentic and traditional as possible.
External stone statues, wall carvings and mature tropical planting fill the spaces and provide an interesting detail everywhere you look. And, on the inside, the theme is continued.
To the right of the entrance are two twin bedrooms with en-suite bathrooms, separated by a recessed garden feature. In front of that is another planted area with a path to a bathroom and then the pavilion that consists of the very well equipped and modern kitchen, with central island feature; a large living/dining area filled with artefacts, Buddha images and antique furniture; and doors connecting to the entertainment area via an internal garden. The entertainment area has a bar and, like all other rooms, has authentic wooden wall carvings and traditional ornaments. This whole pavilion has views to the sea at the front and the pool on the left.
Directly in front of the entrance, behind the impressive waterfall-feature, is a stand-alone lounge area with vaulted wooden ceiling and comfortable furniture. This looks out onto the long blue-tiled swimming pool, the lawned garden and out across to the beach and ocean.
To the left of the entrance are a twin bedroom with en-suite, a double bedroom with en-suite, and the mater suite all separated by lush recessed garden areas, complete with antique looking statues and carved stone wall features.
The master suite has a dressing area; a bathroom that has a large bathtub, with opening doors looking into the inner garden area; and a terrace area with outdoor seating facing the sea.
This is a villa that has been furnished tastefully with a range of traditional arts, crafts and designs used to great effect. Internal and external areas have been dressed accordingly resulting in an interesting, natural and authentic tropical ambience throughout.
