The Bedrooms

There are four air-conditioned bedrooms at Villa De Suma, two upstairs and two downstairs, paired in the standalone double-storey pavilions at either end of the swimming pool. Each features a polished-concrete tiled floor and floor-to-ceiling windows overlooking the pool, and each is equipped with a safe deposit box, an independently controlled satellite-channel TV, a DVD player, and an iPod dock. Three of the bedrooms are furnished with king-sized beds and one is furnished with Hollywood twin beds that convert to a king-sized bed if required. Other furnishings include small sofas and antique chairs, Chinese chests of drawers, bedside tables and reading lamps. Each of the upstairs bedrooms is accessed by an external staircase and each has a high, timber-lined roof and a ceiling fan as well as air-conditioning, and a wide wooden balcony supported by rustic recycled timber pillars and sheltered by a roof. Each bedroom is adjoined by an en-suite bathroom incorporating a large dressing area fitted with wardrobes, a wide washbasin, toilet, and a walk-in monsoon shower with a handheld option under a pergola roof. All needs are considered with wall mirrors lit by custom-made lanterns. The upstairs bathrooms are fitted with bathtubs, while the downstairs bathrooms open to private corners of the swimming pool adjacent to sheltered pool deck terraces.
