At night, the lighting gives a warm glow to all areas especially the third floor with its Balinese suite and living area and the cobalt blue pool surrounded by bamboo and palm trees. It was approximately four years in construction and every area evidences detailed attention paid to color, lighting, and furnishings. Yet - the whole feel is one of warmth and kick your shoes off informality.

The level of attention can range from unobtrusive cleaning services and total privacy to full hotel services with all concierge attention and all meals served.
