The Pink House in the garden has a kingsize bed and a bunk with 2 beds and would suit a family of 4. In the house are 2 kingsize suites, 1 queensize and 1 twin / single. Each bedroom also has a day bed that can be made up in to a single / twin bed. All 5 bathrooms have a shower and one also has a bath tub.

Style Notes

Colonial luxury. The Rice House is a beautiful retreat with high wooden ceilings, cool terracotta tiles on the floor, vintage doors and windows, and carefully hand-picked antiques and collectibles. Surrounded by tropical gardens, this converted colonial planter’s house enjoys stunning views of the paddy fields where bird life is abundant. We love the infinity pool surrounded by lush greenery and gently swaying palm trees, as well as the wonderful staff for whom nothing is too much.
