Interiors are a blend of contemporary style with a relaxed and informal ambience. Dutch period antiques, plush sofas, and colorful soft furnishings are combined with contemporary art and sculptures, fresh lotus flowers and ethnic touches to create stylish interiors.
The main wallawwa consists of two bedrooms, a living and dining area opening out to the gardens. A newly constructed set of rooms and a lounge blends seamlessly with the wallawwa architecture. There is a spacious dining pavilion overlooking the swimming pool and gardens. Rock Villa can be booked by the room or as a whole and can comfortably accommodate 12 guests.
At the edge of the garden is the beach which is accessed by a few strides across the simple, single gauge West Coast railway line. Most find this occasional train interesting and unobtrusive.
The spacious open sided dining pavilion overlooks the 50 ft. swimming pool and the gardens. Other facilities include a TV lounge, books and board games; relaxing massages with prior notice; laundry service, room service, and complimentary WiFi internet only in the public areas. There are hammocks and sun lounges to relax in the gardens. The beach frontage here is relatively isolated and safe for swimming and snorkeling during the season from December to April.
Wallawwa Suite: This is the original two bedroom wallawwa which also has a living and dining room opening out to a private verandah with garden views.
