Ellerman House Villa & Spa
Slick modernity coupled with incredibly comfortable design principles is the ethos behind the newly created Villa & Spa at Ellerman House. Situated in the gardens of the world-renowned Ellerman House, the 'twelfth room' of the hotel was fashioned to offer a contemporary edge to the classic original, without compromising on the philosophy of service excellence. It even has its own butler to cater to guests' every whim.
A polished teak deck leads to the Spa with its contrasting pale oak floors and dark wood inlays. The Spa has two bedrooms that can be used either by residents using the Spa, or reserved for sole use by those staying in The Villa, offering five bedrooms in all.
A lift, like a modern gilded cage, connects all levels of the house. A curved staircase, the rail bound in leather, follows the lift while soaring, bronzed bamboo delivers a natural art form to complement the space. The living area is open plan and flows outdoors. The massive glass windows peel back completely, opening up the lounge, dining room and study to the magnificent views of the ocean.
A separate entertainment room, with flat screen plasma television, DVDs and CDs downloaded into the house's main server, leads into a hi tech stainless steel kitchen, fully stocked with delicacies from the best gourmet food shops in the city. At the top of the house, level with the tree tops, are three luxurious bedrooms each with a glamorous, Hollywood-style bathroom created with acres of Travertine marble, infinity mirrors, some of them etched with ethereal designs, and of course, top of the range beauty products.
The main bedroom, with a king-size bed, is decorated in a symphony in aqua and cool creams, and is defined by a bathroom that opens out on to the sea as if someone were on the deck of a boat. The second bedroom, known as the lilac room, is also dominated by a king-size bed, and has a striking Bali-style bathroom. The third bedroom, on the side of the house, looks on to the Twelve Apostles Mountains and has two single beds, both draped in plush burgundy and pale gold.
