The walkways between bedrooms were built with indoor/outdoor flow in mind, with floor to ceiling screened passages and wood barn doors that slide open wide for easy airflow. Tightly spaced bamboo pillars line the passages for safety and beauty.
Each bedroom has a full master bath with large-head rainfall showers, stone-tiled walls and floors, and solid Travertine vanity counters for high-form aesthetics and function. Each room is designed with huge floor to ceiling closets with slated doors for good ventilation. A solid marble tub is situated in the central master bath with the seated view positioned facing the whale’s tail.
The first two bedrooms were designed to be level with the common rooms and terrace for ease of mobility. These two rooms share a staggered terrace with good privacy between rooms.
