Chalina Estate’s main two-storey residence houses three bedrooms and the study, which can be converted to an extra bedroom, while three further bedrooms are situated in individual pavilions leading down towards the river. Each of Chalina Estate’s ensuite bedroom is air-conditioned and features black-out curtains, a flat-screen TV and DVD player and a small fridge.
This huge suite has incredible views over the garden and rice fields. A king-size four-poster bed with golden mosquito net and bright fuchsia and green cushions sits proudly in the middle of this high-ceilinged room between side tables supporting feathered lamp shades, while behind the bed, two white sofas contrast nicely against the dark-wood floors and artwork. Glass sliding doors open onto a covered timber deck complete with a comfy sofa and ottomans.
The ensuite bathroom offers a large stainless steel bath, wooden vanity with twin basins and a walk-in terrazzo rain shower. Guests in this room enjoy exclusive access to satellite TV.
Opposite Saffron on the first floor landing, the second master suite, Amber, also presents stunning views across the pool and garden. The netted, four-poster king-size bed sports bright turquoise cushions and white feather lampshades ornament the bedside tables. Furnished with an eclectic array of artefacts and artworks, this room also features a mezzanine level complete with TV and queen-size daybed (which can be used as an extra bed). A walk-in dressing room and ensuite bathroom with Palimanan stone floor, rain shower, stainless steel bathtub, and twin basins complete this suite.
Downstairs, the king-bedded Ginger room opens out onto a large stone patio area that looks directly over the inviting swimming pool. This room can be accessed from the garden and from a walkway at the rear of the building featuring enormous vase fountains cascading into a fish pond. Splashes of bright orange and purple silk and a white egg-shaped chair inject vitality into the room, contrasting with its polished grey terrazzo floors. Off the bedroom lies a separate dressing area and an ensuite bathroom with Palimanan stone floor, rain shower, stainless steel bathtub, and twin basins.
Also located on the ground floor of the main building, the converted study – which is ideal for children – features twin whitewashed teak beds draped with mosquito nets and polished grey terrazzo floors. Like the Ginger room, Cinnamon opens onto the large stone patio facing the pool and can also be accessed from the rear walkway. Funky Japanese doll lampshades light up the room while a white egg-shaped chair sits in one corner. The bathroom is identical to that of the Ginger room.
Guest pavilions (Paprika, Clove and Vertyver):
Three guest bedrooms face the pool in stand-alone pavilions set on lawns sloping down towards the river, each with a patio from which to enjoy the view. The three rooms are similar in design but feature differently hued bathrooms and individual artwork.
Each room is furnished with a king-size four-poster bed draped with a mosquito net. Ensuite bathrooms feature cobbled stone floors, black marble twin wash basins and rain showers.
Chalina Estate’s bunk room is adjacent to the study/Cinnamon bedroom and faces the pool and garden. All in white and with five sets of bunk beds, the room can sleep up to 10 children as part of a large family group booking, or 10 adults (for event bookings). There is a WC attached but no bathroom children can use their parents bathrooms, and 2 further WCs and a shower room are available at the bar area.
