Chalina Estate’s main two-storey residence includes four bedrooms while three further guest rooms are situated in individual pavilions leading down towards the river. Each ensuite bedroom is air-conditioned and features black-out curtains, a flat-screen TV and DVD player and a small fridge.
Master suite 1 (Saffron): 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 which is accessed by a solid wooden staircase. Wooden side tables support 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.
A dressing area provides plenty of hanging space while 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.
Master suite 2 (Amber): 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.
Pool view room (Ginger): Downstairs, the queen-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.
Twin converted studyroom (Cinnamon): Also located on the ground floor of the main building, the converted study – which is ideal for children – features whitewashed teak beds draped with mosquito nets and polished grey terrazzo floors. Like the Ginger room, this guestroom 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 queen-size four-poster bed draped with a mosquito net and provides plenty of storage space. Ensuite bathrooms feature cobbled stone floors, black marble twin wash basins and rain showers.
