The fan-cooled living and dining room at Villa Maya borders the swimming pool and features a timber floor and folding glass doors at the front and back which can be fully opened for a tropical living experience. A double sunken jacuzzi extends into the living space and overflows into the pool creating an attractive water feature. A flat-screen satellite-channel TV and hi-fi system with wall speakers provide entertainment, and WiFi internet access is available free of charge. The sitting area is furnished with a large L-shaped sofa, occasional tables, a funky suede chair and an antique coffee table facing the pool and garden.
Resting beside a fish pond, the dining area is furnished with a solid table and six cushioned cane planter chairs. Colourful local artwork adorns the walls, harmonised with antique Indonesian woodcarvings. A striking feature is the semi-spiral floating staircase, crafted in wood and supported by eight columns.
On the far side of the fish pond, within a pebbled courtyard, is a stand-alone kitchen fully equipped with an oven and four burner hob, a microwave, fridge and all the appliances and utensils that the chef needs to prepare meals for his guests. A set of five stone pillars create a partition between the kitchen and the dining area. A guest washroom is positioned to one side.
In one corner of the garden is a charming stand-alone living pavilion, open on three sides (one side is protected from the elements by sliding glass doors) with a large and comfy cushioned daybed running along the back wall, and two circular dining tables and armchairs at the front. A ceiling fan and colourful beaded lanterns hang from the high roof, and the picture is completed with soft white drapes and tablescape of traditional artefacts.
