The centerpiece and one of the defining features of Golden Pavilion Villa is the heated infinity pool. Majestically centered on the ocean facing deck, with views east, north and west, the 20x40’ pool will be your daily focus. Overlooking the pool and the views beyond is the 16’ carved Balinese dining table with seating for 10. Additional cocktail seating for 8 is available poolside for breakfast, afternoon tea or after dinner drinks. Additional children’s seating is available indoors. The dining deck is protected by substantial roof overhang and a roll down canvas shields the table from the occasional strong winds or inclement weather.
The entry courtyard is one of the villas unique elements. Covered with Jerusalem Gold stone and lined with imported Balinese footlights and statues, the courtyard is monitored by a hand carved, 1000lb stone Buddha who ensures perfect Karma for all that enter. The elevated entry pavilion with carved seating and comfortable cushions, is trimmed on three sides by the lily and frog pond. Gentle colored lights bathe imported statues and stone wall interiors at night. The courtyard is not just a pass through to the house, it is a destination and wonderful place to read and relax.
Landscaping at Golden Pavilion is taken as seriously as architectural and interior design. From the moment you approach the driveway’s security gate, one can sense something special resides beyond. Native ornamental plants line the road with complementary colors, sizes and textures. From ground shrubs bursting with tropical tones to towering palms of several varieties, you will appreciate the planning and meticulous care given to this facet of the estate. Walking paths through the fruit orchard invites exploration and fresh pineapple, guava, avocado, banana, lime and others trees provides your chef with many options. Additional paths and steps on the sea-facing side provide options for the meek and adventuresome. Wander just below the pool to a stone seating nook complete with table for drinks under a shady tree with massive views. To the west is an alternate route that leads directly to the ocean. A protected swimming grotto at the cliff’s bottom is available to the more daring but venture only when the north swell is dormant. Other paths to the east lead through the native brush to secret destinations with incredible views and ocean breezes. Off the property by just a few minutes by car or foot, is the stunning Little Bay Beach. Frequently empty due to the challenging road that connects it to the outside world, this beach is beyond description. Perfect white sand from end to end terminates in towering cliffs. Not a single rock, pebble, coral, seaweed or other undesirable standing in the way of your bathing pleasure. The sand is literally perfect and you can have the highest confidence leaving your water shoes at home. Watch as gulls and pelicans bombard the waters from their cliff side perches for tropical fish. Swim to the east just beyond the point and enter a magical sea cave with crystal clear water and rocks crawling with crabs. Conditions vary from essentially flat water most of the time, to the occasional crashing waves designed for boogie and body surfing that will leave you exhausted, well salted and ready for a cool beverage.
