Ambassador’s House Living
Ambassador’s House offers a wealth of living and dining space spread over two floors. From quiet tucked away reading corners to sumptuously furnished living and dining rooms designed for socialising in style, Ambassador’s House can be as intimate or convivial as you choose. The villa takes its name from previous inhabitants who include the Sri Lankan Ambassador to Pakistan, Iraq and Bangladesh.
Ambassador’s House offers a sumptuous fan-cooled living space spilling onto the deep front veranda, furnished with inviting sofas. To the front is an airy TV room with a deep cushioned corner lounge and TV/DVD boasting splendid views over the pool. This leads you to tough decisions: shall you rest up and read a book in the open courtyard or curl up for a nap on the rooftop lounges? The choice is yours.
