“…this house gets more beautiful each time we visit – hospitality outstanding!” Averill Family, Stoke Rowe, UK.
The house is designed in a courtyard shape featuring a central deep turquoise swimming pool. The floors and walls are light with polished white terrazzo and high ceilings are used extensively. The result is an airy, cool and fresh feel.
Living and accommodation areas are arranged around three large pavilions. The first provides a formal dining area with stunning views over the azure swimming pool in the garden to the glittering Indian Ocean beyond. Seating is flexible – either one large table for everyone or two separate configurations for adults and children. The choice is yours and the staff are more than happy to accommodate your changing requirements.
The middle pavilion provides a central chill-out area which is an ideal location for both socialising and serenity. Invisible by day, at night the fibre optics embedded in the pool mean that the stars twinkle both above and below you.
Finally there is an ambalama-style bar overlooking the beach providing the perfect setting for breakfast, lunch or sundowners. Watch the sun set, glass in hand, as your children crab hunt on the beach. The view from here is magical – day or night.
In terms of accommodation Auraliya has six double bedrooms. Beachside there are two family suites, which include two double bedrooms with a conduit bathroom. The front bedrooms on either side have eight foot square family size four-poster beds. The second bedrooms to each of these family suites open on the walkways overlooking the swimming pool. One room has a double bed, the other a double and a single bed. There are two additional suites opposite the dining pavilion; one with twin four-poster beds, the other with a large double four poster bed.

All bedrooms have spacious en suite bathrooms, tastefully designed with a white terrazzo finish and modern fittings. In every bathroom there are double basins, a bath, a shower and a central fan. Imported towel rails in each bathroom ensure that damp towels and swimsuits are dry and ready to go in no time!
