From here, an open staircase leads to the media room (which doubles as a guest bedroom) and onto a huge furnished terrace where sliding doors open onto two more guest bedrooms. A roof-garden walkway links to the facing pavilion which houses the master bedroom suite on the second level and one further guest bedrooms on the garden level.
