Leela offers self-contained luxury accommodation for up to 9 adults.
Leela is a unique abode, consisting of two linked dodecahedrons, built on a ridge. The first twelve sided module incorporates the living areas, with the second housing the four bedrooms. Sweeping verandahs circle both dodecahedrons.
Guests will wake up to the sounds of the whip birds calling, be surrounded by a curtain of green as they look across and down into the forest and be nurtured by nature.
You will stay in an elegant home, which through its design complements and enhances the landscape. Situated to maximise valley views, tranquility and privacy, the house is provided with luxury linen and excellent furnishings and fittings. It is unique in both design and decor; its delights only enhanced by the eclectic array of adornments from some unexpected corners of the globe.
Fully ducted reverse circle air conditioning, thermostatically controlled heaters and fireplace will keep guests at the perfect temperature while staying at Leela.
Living areas, gardens and surrounds
Enjoy stunning and uninterrupted forest and valley views from the verandahs and every room in the house. Warm up in winter by the sunken circular firepit, with its surrounding granite seating. The living room features a wide-screen LED/LCD television with MyStar HD (The Works) catering for all viewing tastes (also including free to air HD channels). An accompanying Blu-ray DVD with a range of DVDs is also available. Complimentary (reasonable use) Wi-fi internet is also available to guests.
The house has four deluxe bedrooms. Two of the rooms feature king-sized beds, made from sustainably heli-harvested New Zealand hardwood, featuring an integrated Bose stereo with iPod connectivity. The bed bases can be tailored for small, medium or well built guests. The third double room features a luxurious queen-sized bed. The fourth room also has a luxury queen ensemble but can be reconfigured with 2 king singles.
Wake up to see the mists flowing through the valley ensconcing the house - experience the dragon's breath.
There are two full size bathrooms, each with a stunning view and linked to the bedrooms. A spa is available in the master bathroom and full size bath in the second room, with integrated showers in both.
