On the ground floor, guests will discover a spacious and stylish living room, dining room, library and home cinema, as well as a hammam and spa treatment area. There are also four double-bed suites here, each with wonderfully unique features including a plunge bath in the Tortoises Suite, a dressing room in the Donkey Suite, a circular plunge bath and lounge in the Geese Suite, and a rain shower in the Bee Bedroom.
