Summerville has the air of a country cottage, Castlereagh has an eclectic style, and they sit opposite each other on the shores of the Castlereagh lake.

Tientsen, furthest away from the others in the next valley, is unashamedly colonial and Norwood is more modern, at the end of the valley away from Summerville and Castlereagh.

Each one comes with its own manager, chef, butler and houseboys and between four and six luxurious suites. The bedrooms are very spacious, with four-poster beds, lavish bathrooms and each bungalow has elegant dining and drawing rooms. Open log fires adds warmth when necessary.

The beautiful gardens are the perfect place to relax amongst tropical plants while absorbing the breath-taking views. The gardens also feature sun-decks and summer houses where traditional English Cream Teas are served by the bungalows' resident butler.

The effect is quintessentially luxurious and colonial; a stroll back in time but with all modern amenities.
