Taprobane Island was originally built in the 1920's by the romantically-named but self-styled Count de Mauny-Talvande. The island, with its neo palladian mansion, has played host to kings, queens, presidents, prime ministers, aristocracy, writers and eccentrics, giving it a very colorful history, which guests can now share.

The Island comprises two and a half acres of sheer tropical fantasy with nothing between it and the South Pole. Accommodation includes five en-suite bedrooms, with spacious living areas, balconies, verandahs, tropical gardens and a stunning infinity pool.

“An impossibly romantic island villa eccentrically accessible only by wading through the sea.” Conde Nast Traveller

Wouldn't mind spending a night or two on that island. Don't like the idea of wading through water to get to the gate though.

No doubt it costs and arm and a leg to spend the night on the Island, also those are some big puddles in #2 but rather nice reflections.

We had to navigate those puddles to be able to leave the hotel smile Thanks Camellia
