The Istana has two telephone lines. Fixed line PABX phones are situated in the audio visual room, at the bar, and in all of the bedrooms.

An in-house phone system is available to make calls to other areas of the villa, including to the Villa Manager or Butlers. Wireless phones are also available throughout the villa.

All phones are capable of making IDD calls (for which there are extra charges).


The Istana staff will provide services for incoming and outgoing faxes from the administration office on-site.


Connection to the internet using broadband is available on-site. The villa has a laptop which is available on request to guests, and WIFI facilities are available throughout most of the villa and the grounds should guests wish to use their own laptops.

Mobile Phones

Please note while there is cell phone coverage at the Istana, connection quality can be best described as frustrating. Inclement weather has a huge negative impact.

Friends and work (if absolutely necessary…) are best advised to reach you through internet or calling through the villa.
