Living room

The heart of the Istana is the central living room which rests in the middle of the main building. The most obvious feature apart from the stunning view is the long service bar on the east side. Towards the ocean (on the west side), are numerous couches surrounding a coffee table.

Paying homage to the cultural history of the island, the walls of the living rooms are decorated in long wooden carved panels which feature famous love stories from the Vedic texts carved in Sanskrit on the walls.
