In Malaysia, a traditional Istana is a palace. A residence designated the status of Istana is fit only for royalty, for a raja and his family. As are each of the Istana Signature Villas at 1 Khandala Valley.
These superbly-designed, modern-contemporary, three-tiered, terraced marvels, are of about 6000 sq. ft., located on plots upwards of 15000 sq. ft. Every villa hugs the hillside, to rise several levels, and gives you a spectacular view from every floor. Four palatial bedrooms open out on to private verandas, with uninterrupted views of Duke’s Nose above, and the surrounding valleys. An infinity pool stretches across the length of the deck and almost seems to drop into the valley beyond.
At 1 Khandala Valley, everything is built to last. Each home is designed to let in the maximum air and light, with floor-to-ceiling windows. There’s even an outdoor rain shower. Each villa has its own beautifully landscaped, well-maintained garden, abundant with perennially-flowering shrubs and trees that are indigenous to the region.
Don’t expect too much conversation from your guests: They’ll be torn between gaping at your majestic home and staring at the heavenly views beyond. Istana
