This classical beauty is a study in white—with a sparkle of color coming from the pool’s and spa’s glass tile interiors. A separate, private lounge area gives guests a place to call their own while still being able to enjoy the rest of the space, including the magnificent skylight, wall of windows, and the gorgeous woodwork found throughout the space.
