Last renovated in 2006, Villa Nina is a simple but warm hotel, lovingly decorated by the owner/manager who has sourced objects from his world travels, local flea markets and his own personal collection of family heirlooms. From sculptures and oriental carpets, to gilt mirror frames, antique chests and other objets d'art, Villa Nina combines a number of eclectic styles that somehow work when thrown together, creating an inviting and homey atmosphere.
To the immediate left of a small Reception area is a spacious lounge with large windows that face the street. With comfy leather couches, indoor plants and lashings of rich colours, the lounge is a comfortable hideaway perfect for reading or early evening drinks (there's a well stocked bar). The lounge also doubles as a breakfast room where a buffet selection is set up to one side, while several tables spill out on to a private, paved courtyard. This charming garden features a wrought iron gazebo structure draped in burgundy voile curtains surrounded by an impressive bonsai collection, as well as gorgeous bougainvillea and orange and lemon trees.
