A wonderfully mature tropical garden blooms all about the grounds of Villa Maly. Stepping stones meander purposefully among the plantings, showing off a profusion of tropical life — frangipanis, mango, ginger, orchids, lilies, gardenias, mango trees and others. It's the sort of botanical garden that should have identifying placards, an aim we plan to satisfy. It is a place to linger, whether with a cup of coffee after breakfast, or on a stroll after dinner. In the midst of Villa Maly is our singular pool, and an ample pool deck, perfect for sunbathing or a late afternoon apertif.
