Room décor is based on cool pastel colours and double crown moldings and each room has its own private verandah that opens up to a view of the surreal garden landscapes. Complete with tall four poster beds, window seats, original artwork, and luxury linen a room can cost between more than the average hotel. Many visitors have particularly preferred rooms that overlook the rear grounds.

The rooms surround the Great Hall, which comes complete with natural stone fireplaces, comfortable and large scale furnishing, unique paintings, sculptures, and artifacts of the Pacific.
