Wijaya is an authority on regional architect and wanted in this villa to showcase the elegant bungalow style of Trengganu in Malaysia, the home of some of Malaysia's most handsome colonial/traditional buildings. The interiors feature textiles by Lady Victoria Waymouth, and many antique pieces. An airy, independent bath-house, connected to the house, has a great view across the river valley. The bungalow has a wide verandah. Francis and Eleanor Coppola stayed in the Malay House while conceptualizing their Belize beach hotel, The Turtle Inn.
