And US$72+ is at The Ledge by David Pynt (who is the guy behind Burnt Ends, Singapore - which ranked 59th in the world this year). Top bloke had a decent chat with him last night.

I agree completely. I would take this large pool with 180 degrees worth of unobstructed beach/ocean views over the Conrad DBVs. Same with you, the only person I have seen walk past our beach villa has been the workers who rake the sand once in the morning ... I only got a bit nervous because I doing my toilet business (too much info?) and whilst seated I could see past my bath tub, pool, plants and then they were raking along. But hey, those toilet seats are smart things? It opens up when I approach and when I leave it closes itself up.
