Stunning! I especially like the master wing with the open bathroom and private courtyard.

In Asia is the bathtub typically a fixture of the bedroom? Regardless, I love the idea.

One sees this more and more, in Europe and beyond: the bath---a tub, at least---as part of the bedroom. Perhaps it is the upstairs version of the open kitchen ?
