This idyllic enclave overlooks the pristine sands of Long Bay Beach and the turquoise waters of the Caribbean Sea. Utterly private and sophisticated, the resort consists of three ultraluxurious villas, ranging from 6,500 square feet to 7,000 square feet. Each has its own entrance courtyard flanked by pools, fountains, and a lush profusion of palms, bougainvillea, and hibiscus, as well as an infinity-edge pool, expansive stone deck with Jacuzzi, romantic outdoor dining pavilions, and stairs leading to the flawless sugar-white beach.

The interior is no less spectacular, with expansive living and dining areas; bedrooms—all master suites—with private terraces leading to the pool deck; marble indoor/outdoor bathrooms; high-tech business ateliers complete with laptop computer with Internet access, printer, and fax machine; meditation spaces; and louvered windows that open to breathtaking ocean views and the sound of the sea lapping the shore.

A full complement of staff, including an executive chef and personal butler, attends to your needs, both on the property and off. Tennis, snorkeling, scuba diving, and sailing are available. Or ride the seas in the 32-foot fiberglass boat offered for charter.
