The trend toward villa rentals is hot right now among luxury travelers, as they offer a more private, exclusive, and personalized experience than a typical resort stay. Villas often come with private pools, dedicated staff, and spacious accommodations, creating a more intimate and tailored environment compared to larger resorts.
Villas may provide a sense of seclusion and tranquility that might not be as easily achieved in a bustling resort setting. Villas are especially appealing to multi-generational families, honeymooners, and small groups of friends who want all the comforts of home while on vacation.
A host of luxury resorts offer villa accommodations, drawing in travelers who want to combine a more comfortable, spacious home environment with all the amenities of a high-end resort. Here are some top Caribbean villas for a luxury getaway…
A delightful beachfront retreat that makes any Caribbean dream vacation a reality, Sandy Cove is a light and airy luxury villa at the all-inclusive Jumby Bay Island resort. The beachfront, sea view villa sleeps up to 8 people and is over 4,330 sq feet, perfect for multi-generational families.
Jumby Bay is a private island off the coast of Antigua known for its stunning white sandy beaches, crystal blue waters, and lush tropical landscapes. The island offers exclusive accommodations in villas and estate homes, along with various upscale amenities including gourmet dining, spa services, and water sports of all kinds. Accessible only by boat, Jumby Bay Island provides a secluded and tranquil retreat for those seeking a high-end tropical getaway.
Sandy Cove is an ideal villa for a luxury Caribbean getaway. It features a welcoming entrance hall leading to a large open-plan living room and pool terrace, a modern kitchen, choice of two dining areas seating up to ten guests, and four air-conditioned double bedrooms with en-suite bathrooms. I love the casual beachy vibe of Sandy Cove. It just exudes barefoot luxury.
The pinnacle of island bliss can be found at Baoase’s Master Villa, the “pearl” of Baoase Luxury Resort, Curacao and the house that started it all. The 1-bedroom, 1-bathroom villa has breathtaking panoramic views reaching all the way to the colorful buildings of Willemstad and a private infinity pool. The villa also features a luxury cave with a whirlpool, bar, and fitness/relaxation area.
Baoase is a five star resort offering a blend of natural beauty and upscale amenities. I’m obsessed with the Balinese-style of the property, its private beachfront villas and suites nestled amid lush gardens overlooking the crystal-clear Caribbean sea. The resort’s architecture actually incorporates both Asian and Caribbean influences, creating an elegant and serene atmosphere. Guests enjoy world-class dining (see my blog post about Baoase’s incredible food HERE), highly personalized service, a spa, and a range of water activities.
The Master Villa comes with a personal chef, a butler, and the use of a private beach. The fully equipped kitchen and open living room connects to the spacious deck and private infinity pool creating an easy breezy flow. The villa has hardwood floors and high colonial ceilings, making it a luxurious personal oasis to relax and unwind.
