Description
Privately situated on four gated acres perched above quiet and secluded Little Bay, Tortola.This illustrious 5000 square foot, Balinese-inspired villa has four bedrooms and four and a half baths in the main house and an additional Guest Cottage apartment with its own kitchen, bedroom, and bathroom.

The property features stunning 180 degree ocean views, heated infinity pool, hot tub, outdoor gas fire pit, second floor gallery with wet bar and pool table, media room with large flat screen TV and surround sound, office with fax/pc/wireless internet, a fully equipped gym, air conditioning in all primary rooms and a private chef. Traditional Indonesian sculptures, art, and furnishings fill the public spaces and the villa is decorated with a refined, distinctly British-Colonial flair. All bedrooms are elegantly appointed with imported four-poster beds, exotic fabrics, and heavy blackout draperies. Spa services are also available and boating and other outings can be arranged for your additional enjoyment.

Located on the east end of Tortola, Golden Pavilion Villa (GPV) is a 7-minute walk from secluded Little Bay Beach and a 15-minute drive to Road Town. Direct ocean access is available from the property for the adventuresome. The estate manager lives in a nearby property and will assure your privacy while providing for all of your needs.

Airport greeting, baggage transfers, rental car facilitation and escort to the estate by the house manager will ease your arrival. Just 15 minutes from the airport, a long, winding dirt road leads you to a gated and secure entry. The driveway serpentines through the extensively landscaped property, down the hillside to the arrival courtyard. Complimentary arrival drinks and snacks will be served followed by an introductory tour.

Golden Pavilion Villa is a unique property, unparalleled in Tortola. The villa presents Zen tranquility and privacy juxtaposed with modernity and meticulous details. Walking gardens, paths leading to sunken stone retreats and sitting areas nestled under mature plantings at cliff’s edge. Tropical birds ride warm breezes up the cliff to sip from the infinity pool. Turtles, rays and the occasional whale can be seen from the deck. Breathtaking views complement the highest building standards with imported granites, marbles, fittings, appliances and furnishings; Golden Pavilion comforts the eye and soothes the soul.

Getting Here...
Tortola is the largest of the British Virgin Islands and is situated just north-east of St. Thomas and St. John, USVI. The local airport at Beef Island can be reached by regularly scheduled flights on Cape Air, Seaborne Airlines, and Inter Caribbean connecting through San Juan, Puerto Rico. Private group and individual charters are available through the connection in San Juan and St. Thomas and most other Caribbean airports. Tortola may also be reached via ferry service from neighbouring islands. Private non-stop jet travel from most locations can be arranged upon request.

Guests will be greeted at the airport or ferry dock by the house manager who will arrange for baggage transfers and rental cars. A sturdy 4-wheel drive vehicle is highly recommended due to the unpaved access road. Additional transfer capacity is available in GPV’s 9 seat Land Rover Defender station wagon. Greetings and an introductory tour will be accompanied by a welcome drink and snack.

Additional paths and steps on the sea-facing side provide options for the meek and adventuresome. Wander just below the pool to a stone seating nook complete with the table for drinks under a shady tree with massive views.

To the west is an alternate route that leads directly to the ocean. A protected swimming grotto at the cliff’s bottom is available to the more daring but venture only when the north swell is dormant.

Other paths to the east lead through the native brush to secret destinations with incredible views and ocean breezes.
