Aja, Trunk Bay

Villa description

Villa Aja, pronounced “Ah-Jah” (meaning magical in Indonesian), is a secluded luxury villa vacation rental, perched on an elevated headland overlooking the dramatic Trunk Bay beach on the north shore of Tortola in the British Virgin Islands.

Villa Aja provides its guests with a unique and memorable experience where they can feel pampered in luxurious surroundings, take full advantage of the spectacular location and feel close and integrated with nature, with the mesmerising sound of waves lapping the shore. Just a few hundred feet from the sea below, and comprising two separate pavilions connected by a central walkway and luxury infinity pool, Villa Aja is a two-storey, five bedroom property (four king suites plus one bedroom has 2 x king beds). This modern villa is minimalist in style with clean lines and vibrant art deco colours of lime, blue and orange, encompassing Asian and art deco fusion and combining modern furniture in an exquisite Indonesian tree-house layout.

A large Javanese door amongst extensive tropical landscaping marks the entrance to the villa. Once through the doors, you enter the heavens, a breathtaking spectacle as you look across dramatic Trunk Bay with the chain of islands from Guana through to Necker and a tremendous wash of turquoise blue from the infinity pool to the ocean below. To the right of the pool deck sits the living, dining and kitchen areas, entered through a large outdoor entertaining veranda offering welcome shade from the midday sun, luxurious day beds and spectacular sea views.

The fully equipped kitchen, a contemporary European design, offers state-of-the-art equipment and features, with all new stainless steel appliances including two dishwashers, and two full size fridge freezers, a wall of smooth steel. The extra high ceilings with exposed wooden beams provide a large open space, with suspended pendant light fixtures creating an ambiance by night. As well as being ultra stylish, the kitchen is practical in design, with a large centre island and plentiful cupboard space and conveniently connected to the living area for flexibility when hosting. The living area is built for entertainment with a 58″ Samsung TV, indoor and outdoor music system. The lounge offers ample seating with a large L-shaped sofa and a long bench to the side. The whole side wall slides open, inviting the cool breeze in and a spectacular backdrop of the ocean and lush hills.

The first king bedroom/bathroom suite sits a short walk from the main entertainment area. The idyllic scene from the large bedroom window offers a wash of aqua marine blues from the pool and the ocean all the way up to the cloudless sky, not knowing where one line starts and the other finishes. Across the walkway to the other side of the pool in a separate pavilion is the second bedroom suite, again in contemporary style; the bedroom has its own private balcony and spectacular sea view. Next door you have the third king suite, which also has a private balcony with views of the sea and the poolside. On the lower level sits a fourth bedroom suite, the most private of all the suites, with a private balcony. The fifth private bedroom suite with private balcony is on the lower level under the entertaining area.

The glistening waters of the infinity pool and large outdoor decking area lie at the heart of the villa, joining the two pavilions together, capturing the picturesque view of the beach below. This glorious stretch of unspoilt soft sandy beach remains nature’s untouched little secret.

Trudi’s personal opinion

A few years ago the only way to reach secluded Trunk Bay was either to arrive by small boat or else to scramble down a hill – actually, more of a mountain – through dense vegetation and over huge granite boulders. But having experienced the latter route several times I can tell you that it was well worth it to reach the pristine and invariably deserted beach. Now the hill has been graded, and a small number of sympathetically designed high-end homes have been built. Usually I’m not so keen on development if it means that a little piece of heaven has been lost for ever, but in this instance a beautiful home like Aja really does add to this exquisite area.

Aja is a truly outstanding villa, finished to an exceptionally high standard. It has been designed to take full advantage of the incredible ocean views available from every corner of the property (including all five bathrooms) and overlooking that wonderful beach at Trunk Bay. The view out over the deck and pool is almost too perfect to be real – but real it most certainly is! Several other spacious outdoor areas provide plenty of spots for alfresco dining, topping up your tan, or simply relaxing on deep cushioned sofas with a good book – Aja is the epitome of a relaxing vacation. Its two pavilions, with bedrooms in each, offer plenty of privacy for all guests, too. This sophisticated villa is the perfect choice for discerning travellers seeking seclusion in the BVI, and is an idyllic retreat for couples as well as for families. One of the very best. I adore this villa!

    Aja was fabulous, the location is stunning.  As a BVI resident I loved it, but my Irish visitors were blown away by the view, the location and the villa. Great facilities and clean, comfortable and well equipped. We did our own cooking and it was a fabulous kitchen to work in, very sociable and the on duty chef was always part of the party.

    The villa manager was brilliant, very thoughtful to put some of the drinks that had been delivered before check in in the fridge and cooler so the bubbles were already chilled when we arrived!

    We were satisfied with Best of BVI. Trudi was so helpful all the way through the process.

    I would rate Aja 10 out of 10. The villa was great, we couldn’t have asked for anything more. It exceeded above and beyond all of our expectations. The housekeeper was a very hard worker and very personable. The on-island manager, Chevone was great! Any questions we had were answered and taken care of right away.

    I couldn’t have asked for a better company to work with. I would love to rent another villa through Best of BVI! Maybe next year?! Everything was made very easy from booking the trip to enjoying the villa. Trudi was great to work with! She made booking the trip a smooth, and stress free process. Hoping to work with you all again very soon!

    We really had a wonderful time at Aja…a truly beautiful property with a superb setting. The villa is very comfortable as well as beautiful. Aja met our expectations – it was just as beautiful as the pictures if not more! Aja is a lovely villa that we would return to in the future.

    Trudi is the greatest and she responded to our many questions right away before we went on our trip. She is very knowledgable and helped to make our vacation so wonderful by providing us with a lot of information ahead of time.

    I highly recommend The Dove restaurant in Road Town… we liked it so much we ate there twice. Thanks Trudi for all of your great advice and help!

    I am glad I am so busy [after returning home] so I don’t find the time missing Tortola and the stunning villa. Aja is so far the best place in Tortola. It is a pleasure working with you and I love to talk to you on the phone.
