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 + one children’s bedroom with two bunk 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 with blue and lime-green cushions and spectacular sea views. Use the nautically styled pulley system on show and open the kitchen wall out into a bar for entertaining by day or night and to invite the breeze in.
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, a digital-touch control hob, unique stainless steel tiling and an extensive fridge freezer, 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 equipped with ice maker 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″ flat screen TV, indoor and outdoor music system, DVD player and sky dish. The lounge offers ample seating with a large L-shaped sofa and a long white bench to the side covered with vibrant cushions of lime-green, blue and orange. 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, Blue, sits a short walk from the main entertainment area. The room is aptly named – 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 is the second bedroom suite, Mosaic, suitably named after the beautifully finished tiling in the bathroom, again in contemporary style with aqua-marine blues and greens which fill the shower and opens out onto a private wooden balcony with views across the bay, allowing you to shower peacefully with nature. The bedroom has its own private balcony and spectacular sea view. Next door you have the third suite, Sublime, with attached lime coloured bathroom and a wall of glass to the end. The sight and scent of lime lifts your spirits, coupled with delicate pebble flooring in the shower, which tickle the feet, your senses are awakened. This suite also has a private balcony with views of the sea and the poolside. On the lower level sits a fourth bedroom suite, Copper-tone, the most private of all the suites, with a large private balcony and some unique features inside, including art deco lamps, mock wooden tiling in the shower and the pebble finish floor to bring the outside in. The fifth bedroom is a fully equipped children’s room complete with two bunk beds and adjacent bathroom (set out as a wet room).
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.
