Virgin Gorda

Amateras, Princess Quarters

Villa description

Amateras is a luxury 5000 square-foot estate-villa in the British Virgin Islands. Perched on 1.5 acres of hilltop and set among the spectacular boulders found only in Virgin Gorda, the villa offers dramatic 360-degree views of both sunrise and sunset over the Atlantic Ocean and Sir Francis Drake Channel. Amateras provides its guests with one of the most spectacular vacation settings on the island. With three independently appointed pavilions, Amateras’ accommodation is ideal for two families and their children, or for four couples. The villa includes two air-conditioned two-bedroom cabanas, the main house, a covered gazebo, a private pool and a multitude of decks each with magnificent views.

The main house at Amateras was designed to fully capture the dramatic views in every direction and create the ultimate in indoor/outdoor living. The living space encompasses a number of seating areas with French doors leading to a multitude of decks with a professional kitchen at the centre. The state-of-the-art chef’s kitchen is fully equipped with stainless steel appliances and a full complement of dinner and glassware and has stunning views of the Atlantic through the living room and of Drake’s Channel through the formal dining space. There is a dining area in the main house as well as on the substantial covered terrace. The main house also includes a loft with its own terrace for yet another tranquil spot for relaxing.

Amateras offers two separate two-bedroom cabanas, each with air-conditioning, a kitchenette, French doors leading to private decks and two full, separate bathrooms with outdoor showers. One bedroom includes a king-sized bed, and the second accommodates either two twin beds or king bed.

Trudi’s personal opinion

Amateras is a wonderfully spacious villa located on Windy Hill, Virgin Gorda – and as a result offers some stunning all-round views of the nearby ocean. I love the fact that you can not only watch the sun rising, but at the end of the day see it setting, too! Truly unique in design, the villa offers plenty of privacy for all guests, but ample room in which to socialise, too. The two bedroom pavilions, each housing a pair of rooms – two kings (or one king and one twins) – are situated some distance from each other, among mature tropical planting, and a wonderful display of bougainvillea in just about every colour imaginable. No less appealing are the huge granite boulders for which Virgin Gorda is well known – you’ll see those all around the property, and even in the bathroom!

The main pavilion offers plenty of areas for relaxing while taking in the beautiful views from the living area overlooking Taylors Bay with a backdrop of Gorda Peak. At 1370 feet that’s the highest point on Virgin Gorda, and the second-highest point anywhere in the BVI. The views from the pool area look out in the opposite direction, taking in the Sir Francis Drake Channel and the many outlying islands dotted in the Caribbean Sea.

Amateras is furnished to a very high standard. The soothing and relaxing bedrooms have en suite contemporary bathrooms, and wonderful outdoor showers. The result is an extremely comfortable villa that’s just perfect for guests seeking a quiet and relaxing vacation, yet it’s only a few minutes’ drive from the world-class beaches at Savannah Bay and Spring Bay – among others. The world-famous Baths, with more of those extraordinary boulders as big as houses, along with local shops and restaurants, are all within 10 minutes’ drive of this lovely villa. Highly recommended!
