Commanding centre stage of Long Bay, Villa Serene is the protagonist of Anguilla’s luxury villa collection. Walking along the shore, it’s charming, pastel-coloured façade proudly stands out against the backdrop of whitewashed houses. It would be the envy of passers-by, but its great location at the end of the beach means you’ll seldom see people meandering by: a perfect private paradise.
Inside, the pale, candy-coloured hues continue, creating a calm beach house perfect for a Caribbean sojourn. Plush corner seats in the living area make the most of the views from the floor to ceiling windows and dual-aspect windows. The theme continues throughout the main house with four bedrooms, the independent suite in the garden and two external guesthouses hosting an additional three bedrooms. An additional annex is perfect for a nanny or staff, but with a butler, chef and housekeeper at hand, your every need is catered for.
Only a few metres of powdery sand separates you from the lapping waves of the Caribbean, so in a few seconds you can be grabbing the kayaks and paddle boards and racing into the big blue. For those who would prefer to admire the beauty of the bay’s waters from a distance, the grotto on the beach complete with al fresco dining set up is perfect for sunsets and evening dinners.
Under the swaying palm trees, the outdoor lounge competes with the rocking chairs on the wrap around terrace as the perfect afternoon reading spot in the shade, and with the terrace leading straight to the pool, you never have to walk far for a refreshing dip in the swimming pool or outdoor Jacuzzi.
If there is such a thing as feeling too zen, Villa Serene has a flood-lit tennis court and well-equipped gym to get your adrenaline pumping. Movie nights are on the menu too: just ask your butler to set up a screening of your favourite movie in the TV room.
We think every box is ticked at Villa Serene. The only one left to tick is your visit.
