With spectacular white-sand beaches, turquoise waters, a vibrant culinary scene and a laid-back lifestyle, Anguilla is the quintessential tropical getaway. Anguilla’s villas have long been favoured by those who holiday there, including many famous faces, because of guaranteed luxury, seclusion, and discretion they afford.
The paradise Caribbean island of Anguilla has welcomed Alkera, a new, state-of-the-art villa, to the roster of incredible places holidaymakers can hire for an unforgettable getaway.
Cresting the Shoal Bay East hillside and boasting enviable views of the Caribbean Sea, Alkera overlooks internationally renowned stretches of immaculate white sand, and offers privacy, serenity and a striking design for up to ten guests.
A contemporary architectural gem, the villa masterfully blends indoor and outdoor living, with expansive glass panels, soaring ceilings and an open concept, so the island’s brilliant sunrises and sunsets can be enjoyed inside and out. The villa’s living areas transition to an outdoor patio space leading to a heated infinity pool with floating island platform, which then meets the ocean view.
An outdoor kitchen, bar and dining area is set amidst the lush gardens, with tucked-away hammocks and seating areas for moments of mindfulness, an open-air shower and an indoor garden, which all accentuate Alkera’s indoor/outdoor identity.
Inside, the decor of the five-bedroom, six-bathroom villa exudes a fun and modern energy, with bold colour pairings of ocean blue patterns and hues. Each bedroom’s decor is unique, with varying amenities including expansive glass panel doors, panoramic ocean views, walk-in closets, walk-out patios, self-contained kitchen units and opulent ensuites.
A striking aspect of Alkera’s design is buried just below its surface. Literally built on Anguilla’s limestone rock, a partially underground recreational area features exposed limestone, vaulted ceilings and earthy tones, creating a starkly contrasting escape.
Guests will also love the main kitchen where no expense has been spared, the generously outfitted gym and cosy office with ocean views.
Rates for Alkera start at $6,825 (£5,200) per night, which includes the services of a butler and private chef.
