Villa Amarisa spans three levels starting at the lobby with stairs going down, and a lift connecting to the second level where there are four guest bedrooms, including a master suite with private balconies and wide sea views. Down on the ground level is a fitness studio with gym equipment, and the second master suite with direct access to the pool. Also found on this level is a huge living and dining area, with a fully equipped kitchen and breakfast bar. Floor-to-ceiling glass doors lead out to the 24-metre pool and shaded terrace with alfresco dining and plush sun loungers.
The villa’s lobby offers fantastic sea views through the ceiling-high glass windows, which may be overshadowed by the limited-edition red Ducati, flanked by ancient wood carved Indian pillars. Stairs and a lift connect to the lower two levels, where the wide sandstone-wall corridors and living spaces display original artwork and awe-inspiring antiques. The airy, open-plan living and dining area is the social hub of the villa, a casual and comfortable setting with an oversized L-shaped sofa facing the TV, a solid wood dining table for 15 guests with a large, chic chandelier, and two more sofas and a collection of glamorous wingback armchairs arranged around a coffee table. A great place for guests to sit and read or play board games. This room also features a full-service kitchen and a breakfast bar, perfect for that first cup of coffee. Just off the living room is a fitness studio with gym equipment and yoga mats.
Stretching across the front of Villa Amarisa is a 24-metre blue stone infinity pool with a built-in jacuzzi, and framed by a wide stone-floor terrace gazing out towards the water, shaded partly by trees. Three sunbeds offer the ideal place to work on a tan, whilst six shaded soft loungers give respite from the tropical sun. A solid wooden dining table seating eight guests faces the pool, a serene setting to linger over breakfast and admire the birds and colourful dragonflies swooping over the water. Stone steps descend to tropical landscaped gardens, where guests can take an evening walk and explore the gorgeous frangipani trees and exotic palms.
All five luxurious bedrooms in Villa Amarisa feature wooden floors with ceiling-high glass sliding doors leading onto a private balcony, some with stunning sea views and others with pleasing garden vistas. Each suite is unique in its décor, furnishings and artwork, and has an ensuite with spacious Moroccan-tiled showers and a double vanity.
