Villa LaVida – Virgin Gorda Villas

Villa LaVida is a brand new private villa located on the west side of Virgin Gorda. Every room faces the ocean, boasts magnificent sunset views and looks out over fourteen separate Caribbean islands. A short stroll down a stone path will take you through bougainvillea, jasmine and frangipani and down to the secluded white sand beach. Snorkel and explore fascinating rock grottos equipment or swim in the calm turquoise waters of the Caribbean Sea.

Features and Amenities

Swim in the infinity pool, or relax beside it in a hammock or chaise lounge on the poolside stone terrace. The three bedroom suites on the lower level of the house open onto this terrace. They all have king size beds and en-suite bathrooms with showers. Also on the lower level and opening onto the poolside terrace are a wet bar and a well equipped media room with a Bose home theatre.

On the upper level is an open concept living room, dining room and kitchen area with a vaulted, open beam ceiling. The kitchen is modern and fully equipped, with an island breakfast bar. Beyond the kitchen is the living room, and doors to the wicker and glass dining table on the deck. To the right of the living room is the dining room where an attractive dark wood table seats ten in comfort. To the left of the living room is an office. Also on the upper level are two bedroom suites. One suite has twin beds and an en-suite bathroom with a shower. The master suite has a king size bed, dressing room, and an en-suite bathroom with a large soaking tub, shower and double sinks. All these rooms open onto the upper deck with its charming seating areas to take in the pool, the beach, the ocean and the sky.


By mid-morning in Virgin Gorda, the sun worshippers have settled down on one of the many deserted beaches that fringe the island: Savannah Bay, Handsome Bay, or Big Trunk Bay. The pace of life is slow on Virgin Gorda, but if you don’t want to spend the day on a beach, there are plenty of other activities. You could explore The Baths, where huge boulders seem to have been arranged by a playful giant to provide a myriad of rock pools, secret beaches, and trails. Visit the Copper Mine standing guard against the blue Atlantic. Or just spend the morning at a hillside restaurant cooled by gentle breezes while you watch the ferries cross the North Sound far below.

Measuring just eight-and-a-half-miles long, Virgin Gorda is the third largest in the island chain. Dramatic slopes plunge from Gorda Peak to the turquoise waters far below. Not many islands offer the range of exclusive resorts, some of them the last word in understated elegance. There are other resorts accessible only by boat. The choice of restaurants will please the most discriminating palate. Whether you stop for breakfast, lunch, or dinner, you’re sure to find yourself lingering longer than you expected. Virgin Gorda has that effect on visitors.
