As one of the world’s most luxurious destinations, St. Barths offers a plethora of high-end hotels and villas; however, all seem to pale in comparison to the island’s newest exclusive villa: VIlla Embrace.
Villa Embrace is one of the largest villas on the island with four expansive levels that take architecture, high design and art to new heights, creating the ultimate St. Barths’ hideaway. Carved into the mountainside, the villa offers unmatched panoramic views of the sea and harbor, while also providing guests with exclusivity and privacy.
Villa Embrace’s five suites are individually designed to bring the outside in, with floor-to-ceiling windows and glass doors that overlook the Caribbean sea and disappear into the walls. From their suites, guests have access to two infinity pools, one of which is amongst the largest on the island, reaching approximately 100 feet. Each suite offers a private furnished terrace with an outdoor rain shower, or outdoor Japanese soaking tub, along with a Hammam. Villa Embrace also boasts the island’s only four-story glass elevator, which overlooks a private waterfall and living green wall, and one of the only private underground parking garages that can accommodate 10 vehicles.
To reflect an appreciation for both beauty and breaking boundaries, the owner drew from his own personal collection to curate 20 rare artworks from artists like Andy Warhol and Roy Lichtenstein.
As for accommodations, Embrace also features plenty of shared spaces for guests to gather, dine or relax. On the main floor, the Great Room offers seating for 12 while overlooking the main infinity pool and harbor beyond. Guests can find a unique fireplace and elegant 14-foot-long professional bar. Meanwhile, the adjacent Family Room is act as an ideal spot to host a movie night or engae in late-night conversation with custom Italian sofas and a handmade silk rug to set the tone. Detailed with Vladmir Kagan armchairs, the Games Room is perfect for passing hours while exploring the 8-game custom leather table, designed by the owners of the villa and fabricated by T.T.Trunks. Guests can even enjoy water views from the gym, which is fully equipped with Technogym equipment. As for dining, the villa has an abundance of options including indoor and outdoor kitchens along with a separate BBQ area with seating. Set on the top floor, a well-appointed office commands attention with custom furnishings including an impressive black nutwood and leather desk, as well as a private bar by Knoll. Outside, guests can relax in the private outdoor massage area, which includes an outdoor shower, as well as ample loungers, for guests over all three levels.
