Villa Jade is an incredible 8-bedroom property is located in Marigot, hillside, and offers a splendid view over Marigot Bay and Turtle Island.
Villa Jade is a utopia, a dream that became reality by the will and the love of its owners, a tribute to Asia with its discreet traits of modernity and timelessness.
Upon entering the villa the Asian influence becomes apparent: a small wooden bridge straddles a pond of water lilies and reeds where koi carp peacefully swim. This is bordered on one side by a wall of pebbles over which water cascades. After the “Zen” greeting at the small entrance where two benevolent Buddhas reign, we enter the large living room through a spectacular round glass door containing fuchsia orchids within, giving an amazing visual effect at dusk when they are lit up.
Behind this door, two 17th century samurai soldiers guard the huge living area where 14 black, fringed Moooi lamps hang at varying heights.
At first glance, we also notice the television cabinet; the only one of its kind in the world. This piece was specially commissioned for the residence, as were most of the other decorative pieces of furniture.
The master bedroom is spectacular. Above a carpet of black pebbles, an enormous bed made from open slats of wenge wood has the pride of place. The Hermes orange headboard was meticulously created by the famous Alexandre Mareuil in Bordeaux.
Three superb cottages, each decorated with a specific theme of Asian culture, await their guests.
The icing on the cake is the enchanting view from the terrace and black, semi-circular, mirror-like pool that plunges into the Bay of Marigot in the direction of Turtle Island. A Jacuzzi interrupts the uniformity of the immense deck, where huge jars in shades of grey and black add to the grandeur of the surroundings.
This property has succeeded in the way it has harmoniously married two different worlds, the East with the West, tradition with modernity. The charm of wood, associated with meticulously appointed Asian touches affirms the spirit of Zen, experienced upon entering the villa.
Villa Jade is not only a very beautiful villa but a perfect universe, serene and exceptional.
Villa comes with daily house cleaning services and turndown (Sunday and holidays included).
