Akasha is 'The Villa' where the A list stay. Stunning views and sunsets are present from the moment you step thru the door. This is a state of the art villa.

All bedrooms are en-suite, gourmet kitchen, spacious living area, 4000sqft of terracing, infinity pool, games room, TV in every room in the villa, wireless internet to stay in touch, nine seat cinema. Relax on the entertainment level or by infinity pool, catch a film in the private cinema, listen to music anywhere, sip your champagne while sitting on the bar stool in the pool, play the piano, cook a BBQ and entertain your friends, gaze at the stars from the lookout, or just lie in bed and watch the ships sail by. Please note 2 of the bedrooms are in the apartment which is attached to the villa and entrance is possible both from within the villa and separately. The apartment also has its own kitchen and lounge.

Our onsite manager can organize and book your trips, recommend where to snorkel, dive, make restaurant or golf bookings and more. Julietta is a locally renowned cook who can prepare those local dishes. The ultra modern design is set in lush gardens from which Richard, our gardener, produces his organic vegetables for your table.

Akasha sits on a hillside in the exclusive Cap Estate looking over the Caribbean sea with views down to the world heritage site of the Pitons and the national park – Pigeon Island. From this unrivalled location you can watch the sail boats and mega yachts as they head into Rodney Bay marina and in the evening with a glass of wine watch the stunning sunsets.

A contemporary villa designed for Caribbean living, Akasha combines the best of modern living with the relaxed and content lifestyle of the Caribbean. Every room boasts spectacular views, with huge floor to ceiling windows and minimum distractions from the stunning vistas. From the lookout you can see both the Atlantic and the Caribbean.

Enjoy the music and light up the atmosphere: Each bedroom has a flat-panel TV allowing you to choose a movie 'on demand' from the extensive movie library or watch cable TV. Crestron panels located on each floor allow you to manage all the music, lighting, entertainment systems, security, air conditioning, fans and security gates. These can also be controlled via the remote controls found in each room. Alternatively you could just enjoy the peace and tranquility offered by this location. At night time choose a scene from the Lutron lighting system – there are blue LED lights to create a tranquil environment.

Featuring a state of the art Lutron lighting system, and whole home Crestron music and video distribution you can relax by the pool with your favorite sounds delivered right from your own iPod - we suggest you bring it with you, alternatively from the music server which has thousands of tracks of different genres or internet radio. Listen to the same music in any of the rooms inside the house, the terraces by the pool or on the Lookout level while enjoying the spectacular view.

Spread your wings in the Great room: The Great Room includes the Lounge, Dining space and the Kitchen. The Lounge is equipped with 50” plasma and surround sound speakers and Meridan front speaker and additional sub-woofer. Natuzzi leather seating helps to add to the experience. If you fold the 10ft high glass doors then you can fully appreciate the views or just walk onto the main terrace where further seating allows you to relax in the gentle breeze which blows across the location.

In the Kitchen you will find a blue Italian – Scavolini kitchen which matches the colour of the Caribbean sea and generates a cool ambiance. This gourmet kitchen is equipped with two ovens, microwave, fridge and freezer, dishwasher. In the island unit there is an ice maker, wine cooler, an additional sink and seating for six. The Laundry room houses a further fridge and freezer for storing those extra items when you entertain your guests. Julietta, our house manager, will undertake any light washing required.

Dining is possible inside or outside on the terracing. You can serve those special dishes either inside on the large glass dining table which has seating for 12, outside on the Dining terrace or in the intimate outdoor Nook area. If cooking outside is your thing then why not try the oversize Viking BBQ located by the swim up pool while your friends enjoy their champagne in the pool.

A 2 bedroom guest apartment is attached to the villa. Access is possible via either from inside the villa and or externally. The apartment has its own kitchen, living area and balcony. The queen size sofa can be set up to take extra guests. Both bedrooms have a queen bed and shower room. These bedrooms have views of the garden. Please note the apartment is on two levels.

Akasha – living your dream: Defined in Sanskrit text as 'Ether', the most subtle of the five elements, and in Homeric Greek as 'pure, fresh air' or 'clear sky', Akasha is a positive substance, filled with unseen energies and intelligence.

The dining terrace has a granite table and setting for eight. There is also an extra pool side dining area - the Nook, for more intimate dining. The large outdoor Viking barbecue will make those special meals in double quick time. The main patio off the lounge has seating for ten. Older children are welcome but parents should note the steep nature of the site and building. Akasha is the only villa on the island with an elevator and a nine seat cinema housing a 120 inch screen. Designed as a floating room to provide the ultimate in sound. Stream your favorite movie. Mood lighting is available in every room and outside to help create that special atmosphere. Music from our apple system or your Ipod can be played in any room, the lookout, or on the terraces.

                                                                      Chad E.Philadelphia, PA USA

                                                                      The property was extraordinary for a family trip. The island offered us all the activities we wanted, the combo beauty of the island and the property is truly one of a kind, and the service provided by the owner of the house and his staff was utter perfection. An indelible memory that my family will always have....all aspects of the trip, helicopters, boats, scuba, etc were done with no hassle and unmatched service in my experience. Thank you to all involved that made Akasha an amazing family holiday vacation.

                                                                      Hi Chad,

                                                                      Thank you for taking the time to write a wonderful review of your stay with us. The whole team always looks to making sure we and the people we recommend to our guests have the best there is. So pleased you were able to pack so much in to your week and that the kids (of all ages) were able to find enough to do.

                                                                      We hope you will be able to return sometime soon.

                                                                      Surrinder

                                                                      Outstanding family vacation!

                                                                      Sandy M.

                                                                      The Akasha was every bit as beautiful in person as it is in the videos. The house staff and cooks went above and beyond to make our visit enjoyable. The concierge could not have been more helpful, stopping by each morning, returning if needed and always available by phone. The pool and grounds were maintained daily, the gardener even gave me a personal tour discussing each plant/tree as I am decreed in horticulture. The kids made full use of the game room, home theater and, of course, the pool and spa.

                                                                      I can only give the Akasha the highest recommendations.

                                                                      Owner's Response:

                                                                      Hi Sandy, thank you for taking the time to write a review of your stay at Akasha. We always appreciate reviews especially wonderful ones like yours. It is especially rewarding to read you granddaughter's comment - "when are we going back to the White House". Clearly we made a big impression on the children. Once again thank you for giving us the opportunity to host your family vacation in the St Lucia and we hope to see you again soon.

                                                                      Carribean Jewel

                                                                      Paradise! From the moment we arrived we were treated like kings and queens! The house is gorgeous and has an incredible view from every area. Perfect for entertaining friends and family. The staff took care of everything our entire stay. Cooking, cleaning and even made fresh juice each morning for us to enjoy. The drivers were always on point no matter what time or where we needed to go. Great people! The walk down to the beach is charming and very nice once your there. We had a wonderful vacation there and look forward to experiencing again!

                                                                      Owner's Response:

                                                                      Hi Jamie, Thank you for taking the time to post your super review for Akasha. The team are so glad that you and your party enjoyed the villa and all that we offer. Also thank you and all the guests for treating our villa with the same respect you treat your own home. We look forward to your next visit.

                                                                      Surrinder

                                                                      Pictures do not do justice

                                                                      Todd W.

                                                                      The website cannot fully capture just how amazing this property is. The views are unparalleled. From the top floor, you can see the Caribbean and the Atlantic with a swivel of your head. Sunsets are unbelievable. Every detail is impeccable and overall quality is first-class. Don't miss out on asking Julietta to prepare a true St. Lucian breakfast. The salt fish cakes are to die for!

                                                                      Owner's Response:

                                                                      Todd, Thank you for taking the time to write such a glowing review - and yes I agree the villa is better in real life :) I will pass on your comments to Juliette - I know how much she likes to cook for guests. Maybe we will see you again in the near future.

                                                                      Best. Trip. Of. My. Life.

                                                                      Noah D.Dallas

                                                                      I am speechless. This was by far the best week of my life. Our family was there to celebrate my Mother's 70th birthday. We arrived via helicopter and were greeted by Barbara with a huge smile and the greatest life ever. On the drive up the hill to the property the car was full of gasps and screams of excitement. It sits on a hill overlooking Pigeon Island, the deep blue caribbean ocean and the sunset. We arrived with food and drink already in the kitchen and were blown away by the space and decor on the initial tour. The Villa is spectacular. Julietta and her sister were fantastic, preparing breakfast and lunch for us as well as keeping the place spotless. Fred, the house manager, was as responsive and helpful as possible, not mention just a great guy. Richard does an amazing job with the landscaping and pool maintenance. We opted for a personal chef for 6 of our 7 meals, and Chef Didier and his assistant Junior received applause at every meal. Being a foodie from Chicago, this is high praise, and I strongly recommend his services! Finally Surrinder Chali orchestrated the entire trip with the ease of someone who still has the art of good personal customer service. He is the anchor to the whole villa, and I only wish there were more properties around the world he would manage!

                                                                      The home is gorgeous, the rooms clean, the movie room and game room were well used, and the pool, spa and the view - well there are just not words in the English language to describe it - just a gut, raw emotion of happiness. We did a day of deep sea fishing as well as a day of snorkeling and trip down the coast to the Pitons with Captain Tom, both were fantastic. Thank you, for sharing the villa with us, it truly was a magical week. Between myself and my family members we have travelled all over the world, and stay routinely in 5 star properties or hotels. This was exceptional. I wish I every vacation could be like this one. Bravo.

                                                                      Owner's Response:

                                                                      Hi Noah and family,

                                                                      Thank you for taking the time to write this review - we all appreciate the compliments. As a team we strive to offer the best in St Lucia and to hear that you not only enjoyed the villa but also the chef and trips is so reassuring that we are on the right track. The praise made all the more important as you are clearly a seasoned traveller and know quality.

                                                                      Our local team felt that you were becoming part of their family's so I know they really enjoyed making friends with your family.

                                                                      We all hope that your next family reunion is held again at Akasha, I know the team would make it extra special.

                                                                      Surrinder

                                                                      Absolutely stunning! I did not want to leave.

                                                                      Michelle W.

                                                                      I did not want to leave.

                                                                      This place is so unreal. My boyfriend booked this amazing villa as a surprise vacation. I felt like we were in the A list world. As we drove into the villa the flowers in the garden were in full bloom and made this place look like a piece of paradise. As the Manager opened the door my jaw hit the floor. We then walked to the balcony and to say the view was something like a movie set would be an understatement. It was stunning.

                                                                      The master suite did not disappoint either. Every time we walked around the Great Room I felt like a celebrity at her private island retreat.

                                                                      We ate some of the local restaurants as recommended by Fred, the Manager, and they were pretty good. Juliette prepared some interesting local dishes and juices (and cocktails) for us, such a lovely lady. For our final night we had a chef prepare and cook a romantic dinner by the pool, super dishes better than a 5 star restaurant. This is clearly my special place forever.

                                                                      When it was time to leave I have to admit I did not want to, we will definitely be back.

                                                                      Owner's Response:

                                                                      We do hope to see you both again, maybe with some friends.

                                                                      Three beaches within easy access offer different settings - snorkeling, secluded and active so take your pick. Cap Estate has the only 18 hole golf course on the island and is only 3 minutes away from the villa. One of the National parks is right behind the villa and offers short hikes to the old fort at the top for views to Martinique. There are three of the islands top restaurants within a few minutes drive. Lots of bars and restaurants in Rodney Bay are approximately 10 minutes away. The Rodney Bay Marina with its shops and bars is about 5 minutes away. The Gros Islet 'Friday Jump Up' is about a 7 minute drive away. Duty free shopping mall is about a 10 minute drive away. Guests are advised to use our local taxi driver who is reliable and reasonable - use the local cell phone we provide to call him when you are out and about. This works out much more economical than a rental car. He also acts as your guide.
