Nestled into the mountainside at the gateway of Gustavia, St. Barths, an extraordinary villa re-imagines the essence of luxury on an island renowned for its opulent vacation experiences. Boasting a magnificent 12,000 square feet of awe-inspiring interiors, and an equal expanse of exclusive exterior terraces and gardens, Villa Embrace presents a sanctuary for the discerning visitor, blending seamlessly with the picturesque backdrop of this iconic island.
Alexandra Burchfield from KK Travels Worldwide was recently at the property, and lauds Villa Embrace, stating, “If you’re looking for location, privacy, ultra-luxe accommodation, and world-class art and design, look no further than Villa Embrace. Every amenity has been considered, and guests are looked after by the very best staff on the island.”
The villa’s elegant design reflects the ultimate in modern sophistication, seamlessly fusing opulent luxury with natural beauty. Its features and amenities include two infinity-edge pools, a private gym, four-story glass elevator, games and entertainment rooms, fully equipped office and an impressive private underground driveway and garage. Daniela Ratner from KAX Lifestyle emphasizes the remarkable offerings, saying, “From its highly curated art collection to the unique luxuries of a glass elevator, a state-of-the-art gym, and an expansive outdoor shower with a private lagoon in the blue room, Villa Embrace is a triumph of design. It’s an immersive luxury experience complete with its own exceptional, dedicated service team.”
Just a five-minute walk from Gustavia and many of the island’s most sought-after shops and restaurants, Villa Embrace offers panoramic vistas of the Caribbean Sea and Gustavia Harbor. The residence features five suites, each with either an outdoor shower or Japanese soaking tub, and an array of meticulously designed spaces, both indoor and outdoor, where guests can unwind in grandeur. Katie Cherico from In the Know Experiences aptly summarizes the villa’s appeal, “With stunning views, artful interiors, and an ever-present team, Villa Embrace provides an exclusive, luxurious base for exploring the island. It brings the private villa experience to a new level.”
The villa’s design ethos is an homage to nature, inviting it indoors through clean lines and natural materials. The rooms throughout are adorned with top-tier furnishings such as Minotti and B&B Italia furniture, hand-stitched French leather cabinets from T.T.Trunks, and handmade custom rugs. The villa also boasts an exquisite collection of contemporary art, including a series of Roy Lichtenstein nudes and pieces by Andy Warhol, which were chosen from the owners’ private collection.
Guests of Villa Embrace are served by an in-house butler available around the clock and a private chef who caters to every culinary desire. Even beyond its exclusive amenities, Villa Embrace elevates the standard for luxury accommodations with its attention to detail and commitment to personalized experiences. The villa offers guests a range of delights, from daily breakfast on the outdoor terrace to memorable dinners with family and friends at the custom nautical-inspired dining table from Italy’s Barbaraini & Gunnell. Every wish for the day can be arranged by the remarkable staff.
With magnificent décor and surroundings, and a dedicated 24/7 staff to make your St. Barths dreams come true, Villa Embrace isn’t just one of the best vacation properties, it is an immersion into a rarefied world of unparalleled luxury.
