Nirvana is the sole peace of mind in Buddhist teachings. In Hinduism, it is a relationship with the divine and a bliss experience. Villa Nirvana is a serene temple by design in St. Barth, where bliss and happiness are quickly understood. Unusual architecture and modern art set the tone for an unparalleled aesthetic audacity in St. Barth and potentially in the Caribbean in the distinctly 21st-century rental house. The almost monochromatic cosmos produces an air of reflection before the splashes and touches of colour disrupt like sudden laughter. Chic and still cosy, Villa Nirvana is above the ground.
One of the largest and most spacious holiday homes on the island, Villa Nirvana is quite well suited to large groups of friends or families—each of the bedrooms is very private, with its own entrance—especially those who want to host small parties or celebrate an intimate high-rise celebration. The talented kitchen would invite a private chef, maybe one hand-chosen by our concierge’s team, to show off his skills.
Villa Nirvana also swaddles you in heavenly luxury and frees you from home treatment, as it has hotel-quality linens and other services and competent housekeeping. There’s a nice workout room in the back, too.
And when you visit your private hideaway, you’ll discover a comfortable living room with an Ingo Maurer LED coffee table and Le Corbusier seats. Larger mirrors intensify the sense of vacuum, sending the eyes back to the sea, apparent in the open air where the fourth wall is to be. The terrace runs down the side, topped by a 22-metre-long enclosed swimming pool, which is suitable for swimming laps, and bordered by a dining table with ten tables. The suites, all of them in separate cottages with portraits by Elisabeth Montagnier, are no less elegant and serene.
There’s more than enough in Villa Nirvana to please the senses, but if you want to abandon this-worldly sanctuary, Gustavia’s bustling worldliness is only a five-minute drive away.
