Le Paul Gaugin, now one of Ponant’s luxury cruises
The Caribbean’s newest private island
Showcasing futuristic technology, a hidden DJ performance deck, multi-level infinity pool and a cliffside cantilevered glass-bottom hot tub – Moskito Island’s newest estate takes luxury to new heights
Moskito Island, the Caribbean’s newest private island, has launched a brand-new nine-bedroom grand estate, The Village. Delivering a one-of-a-kind, luxury living experience, The Village joins three ultra-lavish estates that already call Moskito home – The Branson Estate (owned by Sir Richard Branson), The Oasis Estate and The Point Estate. Crafted into the cliffside, The Village estate seamlessly blends cutting edge architecture with high tech amenities and delightful surprises waiting to be discovered to create an extravagant Caribbean getaway. Following its highly anticipated debut in late-2021, Moskito Island now offers discerning travellers four distinctive and highly-personalised private retreats as part of the Virgin Limited Edition portfolio.
Luxury accommodation in the Caribbean with a two story infinity pool
Each estate on Moskito Island has its own unique identity and The Village is no exception to this. Perched on the furthest western tip of the island with astounding sea views across to Virgin Gorda, the 18,100 sq. ft. estate, set in 3.5 acres, presents a strikingly modern design comprised of multiple cottage-like structures that nestle into the topography, showcasing thatched roofs that blend naturally into the landscape. Featuring nine bedrooms, comfortably accommodating up to 18 guests and available for exclusive buyout only, it is the estate’s futuristic technology and quirky amenities that sets it apart. From a hidden DJ booth that rises from the outdoor deck overlooking a two-story infinity pool and the cantilevered glass-bottom hot tub extended over the cliff edge that will be ready in 2023; to a slide that wraps around the edge of the estate, and an exceptionally advanced lighting and sound system that simply takes these amenities to the next level.
A beautifully designed home-away-from-home, each of the nine guest rooms at The Village act as their own secluded retreat with ensuite bathrooms, private living room space and spacious terraces or patios. The crown jewel is the two-story Master Suite designed in a circular loop and completed by a 360-degree wrap-around terrace that not only creates a seamless indoor-outdoor living experience but boasts the most spectacular views.
The best bar on Moskito Island
The Village’s main house is a true entertaining hub and intended as a beacon of sorts, sitting proudly at the top of the hill. A communal bar – matched with a uniquely designed living area – draws up to a spiral staircase that leads to the estate’s rooftop. Playing into the estate’s high-tech offerings, the staircase is also wrapped with audio-synced, LED lighting, where the lights move to the beat of the music projected from the stadium-quality sound system.
Taking center stage of The Village is the vast undulating multi-level infinity-edge pool that is anchored at either end by the Main Pavilion and Dining Pavilion and lined with palm trees that create a tropical oasis inspired by the flavours of a Balinese garden. Unique features are perfectly designed into the pool spaces, with a submerged dry lounge, swim-up bar and second pool that leads to the Master-Suite – all enhanced by breath-taking views and the surrounding calm of Caribbean waters.
Luxury pools in the Caribbean
The submerged ‘bar’ sits at the edge of the pool for a ‘sit and sip’ in-water moment and a glass encased dry-lounge with sunken fire pit is built into the center of the pool, while a unique eight-seater under-the-water dining table lies at the infinity-edge. A slide spirals down from the submerged bar to connect the top infinity space with a secondary lower-level pool, and through an undercover archway sits a hidden tranquil escape, providing a lower entrance to the Main Pavilion.
Additional amenities of The Village include a fully-equipped, state-of-the-art gym, sound-proof home cinema, pizza oven and an organic kitchen garden from which freshly harvested produce is used daily by dedicated chefs curating tailor-made dining experiences for guests and at the same time helps reducing produce waste for the estate.
Outside of their very-own, hyper-personalised, private estate, guests of Moskito Island have access to world-class communal recreational areas including two arena-inspired tennis courts, watersports center, gaming, entertaining and movie areas in the communal Beach House, and a fully serviced private beach. Gastronomy on the island knows no limits, with an array of dining locations and tailored experiences to choose from; whether picnics on Manchioneel Beach, candlelit dinners under the Caribbean stars or pizza-making classes at The Beach House or in the comfort of your own estate. Bespoke and personalised spa treatments are offered in the comfort of each estate or across the island in private, secluded locations too.
Rates for The Village start from $19,000 per night during low-season, for up to 18 guests. Rates include a dedicated Estate Manager and team of staff, as well as a team of private chefs across the island. Moskito Island offers a high-end all-inclusive model where all meals, drinks, non-motorised watersports and curation of a fully personalised itinerary are all part of the rate. Minimum night stays apply throughout the year.
