Joatinga Villa, Rio de Janeiro, Brazil

4 Bedrooms,  5 Baths       

Magnificent 4 bedroom villa with stunning, unique views over the ocean, mountains and city of Rio de Janeiro.

This villa is Rio’s newest addition to the luxury market, and is beautifully designed so that each of the 4 suites have amazing views out over the Atlantic ocean. This villa was recently renovated to the highest international standards by renowned architects and design team. It is within a gated community, so has the utmost in security and safety. The location of this villa is along a winding road which hugs Rio’s ocean side mountains, and has access to a peaceful and secluded private beach. The theme throughout the entire villa is white – from the furniture, to the marble bathrooms to the imported flooring. Each of the 4 luxury suites face the ocean, and two of them have private balconies. The sun rises over the Atlantic and mountains in the distance, so that each morning, whether you are in bed, taking breakfast on your private terrace or enjoying a morning swim in the large infinity pool, you will enjoy the sunrise.

All 4 suites have staircases that lead down to the jewel of this villa – the shared terrace and infinity pool. There is a wooden terrace which surrounds the pool – which is equipped with lounge chairs and has ample space to spread out. This is the perfect spot to have some drinks in the sun or for cooling off from Rio’s heat and going for a swim, or to have dinner or a cocktail party under the night Atlantic sky. The design of the infinity pool makes you feel that you could swim right into the Atlantic from your very own pool, and even with other houses close by in the neighborhood, once you’re in the villa or enjoying the pool, you feel total serenity and privacy.

This luxury villa is set in a great location – the neighborhood of Joatinga is very exclusive in Rio, and very safe, yet you’re only a few minutes away by taxi to the restaurants and beaches of Sao Conrado, or 15 minutes away to Leblon and Ipanema.

Villa Arawan – Surin, Phuket – Thailand

5 Bedrooms, 5 Baths 4 Ensuite, Infinity Pool, Outdoor Jacuzzi
This magnificent house is built in northern Thai style and is located in a quiet position, at the end of a no-through road, within a private estate some 60m (200 ft.) above sea level.

All 5 bedrooms (3 kings and 2 Twins/Doubles) face the sea. These include two matching Master bedrooms, opening onto a huge private terrace. The Pool terrace with its twin ‘salas’ (covered outside dining and sitting areas), has a magnificent view across its infinity pool and the lovely Surin and Bang Tao beaches to the Andaman Sea.

The House is beautifully presented, with polished teak floors and attractive Thai furnishings and art work, and is very spacious – over 500m2 (5,380 sq. ft.) of air-conditioned space; it accommodates 10 adults in great comfort. It may be possible to accommodate a small number of additional children, subject to discussion. There is a large living room, with a dining area seating at least 10. At the same time, its design and lay-out mean that a smaller party of 4-6 people would be a perfect fit: indeed, we have made the whole villa available to one honeymoon couple.

This stunning House is located at Surin on the west coast of Phuket, home to the best beaches on the island and close to luxurious hotel properties such as the Amanpuri and the Chedi. It is also close to the best restaurants on the island, and only a short distance from the best golf courses and the marina where yachts of every description can be chartered.
