Private Luxury

All of the bedroom pavilions are uniquely decorated and furnished, and all have their own private bath, TV, DVD, ceiling fans, mini-fridges, safes and phones.

The Bedroom Pavilions

Sol y Sombra has four bedroom pavilions in total, with its three beachfront pavilions surrounding the 30-foot vanishing edge swimming pool. All offer spectacular views of the Caribbean and the estate's landscaped gardens. The villa has five separate bedroom suites, each with a private outdoor terrace, bath, air conditioning, flat-screen television, DVD, mini-refrigerator and telephone.

All suites are furnished with custom-crafted solid teak furniture, cushions and luxury cottons. Hand-assembled native stone, honey-colored French limestone and lavender marble give each suite an elegant, timeless aura. French doors allow each pavilion to open completely to the sea breezes.

The master bedroom suite is the closest to the beach, with a private path to Valley Trunk Bay and to Little Trunk Bay. This suite has two private terraces, a stunning shower with ocean vistas, spacious bath with lavender marble vanity, desk alcove, and king British colonial poster bed.

Sugar Mill Pavilion

The Sugar Mill houses two suites, with separate entrances. The lower suite adjoins the 30-foot long vanishing-edge pool, with an oversized bath and walk-in closet and dressing area. Two single beds furnish this suite designed particularly with children or young adults in mind. The single beds can be converted to a king bed upon request. This pavilion is closest to the marble stairs that lead down to the beach.The upper Sugar Mill suite is a dramatic adult retreat, with one of the most spectacular views in the Caribbean. The outdoor terraces rest on a two-story boulder, offering a panorama of neighboring islands and cays.

The Pool
