Langarra Villa in Botany Bay is one of the most beautiful places I’ve ever visited. There were 6 of us on this vacation, all of us well-traveled women, and we all agreed whole-heartedly. Langarra was perfect in every way, starting with the view. It is spectacular, and even better than in the pictures. There were even views from the showers!
This vacation was to mark a special celebration and we could not have picked a better place. We ended up staying in Botany Bay the entire time… Even though we had loose plans to have experiences around St. Thomas, once we were at Langarra it quickly felt like there was no reason whatsoever to leave during our entire stay. So we didn’t! We only left the house to go to the beach.
The nearby beaches that we had access to were special and private… We didn’t see another person the entire time. We did need to drive to the beach because of the hilly terrain, but this just added to the fun. In the evenings we enjoyed sunsets on the back patio eating chef-prepared meals. It was simply exquisite.
Our concierge Lauren was incredible. Her help, information, and coordination took our trip to another level of ease and perfection. She was amazing, and we were so well taken care of even before we got there. She was responsive, incredibly helpful, and didn’t leave one detail untended to. She really made our trip.
The house itself was beyond: spacious, comfortable, peaceful, beautiful, and incredibly well-appointed. Everything we needed was within arms reach. The kitchen was state of the art and had everything we could have needed - all the utensils, gadgets and equipment necessary, down to the blender, toaster, salad spinner, coffee machine.
The architecture of the house was perfect - it was open and flowed in such a way that everyone felt that they could hang together, but also so well-designed that there was always a place to go, to have a little solo quiet time. The bedrooms were beautiful, each had its own terrace sitting area, its own bathroom, its own walk-in closet. And the beds were amazingly comfortable.
The infinity pool was gorgeous, crisp and beautiful… and again… THAT VIEW!! You never really get away from the incredible view, and that is the genius to how the house was created, that it is showcased from practically every spot in the house. Breathtaking!
It really couldn’t have been a better stay. Every drop was perfect. We will definitely be back!
