|Minimum Stay||7 nights|
Your stay at Datura is one that can be tailored to fit almost anyone's needs, from couples and families to groups and retreats. Your accommodations can be as inclusive as an all-inclusive or as casual as a luxury hotel or resort. The only difference is that your visit will always feel personal and intimate with none of the institutional trappings.
The villa, originally built in 1930 by the editor of The New Yorker magazine, has the amenities of a fine hotel and yet offers affordable luxury, privacy, and close proximity to all tourist activities, nightlife, and the airport. The villa has over 5,000 square feet of living space, consisting of five (5) large bedrooms with private baths, a high-ceiling, grand living room with mahogany floors, a library, bar, TV room, antiques, a screened-in dining room overlooking the aquamarine waters below, a pool house with washroom, tennis court, and a modern commercial kitchen with pantry, ice maker, two refrigerators, and blender.
