About Ritama Davidson
We started Esencia in 1998. The studios were built in December 2015. Kabir and Ritama - owners of Villa Esencia are avid kiteboarders and self-development trainers and authors.
Ritama Davidson purchased this Studio in 1998
Why Ritama Davidson chose Long Bay
We were looking for a quiet, natural environment, close to nature and the sea, away from the buzz of city, road and people. This location fit that description perfectly. There was only one house nearby, no sounds except the wind, the trees and the sea.
What makes this Studio unique
Featured in Conde Nast “Brides” on best places for honeymoons in the Caribbean! We are quiet, natural, close to nature and directly on the beach. This is the 'natural' side of Provo, yet just 5 minutes away is Grace Bay with all the shops and entertainment. We cater to both 'pure' vacationers who just want peace and quiet, and we also cater to people who want watersports activities. We are on what is considered the best kiteboarding beach in the world, especially for beginners, and we also have stand-up-paddle boards and ocean kayaking.

Great location, set up and hosts!
We really enjoyed our stay. Great location right on the beach! Our room had everything we needed - great set up for cooking your own meals.
Everything was perfect
Beautiful location. Comfortable, clean and stylish accommodations, extremely well equipped. Private and relaxed. Great vibe, great hosts. Can't wait to return.
I loved everything about staying here! The place was beautiful and clean and peaceful. Close to the beach and close to many restaurants. I would definitely recommend and will be staying here in the future!
Location was perfect. Unit was quiet/secluded yet easy access to the beach.
Thoroughly enjoyed our stay. Mostly vacationed to kiteboard. This location couldn't have been better. Unfortunately, the wind wasn't great. We enjoyed other aspects of the island and this property is so well located, we could get to these locations quickly. Owners were awesome and accommodating. They were updating their wifi and let us use their personal phone to connect during the process. I would definitely return to this location. If you are reviewing this and you are a kiteboarder bringing your own gear...I would bring big kites. I brought 4 kites: 8m, 9m and two 12's. A storm brought good winds for one day which allowed us to use all kites. Otherwise 15m and up was required for all other wind patterns (March). Conveniently located, this property is just down wind from kite Provo. Again owners are great people and would highly recommend this location.
Beach Vacation from Heaven
We have been all over the Caribbean islands. My wife likes beaches that are secluded and walkable, I like a ton of activity and then shade. This isn't an easy combination to find. I absolutely love Villa Esencia. My wife and I had such an amazing time and the combination of activities and serenity was perfect for us, plus the cabanas on the beach are perfect for the fair of skin like me (by the way, it actually looks exactly like the picture, that is the view from the cabana). This is a very active place as well with the shallow water (goes out 2.5 miles) with white sand it is ideal for kite surfing. A pleasant surprise was how this particular property pays attention to minute detail. It is super clean, very functional, practical and friendly. We felt at home and we felt welcomed. I really couldn't recommend this place more for a couple that wants to get away. We didn't bring the kids but it looks like it would work for them too. We are going back as soon as we can.
There is almost always a soft breeze that will cool you down and keep you comfortable during the summer. The wind direction is conducive to great kiteboarding but beachcombing, walking, paddle-boarding and sunbathing are amongst preferred activities as well. Energizing sunrises and beautiful colorful sunset skies are a daily spectacle.
