Armonia - A relaxing, private vacation at Reef View Pavilion Villas in Grenada.
Armonia is a rustic adobe style contemporary 3 bedroom/3 bathroom luxury condo located at the Grenada Villa Resort, Reef View Pavilions, in Lance aux Epines, St. George's. It sleeps from 2 to 6 guests comfortably. There is access to three refreshing pools, one of them being a small private plunge pool next to the main bedroom with a waterfall down to the main lagoon pool. A small neighborhood beach is a short walk away. The home is a Caribbean-eclectic interpretation of traditional Spanish Hacienda architecture. The use of simple rustic materials throughout evokes an unpretentious homely feel. Just as importantly, it can withstand both the intense tropical climate and the rigors of vacation life.
Outdoors and Setting
Armonia is situated on the first floor of the building. Positioned directly above the glistening lagoon style pool with magnificent Fox Tail and African Oil palm trees rising up to the verandah, the condo’s many windows keep guests connected and alive with the vibrant yet tranquil surrounds. The sights, sounds, and feelings from flowing water surround the apartment – with the rooftop pool, the swimming pool below, and the nearby neighborhood beach. Generous outdoor living areas from which to stage your daily vacation activities are provided. Shaded by a variety of palms and two wallaba wood shingled umbrellas, the Armonia courtyard is the spot to be. The entry courtyard is a wonderful space to gather for a barbeque, drinks, and conversation. It’s the outdoor version of the condo’s indoor living/dining/kitchen area. Anything you can do on the inside, you can do on the outside. There is no time or space to waste on your vacation. The daytime is hot and sunny. Evenings and mornings are generally cool and shady as the sun or moon drifts lazily across the mountainous surrounds. So, the courtyard spaces are planned to create a place to be outdoors comfortably throughout the day and participate in the best of the Caribbean environ. The courtyard was planned around several existing palm trees with the functional spaces occupying naturally formed areas amongst the trees. A large locally-made barbeque grill crafted from a salvaged propane gas tank and built into the outdoor kitchen countertop is the focal point for the space. ///……..
The lower courtyard grounds offers our free-form lagoon style pool. It’s definitely not your usual backyard pool scene. Its organic shapes, colours, and materials will take you to another frame of mind…Caribbean-style living. Fully grown palm trees rise from rounded islands within and on the smooth, undulating edges of the pool. The multiple shallow areas are great for even the smallest kids to wade and play or for adults to sip a drink, float or walk around in the water. The deeper part is great for swimming and splashing. On the shore of the lagoon pool, concrete surface interspersed with various hues of tiny river stones create an outdoor carpet underneath your bare feet to keep you in touch and anchored to our lovely natural setting.
On the rooftop, our raised perch allows you to take in the spectacular views of shimmering bays and Grenada’s lush, tropical landscape. A beautiful, Spanish-style ramada covered with cool clay roof tiles is open sided yet provides shade and protection from the elements. Underneath the shade structure is a huge outdoor dining table in a Fleur de Lis shape, full size mahogany day bed, built in adobe style seating areas, and a barbeque area with sink and countertop space make this area a perfect spot to spend a vacation day, every day! In front of the ramada is a 50 foot long pool with built in seating – great for keeping cool under the sunny Caribbean sky with your favorite drink in hand. This rooftop pool is about 3 feet deep so the entire family can enjoy safely. An uncovered lounge area with sun chairs and built in daybeds is the spot to work on your tan. Two outdoor showers and toilet complete the rooftop lounge. From this setting, the turquoise waters of the bay with its coral reef outcroppings, sleepy yachts, and faint beach sounds frame an array of sensory stimulants such as cool orange-brown clay roof and floor tiles, colorful Talavera tile accents, vibrant paints, tinted glass inserts along the view-side rails, variegated palm-like pandanus, purple and red bougainvillea, and swaying palm fronds on the fringes. These delights will keep you in the mood for fun, relaxation and vacation-style living.
