Designed by John Otway, one of the Caribbean’s premier architects, as seen in The New York Times and voted among the top twenty villas in the Caribbean by Conde Nast Traveler, Ohana Villa stands out as one of the most striking villas in Tobago and the Caribbean. This luxurious, Balinesian inspired 4 bedroom, 7,000 square foot villa, which is Hawaiian for family rest-house, is nestled on an acre lot on a clifftop in Bacolet Tobago with high ceilings and panoramic views of the Atlantic Ocean. Prepare to be amazed by the views from three of the four luxurious ensuite bedrooms. Two of which each feature an individual private terrace that overlooks a large deck of two infinity pools, a jacuzzi, koi pond and the sea.
Ohana villa provides a harmony of organic and intuitive elements that combine to form a sanctuary of comfort, privacy and serenity. The house is orientated with the prevailing trade winds with the purpose of making living on the island as cool and peaceful as possible. The garden is littered with tropical and exotic flowers and goes down to a small sandy cove, protected by a reef just out in the bay. The open living area and four bedrooms surround the large deck. Each bedroom is lavishly furnished with a four poster bed, air conditioning and overhead fans. The master and its huge en-suite bathroom feature shuttered windows which open out allowing you to shower, or lounge while watching the sun sparkles on the turquoise water below.
The villa’s open and breezy kitchen is completed with Demerara windows throughout which open to give a view of the beach below. The villa’s kitchen also comes fully equipped with ample appliances, some of which include a dishwasher, a large stainless steel fridge and another for drinks. To one side is an open barbeque area, on the other a pantry and a utility room with a large washer and dryer.
Just off the kitchen is the luxurious, vast, open living room with canvas shutters and views of the deck and bay. The shutters allow you to decide if you’d prefer to permit the ocean breeze to work their relaxing charms, or if you’d like to relax and gather with your family and friends in the shade. Close by are four teak armchairs for you to recline with your refreshment.
The house is stocked with board games, DVDs and a selection of CDs for times when the view alone is not enough. Humming birds, blue birds and cocricos fly around the gardens, and you can watch the ornamental koi fish from your hammock whilst sipping a home made rum cocktail. Sample excellent local or European cooking, or try a fusion of both from Ohana’s renowned cook, one of the best on the island. Guests find it difficult to tear themselves away from the house. In fact, many guests never leave the house and wonder why they hired a car.
However Tobago is full of enticing activities and day trips, from beautiful nature reserves, to beaches, surfing waterfalls as well as excellent diving and deep sea fishing. Tobago also features two award-winning 18-hole championship golf courses. The course at Mt.Irvine is closest to the villa. The villa is five minutes from Tobago’s largest city, Scarborough and its main docking facility.
Ohana’s staff will be happy to arrange for any island activities using the preferred tour operators. 1 house manager and 2 housekeepers look after the running of the house and will do as much or as little shopping and cooking as you require. Most guests prefer to do their own grocery shopping, however for those of you that don’t, the staff will be happy to do it for an additional fee. Ohana’s housekeepers will cook, serve, and wash up each morning for breakfast as this is included in the daily rate – however all ingredients for breakfast are to be provided by guests. Other meals can be requested and are charged at ~40 US dollars per meal; again all ingredients to be provided by guests. Excellent and highly recommended aromatherapy massages by Rena can be arranged for $20 USD. Ohana is indeed a very special place, a place that refreshes the mind, as well as the body.
