Occasionally, very occasionally, you take a holiday in a place that is so special you find yourself settling back into your chair and thinking…This is as good as it gets.

Perched atop the mountain at the end of a private road, Tingalayo is not so much a villa as a tiny, private hamlet of five small buildings interwoven and connected with welcoming outdoor spaces and beautiful gardens. Inspired by Balinese style, the cross-breezes flow throughout the nine thousand square feet of understated elegance. With four distinct dining areas, Tingalayo allows you to take breakfast, lunch, dinner, and even high tea in a different place. The infinity pool at the center of the property with its unbroken panorama always beckons.

The truly breathtaking 270 degree views frame unforgettable impressions of the nearby beaches of Smugglers Cove, Long Bay and Apple Bay, the British Virgin Islands of Little Thatch, Big Thatch and Jost van Dyke, the West End of Tortola with Soper’s Hole Marina, St, John, St. Thomas and all the way to Puerto Rico on a clear day.
