OUTDOOR FEATURES: The centerpiece and one of the defining features of Golden Pavilion Villa is the heated infinity pool. Majestically centered on the ocean facing deck, with views east, north and west, the 20' x 40’ pool will be your daily focus. Overlooking the pool and the views beyond is the 16’ carved Balinese dining table with seating for 10. Additional cocktail seating for 8 is available poolside for breakfast, afternoon tea or after dinner drinks. Additional children’s seating is available indoors. The dining deck is protected by substantial roof overhang and a roll down canvas shields the table from the occasional strong winds or inclement weather.
The entry courtyard is one of the villas unique elements. Covered with Jerusalem Gold stone and lined with imported Balinese footlights and statues, the courtyard is monitored by a hand carved, 1000 lb stone Buddha who ensures perfect Karma for all that enter. The elevated entry pavilion with carved seating and comfortable cushions, is trimmed on three sides by the lily and frog pond. Gentle colored lights bathe imported statues and stone wall interiors at night. The courtyard is not just a pass through to the house, it is a destination and wonderful place to read and relax.

Why Matt Restell chose British Virgin Islands
We chose Little Bay, Tortola because of it's stunning location. Perfect white sandy beach which is mostly deserted, steady trade wind breezes and the unparalled view. Being an oceanfront property, we have the most incredible unspoiled view.
What makes this villa unique
Enjoy the peace and serenity of the villa whilst being quietly looked after and catered to by your own private chef. The villa offers an incredible setting for what would be a truly unique stay, the house has just as much to offer as the views.
Guestbook comments from the manager
Over the years we have traveled and stayed in some lovely, exotic and beautiful places but we have all been left speechless by Golden Pavilion. It has been magical! Thankyou.
