Akasha sits on a hillside in the exclusive Cap Estate looking over the Caribbean sea with views down to the world heritage site of the Pitons and the national park – Pigeon Island. From this unrivalled location you can watch the sail boats and mega yachts as they head into Rodney Bay marina and in the evening with a glass of wine watch the stunning sunsets.

Every room boasts spectacular views, with huge floor to ceiling windows and minimum distractions from the stunning vistas. From the lookout you can see both the Atlantic and the Caribbean.
Enjoy the music and light up the atmosphere: Each bedroom has a flat-panel TV allowing you to choose a movie 'on demand' from the extensive movie library or watch cable TV. Crestron panels located on each floor allow you to manage all the music, lighting, entertainment systems, security, air conditioning, fans and security gates. These can also be controlled via the remote controls found in each room. Alternatively you could just enjoy the peace and tranquility offered by this location. At night time choose a scene from the Lutron lighting system – there are blue LED lights to create a tranquil environment.
Featuring a state of the art Lutron lighting system, and whole home Crestron music and video distribution you can relax by the pool with your favorite sounds delivered right from your own iPod - we suggest you bring it with you, alternatively from the music server which has thousands of tracks of different genres or internet radio.

Dining is possible inside or outside on the terracing. You can serve those special dishes either inside on the large glass dining table which has seating for 12, outside on the Dining terrace or in the intimate outdoor Nook area.

Akasha – living your dream: Defined in Sanskrit text as 'Ether', the most subtle of the five elements, and in Homeric Greek as 'pure, fresh air' or 'clear sky', Akasha is a positive substance, filled with unseen energies and intelligence.
We are a close family and everything we do we together and the villa is a family project. Now retired enjoying everything and anything.
Surrinder purchased this villa in 2009
We had been going to St Lucia and staying a resort near-by for several years when we say this lot for sale and snapped it up so we could build our dream holiday home. Inspired by the view and island we decided to build the most luxurious villa on the island. Our whole family input to the design so you can be assured there is everything you and your family will need for a great holiday.
Akasha has things no other villa on the island has - just check out the facilities and compare. It is a ideal villa for families and groups of friends looking to enjoy their holiday in a luxury villa. Our local team are there to make the difference.
We had a perfect, relaxing stay in your fantastic house. Everything was very clean, so a credit to Julietta and Gloria's sister. Fred did a great job, nothing was too much trouble for him and he made sure everything was safe inside the house for our 2 young mischievous children. The transfer was a great experience and one i will always remember. it is a nice touch to arrange that for the guest and goes a long way.
What can I say to summarize our visit to Akasha other than “beyond incredible.” This was our second time to St. Lucia, but the first time bringing our children. Many of the hotels are adult only, so we opted to go the route of looking for a private villa that would accommodate our family. Akasha certainly accomplished that.
We had opted to try something different and take a helicopter transfer from the southern international airport to the northern airport only a few minutes from the house. When dealing with the booking for Akasha, the owner was very helpful in liasoning the transfer for us, and had ground transportation waiting for us on the other side.
The villa itself is beyond compare. Facing West on the northern tip of the island, you are able to watch unobstructed views of the sunset each night, which never got old. Even our kids stayed quiet as they watched in “aww”. The amenities in the home were fantastic, and everything you can think of needing is available. We made a big dinner one night to take advantage of the great kitchen, and had everything we needed from martini glasses to serving plates.
The kids were kept entertained between the media room and the pool, and the home is large enough to accommodate everyone for a vacation without feeling like you’re on top of one another by any stretch. The staff were always very friendly and helpful, and were great with the kids.
Far enough away to feel private and secluded, yet close enough to visit restaurants or shopping, the home is located in an ideal location. This villa made for a vacation that we aren’t soon to forget, and for that I highly recommend the property.
With its absolutely luxurious accommodation and its breathtaking view. it's hard not to love the Akasha villa. It provides you with a private and intimate location without completely isolating you from the happenings of St Lucia. waking up to the exquisite view has got to be one of my
Akasha Villa was amazing. Me and my Husband got married in St Lucia and we had seen this villa online and had to book it for our honeymoon. We have been planning this for over a year and could not wait to stay there. When we arrived we were amazed by how beautiful the villa was and it was more then we expected. The views in every room just blew us away, they were spotless with the latest mod cons which was such a treat. There is everything you need in the villa, from a luxury home cinema to a games room and swimming pool to yourself.
Juliet was our chef, she cooked us some delicious food and if you do stay there you have to try her local juices, you will not be disappointed.
The owner was so helpful and professional with all our correspondence during the time of our booking and entering the villa, we could not thank him more.
We are so glad we stayed in Akasha, as this is a memorable honeymoon for us. We wish to visit again in the future.
I had the most unbelievable time at this property. It's beyond beautiful. The pool is to die for & the view is breathtaking. I couldn't give a higher recommendation to this rental property. It was perfect for my 5 friends for a short term vacation & we all can't wait to come back and stay again.
Amazing and beautiful villa with everything you could possibly imagine on a gorgeous island!
It is a must stay! It has an amazing kitchen to cook in, breath taking views, pool and hot tub that can't be beat, gorgeous modern and clean finishes, it's own elevator, a comfy and great theater to watch movies in, drivers to take you to the beach and dinner, a BBQ right next to the pool, great areas to lounge or have meals while gazing at an absolutely gorgeous view! Overall we had an amazing experience and can't wait for another excuse to make a trip to st. Lucia!!!!
I have been fortunate to travel all over the world and experience some of the most beautiful places from coast to coast; Akasha is at the top of the list.
The island itself is extraordinary and the mountain views combined with the perfect Caribbean beaches are the ideal combination.
Surrinder, the owner of the villa, was incredibly accommodating and helpful during the planning stages and his staff, led by Fred, brought everything from concept to fruition. All the recommendations they made were spot on. The people on the island were amazing and the simplicity of everything truly allowed us to relax.
The house was designed and built to perfection and brings the levels of luxury and comfort to peak performance.
Given the proximity to home; I will be back much sooner than I expected.
Three beaches within easy access offer different settings - snorkeling, secluded and active so take your pick.
Cap Estate has the only 18 hole golf course on the island and is only 3 minutes away from the villa.
One of the National parks is right behind the villa and offers short hikes to the old fort at the top for views to Martinique.
There are three of the islands top restaurants within a few minutes drive.
Lots of bars and restaurants in Rodney Bay are approximately 10 minutes away.
The Rodney Bay Marina with its shops and bars is about 5 minutes away.
The Gros Islet 'Friday Jump Up' is about a 7 minute drive away.
Duty free shopping mall is about a 10 minute drive away.
Guests are advised to use our local taxi driver who is reliable and reasonable - use the local cell phone we provide to call him when you are out and about. This works out much more economical than a rental car. He also acts as your guide.
