Airport greeting, baggage transfers, rental car facilitation and escort to the estate by the house manager will ease you arrival. Just 15 minutes from the airport, a long, winding dirt road leads you to a gated and secure entry. The driveway serpentines through the exotic landscaped gardens, down the hillside to the arrival courtyard. Complimentary arrival drinks and snacks will be served followed by an introductory tour.

Golden Pavilion Villa is a unique property, unparalleled in Tortola. The villa presents Zen tranquility and privacy juxtaposed with modernity and meticulous details. Walking gardens, paths leading to sunken stone retreats and sitting areas nestled under mature plantings at cliff’s edge. Tropical birds ride warm breezes up the cliff to sip from the infinity pool. Turtles, rays and the occasional whale can be seen from the deck. Breathtaking views complement the highest building standards with imported granites, marbles, fittings, appliances and furnishings; Golden Pavilion comforts the eye and soothes the soul.

The one bedroom cottage means that more of your family can be accomodated in perfect luxury. The cottage is also ideal for independent teenagers, nannies, family friends or perhaps assistants who you would like to accompany you on your vacation.

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.

STAFF AND SERVICES: Golden Pavilion Villa is fully equipped to accommodate anything from small family holidays, to large events including weddings or corporate functions. The estate manager will be happy to share his knowledge of the islands with you and provide information on restaurant options, sporting destinations, sightseeing possibilities, to shopping needs.

About Matt Restell

The estate manager Matt, is an expert at taking care of guests and ensuring their vacation is outstanding. Originally from England he has now made the British Virgin Islands his home along with his wife Gemma who is a primary school teacher at the local international school. They have both spent many days travelling around British Virgin Islands exploring and will give you the best suggestions for days out at sea and on land. Matt and Gemma live at nearby Lambert Bay a short five minute drive away from Golden Pavilion Villa. They enjoy welcoming new guests and repeat guests returning as 'family'. We look forward to meeting you!

Matt Restell purchased this villa in 2008

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.

Amazing Paradise

  • 5 of 5

Simply the most amazing time. Have been to the BVI's a couple of times, but nothing compares to the pure bliss of staying at the Golden Pavillion.

From the house, to the grounds, to the view, to the staff-- everything is truly superb.

The most relaxing place I have ever visited.

Our family loves to travel and we have been to some pretty amazing places but the Golden Pavillion tops them all! First, let me say that the pictures do not do it justice. Everywhere you look, any direction, you see so much beauty! LOVE the house, the grounds, the pool, the view.....all of that, but what really makes it special are Kate and Tony, the managers of the house. You will find Kate in the kitchen making the MOST incredible food......breakfasts with home made pastries, to delicious lunch with homemade cookies, to the best dinners that I have had anywhere (and you don't even have to clean up!) Tony, the Captain, will take you to some of the most beautiful places and show you things that most wouldn't normally see. Both of them are such an added gift to such an fascinating place! I am still dreaming of Kate's meals and the boat trips with Tony. If you want the "vacation of a lifetime", I would suggest you go the Golden Pavillion Villa. Words just can't capture the beauty and wonder that you will find there.

I promise that you will have the time of your life.

A superb place to stay. Luxurious, very well run, the chef is the best on the entire island. The managers could not have tried harder to accommodate all our wishes. This property has everything in place for the perfect vacation.

Most luxurious, beautiful, enjoyable Villa rental...ever!!!!

  • 5 of 5

I've returned to Golden Pavilion for the third time - twice as a large family group and most recently as a girls week! Golden Pavilion is amazing in so many ways. The wonderfully secluded setting with the most amazingly beautiful view I've ever seen; the beautifully designed Villa - set perfectly for 8 or 10 people with wonderfully luxurious suites with all the details of the finest hotel; the fantastic infinity pool and nearby white sand gorgeous beach which typically has only a couple of people on it; the amazing care given by the extraordinary Villa Couple - Kate and Tony - who take care of every need before you even know you need it! Kate's a chef who rivals the top NYC chefs and can conform to any dietary needs. Tony is a great guide to the waters and island life!

All in all I give Golden Pavilion my highest recommendation and can honestly say you will be incredibly happy you went there!
