Lotus is set within a lush, colorful tropical landscape that surrounds the villa; the grounds are simply gorgeous. You approach the villa along a palm line stone walkway that sets the stage for a beautiful house with exotic touches. Opening the door, the stunning view immediately captures your eye. Multicolored shades of blue, from the turquoise pool to the sapphire sea and sky are framed by the amazing gardens filled with a riot of color and greenery. The large pool, set in an Epi wood deck, perfectly complements the view.
Spacious covered and open outdoor spaces, flowing from every room, provide ample areas for lounging and dining. A unique thatch roof Indonesian gazebo provides a colorful and exotic place to relax and watch the magnificent sunset. The interiors feature classic terracotta tiles throughout. The airy living room is tastefully furnished in comfortable, oversize teak furniture upholstery in white and blues to complement the view. Eclectic touches with Indonesian and Moroccan flair add style and exotic character. The electric and exotic theme extends to the exterior spaces mixing teak, rattan and contemporary pieces.
The well-equipped contemporary galley style kitchen in white woods, cream marble and stainless opens to the view and breeze. Its a perfect place to prepare meals for dining at one of the indoor or outdoor dining areas.
The three equal size bedrooms, situated at each end of the covered deck, exude a romantic and private attitude. Each is a private oasis with a stylish canopy bed in either teak or steel mixed with soft grey and white linens and furnishing, all with sea views. The bathrooms are soft and inviting in white woods and creamy marble. Walk in showers feature marble tiles or Indonesian river pebbles for a wonderful sensation under foot.
Although secluded, you are close to amenities. Its a short drive to Baie Longue Beach and to Baie Nettles new culinary stars; Le Sand, Dreams and Mezza Luna. You are 2 minutes to the restaurants in Cupecoy such as Marios Bistro and the new star, Escape. Five minutes more to the airport. In 10 minutes you reach the charming French capital of Marigot with bakeries, restaurants, shops, historic buildings and Creole Market. Drive 25 minutes to Grand Case or Philipsburgs shopping haven.

Lotus is in a great location and has a great layout with the very private 3 ensuite bedrooms all located in what are effectively separate buildings. All have an ocean view and all are very well appointed with spacious baths and fine linens. We used the kitchen extensively. It is very well equipped. We spent almost all of our time outdoors. I don't think I sat on the sofa inside the living room but once. The outdoor pagoda is a lovely shaded place to chill in the afternoon when the sun gets hot. The pool is huge and great for swimming. Additionally, there is a very nice sound system so you have music playing outdoors and in. Finally, you are 3 minutes from the Grand Marche grocery store which is super convenient. I highly recommend Lotus.
Lotus was a lovely villa with all the necessary commodities. We never lacked anything, perfectly equipped, surround system indoor and especially outdoors was amazing, the beds and pillows were better than anywhere we ever slept (we'd love to know where you got your pillows). The cleaning services of Geraldine were excellent. We were close to airport, stores and restos. The ocean view and sunset were spectacular everyday. The villa reached our our desires and exceeded our expectations.
The house was incredible and is set up perfectly to allow you to enjoy the weather outside. Very clean house, spotless pool. Has everything you need.
great villa,comfort,style,accessibility,needs better kitchen amenities!
the only bad thing are the carnivorous mosquitos!
We arrived on time and were picked up as expected from the airport and driven to the villa. The villa was beautiful, clean and the views were spectacular. The car that we rented was on site, but there were not any keys given the rental agent needed us to sign the contract. We were outside when they came and missed their call, so we waited for a long while to get access to the car. However, the caretaker, Herve, was very helpful and called them back. No issues.
The pre-arranged trip and activities were all great. The help of the staff at Luxury Retreats was fabulous. They were very responsive to questions and knowledgeable. While the villa was great, we would have liked it to be a bit closer to a bigger beach. The beaches near the villa were small. Also, we would suggest that the owners of the villa spray for mosquitoes and / or leave some torches for citronnella. The mosquitoes were the downside of the vacation and kept us in our rooms a lot.
