Enjoy the large freshwater pool, Jacuzzi, tennis court, fitness center and lush tropical gardens. Sunbathe on the wide sandy beach right outside your door or relax with an in house spa treatment, while your children delight at their own personal Kid’s Club.

A member of Virtuoso, Andrew Harper and the Crown Collection, Cerulean was voted one of the best beach villas in the world by Conde Nast Traveler, and praised by Vogue, Travel+Leisure and Departures. One of the most popular “super” villas in the Caribbean, with a high rate of repeat guests, Cerulean Villa effortlessly brings elegance to any holiday or special event.
Open and airy and designed to take advantage of the spectacular views and breezes, the seven bedrooms at Cerulean Villa have high ceilings and large louvered doors which face the sea. Designed for both style and comfort, the well appointed bedrooms are spacious, an average of 515 square feet, and include walk in closets, en-suite marble baths, and air conditioning. Built for privacy, each room has its own entrance off a covered breezeway and most have private terraces with comfortable seating arrangements. The rooms are equipped with land based telephones with free long distance service to the United States, i-pod docking stations, and wireless internet service. Although we believe that the best view is the one outside your window, televisions and video players can be placed in the rooms upon request. Photographed by both House and Garden and Italian Architectural Digest, the villa is outfitted with custom furnishings, stone floors, and mosaics, all of which were handcrafted exclusively for Cerulean in Mexico and Morocco.
While the bedrooms offer guests privacy, the common areas are designed for socializing and entertaining, with both outdoor and indoor living rooms and dining areas. Cerulean Villa comes with all the toys one would expect, including a TV room, offering 60 cable channels, video players, a library of popular movies and books, and a sound system with speakers throughout the common areas that can connect to guest’s I-Pods. In addition there is a dedicated guest office with a computer with broadband connectivity and fax machine.
Staff includes General Manager, culinary team, maids, butlers, gardeners, and security. The house is staffed 24 hours seven days a week, with the bulk of the staff arriving before the first guest wakes up and staying late into the evening. Additional security, baby sitters, and secretarial services are available if needed. Little touches, such as cool, refreshing towels served poolside, exotic cocktails at sunset, and tropical flowers adorning your bed in the evening that set Cerulean Villa apart. Whether you stay for a weekend or a month fulfilling your every wish is the only thing on the agenda at this Villa.
