Villa Empat Puluh Dua is an architectural icon for the Australian tropics, reinterpreted for a style of private luxury living that is entirely the domain of the dedicated internationalist. On one side, a series of levels cascade down a hillside of tropical rainforest looking out over the Coral Sea and the town of Port Douglas. On the other, an infinity edge pool amongst the treetops.
Five minutes walk will take you down to the coral sands of Four Mile Beach or into the heart of the international resort town of Port Douglas itself. You might also choose to visit the natural wonders of the Daintree Rainforest and the Great Barrier Reef, or have us arrange a fishing charter on the Coral Sea. Then again you may prefer to stay exactly where you are. Having discovered your own private tropical paradise at Villa Empat Puluh Dua you suddenly have no desire to leave it. That's human nature.
At Villa Empat Puluh Dua you have the use of seven individually designed suites that reflect a classical Asian sensibility. Designers Guild fabrics, soft leathers, and Grange French wrought iron and cane furniture feature throughout. Each bedroom has its own ensuite bathroom. The exclusive L'Occitane toiletries are French. The unique views of the Coral Sea? Exclusively Australian.
Relaxation is a state of mind. And given the right location, a state of bliss. The Villa's multiple timber decks and terraces offer private retreats as well as the ultimate inside/outside entertaining possibilities, for sharing with those around you. The infinity edge pool provides the perfect setting to indulge in a massage or beauty treatment called up from the town below. As one of the world's most exclusive holiday houses Villa Empat Puluh Dua is a place where almost anything is possible. Yet doing very little may still prove to be the best thing of all.
Taste governs the senses. With this in mind, the Villa manager can arrange for a private chef of choice to look after your entire stay or to create specific meals utilising exotic ingredients of the Australian North. Fine dining also exists beyond the gates of the Villa with Port Douglas' acclaimed restaurants just minutes away. The atmosphere is relaxed and personal. The food is distinctively Asian to Modern Australian. One thing remains constant. An emphasis on freshness. And taste.
The Villa has seven bedrooms: 3 King sized and 4 Queens for up to 18 guests. More intimate groups who don't require the entire Villa may book a minimum of 3 bedrooms. All bookings are for 3 nights or more. But regardless of number of rooms or length of stay the Villa will be for your exclusive use. After all, a private tropical paradise should be just that. Private.
Your stay at Villa Empat Puluh Dua begins with a welcome gift of tropical fruits and handmade chocolates. The Villa manager will also greet you on arrival and introduce you to the full range of possibilities for your visit. Chef, masseuse, butler, drivers, and charters of all kinds are available. With the feel of an exclusive mini resort, this is a place where even the most individual of requirements can be met.
Daily housekeeping times will be tailored to meet your need for privacy. All rooms are sheltered from the tropical sun by electric timber louvers, ceiling fans and individual AC systems. The Villa also features a CD, DVD, and reading library for your entertainment.
