Located within prestigious “Little Mountain” on the island paradise of Tortola, Allamanda Estate is situated on a breezy six-acre hilltop among lush, flowering gardens. The official residence of the Governor of the British Virgin Islands from 1998 to 2004, this property has been recently refurbished in a stunning blend of Indonesian, Chinese and Indian pieces and antiques. Perfect for families and corporate retreats for groups up to ten, wake up each new morning to one of the most stunning ocean views in the Caribbean!
Kick back in style next to the waggishly shaped swimming pool. The deck tiles of the terrace are bordered with graceful palms and island flora, set with cushioned chaise loungers. On one end of the terrace is a shady verandah, handsomely furnished with cushioned wicker seating, television, tables for casual dining or games and a wet bar for the consummate entertainer. A gas grill sets the tone for some lovely alfresco dining.
The covered foyer is flanked by two stately urns and leads to the tiled gallery strewn with Persian rugs and original art. This gallery leads to the traditional drawing room, elegantly furnished with plush seating and a reading library. Through double doors lies the gracious formal dining room that connects to the large kitchen. Glass sliders open to a covered portico where wide arches frame a sweeping stone terrace overlooking the sea to the south horizon – perfect for sunset cocktails!
Off the great room is a spacious air-conditioned king master bedroom with a romantic four-poster bed and an en-suite bath. This magnificent suite opens out to an L-shaped covered verandah and a large Balinese daybed. Allamanda Estate’s guest pavilion is adjacent to the verandah, for privacy and comfort, and offers two spacious, air conditioned king bedroom suites.
Well-selected artwork and potted plants enhance this villa’s gracious charm along with soft indirect lighting framing the ceilings, giving the villa a warm and welcoming ambience. Allamanda Estate is also an ideal location for weddings, honeymoons and anniversaries. You may also arrange for a private chef, nanny, massages and day spa services with the Luxury Retreats dedicated concierge. Nearby activities include snorkeling and windsurfing at idyllic Trellis Bay, the mouth of which is dotted with white sailboats. Have your vacation, your way!

We are so happy we found and chose Allamanda Estate in Virgin Gorda. Beautiful location with all the amenities we needed. It was a wonderful week. The concierge was extremely helpful in setting up the reservation and was able to answer all of our pre-travel questions regarding the estate. Once we arrived, the owners gave us personalized attention and were there for all our needs and questions. I can\'t say enough about our wonderful experience. - Sharon L., Massachusetts, USA
