Once You've Been To This Hilltop Sanctuary By The Sea, You'll Never Want To Leave

With 270-degree views of the Caicos Banks, Bajacu Villa has it all

Every once in awhile, we come across a villa that’s just as much a work of art as it is a home. And the six-bedroom hilltop home known as Bajacu, with its wine-colored walls and signature palapas, is one of those architectural masterpieces that defies the usual definition of a luxury beachfront villa.

The Bajacu estate sits on one of the highest points on Providenciales, allowing for elevated views of the ocean that will have you breathing a little deeper, and a little slower, as you feel the stresses of the day fade into the background. Set on 8.52 acres, the property is surrounded by a thicket of palm trees to create a private tropical haven. But for all the property’s exterior that wows, it’s once you’ve ascended the stairs to the villa’s entrance that you realize just how special Bajacu is.

Renowned architect Maro Aldaco, named in Architectural Digest’s Top 100, designed Bajacu to maximize the signature Caribbean sea breeze, with indoor and outdoor spaces merging together harmoniously throughout the villa. The master suite has been customized with built-in furniture and eclectic statement pieces, as well as a private adjacent office. Meanwhile, two separate pavilions house five private guest suites, each with its own covered oceanview balcony.

A spacious open-air living and dining area sits at the heart of the property, covered with a high-ceilinged, hand-thatched palapa. And there’s no shortage of places outside to relax while you watch the sunrise or sunset, whether it’s under the waterfront gazebo or on an antique Balinese daybed on the cut stone viewing deck.

Or perhaps you’d prefer the infinity-edge pool…

But did we mention the private beach yet?

No, there really isn't a good reason to leave Bajacu once you've arrived. The vastness and allure of the property makes it hard to choose a favorite area. And if the hardest decision you have to make is whether to lounge in the infinity-edge pool or sunbathe next to a private lagoon, well... this must be the place.
