Baraka Point - A Lush Tropical Haven All To Yourself
By Compass + Twine
Baraka Point is a fully staffed private luxury estate in the British Virgin Islands that sits perched on an absolutely stunning lookout point. The view, you ask? The beloved property boasts a panoramic 260-degree oceanfront view that leaves jaws dropped - and lingering - on the floor. As far as villa experiences in the Caribbean go, you’d be hard pressed to find a place more spectacular and unique than Baraka Point. This Virgin Gorda retreat is a truly idyllic place to come together and gather with friends or family.
Six guest suites pepper the tropical landscape, hosting up 16 guests at one time. Each suite has its own character, many with beautiful Balinese or East Asian furniture pieces that the property owner has artfully picked out on her travels over the years. Whether it’s a beautiful claw foot soaking tub or an outdoor plunge pool, Baraka Point’s guest suites offer privacy, luxury and comfort. Each one is like a mini oasis within the sprawling lush property.
While the view takes everyone’s breathe away first and foremost, it won’t be long before all in your group start raving about the food. Not only do you have the private estate to yourself (it’s only every rented to one party at a time), but you have a private chef to yourself as well. Wake each day and meander through the flower-lined gravel pathways to an al fresco breakfast at the main copper-roofed pavilion house. The smell of fresh blueberry muffins will already be wafting through the air as you sip on coffee and gaze out on the sea and islands dotting the horizon. Mornings are exactly as you want them at Baraka Point, utterly relaxing.
Most of your days at Baraka will inevitably revolve around the stunning pool area just off the main pavilion. Beautiful daybeds and loungers fan out on one side, so you can look out across the pool’s infinity edge to the emerald green lawn and sweeping sea views beyond that. You couldn’t dream up a more pleasing setting for your eyes to feast on while unwinding beneath the Caribbean sunshine. The hardest part of your day will be pulling yourself away from this little slice of paradise. Luckily, the concierge team at Baraka will help lure you out to explore the British Virgin Islands with an array of amazing excursion opportunities. We suggest gathering your group for a day at sea, sailing on board a catamaran and visiting famous BVI spots like The Baths. You also can’t miss Baraka’s Beachside BBQ experience. For this outing, the concierge team will whisk you away on a short 5-minute ride down the coastline to Savannah Beach. Chef will already be there, grilling up fresh Mahi Mahi for fish tacos, while you and your group soak in the beauty of the BVI’s prettiest stretch of beach. Snorkel in the crystal clear water or stroll along Savannah’s soft powder white sand. When you’re ready, gather in a shaded beach palapa to enjoy chef’s delicious fish tacos, fresh fruit, guacamole, and his famous sea salt chocolate chip cookies.
Anything your group needs – from the concierge team, housekeeping team, or private chef at Baraka Point – they’re all there to help create the most memorable and personalized experience for your stay. Although, with a view like the one at Baraka Point, you won’t find yourself needing much at all.
