Balinese

With stunning views of the Turks and Caicos Banks, a unique modern layout and exotic accents, villa Balinese is an unforgettable retreat. Located on Ocean Drive on Providenciales and laid out around a private infinity pool, the spacious three-bedroom villa pairs striking interiors with a gorgeous oceanfront setting. Though the property has its own access to the water, there’s also a beach just minutes away.

The centerpiece of Balinese is an infinity pool and Jacuzzi that looks out over the ocean. It’s bordered by a large terrace furnished with daybeds and crossed by an arched bridge. Follow a set of steps down to a gazebo and, further down, access to the ocean.

These 7 luxury villas are all within a housing complex designed by Giorgos Alexiou called the Aenaon Villas located on top of Santorini, Greece on the edge of the Caldara.

amazing-views-architecture-place-stay-5-pool-thumb-630xauto-45548

The setting is spectacular with views of the Aegean Sea that seem to go on forever and feature both the sunrise and the sunset. The building too is pretty spectacular with its traditional Cycladic architecture stepping down the rocky slope, following the natural curves of the landscape.

amazing-views-architecture-place-stay-12-terrace-thumb-630xauto-45562

The traditional architecture of Aenaon Villas is a bold splash of white that incorporates rock walls to tie it into its rocky setting and the stepped design allows for several different levels of spacious terraces.

amazing-views-architecture-place-stay-17-dining-thumb-630xauto-45572

The curvy lines within the facade and windows are a stunning compliment to the boulder formations within the landscape.

The added detail of rocks to create the chimney covers is another perfect tie in to the landscape.Boulders are also make appearances within the pool areas creating amazing sculptural statements.

The terraces surrounding the pools are large and spacious and accommodate several different lounging zones – each with shade provided by either umbrellas or trellises.

The pool has an infinity edge and the overall effect of it combined with the view is very surreal.

Its also a great place to watch the day end or begin – or even to stare up at the galaxy at night.

amazing-views-architecture-place-stay-23-bed-thumb-630xauto-45584

The roof top terrace has a small boulder bursting through the deck and a much, much larger one creating a backrest to the bench seating.

Not all the villas are filled with living edge furniture. This living room has a pair of plank coffee tables with decidedly straight edges.
