The extraordinary new Kishti Villa Collection

Kishti, an Urdu word for boat or canoe, is often used by poets and composers to express a mystic sense of being at one with the sea, in tune with nature and the lords of creation. The owners have co-opted the word to spotlight the mystical aesthetics and Eastern/Western sensibilities of their new collection of three stunning villas on Anguilla.

The theme flowing through each villa is sea, the ever-present sea. Prodigious floor-to-ceiling windows create the sense of being on a liner in mid-ocean, infinity pools and hot tubs overlook the sea while fountains and cascades echo the murmur of wavelets indoors and outdoors. They raise the bar for style and sophistication in Caribbean vacations.
