A truly luxurious experience begins with some discreet planning; a preference form thoughtfully sent, so that precise tastes can be taken into consideration. Upon arrival, these desires should then be delivered as subtle surprises that create a sincere welcome. Discerning guests are just that, discerning, we notice what is there, as well as what is missing. We don’t care if Kim Kardashian has a house down the beach, a botched welcome can ruin a wonderful getaway.
Required details upon arrival? Complete privacy and seclusion. On top of that, uncompromising views – perhaps an ocean vista seen across a private beach. My private beach.
What else? “A sense of place” – real authenticity, seen everywhere – in the art adorning the walls by local artists, in the local, organic food freshly prepared by a private chef who inhabits this terroir. One who can provide a Michelin-starred atmosphere with a taste and homage to Abuela’s traditions.
The real luxury is in the art of being surprised – unpredictable pleasures around every corner and setting sun — that’s the fun.
And this surprise?
A private five-star villa that rivals the activities and services of the greatest hotel and resort experiences.
You will exhaust your requests – I was finally defeated by the ever-evocative ”yes” of my butler.
A personal trainer at sunrise? Of course, sir.
Yoga on our private beach for sunset? Why yes, sir.
And a particularly special wine this evening? Yes, of course, I’ll call for the sommelier.
Every preference, need and desire is catered for in one private villa. Indeed, Casa Tesoro is the real deal. Now, excuse me as I go bathe in the water and the sun on, oh, did I mention it? My private beach
