Villa Sapphire Bay is a villa that sets very high standards of luxury. Cliff-hanging between the two beautiful bays of Akrotiri peninsula, Marathi and Loutraki, Villa Sapphire Bay offers an unbeatable view of the sea that cannot be compared and that makes you wonder where you truly are.
At the end of a private driveway stand imposing and awe-inspiring two-storey buildings surrounded by 3000 sq meters of land, thus making it ideal not only for accommodation but also as facilities for various celebrations of up to 300 people. The serene combination of green, earthy and blue hues complements the already existing beauty of the landscape. The outdoor area is characterized by simplicity and ambiences that relax you and help your mind drift to an exotic level.
Guests are awed by the infinity of the sky and the sea that are in line with the refreshing aura of the cool blue pool and built in Jacuzzi(they can be heated on request) the view of which can also be enjoyed under the shade created by the pergola and its intertwining fragrant jasmine. The outdoors can be relished either by sitting at the clean-lined table under the pergola or by lying on the sun-loungers by the pool. Conveniently adjoining the area is the all-white and mirror back-splashed kitchen, which is fully equipped, and the indoor dining and sitting area that leads on to the rest of the house.
The villa has a minimal yet eclectic style with touches of brass, gold and bold colors. In tandem with the lush, white curtains, which drape the sliding glass doors that lead on to balconies that offer unobtrusive views of the Loutraki Bay, the décor brings to mind the old Regency style. This was the basis of the whole construction and decoration of the villa to begin with and which makes it unique and greatly different from today’s contemporary trends.
All six sleek bedrooms have ensuite granite-tiled bathrooms and Jacuzzi showers, and washbasins resting on high-quality marble tops with gold trimmings. Guests can luxuriate in deep slumber on anatomic mattresses, which guarantee their comfort and relaxation, and wake up to riveting views of the bay. Depending on guests’ wishes, two of the bedrooms can become twin or double while a sofa-bed in one of the three living rooms allows for an extra double bed.
In the living room of the ground floor, in which white and coral colors prevail, there is a large ottoman sofa and a cast-iron table surrounded by a modern version of classic vienna chairs.
The tiled patio that can be accessed from this area and all of the four bedrooms that are on this floor leads on to lawns adorned with olive trees.
Finally for those who wish to rest quietly during the whole day at the villa there is a path that can take them to the rocky side of the Loutraki sea and take pleasure in the crystal cool waters of the sea.
Overall, Villa Sapphire Bay was designed and created by its owners with a view to combining functionality with comfort, independence and aesthetics. It is a villa that can definitely be a highlight to your holidays or is ideal for arranging a party or a wedding in Crete
