Akasha – the ultimate in paradise
Defined in Sanskrit text as 'Ether', the most subtle of the five elements, and in Homeric Greek as "pure, fresh air" or "clear sky", Akasha is a positive substance, filled with unseen energies and intelligence.
Akasha sits on a hillside in the exclusive Cap Estate overlooking the Caribbean sea with views down to the world heritage site of the Pitons and of the national park – Pigeon Island. From this unrivalled location and with a glass of wine in your hand you can watch the sail boats and mega yachts as they head into the Rodney Bay marina or watch the stunning sunsets.
A contemporary villa designed for Caribbean living, Akasha combines the best of modern living with the relaxed lifestyle of the Caribbean. Every room boasts spectacular views, with huge floor to ceiling windows and minimum distractions from the stunning vistas.
Featuring a state of the art Lutron lighting system, and whole home Crestron music and video distribution you can relax by the pool with your favourite sounds delivered right from your iPod, the music server or internet radio. Listen to the same music in any of the rooms inside the house or on the lookout level while enjoying the spectacular views.
Each bedroom has a flat-panel TV allowing you to choose a movie 'on demand' from the extensive movie library or watch cable TV. Crestron panels located on each floor allow you to manage all the music, lighting, entertainment systems, security, air conditioning, fans and security gates. These can also be controlled via the remote controls found in each room. Alternatively you could just enjoy the peace and tranquility offered by this location. At night time choose a scene from the Lutron lighting system – there are blue LED lights to create a tranquil environment.
The Great Room includes the Lounge, Dining space and the Kitchen. The Lounge is equipped with a 50” plasma and surround sound using Orb speakers and Linn sub-woofer. Natuzzi leather seating helps to add to the experience. If you fold the 10ft high glass doors then you can fully appreciate the views or just walk onto the main terrace where further seating allows you to relax in the gentle breeze which blows across the location.
The detail and thought put into the design includes strategic locations of windows allowing the breeze to pass through the house and reducing the need for the air conditioning making the villa more environmentally friendly. The eco thinking has extended to capturing rain water in a separate tank and installation of solar panels for hot water.
In the Kitchen you will find an Italian – Scavolini kitchen equipped with two ovens, microwave, fridge and freezer, dishwasher. In the island unit there is an ice maker, wine cooler, an additional sink and seating for six. The Laundry room houses an additional fridge and freezer for storing those extra items when you entertain your guests. You can serve those special dishes either inside on the large glass dining table which has seating for 12, outside on the Dining terrace or in the intimate outdoor Nook area. Maybe you prefer to barbeque on the large built-in Viking outdoor grill which can be lit up at night. From here you can serve drinks to those sitting on the seats in the swimming pool.
Offering a fully air conditioned environment,Akasha also boasts a 9 seat Theater with a 110" screen, able to screen high definition Blu-Ray DVD's. The best in sound quality is created using a mix of Meridian and Linn speakers controlled by Crestron. The room was constructed using ‘floating’ room techniques found in world famous concert halls.
The games room offers the opportunity to play some pool, poker or table tennis or if you wish just watch the ‘game’ on cable.
Take the elevator upstairs and entertain guests in the main bar area and play the 1976 Yamaha Grand Piano.
The elevator travels up further to the master floor level. The master bedroom boasts a Super King size bed with views over Pigeon island and a private balcony. Again you can listen to surround sound and watch the boats sailing down to Rodney bay or Marigot bay. The bathroom boasts a double hot tub which has:
• Ten Bodymassage backjets for each bather and six Flexjet™ whirlpool jets to stimulate a professional massage
• Eight effervescence ports and four chromatherapy lights and three LED lights enhance the bathing experience
While you lie in the tub or take a shower, you can watch the tv or listen to your favourite music all at the touch of a switch. The Master level also has an extra room which could be used as a Study or bedroom for a younger member of the family.
The top level has a Look-out for watching the world go by or star gazing at night – not forgetting that should you wish, you can listen to some of your favourite music along with a glass of wine from the fridge located close by. Here you can see the Pitons, Mount Gimme and both the Caribbean Sea and Atlantic Ocean – truly remarkable.

The Cap Estate region
The first thing visitors to St. Lucia will notice is how exotically green it is. The 238-square-mile island is dotted by protected parklands that preserve its lush foliage, which serves as home to parrots, wild birds and a range of four-legged critters that would rather avoid human contact.
Topographically speaking, St. Lucia resembles nearby Dominica in its mountainous, volcanic appearance. In fact, its two most widely known landmarks are Les Pitons, twin mountain peaks that drop dramatically to the water's edge near Anse des Pitons on the island's west coast. The site is beautiful and alluring.
The island has been occupied by a number of European invaders, but the influence of the French is still most deeply felt today, in the names of its cities, towns and bays, in the architecture still evident today and in the French-inflected patois spoken by islanders here. English, however, is spoken at all in island restaurants.
One of the island's main attractions is the Sulphur Springs Volcano, where visitors can get up close to bubbling pools of lava and steaming sulfurous spouts. Another popular site is Diamond Waterfall and Mineral Baths, where visitors can splash in the sulphur-infused waters or take pictures of the lovely falls. Nearly every type of water sport -- water skiing, snorkeling, windsurfing and the like -- is offered here. Diving is a very popular pastime for visitors, and the west coast is most commonly the choice because of its calmer waters.
Nature lovers, divers and those who want to experience an exotic Caribbean island with still many of the modern conveniences of home will find St. Lucia to far exceed their expectations.
