Encantada Vieques, is a stunning five acre estate bordering the Caribean sea just west of Esperanza on the Southern side of Vieques. This brand new estated is an open air luxury villa designed by famed architect John Hix which will maximize your time spent enjoying Vieques natural beauty. The home features absolutely stunning views from every room, including five outdoor showers. Lounge in the 94 foot infinity pool, enjoy roof deck yoga and sunsets, walk down to Coco Beach or the village just down the road. 

Encantada is only 2 minutes from the Malecon in Esperanza yet still offers the serenity and seclusion you will love right on our own private beach!

Enjoy the night sky and see the Milky Way, Mars, Saturn and Jupiter clearly and you'll realize how everywhere you usually travel has light pollution that ruins your star views. When you wake up in the morning you may see wild horses walking along the beach and hear waves crashing on the shore.

At dusk, AKA "golden hour" you'll see the most beautiful sunsets reflected on the clouds and the coconut palm trees reaching up towards the sky west of the property!!

I had a wonderful vacation with a group of amazing women! The yoga was a great way to kickstart my winter fitness and the meals were delicious. Loved the Villa, oceanfront with beautiful beach. Our local guides were thoughtful and caring. I would highly recommend and will be back to Rincon!

Still in the afterglow...this retreat was about so much more than yoga. I felt nourished physically, spiritually and emotionally. Liz does such an incredibly thoughtful and creative job of organizing. The food, the company, the setting, the activities...all perfection. I can't wait to go back!
