“Greatest kiting set up and stay in the world”
Reviewed 16 April 2013 for a stay in March 2013

From the welcome, to the majestic tour from our suite to the beach through a mangrove forest, to perfect kiting for all abilities, to comfortable sleeping quarters, to complete kitchen setup, to clean your sandy feet wash stations, to paddleboards for non windy days, to shaded huts with sweet views of the turquoise water, to an amazing assortment of boards for use on light windy days, to gracious hosts who asked about how they could be helpful but were never imposing.

We stayed in two one-bedroom condos which were connected by a staircase. The condos.....bathrooms, kitchen, furnishings, washer, dryer, decks....were excellent. When we arrived Ritama helped make the arrangements for all of us perfect. We used the upstairs condo for our dinners so Ritama made sure we had a table with six chairs out on the deck. We had plenty of room for six adults...three couples. The beach is stunning and just down a beautiful path. I watched the sunrise every morning from a chair on the deck. We went to the IGA and the Gourmet IGA and usually ate two meals at the condo every day and one out. Our favorites include the Mango Reef, Magnolias, Hemmingways, Somewhere on The Beach and the Shark Bite.
A big thank you to the best hosts ever and rest assured we will be back!

Ritama did a great job in building the villas , you got privacy, space, shade, next to the pool and ocean.
It is a very user friendly place for KITE BOARDING, shelfs for equipment , quiet compressor on the beach to inflate your kites.
And it is only 5 km away from really good restaurants. Long Bay offers amazing kite boarding with noooo traffic. The most I've seen on the water on the 5km beach was 15 kiters. Usually it is less than 10 including the group taking lessons at the Provo kite boarding school and there location is walking distance on the beach from Esencia. This place is great.

“Blissful”

My husband and I spent a week at Essencia during Thanksgiving with my parents. It was absolutely wonderful. Can't say enough about how much we loved Long Bay Beach. Just gorgeous and secluded unlike Grace Bay Beach. In our opinion much better than the other beaches we visited. The water was shallow and calm with beautiful soft white sand but gotta watch out for buried conch shells in the sand which I read that you are allowed take two back home if you wish. The conch shells are huge and simply beautiful. Another great thing about Long Beach Bay is that it didn’t have any of the seaweed that we saw in other beaches. We also loved the convenience of having a jeep that allowed us to explore the island. The 2 bedrooms and two bathrooms Essencia Villa was very clean and had everything we needed. Ritama and Kabir were super helpful and made us feel very welcomed. We also enjoyed getting to know their two dogs and the cat. All in all it was a great vacation. However, please note the water is still a bit cool in late November and don’t forget to bring the insect repellent.

Ritama and Kabir were the best of hosts. Beautiful property. Quiet. Clean. Right on a huge secluded beach. Perfect for kiteboarders or sunbathing in the wind.

We stayed in Villa Wyakha last year just before Christmas and loved the place! The booking was easy and we contacted Ritama before our arrival and she organized the transportation from the airport to the villa for us, very nice and easy after a long flight.
The first days we could use the car of the owners' for shopping, but then we decided to rent our own for the remaining time as you really need the car to get around on the island.

We had the upper apartment and you could watch the amazing sunrise over the sea in the morning straight from the bed. The apartment was very clean and the surroundings well maintained. We also used the pool area a lot and almost every time had the whole place for ourselves. The beach was perfect and the kayaks and paddle boards were available all the time. You could really relax in this place, it's very quiet and you don't have to worry about being surrounded by tourist crowds.

Ritama is an excellent host and she did everything to make our holiday successful. We got to borrow the laptop for the entire time, and she even came up with some medicine when I got sick.

I think it's a dream holiday place for couples and families, we will definitely try to come back even if it is a long way!
