6 Exclusive Villas in Paradise
Karaya Blue is a unique, exquisitely-designed, genuinely sustainable, micro-development located next to the unspoiled beauty of a 50-acre reserved natural open space just a 10 minute stroll (or fun EV ride) from the turquoise water and soft white sand of TCI’s Long Bay Beach – widely recognized as one of the world’s foremost kiteboarding venues and described by Conde Nast Traveler as one of the ‘Best Island Beaches in the World’.
Just a Quick stroll to TCI's Long Bay Beach
Each Karaya Blue luxury villa is set on a private ½-acre estate deftly concealed by lush natural plants, trees and tropical foliage. Each villa will be a magical ‘sanctuary within a sanctuary’ that is ‘powered by nature’ with a fully-integrated solar electrical system featuring Tesla™ energy storage and electric vehicle technology along with a free Polaris Gem™ or Moke™ electric vehicle. We’ve invested in smart technology to make this luxury villa affordable and an investment within reach!

Two Innovative Villa Layouts
Karaya Blue is a truly sustainable resort community combining the joy of modern, open plan, indoor/outdoor living with full immersion in and respect for the natural organic environment.
Stress-free Villa Ownership with Karaya Blue
Whether or not Karaya Blue owners take advantage of the turn-key Rental Program available from TCI’s premier rental agency, TKCA, they will also benefit from high-quality, year-round property management (maintenance, landscaping, pool and beach cleaning, and waste removal, for example) under a sensible Restrictive Agreement ensuring harmonious co-existence with their neighbors.
The Turks and Caicos has one of the highest per night vacation rental & occupancy rates in the entire Caribbean.
Elegance + Privacy + Convenience
Our ingeniously simple Karaya Blue villa designs – essentially integrated concrete structures enclosed by full-height, triple-pane, heat & hurricane-resistant windows and doors – fully exploit the advanced structural and climate-control properties of today’s high-tech building elements to create a state-of-the-art, modern, tropical-island incarnation of the iconic indoor/outdoor ‘glass house’ concept originally created by architectural super-luminaries Mies Van Der Rohe and Philip Johnson.
This – combined with the latest in sustainable technology and interior design – creates an active retreat for the forward-thinking community in making smart sustainability synonymous with luxury.
Natural Open Space
Naturally enhanced by the flora and fauna of the 50-acre reserved open space, Karaya Blue is a serene, lyrical, quiet sanctuary in harmony with its beautiful surroundings. From inside the villa, the world outside – from the meticulous landscaping, the lush natural vegetation, the elegant saline reflecting pool, and the inviting tropical hardwood deck – becomes a frameless, timeless, living wallpaper.
Function Meets Form
High-end finished for our 3-bedroom/3-bath villas include tile or marble slab showers, Grohe fixtures, lacquered cabinetry, gourmet appliances and sleek quartz work surfaces as standard, and with further customization available upon request. Optional extras include a guesthouse, garage or carport, roof terrace, and Tesla electric vehicle and Q3 yacht.
Amenities & Features
Karaya Blue’s breathtaking aesthetics are combined with a host of intelligent practical attributes:
Each Karaya Blue villa will include an advanced water catchment and recycling system, as well as a fully-integrated solar electrical system custom-designed by RENU energy TCI, featuring solar panels for power generation, and a Tesla™ Powerwall energy storage package. In addition to a home vehicle charger (LEARN MORE) buyers will also receive either a Polaris Gem™ or Moke™ electric vehicle, with an option to upgrade to a Tesla Model 3.
Our villas are also specially designed to remain cool and welcoming both day and night – with abundant shade provided by the broad cantilevered roof, ceiling and floor insulation, carefully-located clearstory ventilating windows, and low-E filtering treatment on all the glass. And to further conserve electricity, all villa lighting is LED, water heaters are point-of-use or on-demand, and only Energy Star* appliances, ceiling fans, and air conditioning units are used.
As referenced above, our Karaya Blue villa designs – incorporating impact-resistant windows and doors, and a monolithic reinforced concrete construction shell, engineered and built to the same hurricane standards that Miami/Dade County Florida (the world’s gold standard) requires – is supremely stable and secure in even the worst tropical storm conditions.
Karaya Blue villa owners also may choose to take advantage of the comprehensive furniture package we’ve curated specifically for our villas in partnership with leading New York design and furniture maker Orior. These packages can either be acquired as is, or as modified by mutual agreement, but in either case will be shipped and expertly installed in your villa before your first stay.
Karaya Blue is an easy 15-minute ride by taxi or rental car from both the island’s international airport Providenciales, and its beautiful private jet terminal, Provo Air Center.
