About Ritama Davidson
Kabir and Ritama - owners of Villa Esencia. Avid kiteboarders. Self-development trainers, authors. We wanted a place in nature that supports a simple and natural lifestyle.
Ritama Davidson purchased this Villa in 1998
Why Ritama Davidson chose Long Bay Hills
We were looking for a quiet, natural environment, close to nature and the sea, away from the buzz of city, road and people. This location fit that description perfectly. There was only one house nearby, no sounds except the wind, the trees and the sea.

Beautiful & Relaxing
We stayed in the penthouse and the view was AMAZING! The house is tastefully decorated. Pictures online don’t do it justice, it is much bigger than it appears. Host and hostess were friendly and accommodating. We will definitely stay here again when we return.
My husband and I recently stayed in the Karana Penthouse for our 20th anniversary and we could not have been happier. Kabir and Ritama were so gracious and helpful when we needed them but at the same time we felt like we were on our own little island with a private beach. The Penthouse is absolutely gorgeous, kitchen was fully equipped which was a bonus for us since we like to do our own cooking. Loved, loved, loved spending our evenings out on the balcony over looking the clear water of the ocean with a warm wind blowing...pure bliss. Thank you so much Kabir and Ritmama, we will definitely be back!

A 4 day stay at the Octagon Penthouse
We really enjoyed the Octagon Penthouse at Villa Esencia. It is a peaceful and luxurious space, with plenty of room to spread out. It even had a small anteroom which accommodated our daughter. The view is terrific, and the kiting on Long Bay Beach is beyond excellent. Overall a great visit, we will be back. Also, Ritama and Kabir are wonderful hosts, and made sure we had everything we might need for our stay.
Long Bay beach drive is on the South shore of the island, facing east. Sunrises are spectacular. It is peaceful and quiet and only a handful of people walk the beach. It is mainly residential and uncrowded. The water is very shallow (3-4 feet deep), warm and bright turquoise. The bottom is safe and sandy, without any rocks or big breaking waves.
There is almost always a soft breeze that will cool you down and keep you comfortable during the summer. The wind direction is conducive to great kiteboarding but beachcombing, walking, paddle-boarding and sunbathing are amongst preferred activities as well. Energizing sunrises and beautiful colorful sunset skies are a daily spectacle.
