What makes it special: A truly one-of-a-kind villa, built inside of a 200 year old water reservoir.
The most spectacular part of Aljibe are its living room and bedroom. Located in the inside of a 200 year old water reservoir, these two rooms sit inside of a truly majestic atmosphere. Hand-crafted furniture, atmospheric lighting, and works of art by some of the island’s most renowned artists enhance the sheer rock walls, while a high definition surround-sound stereo system turns the extraordinary acoustics of this rocky space into an audiophile’s dream.
Located in the mezzanine floor, the master bedroom sits just below the exposed rock arches that concealed El Aljibe for centuries, illuminated by a large window that lights up the bedroom area during the day. This villa is the ideal destination for a romantic getaway, a honeymoon, or perhaps just a once-in-a-lifetime indulgence, and has been rated as one of the Top 100 Places to Stay by Grand Viajes magazine.
Intimate and extraordinary, this one-of-a-kind destination boasts all the amenities you will need, from a modern kitchen to an ample bathroom, and includes a built-in Jacuzzi in the private terrace area.
