The designers of The Empress were inspired by it's perfect orientation to the sandy beach and blue Pacific in front and graceful green mountains behind. She was designed to highlight Maui`s beauty rather than make a statement of her own. The trade winds are welcomed through the 30 foot doors which open at both ends of the great hall. The living space is not circumscribed by walls; the living space extends naturally out towards the tropical courtyard reaching to the mountains on one side, and the sea on the other. On the summer solstice the sun sets on the horizon in perfect alignment with the center axis of the villa.
Enter The Empress through it's teak double doors and find your own private retreat awaiting you. Announce your arrival on the antique Chinese court gong. Enjoy a nap on the elaborately hand carved Balinese day bed. Light the abundant tropical tiki torches placed throughout the property and dine under the moonlight Hawaiian style. One of the bedroom suites has a kitchenette and private outside entrance which is perfect for a nanny, personal assistant or security staff. She is truly a rare opportunity and is an absolutely perfect estate home for large families, executive board retreats, princes and princesses, or public persons seeking privacy with full hotel-style amenities.
Within each bedroom is a private bath with either marble shower or large deep soaking tub and a sunning lanai or direct access outdoors to the courtyard. The Empress is comprised of natural stone floors, handsome mahogany tone cabinetry, flowing streams and ponds, tropical watercolor artwork, marble floors and counters, sweeping floor to ceiling glass pocket and screen doors, and plentiful fine quality bed and bath linens.
