Welcome to Villa Zensei

Villa Zensei’s name reflects the zen you’ll find within, incredible design with seamless ebb and flow

Much more than a home, it is a tranquil retreat, a spa, a private art gallery and spectacular work of art unto itself.

When your everyday life is spent in the public eye, you want a completely private escape from the world. A place to relax away from the pressure, and the cameras, and the demands. Welcome to Villa Zensei, your personal oasis of calm.

Situated in Marbella’s most exclusive area of Sierra Blanca, Cascadas de Camojan, this is an architectural masterpiece and true work of art.

Villa Zensei’s name reflects the Zen you’ll find within, combined with the multi-sensory experience you will enjoy when stepping into this villa: a visual, inspiring, and relaxing experience for your eyes, ears, touch and imagination.

Indoors and out, Villa Zensei is a feast for the soul and senses; from the showpiece Japanese-style water garden on entry and designer-commissioned works of art inside, to the ink-black reflective infinity pool contrasting with chain-link pop art. Even the trees seem to be sculpted for aesthetics and your viewing pleasure.

Spanish olives and ferns breathe life into Villa Zensei’s 3,000m2 of muted Spanish marble, where natural light illuminates vast interiors – each entirely unique, thanks to custom design and bespoke works of art, and yet contributing to the home’s seamless ebb and flow.

In a world of premium properties, there is simply no compare to villa Zensei

At the centre of it all, a bespoke piece for Villa Zensei: Pulse, an incredible red-ribbon sculpture that twists through the home’s three levels – the literal and figurative heart of the home. Commissioned especially for Villa Zensei, Pulse breathes life and energy into every space.

Villa Zensei’s pièce de résistance is the incredible master suite, which sits on a vast, cantilevered platform that glides out over the inky-black infinity pool – a smooth sheet of glass that mirrors the trees above and reflects enticing silhouettes that change with the light of day.

Here, every space is carefully considered to maximise the use of light and shade. Fixed elements – staircases, pathways and landings – are no longer fixed, but rather appear to float, allowing the home’s natural energies to flow freely and with a sense of calm.

The home’s glass walls – all custom height and taller than standard windows – offer incredible views of the surrounding scenery and slowly melt away into the floor, leaving a completely open flow between the exterior and interior of the property.

The spa and fitness suite is a complete sanctuary that easily rivals Marbella’s first-rate hotels, and is equipped with a state-of-the-art TechnoGym, anti-shock flooring, TV and sound system, and other features to please even the most demanding trainers.

For guests of The Luxury Villa Collection, our concierge acts as your right-hand to organise personal experiences, exclusive restaurant and club reservations, and any other need. Your personal trainer, chef, and other staff are also welcome at Villa Zensei.

The first living space is designed for gazing at the bespoke red ribbon sculpture, twisting through a glass shaft passing through all 3 floors of the villa. The scale of the sculpture is matched by waterfall-like peacock blue drapes to one side, and the seamless floating staircase to the other.

The stylish, monochrome main living room looks out onto the pool and gardens, and features chain-link modern artwork and a white cube that opens up to reveal a complete cocktail bar. Bright textiles and colour-changing LED lights add a pop of colour. Glass walls disappear into the floor for indoor-outdoor living, doubling the size of the space.

The TV lounge is a cosy family cocoon that contrasts perfectly with wide-open spaces elsewhere in the villa. A curved wooden TV screen extends over the oversized sofa. Drop the blinds for a home-cinema experience with incredible surround sound.
