Inspired and styled after the plantation manors of the Caribbean, Martinique Villas By-The-Sea® are the ultimate expression of gracious living at Seri Tanjung Pinang, providing discerning homeowners with a haven of privacy and tranquillity, amid lush tropical landscaping.

A distinctive feature of the villas are their unique layouts which encourage interaction between the indoors and outdoors with generous windows, high ceilings, spacious terraces and verandas. Each villa boasts its own tension-edged pool that stretches out to sea and is set within its garden lawn. The home itself is thoughtfully-designed to offer well-defined public spaces for entertaining and private areas for quiet retreat. The villas are all freehold, with land areas of up to 12,860 square feet and built-up areas of up to 9,000 square feet with approximately 800 metres of frontage facing the Straits, allowing villa residents the luxury of a private gated seafront walkway.

Exquisite villas provide discerning homeowners with a haven of privacy, relaxation and tranquility, set in modern tropical and Caribbean-inspired architectural themes.Unique layouts encourage interaction between the indoors and outdoors with generous window openings, high ceilings, spacious terraces and verandas. In a secure, guarded environment and with approximately 750 metres of frontage facing the sea, villa residents enjoy the luxury of a private gated seafront walkway.

The size, layout and design of Martinique was a first for Penang in terms of new-built seafront properties. Unparalleled prime seafront location for a new-built bungalow with freehold title. It blends classic lines with the best of materials like nyatoh balustrades, Italian marble flooring and Burmese teak. The sea-facing infinity pool is just the right size for swimming laps yet a perfect place to simply relax and rejuvenate. The dining and kitchen areas open out onto a bright and spacious internal courtyard. Nothing is spared in the fittings. For example, the master bathroom has floor-to-ceiling marble tilling even has its own “secret garden”.

Each Martinique villa has its own private sea frontage of almost 800 metres and spectacular views of the Andaman sea and city skyline of George Town. The guest pavilion on one wing offers breath taking 360° views that sweep into the lawn, sea-front promenade and the blue sea. Martinique is the product of a revived reclamation and development project that had been twice abandoned and left for several years as an eyesore and wasteland.

Martinique is pioneering – when introduced to the Penang market in 2007, it was the first-of-its-kind new-built seafronting property, winning South East Asia Property Awards ‘Best Villa Development (Malaysia)’ organised by Property Report Singapore, 2011.

With its classic design, spaciousness and fine finishing, Martinique set a new benchmark for luxury properties, which indirectly enhanced Penang’s position as a top property destination in Malaysia.
