Turks and Caicos: Inside Donna Karan’s villa

Donna Karan Turks and Caicos

In collaboration with Donna Karan herself, designer friends Enrico Bonetti and Dominic Kozerski teamed up with Singapore-based architect Cheong Yew Kuan to create DKNY’s homely Turks and Caicos complex of three villas and just as many pavilions for each.

All parts of the property, which sits beside homes owned by Keith Richards and Christy Brinkley, are open air, ensuring those who stay in the main house or accompanying guest villas lap up all the Caribbean breeze they can get.

Based on a private island owned by Como Hotels, fashion fans and luxury holiday makers alike rent out the abodes when Karan isn’t in Turks and Caicos.

With special touches including African arts pieces she collected on her travels, and items from her Urban Zen interiors brand, you won’t forget whose home you’re in any time soon.

Karan’s personality is evident throughout; from coffee table books featuring her face to Bali-style beds that serve as a reminder of her love for the Asian country.

As if that’s not enough a pavilion overlooking the beach was built from intricately carved stone shipped all the way from the island.

Perhaps the best thing about the duplexes are their vantage points which allow guests to see sunrise from one side and sunset on another. Rarely something you’d get from staying in a hotel room.
