Have you ever wondered where Italian fashion icon and fashion designer Giorgio Armani gets his tan?

The 84-year old billionaire has been enjoying a private strip of paradise on the tropical island of Antigua since 2006, and now, you can rent it.

Located in Galley Bay Heights, along the west coast of Antigua, the development sees 25 luxury villas line the beach, two of which owned by Armani himself.

Here, the two villas combine to form a cliffside compound surrounded by the aquamarine hues of the ocean and tropical gardens.

Each property was designed by Italian architect Gianni Gamondi with Villa Flower holding six bedrooms while neighbouring Villa Serena sees a further five bedrooms.

The villas share the main pavilion which links each residence alongside a series of wooden decks, terraces and dining areas – maximising the use of outdoor space.

Each bedroom has its own ensuite bathroom as well as private access to the spacious outdoor patios overlooking the bay below.

The interiors – having undergone a recent renovation – see tones of beige and grey, styled by the Armani Casa interior design studio team, natrually utilising inhouse furnishings.

Each villa is privy to its own private pool, gym, outdoor jacuzzi and expansive outdoor terraces as well as exclusive beach access.

The villas also offer up the use of a catamaran with a captain to sail you to nearby islands alongside four permanents staff with the option for a private chef.

Properties can be rented individually or as an 11-bedroom luxury compound – starting at approx. $122,000 per week. Although with current local travel restriction, best to bookmark this one.

More pain is on the way for mortgage holders as the RBA commits to drawing down inflation

The cash rate now stands at 3.1 percent following the Reserve Bank of Australia’s decision today to rise it a further 25 basis points. The big four banks all predicted a rate rise, the eighth consecutive rise since April this year, as the RBA presses on in its battle to tackle inflation, which currently sits at 7.3 percent.

The rate tightening of 300 basis points, the largest since the early 2000s, appears to have softened spending through September, however, CoreLogic says it may be too early for a pause, with ABS business indicators data reflecting a 2.9 percent increase in wages and salaries, a growth rate not seen since 2007.

The latest increase may put a dampener on Christmas and summer holiday spending, adding another $75 a month to mortgages of $500,000. Those with mortgages of $1.5 million have seen their monthly repayments increase by $2500 since April.

Major bank forecasts expect cash rates to peak somewhere between 3.1 percent and 3.85 percent.

The RBA board will next meet in February 2023.
