Sitting in a truly premium location along the west coast of Barbados, the Royal Westmoreland is a fabulous place to enjoy an unforgettable Caribbean holiday. With more than 750 acres, it is actually a residential community along with a world-class, championship golf course and many premiere amenities and facilities.
A Brief History
It may be difficult to believe as you gaze at some of the classic island bungalows and buildings that the Royal Westmoreland only dates to the mid-1990s. It was at that time that ground was broken on the first homes, and today there are more than 200 of them offering beauty, luxury and a wonderfully idyllic setting.
Designed as a golf, spa and beach resort, the Royal Westmoreland sits on the hill over looking the ocean and has won an array of awards over the course of many years. With everything from golf development awards and residential development recognition, it offers opportunities for holiday rentals as well as villa ownership.
Enjoy a Holiday
A wildly popular destination for luxury holidays, it extends an abundance of options where accommodations are concerned. Travellers can enjoy a stay in the Royal Apartments, one of the Royal Villas or one of the stunning Exclusive Villas. Each offers unlimited use of the world-class, private beach club as well as featuring some impressive amenities of their own.
As an example, many of the villas feature full-sized pools, private gardens, and multiple levels of living. Floor plans include great rooms, patios and terraces, and luxurious interiors that include laundry suites, ensuite baths, and high end entertainment systems.
Villa The Westerings, as an illustration, is a four-bedroom villa that has a private pool, butler, cook, media room, a barbecue area, large and private garden, daily housekeeping and complimentary access to Royal Westmoreland’s facilities and beach shuttle. Guests have a private golf buggy on hand, but the villa itself is quite remarkable. There is a large living room, a full office and study, a formal dining area, a large, gourmet kitchen with breakfast bar, and four bedrooms. These feature ensuite baths, premium bedding, and remarkable views.
There are Barbados villas with four and even seven bedrooms and apartments with one to three bedrooms. All come with the same generous services, and access to the resort’s many amenities.
Facilities and Services
Naturally, each of the villas or apartments will serve as a wonderful base, but there is much more to savour during a stay at the Royal Westmoreland. Though many arrive with simply unwinding by their private pool or at the beachfront as their sole objective, most find it difficult to resist the facilities and services.
There are round the clock concierge services for each visitor, a dedicated housekeeper, and even private chefs available to head to a villa or apartment and whip up three meals each day, snacks or special dishes. Of course, a holiday is not a holiday without great restaurants, and there are several cafes and food outlets for guests to enjoy. There are also spa services open to those who wish to enjoy them.
Activities also include the world class, par 72, 7,045-yard golf course designed by Robert Trent Jones, Jr. There are tennis courts, fitness centers and the beach club. Free shuttles to the beach along with a large and private pool near the waterfront add up to making the Royal Westmoreland a wonderful solution for almost any group or family.
With each property – from a one bedroom apartment to a private, seven-bedroom villa – full of luxuries and attentive services, the Royal Westmoreland is a wonderful find. With options for those interested in owning their own slice of Caribbean heaven, it might be the perfect choice for your next holiday.
