Overview

Pool Resort Villa Modern Beach Nearby Ideal for Kids All Bedrooms En-Suite

Located on the scenic Royal Westmoreland Golf Course just north of Holetown, Ixora enjoys an enviable position on the western coast of Barbados. A secure, gated community, Royal Westmoreland’s excellent facilities are another advantage of staying at Ixora – it includes a spa, restaurant, fitness centre and beach, as well as great amenities for children.

Set in immaculate gardens, the villa is both relaxing and spacious. A covered terrace with a large dining area overlooks the beautiful pool, surrounded by sun loungers and tables and chairs with parasol shades. You can make the most of this space with a barbecue, or simply chill out with drinks in the covered seating area.Walk through the foyer and you come to the living room which opens onto the furnished terrace. This elegantly dressed space is decorated in neutral tones, adding to its light and airy feel, and offers lots of seating. Also looking out on the terrace is a large and inviting kitchen, complete with an island and a large oven and fridge freezer. There is also a graceful indoor dining area and peaceful study.

There are lots of options for sleeping with four bedrooms – three of these are just off the foyer and have an en-suite bathroom and air conditioning. The fourth bedroom has these too, but is located in a separate wing of the building – with its grand four-poster bed and walk-in wardrobe, there’s an element of French chic to the décor.

You will be in just the right place to enjoy the tranquillity of nearby Mullins Bay, home of Royal Westmoreland’s beach club, and a string of other fine beaches which lead you towards Holetown. It’s only around five minutes’ drive to the town’s excellent restaurants, shops and nightlife, and there’s plenty to do at the resort too – aside from a 72-par, 18-hole golf course, there are tennis courts, a kids’ club and a fitness centre, and the location is one of the finest you could imagine.

On the upscale west coast of Barbados, the Saint James parish is known with good reason as the island’s ‘platinum coast’. Aside from being a celebrity hangout, the area is famed for its beautiful white sand beaches, various golf courses and excellent dining options, as well as luxury brand shopping.

One of the area’s main towns, Holetown, is a good place to get acquainted with what Saint James has to offer. The Limegrove Lifestyle Centre brings shopping and entertainment together, with dozens of high-end stores, a multi-screen cinema and regular live events, from music concerts to art shows and craft fairs, while colourful Chattel village sets its shops in scenic tropical gardens.

The beachfront walks are another highlight, and particularly spectacular if you happen to be there at sunset. Eateries like Zaccios and Tides occupy some of the prime ocean-view locations, and with views like those, chances are you will want to try them out.

Holetown’s big annual event comes around each February – the Holetown Festival is a commemoration of the first settlement on the island in 1627. It’s a broad and lively celebration, encompassing everything from fashion shows and beauty contests to vintage car parades, sporting events and a Police Tattoo, and it’s a great opportunity to sample Bajan delights like macaroni pie and Barbados rum.

The town is also a centre for nightlife, concentrated mainly on Holetown’s First and Second Streets. Cool hangouts like the Red Door Lounge prove that Barbadians know how to party, and are very happy for you to join them. Head south of the town and a string of stunning beaches like Sandy Lane and Payne’s Bay await you, and it won’t be long until you find yourself in Bridgetown – the historic capital city is just 11km from Holetown.

About the Island & Getting There

About Barbados

At first glance you could be mistaken for thinking that Barbados is purely a beach holiday destination, but you're urged to reconsider this common belief. The island of Barbados is peppered with astonishing landscapes (both coastal and inland), enchanting locals, sublime cuisine, intriguing rums, fascinating wildlife, symbolic architecture and a selection of striking holiday villas.

Delve deep into the history of the island and start your holiday by visiting Sunbury Plantation House & Museum. This former plantation was built in 1660's and the premises are scattered with antiquities that delicately detail a recent history of Barbados. St. Nicholas Abbey also provides an insightful representation of Sugarcane production, Bajan artefacts and a wonderful observation point at Cherry Tree Hill. If you’re keen to visit one of the oldest Parliamentary buildings within the Commonwealth and appreciate the democratic legacy of Barbados, drop by The Parliament Buildings. This neo-gothic congress can be found in Bridgetown and act as a representation of Barbados’s Independence. There is so much history present throughout the island and as a result, Bridgetown and its Garrison has been declared a UNESCO World Heritage site, which the locals are very proud of.

Great efforts have been made to persevere the natural beauty of Barbados, so if you’re drawn to the exploration of National Parks and multicoloured gardens, it won’t take you long to realise that Barbados is a haven for such paradises! Within the Andromeda Botanic Gardens, Farley Hill National Park, Flower Forest, Hunte's Gardens and Welchman Hall Gully - visitors, and Botanist alike, will be lost for hours admiring these astonishing botanical parklands. Keep an eye out for the Dwarf Poinciana, or Peacock Flower…it’s the national flower of Barbados.

Bajan’s take their food very seriously! If you and your fellow travellers are enticed by the gastronomic aspect of holidaying, we believe you’ve selected the right island. With every aspect of cookery mastered; from pickling to freshly prepared dishes, sweet & savoury, fragrant & spicy and of course, the bountiful choice of seafood. Check out the food stalls in Paynes Bay Church – where vendors exhibit locally made dishes & street food that will scintillate the taste buds. At the end of every working week, locals and tourists both flock to Oistins, for 'Fish Fry Day'. This is a must for those who haven’t undergone the experience! The evening starts with barbecues and then ascends into a joyful party. This caps off a busy few days of work for locals as well as the 'strains' associated with serious holidaying.

Barbados is of course iconic for its Beaches & Rum…so why not bring them together? You will have to go out of your way not to be able to find a beach bar along the west coast of the island, as well as the countless Rum Shops. Yes, you’ve read correctly, Rum Shops! These small and locally run businesses embrace the Bajan spice of life, in liquid form. Very delicious! If you’re searching for something a little more special, take a trip to the east coast and visit Sand Dunes Bar and Restaurant at Windy Hill, for an unforgettable experience.

Barbados is a distinct and striking part of the Caribbean. It’s a great fit for all types of travellers, as the island really does have it all. For a little more information about this delightful island, check out our guide to a remarkable stay!

This beautiful villa is ideal for a family holiday on Barbados, and Barbados is ideal for a family holiday. There’s a whole lot of things to do on the west coast, and as the island is only 21 x 14 miles in total, nowhere on Barbados is really out of bounds.

Starting off in nearby Holetown, you have some of Barbados’ most upscale shopping at Limegrove and Chattel Village, and even if you don’t buy, it’s definitely fun to browse. The town also has one of the island’s few movie theatres, a great place for a family night out. They are bound to love discovering the Bajan cuisine, and the food doesn’t stop at Caribbean, with a host of international flavours on offer in Holetown and beyond.

Barbados is geared up for family visits, and its attractions are too. Among the best are the submarine trips you can take in Bridgetown, not too far south of Holetown, and the incredible Harrison’s Cave – a true natural wonder accessible via tram. For animal lovers, there’s the monkeys at Welchman Hall Gully, and the cute Maras at the Barbados Wildlife Reserve (rather like a cross between a kangaroo and a guinea pig).

Perhaps one of the island’s most iconic attractions is Oistins Fish Fry down on the south coast, a bit of a drive (in Barbados terms, anyway) but definitely worth the trip for the fabulous fish and the chilled-out vibes. Kids and adults alike can dance the night away to live reggae music, so get working on those moves.
