Overview

Pool Beach Nearby Ideal for Kids All Bedrooms En-Suite

Bohemia Villa is a majestic abode, set in sweeping, luscious grounds, overlooking the sparkling ocean from Cooper Hill, in the exclusive Sandy Lane enclave on the west coast. This home’s pristine façade is a dazzling white, with a regal feel: wonderful white pillared cloisters lead to the tropical gardens.

Bohemia Villa oozes bright, upbeat Caribbean ease and playful hints, as well as being infinitely elegant, along with artisanal touches and local raw materials. Sandy Lane is a prestigious spot, and this lavish, yet airy, home offers a peerless setting from which to enjoy the island.

Styled according to the Barbadian Plantation House, with its formal solid structures, wrap-around verandahs, plantation shutters and classical detailing, Bohemia also comes with a twist; vibrant colours, lavish ornamentation and unapologetic decadent style.

A large open-plan kitchen is accented with a vivid cobalt blue, granite work surfaces, state-of-the-art fittings and the hallmark dazzling white pillars, filled with natural day light. Whether it be a relaxed breakfast at the breakfast bar, post dinner drinks at the mahogany drinks bar or a sea-food lunch overlooking the vibrant gardens amid the sedate wicker seating and bright aqua and white padding, dining will be a delight.

A formal dining room with solid, glossy polished mahogany dining set is finished with gilded frames and an enchantingly regal feel, whilst the open plan living spaces are awe-inspiring in their sleek, lavish proportions, offering distinguished formality alongside playful contemporary touches; eclectic modern art, pool table and local artefacts.

Eight guests can be accommodated across five bedrooms; each of these has unique characterful flair, from the opulent “Versace” room to the room with pineapple carvings in the four poster beds, these spaces leave a smile on guest’s faces.

There is a wonderful, playful flamboyance to Bohemia. With the clue in the name, this is a home with a difference, daringly expressive and decadently grandiose, whilst the luscious outdoors boast both ocean views and an infinity pool. Italian big-name designers merge with local carved hand-made pieces, and striking art.

A glamorous home, Bohemia Villa will excite and inspire, perched on a dramatic spot with ocean views, it is an idyll of style, prestige and serenity.

Bohemia Villa is nestled in a premium position in the very exclusive West Coast of Barbados, also known as the “platinum coast” for its pristine beaches and turquoise waters. Despite this region being developed with high-end hotels and stately private residences to an international jet-set, its coast remains one of the most beautiful Barbados has to offer. With the recent development of extensive boardwalks, visitors can enjoy spectacular sunset strolls with the glittering sea as their companion.

The Sandy Lane Hotel is an iconic spot drawing a star-studded clientele, whilst Sandy Lane Beach in St James is one of the region’s finest beaches. Ideal for swimming, and snorkelling, tropical sea life and sea turtles can be spotted, whilst opportunities for kayaking and paddle boarding are abundant.

Bohemia Villa is ideally positioned, offering both tranquil seclusion as well as being within walking distance to the prestigious Sandy Lane Golf Course and the Limegrove Lifestyle Centre which comprises upscale boutiques, spas and fine dining.

In contrast, a visit to the historical Holetown will offer a taste of local flavour. The Chattel village has a more artisanal flavour, offering local crafts, art and jewellery. The Chattel houses offer a striking contrast to the colonial residences with their dazzling white coral facades and open verandas; the former are vividly coloured with fancy gables and gingerbread fretwork. The Chattel houses date back to plantation days; the small wooden shacks were designed to be movable, yet this didn’t limit their decorative charm; finished in candy pinks and pistachio greens with pretty shutters and sloping roofs.

Within close proximity to Bohemia, visitors can enjoy the fine culinary art at Tides Restaurant for something a little special, or Zaccios for informal pizza lunches with the kids. The west coast offers everything from rum cocktails at the bar to Thai cuisine or local Bajan fare. A culinary experience here takes influences from African, Caribbean, West Indian and European gastronomy for something a little unique. Known for its rum tradition, started circa 370 years ago, the island is brimming with tours of the world’s oldest rum.

Barbados is a place of contrasts, from movie-star hedonism to cane-cutting village life and artisanal fare; from fishing villages to dramatic, rugged Atlantic coastlines - visitors will enjoy a vivacious diversity within a very accessibly-sized island. A unique blend of vibrant, local life and colonial-influenced afternoon teas alongside cricket matches on the green!

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!

  • What a place

    Posted by Choi Party on 15/05/2018

    We'd highly recommend Bohemia Villa. Sandy Lane is the best estate we feel. We enjoyed the beach club & our boys used the tennis facilities. Bohemia is a beautiful mansion and the staff are very special.

  • So impressive!
