Solandra is an idyllic holiday villa that is situated within an attractive landscaped garden. Graceful mahogany trees and indigenous plants and flowers make up the home’s surroundings. The villa is sat on top of a hill, a mile away from any noise, so provides a peaceful location to enjoy Barbados from.

Solandra’s open plan living and dining area boasts gorgeous high wooden ceilings and three large arched doors that lead out onto the gardens. The room is minimally decorated with vibrant bursts of colour and modern furniture.

The garden includes a large patio which has plenty of seating and tables, making it perfect for daytime and evening socialising. The patio is elegantly styled with striking artworks decorated onto tables and colourful sun loungers and chairs.

The kitchen at Solandra is spacious and contains windows that look out onto the garden. It boasts an island in the centre, which is ideal for preparing quick snacks and beverages for dinner parties.

The villa’s bedrooms open out onto the pool terrace. It’ll be easy to go for a morning swim in the glistening waters while holidaying here and the pool also comes equipped with sun loungers. The bedrooms benefit from striking prints and patterns as well as natural light and ceiling fans for comfort in the hot climate.

Solandra exudes luxury and there is no better example of this than in the villa’s spa-like bathrooms that are tastefully enhanced with marble floors and neutral colours. The master suite contains a chandelier in its en-suite bathroom that hangs over a Jacuzzi style bath tub. Make sure to spend some time pampering yourself here.

The garden has a plethora of space. Kids will love playing games and rolling around in the freshly cut lawn. There is also a huge beach cabana where guests can retreat to after long days spent out in the sunshine.

**Please note that as of January 2019 there will be Maintenance & Construction works near Solandra. Efforts will be made to minimalise disturbance to guests. Apologises for any inconvenience caused.**

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!
