Villa Blue is a delightful home, offering quintessential Plantation style architecture along with impeccably styled interiors - a luminescent and vibrant home finessed with flawless comfort levels.

The immaculate white façade showcases classic colonial style; symmetrical structure with Art Deco gable and lattice-work balustrades with pillared veranda and balconies. Entering Villa Blue, through the secure electric gates, is like entering an oasis of tropical greenery along with sublime serenity and style, where no detail is left under-thought.

With almost two acres of landscaped gardens, guests have ultimate seclusion, whilst being moments from the iconic Sandy Lane hotel. Mature trees in landscaped gardens nestle with vibrant, tropical plants and swaying palms, whilst the beautiful Japanese mosaic pool is a majestic sight when illuminated at night. The pool side is punctuated with elegant loungers and a pretty pergola, whilst the al fresco dining area is the ultimate chic spot for a leisurely lunch or refreshing post swim breakfast; decked out with characteristic wicker, and pastel aqua tones, indoor and outdoor living interplay seamlessly.

The main house comprises four double bedrooms, each with a state-of-the-art en-suite, whilst the self-contained cottage has a two further bedrooms, making this home ideal for families travelling together, couples wanting privacy or families with grandparents or au pair. The interiors of Villa Blue are a delightful blend of vivacious, breezy and upbeat style, against timeless proportions and contemporary verve. All the modern touches are in place: Apple television, Bose bluetooth speaker, air conditioning and security system, whilst Villa Blue has the feel of a genuine home. The kitchen is a sleek, contemporary affair of top range fittings, chic minimalism and stunning natural walnut timbers. At every turn, local island raw materials are in evidence: wicker, mahogany, marble and coral, offering an authentic tone to this sumptuous dwelling.

Villa Blue strikes the balance between luxury and low-key; it has an optimistic aura, the accents of turquoise, timeless style and design quirks add personal verve. Brimming with character, the open-plan living space features a wonderful cobalt blue theme, a funky starburst mirror and solid mahogany table with gorgeous upholstered chairs

For cocktail parties, long and leisurely lunches, or refreshing pool side breakfasts, there is the cool shade of the dining veranda, or the pretty pergola. Or, perhaps an afternoon tea with quintessential colonial flavour on the wicker banquettes. Villa Blue is a graceful haven of vivacious style and tropical seclusion, blending breezy Caribbean ease with designer finesse.

The villa is located on the Sandy Lane estate and includes beach access at the designated area for villa owners. The facility includes chaise lounges, umbrellas, snack bar, washrooms, showers, and some villas have a dedicated cabana. The beach is located on the left of the Sandy Lane Hotel Beach.

The villa faces west and overlooks the eighth hole of the famous Sandy Lane golf course. With access to tennis courts and gym facilities, Villa Blue is opposite the The Sandy Lane Hotel and has access to the Sandy Lane Property Owner’s Beach Facility.

This stretch of the West Coast of Barbados is 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, nearby, is an iconic spot drawing a star-studded clientele. The area is ideal for swimming, and snorkelling, tropical sea life and sea turtles can be spotted, whilst opportunities for kayaking and paddle boarding are abundant.

Villa Blue 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.

Within close proximity to Villa Blue, 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.

Holetown, a few kilometres further south, is brimming with local flavour and Bajan traditions, as well as duty free shopping and local commerce in the Chattel town.

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!

Barbados offers so much for family travellers. At only 21 miles by 14 miles, with 60 miles of pristine coastline, days at the beach as a family are the centre of a Bajan holiday.

From intriguing caves, to mystical gardens, from vibrant street-fare to formal polo matches - genteel cricket matches and colourful street crafts, Barbados offers a unique experience for youngsters which will captivate small imaginations for years to come.

Villa Blue offers proximity to some of the most child friendly beaches. Mullins Beach is a good option for kids with tranquil seas and long sandy stretches for sand-castle building whilst adults will enjoy rum punch from their rented parasols or older kids will indulge in water sports.

Barbados offers a mystical experience for youngsters; one of the island’s traditions of swimming horses at dawn will leave exquisite memories for kids to cherish, and wildlife from tortoises to parrots to brocket deer will intrigue youngsters.

For older kids, Bridgetown offers several tours of intriguing shipwrecks, tropical fish and coral formations. Or, a combination of 4x4 jeep tour through tropical forest followed by a leisurely catamaran trip for a full family day out, finished up with sumptuous buffet at the end of the day.

Whether it be enjoyed by sea or land, family holidays in Barbados, heightened by the impeccable comfort level at Villa Blue, will be set at a whole new standard!
