A remarkable beachfront property, sleeping up to 8 guests, close to the crystal blue waves of the Caribbean Sea.

Annatto Estate is comprised of Annatto Pavilion and Annatto Lodge, together creating a 4 bedroom retreat which effortlessly blends elegance with luxury.

The property’s striking exterior separates the main salon with the various terraces using grand pillars and arches. There are also 2 acres of established gardens, teeming with hibiscus, bougainvillea, orchids, and ixoras, that surrounds the entire estate.  Upon entering the villa, you will see the main salon, an open-plan area filled with antique furnishings. The main living area uses a circular seating arrangement, perfect for family movie nights and creating lifelong memories. Beyond this salon is a luscious terrace that is equipped with both a seating and dining area, making it a marvellous place for socialising whilst gazing out towards the ocean waves. Additionally, this terrace leads out to your very own swimming pool, suitable for cooling off after a long day under the Bajan sun.

The main house at Annatto is the true jewel in the estate’s crown as it is home to both the master bedroom and two guest rooms. The master bedroom is fitted with high-quality linens, a large flatscreen TV, and a spacious en-suite bathroom. This room also opens up to an additional seating area, which is ideal for capturing the sunrise over the peaceful Caribbean waves. Moving into the two guest bedrooms, each room contains beautiful, canopied beds and personal en-suite bathrooms. These rooms are decorated with royal blue and gold furnishings, giving you an immaculate night’s sleep.

The property’s fourth bedroom is located in the one-bedroom lodge found on the shores of the estate. This quaint addition to the property also has access to a plunge pool, giving guests a more intimate and private experience. Overall, this property pulls upon some of the world’s best designers and collates them together to create this pristine villa.

The Annatto Estate offers all you could need and more with access to two pools, a lawn tennis court, and a fully-equipped fitness suite.  These amenities ensure that guests are free to act at their own leisure and allow them to pick and choose how they wish to spend their days. During your stay, you also have the pleasure of meeting Annatto’s incredible housekeeping staff. There is a butler, chef, multiple housekeepers, laundress, gardener, night guard, and dedicated property manager. The estate’s kind and compassionate staff are there to keep all operations running smoothly and make sure that guests do not have to ask for anything.

Annatto Estate is located within walking distance of the seafront, giving you the once-in-a-lifetime opportunity to partake in activities like snorkelling and watersports. This also means that you are close to the glorious white sands of the beach, allowing you to seep deep into the sand and let your troubles fade away.

This villa can make you feel completely detached from life’s hustle and bustle but is also close to both Speightstown and Holetown, a pair of historic areas within Barbados. Speightstown, also known as Little Bristol, is the second-largest city centre of Barbados. This area is perfect for colonial history lovers as Speightstown was the first town that was able to conduct secret trade operations with Bristol, England. Nowadays, the town is best known for its charming atmosphere and local shopping district.

Holetown is considered to be one of Barbados’s most significant assets due to its vibrant nightlife. It is best recognised for its abundance of bars, restaurants, and nightclubs, all of which maintain a high standard of service.  The concierge staff at Leamington Estate can assist you in making reservations and dining plans at a number of locations, helping to make your island getaway completely stress-free.

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!

Reviews

  • Wonderful

    on 16/11/2018

    I stayed at the wonderful, magical Annatto Estate in October/November 2018. My family and I found it delightful in every way. The house has been put together over time with such taste and attention to detail that it offers every comfort imaginable whilst retaining the original classical charm of the designer, Oliver Messel. Annatto Estate provided an army of staff to cater to our every whim and had a truly world class chef who could rival any restaurant on the island. The house was totally enclosed in two acres of heavenly gardens which led to the beach and there was a wide secluded swimming beach 2 minutes walk away. Unspoilt Speightstown was a gentle 15 minutes stroll and we enjoyed the old world charm and morning markets. I have been to Barbados many times but staying at Annatto Estate made for the most enjoyable and relaxing stay I have experienced. When it came time to pack my bags I did not want to leave!

  • Incredible fondness and joy!
