Barbados…it’s one of my favourite destinations and an island that I’ve been lucky enough to visit often during my career with ITC, so much so that it now feels like something of a home from home, albeit a very warm and stunningly beautiful home!
The Barbados beauty that most people think of first and foremost is, of course, the long stretches of soft, inviting sands and sparkling turquoise waters that make up the island’s west coast. There surely isn’t another stretch of beachfront in the world that promises so much, and delivers it too, with those natural gifts added to in the shape of a stunning array of top class hotels, offering you every possible variety of Caribbean hospitality, international flair and luxurious surrounds. It’s little wonder that it’s earned the sobriquet of the ‘Platinum Coast’.
For the ultimate in home away from home experiences, staying at a villa has to be the best option for groups and those looking for total tranquillity and pampering. One of the most superlative villas on the island in my opinion is The Dream. It’s simply spectacular, with its open plan interiors bathed with Caribbean sun and mesmerising vistas of the sea. Its name is truly apt.
This contemporary beachfront villa blends home comforts with cutting-edge design and modern amenities along with five luxurious bedrooms, including the vast Master Suite. With the main living area being open-plan and continuing out to the pool area, cool ocean breezes waft through the whole house; making it perfect for gatherings or just lovely lazy days by the pool. Its location is equally superb in the exclusive ‘Garden’ neighbourhood of St James on the west coast.
With beachfront access and attentive staff, The Dream has all the ingredients for a fabulous holiday!
