You won’t believe your eyes when you walk into this luxury villa in Barbados, but it’s truly no illusion. Elegant, contemporary and ultra-stylish, Villa Iresine is a beautiful property with wonderful facilities and a relaxing vibe that guarantees the ‘aaaaaah’ factor.
Villa Iresine has an impressive entrance, with its marble-floored, pillared vestibule, complete with a piano and a view out over the pool terrace to the sea. Your gaze is drawn down to the spectacular view, through the supremely comfortable living room, which has been thoughtfully designed with armchairs you just sink into. This is the ideal space in which to watch the golf or a spot of tennis when you’re not out there yourself.
The cool and airy dining room has doors that disappear on three sides, creating a wonderful indoor/outdoor space with great views. From the main living space, two staircases sweep down to the pool terrace, where there are luxury loungers, a barbecue and two gazebos – one with a kitchen and another with a dining area, both kitted out with Bose surround sound. The pool terrace is the ideal spot for a sunny celebration. Wandering around the landscaped gardens you’ll find bananas, papayas and coconuts growing, and there are is even a putting green, too.
But there are fabulous shared facilities just moments away from your luxury villa, as guests also have access to the Sugar Hill resort, with its beach, restaurant, clubhouse and lovely pools and tennis courts – Serena Williams herself is occasionally spotted knocking a few balls about here. Keen golfers will be pleased to be able to stroll over to the Royal Westmoreland course next door, too. You’ll be truly spoilt for choice.
