Home to 280,000 residents, Barbados is that postcard-esque Caribbean nation with magnificent sunsets and idyllic beaches. It’s a blend of British colonial architecture and lively Caribbean culture, and it’s long been a popular choice for holiday-goers, and investors wishing to purchase their dream luxury vacation property. From both perspectives, Barbados scores top marks. The island provides an excellent return on experience and a historically sound return on investment. It’s also home to the resort community of Royal Westmoreland.

Royal Westmoreland is a world-renowned luxury development set in the heart of Barbados. The Royal Westmoreland experience is like no other, offering its guests the very best in terms of accommodation, facilities and service. For anyone looking for an ideal Barbados holiday, and/or a vacation home to hang your favourite beach towel, here are a few compelling reasons to cut through the noise and look at Royal Westmoreland.

The tiny island is spectacular

With a land mass stretching 14 miles east-to-west, and 21 miles north-to-south, nowhere in Barbados is ever too terribly far away. There are underground caverns, green hill-top vistas and beaches that satisfy surfers and families alike and a 10-minute traffic jam are as bad as it gets. That said, Royal Westmoreland is ideal among the already ideal, due to its conveniently central location. Bridgetown, the nation’s lively capital and commercial hub, is less than 9 miles away, while upscale and quieter Holetown is less than 3 miles from the resort community.

Barbados has so much to offer. Bridgetown is UNESCO World Heritage Site. There is a plethora of beautiful beaches, tropical rainforests, and breathtaking landscapes. There are fantastic sporting and cultural events, including the world-famous Grop Over Festival. There are legions of fabulous places to wine, dine, dance, and party, and a plethora of activities and attractions to visit. The island boasts interesting shipwrecks, and magnificent reefs, and is teeming with aquatic life to explore underneath it. Unsurprisingly, it’s also a  mecca for diving and snorkelling.

A resort’s reputation matters

Looking internally, Barbados’ west coast has a reputation within a reputation. It’s here where A-listers relax between shooting their next films and athletes unwind in their off-season. Royal Westmoreland provides a calm sanctuary for many looking to chill out in style and overlooks magnificent azure waters by dawn, and colourful sunsets by dusk. 

The community is just a short distance from affluent Holetown – home to the island’s most luxurious shops and services. A Royal Westmoreland property owner gets more than just a place to hang their towel, they get the prestige of possessing one of the island’s most in-demand addresses at a location that serves up the best the island has on offer.
