Sandy Lane in Barbados is one of the most grandiose hotels in the Caribbean. Opened in 1961, it’s known for its see-and-beseen crowd, its Bentley house car, three famous golf courses, tennis, water sports, four restaurants and many bars, a 47,000-sq-ft spa and endless white-sand beach. Sandy Lane departs from the island’s traditional Bajan style with its grand, Palladian-style architecture, and is instantly recognizable for its signature pink hue. Stay in The Villa, an elegant five-bedroom private residence with its own gardens, staff, fully stocked bar, pool and Jacuzzi, large dining area and a courtyard. Impeccable service and warm, Bajan hospitality keep guests returning again and again. Experience it firsthand with The Villa’s full staff, which includes a private chef, butler, personal housekeeper and night security for those who are ultra-private.
