10 Best Kept Secrets About Royal Westmoreland, Barbados
While Royal Westmoreland’s reputation as the most prestigious luxury resort in Barbados is known far and wide, not everyone has discovered our best-kept secrets. So, if you haven’t come across Royal Westmoreland before or only know a little about us, here are some facts you might find rather surprising.
- A private, gated estate
Royal Westmoreland provides exclusive amenities for our members, many of whom expect their privacy to be maintained while they spend time at their Barbados property. To guarantee this, our 750-acre estate is gated and discrete 24/7 security ensures members’ privacy and exclusive use of our resort.
- Some of the best views in Barbados
Barbados is blessed with fabulous views but non so glorious as those overlooking the stunning west coast and out to the Caribbean. The Royal Westmoreland is perched right on the west coast and, all across the resort, members can look out, enjoying not only the fantastic panoramas of the shoreline but, much closer, the lush tropical landscape of the actual estate.
- Private beach club with free shuttle service
While the private ownership of beaches is not permitted in Barbados, we have come up with the best alternative – our own, private beach club, a stone’s throw away from the resort on what is arguably Barbados’ most beautiful beach.
The Royal Westmoreland Beach Club, at Mullins Beach, is the perfect place to enjoy ice-cold refreshments and light lunches during the day and, in the evening, to sit on our waterfront terrace, enjoying stunning dinners cooked up by our award-winning chefs while watching the magnificent Caribbean sunset. Pure bliss.
- Barbados’ most connected concierge
There’s an awful lot to see and do in Barbados and our well-connected concierge staff have their fingers on the pulse. Want to find the best places to visit and when to go, need tickets, reservations or transport? Look no further. And if there is anything you need doing on the resort itself, we’re always there to help.
- Your own housekeeper
The whole point of spending time at your Barbados property is to get away from the everyday chores. At Royal Westmoreland, we make this easier than ever by providing you with your own housekeeper who’ll make sure your apartment or villa is spic and span so you can enjoy it even more.
- Personal chefs will make your favourite dishes
Just because your luxury Royal Westmoreland property comes with a designer kitchen, fully fitted out with top brand appliances, doesn’t mean you’ll always want to do the cooking. If you fancy a quiet night in and a night off, our concierge can arrange for our private chefs to cook your favourite dishes and deliver them, ready to eat, straight to your door. Room service, par excellence.
- Elite packages
Arrive in style with one of our Elite Packages. We know that long haul flights can take it out of you, so we have created our Elite Packages to help. Get fast-tracked through arrivals and met in person at the airport where your transport to Royal Westmoreland will be ready and waiting. On arrival at the resort, there will be a bottle of champers waiting for you, together with a welcome food pack to tuck into. In addition, you’ll also get a food & beverage credit to use across the resort and Beach Club and a resort golf buggy to get you around the estate.
- Exclusive pampering packages at Singita
We love great partnerships and we’ve teamed up with the stunning Singita Wellness Centre at Mullins beach to provide our members with exclusive pampering packages. Why not take advantage of the Jetlag package on arrival to soothe away those travelling aches? Or enjoy the sports, fitness, beauty or combo packages also on offer.
- World-class golf course and facilities
Whether you’re a golf enthusiast or taking your first swing, you won’t be able to resist the magnificent Royal Westmoreland Golf Course. Designed by internationally renowned Robert Trent Jones Jr., our championship-class 72 par course not only boasts beautiful fairways with stunning vistas beyond but some pretty tricky holes as well. Of course, everything else you’d expect is there too: a pro shop, club and buggy hire, practice ranges, changing rooms, clubhouse and even pro-tuition if you require it.
And if golf’s not your game, there’s floodlit tennis courts, a state-of-the-art gym and a saltwater pool for you to make use of, too.
- Fabulous places to eat and drink
While we’ve mentioned our exclusive Beach Club already, it’s not the only place to go for something to eat and drink on the resort. Our colonial-style Club House provides an opulent setting to enjoy quiet drinks, quick bites or more formal dining. For comfort food, snacks and light refreshments, there’s the Halfway House and for a more traditional Barbadian experience, check out the Rum Shak.
As you can see, there’s a lot more to Royal Westmoreland than you might have expected. If you are looking to buy a truly magnificent Barbados property and want all these secret benefits to come included, visit our Ownership page.
