8 Reasons Royal Westmoreland is Barbados’ Most Prestigious Resort

Royal Westmoreland

Situated on the most beautiful and exclusive stretch of the Barbados west coast, Royal Westmoreland is a resort with a difference. With luxury accommodation, world-class facilities and the ultimate in personal service, our private estate offers everything a discerning guest would expect from a high-class holiday. Here’s why Royal Westmoreland is Barbados’ most prestigious resort.  

1. Luxury accommodation

Royal Westmoreland boasts some of the finest properties in the Caribbean. Our Royal Villas, for example, have up to seven bedrooms and feature spacious, comfortable living spaces with modern, designer kitchens, large outdoor terraces and dining areas, private pool and landscaped gardens. Like our luxury apartments, penthouses, townhouses and golf cottages, they are beautifully designed, finished to the highest specifications and fitted with all the modern conveniences a visitor would expect.  

2. Championship-class golf course

Golfing enthusiasts from around the world come to stay at Royal Westmoreland to enjoy the experience of our championship-class golf course. Designed by internationally renowned golf course architect, Robert Trent Jones Jr., our par 72, 7,045-yard course is a delight to play. Offering all the excitement and challenge you would expect, especially from the signature Par 3s, its immaculately presented fairways and greens, with their backdrop of lush tropical landscape and stunning ocean views, make it the perfect golfing location.  

Of course, our world-class facilities don’t start and end with the course. Royal Westmoreland also provides changing rooms, professional-led lessons, a pro shop, practice greens, a driving range, short game academy, club hire and buggy hire. There’s also our exquisite colonial-style Club House and, if you need a bit of refreshment along the way, our Halfway House is there for you to take a break.    

3. Idyllic location

Royal Westmoreland is situated in St James Parish, the island’s most enviable and prestigious address. This upmarket enclave boasts Barbados’ most fashionable restaurants, like the Fusion Rooftop, high-end shopping centres, like the Limegrove Lifestyle Centre, sumptuous spas, like the Singita Wellness Centre and paradise beaches, like Mullins Beach.    

Overlooking the west coast, the 750-acre Royal Westmorland estate offers stunning views of the Caribbean and the coastline. And with just 250 properties dotted about its beautifully kept landscape, there’s more than enough space to enjoy a truly private getaway. It’s the perfect setting to soak up the resort’s amazing scenery and enjoy its fabulous facilities.

4. First-class services

As a truly prestigious resort, Royal Westmoreland guests will find we offer first-class personal service. Indeed, it’s our forte. Throughout your stay, our friendly staff are here to make your time with us as comfortable and enjoyable as possible and we will go the extra mile to ensure your needs and wishes are catered for.

You’ll have your own housekeeper to clean and tidy your accommodation and take care of the little tasks; our well-connected concierge will book reservations and travel on your behalf and give you the best advice on where to go and how to get there; and our excellent chefs will even cook up your favourite meals to eat.

5. A private, gated community

To guarantee the privacy you expect and to ensure our outstanding amenities remain exclusively for the use of our residents and guests, Royal Westmoreland is a private, gated community with round the clock security to give you peace of mind.     

6. Sport and fitness facilities

Guests who enjoy sport and want to keep up with their fitness regimes will find their needs are well provided for at Royal Westmoreland. Besides our golf course, the estate has several floodlit, Har-Tru clay tennis courts and a fully equipped, state of the art gym, The Sanctuary, with salt-water swimming pool and jacuzzi. You can even have personal training sessions. And with 750 acres of picturesque greenery at your doorstep, there’s plenty of on-site jogging routes to explore.  

7. Fabulous food and drink

From laid back lunches to dressed up dinners, we ensure all your catering needs are well and truly catered for. With its colonial-style architecture and design, Royal Westmoreland Club House makes the ideal setting to enjoy everything from delicious homemade burgers to sumptuous sit-down meals. The Halfway House, meanwhile, is the place for snacks, sandwiches and coffees, as well as 9th hole refreshments for our golfers. For something more authentically Barbadian, there’s also the Rum Shak, which serves up traditional Bajan dishes and local drinks.

8. Private beach club

While there are no private beaches in Barbados, Royal Westmoreland does have its own private beach club on the very near and extremely beautiful Mullins Beach. With regular shuttles to and from the resort, Royal Westmoreland guests can enjoy a fabulous day at this charming location and take advantage of the beach club while they’re there.

Enjoy refreshing drinks to keep you cool, nip inside for a spot of light lunch or let our award-winning chef serve up exquisite three-course dinners on the terrace while you enjoy one of our unforgettable Caribbean sunsets. With a menu that includes freshly caught local fish, chicken roti, risottos, Italian dishes and sensational salads, there’s a culinary treat for everyone’s appetite. 

While you’re at Mullins Beach, you can also book a pampering session at the nearby Singita Wellness Centre. As a Royal Westmoreland guest, you’ll get exclusive packages for their amazing spa treatments.


Royal Westmoreland has everything you need to make a fabulous holiday. Our idyllic location, stunning accommodation, first-class facilities and dedicated personal service have made our private estate the most prestigious resort in Barbados. And with the rest of our beautiful island within easy reach, it makes it the perfect holiday destination.
