Barbados may be located just outside the Caribbean but this former British colony presents as the typical Caribbean destination! Beautiful azure blue waters, white sandy beaches, palm trees and more, make Westmoreland villas and apartments hugely popular and inviting, especially for those holidaymakers who like to rub shoulders with the rich and famous! Located within the Parish of Saint James in the west of Barbados, Westmoreland and the new Royal Westmoreland golf resort are a haven for the world’s elite and will appeal to couples and families alike.
For many visitors the main attraction with Westmoreland, and indeed the rest of Barbados, are the amazing beaches and waters which surround the island. Relaxing under the shade of a palm tree, enjoying snorkelling or scuba diving and other water sports are amongst the popular pastimes here. Of course there is also world-class golf available for members and rental guests at Royal Westmoreland. If you’re renting a Westmoreland villa or apartment here you can also use the spa and other facilities of this beautiful and exclusive resort.
Being situated in the parish of Saint James means holidaymakers renting a Westmoreland villa or apartment will have plenty of history to discover. Where the town of Holetown is now situated was the point at which the British first landed on Barbados in 1625. Attractions include the St James Parish Church. Further south the capital of Barbados, Bridgetown is a popular tourist spot with its colonial architecture, monuments and more.
With a climate categorised as moderate tropical, visitors to Westmoreland villas and apartments will find warm to hot weather all year round. There are two seasons here – wet and dry! The dry season is between December and May, making this the best time to rent some Westmoreland self catering accommodation. The wet season is from June to November, but because Barbados is located further east the island is usually outside of the hurricane zone.
Westmoreland villas are easy to get to from the island’s international airport, located a little way outside the capital, Bridgetown. Grantley Adams International Airport receives flights from many of the world’s major airlines including BWIA British West Indies Airways, British Airways and Virgin Atlantic who all offer direct flights. An assortment of other airlines also offer flights via the USA.
