Banyan House, St James, Barbados.
Villa Banyan House may not be an impressive name for a luxury villa, but this little gem tucked along a swath of Barbados’ western coastal area is quite surprising and luxurious. It is a five-bedroom property in the St. James area and offers a short stroll to the beach. A gated property, it is quite impressive and elegant. It becomes even more so when visitors realize that their every need will be met by the complement of household staff. The team includes a chef, a housekeeping team, groundskeepers, and an on-call manager.
A single-story gem, it is tucked into a fully manicured and mature garden full of palms, planters and lush growth. The villa is a short stroll from its private pool area with an oversized cabana at one end and a bedroom cottage at the other. The cabana is a full-blown retreat with al fresco dining area, bar, and outdoor kitchen. The pool features an oversized sun deck furnished with lounges and relaxed seating. Heading back across the lawn to the house, guests will appreciate the views available from the oversized verandah that wraps the entire villa. Furnished in the same manner as an indoor space, it is a luxurious spot to while away the hours, day or night.
Just inside, the oversized rooms feature high, pickled wood ceilings in a creamy white hue, terrazzo tile floors in a similarly soothing shade, and décor that takes its cures from iconic island style. There is an entertainment space with a banquette sofa and separate lounge space, a formal dining room with a distinct al fresco feel thanks to its place near the verandah, and the enormous and well-appointed gourmet kitchen with stainless appliances and every possible bit of gear.
The five bedrooms are divided between the main house and the pool cottage. The master suite is in the main villa and includes a king bed, large and opulent private bath and private garden access. There are two additional suites, and both are queen-sized suites with garden access and private baths. The pool cottage features two suites, both with private baths and queen beds.
When seeking something entirely private and unique for a tropical getaway, the western coast of Barbados is a must, and the Villa Queens Fort 10 is an ideal setting. With its low-key looks and ultra-private location, it can be a perfect base for exploring the area or a retreat-like setting with premiere services and wonderful amenities.
