Villa Melissa, Porters, Barbados. Imagine enjoying a quiet stroll along a palm-tree lined path to the white sands of a beach on Barbados. When booking a stay at the Villa Melissa, this is only one of the many amenities to enjoy. Located within seconds of the island’s Platinum Coast, in the popular Porters area, it provides direct and easy access to the beach, as well as all that is needed for an unforgettable holiday.
First and foremost is the fact that visitors enjoy the attentive service of a comprehensive house staff. This includes a private chef to prepare three meals a day, a butler to serve and host the group, a full team of housekeepers (including a laundress) and grounds team. They will meet visitors’ every need, and the rest of the time a guest is free to enjoy the long list of amenities. These include the beach so close by, but also the immense and private pool area with its stone terrace, array of lounges, and al fresco spaces.
There is an outdoor lounge, a dining pavilion and bar, and even some stylish hammocks to savor. The outdoor dining area is a full facility with kitchen, stylishly decorated bar area, banquette sofa and lounge, and the dining room. The villa itself also features a large number of outdoor spaces, and with the building’s use of native coral stone and pickled wood, each space is a visual treat.
There are spots perfect for drinks or tea, areas ideal for light meals, and interior spots perfect for hours curled up with a book or enjoying the company of family and friends. There are lounges and living rooms, a formal interior dining suite, and the enormous gourmet kitchen. A media room for movie nights is also a fun extra.
The bedrooms are divided between a main house and a cottage. Two suites are in the cottage (a king and a dual single), and three are in the main house (two kings and a queen). All feature private baths and luxury amenities, and all ensure that a stay in Villa Melissa is a relaxing and welcoming retreat.
