Barbados Beckons with Five New $25 Million Beachside Villas

Between its location and its developers, Platinum Bay has it made. The west coast of Barbados, known as the Platinum Coast, has long been an idyllic escape for the well heeled. The tropical destination is distinguished by white-sand beaches; dense, verdant foliage; famously clear waters; and its resident billionaires, and the restaurants, stores, resorts, and golf courses they frequent.

London-based Residential Land, central London’s largest private landlord, is building five six-bedroom villas (priced from $25 million) on the Platinum Coast. Ocean panoramas and direct beach access come standard with the homes, built on wide lots to maximize their beach frontage. Bedrooms with sea views and solid timber floors flank the main living area with double-height ceilings. Floor-to-ceiling windows slide back to provide access to the living spaces around the backyard infinity-edge pool. The villas are wired for smart home technology and accommodate staff quarters in the south wing.

The unique amenities at Platinum Bay set it apart from other residential developments in Barbados. The estates share on-site security and a dedicated concierge team. Residents can reach the renowned spa and restaurants at Sandy Lane—one of Robb Report’s Top 100 Resorts—in just 10 minutes by foot. Also nearby at the upscale Limegrove Lifestyle Centre are shops from Louis Vuitton, Bulgari, Armani, Ralph Lauren, Cartier, and Vilebrequin. And a quick 10-minute drive to the renowned golf courses, the Green Monkey and Apes Hill, is also par for the course. (Inquiries: Ben Walford, 0044 (0)20 7647 7667; platinumbaybarbados.com)
