Your Guide to Sandy Lane Villas

Sandy Lane is one of the premier resorts on Barbados’s Platinum Coast thanks to its exquisite landscapes, stunning views, and world-famous golf courses. And with their rich architecture and 5-star service, Sandy Lane villas stand out as among the very best on this beautiful island.

Sandy Lane was first developed in 1961 as a country club by Irish businessmen Ronald Tree. Its reputation for luxury only grew over time, eventually coming to host royalty, dignitaries, and executives from around the world. By 1998, Sandy Lane was transformed into a world-class luxury resort.

Today, Sandy Lane villas are a great mix of modern amenities and classic luxury. They feature private pools, spacious living areas, and access to the resort’s facilities. They are also fully staffed and often include butler and chef service.

Renting a Sandy Lane villa is easy with Rental Escapes. First, choose your travel dates. Next, choose your party size. From there, your Rental Escapes villa specialist will be happy to present you with the best available Sandy Lane villas for your group. After, your concierge customizes your trip, including transportation, chef service, boat charters, excursions, and more.

Sandy Lane Villa Rentals

Impeccably appointed and exquisitely private, Sandy Lane villa rentals are some of the finest accommodations you can find in Barbados.

Villa rentals here come in a variety of sizes, from 12-bedroom estates to 3-bedroom bungalows. Architecture ranges from modernist to colonial, with a big focus on classic Caribbean styling.

Sandy Lane villas are also independently owned and operated, so they reflect the taste and heritage of their owners. The generations of care shine through in every detail.

Beachfront Sandy Lane Villas

Sandy Lane is home to some of the most pristine stretches of sand and sea on the Platinum Coast. Beachfront Sandy Lane villas let guests experience this beauty right at their doorstep in some of the resort’s most lavish homes. They include:

One Sandy Lane: Maybe the most luxurious property in Sandy Lane, if not all of Barbados, One Sandy Lane is a triumph of interior and exterior design. Marvel at the classical architecture as you step inside. Feel the rich textures of the coral stone walls and Italian marble floors. From the moment you walk in, One Sandy Lane delivers on the highest promises of luxury.

Landfall: Beachfront at over 12,000 square feet, Landfall offers a perfect mix of indoor and outdoor living on one of the best beaches in the Caribbean. It’s all punctuated by a delightful beach house style that evokes a true sense of place and character.

Heronetta: With direct private beach access and a two-minute private path to Sandy Lane Beach, Heronetta gives you the privacy to be as social or secluded as you want while still enjoying the beautiful Platinum Coast beach. Mature gardens, a private pool, a tennis court, and an experienced 5-star staff (including chef) round out this guest favourite.

Sandy Lane Estate Villas

An ideal destination for larger groups, Sandy Lane is perfect for celebrating special events like weddings and corporate retreats. Sandy Lane estate villas are designed to accommodate these large groups and offer each member their own uncompromising experience. They include:

Laughing Waters: Made up of a main house, a guest cottage, and a great house, Laughing Waters is a 12-bedroom estate that’s flexible enough to accommodate groups of all kinds. Little touches like a koi pond and soothing water features help set the ambiance. Amenities like a full gym and cinema room ensure no one gets bored. There’s even a kid's room and a treehouse dining area, making this a perfect stay for families.

Elsewhere: One of Sandy Lane’s most storied villas, Elsewhere is a great choice for up to 20 guests. It’s lovingly appointed and features lush gardens, a large pool area, and a full gym. Catch the monkeys playing in the trees, admire the artwork, or relax by the hanging gardens – there’s always something to do here.

Sanzaru: Combining the service and amenities of a hotel with the privacy of a villa, Sanzaru is an 11-bedroom stunner overlooking the Caribbean Sea. Enjoy private chef and butler service as you take in the views and dine al-fresco by the beach-style infinity pool. Relax in the cinema room in the evening or just marvel at the stars from your bedroom balcony. This is villa living at its finest.

Small Sandy Lane Villas

If you’re travelling with a smaller group, then you’ll probably want a villa with 5 bedrooms or less. Sandy Lane is home to numerous smaller villas that are perfect for families and groups of friends. They include:

Highlands at Sandy Lane: Sitting atop one of the most elevated locations within Sandy Lane, Highlands features one of the most exquisite gardens in the resort. Its elevated position also gives it the benefit of added privacy and cooling trade winds, as well as some jaw-dropping sunset views. A superb choice for up to 8 guests.

Evergreen: Impossibly lush, Evergreen is a treasure trove for art lovers, both inside and out. Inside, the villa features distinct art pieces, antiques, and relics. Outside, the gardens are works of art in and of themselves. And with a roof terrace equipped with a wet bar and dance floor, you have the perfect place to entertain and take it all in. Lovely.

Alila: A Balinese-inspired retreat, Alina is a unique, Zen-like villa that offers an unparalleled experience in Sandy Lane. Every detail, from the shak-shak trees to the water features and koi pond, has been designed for maximum relaxation. The whole package is punctuated by staff, including a private chef, equally committed to your serenity.
