Villa Moon Reach is an opulent idyll; an enclave of lavish colonial style, traditional plantation style architecture and sleek contemporary comfort. This home blends the best of many worlds: seclusion within tropical gardens as well as a discreet on-hand staff presence for resort-level convenience; pool and coast on its very door-step, a taste of authentic Bajan life as well as every luxury imaginable.
The palatial facade offered by this majestic home is sublime; quintessential plantation symmetry along with Art Deco gable, decorative balustrades and coral pillars, full length veranda and balcony level are in keeping with the traditional aesthetic.
Refined and finessed with unapologetic grandeur, the interiors are a dazzling white coral, with mahogany framed arched windows and jalousie shutters and regally proportioned spaces characterised by high ceilings and sleek, marble and coral corridors.
The glamorous open-plan living space is a dignified space of long and lavish proportions, with a chic palette of creams, accents of gold, solid timber furnishings and antiques. With designer flair and flamboyant style, this space offers striking decorative touches; sumptuous fabrics, hand carved lattice work mahogany mirror, local artefacts along with European designers.
When it comes to dining, the options for dining spaces are flawlessly executed with charisma and verve; from the lavish dining room with oil paintings and hand-carved chairs, to the statement pavilion with avant-garde lighting feature, encircled by hallmark white pillars and surrounded by the sounds and scents of tropical plant life and the ocean.
The bedrooms are nothing short of move-star glamour, with gilded and decorative frames, mid-century cream dressers and mirrored tables, crisp cotton linen and abundant colonial charm, these rooms offer serene, restorative retreats. Each of the five bedrooms has an en-suite bathroom of sophisticated proportions, and leads directly onto either veranda or balcony space.
There is a gym and games room, full staff comforts and the details such as pineapple motif on the balustrades add that little twist of Caribbean charm!
Moon Reach is a decant choice; an indulgent home brimming with character and refinement, executed with swagger, for dazzling entertainment. Whether it be a rocking pool-party with rum cocktails, or a candle-lit dinner in the sedate grandeur of the dining room, or a post-swim breakfast on the pretty veranda, this home hits the right note every time, with grace and style.

Moon Reach is nestled in an area called ‘The Garden, in St James; it is ideally situated for nearby restaurants, golf and shopping, between Speightstown (2 miles) and Holetown/ Sandy Lane (3 miles), on the dazzling “platinum coast.”
This stretch of coast is an intriguing melting pot of superior luxe, high end spas, world-class golf resorts and star-studded restaurants as well as eclectic and historical local life.
Holetown will offer a slice of local Bajan life. The Chattel village is a melting pot of artisans, offering local crafts, art and jewellery. The Chattel houses provide a striking contrast to the colonial residences with their dazzling white coral facades and open verandas; the former are vividly coloured with fancy gables and gingerbread fretwork. The Chattel houses date back to plantation days; the small wooden shacks were designed to be movable, yet this didnt limit their decorative charm; finished in candy pinks and pistachio greens with pretty shutters and sloping roofs.
Speightstown, also known as “little Bristol,” offers evocative local life, fisherman casting their catch on the jetty, a distinctly nautical feel along with street vendors and eclectic dining options.
The islands capital, Bridgetown, is known for its British colonial architecture and historical sites blending with colourful shopping, an abundance of sea based activities and UNESCO world heritage status.
Water sports enthusiasts will be in their element, from sailing to snorkelling, jet-skiing to kite-surfing, Barbados has it all. One of the greatest delights of this island is boarding the sparkling waters for a catamaran cruise, along with a decadent buffet meal and drinks.
