Casablanca, located within the prestigious Sandy Lane neighbourhood on the West Coast of Barbados, offers guests a luxurious island living experience few properties can match. The elegant seven-bedroom villa has been meticulously designed and decorated with a minimalist yet inviting style. Its crisp white décor, accented with resplendent punches of colour, dramatic artwork and artistic finishes, beautifully compliments the villa’s landscaped gardens and stunning views of the Sandy Lane Golf Course. The interior floor plan has been elegantly designed to provide an airy sense of living space; there are several charming sitting areas ideal for both small and large groups, as well as solitary repose.
The spacious, open plan kitchen features stainless steel appliances and modern cabinetry; the central island has two wine coolers and ample counter space for casual entertaining. Just off the kitchen is a cozy dining area ideal for a pre-tee time breakfast or an afternoon snack.
Further beyond, the expansive covered terrace features inviting living spaces for formal dining, entertaining or simply relaxing. The dining area, featuring a circular glass-topped table lit by a simple yet dramatic iron chandelier, overlooks the infinity edge pool, lined by pristine white chaise loungers and sun umbrellas. The terrace also houses one of the villa’s seating areas, replete with plush cushioned couches, crystal chandelier and artistic décor. A bar and dining gazebo further enhance the outdoor living space, making Casablanca an ideal villa for entertaining.
Three of the guest bedrooms are on the ground floor, where they share access to an open-air patio; an additional guest bedroom and the master suite are located on the first floor, accessed via a spiral staircase. Each bedroom is decorated in white with its own accent of bright colour. Floor to ceiling curtains, mirrored accents and beautiful artwork enhance the modern effect. The master suite features dramatic trey ceilings, a small sitting area with views of the pool and gardens, and a private patio overlooking the golf course. The suite also boasts an oversized walk-in closet and en suite bathroom with elegant grey and white marble tiling and chrome finishes throughout. A double sink vanity, rainshower and inviting white marble tub create a luxurious bath space.
The villa’s media room features comfortable seating, flat screen television with Apple TV, chess / checkers table as well as an expansive selection of books, providing an ideal alternative for rainy days or an escape from the midday sun. There is also an entertainment bar for easy access to cold drinks, snacks or cocktails.
The guest cottage houses two additional bedrooms, each with crisp white décor, pitched ceilings and floor to ceiling windows. Both bedrooms open on to the cottage’s private terrace, where guests can relax and enjoy the garden views. The en suite bathrooms feature marble tiling, chrome finishes and spacious rainshowers. A sitting area with flat-screen television and an equipped kitchen complete the cottage layout.
For active guests, Casablanca has a private gym with high-end exercise equipment and range of weights; the villa also has its own Astroturf tennis and paddle court; the only house on the island to offer the latter amenity. There is also one road-licensed solar powered golf buggy available for guests use at an additional cost of US$50 per day plus cost of insurance (this must be booked for the guests entire stay). Guests at Casablanca also have access to the Sandy Lane Beach Facility, with private cabana, lounge chairs and umbrellas, as well as the resort’s tennis courts and internationally renowned golf course.
