The Caribbean island of Barbados has long been a playground for the rich and famous. It is the perfect holiday destination especially in our Winter months. It’s not just the climate that makes Barbados so popular. Far from abandoning its British-influenced past, the island state’s 270,000 or so inhabitants have adopted elements of British culture into the West Indian way of life. Its national sport is cricket, while the island is still predominantly Protestant.
It’s this colonial “feel” that makes Barbados so unique.Barbados also attracts wealthy Brits who want to buy houses in the Caribbean. Simon Cowell for example, the X-factor judge, who already has a £5-million villa on the island has recently purchased a ten-acre site very near to the exclusive Sandy Lane Hotel. He reportedly wants to build a six bed-roomed villa with swimming pool and a helipad at a cost of £10 million.The Sandy Lane Golf Resort and Spa is one of the most expensive hotels on Barbados but you don’t have to spend a fortune to be able to have a holiday on Barbados.
For example a week self catering at the Pirates Inn cost from £639 per person whilst a week All Inclusive at the 4 star Sugar Cane Club costs from £1019 per person.
