Royal Westmoreland in the parish of St James, Barbados has long been a Caribbean hotspot, catering to celebrities, families, couples and other leisure guests looking for luxurious accommodations. Spread over 750 acres of sparkling Mullins Beach and clear ocean waters, guests with discerning tastes can stay in one of the five-star resort's three types of villas -- Celebrity (appropriately named for their ownership by celebrities), Premium or Royal -- with multiple bedrooms, upscale linens and views of the ocean and resort. Penthouse apartments are also available with pool and large balconies.
The Barbados resort wouldn't be complete without a standout golf offering -- Royal Westmoreland is home to a 7,045-yard Robert Trent Jones, Jr. layout, while another 18-hole course is planned for the property at the hand of brother/architect Rees Jones. After a round, relax in the beachside Indulgence Spa with one of the spa's luxe treatments. Royal Westmoreland also offers shopping, tennis, and a variety of dining options, including a Barbados tradition: the Rum Shak, where guests can sample Bajan Rum. It's spots like this that make a stay at Royal Westmoreland a trip that won't soon be forgotten.
