Only a privileged few get to experience the joy and pleasure of staying at Crystal Springs, one of the premier beachfront properties on the stunning Caribbean island of Barbados.
First built in the 1940s, the villa was then redesigned by Oliver Messel in the 1960s, with the current owners dutifully maintaining the theatrical ambiance. Guests have an attentive and highly-trained staff at their beck and call, all supervised by a villa manager.
A stay at Crystal Springs includes use of a luxurious 18ft speedboat, fully-equipped for waterskiing and other water activities (fuel costs are charged to guests). A 30ft Boston Whaler is also available to hire out at cost for cruising and deep sea fishing excursions. There is also a home theatre and mini-gym for your convenience at the property.
A great choice for multi-generational families, or groups of people looking for a spacious environment and ample outdoor activities and room to move about and relax – or to do something more adventurous is that is your preference! A highly personal level of service ensures you have everything you need to make it a rejuvenating experience.
Bringing the past and present together, and a great location for exotic weddings and special occasions, a stay here is sure to be a memorable one!
