What makes this villa unique

At the end of the day, it is not about the house (lovely as that is).

Much has to do with the amazing team work of Jasmin and Paul. Jasmin does a brilliant job with the housekeeping as well as assisting Paul,our chef. Paul has had many good reviews from our guests. He really knows his stuff !

Both of them have lovely personalities...a Godsend indeed

Notes on accommodation: Alila incorporates the best of Barbadian and Balinese design elements, with open plan living spaces and extensive use of hardwoods to give a natural, organic feel. "Alila" is Sanskrit for "surprise" and the instant reaction of most guests is that "the pictures don't do it justice". The house also benefits from a raised gazebo which is reached by a wooden bridge over the pool. this is a great location to have the staff serve breakfast or lunch. Outside: Alila sits in an acre and a quarter of landscaped grounds, lovingly tendered by our gardeners. At the rear of the garden is a deep gully in which you may spot a tribe of monkeys which travel through daily. One can most certainly enjoy the very many tropical birds flitting about in the garden. The private infinity pool is 55 ft by 19 ft! our pool man comes to clean it regularly. Utility Room: The utility room is equipped with the usual range of clothes washing and drying machines. Cleaning / Towels / Linen / Housekeeping: The housekeeper/laundress works 6 days a week and takes care of all household cleaning as well as domestic and guest laundry. All linen plus towels are provided and refreshed as needed. Other: The media room allows you to relax with a little music, a movie or cable tv. WiFi access and a range of books are available

Alila benefits from a beach cabana at the Sandy Lane Property Owners Beach Club which has private parking, a lounge area, showers and changing rooms. Free wifi. Snacks and drinks are also available. The facility is just 5 minutes by car. Phone the beach boys beforehand and they will have your sun loungers and umbrellas ready for you.

If you prefer to walk, it will take about 10 minutes to reach the nearest stretch of beach from the villa.


Barbados airport is to the South of the island, about 40 minutes away by car. We recommend hiring a car and picking it up from the airport, although a number of our guests have taken a taxi to the house and hired a car from there. We have an arrangement with a leading local car hire firm and should be able to arrange a 15% discount for you.


Alila is part of the exclusive Sandy Lane estate on the West Coast of Barbados. It is about 5 minutes by car from Holetown, the main centre on the West Coast, which has shops and a range of restaurants and bars. Bridgetown is about 20 minutes, the airport about 40 minutes.

Further Details:

We have house managers who will look after you when you are in Alila. They can help with excursions, activities and restaurant recommendations.

The villa is in the prestigious Sandy Lane Estate, in very close proximity to Sunset Crest and Holetown shops and restaurants.
