Crystal Springs

The Garden, St. James, Barbados

Only an exclusive few are privileged to experience the pleasure afforded by a stay at Crystal Springs, one of Barbados' most spectacular beachfront estates.

Located on 1.7 acres, this charming home consists of 8 bedroom suites: 3 bedrooms in the main house, 2 in the adjoining annex (a 'bridge' spanning the natural water course that bisects the property) and 3 others in cottages on the grounds.

First constructed in the 1940s, Crystal Springs was redesigned by Oliver Messel in the 1960s and the current owners have faithfully maintained the characteristically theatrical ambiance.

Guests are looked after by a full staff, supervised by a villa manager, including a butler, cook, maids, laundress, night watchman and boatman.

Full rate rentals include the use of a speed boat equipped for waterskiing, a separate home theatre and mini-gym. A 30ft Boston Whaler is available at additional cost for cruising and deep sea fishing (rates on request).

Your holiday at Crystal Springs will bring the past and present together as a most rejuvenating experience!
