Let’s face it – the life of a celebrity isn’t as glamorous as it seems. Paparazzi everywhere you go, fans following every move you make and the media picking up on the tiniest of your social faux pas.
But what if you could indulge in the brighter side of celebrity life? Think all-year-round sunshine, a luxury villa with your own pool, a personal chef looking after your culinary needs, access to a private beach area and a vast variety of lifestyle choices including golf, tennis, Elemis spa treatments and the gym. Add some Caribbean flavour and deduct the hefty price tag and you have arrived at Royal Westmoreland – the exclusive, 750-acre golf resort in Barbados.
Featuring a range of private villas, townhouses and apartments which are available for both home ownership and holiday rentals, Royal Westmoreland has recently introduced a fractional ownership scheme. This enables buyers to get a piece of the VIP lifestyle from just US$53,600*, which buys two weeks use per year of a four-bedroom Royal Palm Villa, with the first villa due for completion in September 2015.
Longer periods are available and the purchaser chooses their preferred season. Owners who are unable to visit the resort during the time period purchased are able to exchange their weeks through an internal exchange program, resulting in the benefit of year-round access to multiple size residences on the resort.
The elegant Royal Palm Villas come replete with a large private swimming pool, lush landscaping, sweeping terraces, and contemporary furnishings throughout. Also included is the luxury service standard enjoyed by rental guests with daily housekeeping, seven days a week concierge service, and the added benefits that come with Club Membership.
Kim Goddard, head of sales at Royal Westmoreland comments: “We often find that potential purchasers might have the means to buy full ownership but are constrained by the amount of holiday time they have to utilise their home at this point in time. So for them, fractional ownership is a savvy way of buying a home that is aligned to their expected usage, controlling their expectations when arriving for their annual holiday whilst allowing them to benefit from capital uplift in the property value when looking at justifying a full ownership purchase.”
The good news doesn’t stop there as owners can further exchange weeks at other exceptional resorts around the world through an affiliation established with Preferred Residences as well as a two year membership with Preferred Golf Club. This gives access to some of the most prestigious and challenging golf courses in the world such as the K Club in Ireland and the Cambridge Beach Resort & Spa in Bermuda.
