Villa Description

The luxurious Sandy Lane Hotel inspired the design of Illusion and the result was a breathtaking villa, which combines elegance with contemporary design in impressive style. As you walk through the large glass front doors you are greeted by an uninterrupted vista of the Caribbean Sea. The foyer spills out onto a covered terrace that overlooks the large swimming pool and dual staircases that lead down to the pool area. To the left of the covered terrace is the formal dining room and to the right is the master suite.

The dining room is spacious and cool with a large glass table that seats twelve persons. The room itself transforms into an alfresco dining area as three walls of folding glass doors open up to a wrap around balcony allowing you to dine amongst swaying mahogany trees and travelers palms. Right off the dining room is the well-outfitted kitchen. The kitchen has abundant space, easily accommodating two wine coolers, a number of stainless steel appliances and a dumb waiter designed to facilitate the hassle-free transfer of meals to the external dining area on the pool level.

On the lower level of Illusion is a tastefully designed living room with the solo purpose of being a comfortable place to relax. It is equipped with a large flat screen television with cable TV, DVD player, Bose surround speakers and a bar for your convenience. It is an open plan room, which leads through a number of arches onto the pool deck. The pool deck has numerous loungers, a barbecue and two gazebos both gazebos are outfitted with Bose surround sound system. One gazebo has a small outdoor kitchenette and the other gazebo has an informal dining area. The pool area is an ideal place to lounge, take cooling dips in the pool, listen to music, sip on cocktails and enjoy barbecue for lunch or dinner. Illusion is located in Sugar Hill Resort Community that offers a number of resort amenities including a Clubhouse, acclaimed restaurant, two resort swimming pools, and four championship tennis courts. Sugar Hill has had tennis stars such as Serena Williams and Caroline Wozniaki play on their courts. The resort is only a short 5-minute drive from its beach facility located at The Fairmont Royal Pavilion.

          The Jones Family - UK  June 2012

          Having stayed in many villas and hotels in Barbados, Illusion is most definately the best. We have spent six glorious weeks in this lovely home, being looked after by the amazing staff in five star luxury with five star service. The staff have tended to our every whim with such enthusiasm and always a lovely smile. Nothing was ever too much trouble. The chef - wow can this guy cook- we had the "Cliff" type meals every time - first holiday we have eaten in more times than we have eaten out. We have had many visitors during our stay and all were overwhelmed with teh service the staff provided. In our view, Illusion is truly paradise!
