Barbados is an island in the Caribbean region of North America. Situated in the western area of the North Atlantic, it is known as the ultimate luxury destination. Simon Cowell, Philip Green (Arcadia Group) and Kate Moss all boast properties in Barbados and now the island can hold claim to the title of one of the most successful female pop stars, Rihanna. If this and many more reasons don’t tempt you enough, then let’s try Crane Resorts. Its fractional ownership offering at the Beach Houses at Culpepper is a perfect attraction for property investors. The Beach Houses are available for potential buyers to view and we were lucky enough to get a sneak peek on our most recent trip to Barbados.

The beach homes encompass 50 acres of land adjacent to a national park and provide a secluded location on the east side of the island, boasting unparalleled views of the Atlantic Ocean. Each offers a luxurious interior of pale porcelain tiles, limewood flooring and wide walls of glass to showcase the ocean views. Owners will also benefit from unlimited access to all of The Crane’s five-star facilities only a 10 minute drive away, including Zagat rated restaurants, pools, tennis courts, a gym, duty free retail shopping and a full service hotel concierge. The development provides both an exceptional holiday spot, as well as optimising financial return for its owners, offering profit from rentals and significant capital gain on resale.

In addition to the Beach Houses, The Crane  also introduced Private Residences back in 2015. When we landed at the Crane, our first call was cocktails and tapas in Bar 1887 followed by dinner later that evening at the Zen Restaurant hosted by Paul Doyle, owner and developer of The Crane and Beach Houses. Doyle is ambitious, focused and consistently looking at ways to improve what The Crane has on offer. He commented “We are delighted to announce two exciting residential developments at a time when the property market is picking up again in Barbados, which will offer our owners both optimal financial returns in terms of profit from rentals and significant capital gain on resale.  We are offering a real ‘home from home’, allowing owners of The Crane Private Residences to customise the ‘shells’ by applying their own finishing touches.  With Beach Houses, not only are we excited to create a luxurious beachside development but also an intimate residential community with a restaurant, pool, full-service spa and a grocery store.”

After dinner, we called it a night and met up the next morning (Sunday) for Gospel Breakfast at L’Azure . It was like the scene from Sister Act, just imagine Whoopi Goldberg and choir serenading you as you have some lovely Barbados style breakfast. Who said full English? There is that too. But when in Barbados it is better to indulge all the way. After a sumptuous breakfast, we took a tour of The Crane and Private Residences which also included the historic hotel (rooms dating from the 1890s). The rooms looked amazing with their original coral stone walls and mahogany floors. From ground floor residences boasting large private pools to penthouse residences with private roof decks that command sweeping coastal views, dining gazebos and pools, The Crane Private Residences are ideal for long-term living. Bright and expansive, each residence  features granite kitchen counter tops and natural stone bathrooms as well as underground parking from which residents can directly access their foyer via a private lift. Ownership at The Crane Private Residences starts from $617,000 (£472,882) to $1.3 million (£996,348).

Designed by the internal Crane Resorts architect team, the external design of Beach Houses has been consciously created around the harmony of the surrounding natural environment to blend seamlessly into the landscape.  Each offers a luxurious interior with wide walls of glass showcasing ocean views, opening out to an external dining and entertaining area.  These private patios feature infinity edge pools with hot tubs, outdoor showers, hammocks and barbecues for the ultimate luxury retreat.  Interconnecting doors and a removable lock-off across the pool of each home allow for flexibility in owning a one, two, three or four-bed property.  Fractional ownership starts from $160,000 (£122,627) for four weeks and from $1.9 million (£1.5 million) for full ownership.

The tour was followed by a hosted sunset catamaran cruise on Bolador from Bridgetown, the capital of the island. Perfect ! It was our last day on the island and to send us off in style, Mel Harding, Guest Relations Manager at The Crane took us on an island tour of the picturesque East Coast, St. Nicholas Abbey, and the West Coast. With fantastic beaches, exciting culture, tasty cuisine and amazing locals – buying a property in Barbados is certainly well worth the investment.

Crane Resorts is tempting owners to be with two exciting developments to be unveiled on the secluded east coast over the next 18 months, available to purchase either outright or with the resort’s fractional ownership scheme. Those keen to have a slice of Caribbean paradise to return to each year can choose The Crane Private Residences, a luxury gated residential community within the Crane Resort, or the Beach Houses, a development of 63 single storey studio to four bedroom beach homes overlooking the incredible natural beauty of Skeete’s Bay and Culpepper Island.

Mauritius or as the French will call it Maurice is an island steeped in tradition. Located in the Indian Ocean about 2000 kilometres off the south-East coast of the African continent. Translated, it is basically Africa at it’s finest…The island of Mauritius was visited during the middle ages by the Arabs, then by the Portuguese who named it Dina Arobi and Cirne, respectively. The island was uninhabited until the Dutch Republic established a colony in 1638, with the Dutch naming the island after Prince Maurice van Nassau. Those clever Dutch are not only known for their wacky cakes in Amsterdam… pause…. Because I think there was some wacky cake interference as the Dutch colony was abandoned in 1710, and five years later, the island became a French colony and was named Isle de France.

The French got very excited due to its strategic position and referred to Mauritius as the “star and key” of the Indian Ocean.Well, as you might or might not know, we covered Mauritius for the Luxury Show a few years ago and you can join millions of viewers to relive the experience on our VooVix channel here. So, we decided to go back for the second time to make sure Mauritius could live up to our first journey to the Island several years ago. Our team on this trip included the perfect cast, Joanna Blyth, Laura French,Deborah Cicurel and obviously I was on hand to teach the girls swimming lessons.

A few minutes drive from the airport, we found ourselves opening the gates to paradise as we swooned into the Heritage Le Telfair. This luxurious, ocean front golf resort is a 4-minute walk from the Heritage Golf Club, 9 km from La Vallée Des Couleurs Nature Park and 16 km from the vibrant sand dunes at Seven Coloured Earth. Airy, refined rooms have balconies or terraces with garden, river or sea views, along with free Wi-Fi, flat-screen TVs, and room service. Suites add butler service, sitting and dining areas, claw-foot tubs and 4-poster beds; some have outdoor showers. Breakfast and golf are free. There’s an outdoor pool, a gym and a spa, as well as 12 restaurants and bars. Diving and horse riding are offered; a kids’ club and babysitting services are available.

As we settled down for lunch at Le Palmier hosted by Guillaume Lefebure we were joined by Catriona Stewart who completed the team. With jokes flying from one side of the table to the other and the perfect sea breeze emanating from the nearby beach. We kept pinching ourselves wondering what we deserved to have such difficult jobs. Sipping cocktails by the beach to the sound of waves can only be described as a terribly challenging task for a Friday afternoon. I feel your empathy!

 

 

 

 

Later that evening, after some well needed rest, we all assembled together as the ‘Made in Mauritius’ cast and made our way to Le Château de Bel Ombre . We were welcomed by Jacques Charles – Chief Operations Officer of Heritage Resorts. Now, the ‘Château’ in ‘Le Château de Bel Ombre is not simply used as a ploy to create a nostalgic ambiance. The restaurant itself is a historic mansion with a dated past as a thriving sugar plantation. Apart from the interior décor, the traditional charm, and elegance of the building. The main ‘’pierce de resistance’ is off course, the delicious menu and in the words of Jacques Charles “Le Château de Bel Ombre relies on fresh, local ingredients and puts new spins on traditional Mauritian dishes”.

We retired back to the resort and despite myself and Laura French teaming up to encourage the Made in Mauritius cast to go out for a brief exploration of the Mauritius nightlife scene. Leader of the pack, Joanna Blyth took the sensible decision by offering us two options which made us choose the option she wanted in the first place. Reverse psychology at it’s best. Myself and French were left dumb founded wondering how she got us to agree and proceed to our villas like well behaved kids at a nursery. Blyth, you should be a politician – (move over Theresa May)… !

The next morning, we enjoyed wonderful breakfast at Annabella’s followed by a golf buggy drive to lunch at the Heritage Golf Club. The Heritage Golf Club is quite impressive to say the least and as a secret golf connoisseur like ‘moi’. I was excited to play the field a few years back and i was hoping for a repeat performance. The Heritage Golf Club, was designed by Peter Matkovich and opened for business in 2004.The golf complex which was designed by Peter Matkovich and opened in 2004, comprises an 18 hole championship golf course, a 9 hole Par 3 course, exceptional practice facilities, golf academy, clubhouse, restaurant and golf shop. With 5 teeing options on each hole, golfers of all levels are catered for. Now, I am no Tiger woods but with statistics like that, pulling off your ‘first tee’ is guaranteed to be a walk in the park. Unfortunately, due to the heavens shedding tears of joy to celebrate our happiness we had to abandon the pull cart for dry shelter at the Club house.

Wondering what our next plan of action was? Well, there was only one feasible option after spending the whole day playing hard to get with the rain. We were escorted to the Seven Colours Spa for a 90 mins Coco Spa Ritual. To put it quite simply, words can’t describe how relaxed we all felt after what seemed like an intense spiritual massage which was obviously geared towards cleansing your mind, body and soul.We concluded our evening with dinner at Anabellas.

The next morning, I chose to explore the surroundings and take a tour to meet the locals who make Mauritius one of the most sought after destinations in the world. The Island is a blend of cultures, with a mix of Indian, African, French and Chinese heritage. Later that evening we had an Aperitif and dinner at Gin’ja, hosted by Khurshid Vayid – Communication Executive. Khurshid Vayid is what I call the ‘game changer’.  She studied in London and is well versed on the London scene and she definitely knew where the party in Mauritius was taking place. She promised to introduce us to the real Made in Maurice cast (their version of Made in Chelsea….coming to a TV screen near you in the future). The first venue we  went to was ‘Big Willies’ which both Joanna and Laura found hilarious… I wonder why! I mean this is not a strange occurrence. Is it?? Perfectly normal. #OnlyinMauritius.

image-2

 

After a few drinks and watching an unknown British singer rock her adoring audience. We had paid our dues and moved on to the real after party at the Lakaz Cascavelle . All I can say is that the Mauritians certainly know how to party and the Brits were definitely giving them a run for their money. By, the time I was ready to bring out the killer moves from my memory collection of classic moves… I heard the famous last words…. Taxi…!!!

The most sensible word you can hear on a night out… The driver said, “you will thank me later” and the next morning I understood why.I got up to find myself in a very deep state of meditation… it was so deep that I missed the next activity of the day.image-1 The girls however, took one for the team and enjoyed the Sea Kart Experience organised by MTPA (Mauritius Tourism Authority). In hindsight, when I saw pictures of how much fun was had by my fellow cast members. I put this on my to do list for next time.

 

Later that evening we were joined again by Guillaume Lefebure for dinner at Zafarani . As we enjoyed, the good food, great conversation and candid moments. Guillaume found himself agreeing to join the cast of Made in Mauritius. His job, was to weekly relay to us how the week was going via Skype to our live studio in London. Call it fantasy, we call it reality and we are sticking to it! By the time we reached our last day, everyone was well and truly addicted to this Paradise Island and the thought of boarding a plane back to Blighty was not at the top of our agendas.

We strolled to the C Beach Club to join the Kite Surf training. Expert kite surfers the world over are well aware that the big surf and steady winds off the reef here make it one of the best spots on the planet to enjoy their sport. Alas, we were neither experts nor semi-professionals at the craft but we gave it a good go! As you do… We were later invited to play tennis with protective helmets… Tennis legends, Serena and Venus Williams apparently invented this style of playing tennis although I should say allegedly because for some reason I think this was a joke taken way out of proportion (Pause)…. We decided to press play and return back to the C Beach Club and we were right bang in the middle of a wedding taking place at the beach front. You could have felt the romance in the air from the bride, groom and attendees. It was like watching your own fly on the wall documentary of the best beach wedding with you literally being the fly on the beach.

As the pastor asked if anyone on this beach had any reason why this couple should not be engaged in holy matrimony. I felt like shouting…. “Me… yes… me, because this is a perfect location and we are jealous in a good way…obviously. Now, you can continue” but I let it play out in my mind because Love conquers all and there was no need to make the front pages of the local Mauritius Gazette especially on our last few hours on the island… On that note, we departed Heritage Le Telfair for a short drive to the airport feeling like, we had just left our loved one sipping cocktails in the middle of the Indian ocean. Yes, because when you come to Mauritius you wouldn’t want to leave this paradise island. As we got to the airport, a gentleman who worked for the airlines literally helped upgrade us to more leg room (not quite… first class but its the gesture that counts) as if we weren’t impressed with the people of Mauritius. This was the icing on the cake to what had been a mission in relaxation and self discovery! On a serious note, with a plethora of stunning beaches, diverse culture, exciting activities and rich cuisine. If you are reading this and you are thinking of your next adventure. I am sure at this stage one sentence should spring to your mind.. “Say no more” and my response is check our fact box below for the much needed recommendations.

The French Riviera has been a quintessential destination for the rich and famous for more than a century. Wealthy and aristocratic northern Europeans have been visiting the Cote d’Azur since the 1800s but the Riviera quickly gained popularity as a summer destination in the 1920s due to the likes of Ernest Hemingway, Pablo Picasso, and Scott and Zelda Fitzgerald. The beautiful landscape, warm climate, and easy access made it the prime location to host what has become the most prestigious annual film festival. The first Cannes Film Festival was held in 1946 and the Riviera’s romantic appeal has since captured the imagination of filmmakers around the world.

The French Riviera continues to appeal to the discerning travelers of today. The turquoise waters and sandy beaches, nearby mountains, the exquisite yachts, casinos, fabulous restaurants and entertainment provide the perfect setting for a travel destination. Rich in history and rooted in French culture, you can explore the glitz and glamour in the famous seaside towns of Monte-Carlo, Cannes, and St. Tropez as well as the old world charm of the medieval villages such as Eze, St. Paul de Vence, and Mougins. From an adventurous family vacation to a relaxing romantic getaway, the French Riviera sets the standard for beautiful living and captures the essence of “la joie de vivre.”

Whilst UK temperatures are plummeting, the island of Cyprus remains a sunny clime, from April through to November each year. With this in mind, and with flights just 4.5 hours from London, it is the perfect island escape for an early spring break, for those who want to get away from it all. In fact, almost one million Brits chose Cyprus for their summer holiday last year!

Luxury villa firm Akamas Villas has a portfolio of 40 luxury properties, in the remarkably unspoilt Akamas region of North West Cyprus. Home to calm beaches, turtles and a protected peninsula, the area is a natural paradise. When booking a villa here, you get to vacation in the midst of it all. I had the pleasure of visiting earlier this year, and got a true taste of the island…

Where to stay?

Akamas Villas has over 40 luxury villas in their 2014 portfolio. Prices start from just £75 per person, per week. This is to rent Argaka Beach Bungalow, however we stayed in the stunning Villa Charno — a beautiful five bedroom property, set in very spacious landscaped grounds. The villa is situated on the outskirts of the coastal village of Ayia Marina, a 30 minute drive from Paphos. Charno has magnificent sea views, open plan living areas, luxury en-suite facilities in all bedrooms and a glorious pool with outdoor Jacuzzi. Along with the usual meet and greet, founder Martin Maynard can even organise maids, cooks and masseurs – all to make sure you holiday like a king. The villa sleeps up to 10, and costs from just £175 per person, per week in 2014.

Where to eat?

There are plenty of great options for traditional Cypriot fare in this area, such as Moustakallis Tavern in Polis, or Molos on Latchi harbour. Faros in Latchi also offers a great grilled fish – and well-known restaurant host Asen will always be sure to bring a smile to guest’s faces, with his warmth and wit.

What to do?

We explored by jeep, with Akamas Jeep Safaris, who drove us across the Akamas Peninsula — visiting sites, such as Lara Bay, where Loggerhead Turtles annually lay their eggs. We also had an amazing boat trip with Crystal Marine, who skipper cruises for guests to see the Akamas Peninsula by sea. A must do. Hire the beautiful yacht Aditi for a half day with a hostess. See Yacht Charters Cyprus.

And if you really want to spoil yourself on your break(and why not?), Akamas Health Farm and Ayii Anargyri Natural Spa both offer unique treatments and a personal experience suite.

Villa Urbana, truly the best of what modern architecture, engineering and design has to offer. Sited to take maximal advantage of dramatic water-front views, the project was 3 years in the making and was finished in 2003. This grand 21,600 square foot residence is equally well suited as a spacious private residence, or as a truly elegant corporate headquarters that makes a design statement. Four expansive master suites, each with en suite bathrooms, could serve as office space if utilized as a corporate headquarters. Walls of glass overlooking the water, skylights and expansive 3 story ceilings with open foyer space between public rooms, affords great flexibility to use spaces such as the living, dining and family rooms as conference, banquet or ballrooms. These ample spaces are conveniently designed for large scale entertaining of hundreds of guests/clients but work equally well for a family, allowing one to escape without being cut off from the rest of the household. The expansive main kitchen is a sleek and modern gourmet chef’s delight. Other features include an indoor pool, mirrored gym, wet and dry saunas, wine cellar, fireplace, billiard room/library, home cinema, elevator, 6-car garage, security room, service floor, basement and additional storage rooms and expansive grounds.
