Leamington Pavillion in an opulent beachfront villa is set within 2 acres of lush, tropical gardens, providing an enchanting setting for families or groups looking for a unique Barbados Holiday.
Leamington's refined yet unassuming charm is reminiscent of its glamourous past when stars of the silver screen Greta Garbo and Claudette Colbert dined under the stars.
Upon entering the gates of Leamington, the sound of waves breaking gently on the white sands, combined with the pleasant sea breezes and intoxicating scent of tropical flowers, creates an atmosphere of serenity.
Designed by Oliver Messel, English stage designer and architect, Leamington is a fine example of his characteristic style, cleverly blending the interior and exterior living spaces to create an unspoiled setting for elegant island living and entertaining. Messel discovered Leamington when he stayed at the villa in the 1950s; he found it so enticing that he persuaded his friends Dru and Jack Heinz (of Heinz Foods) to purchase the estate. Mrs Heinz commissioned Messel to restore the Pavilion, and his trademark style transformed Leamington into one of the most remarkable properties on the island today.
Recently renovated and refurbished, Leamington's meticulous décor blends luxurious furnishings, noteworthy antiques and personalized touches to make the villa truly one of a kind. The villa is filled with European and Caribbean-inspired artwork, including paintings, sculptures and hand-painted furniture, as well as artisanal finishes such as sculpted cornices and coral stone archways.

While Leamington is replete with architectural and design interest, intrinsically it is a home. Recent guests described their first impressions: 'From the instant we arrived, we felt ensconced in luxury…everyone was totally hit by the 'Wow' factor of this beautiful house; it's absolutely stunning yet at the same time, calm and comfortable. You really couldn't ask for better.'
The main salon, located at the centre of the villa, opens onto a large covered terrace with casual dining and living areas, suitable for entertaining large groups and parties, yet cozy enough for a more intimate tête-à-tête. Dark wicker furniture, overstuffed white pillows and billowing curtains create a breezy atmosphere ideal for outdoor living, one of the most enticing features of a Caribbean holiday villa. There is also a separate formal dining room, decorated in the Rococo style, featuring classical statues in corner niches framed by shells and coral, surrounding a stunning marble dining table with an antiqued mirrored top. Flowering trellises adorn the entranceways, creating a romantic atmosphere ideal for candlelit dining on cool Caribbean nights.
Beyond the main terrace is the villa's classically shaped swimming pool, where crystal waters entice guests for early morning laps, midday dips to escape from the heat of the sun and evening soaks beneath the stars. Emerald green lawns flank the pool where chaise lounges await sunbathers, as well as two enchanting gazebos designed by famed local architect, Larry Warren. Painted in the trademark 'Messel Green', the gazebos are topped by two lifelike casts lead Barbadian Green Monkeys and feature Messel-inspired copper chandeliers, both created by Barbadian craftsman James Barrow. The dining gazebo is ideal for casual dining or afternoon tea, while the other features an oversized lounger, inviting chats with friends over a round of rum punches, catching up on the latest novel or sneaking in an afternoon nap. As one guest so aptly stated, Leamington is 'the perfect setting to do nothing; read, talk about things you never get 'round to, watch the sunset – and simply, chill.'
The beautifully landscaped grounds surrounding the pool feature lush, tropical gardens with hibiscus, bougainvillaea, orchids, ixoras and ornamental palms. The well-established trees provide natural privacy, ample shade and a relaxed atmosphere. Whimsical bronze statues, a lily pond and inviting nooks for a few quiet moments to read, meditate or simply listen to the waves, help complete the garden's charming allure.
The garden culminates with over 200 ft. of frontage to the Caribbean Sea, where immaculate white sands entice you to sink your toes in, and crystal blue waters hold treasures of a vibrant coral reef just a short swim from shore. Snorkelers can view stunning corals and tropical fish while cavorting with visiting turtles, a delight to all who visit Leamington. For those who prefer land-based activities, there is a beautiful lawn tennis court and small fitness room on-premises, and golf enthusiasts can play the Sandy Lane, Royal Westmoreland and Apes Hill courses, all within 20 minutes' drive.
Leamington's 4 air-conditioned bedrooms feature elegant décor, fine-quality linens, unique artwork and spacious yet intimate areas for relaxation. Each bedroom features a large, en-suite marble bathroom. Two of the guest rooms are located in one wing off the main salon, while a 3rd guest bedroom and the opulent master suite are located in another more recently built wing designed by Larry Warren. The master bedroom opens onto a sitting area with comfortable seating, a flat-screen television. The house is situated on tropical gardens with a beautiful swimming pool.
