Alila occupies a prime position within the exclusive Sandy Lane Estate in St. James and is elegantly designed to offer an open-air and easy flow of living spaces. The distinct style being Balinese meets Barbados; there are fantastic sea views as well as wooded views across a lush, tropical gully paradise. From the moment you enter Alila, across a bridge over the Koi pond, you will experience the tranquility of this home. Casual, yet elegant interiors complemented by soaring ceilings of Guyanese hardwood, the dining and sitting rooms seem to be surrounded by water with the Koi pond on one side and the 56-foot swimming pool with surrounding terrace on the other. An elevated gazebo, over the swimming pool offers fabulous views. On the ground floor there are 3 en suite guest bedrooms, all opening either to the pool or the garden courtyard, a TV/media room as well as the professionally equipped kitchen. The indulgent master suite occupies the entire first floor and the sea views from here are stunning. From the kitchen a stairway leads down to extra storage, laundry room and staff room. There is room to add a cottage in the garden if required. A cabana at the private Sandy Lane Property Owners Beach facility (alongside Sandy Lane Hotel) is included where there is convenient parking and access to the stunning white sandy beach. Tennis courts and golf are available at the Sandy Lane Golf Club.
