The Luxury Resort Life in Barbados

Barbados is a vibrant, happening place.  A bit flatter in terrain than some of the other islands. Our tour guides were quick to tell us about the famous people who used to, or currently own properties along the platinum coast. In the Platinum Coast area of Barbados, you can also find high end retailers like Cartier. Business Barbados

We visited two Luxury residence properties. Both properties are developed by UNNA, and have on site rental management. Both properties also have fist class amenities including on site restaurants, spa, water sports, pools, and water sports.

St. Peter’s Bay

St. Peter’s Bay is a Luxury resort and residences. The price list of select homes ranged from a ground floor 2700 sf unfurnished three bedroom unit at $1,585,000, to a furnished 6300 sf five bedroom penthouse at $5,995,000.

This property complex is located on a beautiful beach.St. Peters Bay 1

St. Peters Bay would be a wonderful place for a vacation. There is a water taxi that links this property to the next stop in our real estate tour, Port Ferdinand.

Port Ferdinand

Port Ferdinand is a marina and Luxury residences. The marina is man made, but has abundant charm and character with all the amenities.Port Ferdinand marina 1

Port Ferdinand is also close to the beach. Nikki Beach, a luxury beach club, is located at the mouth of the marina.Port Ferdinand marina 2

Each unit comes with a boat slip, and I was told that the boat slip could be rented separately from the unit. The development has 4 levels, and unit prices ranged from $2,250,000 to $7,750,000.

I really liked the marina living. I could spend hours relaxing on the balcony and watching the boats come and go.Port Ferdinand marina 3

In Barbados, you can become a tax resident with a $2 million property investment. The benefit of tax residency, is the 2.5% income tax.

Bonus point: Barbados is located most east in the Caribbean.  Most hurricanes form west of Barbados, so very low chance of a destructive storm.

Several people in our tour had spent many vacations in Barbados. This speaks well of the island, and so I’m looking forward to planning a trip to investigate more.Barbados shipping port
