Naturally Luxurious


Encapsulating everything the sustainable Caribbean haven of Barbados has to offer is no mean feat. L-J Andrew discovers Apes Hill Barbados’ winning formula that’s achieving precisely that

Barbados’ beauty is boundless - a tropical paradise in the crystal-clear waters of the Caribbean Sea, bursting with vibrant scenery, a joyful vibe and warm, friendly people. Sitting 1,000 feet above sea level, Apes Hill Barbados Golf Resort and Community is at the pinnacle of this legendary island, not only in its physical location, but also in its concept, design and commitment to sustainability.

Set within the undulating topography of the Central Highlands and hugging the geologically unique Scotland District, with its laid-back, luxury lifestyle; sustainability lives at its core and permeates the entire community. ­

The resort is committed to providing the ultimate authentic Caribbean lifestyle to its members and guests. A commitment to the preservation of the island is reflected in many of the architectural designs and facilities. Key initiatives include; a reservoir that feeds a lake on the golf course, connected to a state-of-the-art irrigation system to minimise wasteful watering of the grounds. In fact, the entire resort is fully independent of Barbados’ water supply for the golf course and landscaping, achieved through harvesting rainwater collected in the property’s reservoir.

The grass used across the golf course and on-site amenities is drought-resistant, resulting in low water consumption. Woven around the golf course are thousands of fruit, palm, soursop and even coffee trees, with the aim to use as much local produce as possible to reduce food miles.

Accommodating the whole family, as a multi-generational resort, there’s a range of experiences for all ages. From hiking the 12.5 kilometres of gully trails, to games of Padel Tennis and croquet, friendships and deep bonds are formed all along the way.

At its heart, Apes Hill’s pride and joy is its 18-hole, par 72 Championship golf course which is complemented by state-of-the-art golf amenities featuring the latest technology. Here, all skill levels are welcome and can play together to enjoy a round of golf. ­

Those wanting to burn calories may do so with boot camps, Pilates and yoga sessions. ­ The floodlit tennis courts meanwhile, use Tiger Turf, a high-quality ecofriendly alternative to grass, ideal for a game of doubles. And should you want some time to yourself, swimming in the pool and relaxing on the spacious sun deck is a tempting prospect. From a slow day spent exploring nature trails to a family game of noughts and crosses at the beautifully curated Performance Centre, no two moments are ever the same. ­

The stunning collection of Apes Hill residences including 3- and 4-bedroom villas and offer magnificent golf sea views, blend seamlessly with the environment, highlighting that nature, innovation and technology reign supreme across the lush landscape. Potential buyers can choose from up to 20 different villa options, with bespoke finishings to suit individual needs including luxurious four-bed residences, sleek and modern bungalows with soothing westerly sea views overlooking the Par 3 9-hole course. A collection of two-storey three-bedroom open-plan homes with private pools and gardens also offer the perfect indoor-outdoor living space with unobstructed sea views and sliding glass doors which open on three sides.

Apes Hill delivers an unmatched adventure for the entire family and is a natural setting for an ultra-luxurious golf resort and residential community.
