Description from manager

"Welcome to Aliseo, Sandy Lane”

Said with a gracious smile, as I am led through the foyer of this magnificent villa on the island’s Platinum Coast. Italian in origin, the name "Aliseo” translates to mean "Tradewind” in English, and as its name suggests, this property is a breath of fresh air. 

This beautiful tropical villa, complete with 9 en suite bedrooms capable of sleeping up to 18 persons, is ideal for the perfect family vacation. Situated high atop the picturesque Sandy Lane Estate, the property is run like an exclusive boutique hotel, and maintains extremely high standards on par with its elite location. A testament to this, on my arrival I am greeted by the gracious and un-assuming Butler of the property. As is his duty to fulfill all requests by the patrons of Aliseo, all requests no matter how small are swiftly and efficiently dealt with, from organising a personal trainer to a yoga or pilates expert, or an in-house spa experience, encompassing the full spectrum of treatments, a cocktail party or customized island tour with picnic, the butler goes above and beyond to ensure the satisfaction of his guests; he does it all with an easy grace, his sweet manner making life at Aliseo just that extra bit special. 

On my personal guided tour of the property, I encounter some of the most delightfully furnished rooms I have ever been given the grace to see. Every room is out-fitted with air conditioning, beautiful panel ceiling fans, en-suite bathrooms, walk in wardrobes and flat screen TV’s. Every room is unique in its design and layout, the décor has a very English Baroque feel to it with heavy drapery and ornate rugs co-existing alongside beautifully made mahogany and oak pieces. You almost begin to feel as though you are residing in an old castle by the seaside. However, there are distinctive touches which highlight the nature of its tropical location.

The two-storey villa hones in on an old Bajan Plantation element that one cannot help but feel comfortable in; the upper level houses very tastefully designed bedrooms, all with arresting views of the manicured grounds. The "Bajan Suite” or Master Suite, has its own private terrace overlooking the stunning garden and swimming pool below. It is elegant and private with a beautiful 4 poster king size bed alongside gorgeous mahogany armoires and vanities, giving it that special old world Caribbean charm. The Ocean Suite and Monkey Suites are equipped with two twin beds fitted in crisp white linens and corresponding décor to match the themes suggested in the names, such as a monkey lamp and wall art, tropical fish dresser and light fixtures all with little jungle animal accents. These youthful artistic touches make these suites ideal for families with young children.

The suites on the lower level provide the very same luxurious furnishings with light crisp fabrics juxtaposed with heavy antique accents, providing a grand yet understated elegance. The Garden Suite is the only room which allows full access to the exquisite lawns and garden directly from the room itself, with beautiful doors opening onto the expansive poolside terrace. The open spaces and airy, feel is a compliment to this exceptional villa, as one wanders from room to room engaged in awe at the beautiful art adorning the walls. Every room has something beautiful to offer.

Luxurious décor aside, Aliseo is much more than just a pretty face. The staff here are dedicated to making your stay as comfortable and carefree as possible. A holiday at Aliseo can start with a VIP meet and greet at the airport where guests are whisked through immigration queues and escorted to air conditioned luxury vehicles that await to take guests to the villa, an elegant start to what would be a very stylish vacation. Apart from the delightful butler, Aliseo offers guests the services of a housekeeper, laundress and a top rated chef, who can prepare an intimate breakfast or a sumptuous feast for 18, a relaxed lunch by the pool, or a more formal 3 course dinner if required; your wish is his command and he caters to the individual needs of each client. All guests also have access through Sandy Lane to the beach facility where they are provided with sun beds and umbrellas. Guests are also entitled to use the hotel’s award winning golf course, restaurants and spa by reservation. The butler can also arrange for cocktail evenings or afternoon canapés for some in-house entertainment, or even perhaps a wedding or two….and I hear through the grapevine that his rum punch is a force to be reckoned with!

Aliseo is the perfect venue for a wedding reception, what an ideal place to start your journey together. The beautifully manicured grounds offer more than enough space and the tropical flora ensures an amazing backdrop for the exchanging of vows on that special day.
