Many larger groups are initially put off travelling together when they’re confronted with the high costs of additional hotel rooms, and all-inclusive plans that in their heart-of-hearts they know they won’t use. However, we recommend that families, friends and groups with a cause to celebrate should contemplate group villa rentals when planning their next adventure abroad.
Whether you’re searching for a sprawling beachfront villa, or a vast inland estate, groups wishing to travel together have a wealth of choice within the Caribbean. Once the initial costs are broken down between the party, and maximum occupancy is taken full advantage of, guests are always surprised over how affordable these exquisite retreats become (especially when compared to the equivalent accommodation at nearby hotels!).
Seven Benefits Of Group Villa Rentals
1. Reduced Cost Per Person
Economically speaking, villa holidays provide our guests with so much more for their money. Once you divide the villa rates up per person, per night, you are truly staggered by how affordable some of these spectacular properties are, so it really pays to bring a larger group! Our recent article on ‘10 Villas In The Caribbean You Never Thought You Could Afford‘, gives examples of beautiful villas across the Caribbean that once split per person at full occupancy prove extremely cost-efficient!
2. Ample Space and Privacy
Island hotels may appear roomier at first glance, but once you’re crammed in with 10,000 other guests, you may find that spending quality time as a larger group becomes near impossible. The ample space, private gardens and infinite pool areas found in luxury villas, allow each guest their own privacy to relax, as well as the opportunity to spend memorable moments as a group.
3. Perfect Settings To Reconnect
The stresses of normal, working life can sometimes prove an obstacle in spending quality time with your nearest and dearest. With cocktails in hand, Caribbean music floating through the air and something delicious on the grill, take the opportunity to reconnect with those you love in the picturesque setting of somewhere truly unique.
4. Private Villa Staff
The Caribbean boasts some of the most professional, friendly, caring and charming villa staff this side of the equator, who influence each and every one of our guests visits’ in the most positive way. Our recent article; ‘Our Guide To Private Villa Cooks‘ runs through the outstanding benefits of having a personal staff available to make your stay as relaxing as possible. Many of our larger villas include the services of Butlers, Executive Chefs and Maids, which takes the pressure off each individual, freeing up time for even more fun!
5. Exclusive Locations
Our large, luxury villa rentals are exclusive in the sense that they occupy some of the most sought-after island locations across the Caribbean. From our beachfront villas, to those set in their own private estate, the panoramic views and access to the best local hotspots ensure that guests experience the ‘real nature’ of their destination, all in the lap of luxury.
6. Unique Property Layouts
Guest cottages, chattel houses, bedroom wings, stand-alone suites and raised teak walkways are just some of the imaginative layout features found in the stunning architecture of luxury villas. Designed with the concept of ‘group living’ in mind, many of the large villas in our exclusive collections boast large communal spaces, plus pockets of privacy where couples or individuals can find their own tranquility.
