Illusion is a custom built private villa rental nestled in the gated resort community of the very popular Sugar Hill Resort. Sugar Hill is located inland slightly north of Holetown on the West Coast of Barbados, and famed for the West Coast beaches, excellent shopping and renowned restaurants.

The luxurious Sandy Lane Hotel inspired the design of Illusion and the result was a breathtaking villa, which combines elegance with contemporary design in impressive style. As you walk through the large glass front doors you are greeted by an uninterrupted vista of the Caribbean Sea. The foyer spills out onto a covered terrace that overlooks the large swimming pool and dual staircases that lead down to the pool area. To the left of the covered terrace is the formal dining room and to the right is the master suite.

The dining room is spacious and cool with a large glass table that seats twelve persons. The room itself transforms into an alfresco dining area as three walls of folding glass doors open up to a wrap around balcony allowing you to dine amongst swaying mahogany trees and travelers palms. Right off the dining room is the well-outfitted kitchen. The kitchen has abundant space, easily accommodating two wine coolers, a number of stainless steel appliances and a dumb waiter designed to facilitate the hassle-free transfer of meals to the external dining area on the pool level.

On the lower level of Illusion is a tastefully designed living room with the solo purpose of being a comfortable place to relax. It is equipped with a large flat screen television with cable TV, DVD player, Bose surround speakers and a bar for your convenience. It is an open plan room, which leads through a number of arches onto the pool deck. The pool deck has numerous loungers, a barbecue and two gazebos - both gazebos are outfitted with Bose surround sound system. One gazebo has a small outdoor kitchenette and the other gazebo has an informal dining area. The pool area is an ideal place to lounge, take cooling dips in the pool, listen to music, sip on cocktails and enjoy barbecue for lunch or dinner.

All of the bedroom suites are air-conditioned, have private covered terraces, en suite bathrooms and a security safe. The bedroom suites are equally proportioned with the majority located on the ground floor of Illusion. The master suite is on the first floor and features a second living room, a large flat screen television with cable TV, DVD player and Bose surround speakers. The master suite also has a large walk-in closet and an en suite bathroom that includes a tub and separate shower. The king size bed allows you to lounge in bed and have a view of the sea.

Illusion is located in Sugar Hill Resort Community that offers a number of resort amenities including a Clubhouse, acclaimed restaurant, two resort swimming pools, and four championship tennis courts. Sugar Hill has had tennis stars such as Serena Williams and Caroline Wozniaki play on their courts. The resort is only a short 5-minute drive from its beach facility located at The Fairmont Royal Pavilion.

Sugar Hill - Illusion Reviews from our Visitors
The Packer Family

Our concierge was very friendly and highly capable - excellent! We loved the amenities and the staff at the villa - it was total heavenly paradise!

The Wilkinson Family

We have had a fabulous three week stay here. We have been visiting Barbados for over 30 years and this house has been exceptional. Our family and friends were so happy and comfortable.

The staff have been very attentive. Judy keeps the place spotless and is fun to chat with. Our Butler Ian and Chef Mark definitely put in so much effort. We cancelled a few of our dinner reservations because the food was far superior and it was so nice to entertain our friends who live/stay on the island.

We do hope to return to Illusion in the future.

The Huntingford Party

Frederick, Shanelle Chef, Judy, Shanelle, Linford and Celia were all exceptional. Delicious food, wonderful rum punches and immaculate house and garden. Huge thanks to everyone xx. Leigh-Ann was also a wonderful host.

The Walker Party

Fantastic stay in a wonderful house with great staff and fantastic food. What's more to stay!

The Atkinson Family

The service was exceptional from the moment we arrived to when we left. We always felt comfortable and were made to feel at home. A big thank you to Willis, Keith and the maids. They were a credit to this property!

The Cole Family

Overall extremely happy with everything. The villa is amazing but the staff are even better. Heather's cooking is simply the best ever and Grantley is truly wonderful. Everybody has made the holiday so easy for us and I would have no hesitation in recommending Blue Sky and the villa in particular to all of my friends and family.

Thank you so much.

Linda and Family

Thank you with all my heart for a most memorable holiday. We have had some of the best days of our lives, full of fun and laughter. Many memories have been made here and they will be treasured forever. Thank you to all the staff. We want to take you home. Hope to see you all again in 2014.

The Price Party

Here at villa Illusion we have had a idyllic week! A truly wonderful place, fantastic food and amazing views. Thanks so much to the staff for their hard work, expertise and never ending patience with our unreasonable behavior. We cannot think of anything we could have needed to make it any better. Lazy sunny days, amazing food and a really memorable holiday.

The Westover Family

What a magnificent week in paradise. First class accommodations at Illusion, St. James, Barbados. The home and its ocean views are simply breathtaking. The staff were kind, cheerful and attentive to our needs. We loved the coconut milk, the immaculate landscaping and the smiling faces. We enjoyed the pool to cool down after enjoying tennis at the clubhouse. We also loved the shopping, swimming with the turtles and paddle boarding. This was a vacation my wife and I will never forget. Thank you for sharing your wonderful home with us.

The Litchfield Family

We had a spectacular time here at Illusion among wonderful friends, beautiful scenery and a lovely home. We truly appreciated the care and attention of the staff as well. We can't express sufficient gratitude for your kindness in making the home available to us. Thank you so much.

Dr. Ralph Garippa Family

A first class experience all the way!

The Craig Party

My family and I have just had the immense pleasure of staying at the luxurious Barbados villa, Sugar Hill - Illusion for a week. The physical setting is spectacular and beyond beautiful. Any trepidation I had over not being “on the sea” was quickly squashed when I had my first view of the Caribbean Sea from our balcony. The pool at Illusion is not only very inviting but also safe for both children and adults.

What sets Illusion apart from any other Barbados villa is the wonderful staff. Grantley is always ready to fill any and all requests. Heather is Chef extraordinaire. Traveling with three small children and six adults, she always prepared the perfect meals for everyone. The rooms where always kept in tip-top shape and clean laundry appeared every day. The grounds were kept in perfect shape. We will definitely return for many more special family holidays.

Thank you Grantley and your great staff for helping to make our stay at Illusion relaxing and fun.

The Jones Family

Having stayed in many villas and hotels in Barbados, Illusion is most definitely the best. We have spent six glorious weeks in this lovely home, being looked after by the amazing staff in five star luxury with five star service. The staff have tendered to our every whim with such enthusiasm and always a lovely smile. Nothing was ever too much trouble. The Chef – wow can this guy cook – we had The Cliff type meals every time, first holiday we have eaten in more times than we have eaten out. We had many visitors during our stay and all were overwhelmed with the service the staff provided. In our view Illusion is truly paradise!
