Property magnates from across the globe are circling the Royal Westmoreland resort and golf club in Barbados.

 

The resort is a favourite of many sporting celebrities and Manchester United and England Footballer Wayne Rooney owns a holiday home there.

 

Valued at £75m, the 750 acre site was built by holiday-home tycoon John Morphet and is likely to catch the eye of other resort owners.

 

“Interest for Royal Westmoreland has come from the UK, USA and Japan. In most cases the buyers own other resort hotels and are interested in expanding the villa sales programme beyond the UK, has accounted for 90% of sales,” explains Robin Paterson, chairman of Sotheby’s International Realty UK.

 

A former sugar plantation, the resort extends to 750 acres and has more than 200 privately owned villas and cottages, as well as 11 under construction and permission to build 150 more on vacant plots.
