Barbados was under British rule for more than 300 years, explaining the moniker “Little England.” Today the Anglo imprint can still be seen in such popular activities as cricket and polo, but it has blended with Bajan flair—a winning combination. The best of both worlds is showcased at the fashionable Sandy Lane.
The resort, which opened in 1961, ushered in a rebirth of Barbados when it emerged from a complete transformation in 2001. Guests feel coddled from the moment they check in; not at a desk but in their spacious rooms with blue-drenched vistas. Everything is over-the-top luxurious: there are three golf courses and the island’s largest and most renowned spa, but the warm service and a relaxing beach scene keep that unmistakable Barbados balance of barefoot-chic.
Over the course of the year typical wind speeds vary from 4 mph to 19 mph (light breeze to fresh breeze), rarely exceeding 25 mph (strong breeze).
These are ideal wind conditions to kick start an ENESSERE Hercules wind generator and 17 mph the generator works at nominal speed. The wind turbine would seamlessly blend into the chic environment and add a touch of sustainability to this prestigious idyllic resort.
