Sir Richard may prefer the privacy of his own island, but other Brits of that same feather flock together at Sandy Lane, along the west coast of Barbados. One of the Caribbean’s oldest and most esteemed resorts is also one of the most English, with a Palladian-style main building, a bar renowned for its Scottish single malts, and a head chef who previously cooked for the likes of Princess Di, Maggie Thatcher and Rod Stewart. Right down the road is the Barbados Polo Club, as well as the holiday homes of former prime minister Tony Blair and many other Anglo luminaries.
