The History Behind Colony Club
There is beautiful history behind Colony Club, Barbados. Preserving its colonial charm, Colony Club has been the home of a residential club along with a backdrop of a motion picture. The hotel was originally built by Mrs. Spencer Phillips, as a private home in 1930. The property, known as "The Clouds" was built on a six-acre plot of land. In 1941, J.R. Edwards, a Barbadian Magistrate, bought "The Clouds" from Mrs. Spencer and the land on which it stood for 3,000.00. Mr. Edwards lived a "The Clouds" and kept a paddock with ten brood mares on the property. Ann Embericos became associated with "Bunny" Edwards, owner of "The Clouds" and on her suggestion, the six-acre plot and coral stone house was renamed "Colony" after her favourite restaurant in New York. Mrs. Ann Embericos, the pioneer of the west coast luxury development, was a race horse enthusiast and retired in Barbados in 1941. She initiated the development of what is today, Colony Cub, one of the islands' better known resorts.
