Behind a chic but unassuming converted 1940s garage exterior on the west coast of Barbados lies a true gem of a boutique hotel.

As soon as you pass through the narrow reception of the Lone Star, the building opens out into a verandah bar and restaurant simply furnished with white sofas and linens against rich mahogany floorboards – all selected to frame the star of the show…. the white sands and azure sea of Barbados.  

The breezy tropical chic interior of Lone Star boutique hotel - set in a former 1940s garage - is the perfect setting to enjoy the white sand and azure sea of Barbados

What awaits is a haven of laid-back luxury, and with only six perfectly-appointed rooms, the place has an intimate and glamorous vibe with the advantage of minimal crowds – unlike some of the bigger resorts on the island.

The butlers on hand to tend to your every need certainly help with settling down to a very relaxing holiday

Each morning, sun beds are prepped before you wake, ice cold jugs of water are delivered post swim and 11.30am becomes known as ‘sorbet time’, where a selection of home-made ices are presented to you. 

Before it's transformation into a chic boutique hotel the Lone Star was a 1940s garage by the same name. The hotel still retains many nods to its history including some retro-chic decor in the bar, and the quirky garage overalls donned by some of the staff

You’ll see the staff dressed in overalls – a quirky nod to the building’s past as a garage, along with the rooms which are all named after classic American cars that used to be serviced there. 

Cadillac, Buick and Studebaker are the best rooms with gorgeous sea views, but the jewel in the crown is the vast Lincoln suite in a coral-stone beach house right beside the main hotel.

The beach could not be closer to the hotel, restaurant and bar - everything you need to enjoy a relaxing break under the sun is mere steps away. And if you can't find the motivation to leave your sun lounger, a butler will help deliver whatever you need.

Set across two floors, this penthouse – with two en-suite double bedrooms – will take your breath away.  The first floor holds a beautifully furnished indoor lounge split into two areas with the ‘library’ complete with comfortable sofas, and a TV viewing area. 

But the real wow factor is the sweeping open lounge and dining room that adjoins with a stunning garden and sea view, the perfect setting to enjoy a glass of Lone Star’s signature – and very powerful- rum punch as you enjoy the sunset.

There is much to explore on the island – hiring a driver for the day to take in the sights is highly recommended, along with wreck-diving, swimming with turtles, Oistin’s fish fry, catamaran cruises and more – the hotel’s butlers and concierge can point you in the right direction. But if it’s complete relaxation you are after there’s really no need to leave Lone Star.

Many hours can be blissfully whiled away using the complimentary snorkels to search the corals for tropical fish, or just simply bobbing about enjoying the water.

The shoreline itself is a hive of activity with tiny ghost crabs digging their holes and little sand piper birds running in and out of the surf. Strolling along the beach will bring you to a selection of other small bars and cafes and watersports to enjoy.

And eating at restaurant at Lone Star is certainly not to be missed, priding itself on attracting a celebrity clientele to its open deck, it offers a menu of flavourful and simply-presented European/Caribbean menu. 

The restaurant - which serves a menu of fresh and delicious Caribbean and European cuisine - sits on an open verandah with wonderful views of Alleyne's Bay

Favourites include the plump and juicy coconut shrimp with mango dipping sauce, and the catch of the day – usually a red snapper or Barracuda – grilled to perfection. There’s also some hearty fare for the dedicated meat-eaters including steak, short rib, aromatic duck and shepherd’s pie.

After dining, retire to the boardwalk, or sink your toes into the sand and enjoy a drink from the expertly-mixed cocktail list as you soak in the view. And if it’s jealousy-inducing social media snaps you’re after, a quick Instagram search of #lonestarbarbados will show you just how popular posing by the leaning palm in front of the restaurant is – the perfect reminder of a wonderful holiday.

 Rates: Summer rates start from USD $595 / GBP £440 per night double occupancy.

Sitting at the wheel of the futuristic new Mercedes-Benz EQS luxury limousine feels less like getting ready to drive and more like preparing for lift-off.

Faced with a panoramic hi-tech screen, doing pre-flight checks for space travel seems far more appropriate in this all-electric craft.

Before driving it on UK roads ahead of first deliveries from February, I familiarised myself with the system on this remarkable masterpiece of engineering. 

Merc masterpiece: The EQS luxury electric limousine is packed with technology and priced from £100,000

This is arguably the smartest and most efficient new car ever to hit the road. Indeed, this streamlined battery-powered Benz promises a range of up to 453 miles.

It all matters because this cutting-edge technology will, over time, trickle down from the top to most family cars.

Sky’s the limit

The new EQS is the first Mercedes-Benz to be built on a bespoke platform for the firm’s large luxury and executive class electric vehicles, and is the battery-powered sibling of the conventional flagship S-Class limousine.

The EQS’s vast digital dashboard instantly made me think of the Airbus A380 ‘superjumbo’ cockpit.

Starship command: The EQS’s vast panoramic hi-tech digital dashboard looks like something from a sci-fi film

At the heart of this impressive machine, with its smart but beautifully appointed interior, is the striking hyper-screen incorporating multiple displays under one cinematic spread of curved glass stretching nearly 5ft. The front passenger even has their own 12in screen.

Two main versions of the EQS are available for sale at launch in the UK. The standard 333 horse-power EQS 450+ range priced from £99,950 comes in three sports-oriented AMG Line variants (AMG Line, AMG Line Premium and AMG Line Premium Plus) and two classic Luxury versions (Luxury and Exclusive Luxury).

These all accelerate from rest to 62mph in 6.2 seconds up to a top speed of 137mph.

Priced from £154,995 and arriving in April, there is the more powerful 659 horse-power sports-performance Mercedes-AMG EQS 53 4Matic+ which accelerates to 62mph in just 3.8 seconds up to a top speed of 155mph.

Seven magnificent EQS features 

Hyperscreen

A £7,995 high-tech extra that transforms the cockpit of your EQS into the bridge of the Starship Enterprise.

MBUX 

Sensors in the Mercedes-Benz User Experience or MBUX system use artificial intelligence to monitor your time on the road.

‘Hey, Mercedes’

Want to know tomorrow’s weather? Just say, ‘Hey, Mercedes’ and the Alexa-style voice assistant will tell you.

Fingerprint Scanners

Fingerprint scanner logs you into your individual personalised driver settings as well as preferences. 

Facial recognition is also an option.

SatNav

Not only will it get you to your destination, it’ll find you vital charging points en route.

Massage seats

A choice of warm back massages to soothe your aching limbs on a long journey.

Head-up Display

Augmented reality head-up display keeps your eyes focused firmly on to the road ahead while projecting speed, speed limit, satnav directions and warnings in the line of sight.

First impressions

I drove the EQS 450+ Exclusive Luxury which costs from £113,995, but the hi-tech hyper-screen (an extra £7,995) takes the final price up to £121,990.

Powered by its 333 horsepower 245kW electric motor, there are three main driving modes: Eco — if you’re trying to save energy; Comfort — for relaxed everyday driving; and Sport — when you want a more exciting drive. You can also tweak it yourself with the Individual setting.

Approaching the car with the fob in your hand or pocket, the EQS’s door handles emerge automatically to greet you.

Before setting off, I set up my personal driver profile using a fingerprint security scanner. 

After that a simple print-swipe remembers me every time I log in — allowing a number of drivers to set up the car to their own seating position, driving preferences and music choices.

The car sweeps effortlessly along motorways and the smooth ride is aided by the self-levelling air suspension which raises the vehicle for rough roads and lowers for greater aerodynamic performance at high speed.

On country roads and in the city it’s nimble — thanks to 10-degree rear axle steering which combines with the front wheels to reduce the turning circle of this 5 metre-long car to just 10.9 metres, similar to many compact class vehicles. 

The heads-up display keeps your eyes focused on the road and highlights speed, the speed limit, satnav directions and relevant warnings.

For passengers in the rear there’s masses of legroom and noise-insulating and infra-red reflecting privacy glass.

The optional Luxury Lounge package (costing £3,995) brings a host of extras including electrically-adjustable rear seats with massage functions, a comfort rear arm-rest, climate control and wireless smartphone charging.

The rear boot is vast and the panoramic sliding sunroof lets the light flood in.

Sensors galore

Central to all the brainpower on the screens and around the car is the Mercedes-Benz User Experience or MBUX. 

It uses artificial intelligence to enhance driving — from the augmented reality technology in the navigation screen to the intelligent voice control with speech recognition and the ability to speak 27 languages.

Up to 350 sensors monitor the EQS’s functions, recording distances, speeds and acceleration, lighting conditions, precipitation and temperature.

However, I did experience ‘range anxiety.’ A run to the Midlands from London initially showed enough charge, but heading back it seemed I wasn’t going to make it. 

Pressing the on-screen icon for a public charger, a menu revealed a list of the nearest charging points. 

Mercedes says charging with a 200kW DC rapid charger takes 31 minutes to 80 per cent, or 15 minutes to 186 miles. A full charge on an 11kW AC wall-box takes ten hours.

I was also impressed with the Alexa-like ‘Hey, Mercedes’ when I asked it to carry out tasks. Maybe the robots really are taking over.

Demand drives soaring prices 

Used car prices rose by more than 30 per cent last month to an average of £17,816 — with some increasing by more than 50 per cent when comparing like for like.

The biggest top-ten price jumper year-on-year in December was the Seat Alhambra, now costing an average £19,038, the Auto Trader retail price index reveals.

It was followed by: the Renault Grand Scenic (average £10,152), Skoda Octavia (£16,826), Ford S-Max (£15,142), Skoda Yeti (£12,739), Ford Focus (£15,475), Land Rover Defender 110 (£81,857), Hyundai i30 (£13,963), Toyota Yaris (£13,647) and the Ford Grand C-Max (£12,189). 

Price hikes have been driven by Covid and a global computer chip shortage delaying deliveries of new cars — which has increased demand for used vehicles.

In December the average asking price of a ‘nearly new’ vehicle (those aged less than 12 months old) rose by 45 per cent compared with the two years prior in December 2019, reaching an average price of £34,429.

Richard Walker, Auto Trader’s director of data and insights, said the used market ‘is on track for strong continued price growth well into the second half of the new year’.

‘The two main factors fuelling this growth, supply constraints and strong consumer demand, both show no signs of easing any time soon. 

Claims of an imminent bubble burst are failing to take these key dynamics into account,’ he added. The rival CarFinance 247 used car price index also reported ‘double-digit annual growth’.

New Selfridges owners plan a luxury hotel on same site as its flagship Oxford Street store










The new owners of Selfridges are planning to open a luxury hotel as part of a major revamp of its flagship store.

The 113-year-old business, whose UK stores are in London, Manchester and Birmingham, was sold by the Weston family for £4billion on Christmas Eve. 

The buyers – Thai retailer Central Group and Austrian property firm Signa – now want to overhaul the Oxford Street site in London.

Part of it has been empty since 2008 when the old Selfridges Hotel was closed.

Central and Signa plan to develop a luxury hotel as well as serviced apartments. Signa executive chairman Dieter Berninghaus said such a move would mean ‘significant upside potential’ for the new owners.

‘The purchase price merely reflects the valuation of the main Selfridges building and its retail utilisation,’ he told the Financial Times.

Central and Signa, which already jointly own Swiss department store chain Globus and Berlin department store Kadewe, will also focus on food. Berninghaus said: ‘We plan to trade up the food hall of Selfridges. 

That is one of our core competencies we have in the group. We operate the best fine food delicatessen business in the world.’

Selfridges was founded by American Harry Gordon Selfridge in 1908 and has 25 shops worldwide including in Dublin, the Netherlands and Canada. 

It was bought by the Weston family for £598million in 2003 in a deal spearheaded by Galen Weston who died in April aged 80.

Central Group is controlled by the billionaire Thai Chirathivat family while Signa Group was founded by the Austrian property magnate Rene Benko. The pair will share ownership of Selfridges in a 50-50 joint venture.

The proposed redevelopment in London comes amid a wave of change on Oxford Street that has already seen Debenhams, Topshop, French Connection and Gap shut.

House of Fraser is expected to leave soon while younger rivals such as Primark go from strength to strength.

Selfridges is not alone in planning for the future on Oxford Street.

Marks & Spencer’s Marble Arch flagship store is set for an overhaul. The retailer plans to raze the building and build a new site with half the selling space and several floors of offices above.

The development is set to include a shopping arcade, a small park and possibly facilities such as a gym.

John Lewis is also planning to convert its upper floors into offices, as shoppers go online.

British luxury car maker Rolls-Royce has announced the highest sales in its 117 year history – up by a dramatic 49 per cent – as it boosts the number of bespoke commissions and accelerates into an electric future.

Bosses claimed that the Covid pandemic had actually helped fuel the record sales boom as well-heeled customers with a ‘life can be short’ mentality decided to splash out now on a Rolls-Royce, rather than wait. 

As the super-rich shrugged off the effects of the global pandemic, sales to clients around the world soared to a record 5,586 motor cars as well-heeled customers personalised record numbers of bespoke vehicles to their specific taste.

Rolls-Royce said it enjoyed ‘a phenomenal year’ with high demand for all models, particularly the Ghost limousine and Cullinan SUV, reporting all-time records in most sales regions, including Greater China, the Americas and Asia-Pacific, and in multiple countries across the world. 

'Life can  be short' mentality sparks record sales for Rolls-Royce: British luxury car maker announced record sales in 2021 for its 117 year history – up by 49% year-on-year to 5,586 units

With order books extending into the third quarter of 2022, the company with a boutique factory at Goodwood in West Sussex said bespoke commissions were also at record levels, with customers typically spending double the basic list price to customise their vehicle to their personal tastes. Sometimes the final tally can be much higher

Rolls-Royce proclaimed itself the ‘undisputed leader’ in the super-luxury segment for cars priced over £250,000. 

Chief executive Torsten Müller-Ötvös told This is Money: ‘It’s very much down to Covid, as with the entire luxury business world-wide.

‘People cannot travel a lot. They cannot invest in luxury services.

‘For that reason there’s a lot of money accumulated worldwide to be spent on luxury goods. We’ve all profited from that.’

On a serious note he said: ‘People are dying from Covid. It makes people think that life can be short and that it’s better to live now.’

He added that despite 2021 being a ‘volatile and challenging’ year, the biggest challenge was not seeking customers, but satisfying demand which has been ‘never stronger.’

Waiting times for a new Rolls-Royce are currently running at one year.

Mr Müller-Ötvös said: ‘If you order a Rolls-Royce today you will expect to take delivery in about a year from now.’

The Cullinan SUV and Ghost each accounted for 40 per cent of total sales. 

Other highlights of the past year included: the unveiling of partially disguised first all-electric production car called Spectre – set for showrooms in 2023 after a year of testing around the world; the launch of Black Badge Ghost in October (priced from £325,000 or £100,000 above the standard Ghost); and the unveiling of its coachbuilt £20million Boat Tail (one of three separate and unique commissions) marking the launch of Rolls-Royce Coachbuild as a permanent fixture in its portfolio.

Spelling out its success, the company said: ‘All Rolls-Royce models performed extremely strongly. 

‘Growth has been driven principally by Ghost, with demand surging further, following the launch of Black Badge Ghost in October 2021. 

‘This, together with the continuing pre-eminence of Cullinan and the marque’s pinnacle product, Phantom, has ensured order books are full well into the third quarter of 2022.’

Record sales were driven by its latest new model, the updated Ghost limousine (pictured)

The company’s Provenance programme for ‘pre-owned’ or second hand vehicles also enjoyed ‘exceptional’ all-time record sales.

Record bespoke commissions were boosted by examples such as the Phantom Oribe co-created with Hermès, the Phantom Tempus, Black Badge Wraith and Black Badge Dawn Landspeed Collection cars, it said adding: ‘The company signalled its commitment to leading a new contemporary coachbuilding movement with Rolls Royce Coachbuild becoming a permanent fixture in its future portfolio, and with it the unveiling of its latest coach-built masterpiece, Boat Tail.’

Significantly, nearly a third (27 per cent) of all Rolls-Royce customers now opt for the ‘Black Badge’ treatment on their luxury cars – rising to around 40 per cent in some cases and regions. 

The Black Badge range has been aimed at a bustling younger market of millionaires, meeting their requirements for stealth-like motors with all-black grilles and design features.

It’s paying off handsomely in profits, too, for although Rolls-Royce doesn’t publish its accounts separately from parent company BMW, industry experts who have dived deep into the figures reckon the firm is now jointly the most profitable car company in the world alongside Italy’s Ferrari, with an estimated 50 per cent return on investment.

Rolls-Royce also announced its first all-electric car, Spectre, during 2021 (cheekily in the same week as the launch of the new 007 movie ‘No Time to Die’ in which Bond’s nemesis organisation is called SPECTRE) noting: ‘The extraordinary undertaking of bringing Spectre to market by the fourth quarter of 2023 has now begun, and the most punishing testing protocol ever conceived for a Rolls Royce is underway. This 1.5 million mile (2.5 million-kilometre) journey, which extends to all four corners of the world, will simulate more than 400 years of use for a Rolls Royce.’

It added: ‘While preparations are made for the marque’s all-electric future, Rolls-Royce continues to meet the surge in demand for its current portfolio through a flexible manufacturing process and the dedication of the over 2,000 people who work at the Home of Rolls-Royce in Goodwood, West Sussex and around the world.’

The Rolls-Royce factory at Goodwood is currently running at maximum capacity, on a two-shift pattern to fulfil orders from clients around the world, it stressed, noting: ‘Rolls-Royce will continue to invest in its manufacturing plant in readiness for electrification, and in future talent, with a record 37 new apprentices set to join the company in September 2022.’

Mr Müller-Ötvös added: ‘2021 was a phenomenal year for Rolls-Royce Motor Cars.

‘In the past 12 months, we have recorded our highest-ever annual sales, launched the latest addition to our Black Badge family, stunned the world with our coachbuilding capabilities and made huge strides into our all-electric future. ‘

He continued: ‘Our extremely strong product portfolio, an exceptional bespoke offering, together with the first full year of availability of Ghost, the launch of Black Badge Ghost in October and the continuing record demand for bespoke personalisation, has contributed meaningfully to our extremely strong performance.

‘This is hugely encouraging as we prepare for the historic launch of Spectre, our first all-electric car. Building on this year’s success, we will continue to evolve as a true luxury brand, beyond the realms of automotive manufacturing.’

He praised ‘the dedication and commitment of the extraordinary people’ at Rolls-Royce noting: ‘It is my privilege and pleasure to work alongside them every day.’ 

The Rolls-Royce boss also suggested that this year could marginally exceed 2021’s record sales, saying: ‘Our future is secure.’

The company is planning a new paint shop and may be recruiting more staff.

Brexit had brought some ‘bureaucracy and red tape’ particularly around bringing in key workers from the Continent, and some labelling issues. But had not halted the sales boom, he said.

Last week British luxury rival Bentley, owned by Volkswagen Group, also announced record global sales – up nearly a third – as it charges ahead with ambitious plans to electrify its entire range. 

Fellow prestige brand Aston Martin also announced it had achieved its target to sell around 6,000 vehicles to wholesalers in 2021.

The manufacturer revealed sales jumped by 82 per cent to 6,182 last year, including slightly over 3,000 units of its DBX model to take a 20 per cent share of the luxury SUV market.
