As well as fabulous beaches and world-class hotels, Barbados is renowned for its top collection of restaurants, bars and eateries. Our Travel Specialists always recommend making the most of your visit by dining out and trying local cuisine, which is just one of the many reasons we often suggest a stay at one of the Elegant Hotels bed & breakfast properties: Colony Club, The House, Treasure Beach or Tamarind.
A stay at any of these superlative hotels means you’ll be staying in complete comfort and benefitting from excellent locations and the service of outstanding staff, while enjoying complete freedom when it comes to dining; choose to try one of the onsite restaurants, sample the fare at another Elegant Hotel, or venture out into Barbados for an authentic local experience at one of the plethora of amazing venues.
For those who prefer to limit holiday costs ahead of time (so all you need to worry about is relaxing!), guests at Colony Club, Treasure Beach or Tamarind can choose to upgrade their stay to half board or full board and take part in the Taste of Elegance Dine Around Programme; enjoying lunch and dinner at any of the trio of hotels. Simply make the reservation at the reception of your host hotel, and take the Elegant Hotels water taxi along the coast to dine in style!
With all these options, we could understand if you found yourself spoilt for choice between these four fantastic enclaves – so we’ve put together a short guide to each Elegant Hotel below.
With a superb location on the West Coast, Colony Club has established itself as one of the very best in Barbados. The 96 rooms feature plenty of space, soothing décor and plush amenities including REN toiletries and Nespresso coffee machines. Those keen to experience the authentic Bajan lifestyle can head to the new Rum Vault to sample some of the 150 quality rums on offer. Dining options include the open-air Laguna Restaurant and oceanfront Sunset Deck Restaurant.
The House is an adults-only hideaway and the perfect choice for a romantic escape or couple’s retreat. Indulge in a jet lag massage to kick-start the holiday feeling, and start each day with a luxurious champagne breakfast. Upon arrival you will be introduced to your Ambassador, who will provide personalised service throughout your stay. Relaxation is the name of the game here, and you’ll soon fall in love with the laidback atmosphere that makes this very much a home away from home.
With views of white sand and the sparkling Caribbean Sea, Treasure Beach is an adults-only bolthole offering the perfect location for an intimate boutique getaway. This is a top location for foodies; Tapestry Restaurant, helmed by an award-winning chef, offers a world of international cuisine and stunning cuisine that’s as much a treat for the eyes as it is delicious. Just some of the excellent inclusions you’ll enjoy during your stay include a nightly cocktail reception, complimentary watersports and access to the Dine Around programme.
A top choice for a family holiday, Tamarind is set on a lovely stretch of premium West Coast beach. There’s a great selection of accommodation options too, so whether you’re holidaying with the whole brood or staying as a couple you’re sure to find the perfect place to stay. Friendly staff really go above and beyond – whether its providing top-class service in the restaurants or offering expert tuition on a range of watersports, from snorkelling and stand-up paddle boarding to banana boat rides!
