Located on a dreamy stretch of sand on the West Coast of Barbados, the Fairmont Royal Pavilion is worth the trip for the spectacular sunsets alone. But, with a selection of appetizing restaurants, unique activities, and accommodation with show-stopping views, there are countless other reasons why this resort is ideal for a Bajan escape. To whet your appetite, we’ve managed to narrow it down to just five of our favourite reasons why Fairmont Royal Pavilion is perfect for your next luxury Barbados holiday.
1 - The Beach
Not only is the Fairmont Royal Pavilion located literally steps away from one of the best stretches of sand in Barbados, but because it was built before Barbados introduced restrictions on how close resorts could be built to the beach, it’s also closer to the beach than any other resort on the island.
2 – The Accommodation
No matter which accommodation you choose you can enjoy spectacular views of the Caribbean Sea, because all of the rooms and suites on offer feature terraces with ocean views. What’s more – because many of the Oceanfront Rooms may be interconnected, this hotel is especially perfect for families or groups travelling together. Beachfront Suites have unmatched views and are designed to reflect the island’s stunning environment in the fabrics, accents and artwork. Coming with a private decked area and dedicated butler service, Beachfront Suites immerse guests in complete luxury while maintaining a cosy and comfortable feel.
3 – The Watersports
You can explore the calm azure waters that lap the shore of the resort in a range of different ways, because throughout your stay you’ll enjoy complimentary use of a range of different watersports equipment. Head out on the waves aboard a stand-up paddle board or a kayak, bask in the sun atop a paddle boat or discover the bountiful sea life that lives beneath the waves as you go snorkelling; each day of your stay you can find an incredible new way to enjoy the ocean.
4 – The Cuisine
Fairmont Royal Pavilion offers a delectable range of different restaurants and culinary experiences to explore throughout your stay. Whether you head for a delicious breakfast at the Palm Terrace Restaurant, a Bajan-inspired seafood selection at the Taboras restaurant or casual beach-bites at the Beach Club, you can enjoy delicious feasts and incredible views of the Caribbean Sea wherever you dine. In addition, there are also a number of themed dining events on offer where speciality cuisine such as Italian, Tex-Mex and British fare is accompanied by live music.
“Every day the Taboras restaurant hosts an afternoon tea service that is just delicious! I loved getting a little taste of home with freshly baked scones, pastries and cakes as well as a huge range of teas. I’d especially recommend eating at 4pm because it’s huge and it will leave you enough time to get hungry before dinner!”
Holly Westwood, Sales Manager
5 – The Festive Activity Programme
Barbados is a time-honoured favourite for a touch of festive-sun and whether it’s your first-time spending Christmas in the Caribbean or it’s the only kind of Christmas you know – you’ll be delighted at the array of festive activities, meals and celebrations that the Fairmont Royal Pavilion lay on throughout the festive season. From 15 December until 4 January, each day you’ll find games, outdoor activities, mystery gift events, live entertainment and a tantalising selection of food including familiar festive favourites such as roast turkey as well as traditional Bajan cuisine, all served with lashings of sun, sea and celebrations.
