A superb Barbados beach location on the island’s exclusive West Coast and glorious levels of luxury have established Sandy Lane as the preferred Caribbean resort of royalty, celebrities and discerning travellers alike.
From the moment you arrive via the majestic mahogany tree-lined driveway at this grand Palladian-style hotel, you will experience unparalleled levels of personalised service; the hallmark of every Sandy Lane stay.
Relax in the exquisite surrounds of your elegant colonial-style accommodation with its state of the art features. Each room and suite boasts a spacious private verandah on which you can enjoy a pre-dinner cocktail or candlelit meal for two.
If you're looking to be pampered, then the magnificent Romanesque spa is for you. This delightful sanctuary is fronted by a waterfall and free-form pool and features a wide selection of treatments. Indulge in everything from chakra therapy to a tranquil Bajan massage.
Sandy Lane is at once the perfect spot for a romantic getaway and a great choice for a family-friendly luxury holiday. While children and teenagers enjoy the resort's dedicated facilities and a variety of supervised activities, parents can be confident that their youngsters are in the very best hands.
Golfers will relish the chance to play the three championship-style courses, including the famous Green Monkey designed by Tom Fazio. This iconic 18-hole golf course is exclusive to Sandy Lane guests.
Of course, no stay would be complete without experiencing the resort's four magnificent restaurants. Fine dining at the signature à la carte 'L'Acajou' is something very special, as is a beach-side afternoon tea at the more relaxed Bajan Blue.
For the ultimate Sandy Lane experience, consider staying at The Villa, a private and palatial five-bedroom property with its own access to Sandy Lane beach. Here, you will benefit from a dedicated butler, housekeeper and chef, as well as your own private swimming pool.
St James, 40 minutes transfer from Grantley Adams International Airport.
112 rooms and suites, each with a spacious private verandah. Guests are treated to gorgeous views of the lush tropical gardens or the stunning crescent-shaped beach, as well as elegant furnishings and spacious bathrooms. One villa with five bedrooms is also available, for added privacy.
As you would expect from such a luxurious resort, Sandy Lane offers a wide range of activities to keep all guests entertained. Located along the ‘platinum coast’ of Barbados, the white sand beach is spectacular – and made all the more enjoyable by the hotel’s personalised beachside service. At the south end of the beach, you’ll find the Beach Club, where you can partake in a variety of exciting and supervised watersports, including banana boat rides, catamaran sailing, and even swimming with turtles! If this array of complimentary non-motorised watersporting activities isn’t enough to keep you amused, then deep-sea fishing charters and scuba diving can also be arranged. Alternatively, soak up the magnificent Barbados sunshine by the 7,500 square foot swimming pool, which boasts a beautiful cascading waterfall and is bordered by vibrant tropical gardens.

If tennis is more your thing, then you only have nine courts to choose from at Sandy Lane, as well as a resident tennis professional. Or, if you can drag yourself away from the property, then the resort also enjoys a fantastic location on the island – close to everything you could ever want and more!
With four excellent restaurants to choose from, as well as a wealth of cuisine from all over the world, guests at Sandy Lane are sure to embark on the culinary experience of a lifetime. Whether you opt for the chic, open-air, à la carte 'L'Acajou', the more relaxed but equally divine Bajan Blue, or the panoramic Country Club, you’ll dine on some indulgent flavours and forge some unforgettable memories.
