Tamarind occupies a prime location on the elegant West Coast of Barbados. It has a subtle Mediterranean influence with its red-tiled roofs but its spacious tropical gardens full of hibiscus and bougainvillea opening onto the magnificent beach, are unmistakeably Caribbean.
Float away and enjoy the sunshine in one of the resort's three freshwater swimming pools or indulge in the bubbles of the whirlpool. Down on the golden shores a variety of watersports are available; take to the warm waters and try your hand at kayaking, water skiing, windsurfing or snorkelling. Ashore, work out in the fitness centre or head to the new intimate spa.
Savour sumptuous cuisine at Tamarind's restaurants. Rilaks Deck offers tapas and cocktails, whilst 246 offers its diners fabulous food and live music in a premium position on one of Barbados's most idyllic beachfronts.
St James, 35 minute drive from Grantley Adams International Airport.
All 110 updated rooms and suites are spacious and cheerful. Beautifully appointed, most offer panoramic views of the palm-fringed shores from their private balcony or terrace.
