Barbados offers an idyllic haven stretching across the northern edge of the Caribbean sea. This exotic gem is nestled next door to St Lucia and St Vincent and with seventy miles of sandy shores, you won’t have to look far to find crystal-clear waters to bathe in.
If you are in need of some relaxation but don’t want to miss out on some stunning natural sights, Barbados is for you. It certainly lives up to its glamorous reputation - the island is blessed with a wealth of acclaimed fine dining restaurants and boutique bars. However, there is something understatedly luxurious about Barbados. It’s a proudly easy-going location where natural wonders meet effortlessly sophisticated resorts.
Of these resorts, the Coral Reef Club is to be noted. The resort perfectly captures the colonial charm of the island whilst remaining true to the Caribbean heritage - Coral Reef Club is made up of an array of coral cottages which give the feel of an authentic Caribbean village. An embodiment of Caribbean luxury, this resort offers a sensual paradise.
Colony Club is also on our top picks list. This luxury retreat is renowned on the island for its soaring palm trees and lagoon style pools. You won’t be disappointed by its architecture either - the classic, colonial look of the property is a highlight.
If you’re after something more intimate, why not stay at The Sandpiper? This coastal boutique hotel offers traditional charm coupled with an exceptional team who offer an exquisite service that leaves many travellers coming back to this spot year after year.
When visiting Barbados, there are some stunning locations that cannot be missed. Saunter around the boutique shops and tea houses in Bridgetown and enjoy duty-free shopping at your fingertips.
Beautiful, glittering beaches will greet you at every turn - but be sure to visit Mullins beach, one of the most popular destinations on the West coast. Golden sands and a calm sea is stereotypical of this exceptional beach which couples natural beauty with authentic bars and rum taverns.
Bathsheba is layered with pastel houses that line the cliff tops creating a unique, picture-perfect scene. The gardens and churches that surround Bathsheba are also not to be missed. Enjoy a leisurely stroll amongst the gardens before treating yourself to the taste of a refreshing rum - a Bajan delicacy.
