Why Barbados is the ultimate destination for a luxury holiday

From beautiful, sun drenched beaches with swaying palms, to lavish beachfront hotels with indulgent amenities – Barbados simply oozes glamour and luxury. Whether you visit the decadent Sandy Lane, spend an afternoon on a luxurious golf course, or tuck into first-class cuisine, those looking for an indulgent stay in the Caribbean will love everything Barbados has to offer. Barbados’ hotels are effortlessly luxurious, so it’s no wonder many celebrities love to travel here for a relaxing break. The House by Elegant Hotels is by far one of the most picturesque luxury properties on the island – the homely décor blends well with lavish amenities including a large pool, divine Champagne breakfasts, and wonderful complimentary spa treatments. Our favourite way to really feel like royalty is to indulge on Sandals Barbados’ private butler service – what could be better than sitting back and soaking up the sun whilst your butler takes care of everything for you? You won’t even have to run your own bath, just simply enjoy the complimentary water sports, Jacuzzis, and revitalising spa.

If you’re looking for an upscale hotel that isn’t too flashy, the Fairmont Royal Pavilion has a lovely laidback vibe, but still offers pure indulgence and luxury. The hotel really hones in on enjoying creature comforts and pampering its guests, with a gorgeous freshwater pool, a beauty salon, in-room spa treatments and a Jacuzzi. It’s easy to see why The Sandpiper entices so many of the elite – the tropical gardens abundant in exotic birds are just wonderful to walk through, and the award-winning restaurant is perfect for a luxurious, romantic meal. Meanwhile, Cobblers Cove is probably one of Barbados’ most unique luxury properties. We’re sure you’ll quickly fall in love with the sugary pink plantation house – the rustic yet opulent vibe is ideal for early evening Bajan rum cocktails.

Barbados’ elite regularly hang out at the island’s plethora of events too, especially sports including golf and horse racing. The horse racing track at Garrison Savannah near Bridgetown hosts many race days throughout the year, including the extravagant Sandy Lane Gold Cup in March – a world famous event filled with international competitors, parades, music and decadent refreshments. Meanwhile, Sandy Lane’s expansive golf courses are perhaps some of the best in the world – it’s a costly day out, but golfing enthusiasts will love ticking these luscious courses off their list.

One of the best ways to feel luxurious and special is with a first-class meal, and Barbados is the perfect place for a romantic evening full of sumptuous cuisine and phenomenal views. Perched on the west coast beachfront, The Cliff restaurant is very opulent indeed – you’ll feel like royalty as you sip on fine Champagne and dine on Carpaccio of beef tenderloin as the sunset paints the skies with pretty colours. Cin Cin by the Sea is definitely the place to be seen too – this modern hangout has a chic and elegant vibe, and serves only the freshest of seafood.
