How To Plan the Perfect Barbados Holiday
A paradise of palm trees, white sands, turquoise waters and cultural curiosities, Barbados is a destination very close to our hearts. Our experienced sales team have extensively explored the island, allowing them to use their first-hand experience to carefully craft your dream getaway, whether that’s at one of our stunning Barbados 5 star holidays, or perhaps holidaying with the family at a resort perfectly designed just for that.
Barbados for Romance
Though filled with adventures, the island also has aseriously serene side, making it fabulous for honeymoons, anniversaries, or couples simply wanting to escape the everyday. Spend days walking along the world’s most beautiful beaches, swimming with gentle turtles, and admiring the sunset by luxury yacht. A romantic retreat awaits at Fairmont Royal Pavilion, set on the island’s most superb beach with half a mile of white sand and transparent waters. After embracing the Caribbean Sea with a wealth of watersports, lovers can toast with cocktails as they admire the spellbinding sunset, before a tikki torch-lit private dinner on the beach
Barbados for Families
Barbados is a firm favourite for luxury family holidays and there’s plenty to keep visitors of all ages busy. Accommodation wise, nowhere on the island quite does sand-between-your-toes, all-inclusive family luxury quite like Tamarind by Elegant Hotels. Little one’s will love the Flying Fish Kids’ Club’s extensive programme of games, crafts, and island activities, while increasingly independent teenagers can make new friends with beach volleyball or pool in the ultracool teen lounge. Along the coast, legendary Sandy Lane welcomes mini-VIPs to The Treehouse Club for arts, crafts, and games, and older children to The Den for movie nights, ‘mocktail’ parties, silent discos – and beyond.
Barbados of Foodies
Good food is a key ingredient for any luxury holiday and Barbados is the Caribbean’s capital of cuisine. From classic Bajan dishes – think flying fish, rice and peas, and macaroni pie – to lavish lobster platters and international delicacies, you can dine across the globe from this 21-mile island. The Cliff Bistro, The Lone Star, Sea Shed and Round House are some of our personally recommended restaurants. Cobblers Cove is also home to the highly regarded Camelot Restaurant which celebrates local produce – resident fisherman Barker brings his fresh catch to chef Jason Joseph each day.
Barbados for Sports Lovers
The isle’s balmy, year-round climate makes it a blissful destination for golfers, with a huge variety of courses on offer – enough to play a new course each day for a week! Sandy Lane takes golf very seriously, with three world-class courses (including the Tom Fazio-designed Green Monkey) all of which have played host to golf’s biggest names. Or, perhaps you’d prefer to watch world-class jockeys in the Sandy Lane Barbados Gold Cup or spectate some first-class cricket instead? The Kensington Oval hosts big, international matches during the season.
