    The Elegant Hotels of Barbados

    To the east of the Windward Islands, Barbados possesses acres of rolling green sugar cane fields, exotic trees and shrubs such as banyan, mahogany and flamboyant poinsettia. The coastline comprises of breath-taking soft sandy beaches lapped by calm turquoise waters on the west, and expanses of wild surf on the Atlantic east coast. Not just a tropical beach holiday destination, there are plenty of sightseeing attractions, including fine colonial-style plantation houses and villages dotted with brightly painted houses. Depending on what you’re looking for as your base for discovering Barbados, the Elegant Hotels group offers five distinctive options for couples and families alike.

    Colony Club – a low key family-friendly atmosphere with a true Caribbean style
    Just twenty minutes from the capital of Bridgetown on the Platinum West Coast, the newly reopened Colony Club is a family-friendly resort where modern conveniences meet classic Caribbean style thanks to its recent refurbishment. The grounds are brim-full of tropical vegetation and divine lagoon-style swimming pools on the beachfront. Participate in an array of complimentary water sports or merely indulge at the spa or at two restaurants, where health-conscious menus are central to the dining experience. A Dine Around programme allows guests to choose where to dine before ending the evening in Colony Club’s Sunset Bar or the intimate cocktail bar. Children are particularly well catered for at Colony Club, with its educational marine programmes, golf lessons, an Aqua School for water sports tuition, a seasonal Kids’ Korner and a babysitting service.

    Tamarind – understated elegance on 750-foot stretch of beach
    Also located on the island’s west coast, Tamarind is the sister property of Colony Club. The ambiance is more intimate and refined, providing a romantic space in which to enjoy the natural beauty of this beachside setting. It is a slightly larger property, with 104 guestrooms that have recently seen a contemporary refurbishment to offer luxurious and spacious accommodation with oversized ocean view balconies. A feeling of understated elegance is completed with open-air dining venues and an outdoor lounge bar; the Sunday beach party is a wonderful addition, where grilled dishes are accompanied by steel pan music. Although children are accepted at Tamarind, there are numerous adults-only facilities, including motorised and non-motorised water sports.
