10 June 2019

Located in the historic Holetown area on Barbados’ glorious Platinum Coast, the family-run sister hotels of the Coral Reef Club and The Sandpiper offer the discerning traveller the quintessential Caribbean holiday experience.

Here’s just a flavour of why you’ll love staying at one of these award-winning five-star luxury boutique hotels.

The sublime spa at the Coral Reef Club

Nestled amidst twelve acres of beautifully landscaped gardens, the Coral Reef Club is the epitome of West Indian elegance. The spa here is set within a beautiful colonial inspired building, with exotic vegetation and waterfalls weaving throughout, setting the scene for unparalleled natural beauty and tranquillity.

Inspired by nature, the interior design here is simply beautiful, with fine sand sheers, soft creamy linens and woven grass cloths, accompanied by coral stone walls and dark chocolate wood.

This tropical garden paradise features four multipurpose treatment rooms, each with its own private foot ritual patio and garden, as well as an Outdoor Pavilion for couples. There’s also a luxurious 'open sided' Relaxation Room, a Thermal Suite with a serene Crystal Steam Room, and an outdoor Hydro-pool with shaded cabanas where you can relax after your treatment. There’s also a chic manicure and pedicure room, which offers stunning views over the treetops,

Take your pick from a wide range of luxurious treatments, including soothing massages and rejuvenating facials, wraps and scrubs. The signature Lemongrass and Ginger Rub, and the Caribbean Calm Massage are not to be missed, and for the ultimate indulgence, why not opt for a full spa day and choose from an impressive array of exclusive collections, together with a leisurely light lunch in between your luxurious treatments?

The multi award-winning luxury brand, Natura Bissé, is the spa’s skincare range of choice, and this is complemented by an exotic range of body treatments that have been exclusively created using locally sourced plant life and fruits.

If you’re staying at The Sandpiper, you’ll enjoy complimentary luxury transfers for the two-minute drive to The Spa, so you’ll arrive relaxed and return revitalised.

Intimate al fresco dining at The Sandpiper

One of the most awarded luxury hotels in all of Barbados, The Sandpiper sits on a beautiful stretch of sandy beach. Surrounded by lush gardens, this boutique resort offers a relaxed ambience of ultimate privacy.

One of this stunning resort’s stand-out features is its remarkable restaurant, which is regarded by discerning diners as one of the very best in Barbados. Open on three sides to torchlit tropical gardens and surrounded by tranquil koi ponds, the restaurant at The Sandpiper will take your breath away. Offering eclectic food with a Caribbean flair, with dinner menus changing five times each week, expect beautifully presented dishes made with the finest local and imported ingredients.

On a Wednesday Night, there’s an incredible West Indian and international buffet, featuring favourite such as roast beef with Yorkshire pudding, Bajan flying fish, Caribbean shrimp and lobster salad or lamb curry, as well as a decadent display of desserts surrounding an opulent chocolate fountain. Whilst on Sunday nights, there’s a barbecue dinner with a wide selection of meats, fish and seafood available from the grill, all accompanied by live steel pan music.

The Sandpiper also features the laidback Harold’s Beach Bar - the perfect seaside setting for alfresco lunches and sundown cocktails. A timeless Bajan treasure, sample a range of modern tropical cocktails, including Harold's Smile, renowned for the special charm of its namesake, Harold Shepherd. In the evening, enjoy some of the finest live entertainment in all of Barbados, including Calypso, steel band, jazz, piano and reggae music. On a Wednesday, there’s also the weekly cocktail party, where you can mingle with your fellow guests before heading to the restaurant for the sumptuous feast that awaits.
