A blissful tropical climate softened by Atlantic trade winds, pinkish-white, sugar-soft beaches, fabulous scuba diving, and laid-back catamaran cruises… These are just some of the fabulous experiences to be savoured in one of the Caribbean’s most popular and welcoming destinations - Barbados.
The most relaxing resorts in the Caribbean
With cocooning spas, shimmering pools, and locally inspired five-star dining, Elite Island Resorts is a boutique collection of seven all-inclusive, mainly beachfront resorts in the Caribbean. Places to relax and indulge yourself, they also immerse you in the beauty and charm of this magical region thanks to their one-of-a-kind adventures. Everywhere from the offshore reefs of the Grenadines to the party island of Barbados – including eco-adventures such as rainforest hikes, kayaking, zip-lining, and island safaris.
Elite Island Resorts has five of its fantastic properties here, in one of the Caribbean’s most popular destinations for an all-inclusive holiday. The Galley Bay Resort & Spa, The Verandah (reopening in November 2023), the Pineapple Beach Club Antigua, and Hammock Cove are four of them, all adult only. For couples but also for families, St James’s Club & Villas is one of our favourite recommendations in the entire Caribbean and a perennial favourite with our customers.
Set on a secluded peninsula on the southeast coast, the St James’s has a vintage Caribbean feel, top-notch service, a country club, a gorgeous spa, tennis courts, and a kids’ club. Blessed with two white-sand beaches, it offers sailing, kayaking, paddleboarding, and snorkelling and scuba diving to see well-preserved coral reefs, colourful marine life, and fascinating shipwrecks. You can also book deep sea fishing expeditions to reel in the likes of mahi-mahi, tuna and wahoo, off-road safari tours, and zip-line adventures through the canopy-lined treetops.
This fun-loving island – one of the Caribbean’s best-loved destinations – is home to Elite Island Resorts’ boutique-style, adult-only The Club Barbados. With its delightful accommodation ranging from oceanfront and pool-view suites to romantic ocean lofts, and its colourful rum bar and weekly rum parties.
While it’s definitely a place to escape from the world, The Club Barbados is another great place from which to discover the authentic Caribbean. Enjoy diving, sunset cruises, and visits to historic sites, including Gun Hill Signal Station, George Washington House, and historic Bridgetown’s Parliament Buildings.
This chain of more off-the-beaten-track islands includes Elite Island Resorts’ exclusive, private Palm Island Resort & Spa with its stunning beaches, beachfront wellbeing centre, and activities such as Hobie Cat sailing, kayaking, paddle boarding, and snorkelling near sea turtles. Other experiences include stargazing, silent movie nights, rum tasting, crab racing, and the option of private beach picnics.
The resort even has its own private launch taking you over to Union Island where you can kite surf and hike the nature trails of Mount Taboi, and explore its main town of Clifton with its lovely beach bars and restaurants. There are also the nearby Tobago Cays to explore.
