An exceptional resort with a tranquil setting, superb facilities and a long-standing reputation for excellence.

Follow a sweeping drive lined with mahogany trees to the coral-stone great house of this award-winning resort that blends classic Bajan charm with contemporary luxury. While long-established traditions such as afternoon tea are still in place and loyal guests return year after year, this family-owned and run resort is also attracting new guests keen to experience the resort’s renowned colonial charm, impeccable service and fine dining. Breathe in the sweet scent of the frangipani trees as you follow winding paths through landscaped gardens to the exceptional spa or the golden beach.

Dress up for dinner at the elegant Restaurant which offers classic dishes with a Caribbean twist and beautiful sea views. With daily changing à la carte menus you will find plenty to tempt you, including freshly caught seafood and tasty desserts such as flambéed pineapple drizzled with rum. Enjoy cocktails and live music at the chic bar and don’t miss the weekly barbecue which is accompanied by a lively floor show with limbo dancing and fire eating.

Each of the colonial-style rooms is named after local flowers, trees and fruits, and range from smaller rooms for solo travellers to spacious villas for families. Garden Room/Cottages are set in the gardens. Luxury Plantation Suites are perfect for honeymooners – they have a four-poster bed, private plunge pool and sea views, and come with inclusions like afternoon tea plus a stocked bar and bottle of Champagne on arrival.
