A classic and elegant hotel with excellent oceanfront dining and a superb location on serene St James Beach.

This award-winning, colonial-style hotel is set across beautiful pastel-pink blocks framed by towering palm trees, in one of the island’s finest beachfront spots. Spend your time lazing on the idyllic stretch of powdery golden sand and soaking up unobstructed sea views from the hotel’s stylish restaurants. Explore the 11-acre gardens and keep an eye out for mischievous green monkeys clambering in the fig trees, or choose a book from the hotel’s library and unwind in your own private spot. If you're lucky you could even get to enjoy a seasonal swim with the turtles experience.

Indulge in open-air dining under the stars with the sound of the waves lapping the shore, and enjoy low-key entertainment from local musical talent. The stylish, beachfront Palm Terrace Restaurant is open for breakfast and serves exquisite local and international dishes, with breathtaking sea views. Poolside restaurant Taboras is a relaxed and romantic setting for à la carte lunch and dinner – enjoy the catch of the day, a barbecue and delicious Bajan cuisine, all accompanied by live music.

The newly refurbished rooms and suites have chic Barbadian beach house vibes, with soothing cream and white décor, sleek floors and spectacular sea views. Each room includes daily buffet breakfast, airport fast track service, a weekly Manager's cocktail reception and all non-motorised watersports. Luxury Oceanfront Rooms have glass-fronted balcony rails to enhance your ocean views even further. For guests travelling with family, the Villa – Two Bedroom Suite or the Three Bedroom Villa are ideal. These spacious retreats give you extra privacy and more room to stretch out in. If you’re staying in a Signature Oceanfront Room, or any of the suites or villas, you’ll have swish extras including in-room amenities, evening canapés and afternoon tea once every seven days.
