This welcoming family-owned resort is set on a stunning stretch of beach and offers an intimate all-inclusive experience.
From the moment you’re welcomed with a rum punch and warm smile, you’ll feel a wave of relaxation wash over you at this chic new resort and sister hotel to Bougainvillea Barbados. It’s tucked away in tropical gardens edging a protected lagoon and soft white sands that attract nesting leatherback turtles and the tranquil bay is ideal for children. The calm waters offer a family-friendly alternative to the crashing surf of other south coast resorts. The elegant interiors are cool and airy with vintage furniture and a blend of contemporary and traditional touches – from sparkling chandeliers and lush plants to bright prints and a wall of colourful chattel house shutters.
The service is exceptional and the attentive staff really make you feel at home. There is a cosy family feel here but it never feels crowded and there is plenty of space to relax. Lounge by the small pool, sip cocktails at the swim-up bar or enjoy a siesta in one of the hammocks strewn between palms. A great choice of restaurants includes Reef where you can sink your toes in the sand and listen to the waves while enjoying delicious dishes and themed buffets including Caribbean, Mediterranean and Asian. There are two superb speciality restaurants – Sizzle Steakhouse and UMI, an Asian-fusion restaurant – and a traditional rum shop that provides a casual setting for lunch, snacks and drinks – try tasty local specialities such as macaroni cheese pie, spicy fried flying fish and coconut cream pie. Evenings are fairly low key with live music and film nights on the beach – munch popcorn under the stars from the comfort of your sunlounger.
The contemporary rooms are set in the main building or on the hillside. They each feature a cool neutral palette with warm splashes of colour, a balcony or terrace, free Wi-Fi and toiletries by The White Company. Signature Rooms offer pool or garden views. Upgrade to a Deluxe Signature Room for extra space or an Oceanfront Room for stunning sea views. The Family Suites have a separate living room with sofa bed and are ideal if you’re travelling in a small group.
