The Elegant Hotels Group offers some of Barbados' finest properties. With five hotels set on the island's most stunning beaches along the western and southern coasts, the hotel group has a well-earned reputation as offering sophisticated accommodations to suit every taste be it an all-inclusive adults-only resort or a traditional stay for the entire family.
Whatever your choice, Elegant Hotels sets the tone, "elegance with a twist."
Guests can experience island luxury at its best at The House by Elegant Hotels, recently named as one of the ''Best Adults-Only Hotels in the Caribbean' by Caribbean Journal.

Accommodations: This retreat has 34 newly remodeled, private junior and 1-bedroom suites, ensuring that any couple's get away will not only be romantic but intimate. Suites offer king-sized beds and intimate plunge pools (upon request), and whether it's the lush tropical garden or the Caribbean Sea, the views are guaranteed to be spectacular. One-bedroom suites include a VIP meet-and-greet at the airport with express service through Customs and Immigration, one-way arrival transfer, amenities and an en suite Nespresso machine.
Pampering: What's a vacation with a special someone without a little pampering? At The House, couples can select from a spa menu featuring such tantalizing treatments as the Royal Bajan Ritual massage, a Jet Lag Revival massage (complimentary upon arrival) or a Refresh facial, not to mention a host of wraps and scrubs guaranteed to make your skin virtually glow.
At Your Service: With 24-hour Ambassador service, The House makes sure that no need (or whim) goes unmet. In fact, the phones don't have service buttons–just a direct line to the Ambassadors, who act as a combination personal assistant, receptionist, bellman, concierge, waiter and friend. (A girl could get used to this!)
Dine and Unwind. The House makes sure their guests start each day the right way with a complimentary champagne breakfast. Other treats include gourmet passed canapés in the evening and complimentary afternoon tea. Couples who crave an even more personalized experience may dine in-room, or savor the food and each other's company at a private beachside table. Guests may enjoy select menu items throughout the day from Daphne's, the world-renowned beachfront Italian restaurant made famous by its London counterpart and Le Caprice, its sister restaurant in New York's Upper East Side. Gourmands will appreciate weekly theme dinners that provide the opportunity to try a new cuisine.

From Fit to Fabulous. No matter if your idea of a good time is a hard workout in a state-of-the-art gym or shopping for a sparkling bauble, The House can make your dream a reality. The 24-hour fitness center features a treadmill, Stairmaster and free weights, and Pilates and water aerobics classes are complimentary. There's also plenty in the way of water sports to keep even the most die-hard athlete happy. Couples who want to get out and see a bit of the island can choose from an Island Safari tour in a Land Rover jeep or something more sedate in a van or bus. Lastly, it would be almost criminal to miss the Apagey Chocolate Tour, where visitors can learn about the history of chocolate and see for themselves how this local chocolatier produces its high-end product.
