It's hard to believe that an island just 21 miles long and a smile (14 miles) wide can have something for everyone, but being named as one of Conde Nast Traveler's Most Beautiful Islands in the Caribbean – thanks in part to its pink sand beaches, exotic wildlife and "sunsets begging to be enjoyed with a fresh cocktail' – kind of belies the fact.
And right in the middle of it all is Elite Island Resorts.
Barbados is an island that exudes casual chic, where visitors can dive in blue lagoons and explore coconut groves by day, and head off to a glamorous evening at a club after the sun sets. And in between, Barbados' famed Mount Gay Rum calls out to visitors to sit, relax and enjoy the gentle ocean breeze while sipping something fruity.
For couples looking to explore all that Barbados has to offer, there is perhaps no better resort than The Club, Barbados Resort & Spa. Ideally situated oceanfront on the island's West Coast, this all-inclusive, adult-only destination is ideal for those looking for an intimate get-away set against the stunning backdrop that is Barbados.
Each of the resort's 158 rooms and suites are outfitted with striking dark wood furnishings and brightly colored decor that evokes the charm and joie de vive that is a hallmark of the island. Each room is equipped with either a King or two twin beds, and depending on the room category a view of the ocean or stunning tropical gardens or pool.
Guests of the resort can indulge their taste for almost any type of cuisine, thanks to the restaurants and bars on offer. Guests can choose from oceanfront dining with an international flair in the main Sunset Restaurant to Caribbean classics at Enid's. And no visit to the Club Barbados would be complete without sampling their famous "Green Monkey" at the popular Sunset Bar & Lounge.
When the time comes for a little adventure, guests of the resort have more than enough to keep them busy. With three freshwater pools and Jacuzzi, a tennis court which is lit for night play, an activities program and fitness center, not to mention a host of water sports such as snorkeling, windsurfing, fishing, water skiing, kayaking, paddle boarding and skippered catamaran sailings, guests will be hard-pressed to decide what adventure to have next. If those don't prove enough, there are off-site excursions sure to suit any interest. Choose from a rum and history tour, a sunset cocktail cruise or even a turtle feeding trip, for starters.
And after all that excitement, the spa offers the perfect respite. Rejuvenate and indulge with a signature spa treatment. The Spa & Salon offers massage, hydrotherapy, body treatments, facials, waxing, hair care, manicures and pedicures, along with more specialized treatments, including rejuvenating baths, couples massage, aromatherapy salt scrubs and body wraps (packages and treatments are available for purchase on site.)
The resort's all-inclusive program includes three meals and afternoon tea daily, and unlimited beverages by the glass, plus water sports and leisure facilities. Those who book before April 6 for travel good through April 14 can save up to 45 percent.
