Opulent. Mesmerizing. Exclusive.
Three words to sum up Sandals Barbados, a brand-new retreat in St. Lawrence Gap. Offering the height of luxury in three unique villages, this exclusive property prides itself on its inclusive exclusivity.
Situated along the famed Dover Beach, the all-inclusive Sandals Barbados seamlessly blends luxury (think Butler Elite service and zero-entry access to the largest and longest lagoon pool on the island) and authentic Caribbean charm.
Accommodations. Refined elegance is a hallmark throughout each of the property’s 280 guest rooms and suites. Among the select features are rooms with a soaking tub on the balcony, butler service and new swim-up suites. Guests in the Butler suites enjoy personal butler service, 24-hour room service, and VIP check-in, while those in Club Level suites can take advantage of Club Sandals concierge services including private check-in, all day room service, and access to the Club Sandals Lounge.
Fine Dining. With 11 fresh dining concepts, guests of Sandals Barbados will be spoilt for choice when it comes to unique flavors and experiences. Guests can sample the freshest Caribbean seafood and Barbadian cuisine at Schooners or experience regional Italian cuisine at the open-air Portofino’s. The Café de Paris never disappoints and when the craving for sushi hits, there’s the Soy Sushi Bar. Other options include Butch’s Chophouse, a New York-style steakhouse; Kimono’s, a vibrant Japanese grill; Bayside, an open-air eatery featuring international cuisines; and the Bombay Club, Sandals first ever Indian restaurant. Pop by The Mariner Bar & Grille for a new take on Happy Hour, sample classic gastro-pub fare in the Merry Monkey or if pizza is what you crave, then a visit to Dino’s Pizzeria for a slice of classic Neapolitan-style pizza is in order.
