No island in the Caribbean has a reputation for luxury and exclusivity quite like Barbados. One of the world’s premier top-drawer locations and a magnet for the well-to-do, visitors here can look forward to epicurean dining experiences, championship standard golf, world-class shopping, divine pampering and out-of-this-world experiences. Here are just some of the luxuries you can enjoy in Barbados.

Epicurean delights

Home of the most celebrated restaurants in the Caribbean, visitors to the island can expect dishes from world-renowned chefs in chic settings and with out-of-this-world views. The Cliff, with its stunning vista of the coastline, is the most famous of these and such is the reputation of chef, Paul Owen’s dishes, that you may need to book before leaving home to guarantee a table. More modern and with an exquisite, firepit warmed rooftop terrace is the highly fashionable Rooftop Fusian in Holetown. Other outstanding eateries include fabulously French L’Acajou, the exotic Cin Cin and the cosy and charming Champers – all with marvellous menus.

Championship standard golf

Barbados’ west coast is the home of the island’s most spectacular golf clubs. Not only will you discover exceptional 18-hole courses; you’ll also find the full range of facilities and fairways with unrivalled views over the Caribbean coastline. Top of the list is the magnificent Robert Trent Jones Jr. designed, 72-par Royal Westmoreland course, with its pro shop, practice ranges and greens, buggy hire, changing rooms, excellent Club House and even a Half Way House by the 9th.

Others of note include the Sandy Lane Country Club, a previous World Golf Championships World Cup venue, and the Apes Hill Golf Club (open to members from November 2022).

World-class retail

Most people wouldn’t expect to see world-class retail stores on a tiny tropical island like Barbados. However, if you head to Holetown, you’ll find that the Limegrove Lifestyle Centre wouldn’t look out of place in London, Paris or New York. Ideal for a little bit of retail therapy and for buying those last-minute holiday gifts, the stylish centre boasts over a hundred high-class boutiques and stores selling the world’s top brands, everything from Cartier to Ralph Loren – many at duty-free prices.

Devine pampering

Pampering sessions have become a key feature of the modern holiday. It’s your chance to wind down, relax and feel great. Along the west coast of Barbados, you’ll find some truly amazing spas offering a wide range of blissful spa treatments, from simple massages to whole-day immersive experiences.

For the ultimate in body and mind indulgence, make sure you check out the fabulous Singita Wellness Spa at Mullins Beach. The spa offers the ideal setting in which to enjoy massages, facials, manicures, pedicures, reflexology and more. If you’ve landed in Barbados after a long and tiring journey, their on-arrival packages are the perfect solution to get rid of all that travel stress and set your holiday on the right path.

Chic nights

The hub of the nightlife in Barbados is around St Lawrence Gap towards the south of the west coast, here you’ll find quite a lot of bars and clubs with lively music and a party vibe. For something a little chicer and more sophisticated, you need to head a little further north, towards St James Parish. Here you’ll find a more exclusive vibe at places like the Nikki Beach Club – a place for dressing up, lazing on canopied, sun mattresses around the pool while sipping champagne and the island’s special rum cocktails. You can also eat here, with delicious treats like Angus steak sandwiches, pizzas, sushi rolls and Piri Piri wraps to satisfy your appetite.

Once the sun goes down, this chillout bar transforms into an ultra-cool nightclub with live music and DJs, entertainment and dancing well into the late hours. Perfect for party-loving visitors who want upmarket experiences.

Private Catamaran tours

The ultimate way to experience Barbados’ stunning coastline, its myriad of picturesque hidden bays and beaches, and to snorkel the beautiful reefs teeming with tropical fish and inquisitive turtles, is to take a private catamaran tour.

There is a range of exclusive vessels to charter, and these come complete with a personal pilot, onboard amenities, and refreshments including cocktails, fine wines and chef-prepared meals or picnics. If you are really wanting to push the boat out, you can even have a personal valet take care of your needs during the trip.

Where to stay

For easy access to all the luxury activities mentioned here and situated right at the heart of the exclusive west coast is one of the most prestigious Barbados resorts, Royal Westmoreland. Featuring just 250 luxury villas and apartments across its lush, 750-acre private, gated estate, guests have exclusive access to world-class amenities, including its championship standard golf course, state-of-the-art gym, tennis courts and excellent beach club, as well as a housekeeper, concierge and private chef service.
