Yes, there’s more happening at this lovely group of hotels in Barbados. Tamarind, The House (Adult-only), Crystal Cove (All-Inclusive), Colony Club and Turtle Beach (All-Inclusive and the only one in the South of the island). All 4 star with The House and Colony Club a little bit more, but all well worth a stay. We love Tamarind because of the long beautiful stretch of beach. All have complimentary watersports irrespective of board.

Turtle Beach update;
The Waterfront restaurant has been redesigned and more outdoor seating for the beachside dining experience.
Chelonia restaurant has a new seating extended to the outdoor courtyard with a new covered entertainment stage.
Asiago’s restaurant has new lighting and seating and is now under the leadership of a new executive chef, Fabio Brianti.
New menu selections including smoothies and smoked salmon at breakfast, all day snacks, and new and improved a la carte menus in the three restaurants.
The main lap pool has been resurfaced and both pool deck areas have new contemporary lounge furniture with extra plush 2″ cushions.

The House continues to win awards since its facelift, and holding it’s No.1 position on Tripadvisor for Barbados hotels.

As of next month (April), Turtle Beach and Crystal Cove, the two All-Inclusive hotels in the group will be offering all-day dining. Guests can enjoy deli-style sandwiches, burgers, pizzas and other items to cope with those munchies during your busy day at the beach or by the pool.

All five properties and Daphne’s received the 2013 Trip Advisor Certificate of Excellence award.

Crystal Cove’s latest upgrades are mainly focused on the outdoor and dining areas. With new stylish pool deck furniture and an overhaul of Drifters restaurant, now their Reflections restaurant will present an equally stylish new look. Also great news that Crystal Cove will be introducing all day dining.

If you want to be close to a local town for dining and nightlife, it’s quite simple in Barbados. If you’re on the west coast, you are generally close to Holetown eg. Mango Bay, Colony Club, Coral Reef Club, The Sandpiper to name but a few within walking distance, or a little further north, the smaller Speightstown, closer to Cobbler’s Cove, Little Good Harbour or Sugar Cane Club. In the South, the closest ‘centre’ would be St Lawrence Gap, two All Inclusive hotels on it’s doorstep are Turtle Beach and Casuarina. Strewn along the way there are lovely oceanfront bars and restaurants and even open air nightclubs playing Calypso, Reggae, Soca (Soul Calypso) and R&B. It’s always great to find a local band playing at Harbour Lights or The Boatyard , both near Bridgetown or at the Reggae Lounge in St Lawrence Gap. To add to the evening entertainment on offer, take a romantic cruise in the moonlight or take in a show extravaganza with dinner or just simply quietly relax just about anywhere. Barbados has it all! And whatever you do, don’t miss the Friday fishfry at Oistins (south of the Gap)!

Elegant Hotels, the company which owns five hotel properties on Barbados, is considering the addition of a further property on the beautiful island and to further expand onto other Caribbean islands, such as St. Lucia and Antigua.

With the All Inclusive Turtle Beach on the South Coast, perfect for family havens, then Crystal Cove, The House, Tamarind and Colony Club on the platinum West Coast, all 4* or 5* recommended hotels. Crystal Cove is also All Inclusive, and The House is for adults only and next door – with Daphne’s restaurant in between – to the livelier Tamarind on that wonderful stretch of beach.

For me, the Elegant Group have got it right. Their properties are lovely with a continual refurbishing programme, they offer service excellence and their visitors return year after year, hence them wanting to offer other islands and thus becoming a Caribbean hotel company.

For a true luxury Barbados holiday, Coral Reef Club, run by the O’Hara family for almost 60 years, is a grand, even spell-binding vintage luxury hotel on the Platinum coast of Barbados. Just 88 guest rooms, each named after flowers, fruits, trees and shrubs. The five Luxury Plantation Suites are supreme and as such, get booked up well in advance. Travellers looking for beauty, space and style in coral stone and marble and maybe a private terrace with a 12′ x 9′ private pool.

Watersports are complimentary and with the offshore coral reef, snorkelling here is a must or you can learn to scuba dive or polish up on your water-skiing skills at the onsite school. All this plus exquisite dining, an exciting spa, well-stocked gym and tennis courts.

If you want to join a livelier part of the beach, it’s right next door to Colony Club. And of course, Coral Reef Club is within easy walking distance to Holetown, the main town on the west coast.

Back to talking about my all-time favourite, Tamarind on the beautiful west coast of Barbados following a feature in the Telegraph on Tuesday 8th May. My love for it is – apart from relatively affordable for the West Coast style – the long stretch of beach at the southern end of Paynes Bay. I really do think that this stretch of beach is hard to beat in Barbados and as Tamarind offers complimentary watersports, it makes a beach-lover’s stay amazing. On every stay, we take a small catamaran out (complimentary) and just sail up and down the west coast every day. May sound quite boring to some, but there is always so much going on as you pass Sandy Lane and some of the most prestigious hotels in Barbados.

Not forgetting that Tamarind offers a complimentary water taxi to two of the hotels in the Elegant Group on the west coast; Colony Club and Crystal Cove.

I definitely recommend an Oceanfront room as the beach is so stunning.

And with arguably the most sophisticated charm of the Elegant Group of hotels, we introduce the beautiful Colony Club Barbados.  At the Colony Club hotel, the most recent changes welcome the launch of the Culture Concierge, a ‘one stop’ shop for guests to discover the history of the wonderful Colony Club hotel itself (including a property tour with historic and architectural interesting facts) and the wonderful island of Barbados, tying in with the Barbados Tourist Authorities’ ‘Year of Heritage’.

I love the sound of activities such as learning to blow a conch shell, stand-up paddling classes, basket weaving, Bajan Jazz and Lobster evenings on Thursdays.

A Bajan market will also be brought into the resort each Saturday in high season with local goods, stilt walkers (a favourite for showtime here) and the very popular sweets vendor, it’s all about showcasing the local community and their wares, with even a beach art gallery with the work of local artists. 

With so many more activities and for an additional cost, even some outside interests i.e. visiting the stunning St Nicholas Abbey and Hunte’s Gardens to a stop at a local rum shop in Bathsheba, on the east coast! Wonderful!

Experience the Culture Concierge at the Colony Club Barbados and experience the ultimate luxury Barbados holiday.  Find out more about the Colony Club hotel Barbados on Barbados Travel Deals or call us for one to one advice on this exquisite luxury Barbados hotel.  We will also provide you with the latest and best prices available for the Colony Club.

The Colony Club Barbados is another of the ‘Elegant’ hotels on Barbados, along with Tamarind, Crystal Cove, The House Barbados (all on the West coast) and Turtle Beach Barbados in the South. All making the most perfect luxury Barbados holidays.

The charming and restful Colony Club hotel was a former private Colonial club and is in walking distance of Holetown for plenty of restaurants and some shopping. There is a bus stop right outside the Colony Club hotel if you don’t want to taxi about.

The beach is narrower up here on the west coast (than for example at The House or Tamarind) but still very beautiful.

There are four freshwater swimming lagoons and a whirlpool and two great restaurants and bars. Spa services, exercise facilities, two tennis courts and a library with internet access.

The Colony Club also offers complimentary water sports including including snorkeling, sailing, boogie boards, kayaking, windsurfing, water-skiing and stand-up paddling.

Of course there is a complimentary water taxi service to the other west coast Elegant hotels and if meals are included in your board, you can opt to have your meal at another Elegant hotel whilst visiting.
