After Sandy Lane, there are a handful of superior 5* hotels in Barbados. This blog looks at Cobbler’s Cove, only 4* but another favourite with the international glitterati somewhat more private. Would you like award-winning international cuisine? Cobblers Cove is a foodie haven. It is one of only five hotels and restaurants in the Caribbean to be invited to be a member of the prestigious Relais & Chateaux organisation.

The main restaurant at Cobbler’s Cove sits at the edge of the beach and overlooks the Caribbean Sea and this perfect setting and outstanding local and international cuisine has won the Barbados Gold Award six times; you can even join an early morning trip with Barker, the hotel’s personal fisherman, and then the French trained chefs will prepare your catch for you to enjoy the same evening. Enjoy the freshest local produce on the wonderful terrace restaurant, or take afternoon tea in the sitting room of the Plantation House.

A warm and welcoming luxury hotel, with friendly and attentive staff for all your needs.

Cobbler’s Cove is a wonderfully pampered experience for those wanting true 5* accommodation and service. Call us at Barbados Travel Deals for a great deal on this exceptional holiday. 0845 6434 606/01977 524235

Several people have asked me what changes are being made at Sandy Lane, the world famous hotel in St James, Barbados, whilst it is closed (until September 28th). They are upgrading the soft furnishing in the rooms, designing a new kitchen, and even replacing some of the roof.
When Sandy Lane re-opens, The Spa will be introducing a new line of ayurvedic products — Sundãri — replacing Anne Sémonin, thus offering a choice of the Aromatherapy Associates range or the new Sundãri products. Much to Management delight, The Spa has recently been acclaimed as Travel and Leisure’s World’s No.1 Hotel Spa in The Caribbean, Bermuda and The Bahamas.

The Spa at Sandy Lane will also be hosting two five day yoga retreats in 2013;
Saturday April 27th to Saturday May 4th
Saturday October 5th to Saturday October 12th.

Book early with Barbados Travel Deals to ensure your place on one of these wonderful retreats.

Although Barbados Travel Deals’ website promotes the most luxurious of the luxury hotels in Barbados, from Sandy Lane 5plus * to Bougainvillea, a wonderful 4* mainly self-catering hotel on the South coast, we still offer fabulous holidays in 3* (and less) accommodation, such as Coconut Court, Butterfly Beach, All Seasons Resort etc. I stayed in many hotels on the South Coast in my early visits and have a great fondness for the South Coast. For such a small island, the vibe is quite different on the West and South Coasts (the Caribbean Sea side) and although the West Coast shouts of affluence and super-luxury, the South Coast has a different charm and still boasts luxury holidays aplenty – Little Arches is a case in point.

Barbados Travel Deals can find you apartments to stay in, to act as a base for you to surf, dive, or simply get to know the island. Talk to us.

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.
