I often get asked this question and the truth is that you can travel to Barbados any time of year. There are however, various compromises that you may need to make. The weather is changing worldwide, and so these are generalisations based on many decades of historical measurement, but no guarantees. That said, in terms of the weather, the best months are still January through to April, as they are the least rainy and the least humid, and they tend to be a couple of degrees Centigrade cooler than other times of year. The official hurricane season for the whole region is June to November, with any potential major storms occurring between August and October. This doesn’t stop families pouring in during the summer holidays from around the world – possibly because it is understood that Barbados, being the most easterly island in the Caribbean, means that it usually escapes direct hits. If you travel in the late summer or autumn, there is a much higher likelihood of rain.

I’ll admit that one trip in September a few years ago, we had three full days of torrential rain. My husband (Bajan) had never seen anything like it. Having said that, we still had an amazing time and I have never had feedback from any of my September Clients (or even family living in Barbados) which has matched our exceptional trip. So don’t let this put you off September as it is humid and potentially rainy but it has it’s advantages. Price! and if you want a quieter trip, most of the travelling families have gone back to work and school.

So price, well the weather plays an enormous part (along with UK holidays of course). Christmas and New Year are premium prices for flights and accommodation – very much so, as it is such a wonderful place to be for the season. The top hotels are full very early in the year. Flights are taken up well ahead of time, leaving the more expensive seats for late-comers, if at all. Still worth trying if you’re interested. If there is any availability, Barbados Travel Deals will find it. Hotel and Villa rates are also much higher from mid-December to mid-April than at other times of year.

May is a great time to travel as the weather is still lovely and the prices have started to drop significantly. June prices are some of the best, with a slight risk of rain. If you want to go in the winter without the huge cost, November and early December are good. If school holidays are a must, then the May half term will be more cost-effective than the Christmas, Easter or summer holidays.

The only other thing to consider is that the quiet months of September and October are often the time that hotels use to close and renovate and some restaurants and bars may be closed. It is true, but I’ve never found it to be a problem. If there’s somewhere you really want to visit, just ask us and we can tell you if it’s open or not.

That’s it for now. Just call us at Barbados Travel Deals on 0845 6434 606 or 01977 524235 or email at info@barbadostraveldeals.co.uk to get some further advice or options for different dates.

The House, Barbados

The House, Barbados is one of the few Adult-only resorts in Barbados. On the beautiful west coast, a chic, tranquil retreat for adults to unwind in it’s understated elegance. A complimentary jet lag revival massage in a beach cabana greets you after check-in and before enjoying complimentary afternoon tea and evening canapés. Next door is the Zagat-rated Daphne’s Restaurant, in between The House and Tamarind, all properties owned by the Elegant Hotel Group. Morning brings a complimentary Champagne breakfast, a wonderful start to the day. The Elegant Group offer complimentary (have I said ‘complimentary’ too much?) water taxis to the other Elegant Hotels West Coast properties ie Crystal Cove and Colony Club.

If you don’t want to just ‘fly-and-flop’, there are plenty of activities at The House (and of course all over the island – just ask us). Motorised and non-motorised watersports are complimentary and there is a Beach Ambassador service.

The House is a very special indulgence. Reconnect with each other! Treat Yourselves!

Does it seem a tad early to be talking about Christmas 2014? Not for your Christmas in Barbados. In a couple of weeks, the flight schedules will be available and seats start ‘flying’ (ho) off the shelves. I’m writing now because I felt I was disappointing some Clients this year who wanted to fly on key dates over Christmas and New Year as they were asking too late for a palatable price, if even a seat at all. And as Premium Economy and Business seats are limited, they are like gold dust. They disappear very fast. And the cheaper ones go first (as with economy) as the ’supply and demand’ business model for a Barbados Christmas kicks in with little or no leeway for any last minute deals.

Then there’s the accommodation. Of course there’ll be accommodation available but the 5* book up almost instantly – many of course with repeat Clients. If you want your choice of the 4*, you also need to book early. The 5 Elegant Hotel Group properties from the All Inclusive Crystal Cove and Turtle Beach to adult only The House, or the new Barbados Sandals, or Bougainvillea on the south coast, close to St Lawrence Gap, and Mango Bay, All Inclusive, right in Holetown, offer many quality 4* hotels that would make your Christmas merry and bright!

It’s not all bad. Just start planning now and Barbados Travel Deals can help you secure an amazing holiday ahead of the hordes. And then you have your dream Christmas/New Year to look forward to all year.

So give Barbados Travel Deals a call or an email request 0845 6434 606 / 01977 524235 (info@barbadostraveldeals.co.uk) and give either specifics or an idea of your perfect Christmas holiday. We can provisionally book with some Operators even now or you can discuss with your partner/family now and in a couple of weeks when all Operators have their schedules and contracts we at Barbados Travel Deals, will be able to uncover the right holiday at the right price for you.

One of the top hotels to visit in Barbados is the Fairmont Royal Pavilion, a seriously stylish Bajan sanctuary to relax and unwind, with all the elegance and sophistication of old-world charm. Stunning views over one of the best beaches in Barbados.

Arguably unrivalled facilities, with everything for families with children, little ones and teenagers entertained with treasure hunts and the whole range of watersports, meeting the funny little green monkeys that wander around the grounds or getting close up and personal with the greenback turtles who nest very close by – there are daily swims with the turtles. (note: children under 11 yrs old are only able to stay from mid-March to end of October). Time for parents or for couples; garden tours of the amazing luxurious grounds, the leisurely or invigorating watersports, a fitness centre, a game of tennis, and a concierge who will help and arrange all possibilities on and around the island.

Dining is amazing at the http://www.barbadostraveldeals.co.uk/barbados/hotels/fairmont-royal-pavillion.htmlrestaurant or the Palm restaurant, both very highly regarded on the island. All fish is sourced locally and guests can join the fisherman and catch their own Snapper or King Fish which the chef will then help prepare and cook that evening!

All guest rooms overlook the stunning sparkling Caribbean sea and if staying in a Junior Beachfront Suite, you will be fast-tracked through Customs and Immigration on arrival at the airport, you will have a butler service and complimentary canapés served on your private oceanfront balcony each evening.

And lots more. Call us at Barbados Travel Deals on 0845 6434 606 // 01977 524235 for more information and an exceptional deal to stay at the http://www.barbadostraveldeals.co.uk/barbados/hotels/fairmont-royal-pavillion.html, Barbados.

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

After the luxury level of the world renowned Sandy Lane hotel, there are a number of Superior 5* hotels on Barbados. Coral Reef Club, The Sandpiper and the Fairmont Royal Pavilion to name but a few. The Fairmont offers some special complimentary touches which makes you feel you’re getting the personal pampering that takes you away from it all.

There is a 5*+ service for everyone but in addition, the 24 Beachfront Junior Suites offer:
• butler service
• fast track VIP airport arrival service
• complimentary evening canapés
• extended room space – 650sq ft
• sun lounger private terrace – 250sq ft
• additional seating inside and out
• all interconnecting rooms

Although the Royal Pavilion is an adult-only hotel for almost half of the year, from mid-March until the end of October and over Christmas and New Year, children are welcomed with open arms with family/kids movie nights and talent shows and plenty of watersports for all ages.

Feel special! Treat yourselves to a true 5* luxury Barbados holiday! Call us at Barbados Travel Deals and let us help you organise your dream holiday.

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.

Staying with the Elegant Group of Hotels in Barbados, the group of luxury Barbados Hotels which exchange dinner facilites and more, with complimentary water taxis. At Tamarind, guests can now enjoy a new spa activity every day of the week at the new Spa. Thursday has officially become ‘Ladies Day” at The Spa where women can enjoy an afternoon of total indulgence. A massage workshop every Friday allows all guests their wonderful massage. Relax, rejuvenate and restore your well-being at Tamarind, staying on one of the best stretches of beach in Barbados.

Stay at any of the Elegant Group of luxury hotels in Barbados. Just talk to us at Barbados Travel Deals.

Is the hype over The Cliff restaurant in Barbados warranted? As with anything, if you’re going somewhere expecting it to be the best dining experience you’ve ever had, you may be setting yourself up to be disappointed. However, generally the minimal gripes are people unprepared to pay that bit extra on their luxury Barbados holiday. The setting is so stunning, the service delivers the extra couple of miles, the food is beautiful, but it’s how The Cliff puts all together and creates an ambience that is somehow world class.

There are people who dine at The Cliff regularly but for most of us it is for a memorable special occasion or a one-time treat on holiday. It is an experience to savour, to feel special on that special Barbados holiday, to enjoy top class style in a surprisingly casual atmosphere.

In Derrick’s in St James parish, The Cliff can be found roughly in between Crystal Cove to it’s south and Tamarind to the north.
Put a little money aside and treat yourselves! Here at Barbados Travel Deals, we will be happy to make a reservation for you if you want to plan ahead.

Okay, here’s somewhere I haven’t been yet but have been told whilst on numerous visits / Barbados holidays that we should visit the Barbados Wildlife Reserve.

It’s on my list for this year’s visit to Barbados.

The Barbados Wildlife Reserve is in Speightstown, St. Peter’s, where apparently you can get up close with the animals; namely Tropical birds, brocket deer, agouti, armadillo, pelicans and caimans. Highlights are the Barbados red-footed tortoises wandering around and the Barbados green monkeys, known to be pretty light-fingered if they see something they can snatch from you and run.  Very few animals are caged at the Barbados Wildlife Reserve (as the name suggests) which sounds perfect.

Barbados Wildlife Reserve is open from 10am to 5pm daily with feeding times during the afternoon.

I’ll update after September. If anyone can add their experiences of the Barbados Wildlife Reserve, please do.

Call us for more information and availability on luxury Barbados holidays together with other ideas for Barbados excursions / Barbados tours.
