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.

More updates from the Elegant Hotel Group to follow.

When I wrote last about The House, Barbados, I hadn’t realised that it has won an award with Traveller’s Choice as 4th best Romantic hotel in the Caribbean. Yay!! and is now the top of the Trip Advisor ratings for hotels in Barbados at 97%. Now I know everyone should take these number with a pinch of salt but……..you can’t help it. When Tamarind went through it’s complete refurb, I watched as the Trip Advisor ratings climbed – but it was slow due to some previous ratings, which was a shame if people do follow TripAdvisor religiously.

But I had planned to speak of a completely different hotel in this blog. That of the Bougainvillea on the South Coast. It’s so easy if you have read all the blurb about the affluent West Coast, to miss out on the joys of the South Coast. Particularly if a family. No, even a couple or single. Yes, the seas are calmer on the west coast, but depending on the time of year, are still very calm in the South. Bougainvillea sits on a fabulous stretch of beach and has two great restaurants. You can self-cater, there is a small convenience store nearby, or you can easily ‘bus’ it to the Big B supermarket and they will bring you home. I would recommend having breakfast there and self-cater the rest. Barbados Travel Deals can give you all sorts of tips for eating out without the fine dining tag.

5 mins drive – or local transport (see earlier posts or ask us, to see how easy) to St Lawrence Gap where there are lots of restaurants and bars and Oistins, a few mins further, for your Friday night fish supper cooked on the site and with a party atmosphere with locals and tourists alike.

Talk to us at Barbados Travel Deals if you’re interested in Bougainvillea but want to know more. Call us on 01977 524235 or email at info@barbadostraveldeals.co.uk. Happy to chat.

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 canap├ęs. 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.

The Elegant Hotels Group continues to gather accolades from various Travel Industry bodies including a Gold Magellan award for The House in the Standard Room Design category and a Silver in the Upscale Resort/Hotel category. All five properties and Daphne’s received the 2013 Trip Advisor Certificate of Excellence award.

Colony Club reopened on 1 October unveiling the new restaurant and rooms which had been renovated during the September closure.

The House is now Number 1 on TripAdvisor due to their impeccable service. The reviews are wonderful!

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.

And Turtle Beach will also be focussing on their outdoor and dining areas, updating all three restaurants during the next few months.

And with the lovely Tamarind hotel, that makes up the five Elegant Hotel Group’s Barbados properties covering West and South, All-Inclusive and various board options, Adult only and family-friendly.

Highlighting some of the 2012 successes of my favourite group of hotels in Barbados, the ‘Elegant Hotels Group’ so often mentioned in these blogs as they are amongst the more affordable 4 to 5* hotels on the island.
Elegant Hotels Group have a commitment to service excellence, fine culinary experiences and provide the ultimate beach and water sports environment for their guests. This commitment is recognised not just by the travel industry but by the guests;

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.

Just how much of a getaway is Palm Island? My view – just enough. Enough so that you’re a 45 minute flight + 5 minute buggy ride +10 minute motor launch away from the luxury hotels of Barbados. 10 mins motor launch to Union Island where there are some shops and an ATM machine. On Palm Island, phones, TV and internet access is available in the lounge but not promoted. The only ‘busy’ feeling will come from the sea as so many yachts glide by, taking in the amazing Grenadines’ waters and on their way to the Tobago Cays to do a little diving or snorkelling.

Stay at a luxury Barbados hotel such as the Elegant Group’s The House (adults only) for a week and take in as much of the hubbub of Barbados as you’d like, then skip over to Palm Island for complete R & R.

The House, another of the Elegant Group of hotels in Barbados, is also undergoing extensive refurbishment this summer, closing during September and re-opening in all it’s new glory.

The warm, rich wood style of The House, already refurbished in the public areas, will be extended to the bedrooms, with all new beds and french doors onto the balconies which offer those stunning ocean views on the west coast. The bathrooms will also be updated with state of the art showers.

The House is next door to one of it’s sister Elegant hotels, Tamarind, with Daphne’s restaurant in-between.

Relaxed rustic charm with superlative service and champagne breakfasts. What more could anyone want. Book this luxury holiday with Barbados Travel Deals now.
