A hibiscus- and bougainvillea-lined path flanked by towering palms carves its way to the elegant Fairmont Royal Pavilion. Already boasting one of the most exclusive addresses on the island of Barbados, the west-facing beach offers the warm waters of the Caribbean mixed with a sugary white-sand beach.
This 72-room and suite hotel has an enviable beachfront location. The suites have direct access to the beach from their sundeck and offer Butler Service. Exuding an aura of yesteryear, it rarely feels crowded and has enough facilities to keep everyone amused with a variety of non-motorised watersports from the Beach Club. The floodlit tennis courts ignite a healthy competition and the lap-sized swimming pool complete with sun loungers is the ideal place to bask in the sun.
The culinary scene is highly regarded by the locals, especially the Sunday Brunch with the lilt of steel pans. Taboras offers casual beachfront dining and the open-air Palm restaurant offers a formal experience under the stars, both with nightly entertainment.
