Dream Barbados, think Kuoni. Set in spacious grounds on the white sands of St. James beach on the west coast of Barbados, you’ll find the famous Sandy Lane resort. Approximately 45 minutes drive from the airport, Sandy Lane is acknowledged as one of the very best hotels in the world. Located on a stunning, fine, white sand beach, Sandy Lane offers complimentary windsurfing, snorkeling, or Hobie Cat sailing. Motorized water sports, including water skiing and jet skis are available at a supplementary cost.
If you prefer to swim in fresh water, then take to the pool and swim in the serenity of the tropical gardens. Two 18 hole championship golf courses offer challenging play and wonderful views. The 47,000 square feet spa, fronted by a spectacular waterfall which cascades into the large, free formed swimming pool, is quite magnificent. Each treatment suite has a private garden for relaxation, whilst some even have a private outdoor hydrotherapy pool.
Treatments are as varied as you would expect, and highly skilled therapists make sure each pampering experience is one to remember. The spa encompasses a café, swimming pool, relaxation room, and impressive fitness center. There is a fully supervised children’s club for three to twelve year olds, offering arts and crafts activities as well as drama, sports, and games. There is also a teen club. Nanny services are available for children under three at additional cost.
An impressive sweeping staircase leads to the terrace and restaurant, which offers exclusive dining by the seafront. A sumptuous buffet lunch is served daily, and by night there is formal and informal dining, including barbecues to buffets. And an excellent a la carte menu.
Casual beachfront dining can be enjoyed at the beach bar, while other options include the pool bar, spa café, and the country club, overlooking the golf courses. Live evening entertainment, including a jazz band, is enjoyed around three times a week. Sumptuous rooms and suites are impeccably furnished with careful thoughts being given to every convenience and comfort.
