Five ways to discover Barbados’ luxurious side

There are few places in the world that get us swooning quite like the Caribbean; there are few islands within the Caribbean as desirable as Barbados and, of Barbados’ many resorts, there are none akin to Sandy Lane. Part of the Leading Hotels of World super group, here’s a place to delight everyone – enjoy your five-step guide to paradise

01 Romance

Turn up the romance

On arrival at Sandy Lane, couples will find waiting for them a bottle of Champagne, chocolate-dipped, gold-leaf strawberries and a gift of the ‘mysterious’ variety. These are just a few of the many affectionate touches included within the Romance package. Other thoughtful additions include one candlelit dinner for two (two dinners if staying eight nights or more), a couple’s turtle and shipwreck trip, a full body and ‘Romantic Bliss’ couple’s massage (two of each when staying eight nights or more), plus a lunch and an afternoon tea for two. All you’ll need to do is sit back, relax and focus on your very own romantic renaissance.

02 Family

Bring the family

Sandy Lane offers unmatched family service paired with total sophistication. The Family offer, available until 31 October 2019, allows children unlimited access to the Sandy Lane Treehouse Club (a fully-staffed children’s activity and entertainment centre). It also includes a gift for each child and complimentary dinner for those between the ages 3-12, and access to the Sports Camps – 25 May to 1 June; 20-27 July; 17-24 August and 19-26 October 2019 at no charge. Best of all, up to three children aged 16 and under can share a second room at 50 per cent off the adult cost – meaning everyone will be having sweet dreams at Sandy Lane.

03 Wellness

Revive and restore

The Spa & Wellness package delivers on a soul-soothing, fitness-focused healing experience for two. Amongst the perks, expect full cardiovascular fitness assessments using FiTech technology, 60-minute full body massages, a lunch for two in The Spa Café and Bajan Scrubs all round (taking place within the exquisite 47,000sq ft spa). If you prefer to sweat it out with some morning cardio, the resort features a 2,500sq ft gym, packed with state-of-the-art LifeFitness equipment and offers complimentary classes daily, including Pilates, spinning and yoga.

04 Golf

Par-tee time

Yes, golf is something of a specialty over at Sandy Lane. Those who elect the Golf package, can enjoy three full days of putting and parring on the hotel’s three courses if staying between four and seven nights; five days of golf for stays of between eight and 10 nights, or seven days for those fortunate enough to be staying 11 nights or longer. This package also includes a lunch for two at the hotel’s Country Club or Spa Café. Last but not least, you can use a Country Club voucher to redeem one round of golf on the esteemed Green Monkey course – an uber-exclusive 72 par, 7,343-yard golf course carved from an old limestone quarry ($150pp supplement required).

05 Feast

Feast your eyes

No luxury stay is complete without a dinner at sunset and Sandy Lane’s dining options are as luscious as its views. Diners at L’Acajou can listen to the waves roll in as they tuck into gourmet French and Mediterranean cuisine. Guests at Bajan Blue descend a sweeping marble staircase before moving down to a shaded terrace to enjoy a delectable mix of European, Asian and Caribbean cuisine. And seven unique bars are dotted around the resort, from casual beachside to intimate lounges.
