Sandy Lane Resort

Barbados (3 others), Caribbean (27 others)

About this hotel

  • Unashamedly luxurious with the very finest of service standards.
  • World class spa and three spectacular golf courses.
  • All rooms uniquely feature large private verandas.
  • Exception children’s club for an indulgent family holiday.

A Caribbean institution with a worldwide reputation as the original luxury beach resort, offering indulgent beach stays for couples and families alike (with the exceptional Treehouse Club available for children). Attention to detail and unparalleled service are at the very heart of Sandy Lane with facilities including a world class spa and for golf lovers, 45 holes over 3 spectacular courses. The most exclusive (Sandy Lane residents only) and the most beautiful is the Green Monkey, carved from a stone quarry and designed by Tom Fazio it’s not an experience you can match elsewhere. The Clubhouse is a place to be for sunset views across the course and out to sea; it’s one of four restaurants including the romantic, ocean-view L’Acajou and the more casual (if Sandy lane can do such a thing!) Bajan Blue.

In any country, Sandy Lane would be quite an achievement. In the sleepy, laid-back Caribbean, it’s almost a miracle. The place is a well-oiled machine that seems to operate without a single hiccup or glitch. First opened in 1961, it was a success from the very start. In 1998 it was spectacularly rebuilt to provide all the services and facilities which modern standards of luxury demand. In rebuilding this famous hotel, the staircases, the symmetry, the columns and the glittering, creamy coral limestone rendering – every characteristic Caribbean Georgian detail – were carefully adhered to. The end result is a thoroughly modern hotel on the inside that looks like it hasn’t been touched on the outside.

The rooms

At an average size of 900sq. ft, the rooms here are unashamedly luxurious.

All rooms offer luxurious accommodations with large private verandas. Orchid rooms have garden views and Ocean Rooms enjoy direct, west facing sea views.

Luxury Ocean Rooms are very spacious and in many hotels would be described as Junior Suites.

Dolphin Suites are even more luxurious and have a separate living room.

Luxury Dolphin and Luxury Orchid Suites have 2 bedrooms, 2 bathrooms and a living room and are ideal for 2 adults and 2 children sleeping in the smaller bedroom. The former also have direct sea views.

The Penthouse Suites have 2 bedrooms, spacious living accommodation, are very private and overlook lush, tropical gardens.

The Villa at Sandy Lane is a luxurious 5 bedroom property, ensconced in verdant gardens with its own pool, Jacuzzi, gazebo and private access to Sandy Lane Beach. All en suite bedrooms have flatscreen TV, entertainment system and Wi-Fi access. You'll be spoilt with your own personal butler, housekeeper and chef on hand to cater to your every whim. The villa is perfect for large families or a group of friends and sleeps up to 14.
