Coral Reef Club
A renowned, award-winning Barbados resort whose reputation is both well-earned and authentic, the Coral Reef Club does not miss a beat, and has enough facilities to match its luxury levels. There is little, if anything, not to love about the exquisite Coral Reef Club, from the minute you meander down the hotel’s leafy driveway to catching a first glimpse of those ornate wooden balconies, tropical gardens and hypnotic Caribbean Sea views which border the property. Upon entering, you’ll be under no illusion that this family-run, boutique Barbados retreat is pure class through and through. It’s a place where bright white pillars are offset against towering palm trees, and each piece of wicker furniture on the sun patio is perfectly placed to either overlook the beach or admire Coral Reef Club’s elegant swimming pool; whether hidden under a shady gazebo or proudly enjoying the midday Barbados sunshine.
Peace and tranquillity go hand-in-hand here, even with its family-friendly credentials as children have their own separate playground, sports equipment and onsite babysitters, leaving adults to float in the pool, kick back on the beach or indulge with a rejuvenating massage, facial or treatment in the spa. Throughout the 12 acres of lush grounds, between paved pathways and blooming flowerbeds, you’ll find luxury daybeds and hidden outdoor sofas laced with plump pillows and throws, an ideal way to simply unwind during the day if seeking a moment to yourself. Then, when evening comes, look forward to gourmet Caribbean cuisine and freshly caught seafood filling a seasonally changeable menu. Al fresco tables and indoor dining space overlook the ocean, surrounded by gentle lighting and soft music to match for a relaxing ambience.
At Coral Reef Club Hotel, as days are spent enjoying a cocktail or the many onsite facilities, tennis, maybe a round on the nearby golf course, you will always have a divine room, suite or villa to come home to. Here, you can expect a blissful fusion of contemporary style and vintage touches, as well as locally inspired artworks and colourful drapes which break up the otherwise cooling white walls and tiled floor. Each space is both immaculate and airy, filled with deluxe furniture, large marble-clad bathrooms and, in the higher category suites, your own private swimming pool. These options are the pick of the bunch both for the pool though also plenty of extra space and secluded gardens, something which also exists in the villas, themselves ideal for families who enjoy outdoor dining and multiple bedrooms. It should go without saying that every room at Coral Reef Club hotel is awash with a suitable array of mod-cons, from air-conditioning to DVD players, however, the beauty of the accommodation here lies mainly in its superb design, décor and the welcome addition of a furnished balcony or patio, ideal for romantic evenings in as the sun goes down. Rounding it all off, between venturing out to nearby Holetown or any of the surrounding bays, the service standards here are impeccable, attentive and subtle at the same time, just another thing to love about the Coral Reef Club.
