Things to Do in Barbados

Located 35 minutes from Grantley Adams International Airport, our beachfront resort sits on the Platinum West Coast of Barbados. The town of St. James offers renowned restaurants, exciting nightlife and plenty of things to do both on water and on land. 

Ask our service ambassadors about complimentary watersports, including snorkeling, sailing, kayaking and windsurfing, or book a local island tour.


Historic Holetown, featuring the Limegrove luxury mall, is a 10-minute drive from our Barbados resort. The boutique and souvenir shops of Chattel Village are also nearby.
