Luxury holidays don’t get much better than this. In a quiet corner of Barbados, hidden well off the tourist trail in beautiful surroundings is a small, exclusive residence known as Sandpiper Hotel Barbados. This luxurious Caribbean retreat is a little-known secret tucked away on St James Beach, on the island’s glorious west coast.


Nestled amongst orchid trees, bougainvillea and palm trees, the Sandpiper Hotel Barbados is a rare find. Everything about this beautiful spot oozes luxury and sings serenity. Wake up to fresh fruit sorbets served on the beach every morning, which is a wonderful way to start the day. Continue as you mean to go on by heading over to the Sandpiper’s sister hotel, Coral Reef Club, where you can partake in their spa and leisure facilities.
