Barbados: The Perfect Tropical Romantic Retreat


Romantic escapades in Barbados – The most romantic holiday island.

With breathtaking sunsets, silky sandy beaches and glistening clear waters; Barbados is the most perfect destination for an unforgettable, romantic holiday in the sun with the one you love.

Whether you are planning a Caribbean wedding, jetting off for your dream honeymoon or are simply looking for a romantic escape in a luxury private holiday villa; Barbados will create memories with your soul mate that will last a lifetime. From the extravagant and luxurious, to simple and low-key, below is a list of the most romantic activities on this special Caribbean island.



Sunset strolls and stylish cocktails

The beautiful Barbados boardwalk is located on the southern coast of the island in Hastings. It’s best to arrive before 5.30 to stroll up the quiet, tranquil boardwalk where you can take a seat to fully immerse yourself in the moment and enjoy one of the best views of a Caribbean sunset anywhere on the island.

The Barbados Boardwalk

Inspired by the mesmerising Caribbean waters, Drift Ocean Terrace lounge in Holetown has a fabulous beachfront deck, perfectly positioned to sit hand in hand with a cocktail as you watch the sun disappear over the horizon. This sophisticated lounge overlooks the stunning west coast of Barbados and exudes an effortlessly seductive atmosphere with a dress code of ‘No effort, no entry’, giving you the perfect excuse to get dressed up for special date night. 

The Drift Ocean Terrace Lounge, Barbados

Enjoy an elegant evening of drinks with the mixologists at Lime bar who are famous for being spirit connoisseurs that craft heavenly flavor combinations. This chic west coast bar serves every drink with precision and panache, we recommend a mean mojito, cool caipirinhas or devilishly good rum punches, to be enjoyed alongside the live music by the islands calypsonian masters. Be careful though…these potent punches and enticing Caribbean rhythms have been known to cause increased heartbeats and dancing feet!

Happy Hour!


The Food of Love

Barbados may be a remote tropical island, but it is renowned for having some of the most exceptional, high-end restaurants offering a deliciously diverse range of worldwide dishes…with a side serving of incredible sea views. 


Experience the ultimate romantic dinner date at the highly-exclusive restaurant ‘The Cliff’. Start your evening of romance with a pre-dinner cocktail at the upper-level bar to take in the breath-taking sea views. Your torchlit cliff-side table then awaits to delight all your senses. Hear the sea gently rolling against the rocks whilst watching sting rays elegantly dance in the lit up clear waters below as you savor the restaurants’ world-class cuisine. 

The Cliff Restaurant

This is one of the most famous restaurants on the island, so we recommend that you make a reservation as far in advance as possible, especially if you would like a seafront table as in high season as there will be a waiting list.



Long, Lazy Beach Days

Barbados is famous for having some of the best beaches in the Caribbean so whether you are prefer a surfers paradise or a tranquil sunlit bay, it is the perfect place for any sun seeking visitor.

The Platinum Coast is the most glamorous and luxurious area of Barbados and is home to the world-renowned Sandy Lane Hotel. The Sandy Lane beach club is famous for its signature pink beach towels, immaculate white sand and exciting choice of water sports; making it a popular destination for celebrity guests and the world elite. Sit back and relax with flawless beach service delivering a fabulous array of perfectly chilled drinks and delicious snacks directly to your sun lounger as you soak up the Caribbean sunshine whilst people watching.

Sandy Lane Beach

If you prefer a more secluded and scenic beach day, we recommend the incredibly picturesque Bottoms Bay. This beautiful, expansive stretch of soft white sand is lined with gentle swaying palm trees and vibrant turquoise waters. Tucked away on the south coast of Barbados and sheltered by the high coral reefs, this quieter beach is an idyllic picnic spot followed by a romantic afternoon stroll in the sunshine with calm turquoise waves gently lapping at your feet.

Bottom Bay Beach

Relax and Unwind

The award-winning spa at Sandy Lane Hotel will transport you to another world. This decadent retreat is 47,000 square ft with polished marble, rapturous winding staircase and large luxurious treatment facilities nestled in a beautiful landscaped oasis. Treat your loved one to a truly relaxing, decadent day of bliss with personalised, world-leading treatments and luxurious tranquil surroundings.


For couples, we recommend the ‘Signature Romance Ritual’. This unique treatment is a bespoke couples treatment that will leave you truly relaxed with the warmest memories. It begins with a foot ritual in a candle lit room with rose petals and soothing aromatherapy followed by side by side full body massages using Sandy Lane’s
signature sunrise and sunset oils before finishing with a wonderfully relaxing scalp massage. If that wasn’t romantic enough, you are then treated to a feast of chocolate covered strawberries and sip on a refreshing mocktail while relaxing in your own private hydro pool. If this sounds like something you would enjoy contact our Sandy Lane Barbados experts who will be delighted to make reservations for you.




Discover your own piece of paradise with Elegant Address Barbados

The island will seduce you more and more each day with its sizzling tropical climate, palm-fringed white beaches, breathtaking scenery and infectiously charming Bajan culture - You will never want to leave!

Our Time on the Beautiful Island of Barbados! Part Three


Visiting the Island of Barbados

Continuing our blog about our luxury Barbados property rental consultant, Rebekah's trip to Barbados, we were excited to find out about her all-time favourite beach on the island...

"As arguably one of the best beaches on the island of Barbados, Payne's Bay beach is a sight to behold. With long stretches of glorious white sand that's softer than icing sugar all bordered by tropical trees; it's an absolute Caribbean paradise."

"The sea is a sparkling aquamarine and calm with gentle waves, making swimming and snorkeling much easier than the opposite side of the island. Watersports are readily available so if you're done with sunbathing, you can try your hand at jet-skiing and kayaking."

Our Time on the Beautiful Island of Barbados! Part One


Visiting the Island of Barbados

Have you ever wondered what life would be like on the beautiful island of Barbados? Can you imagine lapping up the life of luxury with your own 
private beachfront villa or apartment, taking in the stunning views of the Caribbean Sea...

Founder of Elegant Address Luxury Property Group, Suzan Thompson who has 30 years of island experience,  and one of our luxury Elegant Barbados property rental consultants, Rebekah went on one of our regular trips to Barbados to spend some time on the island and to inspect the sensational properties we feature in our extensive portfolio


"Arriving on the island of Barbados was a welcome burst of gorgeous Caribbean sunshine; a far cry from the increasing cold and snowy weather back home! Although such a trip is extremely glamorous with lots of volunteers for the role! The reason for our visits are to view our properties ensuring that they are presented to the highest standards and that all staffed villas present the exceptional level of service that we demand for our clients.  Our days are full, but we never complain. What a way to spend our time viewing the most beautiful private luxury villas with pools, and beachfront villas and apartments that the island has to offer!

  As well as exploring the island, checking out the best restaurants and visiting the beaches. Our first few days were back to back meetings with our suppliers, partners and agents based in Barbados to view some existing and new properties for rental and sale to feature in our portfolio.

 Elegant Address Barbados are an independent luxury property rental and sales specialist consultancy.  Being independent means that we can view the very best properties the island has to offer without being restricted to one agency.  This gives our clients a full and transparent overview of the luxury rental and sales market in Barbados, and ensures they have a complete overview with a maximum choice of properties to offer.

It is an impossible task to choose a favourite luxury villa or apartment in Barbados, as there are so many stunning and diverse properties each with their own charm and character, but here is a small sample of the properties that we really loved from this trip:
