The Hotel

Fine white sand bathed by clear Caribbean waters collides with manicured gardens of Frangipani and Bougainvillea. This is the setting for the family owned Coral Reef Club on Barbados’ famed West Coast. Voted as the best luxury hotel in Barbados, Coral Reef oozes colonial charm and discreet personal service. Combine all of this with the warm and sunny Caribbean climate and you can start to understand why so many guests return year after year.

Spread over 12 acres of lush tropical gardens The Coral Reef Club has 88 rooms, cottages and suites. What all the accommodation has in common are spacious individually designed interiors with large bathrooms, balconies or terraces.

It has long been said that dining in Barbados rivals London, Paris and the South of France in summer. The array of fine restaurants, including The Cliff, The Fish Pot and Daphne’s provide great choice. But Executive Chef Graham Licorish and his team of professional chefs with their experience in some of the finest European and Caribbean restaurants make it hard for Coral Reef guests to find a reason for dining out. However, help is at hand for guests who have pre-booked dinner, as they can opt to eat lunch instead.

The Spa at Coral Reef Club with its four treatment rooms including an outdoor couple’s pavilion, a crystal steam room and hydro pool, blends in naturally with its tropical garden setting. Natura Bisse provides the skin care range, while the signature Lemongrass and Ginger Rub was conceived by Tricia Mouttet, the Spa Manager.

For the active, Coral Reef Club guests enjoy an array of complimentary activities including water-skiing, hobie cat sailing, Laser and Sunfish sailing, windsurfing, kayaking and snorkelling. There is also a scuba diving school on the property, as well as the hotel’s own 30ft catamaran available for morning and afternoon charters or lunch and full day charters. Deep Sea fishing charters for big game fishing can be arranged. For those who prefer to be land based, there is a complimentary tennis clinic from 4-6pm daily (except Sundays) with visiting pros from around the world. Golf can also be arranged.

For couples thinking of getting married or honeymooning in Barbados, Coral Reef offers the perfect setting. Weddings are such a personal and special event in a couple's life, you cannot buy an ‘off the shelf package’. So whilst the basics may have a common thread, couples marrying at The Coral Reef Club discuss their plans with our Wedding Co-ordinator, who fashions the couple’s dreams into the special day.

Getting to Barbados and getting around when you’re there:

From the UK both British Airways (www.BA.com) and Virgin Atlantic (www.virgin-atlantic.com) fly nonstop to Barbados from Gatwick (and Manchester on Virgin) and flights can be booked online or via a travel agent or tour operator. Flying inter-island tends to be with LIAT (www.liatairline.com) which operates much like a bus service hopping from one island to the next.

Barbados is 21 miles long by 14 wide and very easy to get around by taxi, extensive bus network or best of all with your own car. Hiring costs from around £40 a day, but renting for longer always offers better value. Driving around is very easy with generally very good signage and if you get lost you can always ask, but be warned Barbadians are not known for a strong sense of direction. Like the world over, the locals are complaining about the traffic (with good reason), but as you’re unlikely to have a pressing appointment whilst on holiday this probably won’t be a key concern. On arrival and departure it’s recommended you leave it up to the experts and pre-book a transfer or alternatively take a taxi (approximately £30 each way).

Activities and facilities

The Restaurant

Days start for most guests with a stroll through tropical gardens to the restaurant for a hearty or healthy breakfast, occasionally looking up to see ships on the horizon or fast motor boats busily going about their business before the heat of the day. This is alfresco dining at its best.

Daily changing a la carte menus offer choices of fresh seafood and dishes combining classical cuisine with the exotic herbs and spices of the Caribbean. You’ll be hard pressed to find finer food anywhere in Barbados, except perhaps at the sister hotel The Sandpiper? There’s a great rivalry between the kitchens, the beneficiaries being the diners.

For guests who have pre-booked dinner and want to dine out some evenings, there is the option of having lunch instead – perfect for those with a good appetite as during the winter you’re spoilt with an extravagant buffet including salads, pastas, hot and cold meats and fresh fish; not to mention the sweets.

The bar adjoins the restaurant and offers respite shade by day and at night is the perfect setting for pre and post dinner drinks.

Activities for the lounger

The Beach
The west coast of Barbados has long been known for its beaches. A new project creating off shore reefs and installing groins is creating the tropical beach of dreams – fine sandy beaches, crystal clear waters and shady trees to rest under. For those that like to wander you can stroll in either direction.

The Pools
There are two pools at Coral Reef, one almost forgotten located by the two villas, perfect when you want to escape the crowd. The main pool is surrounded by lush tropical foliage perfect for those who like to swim, paddle or for instant cooling after tanning under tropical skies.

The Spa
The Spa at Coral Reef is Colonially inspired and set in a tropical garden paradise and you can’t help but relax on entering, unlike the more Sanatorium style of Spas that exist. Open walkways allow warm breezes to continually flow, emphasising the notion that interior and exterior are one. The facilities include a luxurious 'open sided' Relaxation Room, an outdoor Hydro-pool with shaded cabanas for post treatment leisure, a Thermal Suite with a serene Crystal Steam Room and Experience Shower and a Spa Lounge offering secluded relaxation. Finally, a chic Manicure, Pedicure Room commands striking views over the treetops of the property. Natura Bisse, provides the skincare range of choice. To complement Natura Bisse, an exotic range of body treatments has been created exclusively for The Spa using locally sourced plant life and fruits. A team of skilled therapists perform massage, facials, wraps and scrubs.

The Boutique
The boutique has a range of stylish resort wear, gift ideas plus of course the usual essentials normally forgotten in the haste of packing
