The Sandpiper

The Hotel

Barbados is well known for its luxury hotels dotted along the length of its Caribbean West coast, but often overlooked is the idyllic and exclusive Sandpiper hotel which is perhaps fortunate for those guests who have found this boutique hideaway and who chose to return year after year.

Wayne and Karen Capaldi run The Sandpiper with meticulous attention to detail without sacrificing the relaxed manner of the Caribbean. Karen's family, the O’Haras, own and manage the bigger sister property Coral Reef Club, which is a short walk away along a fine white sandy beach shaded by swaying palms and overhanging Casuarinas which is sometimes referred to as the Platinum Coast.

With just 47 rooms, 1 & 2 bedroom suites, the Tree Top Suites and now the Beach House as well, The Sandpiper is set in lush gardens filled with tropical flora, which creates an atmosphere of ultimate privacy. All the accommodation is spacious and individually designed with large balconies or terraces. The one and two bedroom suites have comfortable lounges, which can be used by families as additional sleeping accommodation, and a small kitchen. For those looking for that extra touch of luxury the 2 Tree Top Suites have wrap around balconies with private plunge pools, separate sun bathing area and a covered terrace with a large table ideal for al fresco dining or alternatively spreading out your newspaper to study whilst sipping something cool away from the heat of the day. They also boast perhaps the best bathrooms in the Caribbean.

Fine dining is not an expression, it is a fact in Barbados and whilst there are many superb restaurants on the island that compete with the best London, New York and Paris have to offer; the rivalry between The Sandpiper’s Christophe Poupardin and Coral Reef’s Graham Licorish means guests are always spoiled and need never stray, except perhaps to check up on the competition.

Guests staying at The Sandpiper have full use of The Spa at Coral Reef and are whisked to and from in air conditioned luxury. With its four treatment rooms including an outdoor couple’s pavilion, a crystal steam room and hydro pool all set in a natural tropical garden setting, it is the perfect place to pamper yourself or your partner. 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, The Sandpiper offers guests an array of complimentary activities including water-skiing, hobie cat sailing, Laser and Sunfish sailing, windsurfing, kayaking and snorkelling. There is also 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 for adults and children with visiting pros from around the world. Golf can also be arranged.

For couples thinking of getting married or honeymooning in Barbados, The Sandpiper offers the perfect setting. Weddings are such a personal and special event in a couples life, you cannot buy an ‘off the shelf package’. So whilst the basics may have a common thread, couples marrying here 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

Just a short stroll through the gardens is the restaurant which opens early for those looking for a healthy or wholesome breakfast to start the day. Daily changing a la carte menus offer choices of fresh seafood and dishes combining classical cuisines 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 Coral Reef Club? 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 from a very varied lunch menu.

A bar adjoins the restaurant and offers respite shade by day and at night is the perfect setting for pre and post dinner drinks. For those spending time on the beach and not wishing to stray far from their lounger, even for lunch, there's Harold's Beach Bar.

Activities for the lounger


The Beach
The west coast of Barbados has long been known for its beaches – fine white sand, crystal clear waters and shady trees to rest under. For those that like to wander you can stroll in either direction.

The Pool
The pool is located next to the main bar, so it is the perfect location for those who like to swim, paddle or cool off after tanning under tropical skies, but still be close to a cooling cocktail.

The Spa
The Spa at Coral Reef Club 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.

For guests of The Sandpiper an air conditioned car will take you to the Spa and wait to bring you back thus ensuring you lose none of the benefits of your treatment whilst returning under the sun.

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