Barbados An Island Of Luxury
With its white sandy beaches and gorgeous Caribbean climate, Barbados is truly an island of luxury. This tranquil getaway provides today’s traveler with the opportunity to fully immerse themselves into the culture, heritage, adventure, and romance of the island. From world-class recreation to sophisticated dining in the island’s gastronomic gems, there’s luxury to be found in every corner.
The island’s stunning beaches and warm tranquil waters are the perfect place to get acquainted with Barbados’s unique island lifestyle. Picture yourself relaxing on the deck on a luxurious catamaran while gliding over the sparkling crystal-clear Caribbean, past beautiful palm-fringed beaches. Feel your stress melt away while drinking in the breathtaking sights and listening to the peaceful soundtrack of the Caribbean Sea. At lunch-time each Catamaran is anchored in one of many beautiful coves on Barbados where visitors can enjoy a sumptuous meal prepared by some of the Caribbean’s top chefs.
That’s just the beginning! Barbados coastlines are diverse, varying from gentle beaches to rugged cliffs. The western side of Barbados, where many of the island’s hotels are located, boasts some of the most idyllic shores for swimmers and sunbathers. The rugged East Coast beaches are the perfect place for surfers and windsurfers, while the South Coast beaches are popular for snorkeling, swimming and body surfing. Perhaps one of the most famous shores is Crane Beach, named by “Lifestyles of the Rich and Famous” as one of the best beaches in the world and a definite ‘must-see’ destination for all visitors.
While just about everyone is attracted to Barbados’ ideal climate and natural beauty, the island has much more to offer than its diverse coastlines and pink coral beaches. Barbados’ exciting calendar of events boasts outstanding cultural and sporting activities all year round. Whether you want to enjoy the Crop Over festival culminating in Grand Kadooment, participate in the Run Barbados Marathon in December or relax with a glass of traditional Mount Gay Rum after the Mount Gay Round Barbados Race, there is always something to entice you. One of the most anticipated events of the year is the Barbados Food & Rum Festival. Held from October 18–21, the fun-filled event will delight people with a fantastic line-up of festivities including a cook off, food and rum pairings, a fine dining event pairing international chefs with local top chefs, and a Beach Party at the Hilton Resort Barbados.
However, the celebrations don’t stop there — Barbados Year of Culinary Experiences 2018 is here! Savor a year-long gastronomic journey sampling a tantalizing selection of authentic Bajan flavors and spices. Offering some of the finest cuisine in the Caribbean, the island was the first, and remains the only one to be Zagat rated, and has over 100 restaurants from coast to coast — from 5 star restaurants to local establishments with flair. You can experience superb beach dining with the locals under the sun, enjoy a romantic dinner at one of many beachfront restaurants, or visit the Oistins Fish Market on a Friday or Saturday night and take in the excitement and buzz of Barbados’ most popular market place.
Experience luxury at its best! It doesn’t get better than Barbados.
