Luxury Barbados & beyond with Meg
Meg experiences luxury Barbados
Meg, Manager at our Malmesbury shop, was lucky enough to experience luxurious Barbados on her recent trip to this stunning island. Meg explored some of the very best hotels, beautiful white-sand beaches and discovered the best places to eat out.
"Barbados did not disappoint, if anything it completely exceeded my expectations. Not only did I learn so much on this trip, I was also lucky enough to do things some people can only dream of. I’m really excited to share my experience with the next person who wants to travel to this beautiful island; I can’t stop talking about it!"

Meg Reviews the Best Barbados Hotels...
Fairmont Royal Pavilion, Barbados
7 nights from £1,797pp
6th September 2017
Oceanfront Deluxe Room with breakfast
Meg says: "Fairmont is a chain of hotels which provides guests with exceptional service and standards. With just 72 rooms, the hotel itself feels larger as it is set within 11 acres and situated on a half mile stretch of beach. Elegant and colonial in style, the Fairmont is one of the most exclusive and luxurious resorts in Barbados."
Cobblers Cove, Barbados
7 nights from £1,855pp
30th April 2018
Cobblers Garden Suite with breakfast
Meg says: "Greeted with champagne upon arrival, the service here is extremely lovely and welcoming. After politely excusing themselves, the staff made sure they had a drink with their other guests, which is a custom they always make sure they achieve on a Tuesday night. The aim of this hotel is to make sure guests feel as though they’re staying at a ‘home away from home’ and this is definitely reflected in the way I felt about this place. Cobblers Cove, is a small, cosy hotel with British owners who provide guests with an intimate and cosy stay."
The House, Barbados
7 nights from £2,181pp
3rd October 2017
Oceanview Junior Suite with breakfast
Meg says: "The House, as the name suggests, is aptly named as it has the atmosphere and feeling of being and staying in a house! It's small and intimate and importantly, adult only. Chic and contemporary in décor, its 34 rooms are elegantly decorated and offer guests the perfect place for relaxation. As it's a smaller property, naturally some of the facilities such as the pool/bar area are smaller but importantly, never crowded as it is more of an intimate resort. As part of the Elegant Hotel chain, you get access to a free water taxi and the opportunity to dine in the other hotels if you wanted to."
Sandy Lane, Barbados
7 nights from £4,156pp
3rd October 2017
Orchid Room with breakfast
Meg says: "World renowned as one of the most luxurious hotels in Barbados, Sandy Lane is an absolute dream. From its plush bed pillows to its exquisite cuisine and everything in between your stay in this hotel will be truly unforgettable. The staff here are the stand out for me. You can see and feel their passion for the resort and this really did show. Not just for us, but watching the staff interacting with their in house clients was very inspiring."
