Grand Barbados Beach Resort
Simply put, the Grand Barbados Beach Resort is the premier option for beachfront accommodations in Barbados. This beautiful luxury resort is located along Carlisle Bay, on the southwestern coast of the island, and its combination of location, natural scenery, and high-quality accommodations make it hard to beat. The Island of Eternal Summer, as Barbados has been called, is an unbeatable destination for a luxury Caribbean vacation, and staying at the top option among the Barbados hotels is a surefire way to have an unforgettable trip.
The accommodations at the Grand Barbados Resort include different levels of rooms, as well as the unique over-water suites on the resort’s private Victorian Pier. The standard and ocean-view rooms are located on the first through fifth floors of the main building, including one king-size or two double beds, while the executive rooms occupy the sixth and seventh floors and are designed with business travelers in mind, meaning they also include a complimentary newspaper and a work desk. All rooms are beautifully appointed and have been recently redone to include Italian marble floors, soothing pastel walls, and bathrooms featuring marble vanities and luxury bath products.
Carlisle Bay is one of the most popular scuba diving sites in Barbados, and as such, diving is a popular way to spend time during a vacation at the Grand Barbados Beach Resort. The bay’s many coral reefs and shipwrecks are home to colorful sea life and are delightful places to explore. There is a dive shop on-site, offering equipment rentals and lessons, but if you’d rather not go diving, it’s also possible to snorkel, swim, and take glass-bottom boat tours of the area. Other popular outdoor activities at the Grand Barbados resort include sailing, golf, hiking, tennis, kayaking, kite surfing, and fishing, among others. If you like, you can even swim with the sea turtles. The resort’s concierge can help you set up any activities that interest you, whether you simply want to go snorkeling or would rather take a helicopter tour of the island.
One of the most appealing features of the Grand Barbados resort is its location. Unlike many destinations for all-inclusive getaways, it isn’t isolated. The St Lawrence Gap is just a short walk away from the resort, and that area is known for its great restaurants, shopping, and nightlife. The Pier 1 Restaurant and Boardwalk Café at the resort both serve food, but if you’d like to try a new restaurant or go out dancing after dinner, it’s well worth visiting the Gap, as it’s known.
Other amenities at the Grand Barbados include an outdoor pool, a hair and beauty salon, a business center, shops, a fitness center, and even babysitting. There are also conference rooms for business events, and on-site event planners can help you coordinate everything prior to your arrival. There are also wedding planners available, so if you’re considering a destination wedding and are wondering where to go, this could be the perfect place. The package deals at the Grand Barbados include a Grand Wedding Package, a Honeymoon Package, and a Dive Package.
