Barbados packs a lot into a pretty small area, with the two
contrasting coasts - the wild and woolly east and the sheltered and
glitzy west - separated by a charming and mountainous interior
dotted with former colonial estates turned into elegant hotels or
retreating back into the jungle .
Is it possible to avoid the glitz and glamour? Of course. We at
Original Travel know all the best places to stay, ranging from the
bling-fest billionaires' hangout of Sandy Lane at the epicentre of
the west coast scene to way more understated hideaways on the
beautiful - and virtually empty in parts - east coast.
