Completely restored in 2009, the delightful Atlantis was the first hotel to open on the Island’s east coast back in 1883. Today, the property has the same great views over the rugged Atlantic coastline and is the ideal place to relax away from the more popular west coast.

Alexandra is here to help give you the inside track.

Located in the quaint fishing village of Tent Bay, this beach-chic boutique hotel has been immaculately restored by the current owners to bring a modern twist to a traditional Barbadian building.

10 over-sized suites directly overlook the ocean's surf and all have been tastefully decorated with brightly coloured colonial style furniture. Amenities include iPod docks and wireless internet and there is a swimming pool on the property, much needed given the strong rip currents which plague this part of the coast.

The restaurant serves delicious Caribbean cuisine in a stylish setting and the chef takes pride in creating menus using fresh local ingredients. The hotel also has a bar with a very good wine selection.

Why we love it

Long famed for its excellent West Indian Sunday lunch buffet, the new owners of the Atlantis have fortunately kept the tradition alive so it is worth being here on a Sunday to tuck into some of the island's best Bajan food.

Located in the tranquil little fishing community of Shermans, Little Good Harbour’s charm is all down to it being one of the last family-run ocean front hotels on the fashionable west coast of Barbados.

The Lone Star

The Lone Star

Here at Original Travel we know hotels created from lighthouses, factories, prisons and more, but as ‘creative reimaginings’ go, The Lone Star in Barbados is still right up there. The star in question refers to the Texaco service station that has since become the best boutique hotel on the island, with one of the finest restaurants (once called ‘the Ivy of the Caribbean’) to boot.
